" Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For Love is sufficient unto Love..."

Thoughts from my Spiritual Diary-2
Over the years, as every sunrise brightened my day for a new beginning and as every sunset gave me a chance to bury my hurts, I have seen myself grow in soul and spirit. Every offering of life, whether pleasant or unpleasant came with innumerable lessons only to enrich my being. Only now I realize that they were an essential pre-destined series of events which had to be unfolded for me so perfectly. Only now I know that they happened to make me who I am today. These eyes remained the same, only new perceptions were born. People and loved ones retained their importance, only the love and understanding grew mature and deepened my sense of attachment with them. Circumstances are still the same but my Love for Spirituality has grown stronger. Problems and sorrows might never leave my side but I now have a stronger pact with God to help me deal with it. I refuse to resist everything that doesn’t fit my will and I nowchoose to surrender myself to Hiswill. It has taken me years to come to terms with this but I guess He has a time for everything. All lessons will be taught. His clock is never late; it always strikes on the right time. If I have one thing which I take complete pride in, which I truly call my own achievement, which happens to be my trophy from God over these wonderful years, it would be FAITH-All-pervading, stubborn and unending.
" O my Lord, if I worship Thee from fear of hell, burn me in hell and if I worship Thee in hope of paradise, exclude me thence, But I worship Thee for Thine own sake, Then withhold not from me Thine eternal beauty! ” The Greatest Sufi Woman Saint - Rabia-al-Adawiyah
I am a doting daughter, a protective sister, a loyal friend, a sensitive, loving soul with an insatiable passion and zest for Life- The Divine’s Greatest Gift to me.
I am on my way faltering and stumbling to reach towards My Beloved and discover His Love and Glory every single moment of this blessed living.
I believe there are innumerable Ways which lead to Him, and I bow my head in Love and Respect for each of them for I seek the Essence and not its Form.
I desire to grow abundantly in soul and spirit, yearn to be a good human being and spread Love on my Path to all those I meet.
This blog is my humble attempt to decipher The Celestial Being and feel His Love and Presence in all His astounding Creations.
