Stop. Breathe.

Just about an hour back, I was looking out my window..at nothing in particular, and I thought to myself "Ok, God. Come on..talk to me."
And I absent-mindedly switched on the radio.
A man crooned 'Love is the secret we've been looking for..'
And I smiled and thought "Thanks..I agree."

God always talks to us, we don't hear him because we choose not to listen.
But every now and then he has a way of getting your attention.

It feel like its been a while since I've fed my soul instead of my brain.

I feel like I'm in love but I dont know who with (or more specifically I KNOW I'm not in love with anyone, there isn't anyone to be in love with, really, but it feels like it). Will I even recognize it when it does eventually come along?
Did that make any sense at all? Do my statements have any logic to them?
If they do, then please explain it to me.

I look out my window at this very moment and everything seems like its been frozen. Frozen in perfection. And yet everything has movement, has fluidity..everything fits.
Everything.
The trees are green and gold. Every leaf is a different colour but all form an incredible whole.
A lone window reflects the sunlight straight at me.
A pair of swallows execute the same acrobatic aerodynamic stunt, with amazingly graceful, natural panache. They make it look as easy as breathing.
The clouds look like wisps of cotton candy.
And my silly dog barks at a shirt flapping in the breeze.

There is equilibrium. And I revel in it, for however short a time it lasts.
There is no dissonance.

See what I mean when I say '..everything fits'?

The world's changing. The change has begun with the likes of us.
Yes you're in love. You're in love with love.
And that's what it takes for life to be beautiful. For this world to be beautiful.
Spread it, it's contagious.
Spread love.
Peace be with you.

MAHI! I feel the same. Really. I too have moments, where i look out of the window and ask God to talk to me, ask him to give me a sign that he's watching over me, and he is! I do get signs everytime. And yeah babe, you are in love. Time will reveal everything. Just enjoy the moment.

PS- I always thought feeling this way, would sound very filmi or very childish. Hence i wouldnt tell anyone about me feeling this way. But i guess there are others who feel this way too.

=)

Very well said.God talks to you in different ways- you just have to look out for the signs.
And yes,I'm sure that's what being in love feels like - "everything just fits."
A weird little coincidence it is,that I felt exactly the same way today.Like someone took a brush and painted a drab,monotonous world with the colours of life.And your blog was a good way to end the day.

I agree Mahi...God constantly communicates with us, in one way or another. But, we seem more attentive when we're lost and need direction... looking for answers about the future, or just plain frustratingly disappointed. The answer I guess is to listen to your heart more often, know what it desires and [try to] keep it happy!=)
Love may come by, tap on ure door, say hello...and you might not even realise it then. It's probably happened already...who knows?!

For some reason, a lot of my friends have been going through really really hard times the last couple of months. And I have asked God for a sign. I have asked him for some mercy.... havent seen it so far :(

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life; That word is love.

Only when we give joyfully, without hesitation or thought of gain, can we truly know what love means

why is so much attributed to god?

Blogger Madame Mahima did the happy dance and finally said..

kj - =)

4wd - welcome..
ok well maybe i shouldve been more specific..that energy thats in all of us, that 'being'..whoevers up there, whoevers coordinating everything, whoevers keeping all those planets in orbit, whoevers behind the machination of our lives...thats who i refer to as god.
not quite the being in the bible, or quran or the gita (or maybe the being in all of them..i dont know) thats who im thanking.
if calling it 'god' makes things a little more simpler then so be it..there are too many things in this world that are perfectly synchronized and there are too many beautiful mistakes, for it to be purely coincidental or purely 'factual'..
thats why i attribute it all to that 'god'
jeez i shouldve just done a post on this. see what you've done!! :P

Don't know what to say..God's beauty is in nature. Wonder if he will shower some benevolence on us too.

And yes, sometimes, I wonder how we hear or see things in answer to questions we never asked.

Blogger AJ did the happy dance and finally said..

I know that moment where everything is at peace, but never really thought it was God talking to me...

I usually try to enjoy & not question anything too much. But it is sorta like God talking, isn't it?

1:42 PM  
Blogger Madame Mahima did the happy dance and finally said..

amit - very true

jups - it most definitely is in nature..and some of the most troubling questions are the ones we usually dont know how to put into words..

aj - i dont know..moments when everything is just perfect..thats when i really take notice of things that would otherwise normally not enter my consciousness. yup..we should sit, enjoy and appreciate'god's little gifts'.. or at least we should remember to do so every now and then =)

Blogger 4WD did the happy dance and finally said..

mahima ~ yeh i have a certain effect on women :P But you know, god never sort of made sense to me. I mean, where'd s/he/it come from? Why can't humans just be content with not knowing how it is that the earth is at the exact right distance from the sun, not a km more or less, to sustain life? If we cant find an explanation, we say, ``god,'' so now its explained, and we're happy :) thanks for the welcome. you have a nice blog.

look at your own question..not a km or more less..don't tell me you haven't wondered about such precision. what are the odds of that happening?

If we cant find an explanation, we say, ``god,'' so now its explained
see 4wd, im not talking about the unexplained/ supernatural, i'm talking about stuff that science HAS already explained..are u just content with logic? haven't u ever wondered (or hoped) that theres more to it than just crunching out the right formula and the right numbers- like how everything just perfectly fits, like pieces in a puzzle? that maybe all this is just a small stepping stone in the grander scheme of things..a plan that we'll probably never know?

dont get me wrong! it's just curiosity on my part =)
thanks! do visit again!

Yes Mahi....I very much see what you mean. I'm beginning to think that loving another person actually distracts you from the real feeling of love. Is that what they call 'maya-jaal'?

couchie and jay -now now..WHO would wanna talk to grumpy boys. smile boys! goooood *spits in hand and neatens couchie and jays hair*

smithy- noo idea what maya jaal is (my hindi is TERRIBLE) but ure definitely onto something there...i reckon when ure in love with someone, you pretty much dont see anything beyond that person..
