Ask vs Surrender.

When we ask God, we limit ourselves and our possibilities,
When we surrender to HIM, we are, unlimited possibilities !
When we ask, we have one path,
When we surrender, we have multiple options and paths.
When we ask, we think we are asking for the best,
When we surrender, we get the best !
When we ask, we think we are asking in good faith and expect results,
When we surrender, we have all faith, no expectations and no doubts, and get the best results.
When we ask God, we trust only ‘US’, and try to control,
When we surrender, we trust HIM and know that HE will control.

When we board an aircraft, we surrender to the pilot, who is qualified to fly us safely to our destination , and ofcourse we know not, the controls in the cockpit.
But, when we board an aircraft called life, we fail to surrender to the pilot of the aircraft, who knows our destination, and has all controls of our life’s gambit !!

ज़िन्दगी और मौत का फासला

Ic: unsplash.com

जिंदा हैं, तब जीना भूल जाते हैं लोग,
मौत जब सामने खड़ा हो, तब जीना चाहते हैं लोग।

जिंदा हैं, तब हजारों मर्तबा मरना चाहतें ह लोग,
जब मौत गले लगाना चाहता है, तब जीने का एक मौका चाहतें है लोग।

जिंदा हैं तब अपनों को जाने अंजाने चोट पहुंचाते हैं लोग,
मौत जब दस्तक देता है, तब अपनों को प्यार न दे पाने का अफ़सोस करतें हैं लोग।

जिंदा हैं, तब मिलने, हालचाल पूछने आए न आए लोग,
मरने पर श्रद्धांजलि के पुष्प चढ़ाने, आ ही जाते हैं लोग।

जिंदगी और मौत का फासला तय करते-करते,
कुछ खुशी खुशी जी ही लेते हैं जिंदगी,
मौत के अंजाने डर से, कुछ
पल पल मरते रहते हैं, जिंदगी ।।

मेरी बिटिया

Pc : Shutterstock

छोटी सी बिटिया मेरी,
जाने कब बड़ी हो गई,
नन्ही सी परी मेरी,
जाने कब सयानी हो गई।

हाथों में लिए घुमाती थी जिसे,
हल्के फुल्के अपने इशारों से हंसाती थी जिसे,
उंगली पकड़ के चलना सिखाया जिसे,
अक्षर अक्षर जोड़कर पढ़ना सिखाया जिसे,
सिरहाने रखकर कहानियां सुनाती जिसे,
गोदी में लिटाकर लोरी सुनाती जिसे,
छोटी सी बिटिया मेरी
जाने कब बड़ी हो गई,
नन्ही सी परी मेरी,
जाने कब सयानी हो गई।

गिरते पड़ते पैरों पर खड़ा होना सीखा जिसने,
आज अपने पैरों पर खड़ी हो गई,
हंसते हंसाते, गिरते संभलते,
मुझसे भी ऊंची हो गई ,
छोटी सी बिटिया मेरी
जाने कब बड़ी हो गई,
नन्ही सी परी मेरी,
जाने कब सयानी हो गई।

अपने तोतले बोल और गानों से, दिल बहलाया जिसने,
अपने नन्हे हाथों से मेरे बालों को सहलाया जिसने,
दुपट्टा को साड़ी की तरह लहराया जिसने,
देखते ही देखते, गुड़िया मेरी जवां हो गई,
छोटी सी बिटिया मेरी
जाने कब बड़ी हो गई,
नन्ही सी परी मेरी,
जाने कब सयानी हो गई।

My thoughts..

Sometimes, my thoughts translate into blurbs,. A part of my vocabulary, spills out,. Breaking out into a piece of prose or a an imaginative poetry….

Sometimes, my thoughts translate into action,. A part of me, performs some deeds,. Adding to my list of Karma, good or bad….

Sometimes, my thoughts translate into words,. A part of me, voices the thoughts into words,. Making it a part of my language…

Sometimes, I realise whatever I do,. Is totally in me, in my control, My writings, my actions, my language are mine, they are all just mine and I can choose them all…

My thoughts can take me on a long drive into the future,. Or they can rewind and play scenes from my past,. But I can choose the road to take or the film to watch, now and this moment, today..

A realisation dawned, and hopefully, will be fulfilled too 😊

Relax and Destress… Meditation for House holders…

Wooden mannequin posed in front of a greyish background with colorful splashes behind it

Wake up early in the morning,

Freshen up and stretch your hands,

Take a deep breath and get the power flow into them through the universal magic wands..

Then slowly place your left foot forward,

And then the right foot forward

Till you head to the kitchen.

As you reach the kitchen,

Relax your breath, and slowly try to become aware of yourself and the work that lies ahead of you…

Take another deep breath and become totally aware of your surroundings..

Now slowly open the refrigerator,

And feel the flow of cool air,

Inhale the cool air, feel the peace…

And fix your gaze on the veggie tray,

Stand erect and just stare at it, feel the silence and the peace….

Till you hear the alarm from the fridge beep,

To say the door is open too long..

This is where you take control, become aware, come into your senses,

Just commence your work, and get on with your work.

As you chug along the day, completing the rest of the cooking or the household chores, and feel you are done for the day…

The inner you will wake up again, with the toughest million dollar question..

Trying to figure out, Oh!! what do you cook for dinner????

Then you look to reach out to family for some help with your dilemma,

But you soon realize, you have to deal with this on your own.. It’s your karma,

You begin your inhalation and exhalation,

Open the fridge, and remain in a state of deep meditation,

Until the fridge alarm beeps…

To all my friends who deal with this, day in and day out.. You are not alone. There are millions all over the world, going through this dilemma..We are in it, together. So relax and meditate.
