Buddha takes all ideals away.
He takes your very self,leaves an innocent ,virgin emptyness behind.
That virgin emptyness is Nirvana.
Nirvana is not a goal.
It is your emptyness .

Osho The Zen Master

Shree realised why is HE making her empty.
All Praise to HIM


'The loving devotion to the Lord does not come by
one's own efforts ,even though we may long for it.
This cup of loving devotion belongs to our Lord and Master;
He gives it to whomever He likes'

Taken from Shri Guru Granth Sahib
Shlokas of Baba Shaykh Fareed Jee

Searched for my Beloved everywhere vain
wise men asked me to wait ........coz only foolish fall in love.
Spent my life giving others what i have not........
Then The Truth stood n looked into my eyes with all tenderness
n whispered 'you are Me'
my world stopped for eternity.....
And in that silence i saw all my miseries have turned into celebration
curses into blessings.

From all the suffering n pain i was born again..........afresh
like a sunflower.
To receive Him in His heart coz now there is no i no me only Him.

Love is something spontaneous and not acquired.

In Qur'an 2:247 it is given ALLAH grants HIS power to whom HE pleases.

In the words of Al-Hujwiri, near whose grave Kwaja Mo'inuddin Chishti sat in meditation
Love is a divine gift,not a thing that can be acquired by human effort without divine grace...
If the whole universe wished to attract love,it could not.If it made the utmost effort to
repel it ,it could not.

shree found this extremely beautiful.

Life Lessons 4

Patience is one of my hardest lessons,perhaps the most frustrating one to learn.I've never been a patient person,now also not much but still slightly better than before.
One lesson of patience is that we don't always get what we want .
In the modern world people are not used to living with discomfort.Moreover to understand someone else's pain ,poverty , sadness or loss we don't have much time and patience........because patience is waiting.We want answers faster than they can be delivered.Everything is instantly available.
We no longer know how to wait,or even what waiting means.We are so used to instantly getting everything that our sense of waiting is not properly developed.It is nice to have what we want when we want it but the ability to delay gratification is important.
Many of us don't know how to live with things as they are,how to live in a situation just as it is.We think there's a difference between something not happening soon enough and its not playing out of the way we think it should.
The key to patience is knowing that everything is going to be fine,developing the faith that there is a plan.If we think it deeply ....patience is like a muscle it must be exercised and trusted.If we don't use it we wont have strong patience muscle to support us through life's bigger challenges.That's why it is so important to to develop a deep faith that healing is always at work.Despite our believe that things need our assistance ,most of the amazing things that happen in the world occur without our interference or assistance.We don't have to tell a cut to heal ,we don't have to tell a person to fall in love,we don't have to tell the cells in our bodies to divide.There is a power in the world.Trust that all things are moving towards the good even when we don't recognize or see it.
It is no accident that the noun 'patient' meaning person undergoing medical treatment and the adjective 'patient' meaning to tolerate affliction with calmness are connected.They come from latin word 'pati' which means 'to endure'.
We may think the story is about our health ,work,knowledge or our love life and want to change it......actually if we think deeply then we will understand that is is not about those things it is about is about the love ,humor,compassion and patience we bring to our life and its situations.
God and the universe works on us and not on the situations..The picture is much ....much bigger.He wants us to experience love and freedom in our lives.He wants us to experience life to the fullest.The key lies in trusting...........and having patience.

You gave me time [Thanking my Beloved]

You gave me time,when no one gave me time of day,
You looked deep inside,when the world looked away.
You smiled at me ,when there were frowns everywhere,
You gave me love ,when nobody gave me a prayer.

That's why I call you my Beloved ,that's why I call you my Friend,
You touched my heart ,you touched my soul,
and helped me start all over again.
Thats why I call You my Saviour,thats why I call You my Lord,
You gave me love, when nobody gave me a prayer.

You gave me laughter,after I'd cried all my tears,
You heard my dreams,while the rest of the world closed it's ears,
I looked in Your eyes and found the tenderness there,
You gave me love ,when nobody gave me a prayer.

A fleeting thought

My Beloved may never change the pathway that I travel
He may not remove the storms that rise today;
But my heart now safely rests upon this promise;
That my Lord will walk beside me all the way.

He'll go with me through the valleys and the shadows,
He'll go with me through the darkness up ahead,
He may never change the earthly course I travel,
But He'll take my hand and walk with me instead.

He may never change the trials that overwhelm me,
He may not remove the tears that by me to stay,
But my soul he fills with peace that never fails,
For my God will walk beside me all the way.

He may never lift me out of earth's dilemmas,
He may not remove the troubles of my day,
But I know that though I can't evade the problems,
Still my Lord will walk beside me all the way.

A hymn i heard long time back.

This is Shree's Easter prayer.......

Make me servant humble to Thee,
Lord,help me lift up those who are weak,
And may the prayer of my heart always be,
Make me a servant,make me a servant,
Make me a servant today...............
Lord guide me to help the sick n the crippled n blind,
May i seek the lost and the weak make strong ,
With justice serve the poor.
Make me a servant ,make me a servant,
Make me a servant today..............
