Courage, dear heart!

Should I go on?

Or wait it out.

Perhaps when the memory of failures has faded out,

Will I be strong enough

And I’ll try hard enough

Or I’ll just be enough.

The Forest

Don’t wander off, dear heart

Not in the forbidden part of Forest

Not in the places familiar

The fog that still feels warm

Don’t wander off, dear heart

Don’t chase the dragonflies

And try to catch them

What once belonged doesn’t anymore

Focus, old friend

Don’t look for the maze to get lost

What doesn’t belong is free to fly

So fly to the infinite Land, and don’t wander off.

Forgiveness 


Why is forgiveness important to us?

Forgiveness is not about forgetting what someone did to you. Forgiveness doesn’t provide the oppressor a relief from their guilt, as our mind tells us. 

It, on the contrary, releases us from emotional dependence on the actions of our oppressor. 

Forgiveness is about gaining emotional control on the situation. It is important for regaining self confidence, and stability of our ego. 

Forgiveness is an act of liberation. When we forgive someone irrespective of their stance, our mind perceives it as the ability to move on from a situation as tantalising as this. In return, it assures us a whip hand position where we’re superior to the condolences of our oppressor. Together, this conscious self and our mind* liberate one another from this fear of aftermath of being vulnerable in a similar situation again. People might oppress us, and that will hurt but they won’t leave us in ruins. They can’t hold us back in life, both emotionally and physically. 

The biggest obstacle in this path is aggression. It is an enemy to liberation. 
Aggression chains us, and forgiveness is it’s key.

Soul sister

How often do you come across people who are like a complete reflection of you but in a different phase of life?

You feel like there are parallel lives going side by side through and into this cosmos.

It is one of the most wonderful things about the process of living. To find a soul sister. For her to just be in this universe, at the same time as you is a source of utter and complete solace. 

And you know everytime your spark is about to go out, they come back and bring with themselves fresh air to give it the necessary flare. They keep your heart beating and your fire burning and they pledged to it without you even knowing it. It’s like you’re ordained to each other.
