Back to Blogging

It's been quite a while since I posted anything here on this blog. That's simply because blogging was completely off my interest radar over the last couple of months. Basically, I wanted to spend some time introspecting before expressing anything new on my blog. I don't want to give the impression that I had gone into some kind of cocoon. Far from it! In fact, I have been very active, energetic, and also, more disciplined in my life than I have ever been. Life has really been extraordinarily beautiful over the last several months. I believe this could happen because of living closer to the heart. I know I still have a lot of room for improvement. In fact, sometimes it seems like I have mansion's worth of space for improvement. I feel this way especially when I fall into my old habitual patterns of living. The good news is that these days when I slide into inertia, I notice this happening much more quickly than I did before. So, coming out of the clutches of negative inertia doesn't require as much effort as it used to. Finally it feels like I have got back into the flow of life. Sure, the flow sometimes passes through treacherous falls and gorges, but it seems like there is some invisible force that keeps me buoyant and prevents me from hitting the deadly rocks on the path. I have come to realize that this invisible force was always there for me, but I struggled so much before that I ended up hurting myself more. It is difficult not be scared when the forces of life sweep you away, but thankfully, I am learning to trust in the power and wisdom of the Divine. This trust is really making a huge difference to my physical, mental, and emotional well-being. I am grateful to all the forces in life that helped me regain that trust in love. I feel grateful for all the love that I see in and around me. And I am deeply grateful to Maa Shakti for letting me experience Her energetic presence in my life.

P.S.: It feels really good to be blogging again. Thank you my dear friends for urging me to do so.


  1. Good to see you back to life, energy and enthusiasm towards life. This new learning is like a life saving substance for you.Wish you all the best for happy & successful life.

  2. Last evening I was reading a Travel Guide on the sacred city of Benaras and flipped over to the page to check out the various names of Shiva and was suprised to find Paresh and that got me thinking that our names and lives are no accident but a beautiful divine plan,The more we become sensitive the more we can feel the divine presence and its beautiful protection that you are never left alone.
    Good to find you blogging again :-)

  3. Thanks Prachi!
    Aparna, I agree with you about there being no accidents in life. A few years ago, I would have scoffed at the idea of life's happenings being some kind of divine plan, but now I do see wisdom in that thinking. Thank you also for sharing the information about my name being one of the numerous names of Lord Shiva. I knew the literal Sanskrit meaning of my name, but didn't know that it was one of Shiva's names.
