— bulandini's stories

And then I heard you
You made me long for
To be a part of
Something that I can’t see
A life that is beyond
Something that I can’t fear
To be a part of
The story – it belongs to you

“People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles.
Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”
― Neil Gaiman

No one’s fated or doomed to love anyone
the accidents happen, we’re not heroines
they happen in our lives like car crashes
books that change us, neighborhoods
we move into and come to love.

(from Twenty-One Love Poems by Adrienne Rich)

A moth dances with fire and light
Then it is in there… and still.
We dance with fire but never step in.

A moth is chasing its destiny
As we are running from ours
Into the same circles as ever.

Come to the light, to the fire
Let it burn you to a cinder
Taking your karmic body

A guru is like the fire
Transforming you to light,
What’s left is charred ashes

Perhaps the moth knows
The fire it seeks is enlightenment
All else is illusion

We seek our gurus in Temples
In Churches, Mosques and Holy Places
The moth ENTERS its heart

There is Fire where we fear
And Light where we know
The Fire is our Light.

The truth is always in love
Find it where you can
Then let it burn you.

The pathway to yourself
Is through your resistances
Through your hopes and dreams

Once burnt like a moth
What is there to fear?
Only the looking down

On the ashes you have left
Behind you as guides
To those who seek the Light

It is through Fire
The moth knows
Like a moth to a flame I go.

(Puja on the Ganges in Varanasi)

How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d;

(Poem, Eloisa to Abelard by Alexander Pope)

Go sing, too loud
Make your voice break- Sing it out
Go scream, do shout
Make an earthquake…

You wish fire would die and turn colder
You wish your love could see you grow older
We should always know that we can do anything

Go drum, do proud
Make your hands ache – Play it out
Go march through crowd
Make your day break…

You wish silence released massive tremors
You wish, I know it, surrender to summers
We should always know that we can do everything

Go do, you’ll learn to
Just let yourself, fall into landslide

Go do, you’ll learn to
Just let yourself, give into low tide

Go do!

Tie strings to clouds
Make your own lake – Let it flow
Throw seeds to sprout
Make your own break – Let them grow

Let them grow (Endless summers)
Let them grow (Endless summers)

(Go do endless summers)

You wish surprise, will never stop wonders
You wish sunrise, will never fall under

You wish surprise, will never stop wonders
You wish sunrise, will never fall under
We should always know that we can do everything

(I haven’t blogged anything since late 2011, and now in the middle of 2013, I feel joy bubbly up inside me, for what Life has given me so far. This song is always invigorating, as if sunshine feels my Heart. I hope it would give you the same feeling too.)
