Some day

Things will start falling in place.

Some day

There will be happiness all around and no more pain.

Some day

I will have money, success and power.

Some day

Compliments and fame will pour like shower.

Some day...

I was living for that some day.

Till I realized all I have is today.

Life is too short to live for some day!


Is the present life has bestowed.


Is where I live- past and future no more.


Is where my happiness lies in life’s board of chess.


Is my new address, no more fear, no more stress.

Today Is A Gift

      Thank you Dana!

      One of the most important lesson I have learnt from my spiritual master H.H.Ravishankar ji is to live in the present moment. He says,"Be in the present. If you are happy now, the past will not torment you. If you live life now, tomorrow will take care of itself. This is the Art of Living."

      This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read. Why? - because it speaks of wisdom and enlightenment in its highest form. There ware many things we strive for; but if we learn that all we have is today because tomorrow is not promised to us it would solve many of life's problems. Definitely sharing in the hopes that others will see and appreciate. Blessings.
