When darkness falls

How deliciously sweet life is if we keep ourself shiny and bright

Let the light in and reflect out love

When darkness attempts to enter

Increase the light

Fill yourself to the brim with happy thoughts

No space left for it’s fear and despair

Let it knock

But do not open the door

It is powerless without your permission to enter

Send it on it’s way.

  1. i have seen in my life that people who take the first step in crime are almost always sucked in- this is why i preach it again and again in my stories to never give in to blackmailing or prevent taking the first wrong step.

  2. precisely- no matter what you have done, if someone tries to blackmail you you should better go open yourself and take the consequences with dignity- blackmailing is like giving your soul to devil and expecting it will be alright. its a strict NO NO in my dictionary.

  3. we have been preached so much during my growing age about kidnapping, running away, drugs, blackmailing etc that since my early youth i knew i will never do any thing which will cause my ruin.

    i really feel sad for people who fall in these traps and miserable for those who had to suffer for the mistakes of these people like smita suffered in this story.

  4. I think the fact that I was such a timid child kept me from taking some risks that would have been harmful to me. I stayed away from drinking and drugs and the types of people who did those things to excess. And at age 19 or so I had already commited my life to one of love of God and doing those actions that would draw me closer to Her and my freedom from maya.

    I have been so blessed and protected…

  5. I too was the timid, obedient (upto the limit of idiocy) type girl. :)

    I too have been taught about these vices so strongly that never felt like using them. and yes, i used to avoid bad company like plague. this is why most of the people call me arrogant and snob- because i pick up my circle very carefully. i mingle with very handpicked people. i cant mingle with every tom/dick/harry – i just cant :(

    • I think some people may think I am a snob too but really I am just shy until I can feel safe with someone.

      But there are many people that I can’t warm up to and avoid because their energy is abrasive and uncomfortable to me. :(

      • exactly. and these people think i am a snob who thinks too much about herself. what can i do if vulgar jokes make my blood boil? and i cant smile at a person whose taste makes me sick?

        i cant mask my feelings too much. that is why i hand pick company and let people think whatever they want :) :)

  6. Yes, it’s hard for me to mask my feelings too. I’ve never been good at faking them–thank goodness! What you see is what you get!

    I will not join in with people just for the sake of having someone to hang out with if I don’t care for them. I’d rather be alone. :)

  7. exactly. the same thing with me. i dont need company, so i mix with only those who i can admire. its been a habit from childhood. with age it became more and more concrete.

    i will say hi, hello to every one, chat a little but mingle with only my own type of people.

  8. Sometimes though I have wondered about my lack of cultivation of friends. Am I selfish? Am I too judgmental? Aren’t I supposed to have an open heart toward all? How do I keep an open heart but protect myself from those who don’t have my best interest at heart?

    Sometimes I wonder…

  9. dearest gayle,
    I have been reading a lot about this “specific” nature of mine, and have seen that every religious text and wise man supports our stand of mixing with only our own class of people. actually they encourage it. :)

    they say its better to be alone than be surrounded by a crowd of people whose company you will regret later.
    :)

    • You are right, I have read the same thing–if you can’t find someone worthy to walk your path with you, then walk alone. This I read in The Dhammapada. A book full of wisdom.

      Love you…

  10. dearest gayle,
    yes, and thats another leonine tendency :) they are very choosy in case of relationships, they look for the very best because they give their best. and stay alone without remorse if they dont find that person who wants to vibe with him/her.
    lots of love.

  11. Dearest Trisha,

    Well that is my sister’s (Leo) trait. She has been divorced for many years and has dated scads of men, some who have wished to marry her. But she will not compromise herself to just marry anyone. She has very high standards for a mate. So she would rather be alone than settle for someone less.

    My youngest daughter is the same way but she is a Capricorn. She has had many men love her and want to marry her but she always senses that it wouldn’t work out. She is a most independent young woman and really dedicated to her spiritual life and I’m sure doesn’t see the point in having a man in her life if he can’t really support her 100% in how she wants to live. Yay for her!

    Yay for you!

    With love,
    Gayle
