From The Heart

From the heart a few words flow tonight ~

Jo Bhi Mila, Jaisa Bhi Mila Tumko,
Sada Diya Hi Hai Tumne Gurudev, Liya Hi Kya Hai Tumne...
Jo Bhi Diya, Jaisa Bhi Diya Humne,
Sada Uske Liye Kuch Liya Hai Tumse, Diya Hi Kya Hai Humne

~~~~ Shat Shat Pranam Baba ~~~~

Whatever you received, however you received,
always You have only given Gurudev; what have you ever received....
Whatever we have given, however we have given,
we have always taken something for it from You; what have we ever given....

~~~ Infinite salutations Baba ~~~

Walk Unto Light...

Baba lights the lamp
Only to clear our damp

Leave all the blames
Quit all the games

Quit all the talking
Begin simply walking

Baba can't walk for us
Baba will walk with us

Blessings will be blown
The path will be shown

With teachings applied
And love supplied

Will only light shine
Of yours and mine

In the end light will stay
Rest all will wither away

The Shade Amongst Shades

Found one of my old pic and while looking at it few words flowed, which i noted below in this text here and then looking at the words, some thought arose to make it more beautiful by adding something to the pic, and it was done. All just a creative expression to share with my friends... 
In the journey of life filled with all shades,
I watch through the window of my soul
Where the me and mine all fades
And just one shade I see as a whole.

Through landscapes of the earth I travel
Through cries and laughters i walk
Letting the mysteries of life unravel
I wish to be silent; let life talk. 

In the journey, a shade covered my sight
I realized it was the shade of my Master,
Now the landscapes seems like a canvas 
On which life's movie unwinds faster.

Every destination is only a step to the Divine,
An extra little revealed at every station
i realize in this infinite journey of mine
Every step has become my destination.......

Prayers to Brahma, Vishnu, Maheshwara

Had a crazy thought, but thought it would be crazier not to express than to avoid the thought :D

Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. Creation, Sustenance, Destruction. Past, Present, Future. i was just pondering on how we experience the three only in struggles in the human form. Struggling during birth, struggling with existence, and struggling at the time of death.

People of light, after the light dawns into their lives, realize that one has happened (birth), the second is at hand (existence) and the third (death) is yet to come. What is right now at hand is existence. But that also goes in struggle because of the urges in sustaining, holding on to, grabbing, seizing, possessing, accumulating, planning, maintenance, safeguarding, investing, producing humans, etc, etc, which are all various expressions of the individual struggling ONLY to sustain itself.

Was thinking that even in simplest of things in life, the three are always involved. Unless a perfect samadhi stage is reached, even a simple thing like meditation comes under these 3 truths. One 'creates' an ambiance internally to enter deeper within, but staying there can be a struggle or even if not a struggle one does not want to come out of it, which is also a struggle to sustain that experience because one does not want to die (come out).

The world around is nothing but sheer madness in pursuit of sustenance.  Birth and death have never been a problem on earth, it happens in minutes, but sustenance takes a lot. To pull that sustenance to the maximum is what is defined as life on earth.... lol.... Alas, to lose out every single struggle of sustenance to another awaiting struggle - death. If death is a struggle, so will be the next birth too, and so on and so forth.

When all is this silently observed, spirituality, scriptures, Gurus, teachings, all make so much of sense. It dawns upon how Brahma and Mahesh are just entry points to portals. Entry and exit into different realms. When birth becomes death and death becomes birth. Birthing into any earthly being is an entry point to earth but is an exit point from where the realm the soul has come from. Death from earthly existence is death for the 3D plane but is a point of entry of birth into the next realm that the soul is moving into. i learn how Brahma and Mahesh are the key entry points who both are present in birth as well as in death, and how Vishnu continues to sustain, on earth and in all the other realms. He is still sustaining and maintaining the soul for this never-ending entry-and-exit game, until one chooses to opt out of it.

How one loves to please Brahma so that one can be born so that one can live, here or there. How one loves to please Shiva so as not to die, here or there, due to the urge to continue existing. How one loves to be blessed by Vishnu, so that one may continue to live mortally, that is a foolish idea. Rather one could be blessed by the preserver, Vishnu, who also plays such an important role.

i realize my prayers could be better. A prayer to Brahma to birth me into immortality, so that i may not be born again into any mortal limited existence and not that i crave to be birthed into any living form only to fulfill my unfulfilled desires. A prayer to Shiva to grant death to this looping game, so that i may just 'be' in immortality, and not that He postpone mortal death. A prayer to Vishnu, Narayana, the preserver, the sustainer, not that He preserve me in the body and it's never-ending needs but that He blesses me to preserve the awareness of this beautiful awareness to the fact that my purpose of embodiment is beyond mere survival and it's illusory struggles of preservation. Oh Sustainer of life, sustain my immortality by sustaining my awareness in light and in my true form....
