sublime life



The life we want to live on this earth

Depends on the several factors

Having clear aim in life

Will to challenge the challenges

With iron will and going ahead

With complete determination

With sincerity to handle difficult tasks

Improvising on every step that we take

With confidence to fructify our efforts

With complete belief on the Creator of ours.

Ups and downs of our existence

Are the important features

Sadness and happiness

Are the two aspects of our life

When we are slighted or disrespect is showered

Due to an event so unexpected

An emotional change happens

In our being so sudden

That we are transported

From happiness

To sadness

According to the event

That has so happened

We sometimes reminisce

Our sad events

More than it is needed

Even in happy moments

We don’t enjoy the happy moments at all

Since we’ve been engulfed

By the sadness which though has passed

But we don’t want to leave this bad moment at all

And want to make it part of our life

Feeling sad even in happy moments

Has deeply impacted our lives adversely

Robbing peace of mind severely

A realization should dawn to us with experience

That if dark night is there presently

Then dawn of the day is not far off to view.

Although we have no realization

That happiness and sadness are the passing illusions

If former comes

The latter cannot be far off

We all play our part

The way we’re taught to play

In the echo-system we’re living

The way we think and perform our Karmic deeds

Positive Karma turns the poverty of our thoughts

Into richness of our thoughts

And positive Karmic actions

Add up to our Karmic credit

Our positive thoughts and karmic deeds

Determine the opulence of our self-realization

Or self-consciousness or self awareness

While observing the drama of life being played by us

Improvising himself/herself at every step taken

In close association with our Creator

And turn our existence a veritable Heaven on this planet.

The lives of saints and mystics

Had achieved a balanced way in their lives

They maintained composure

Both in happy and sad moments

They learned more lessons

From sad moments

Than the happy ones which bedeviled their paths

Which they practice with joy

To establish their connectivity

With the supernatural being ultimately

For their Moksha – liberation

From births and deaths

And be near Almighty God

For good

With peace all around

Without any fear of real life’s ups and downs.

These self-realized beings

 Also discern the eternal essence of our soul

While the experiences of our existence are transient 

Our soul being eternal acts merely as a spectator

And a serene traveler with us

Observing the drama Maya or illusion of our life

In the reel of our real secret of our existence

While enjoying the role in the scheme of things

Which in our physical world are happening

Thus the manner we want to live this life

Depends on our thoughts and action that we do in this life

Happiness and sadness are the two sides of the same coin

If former is there the latter cannot be far to be experienced

Poise and balance is hugely hence is of immensely required.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.
