Be Still and Know

As I sit with my steaming cup of morning tea. 
Soft spiritual music drifts all around me.
My daughter and my pet dog are cozy asleep in bed,
The rain pitter -pats on the Ashok trees and watershed.
Across the boundary wall the world drenched in the incessant pitter-patter,
My thoughts sometimes blank and other times all a scatter. 
The setting perfect, to pour out my heart,
But, I’m totally empty, in my world all is apart. 

My recent travels and
experiences the whole array,
Brain and  heart totally dysfunctional, in disarray. 
There’s been great learning and joy in my travels galore,
Wonder what one could ask for more?
No one knows that, and life demands to be met head on, 
I half-heartedly sip my tea and then anon.
Flailing wildly for any thought that might make sense,
Outside of my own head and its confusingly tense.

I am floundering in a sea of me. There’s no room to just ‘be’
In my own intellect, knowledge and experiences, drowning scares me.
There’s no time to go sit in a quiet sanctuary,  the perfect setting is fleeting.
Thoughts and memories go whizzing, while my heart goes on beating
This is real life, people, and real life is messy and stagnant.
Memories and reminders all come snowballing…..poignant
 Real life is loud, and I think I’m afraid that if I stop and be still,
Underneath the chatter, there won’t be anything worth saying, nor I will.

 I forget that He calls us to stillness, to a deep sense of calm,
He speaks most clearly in the quietness and it’s like a balm.
In my trying to stay afloat , His presence is sublime,
He makes all things beautiful in his time.

When we are most drowning, He is able to do some of His finest work.
For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
- Isaiah 43:19

That verses make me shiver with anticipation.
Real life forces us to be still and know despite the desperation
Our hearts may be as if, clutched too tight to even beat.
I may be frozen – in speech, to thought, in deed , just still in retreat.
I may not see his works, the new pathways, and the rivers flowing.
I may see nothing from the horizon to horizon of my life, yet knowing.
Yes,  He is at work re-creating. 
Me….. for Me continuously working.


One sees repeated Number Patterns pretty often, do they register?   If you consciously make that effort, pause, sit up you will find its meaning and how it relates. There are millions of explanations you can read about the numbers that appear everywhere you look, the important thing is to understand and trust what they are telling you.  Every culture from different countries  interpret  different meaning to numbers, from Fibonacci numbers  to spiritual, religion, mythology, each  interpretation may be different. We must use our intuition to assess the best fit for the situation, if the situation and the interpretation don’t fit/ click, then there is something more deeper you need to look into,  even though, this first clue may be just a cue to help you move to the bigger picture.

Just remember  to pay attention to the numbers around, in doing so  we use them as receptive tools to our connection to the universe and our awareness, that help with our choices in life. 

We see the same number pattern echoed everywhere we look,
License plates, appliances, the time even pages of a book. 
Hours, days, months, and as time just goes on by,
No coincidences, then our attention are drawn with a sigh.

There is a message/ meaning in the numbers that is meant to be, 
Being attentive to these repetitive patterns, true meaning we will see.
The Numbers hold the right answers for every one of us, 
So give it a go and be alert watch out with no fuss.  
Numerology has its basis in the ancient tradition,
Each number carries its own symbolic significance and vibration. 
It can mark the stages of our soul’s evolution.
As we move from life's, one to the next transition.

These repetitive number patterns is just a timely call,
To focus on certain aspects of our lives, save us from a fall. 
Recognizing, here is something, look deeper within,
Understand and trust, then guidance will begin.

Look into the past, check the present and understand the future,
With all you now have before you, enough to nurture.
Clues and memories, all hidden away, 
Now pull them out with numbers to play.

Repetitive numbers double or triple,
Help you understand all that is to be, very simple.
Numbers, carry personal meanings and of events as well, 
The repetitive numbers that appear, upon them, it's time to delve.

0- You are loved by the creator that's why you are here,
Enjoy your life and have no fear.

1- says new beginnings, knocking at your door
So think of the situation wisely and focus some more.
Do away with the fears and watch your thought,
The Universe conspires and your desire is got.

2- says your situation is taking off, germinating somehow,
So watch and nurture it, with the right mind, just now.
Have Hope.......there is plenty ashore
Don't give up, have faith and  patience galore.

3. The Ascended Masters are watching and guiding you,
Do understand your plans are being vetted and supported anew.
When there is “their” help just at hand,
Do your best and the rest will supporting stand.

4. The Angels are surrounding you, awaiting your call,
They are anxious, to be invited to assist you in areas, ALL.
The situation needs their awesome touch,
Call on them and leave them to help out, just do that much.

5. Hold on to your thoughts while they take flight,
Remember you have all that you need, a miracle is in sight.
A positive change is coming your way,
Endearingly allow it and make room for it to stay.

6.  Focus on the Spiritual aspects of your goal and life,
Material stuff will be taken care of, have no strife.
The Physical/Material world,  leave in God's hand,
Let go of your fears……. it’s His command.

Jewellry is like the perfect spice,
Compliments the wearer a million fold.  
Without a word it makes a statement
Expressing, who you are for all to behold. 

Life is too short to wear boring jewellry,
But remember you just need that bit of glow.
You mustn't be afraid to sparkle,
So give yourself a brilliantly pearly row.

In this crazy rhinestone world,
Don't let anyone dull your sparkle
Remember you are a diamond, shining bright
Unbreakable, as you shine that light and twinkle.

Jewellry is a very personal thing, 
It should tell a story of the person who's wearing it.
They are the vitamins of fashion
So use them liberally and with passion.  

Enjoy each exquisite piece you have,
Handed down or bought with love and more.
While the world doses watch you glow 'n' glitter,
You get to leave your sparkle everywhere you go!

Life's literati "IF"

What if.......
 In the world there is no light, 
Or there is too much for, to fight.
Maybe there's not enough cash to flow, 
Or else the economy goes slow.
No natural  resources for all around,
Nothing is there above or underground.
........ and in our lives 
There is no trust,
there is only greed desire and lust.
Commitments broken promises never kept.
Smiles all gone and everyone only wept.
What if the world began to die
me myself alone and I
........ uncertainity surrounds us
Worry, baffle, fear and strife
How do you end this all to make a beautiful life
Change  for the better, challenges need to be overcome as an offshoot.
Fear creates "What Ifs" never allow it to take root.
Create a space for the good times  to come in, forever to stay
Once it begins, for sure it wont stop and will stay that way.

"God is supernaturally tuned in to our frequency. His blazing eyes take in our slightest stir. His holy ears prick at our softest whisper. Better still, He's in close proximity when we cry." -Lisa Harper


Breathe-in, Breathe-out, hold, breathe again
Release all the stress and  pain
Breathing helps you survive
It helps you go on with staying alive.
The time you have  lived  through the years
Woven with warm sunshine and cold  tears.
It is the experiencing of that life which counts
Its your life, the  sum of  which, it all amounts.
Breathing helps in letting go,
Try it  and see,  fast or slow,
Soon you'll be breathing much, much  more. 
Knowing every breathe...more than before.

Be You

If  being kind hearted to people all around, 
got you nothing but hurt, rejection feeling of being let down.
Be who you are and show  what your heart can do,
Never change for anyone, let them see the goodness inside you.
Your  thoughtfulness and the goodness,
The caring that you show, 
Just continue walking the path,
Till they see that glow.
Even then, If they stay blind to the fact
and they really dont react,
 Its for them to learn to see, 
"Theres so much in it for me!"
 Don’t change yourself. 
They will change. 
They need to to know. 
Their life, how why and when, to rearrange
Just keep being to your self beautifully true,
Be abd be the wonderful kind you.

A good read........

One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.

He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision.
The director discovered from the CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never had a year when he did not score.
The director asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" the youth answered "none".
The director asked, " Was it your father who paid for your school fees?"
The youth answered, "My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.
The director asked, " Where did your mother work?" The youth answered, "My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.
The director asked, " Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?" The youth answered, "Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.  The Director said, "I have a request. When you go back today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.  The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back, he happily requested his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to the kid. The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that.  It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful  that his mother shivered when they were cleaned with water.

This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fee. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his graduation, academic excellence and his future. After finishing the cleaning of his mother hands,
the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother. That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.Next morning, the youth went to the director's office.

The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, asked: " Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house ?"The youth answered, " I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes'  The Director asked, " please tell me your feelings."  The youth said, Number 1, I know now what is appreciation. Without my mother, there would not the successful me today. Number 2, by working  together and helping my mother, only I now realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done. Number 3, I have come to appreciate the  importance and value of family relationship.*

The director said, " This is what I am looking for to be my manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person  who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life. You are hired.

Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and as a team. The company's performance improved tremendously.

A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a  manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good  academically, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement. He will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more. If  we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying the kid instead?*
You can let your kid live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them  experience it. After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money  to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day  their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person. The most important thing is your kid learns how to appreciate the effort and  get things done.

You would have forwarded many mails to many, and many of them would have back mailed you too...but try and forward this story to as many as  possible...this may change somebody's fate..
