Today’s Quote

Sorrow prepares you for joy.
It violently sweeps everything out of your house,

so that new joy can find space to enter.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart,
so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.
It pulls up the rotten roots,
so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,
far better things will take their place.”

Rumi

    • Dearest Ajay: First of all, congratulations to my blogging mentor, without whom I wouldn’t have been able to get past the Liebster Award’s 200 followers criteria! You are a mentor and a light to me on the other side of the world. Whenever you take the time to comment on one of my posts, I am truly inspired to continue to reach out to the world, one reader at a time. I hope to visit Mumbai one day, solely to meet you in person. My gratitude and blessings to you and your loved ones…

      • Oh dear sister you are elder to me and so I feel absolutely honored to do each and everything possible for you dear I respect you very much dear as my elder sister and a sister never ever says thanks to a little brother.

        When I sa your blog and your post in approx March and your posts on your mom and father it bought tears in my eyes and and thought why only a few people visit you blog and felt silly as what people are interested in popular concepts and mediocore futile social concpets of life and do not give importance to the truth you portray about the real essenxe of life, why??, so I decided to reblog your post and wanted more and more people to know about you and you beautifuk beautiful blog.

        So dear my quest for truth forced me to do that because on my blog I earlier tried to put those beautiful quotes and people did not visit me.

        So dear sister it was the urge for truth that enforced me and dear how can a small soul be a mentor to a very great and enlightened soul like yours

        I feel honored to have been able to at least provide a humble light in your great enlightened path

      • I am going to print out your answer and keep it near my computer for when I feel as if I am not making a positive difference in the world. Your words are wings that lift me up and provide much-needed support. If you get a chance sometime in the future, my friend, please take a look at “Wounded Hearts” and “I Wasn’t Enough…”
