Spring Cleaning for the Soul

I awaken from the slumber of winter.

Time to blow away the cobwebs of worries, doubts and fears
Brush off the dust of resentments and regrets
The past is the past

It’s time to open the windows and let the light in
The light of God and the might of God!
I am coloured by the power of His presence.

The light within once again sparkles
Bringing love, peace and power within
And leaving a beautiful fragrance of happiness for all to share

Let each day be Spring!

 

Om Shanti

Parallel Universe

I live in a parallel universe. One is the physical world in which I am the person I know with the personality, habits and role that I play. The other existence is in the universe within – my own inner world.

At each moment these two universes and two existences of myself are connected by the decisions I make. Every decision and therefore every action that follows affects both my inner self as well as my outer personality.

Silence and stillness are the natural nature of I the soul, I crave for them and search for them, yet they seem so out of reach. Why is this?

With every decision I make I give priority to sustaining the needs of the role and the personality that I am. The needs of the soul get overlooked. Who is this personality I have come to be subservient to? Who is it that consistently takes priority over the deepest and most sacred part of me, the soul?

It is the ego – the one that needs to be recognised, understood and respected. The one that has to be always right and win no matter what the cost. In trying to ensure the ego is sustained I renounce my peace, my happiness and more.

With courage let me decide to give priority to sustaining of the soul, the spirit that I am.

 

Om Shanti

Time to go Home

At the dawn of my journey, on this beautiful planet, my days were filled with joy and laughter in an atmosphere that was fresh, clean, pure and invigorating.

Morning came and all was still well, but slowly followed the afternoon which marked the beginning of a change. The movement and transformation of noon and beyond brought a definite sense of tiredness in my journey. I moved on into early evening and everything continued, as alway, even though the journey and life had now become quite an effort. The dusk of time neared and so my journey.

Late evening fast approached until I was in the depths of night. I tried desperately to hold on to the day. I tried to re-kindle the happiness I use to experience but without avail.

Then, just as the last drops of hope were about to be lost, a memory awakened from deep within – the promise of a new day!

And before the day, there is always the night and the time to go home, the time to rest before the day begins anew.

 

Om Shanti

Sailing the Ship of Life

cloud9

Internally there is a belief that I am the captain of my ship and yet often I find the ship of my life sails in whichever direction the wind of challenges, situations, relationships, circumstances take it.

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to ensure I reach my destination. It’s not what happens that determines my future, it’s how I respond to what happens.

Let me truly accept that am the captain of my ship and the responsibility that lies with that.

Then as the winds of challenges blow and circumstance arises – let me learn, adjust, gain experience and become wiser – until I learn to master the winds.

Then through the choppy waters of life and the stormy days I, the captain, will sail through and reach the other shore – it is my destiny after all.

 

Om Shanti
