Happiness is…

snuggling with the sibling on a tattered discarded sofa,enjoying the slow beginning of new day..

Taking a leap of faith…..

and miraculosuly landing on your feet. The world can be surprisingly kind sometimes…

Discovering life is an experience best shared with someone.  Life is a  complex mix of  happiness and sadness, excitement and boredom, hope and dissapointment.  You never  quite know what will come your way. You would like to be prepared for it, but you never really can.  As you peel each layer of this overwhelming  world and attempt to understand its true nature, you may find yourself in tears. But the crying woudnt be worthless. It would be a price for learning and the experience ,when seen in the right light, will leave you enriched and wiser, manytimes over.

You could do all the discovering on your own but its always better to do it with someone.  A reliable  partner who shares his perspective , listens, offers well intentioned advice and occassionally extends a little help in deciphering the hidden messages in life’s twists and turns.  Having company makes the discovery much more fun and a little less taxing.  Its so much better than having to deal with it all, all by yourself.

  5. My dearest, pl do not consider it eavesdropping, but as you are not able to find time to read my blog and I agree that the recent posts are hard to understand, I thought it better to reach you thru this medium. Anyway, I have to tell you somethng that’s imp.
    oh you can eavesdrop mom.. u know too many secrets anyway, so it doesnt matter! lol… i will read ur blog… i have it all in print outs.. now i just need to sit in one place and read it all in one go..

    Life is full of dualities, can’t be changed. But our perception, attitude is in our hands. Thru dualities and constantly changing world, know that there is something that can remain fixed and unchangeable. Find peace in self realization & wisdom which comes by going thru all the experiences of joy and grief,good and bad etc. It gets easier if there is a companion but do not miss the moments of blissful discoveries, they are only yours. Enjoy that. Happy voyage. Wishing you lots and lots of encouragement and joyous moments. Ma

    Wise words… ‘You could do all the discovering on your own but… Having company makes the discovery much more fun and a little less taxing. Its so much better than having to deal with it all, all by yourself.’
