This poem is from Ajit Peter. I just love the way words flow out in his poems...
in a jiffy the poem is in his heart and mind and down in a paper........
I have a keen desire to write poems with a similar touch.....
the flow...the lyrics...and the beauty
in a drop of tear a world to see
in a drop of rain joy to be
in a tick of a clock eternity
in a single cell life to be
in a touch of feather hearts be shy
in a single word the spirits to fly
in one friend a world to see
in a wink of an eye love to be
in a ray of sunshine warmth in heart
in stars twinkle joy be got
in a single flower love to tell
in a smile to cast a spell

a drop of joy
a drop of tear
a simple smile
a simple wink
a grain of sand

little in the world
yet a lifetime of thoughts

there is many a slip
between the heart and the lip....
we want to say something, but feel it not right
so as not to offend others and bring them in a dim light
but we have no control about what is in heart
since the truth emits like dart
later we make excuses by way of saying

hold it dear, don't take the wrong meaning
that was not what my heart did hold
there was an error in the way it is told.

It is up to you

Read this in a magazine ..... real good one

I gave you life, but I cannot live it for you
I can teach you things, but I cannot make you learn
I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe
I can teach you to be a friend, but I cannot make you one
I can tell you about habits, but I cannot say NO for you
I can teach you about goals, but I cannot achieve it for you
I can warn you about sin, but I cannot make your morals
I can pray for you, but I cannot make you walk with God
I can tell you how to live, but it's up to you to live it.

a new day

each day is born anew
it holds everything for you
and yet it is filled with nothing
so that you could fill it up with
something good and true

random thoughts

I am the master of my thoughts
I have full control over it

It is all up to me to decide
how I channelize the flow of my thoughts.

Little faith says - "You can do it."
Big faith says - "You will do it."
But great faith says
"It is done.

Nothing is impossible when you believe in yourself."

art of living

The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change;

for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.

- Charles Langbridge Norgan.

Never be embarassed to showcase your talents.
The woods would be too silent if no birds sang except those that sang the best.

Walking with a good friend in the dark is better than walking in the light alone .

Great friendships are not necessarily about finding similarities. It is more about respecting the differences.

Nobody in this world can be with a plain heart because someone comes and scribbles in your heart with lots of care and affection in it.

Life laughs at you when you are unhappy
Life smiles at you when you are happy
But Life salutes you when you make others happy.
(Charlie Chaplin)


Truth is hidden by the golden veil of the mundane.
Pierce through this thin glittering sheath and know you are the sun

If you are generous, blessing comes to you in abundance
(Art of Living Thoughts)

random thought

Too often we underestimate
the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,
an honest compliment or the smallest
act of caring all of which have the
potential to turn a life around.

- Leo Buscagita

When a person expects care from you
it does not mean that there is no one to care for him/her.
It only means the care from you is really special
and means much more than that received from just anyone else.

What a mother feels on looking at her baby soon after its birth....... ..
What a sister feels when her brother apologises for a mistake done (and vice versa)
What a father feels when his son hugs him and says "Dad, I love you."
The feelings between two friends in a true friendship ....
These and many such feelings can never be defined in words.
These feelings create a special bond between the receiver and the giver and it says
"I love you and am always there for you."

One never gets a second chance to make a first impression.
But remember the first impression is
not the last chance to make a good impression

Never look for outer beauty,
it may shade.
Never look for color of the skin,
it may go old one day.

Look for the royal heart which misses you every day...!!!!
For in that heart is the beauty and color
which you can never get in any other way
and which will never leave your side whatever you say

"Remember that you are unique. Just like everyone else"

The quality of our life is determined by the state of our mind
The more you give, the more strength will be given to you.
Be happy. This is an order as well as a blessing from the Almighty

Never play with the feelings of others
because in the process you might win the game
but the risk is that you are sure to lose the person.

self respect

To free us from the expectations of others,
to give us back to ourselves -
there lies the great singular power of self respect.
- Joan Didion

Thursday, August 6, 2009

I am I and you are you

I do my thing and you do yours.
I am not in this world to live up
to your expectations and you are not
in this world to live up to mine.
You are you and I am I, and
if by chance we find each other,
then it is beautiful. If not it can't be helped.

- Frederick Peris

Don't forget

Forget about the days
when its been cloudy, but
don't forget your hours in the sun

Forget about mistakes
that you can't change now, but
don't forget the lessons that you've learned

Forget about the times
you've been defeated, but
don't forget the victories you've won

Forget about misfortunes
you encounter, but
don't forget the times your luck has turned

Forget about the days
when you've been lonely, but
don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen

Forget about the plans
that didn't seem to work out right, but...
Don't forget to Always Have A Dream

joy in giving

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin,
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain

-Emily Dickinson.

When asked - What is Forgiveness?
A little boy gave this lovely reply.
"It is the wonderful smell that a flower gives
when being crushed."


Two thoughts that change our attitude.
What do I think of myself,
when I don't have anything


what do I think of others
when I have everything.

Dancing with God

A beautiful mail that I received

Dancing with God

When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing 'dance' at the end of the word. And I remember reading that God's will is a lot like dancing.

When two people try to lead, nothing feels right. The movement does not flow with the music. And everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.

When one person realizes that and lets the other lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music. One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back or by pressing lightly in one direction or another.

It is as if two become one body, moving beautifully. The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person. And gentle guidance and skill from the other.

My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.

When I saw 'G', I thought of God: followed by 'u' and 'i'.

'God' 'u' and 'i' dance. God you and I dance.

As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust tht I would get guidance about my life and once again, I became willing to let God lead.

My prayer for you today is that God's blessings and mercies are upon you on this day and everyday. May you abide in God, as God abides in you. Dance together with God. Trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life.

Love all

Starvation for love never ceases by receiving love
It ceases only by giving love.
Love all and love all the time

freedom in relationship

A Loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to himself -
to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me;
to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based
upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.

Saturday, July 25, 2009


Best relationship need
no promises, terms or conditions
They just need two wonderful people
One who can trust
and one who can understand


Confidence never comes if we have all the answers.
but it comes when we are ready for all the questions

Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and
bringing more of what you want in your life. Be grateful for
what you already have and you will attract more good things

just a thought

Realize things before it is too late
Accept things rather than delay them
Shower love on people before you lose them
Life just comes once, love it while you live it.

1. Nothing comes to us on a platter in this world

One has to labour and earn anything he needs

be it knowledge, money or fame.

2. Success demands singleness of purpose.

The only way to succeed in life is to give it everything.

The road to accomplishment, it is is said,

beckons only those who can persevere and persist.

Your respect is not in the words spoken to you in your presence
but words spoken for you in your absence


1. Time can make us forget some memories
but there would be some memories which make us
forget the time and those make the life worthwhile........

2. Don't go the way life takes you
but take life the way you go
remember you are born to live
and not living because you are born

make an impact

Even if we give little bits of ourselves to the world around us,

if we are able to offer our fully integrated true self in those few moment,

it will make a tremendous impact.

just a thought

When you learn to realise your potential you grow in life

. When you learn to realise others' potential you grow with maturity in life.

In effect, maturing is all about growing with learning.

Let's learn to grow and mature.


Ask the successful person how to finish a work...

But ask the experienced person how to start a work

One more day

one more day in your life.

It is not just because you need one more day of life.
It is more so because someone else needs you for one more day in life.

Winners and Losers

The Winner is always a part of the answer
The Loser is always a part of the problem .

The winner always has a plan
The loser always has an excuse.

The Winner says "Let me do it for you"
The loser says "That's not my Job".

The winner sees an answer in every problem
The loser sees a problem in every answer.

The winner sees a Green near every sandtrap
The loser sees a sandtrap near every green.

The winner says "It may be difficult but its possible.
The loser says 'It may be possible but it’s difficult

Complaining is it????

Whose fault it is when my eyes see the thorns instead of roses? Everything appears scratched because there is a scratch in my spectacles. I can't turn my life right by always speaking about what is wrong.

Resolve: I will not complain about anything.

Some Good lines.

  1. Make another day count rather than counting the day.
  2. The wrong kind of people dislike you for the good in you. But the right kind of people love you knowing even the bad in you which makes perfect friendship.
  3. There may be a hundred step between two friends. But when in need of friendship, just take one step towards a friend....a good friend will take all the 99 steps and be there for you. That is true friendship.
  4. Life can be happier and stressless, if we remember one simple thought. "We cannot have all that we desire, but God will give us all that we deserve."
  5. What is friendship: It is a ship loaded with love, care and share crossing the sea of heart having no wheels of sorry and thanks.

Saturday, July 4, 2009

If everything in life is happening as you wish then you are lucky. If not, you are very lucky because things are happening as per God's wish.
This beautiful world can be seen only through the eyes of a happy heart. May your heart be filled with happiness always and never get tired to see and enjoy the beauty that god showers.

Monkey - key = Monk

Our mind is both the monkey and the monk
and the 'key' that converts this monkey into a monk
is Mind Management.

Tightrope walk

Becoming an adult is neither physically maturing,
nor the eligibility to vote almost overnight.
It is a state of mind when
one is able to look at every moment of life
with equanimity and is cognizant
of the pros and cons of things in his life.
It is this transition, as is frequently said, that makes or breaks a man.

Random thoughts


It is not the outside of a balloon,
but it is the inside of the balloon
that takes it to the top and all balloons are made
of the same inside stuff.
Similarly, every human being is made of the same inside stuff.
What is possible for one human being is possible for every human being.

The Oath of Originality

In the history of the world there has been nobody like you.
To the infinite of times to come there will be nobody like you.
You are rare. You are unique. You are original
You are the only one of your kind.
Live up to this glory of being a unique individual.

1. Never design your character like a garden where anyone can walk.
Design your character like the sky where everyone aspires to reach.

2. Funny is it not - when you miss someone you message them to let them know that your are thinking of them, but the truth is you really want them to think of you.

3. Friendship is a bridge between you and me.
When you feel lonely cross it, I am waiting for you on the other side.
If you are afraid, just tell me I will cross it for you.

4. Some people are dearer than others.
The reason is not the happiness you feel when you meet them.
It is the emptiness you feel when they are not near you.

5. Every nice friend is a glimpse of GOD.
It is one of life's best blessings.
A priceless gift that can never be bought, sold or forgotten.

6. The greatest gift you can give to someone is your time
because when you give someone your time
you have given them a part of your life that you will never get back.

7. The most painful moment of life comes when
your care for others is taken as a disturbance.

When things go wrong as they should'nt
when life seems difficult to sail in rough weather
when everything seems so bleak and thinner
when you feel you can go no further
think of and keep faith on the one in the altar
who is here to see you through thick and thin.
For he who created the night
ensured sunshine is not far away.

Gratitude is the mother of all virtues

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that
the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.
- John F Kennedy

I would maintain that thanks are

the highest form of thought and
that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
- G K Chesterton

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant,

to enact gratitude is generous and noble,
but to live gratitude is to touch heaven.
- Johannes A Gaertner

Gratitude is our most direct line to God and the angels.

If we take the time,
no matter how crazy and troubled we feel,
we can find something to be thankful for.
The more we seek gratitude, the more reason the angels
will give us for gratitude and joy to exist in our lives.
- Terry Lynn Taylor

Not what we say about our blessings,

but how we use them,
is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
- W T Purkiser

In our daily lives,

we must see that
it is not happiness that makes us grateful,
but the gratefulness that makes us happy.
- Albert Clarke

If you want something you never had,
do something you have never done.

Don't go the way life takes you.
Take the life the way you go ...
And remember you are born to live
and not living because you are born.

However rich in terms of money
a man in this earth happens to be
the oxygen that he needs to breathe
is God's gift to him for free.

Before a dream is realized the soul of the world tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil but so that we can in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we have learnt as we move towards that dream. That is the point at which most people give up.

Language of the desert: People die of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.

From Paul Coelho's 'Alchemist'
