Under the infinite sky when we stand…

April 24, 2016

Under the infinite sky when we stand, with nothing but stars above, and the milky way going across, silence becomes the word of moment.  We feel.  We fill our hearts with the infinite love our Lord has endowed upon us.  We feel, in silence, what we don’t speak in words.  Peace so serene that even an embrace is unasked for.  With hand in hand, we look up into the sky, walking on the milky way with our gazes.

Why does it feel so real? So real to brings tears to our eyes?  Tears of fulfillment?  Tears of joy?  Tears of separation?  What?  The sky is dark, the stars are shining, the breeze is gentle.  When do the desires creep in?  Why does the mist turn so dense like it’s a bar on lungs?  Like we’d choke up with a pang so miserable that our hearts will stop here and now.  A sudden heaviness; a half-tear under the eyelid.  Why?

My Lord knows of my heart.  When we two — the two eternal souls — stand beneath the sky, speaking no word, with hearts leaping with happiness of being found by the other, the good Lord watches awestruck, taking immense joy in the serenity of the moment.

And do we cry? No, we don’t!

The Pursuit of Happiness

January 5, 2012

I:  I can’t say it in words.  Gimme a pen.

Zen Master:  I don’t have one.  Tell me, what happened?

I:  I don’t know.

Zen Master:  I hate when you say you don’t know!


Me too!

What to write? I have been told to limit my internet usage. I really don’t know where to stop, or rather I don’t know how to stop, so at least for this post, I am going to set a word limit of 250 words and I won’t write a word more than it.

I had lost my cell in the morning, and that caused me to miss my work today, in turn causing me to stay at home for some extra time, listen and think about the things that I don’t want to think about, so I thought it would be better to get out rather than just flowing away with the situations.

I went out and explored some new places in Nagpur that I had never seen. Missed master a lot! I could never believe such “shaant and prasanna” places can exist in this city. Far away from the crowd, soothingly green, pleasantly moist, Mother Lourd Temple! I have never seen such a calm and serene place! I loved it.

I have skipped the office today and now going to go out to apply for one more exam. Just got a few tweets by @aasmantapku in my timeline: “sometimes i really feel that number of exams i have to give in my life will exceed the hair on my head”; I felt “Me too!” Then “main bewkoof”, again “Me too!”, and finally “all i need right now is a Giant hug :(” What else can I say “Me too!”

Of sky and chains

Under the infinite sky, i’m lying here flat on back, on the cricket lawn here at Reshimbag Ground, just relax, as I had never been for long, thinking of almost nothing – I…

I, who just a moment ago was a free bird, feeling like just heaven, got a call – reminding me of my chains!
