Kem Cho folks? It is almost that time of the year, when the state of Gujarat in India will be getting ready for the most colorful season of the year. The Navaratri festival is round the corner. I am excited, as I will be participating in the at least one of the dance events. Nothing like a cultural get together, to lift my spirits. The whole idea of dressing up traditionally, and meeting up with friends and dancing the blues away is so intoxicating. Folks, friendships are so hard to maintain. Recently, I did not have a very good experience, in this area. It's hard to take back words, once said. Apologies, however sincere, do not have any effect, once the damage is done. I just learnt that, letting go, is the best solution. Some friendships are just not meant to be. Those following my blog know that I have failed more than once now. I have written about this so many times. It will take some time for me to bounce back. The vacuum of losing a friend will still be there, for I value the presence of people in my life. I have to move on knowing that, that person's chapter in my life was only for a short time. They say people come and go but only the true ones stay forever. I say people come and go and you can never know who the true ones are. In the end you only depend on one person and that person is yourself.
Not sure why, but when I am sad, I like to listen to sad, romantic songs. It's Sunday evening, Ghazal time for me. Song of the day is by my favorite duo J&C Singh. What a beautiful depiction of this great ghazal! Only a Ghazal can beautifully express the pain of separation. The song is not helping me, get in a better mood, but somehow, it's helping me heal. Strange but true. All I now need is a glass of wine. More power to music!

No one is above KARMA. The doctrine of Karma is a spiritual doctrine based on the theory of cause and effect. It is a spiritual doctrine based on the philosophy that God is not responsible for the happiness or failure of an individual, rather, we as individuals are solely responsible for the consequences of our own behavior. The problem with that is unjust people need to be held accountable in their next life as well. When dealing with Karma and it's concepts, we must be willing to accept Reincarnation. This is similar to the western concept of what we reap we sow. As it is often seen by ones deeds, actions, and words what type of heart they have and their actions can be justly inspected accordingly. Without having to die to come back as a lesser form of life. Karma is the truth behind the golden rule: do unto others as you would have done to you. Its wording varies from culture to culture. Every judgmental thought brings negative karma (Imbalances the root chakra and creates pain). Every loving and serving thought brings positive karma (Balances the root chakra and creates free flowing energy and brings healing). One must find the place within where only love prevails. Peace, Love and Blessings!
A man is born alone and dies alone; and he experiences the good and bad consequences of this karma alone; and he goes alone to hell or the Supreme abode . - Chanakya
