Knocking On Heaven's Door...

Knock Knock...
Who's there?
A lost girl...
What brings you here?
I'm in search of liberation...
You had so many souls who gave it to you but you left them!
But my heart was bleeding...
But these souls didnt leave you??
I know. I received so many letters from Heaven so Im at your door now...
Come in then and liberate yourself in the love of those who really cared!

HUGGGGGGGGGGZ Guys I'm back! Thanks EVERYONE for all the emails/comments giving me so much strength and love since last Friday. No more tears and no more silly dramas, I promise. Cos I realise that so many people here truly care about me and that's a rare considering the experiences I've had in the past. So I must be thankful for having you all as my friends who brighten up my day in countless ways. I'm sorry I was blind and was lost for a while, but I somehow found my way back to Heaven and that's YOU. I'd like to thank each and everyone for not losing faith in me and for speaking great words of wisdom in their genuine efforts to get me back here and guess what guys, it worked like a charm :) I'm here earlier than I thought I'd be mainly because of
JD, cos he said that he's going to be away in the Middle East soon and that he doesnt want to leave in my absence. So J here I AM!

I would like to share with you a few great quotes from Buddhism that I have been pondering upon over the weekend:

--There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.
--Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else-you are the one getting burned.
--It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
--Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
--Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.

~~Buddha.

And my own revelation from my many experiences:

Relationships are tough, espeically if you are serious about it. If you're not in it for real, it's quite easy, cos it's easier to pretend that everything is sugary and rosy than to really go through it. And if that novelty in a relationship is lost, it's lost for good. It's like how when a drop of ink falls into the milk, the milk is no longer white and pure. Therefore I'm not going to torture myself with the loss of any friends, cos I haven't really lost anything here but my realisation of SELF. We all cry so much because we are so hooked up on SELF, even though we crave for love from one another - cos it's SELF that we really love so we constantly want to pamper it. I realised that I could have a zillion friends but I can never force them to love me and no matter what, I will always end up by myself. When the curtains are drawn, people go home and the lights are switched off, I will be all by myself. It's any man's story. That's what will always be and so I realised that I need to learn to rely on myself.

Have a great day folks and THANKS SO MUCH for always being there for me!

sophie said...

keshi sweets...i m happy tat u r back


I use to have a Comfort Zone
Where I knew I couldn't fail
The same four walls of busy work
Were really more like jail.

I longed so much to do the things
I'd never done before,
But I stayed inside my Comfort Zone
And paced the same old floor

I claimed to be so busy
With the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
Something special of my own.

I couldn't let my life go by,
Just watching others win.
I held my breath and stepped outside
And let the change begin.

I took a step and with new strength
I'd never felt before,
I kissed my Comfort Zone 'goodbye'
And closed and locked the door.

If you are in a Comfort Zone,
Afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were
At one time filled with doubt.

A step or two and words of praise,
Can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile,
Success is there for you!


"Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone." - Robert Allen

i read this somewhere on net....and i thought i will share it with you

hugzzz sweetie

Hi Keshi


yipppieee... u r bck :)


Now you have got so many fans around, how is it possible for you to go like that, none of us would let u go :).

u know, i just loved the quotes of Buddha. I am his fan, same way as I am of Swami Vivekanand.

Really nice to see u, Kesh.

amitsinha said...

hello keshi , I like reading ur blog though due to sudden urgent commitements, have not been able to read this article. neways, I know u r a no-nonsense grl, but sorry, hehe I have tagged u.

Alapana said...

Yes,relationships of all genuine feelings are tough to handle,we use caution,because we care,care for others and are scared that we might hurt the other person whom we care for somuch,that makes it tough yet the challege makes such relationships beautiful,with the sharing of those smiles and tears together it becoems to survive the situations.
Fake relations are easy to handle and easier to discard off,Dont ever worry abt that fakeness in ppl,they wont be able to hide it for long,Keep on living and loving the way you do,Life is what you want it to be:) Glad to see you back,i always come here,read and walk back with a smile,We sure used to come to eachothers blog long back,Just that now i changed my blog from being a famous blogger to a silent blogger with a few close blog friends visiting it:) maybe because i have been through Fakeness here.
takecare and good to see you back.

karmic_jay said...

Welcome back :-)

praveen said...

im happy to see ya again...don't worry abt those who have betrayed ur trust and played games with ur feelings...you have many great frens around who care abt you...they should be ur priority rite...

SaffronSaris said...

Keshi-doll! You're back! I knew you are too strong to be sad.

SCRIBBLEZ TO WAKEUP said...

Hey Lady!! I do sometimes feel tht most love is because we want it, not because we want to give it...I love someone so tht he loves me more than I love him unconditionally....Many will say this is wrong n my hteory is bull and maybe it is! Anyways glad ur back....:)

prithz said...

Hey... so nice to you back and in high spirits... :)

i jus remembered this quote-

"To the world u mite jus one person,
But to one person u mite be the world"

Cheer up keshi girl... Have a wonderful day :)

Hugggzzzzzzzz....

~~Anuj

ur right...deep inside everyone there's a peace...thanks so much Anuj!







~~Sophie

Sophie girl that poem was BRILLIANT! It really really really opened my eyes..thanks so much for sharing it with me. This is why I love the blog world cos so many ppl bring so many new things into my life and make me grow from all their words of wisdom!

Ur spot on...I was in a comfort zone where I gave so much love to these friends....and then I realised that they dun value me the same way..I was just a blogger to them that they could poitn fingers at each time I wrote a post. Otherwise they never even bothered to say HI. But I was in this comfort zone for far too long and then last week was the last straw...I had to get out of this zone cos I was locked in their and crying all the time. So I walked away and I feel so much better now!

Thanks so much for ur words of wisdom Sophie, HUGGGGGGGGGZ!







~~Sunita

thanks Sunita mwahhhhhhh!







~~Jeevan

yeah it's hard...but after a few difficult experiences, it'll all work out...wait n see Jeevan, n good luck!







~~The_Ego_Has_Landed

hey girl WB I missed ya! It's ok..u've been busy, I u'stand. But I really appreciate u coming here every now n then and saying HELLO. That shows u really care abt me...thanks n huggggggggggz girl! Take it easy.







~~Het_Waghela

Gives Het a bone-crushing hug...

:):)

Thanks Het for being there for me...u guys rock! I cant leave such wonderful friends just cos few friends dun want my friendship.


**u know, i just loved the quotes of Buddha. I am his fan, same way as I am of Swami Vivekanand.

oh r u? WOW good to hear that. I have heard abt Swami Viv. but dunno much abt his teachings. U should put some up in ur blog.








~~AmitSinha

hey Amit thanks a lot :) I will check the tag soon....have a good day Amit!







~~Alapana

hey Alapana WC and thanks alot for ur great advice! I really appreciate that. Yes fake relations r much easier to handle and easier to get rid of...spot on!


**i changed my blog from being a famous blogger to a silent blogger with a few close blog friends visiting it:) maybe because i have been through Fakeness here...

so u had a different blog b4? I cant recall this name...was it under a different name? awww...Im glad u came back here. I will check u out soon. tc and have a nice day Alapana!








~~Karmic_Jay

Thanks Jay, twas a very quick return :):)







~~Praveen

hey girl hows u?


**...don't worry abt those who have betrayed ur trust and played games with ur feelings

true...it's so much better to be TRUSTED than to be LOVED, just liek Dawn stated. And I feel these ppl didnt trust my friendship...so not worth crying over something liek that.

I hope ur doing well after all the heartaches u had last few days. Take care of urself and Im here for u always...huggggggggz!








~~SaffronSaris

hey Saffy doll!

hehe yes as much as the weakness that I am, the strength is also me :)

Thanks for having faith in me Saffy, hugggggggggggz!









~~Scribblez_To_Wakeup

hey Scribblez thanks n hugggggggz!


**I love someone so tht he loves me more than I love him unconditionally

ur spot on! that's what it really is! We love ppl cos we want them to love us too...this is the truth. Cos we want ourSELVES to be loved. For those who say it's wrong, ask them if they can love someone who hates them...







~~Prithz

huggggggz Prithz!


**"To the world u mite jus one person,
But to one person u mite be the world"

thats so true...thanks so much for sharing that Prithz!

Welcome back. I've missed you.

sittingnut said...

hey mate!

glad you are back ! :-)

yes in the end we have only ourselves, but only on an abstract level.
most of us do have friends and loved ones who will be there no matter what. and i think you have more than most , rightly so. if some ppl leave you you do not lose. they are the ones who lose.

have a great day!

uttara said...

Hey hey Keshi, good to have you back :D

Ghost Particle said...

hey hey....WB! And great great Buddha's words.

the girl said...

Doubt...so much easier than hope

Anger...always more simple than forgiveness

Self...fixing others is a breeze compared to facing your own problems

Lighted...sometimes we see the shadows cast by the light instead of the purity within the bright beam

Shine...when we shine our hopes and dreams onto others it is magnified within ourselves

heyy Niki thanks n huggggggggz!

White Magpie said...

Anything will cause a problem (including relationships) if you take it seriously. The trick is to be sincere, not serious. Also, to be completely aware of every moment; to experience them as a whole. Yearning and hankering is caused by incomplete experiences.

A person's maturity:- consists in having found again the seriousness one had as a child, at play. In general, maybe free spirits prefer to fly alone.

Digger said...

Sounds like you've come through some great lessons, congratulations and welcome home,

give us a visit

cheesemeister said...

Doubt blows. It has truly held me back in my life. I actually don't enjoy confrontation which makes life rather a dichotomy given that I hold some "controversial" beliefs. I really need to stick to my own advice:
Joke 'em if they can't take a fuck!
Peace.

Keshi said...

~~White_Magpie

hey WB I missed ya!


**The trick is to be sincere, not serious.

so true! Thanks for that. I really like that...I learnt alot in just that one liner.


**A person's maturity:- consists in having found again the seriousness one had as a child, at play.

Love that too wow! Very inspirational and so true.








~~Digger
