तू खुद की खोज में निकल

तू खुद की खोज में निकल तू किस लिए हताश है, तू चल तेरे वजूद की समय को भी तलाश है समय को भी तलाश है जो तुझ से लिपटी बेड़ियाँ समझ न इन को वस्त्र तू जो तुझ से लिपटी बेड़ियाँ समझ न इन को वस्त्र तू ये बेड़ियां पिघाल के बना ले इनको शस्त्र तू बना ले इनको शस्त्र तू तू खुद की खोज में निकल तू किस लिए हताश है, तू चल तेरे वजूद की समय को भी तलाश है समय को भी तलाश है
चरित्र जब पवित्र है तोह क्यों है ये दशा तेरी चरित्र जब पवित्र है तोह क्यों है ये दशा तेरी ये पापियों को हक़ नहीं की ले परीक्षा तेरी की ले परीक्षा तेरी तू खुद की खोज में निकल तू किस लिए हताश है तू चल, तेरे वजूद की समय को भी तलाश है

तुम मुझको कब तक रोकोगे…

मुठ्ठी में कुछ सपने लेकर, भरकर जेबों में आशाएं दिल में है अरमान यही, कुछ कर जाएं… कुछ कर जाएं… सूरज-सा तेज़ नहीं मुझमें, दीपक-सा जलता देखोगे अपनी हद रौशन करने से, तुम मुझको कब तक रोकोगे…
मैं उस माटी का वृक्ष नहीं जिसको नदियों ने सींचा है… बंजर माटी में पलकर मैंने, मृत्यु से जीवन खींचा है… मैं पत्थर पर लिखी इबारत हूँ, शीशे से कब तक तोड़ोगे.. मिटने वाला मैं नाम नहीं, तुम मुझको कब तक रोकोगे…
इस जग में जितने ज़ुल्म नहीं, उतने सहने की ताकत है… तानों के भी शोर में रहकर सच कहने की आदत है मैं सागर से भी गहरा हूँ, तुम कितने कंकड़ फेंकोगे चुन-चुन कर आगे बढूँगा मैं, तुम मुझको कब तक रोकोगे…
झुक-झुककर सीधा खड़ा हुआ, अब फिर झुकने का शौक नहीं.. अपने ही हाथों रचा स्वयं, तुमसे मिटने का खौफ़ नहीं… तुम हालातों की भट्टी में,  जब-जब भी मुझको झोंकोगे… तब तपकर सोना बनूंगा मैं, तुम मुझको कब तक रोक़ोगे…

नर हो, न निराश करो मन को

नर हो, न निराश करो मन को
कुछ काम करो, कुछ काम करो जग में रह कर कुछ नाम करो यह जन्म हुआ किस अर्थ अहो समझो जिसमें यह व्यर्थ न हो कुछ तो उपयुक्त करो तन को नर हो, न निराश करो मन को।
संभलो कि सुयोग न जाय चला कब व्यर्थ हुआ सदुपाय भला समझो जग को न निरा सपना पथ आप प्रशस्त करो अपना अखिलेश्वर है अवलंबन को नर हो, न निराश करो मन को।
जब प्राप्त तुम्हें सब तत्त्व यहाँ फिर जा सकता वह सत्त्व कहाँ तुम स्वत्त्व सुधा रस पान करो उठके अमरत्व विधान करो दवरूप रहो भव कानन को नर हो न निराश करो मन को।
निज गौरव का नित ज्ञान रहे हम भी कुछ हैं यह ध्यान रहे मरणोंत्‍तर गुंजित गान रहे सब जाय अभी पर मान रहे कुछ हो न तज़ो निज साधन को

Savor of content

Content. The sweet honey. According to me, the purpose of life should be happiness, peace, and content. But in today’s age, it’s being very difficult to be peaceful and contented.
At each and every step, we are getting disturbed. We always feel a lack of life. We never feel fulfilled. Everything hammers us for what we don’t have. So content seems to be an illusion in this modern mobile age.
In such dreariness, we can feel content, we can feel fulfilled. It’s certainly possible. When we look within, when we sublime within, it becomes reality. We just have to alter our thoughts and emotions to make it work. Think positive and feel positive, finally that leads us to act positively.
The positive attitude is the only way to feel content. When we list out what we have in life, we feel grateful. We feel fulfilled and contented for the blessings of God.
God has gifted me a beautiful life. He has created this wonderful world. He has not thrown me here. But he has brought me here. He has come wi…

God, make me brave for life

“Brave” thy name is faithful. Fearlessness is a core quality for development. One who is fearful hinders growth. At each and every step he feels stuck. He lists out only threats of the situation. And by counting negatives, he gets outclassed. So being valiant on the life-front is essential for progress.
The unique way to be valorous is to be faithful. Unfaltering source of faith is the concept of Indwelling God in Indian Vedic Culture. Fallacious and blind beliefs are always misleading. Deceptive understanding makes us baseless. Truthful understanding makes us aware.  
God is with me, within me. He is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. He is just and righteous. He is loving and takes care of me. Joy and woe whatever he gifts with is a divine love letter. Joy is to energize and woe is to strengthen.
No doubt in this understanding cultivates faith. And as a result, I become gallant. So it’s in my hand to be heroic. Being lionhearted is a result of faith in self and faith in God. In …

The glow-worm

While it may seem small, the ripple effects of small things are extraordinary. ~ Matt Bavin
None is small or none is big, it's a matter of attitude only. Which seems small, it may be big. And which seems big, it may be small. According to me, strength may vary, but the purpose for which it is used makes all difference.
People perform big actions. It seems so gigantic. It may be in the welfare of all. But God always checks the purpose of it. For what purpose it has been done, that matters most.
Good actions done with bad motives are bad. Bad actions done with good motives are good. ~ Bhagavad Gita
Here is a little poem about Firefly. Tagoreji has poetically woven the act of him in words. Firefly is a small creature but act he does is not at all small. He enlightens the world. He borrows from none. In service to others, he uses his own power.
In essence, it’s an elegant, noble and selfless act done out of love and kindness. So it seems small but it’s really not. It’s a great act of …

I am a ray of sun

I am a ray of sun; Illuminating in the dark inside.
I am a splash of colors; Painting on the canvas blank;
I am a smir of rain; Satisfying the thirst of my soul.
I am a spring of nature; Blossom in the autumn inner.
I am a drop of water; Playing in the ocean of infinity;
Being an instrument divine; Is a noble, ever renewing, blessing.
~ Siddharth Mistry


Life is a game, play it. Life is a puzzle, solve it. Life is a mystery, unfold it. How wise words these are! All the days are not the same. They vary. Up and down, to and fro are but natural. It’s like a roller coaster ride. It threatens sometimes. We may lose head and heart due to the variance.  
In such an imbalance, how do we balance is the major point. In the midst of the conflict, in the midst of hardship, in the midst of the storm, how do we think and live, that carries the major attention.
In the struggle, we may get disturbed. Negativity and distortion may drag us down. But the truth is: it’s a process, the process of development. No struggle can bring us down, but our own mind can. So it’s an opportunity to build a positive mind.
So in the scuffle, instead of getting down, awake and arise. Build the mind with positive thoughts and emotions. Draw a meaning in difficult times and surely it will bring us up.
Here is a heartening divine poem by Shri Aurobindo. It touched my heart d…
