I love with my heart – the marvels of Nature. But, then who doesn’t! I wait and watch the star-studded night – listening to the soft stillness… the tone of the universe.  Often, I’m so deeply immersed in the scene that I become sound-proof from other sounds.


Due to the unique capacity of the human mind, I am subjected to many moods – arising from coincidental circumstances and prearranged planning.  Of course, that’s a vast subject on its own whether there is anything such as, ‘coincidental’!


Happiness comes to me more like a tinkling sound… a simple, small dream realized can prove to be a long-lived event for my state of mind.


I am the wanderer who while observing the mega plan of the universe – ponders on who I am. At regular moments, I also get restlessly thinking about my purpose to have been born. My birth links me with those who are not as fortunate as I am – the comparison is another lifetime riddle granting me no clear cut answers.   In such a milieu – an air of turbulence arises; some parts of the turbulence assist me to remain on the path of self-realization.


Depending on my situation, I am at the centre of demonstrative implications.  I could be the doubting Thomas!  I am often very calm and brave, and sometimes I am the opposite.   I have been slain by the people I have loved. On the other hand, the scepter of affection has shown me the beauty of love, and the strength of truth.  There is so much in me!  Without a doubt, I am an ocean within an ocean – rising and ebbing… ebbing and rising….
