A Mystical Poet(Part 4)

Hi friends, I hope you are all doing well. We all go through some tough periods in life, like losing a loved one, being betrayed, or failing at something. Somehow, you bounce back. If you are still in such a tough situation, let me tell you something “It Will Pass” and you will become stronger than before. Because, I have been there too, my friend. This poem by Khalil Gibran gave me clarity at such times.

A Mystical Poet(Part 2)

I was confused till my teenage years as to why there were so many religions and gods. And why we were fighting and killing each other in the name of religion despite all religions preaching compassion and tolerance? What if religion makes you fear god than love god? Is religion even necessary to live a deeper life? If you were confused or still confused, this eye-opening piece by Gibran answers all these questions gracefully.

A Mystical Poet

If the world’s wisdom were to transform into a song, Then Kahlil Gibran would be the composer. A close friend of mine recommended his book ‘The Prophet’ to me, then I rushed to the college library to borrow the book. I went to a scenic silent place, sat down, and started reading. When I was doing that, Time came to a standstill. Even the trees and birds seemed to be reading along with me. I became one with the melody of the book and was filled with unparalleled joy. I wanted you to experience the same. Therefore, I have decided to share one piece a day from his book. Hope you will love it too!

How I Taught My Grandma To Use YouTube!

A year and a half back, we switched to android tv. My grandma was out of her wits on how to operate this new device in the home. I decided to teach her to use the new tv. Gradually, each day, I taught her how the tv worked. What the buttons in the remote meant, how to navigate between apps but still, it didn’t help her.

Ode: Intimations of Immortality

There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem

Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;—
Turn wheresoe’er I may,
By night or day.

The things which I have seen I now can see no more.

William Wordsworth

The World Is Too Much With Us

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;—
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.
