Let Me Be Yours, Lord


Let my life project your love, Lord,
Open my eyes to see your love,
Open my heart to receive your love,
Open my mouth to speak your love

Let my life project your love, Lord,
Let me bring warmth to those in cold,
Let me be the breeze to those who sweat,
Let me be your blessing manifold 

Let my life project your love, Lord,
Let me put the soothing balm on pain,
On dry lonely hearts,
Let me be the drops of rain

Let my life project your love, Lord,
Let my actions be actions of love,
Let my words be words of love, 
Let my silence be silence of Love

Let my life project your love, Lord,
Please, guide me to share,
You become my passion, oh Lord
Make me your instrument of care

                                        - Amen

Hurting? Not a bad thing…

Feeling hurt? Let the sore wound in your heart breath fresh air… let it absorb the light of new learnings that the painful event brings in your soul… notice that you're wiser now… breath in the light that leads you to newness, to tomorrow… trust this light, it takes you closer to home… let go of the rest, just hold on to love!

Happy Freedom, my Friend!!!

Breaking up with some you love is almost like loosing a dear one to death, sometimes worse. The pain is acute, eyes overflow with tears, and the heart is shattered. Just spoke to a dear friend who is going through a similar situation. A man I really look up to, who is not ashamed to give me a glimpse into his inner world at one of the most difficult times of his life. Let me tell you, his world is an inspiring one, it is full of sadness and yet hopeful.

Most of us, men or women, have cried for love  and thankfully, majority of us moved on either from the person or from the situation. Loving someone is beautiful and being sad for them is an inseparable part of loving. Emotions are like waves, they come and hit the coast with great fury, they then calmly retract back to the ocean. Time, and activities are great healing tools!

Love doesn't always mean sticking together. Love means freedom, freedom of togetherness or freedom of separation. Freedom to support or freedom to let go. Freedom to want or freedom to care. Freedom to be present or freedom to  move away when love turns into something negative. Freedom to keep moving on with love. Love doesn't hold you down. If it does, maybe it is not love after all.

Love is not about guilt. Love means doing the right thing. Love is not about pretending, love is about being honest. If togetherness is not the destination of love, don't force it to get stuck in a strange place. Let love take the lead not our fleeting desires.

True love can be silent, hidden and free of any attachment. Sometimes, true love transforms into prayers, thoughts, good wishes, and freedom for both souls. I pray to God that my dear friend enjoys this newfound freedom. Freedom will make the pain bearable and bring his love to the right destination.

Friend, I am so proud of you for loving someone who probably didn't deserve your love, and letting them go when it hurt the very core of your heart, for choosing freedom for yourself and for the other, and most of all, for being hopeful, for looking at tomorrow, for focusing on those who love you, your parents, friends and God. Honored to be your friend today and forever!

This event is the beginning of the rest of your life! It brings you the priceless lessons that you are learning and will become little lights in your path to peace. Please remember, after a stormy night, there is always a quiet morning breeze to sooth you! Big hug :-)

Born Free and Equal!

We declare that all human beings are born free, equal in dignity and rights and have the potential to contribute constructively to the development and well-being of their societies.  Any doctrine of racial superiority is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous, and must be rejected along with theories which attempt to determine the existence of separate human races - Report of the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance of the UN (2001)

Live Love!

Focus on potential in friendships not on bitterness in relationships. Think about things to be thankful for and building on what is good. Choose to smile, choose to help and chose hope. Help 'people' and put your hope on 'God'. 

Breath in courage and dare to love! Love even if it takes forgiveness, silence, hurt, moving on, letting them be… Cleanse your heart from heavy dirt of hatred and refresh it with fragrance of love!

Live love, love your creator, love yourself, love the nature, love those who love you, love those around you and if you can, love those who may dislike you. Love is the way to go!

Celebrate those who love you while you still can! Hold hands, hug them, give gifts, make a nice meal, write a poem, look into their eyes, sit next to them, appreciate them, feel their heartbeat, see yourself with their eyes, thank God for them, whisper in their ears how much you appreciate their love, make their day today and everyday! Celebrate Love :-) 

O India, My Motherland!
