Six Word Saturday - Meditation

Six Word Saturday

Meditation brings peace for a while

I love meditating. In the midst of turmoil, it brings peace to my mind for those few moments.

Yesterday was my dad's death anniversary and I've been restless and jittery since then. Don't know why.  I feel out of synch with the Universe today. So this afternoon I did a 15 minute meditation to clear any negative energies, release blocks. Wow that was so powerful.

I've been meditating for many years now but it's rare that I can feel something. I usually feel great after meditating but don't always feel or see anything. But today was a day to feel it.

When I started I could feel a huge weight just below my throat chakra - like a large, heavy hand on me. And then towards the end of the meditation I could feel it lift off. I've never had that before.

I felt great for sometime and then the restlessness started again. So I'll probably do it again tonight.

Please share your meditation stories and if you've had success with any specific meditations, please share them too.

Have a peaceful day. Om Shanti.

Warm Regards

Travel and Food

“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” ~ James Michener

is the prompt by Corinne at from7eight for the Thursday Writer's Post

Yesterday we went to Otaki a little town about an hour's drive from Wellington. We went fruit and vegetable picking and on our way back after spending an afternoon in the sun (and the sun in NZ really burns), we stopped by to have some  local home made ice-cream with fresh fruit. 

Ice-cream on a hot day - Heavenly!
(my 6 words for 6 word Saturday)

Quite interesting to watch as instead of the usual fruit and scoops, this place blends it all together to create a thick smooth ice-cream. You choose the fruits, the ice cream flavour and any other toppings.  

So I chose strawberries and bananas with chocolate ice-cream and topping of nuts. Came out with quite an interesting flavour. Predominantly strawberry with a hint of banana kind of as an after-taste.

Wherever I travel, I like to taste the local Chinese cuisine. Sounds crazy? Actually in each place the Chinese food tastes different. Perhaps I'm biased, but I think the Chinese food in Mumbai tastes the best. 

Which leads me onto my favourite Indian food. And on each of my visits to India, these are the foods I enjoy and must have -  the yummiest food ever. 

Enjoy your day and wherever you are, eat and be merry.

Warm Regards

Introducing my Poetry blog

I've always wanted to start a poetry blog as I've been writing poems for a few years now.

Most of my poems come to me in dreams or in sudden flashes of inspiration.

These are the poems of my soul.

When writing or thinking of my poetry, the words of this song always come to mind for they ring true for me:

I am a truthful man from the land of the palm trees. 
And before dying, I want to share these poems of my soul.

My poems are soft green. 
My poems are also flaming crimson. 
My poems are like a wounded fawn seeking refuge in the forest. 

The last verse says:'Con los pobres de la tierra'. 
With the poor people of this earth I want to share my fate. 
For the streams of the mountains please me more than the sea.

Please check out my new blog Reflections of my soul. Thanks.

And enjoy the song Guantanamera

Have an awesome day

Warm Regards

100 Words - Closed Doors

The Lord has trampled and pulverised me, 
pulled the rug beneath my feet, 
erased every path, 
thrown me into darkness, 
closed every door. 

Then when all is lost, 
your spirit broken, 
a light shines, 
a window opens, 
a path shows up. 

But fear and doubt make you turn away 
You break down that closed door,
to walk the old path.
The cycle repeats again.

Then your weary soul
urges you to surrender to His will,
to walk His path
with love, faith, courage, strength

And slowly you learn
that when He closes a door
somewhere He will open a window.

This post explains my 6 word memoir so this prompt was very timely and very apt.

Wishing you a day when doors magically open.

6 Word Memoir

This month's Blogplicity challenge inspired by Corinne at Everyday Gyaan is to write a 6 Word Memoir.

Thanks Rimly for introducing my blog and handing over the challenge to me.

Writing a 6 word memoir seems like a simple task but oh how wrong was I. It took a good 10 days (and lots of experimenting with words) to find the perfect 6 words that truly denote a sense of me and my life, and I needed to feel them in my soul. I also wanted to bring out my Indian side so that made the challenge even harder.

But eventually the 6 words came to life, my heart smiled and I could feel Heaven nod in agreement.

So here is my 6 word memoir ....

Following Universe's flow with Bhakti and Shradha

Bhakti = heartfelt devotion and love for the Divine
Shradha = unconditional, unquestioning, absolute faith in the Divine

Pacific Ocean

Would love to read your 6 word memoir, so please share in the comments section. 

And tomorrow please check out Karen Brunner's at Finding your fire where words have power!

Warm Regards

100 Words - Lasting Memories

My grandmother telling us stories of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna. I would sit riveted and Lord Rama became, forever, my hero.

Six year old me doing puzzles with my dad each evening.

Watching "Sleeping Beauty" (at least 1000 times) with my daughter when she was little.

Watching my son (at 4 years) make 3D models of houses and transformer toys.

Watching my mum make her delicious lamington cakes - never tasted better ones than hers.

Playing cricket with my brother and reading comics.

Playing with my dogs Snoopy and Fuji.

Some romantic and enchanted moments.

The list goes on!

I'm a little late for linking up, but this is my entry for 100 Words at Everyday Gyaan.

Wish you a day of fond memories.

Warm Regards
