Sometimes watching others working or just sitting on sand counting the waves makes my soul very happy.
A drop of water, if it could write out its own history, would explain the universe to us.
In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans.~ Kahlil Gibran
Thirty years ago a Monday night changed my perspective about life completely.
I was with my two children, daughter 9 years old and son 7 years. My husband was out of station.
On Friday I had met with a friend who promised to visit my house on Monday.
On Saturday I got the news that she was burned to death while preparing dinner for her family.
It was third case of death by burning in my life. My school friend then my sister-in-law and now this.
On Monday morning I woke up with a start. She was supposed to come today. Whole day I was thinking of her. I did all chores as if in a daze.
I was unable to sleep at night. Frankly, I was a bit scared. What if her soul comes?
I have always been scared of ghosts and spirits.
Children were fast asleep. Oblivious of my condition.I was perspiring profusely. I was thirsty but not able to get up and drink water.
I think when we reach the breaking point our conscious takes over and start reasoning.
I thought why I’m afraid of her. She was my friend. I loved her. She will do no harm to me.
I gathered courage, got up and went to balcony. Sat there in a chair fully, prepared to welcome her soul.
Slowly I was becoming calm. I dozed off. Night passed quietly. Nothing happened.
The morning came with a new perspective. I was relieved of my fear of darkness and ghosts.
Spirits really exist
Or, are they figment of imagination
Your faith is their strength
The reason for their existence
If you believe
They are everywhere
If you don’t
They are nowhere

You smile to the mirror
Mirror smiles back
You show the candle to the mirror,
It reflects light
Our face reflects
Whatever you keep inside
Kindness, positivity and cheerfulness
Or, egoism, arrogance and negativity
Whatever you show
Comes back to you
Let your face show the purity of your soul
