About Mirror of My Self

Self is God. Self is Guru. Self is Everything.

This blessed mirror reflects nothing but the Self of my Beloved Brother, my Highest Gurudeva and my Spiritual Father. Whatever you see, read and experience in this blog are only from Him, through me, for you, my dear visitor.

This slave is taking immense pleasure in welcoming you to experience my Self in all its glories!

Caught in traffic

Empty Bus
Window Seat
Cool Breeze
Waning Moon

For the first time,
Traffic Jam
Gladdens my heart!

You know Mani, people write long verses and please one and all, you write a few worlds and please one and all. I am yet to learn this art
:) Terrific as always!

This is called the art of finding something positive even in a negative experience.

I am happy for you, Mani :)

Wow thats quite a different perspective in relation to traffic jams. What I usually hear are complaints to get to their destinations fast,esp in a city like Mumbai. Nice to enjoy the benefits of a traffic jam and notice the smallest things around us which give immense joy. Nice post!!

Mustaf said...

Yes, this is very true. I am from Kolkata and we have trum there which go very slowly on the normal bus route and I love that journey in the evening or after evening, except I am not in a hurry :)
