Happy New Year

As we all gear,

To embrace another year,

May our minds be without fear,

With the message ringing loud and clear,

That we are what we are,

And our life too is as we are.

To change all that is 'without'

We have to go within, and live 'inside-out'...

Thus even when we are down, are 'out' never,

Because the mind is without fear.

So may your faces light with smiles ear-to-ear...

Not only this year...

But year after year...

Wishing you all a very peaceful New Year.

Each thing is best in its place

Each thing is best, truly, in its place. This saying of yore carries one of the core messages and the essence of life in a unique way—just as each and everything, every moment, every being in life is unique. Each one (thing) is thus the best that could be there, at that moment, at that place.

And it indeed stands to be hailed as an universal truth; while failing to understand and thus rejecting it, carries the pathogen of discord, whereby all that is different is deemed as an act of defiance (a being, being defiant) to all that one stands for—being and doing. Thus, we create a diseased life—individual, as well as collective; and societies, teeming with technological advancements are found deficient in the understanding of the technology that life is, with its own logic. Hence, the dim situation, reflecting with great intensity the ‘stand’—of one and many and at times, one too many—which stands on an understanding which requires much light.

None can replace any one…as all is…and all are unique.
