Love, for me is…

I have been nominated by themissiontomars   and  Ameena to share my insights on Love, in ten sentences, each having four words. Well this is quite a limitation to describe an emotion beyond limits. I think , God before creating anything in the universe would have created love because love is a harmony that creates order in our lives, in the world and in this universe and without it, there will be total chaos. Well Now i think i am breaking the rules so here are my ten sentences about True Love in rather poetic manner

Love is Krishna’s Flute
Love’s the poet’s muse
Love is beyond condition
Love’s a spiritual connection
Love is everlasting Flame
Love is Heart’s Rain
Love is Meadow’s shade
Love is beyond Grave
Love is True Sacrifice
Love is always alive 

Love for me is sacrifice. We sometimes, do not realize the gravity of love for us by our loved ones until they sacrifice for us, and sometimes they even sacrifice  their lives for us.  This is my favorite quote –

The Perceptions Square

March 12 2010 gravestones

There lived a restless soul in the mist of time,
Who was in the quest of truth of life .
He started his journey in the world of darkness,
in the world of sufferings and in the world of ignorance.
He searched for glory and searched for signs,
But he struggled to find the eternal sunshine.
All hopes were fainting, all joy was lost
And he waited for the miracle from the sky above.
Then a light came from a sage, he met.
The truth is felicity in the doing for others,
The victory is Karma and not in its result,
The felony is idleness and not endeavors,
The truth is perseverance, the sage said.
He took the light and decided to spread,
And he washed the miseries and pain of others.
He rose and fell but never got success,
But his joy was Karma and not its result.

India of my Dreams

We often say very proudly that our country is a perfect example of, “Unity in Diversity”; but is it really in true sense? Look around, we are so divided among ourselves. We so often see people fighting over religion , we see forced conversions as if there are separate Gods for all of us. These groups or politicians or leaders take advantage of the common man for their own vested interests. We can go on with this, criticizing others but the real change will only come when we will change ourselves.
We have forgotten our roots. We call ourselves , “Bharat Vasi”. Do we know the meaning of it? And if we know, are we following it? No, Of course not!
Our founding forefathers had laid the foundation of this country with great wisdom. The name of our country “Bharat” is derived from Sanskrit, meaning the place where the people are devoted to light ( wisdom) as against darkness. It seems very odd, we are not at all following it. The holy book ” Bhagvada Gita”,not at all talks about religion; it talks about the way of life, The Karmic life. It talks about the eternal quest of knowledge about humanity, compassion, love, Karma and spirituality. It is very strange that this country, whose fabric had been knitted with sacrifice , compassion, wisdom; see its citizens fighting over religion and for their selfish desires.
In this cruel world, where some people have forgotten humanity and are murdering innocent people and not even leaving children in the name of God, has really forced us to search that element of humanity , that element of wisdom inside us which is beyond religion. We have forgotten that wisdom. Yes I dream of that day when this country will embrace its past again and will move ahead in the future with that wisdom which had given birth to this great nation. I dream for my country in the words of Tagore-
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
