BLOSSOMS OF LIFE!

There’s some magic in the air.

The same breeze which blew everyday carries a new fragrance,or is it the old scent of the falling flowers? The advent of the spring with love or the advent of love in silent steps as spring of the season.

Whatever ,the world is a mystical place now, with beautiful chandeliers of the old times,glowing and illuminating the once stranded path.The hanging charismatic memories burning as the lanterns of pendants.

Love blooms again in silence ,the fragrance in the diffused atmosphere is the same,whether years ago,or today .

Time cannot hold back the moment once  it arrives with a blossom .

Dear Friends,

“The meaning of life for a mystic, is solely a journey from love to love. The condition of the soul before the journey is a condition of love; what is expected during the journey is love; and when the soul returns after the journey, it returns to love.”
 – Hidayat Inayat Khan
The above statement is rather befitting to introduce the very reason ‘Suroor of the Soul’ – a metaphysical anthology was penned. It is of abundance, diversity and contrasts, manifesting a richness of voices and internal enthusiasm to commence dialogue and delve deep within the esoteric realm of self-realisation through mysticism in order to unveil and unite with the ultimate happiness – ‘Truth. The illustrious anthology is meant to ignite a divine spark – resonating through our corporeal and celestial messages of Love, Harmony, Beauty and Truth – intricately woven with ever-growing spheres of tolerance and unity…

DAILY PROMPT : LUXURIOUS

What’s the one luxury you can’t live without?

Daily Prompt: Luxurious.

Won’t  it be great when we own everything that we desire for or wish of possessing !!!

Simultaneously it is as boring as a dead bird,for our dreams die the moment we acquire it…Life is a beautiful journey which continuous to excite and enthrall us with its ever surprising bends and incidents.The adventure of crossing such unseen hurdles and reaching the top has its own enjoyment.

Ever thought ,why mountaineering or trekking is exciting and interesting,for we  view the world around us with a  different perspective  while walking on the path . The courage of moving without looking back , the fearless thought of reaching the peak adds to our character a dab of dynamism. The scenery which we perceive  looks  new and charming. We enjoy every level of the difficult path and our each breath to the fullest. The enthusiasm to attain the goal is more while we are struggling to accomplish it than when we actually reach it.

It is this effort that drives us on the path of our life with zeal.The luxuries of life can provide comfort to our physical body for sometime ,but in long run they fail to keep our zest . The essence lies within ,the  happiness that we feel and experience is the most treasured and cannot be bought .It is in fact a luxury.

For luxury doesn’t mean to acquire something by paying money for it. It is n’t the cushion on the cuddling sofa,or the lampshade at the corner,neither the penthouse in a posh locality,nor the swimming pool inside the apartment that gives us immense pleasure…

it is the life ,the fresh breath of life which is the true luxury!

For my soul, ” To breathe freely, is to live in luxury!

It is the sense of excitement that we get from small things which gives us the extreme satisfaction and contentment.

Imagine  what a luxury it would be ,to sleep amidst the tulips,watching the clouds float over the blue skies,the butterflies dancing on the fingers and the soft breeze swaying the hair.A tiny cottage  of wood,where fresh air would be the exotic air conditioner and chirping of birds would be the song of the morning different for every season…

Daily prompt: Iam a Rock!

 

 

Written for : Daily Prompt: I Am a Rock.

Obsessed with self ,a person never tries to acknowledge his shortcomings or his flaws. A rather typical nature of a human to remain aloof and shelved within the hard shell when in times of distress or sadness.

Many are known to crib all along the life about every  happening  . Else they get into the habit of mumbling to draw attention to their minutest details.

Every individual has a special characteristic and his own unusual way of dealing with times of strife.

I have come across many people who have been rather different in their upheaval times.

The characteristic of every man depends on the type of life he/she has lead and the way he/she has been brought up.

The upbringing ,the mental blocks and the social involvement of a person shapes his/her disposition.The cruel and sour remarks of people,or outrageous behaviour of some,sweet gentle nature or the suspicious trait visible through the thick dark wall are all results of such experiences.

Asking for help or allowing people to help you is also a kind of courageous act which requires much humbleness and resilience in you which can bear the burden of accepting help from others. For such a behaviour in your view is like ,you are incapable of sorting out things,or it would simply show your weak nature.

Such negative thinkings disallow people to share their thoughts and problems with others just for the sake ,what would others think ?

But humanity is a bigger canvas and small things as such don’t paint the picture as we think.

It is the sense of gratitude that would allow us to share our thoughts with others . It brings the compassionate nature of us and reminds us at every juncture to take care of every other individual that we come across in life who is in  distress.

 

“Even if I stood like a rock under the scorching sun

without a shade or a river to quench my thirst

yet  I owe my gratitude to the Almighty

for showering few drops of rain

to grace me with the endurance

face the rough weather….”

 

So even if we do not accept help from others ,there has been some assistance provided to us in a disguise which we need to recognize and realize .

Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Feel

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.—Kevyn Aucoin

“We are what we choose in life,we become what we feel about life”.

An invisible force which touches the innermost core of our heart  and causes upheaval , yet remains unseen, neither can we deny its existence nor can we reject its feel!
