Nothing and Everything

beach-cliff-coast-164229

 

You learn to swim,
Then you swim so hard to get across the ocean
And you get far, so far, but not all the way across
And you can’t it seems.
You can’t reach the shore
Unless you give up and drown,
Drowning is the final step to that shore.
Humbling and rewarding in one breath,
Such is life.

Died Not Dead

How does an ocean of love
Evaporate
And leave behind a desert?
Those precious nights, those pure moments
When two souls collided in love
A mesmerizing explosion, a supernova
How can they leave behind nothing but a vacuum,
A black hole in your chest?

Shifting To Your Perfect Parallel Reality

In my last post, I talked about the philosophy of parallel realities. If you have not already read that, click here – Parallel Reality Simplified and come back to read this post so it makes better sense.

She Is Wonderful

I pull her back,
I push her away,
She surfaces slowly 
When I am looking away.

I push her up
Then drag her down
leave her hurting 
On the ground.

Force Of Nature

Delicate hands
A feeble frame
Dreams too heavy for
Her shapely shoulders
And a penchant
For running into
Troubles and turmoil.

A Single Ray Of Light

Add a little bit of your love
To wherever you go 
And Whoever you touch.
Sprinkle it out there
For whoever needs it,
Spray it in air
For whoever finds it.

Look What The Fools Did

Up_Jonathan_Frappe

They heard some legends of it,

Some folk songs, Some tribal tales of it.

Foolish they were, they confused it with reality,

They had dreams, they didn’t care for actuality.

They were not kids anymore,

It was not cute anymore.

When I Met Maheshmurti Leni Sahebrao Jadhav (Leni)

Maheshmurti Leni Sahebrao Jadhav (Leni)

Sometimes we meet someone, a complete stranger and something good happens, we feel lighter and more cheerful, almost hopeful, in their presence. Meeting Leni is very much like that, just by being around her, you feel good, positive. She has this infectious cheerful energy but that energy does not come from innocence or naivety. After only a few conversations, you can tell, she has seen the ugly unkindness of life and you can tell, she has stayed strong through it all. It’s so great meeting people who have been tested by life a number of times, but life has still not managed to rob them of their energy or dim their light.

Road Less Traveled By

IMG_2282

10 months ago I left a position of marketing manager at a luxury sports travel company where I was heading marketing for North India and I took a travel break.

I always wanted to travel, but I always had reasons to postpone it. I decided I can’t keep waiting for life to hold my hand and take me on adventures. When I first realized that I want to quit my job and decided to take a break and travel before I start looking for another one, my friends told me how it is a huge career risk. In India we don’t appreciate career breaks, they were right, we don’t. Did I want a life in which I had never taken any risks or a career that was at best, safe? NO. I served my notice period, saved some money and started my journey. Continue reading “Road Less Traveled By”
