Grace Of Unity

I was thinking what kind of place made me feel the most peaceful...a place that brought me inner peace. Just by being alone with that place. Apart from places like the beach, forest, lakes and mountains, I like this one place very much...and that's the church. Churches always made me relax, feel peaceful and in one with my spirit. It's so beautiful a feeling to sit inside a church and realise how thoughts just flow into your head without you thinking them. Have you noticed that? How tranquil, effortless, wonderful and loving thoughts come into your head when you sit at a place like that. How you feel that the whole world is such a beautiful place and that we can live as one if we really didn't think only about ourselves. How you feel that there's nothing that you can't conquer in this world if there's love in your heart. How the statues, tinted windows and the big walls speak to you in many intriguing ways. How the voices in your head tell you that you are only a small being of this very big world but that you have a huge part to play. You don't really need to be in a specific place to feel that way but some places strengthen that feeling. And a church is that place for me.

I went to a Methodist school and even though I'm a Buddhist/Hindu by birth I always went for morning prayers in the school chapel (after general assembly). Sometimes when I had to do Prefect duties I had to go to the church by myself when no one else was there. I always enjoyed going up this enchanting spiral staircase of that chapel which had glass walls on both sides with Christian art on them. It's such a special place that made me feel like I was walking up to God's living room for tea, and that the angels were chatting and having fun up there already. Words wont do justice to the emotions and the amazing grace I felt there while looking at Mother Mary holding baby Jesus with a face that portrayed endless and unconditional love. I felt one with God. And I'm not even a Christian by birth. Maybe because I'm a child of that one God which most people try to divide. I can never see Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, Jesus or any other divinity separately. To me they are all one - just many manifetsations of one. Just like how this world is full of people but we all have the same body, soul, needs and feelings...we all wanna be heard...we are all born and we all die...we are all children of this Earth. We are many but we are one. God bless this world!

What kind of place(s) make you feel the oneness of the world?

~~Hey you, you're a child in my head
You haven't walked yet
Your first words have yet to be said
But I swear you'll be blessed...~~

Religious places always make us peaceful, not sure why. But I always like less-crowded temples (like in villages or hilltops). There is a temple near my house on a hill, the backside of which is the best place just to sit and relax...

Kumar Chetan said...

Any place where am with my dear ones

//I can never see Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, Jesus or any other divinity separately. To me they are all one - just many manifetsations of one.

Great Words and so true! And its all in the eyes of people who see this! After all its the belief that you cling on to that makes your life more lovelier and enlightening! Belief is the apt 6 letter word that makes sixth sense humans rejoice their life!

Parag said...

Religious places are always peaceful because of the architecture.. High ceilings .. open spaces.. the quite atmosphere..
There is a certain "energy" level in these places and we get more "body speace"
Let me explain body space..
Have you ever wondered why we do not talk much to each other while in a crowded elevator..
We all need some space around our bodies to make us comforatble.. When we havethis space.. we can speak and think openly..

Even in a temple/church/ mosque.. if there is too much of a crowd.. or noise.. you would not feel peaceful..

I also feel peaceful in my bedroom.. I have designed it in a way (especially the colours) to provide serenity..

Best way to relax.. is sit in an upright pose with crossed legs and breathe slowly.. Concentrate on the breat.. feel the cold air going in and the warm air coming out.. after sometime.. you forget everything else.. That's the first lesson in meditation using yoga.. try this every morning and see the energy around you !!

ektaran said...

Speaking of Places of Worship...I find all of them Peaceful IF the place is less noisy..usually they put some Bhajans and all & loudspeakers ...which takes away the serenity of the place...

ohh Keshi I just love visiting Churches...esp the old gothic ones...love the architecture...ur post reminds me of my school Church in Mumbai..Mount Mary Church....

I have this fantasy to get married again *to the same person ofcourse :P * in some beautiful Church in Greece.....:-)

"Maybe because I'm a child of that one God which most people try to divide." excellent line Keshi

southpaw said...

Kavita's gym, its an unisex gym and a perfect place to unwind...:) Though i dont work out there these days but still go there every evening and spend sometime with wife and my old gym mates.

Jewel Rays said...

Things could feel so down. My mind may run while. but when i go to church and dwell in the house of God its the most peaceful place i found. that would be my most peaceful place. :) Always unfailing. These thoughts crossed my mind not too long ago.

La vida Loca said...

if only everybody thoght like you....then this world could actually be a better place!Have you noticed that religion has caused more wars than anything else

Sush said...

any place where there is peace and quiet and a lot of greenery and an innocent child's smile.

Mr. J said...

A hair dressing saloon. Men and women alike.. You feel nice there ;)

uttara said...

i love sitting next to the sea shore for hrssssss, else even the mountains, hills... n then wud be temple n church wer there's no crowd...

these r the best places to unwind oneself...

Ghost Particle said...

I would say when I sleep or when it rain, but not places, not yet coz maybe I havent found one. oh...maybe the library...

So true when you say, we are many but we are one.

SamY said...

** I felt one with God.

WOW ... now should I start preaching Keshi Keshi ;)) he he!!!

fortunately or unfortunately no religious place gives me that feel ... all but one where I'd been going since childhood ... it not coz of the god there ... but coz a major part of my lifetime I spent around there ... my mum used to take me there regularly, ironically am more regular now ... now that hanuman idol is the only one I see with aww ... even tho just a stone ... n I *never* see another idol or god the way I see him

our appartment terrace (previous house) is the place where I had such a feel (unless its tranquil n humid) ... the water tank was the highest in our locality, just short of the ashok pillar

the place leaves me in absolute bliss ... the strong evening sea breeze ... pressing against me n fluttering my loose clothing ... standing there overlooking the entire area and beyond ... watching the sunset and the city sink into darkness ... its an amazing feeling ... its when the more rational thoughts pour in @ the peak of my composure ;)

AnonymousBlogger said...

You know what? I don't think I have a place like that. I have never found a place I can go and completely relax and forget about life.

I have never been religious, so the church has never done it for me. To me, they are just buildings - like schools, malls, or houses.

Are you lucky that you have places like that, or am I unlucky that I don't?

Aditi said...

There are some temples where I feel that but mostly by the ocean..

Kautilya said...

feelin one with the universe is a wonderful experience...

A trek to a beautiful mountain, notin else visible but for clouds.. when u gaze down...

reach to the top most spot and sit and relax in Padmasana... makes me feel one with the universe...

On an average.. I fell one with the universe atleast half a dozen times in a day... for various differnt reasons...

Just enjoy the moment...

The Light-House. said...

Yes it is always good to go to a place which offers peace and we can get some doubts and things out of our mind and try to work out things which really do matter.
I believe most religious things offer that peace.

KK said...

The kinda places that makes me feel the oneness of the world are
1. Beach (facing the waves) - I have experienced it so many times, whenever I feel troubled or sad or happy I love watching the waves hitting the shore...when I keep watching, lots of things go in my mind and finally when I go back from there I feel very light.
2. Alone in a balcony in a high raised building watching traffic - this too make me feel similar to the experience that I get in the beach.

Madhu said...

very true keshi. i feel the same abt old churches with those colorful float glass windows and lovely old world charm - i feel a strange kind of peace there. like u am a born hindu but i prefer to look at one god above all.

i definitely dont like to go a crowded places except if its for shopping :). I really feel my best when am in a quiet spot all by myself be it a beach side, a green lush hill, a river side or in the open under the night sky.

samuru999 said...

Hi keshi,
I feel the most at peace and a oneness with the world when I am walking very early in the morning, when it is still dark and I am completely alone with my
thoughts.I feel the peace of the awakening day which I am so grateful to be a part of.

The peace of the early dawm might
cause my soul to shiver when I see all the beauty of nature and life
around me.

I do not often feel this type of peace in a building even though there might be a feeling of peace there also.
I have to be a part of nature to feel this oneness with the world and myself.

This is a wonderful post!
Take care Keshi!
Have a great weekend!
Going dancing again???

Eclipsed Thoughts said...

Well, i think few places do make you feel tranquil and at peace. I too studied in a methodist school, but we didnot have a church inside school premises, we used to walk down the lane and then go to the church every sunday.

I have always enjoyed hiking, so anytime when i have to climb a hill or any place, just sitting on the top, feeling the hard wind on your face and looking at the world, realizing how you exist in there and how much you belong there... at those times, i cant think of myself, i dont really know what i think of, whatever it is, it makes me happy and at peace!

christabelle said...

yes oo! I feel such a gr8 peace within when I'm in the presence of God especially in church, my troubles varnish, my broken heart is mended, only when I'm in his presence.

Keshi, gr8 post.

jac said...

For me, it is an orphanage I visit on many of my vacations.
There, you see children who don’t know who they are but united as one.
Just sitting there and looking at those tiny tots, I feel the oneness.

I feel one among them.

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

i find peace at the temple near my house , and in my bedroom

a long walk to the temple provides the necessary calming effect.

As does a good walk in a garden near my house .. garden is the wrong word .. it is just an open space with cultivated trees

Yashita said...

lol...see this is wat I say freaks me out! this smililarityb is just too much!!!:)

know wat? tho I am a Hindu by birth I studied in a convent school...we had this lovely chapel in our school...it had a huge wooden cross with jesus against a beautiful stone wall for background...the chapel was always decorated with flowers and incense sticks and candles...it was just perfect!!! there was the flowere garden behind the chapel and one cold hear the birds chirpin, tho muted...it was just the kind of beautiful melody u know:) and the stained huge windows, the sun streakin thru them...the quiet, the peace it was all just the perfect place for me...I loved it with all my heart...I used to go to the chapel everyday till my 8th grade wen i changed schools...I rally missed it...recently I went bcak to my old school just to feel that kind of peace there...but they had changed the whole chapel:(...I did feel good..but it was like my favourite place was no more:(...

right now...I really don't have a place as such where I feel peace, except for the place next to my window maybe:)

and this is the weird thing, at one point of time I used to go in the loo to think...it used to really cool and quiet there:)hehee...I know wat a place!

The Doctor said...

When I was young and travelled alot, I sought out the beaches. They made me fell peaceful yet alive. I have found the same feeling holding my children as they sleep. So it is as Kumar says, anywhere with my children

Autumn Storm said...

'we all have the same body, soul, needs and feelings...we all wanna be heard...we are all born and we all die...' To realize our similarities and to appreciate our differences, the world would be open and wouldn't that be wonderful!

Happy Weekend, Kesh, x

karmic_jay said...

I am at peace when I sleep. But then my dreams and nightmares.. lets not go there.. ;)
But glad you can find a place like that.

Pri said...

mmm well i would say the place im most at ease is my room :)(alone)
thts whr most of my best conversations wth "god" happen ...

Harry said...

Life is fraught with experiences;we are, each of us, held in the solitude of an autonomous body, time passes, and what has been will never be again...
dear,I have been trying to find why I find such religious places so peaceful..I get the extreme of satisfaction after being there...I m a surd guy...I have been to temple,mosque,Gurdwara and also to Church, but the effect is same...I find myself secluded from the rest of the world..

Steph said...

Anywhere near water does that for me. Be that ocean, river, waterfall, whatever. It calms me.

Mr. Maverick said...

What kind of place(s) make you feel the oneness of the world?

You will actually be surprised with my answer.

For me, the oneness of the world is felt on soccer stadiums in London. Do you know that virtually people from every country play in the English Premier League. And when they score a goal, they all go hug each other and celebrate without worrying about their race, creed, citizenship or color!! That’s what I like about English soccer!

And that to me symbolizes oneness of the world!

Sorry if this sounds a bit childish, I am a kid at heart!

i not a regular go temple guy...but whenever i went to the temple r church i have wat u described in this tranquil post [:)]

Nelly said...

A simple walk at nighttime latley has made m feel this way. It has been both relaxing and a time when my thoughts seem to just wonder at an uncontrolable speed. Walking, running or biking alone at night time as given me my personal peace as of late.....good topic.

Sudeep said...

i had been to a church once in Pondicherry n was awed by the serene atmosphere .. it was a very nice feeling

a huge grnd with a few trees lined by n me sitting under the shadows n watching the world go by.. this might relax me
or my fav passtime.. lying on the terrace n watching eagles soar high up in the air

Jeevan said...

For me the house of my tuition teacher, (in school day) is the silent place for me. She was a christen, who loves Jesus, and got wonderful photo’s of Jesus and nature. I never think of putting sound there, that silent make my learning easy. My another place I feel very peace and its spiritual mind make me to love that place, its Sai BABA temple, the place where beautiful flowers and garden and the sound of birds made that place very silent. Just thinking about the God, and beauty of that place.

We all are one for God, god creates us to live peacefully and enjoy its creatures. The song was very soothing :)

s0ulasylum said...

well i feel a oneness with my spirit when im in deep sleep.. im sleep deprived and unhappy about it! :( but the weekends here so yeyyyyy!!! time to get my party shoes out..
but i think these days whn im sitting by the beach thts close to where i live i feel a strange sense of peace.. its probably all in my head but its magical! :)
take care babes!! have a rocking weekend..

Neers said...

i know exactly, what you say.... same here...went to a french convent and chapels always used to be my place of solace...!

well put...! :)

starry nights said...

Keshi you are so right because in my eyes I dont see different religions also. I think we have different manifestations on the one god and we just take different paths getting there. Made me feel tranquil just reading it.

Astral said...

Hi Keshi, beautiful post and I can relate to it so much. Even though I am a born Hindu but I believe in the RC church and used to be very regular on sundays and wednesday novenas while I was in Mumbai but then life takes diff turn and smthg or the other comes up.....but I still say the prayers besides our Hindu mantras....

~*~Words wont do justice to the emotions and the amazing grace I felt there while looking at Mother Mary holding baby Jesus with a face that portrayed endless and unconditional love.~*~

Well said, as though you stole the words from my mind....we have lot in common girl!

Take care and GOD bless.

The Phoenix said...

Churches feel that way because it's a place of meditation, and the energy is soothing.

Trée said...

Bookstores! I love bookstores. I call them my chapels and there are several in every town I visit. :-)

shpprgrl said...

What an awesome post! You made an interesting statement. There are many that should think the same way.

Seema said...

Keshi..really hopeful to c tis world with many if not all of them thinkin like tis!!united in one God!
There's a
Church in Mumbai at Bandra-MOunt Mary's church..that place gives amazin peace..all u hv to do is go while its just not crowded..all places of worship give that tranqulity to our soul n mind!
Besides tis its nature..the quiet sea shore, mountains n solitude in nature that gives peace to the mind!

Nikita said...

Keshi,

I love going to church too!

mathew said...

I like goin to church but somehow dont feel goin as a congregation..It feels better to have a one to one conversation with god.!!

Its the silence that makes it peaceful and serene..

desperado said...

well church has d same effect on me...i guess its because of the silence there
2 places where i felt peaceful n relaxed
one is d Lotus temple at New Delhi...beautiful piece of art n so calm n serene..lovely
and another is the Fatehpur Sikri Dargah near Agra....one a hill top sort of thing ...sit back n listen to the sufi qawallis tehy sing....i bet anyone with a peaceful mind would go in trance....i just was there for 5 mins...but i hope i'll go there again...n sit for gud 2-3 hrs there..one desire tht i have..hope to fulfill it soon

KL said...

Hey Keshi, you are stealing my words, thoughts and ideas :D:D.

I have the same feelings/experiences like you - besides natural places, any quite spiritual places.

In Australia also, they have prefect duties in schools :D? In India also, they have.

the_new_cloud said...

Yup...
A temple or a church is se peaceful..
Ever closed your eyes and sat in a room with no one around with open arms thinking about nothing??

It gives the same feeling..
:-)

Nice Post..

Homo Escapeons said...

I can't stand churches. Hell for me would be an eternity sitting on a hard wooden pew listening to some weiner drone on and on and on and on about what he thinks about the price of tea in china.
Ghastly!
From the first second that I can remember setting foot into the place where they tell you how horrible you are and how grateful you should be for even being invited in the first place I hated it.
ugggh! Don't get me started....

niki yokota said...

thanks keshi-chan for that lovely pic of mary and church!!
im scared of religious places.
cant relax like u. *sob sob*
coz God might punish me for doing some bad things.
maybe my room is the best place..lol

Within Without said...

Hi Kesh...

While I no longer go to church, there is something very special about it, I admit.

I was brought up Roman Catholic and was an altar boy and the whole shebang. When I became an adult, it became less of a force in my life.

Now I look at the church as a man-made institution and that as such, it contains many things I loathe: politics, a we're right you're wrong mentality, a whole bunch of other purely judgmental things.

But that doesn't take away entirely from the feeling I had being there, while I was there.

I just choose to have those feelings outside of that institution.

And I fully respect your right and anyone else's to have those feelings in that place.

Personally, I tend to have those feelings when I'm alone and outside in the trees and away from everything else and just by myself, where I can think and look around and see the beauty surrounding me.

I hope you hold on to the ability to have the feelings you describe. When people lose that, they might as well have lost everything.

Jo said...

Oh such a great song from Elton John.

And about the place, I prefer a misty hillstation, or a lake shore. :-)

priya said...

I like to be close to ocean and forest with natural surroundings. It brings me a gr8 relief.

I can also relax myself in my favorite place aroung my home listening to music just being me.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Great to have faith – it can get you through the tough times. I tend to believe in myself and those around me rather than some supernatural being. You have to go with whatever works best for you.

being alone in temple is what i like the most, may be only next to being alone in beach :)

amitsinha said...

Hey, I remember that I used to be a very naughty boy in my school and my teachers who were nuns took me to chappel and make me meditate.
I never took that seriously, but I feel its a great place to have an introspection about urself and try to realize the sins u have made in life . Somehow, my trust in Almighty has always controlled me in doing sins, though small mischieves are something I cant control. may god bless all of us.

musings (m000nie) said...

long back i had written such a post... 'the urge'... about some place i love... where i forget the world.. its a place i feel one with..

on the way to matheran which is a lovely hill station near mumbai theres a place.. i dont even know what its called.. but whenever i got there i feel so nice... i havent been there since years now.. oh how i miss that place... hope to go there someday...

i remember when i was in school... we had this morning mass everyday at our school chapel.. i loved going there n praying.. im quite fond of chapels.. n churches too... i loved sitting in the pews n praying.. :)

ishita said...

you know kesh...this one had me thinking for a really longg time...

no place really that i cld single out as the special place...but yes, there have been places! hmmm...instances wld be a better term...coz these instances cld be anywhre...anytime.

ummmm...do i sound i lil vague?!:)

but then again, i am very comfortable in my room...when I am ALONE! (that is soooo rare!) when I can sit/lie...and just thinkk...!

I don't frequent temples, churches...unless i am visiting a specific place (diff city etc) and there is a famous shrine. My relationship with God is very personal and not defined by any set ritual or faith...I enjoy festivals but more for a social reason than religious...

hmmmm...@To me they are all one - just many manifetsations of one ... that's is the only truth kesh! And it's a pity that people just turn a blind eye to that one thing we have in common and single out all the differences to create a world of hatred and mistrust!

how wz ur wkend btw?:)...hopin it wz even better than past wkends!:)...cya tmrw in blogsville!;-)...back from the wkend hibernation...i for a change have been active here this wkend too!:)!!

Cocaine Jesus said...

my mothers garden. it has that same tranquil feeling.

White Forest said...

i guess that happens coz there is soem cosmic power in such places...it happens with any spritual place!

thats really a grt feeling in itself!

Die Muräne said...

there's only one place were one can feeel peaceful: Switzerland ;-D

Contented said...

Very well said! God is every where! Religion is something created by humans after all! what differs is the path you follow inorder to have a manifestation of God.

Been to church sometimes. Most times to temples including Budha, Jain etc...Any place thats holy, spiritual gives me space to be peaceful and near to god...:)

WC mate!

**Religious places always make us peaceful..

not really...cos when I go to the Hindu temple I dun feel that...Im not saying it's a chaotic place but what I mean is I dun get that peace I feel at a Church. Maybe cos the Hindu temples do alot of pujas with noise and alot of ppl ard.


** But I always like less-crowded temples

thats what I mean. less-crowded.

thats so true...cos I go to the Hindu temple here in Sydney and I can never get the peace I want...cos ppl r always chatting and there's so many other noises. I dun like places of worship to have such disturbing noises.


**esp the old gothic ones

yeah arent they beautiful! Ur school church must have been something like my school church.


**I have this fantasy to get married again *to the same person ofcourse :P * in some beautiful Church in Greece

**Are you lucky that you have places like that, or am I unlucky that I don't?

no..it's not a matter of luck...whatever u feel wherever u r, is what u r to the world and who u r as a person. What's peaceful to me may not be so to u and vice versa. So all is ok as long as u r peaceful within urself :)

**i definitely dont like to go a crowded places except if its for shopping :).

~~Samuru999

**..when I am walking very early in the morning, when it is still dark and I am completely alone with my thoughts.

thats a very beautiful time of the day...


**I feel the peace of the awakening day which I am so grateful to be a part of.

indeed!


**The peace of the early dawm might cause my soul to shiver when I see all the beauty of nature and life around me.

thats a beautiful way to put it across...ty Margie!


**I have to be a part of nature to feel this oneness with the world and myself.

ur a nature-babe...


**Going dancing again???

~~Eclipsed Thoughts

hey sweety hows u?

**I too studied in a methodist school...

WOW my kickass partner went to a Methodist school too? Excellent!


**have always enjoyed hiking, so anytime when i have to climb a hill or any place, just sitting on the top, feeling the hard wind on your face and looking at the world, realizing how you exist in there and how much you belong there...

thats a very nice experience...


**at those times, i cant think of myself, i dont really know what i think of, whatever it is, it makes me happy and at peace!

so beautiful. ty!








~~Christabelle

**my troubles varnish, my broken heart is mended, only when I'm in his presence.

A very noble deed.

**i find peace at the temple near my house , and in my bedroom

nice Deepz...


**a long walk to the temple provides the necessary calming effect.

thats so true...the journey towards that place in itself is peaceful.

**and the stained huge windows, the sun streakin thru them...the quiet, the peace it was all just the perfect place for me...

and thats what I meant too.


**recently I went bcak to my old school just to feel that kind of peace there...but they had changed the whole chapel:(...

oh no...I wonder what happened to our chapel.


**I really don't have a place as such where I feel peace, except for the place next to my window maybe:)

Ekta said...

I dont think a temple or church does that to me...
Often i feel comepletely at peace with myself when I am sitting next to the sea on a quite evening..just staring at the boats go by...or sitting on the top of the mountain..thats when one gets the feeling of oneness....of being complete!

:P fuzzbox said...

whoaaa nice stuff.


**I m a surd guy...I have been to temple,mosque,Gurdwara and also to Church, but the effect is same...I find myself secluded from the rest of the world..

**Anywhere near water does that for me. Be that ocean, river, waterfall, whatever. It calms me.

so true...Water has that soothing effect on one's soul ha.









~~Mr. Maverick

**For me, the oneness of the world is felt on soccer stadiums in London.

Thats another great place to feel the oneness...everyone sharing the same passion.


**And when they score a goal, they all go hug each other and celebrate without worrying about their race, creed, citizenship or color!! That’s what I like about English soccer!

thats a beautiful way to put it Arun....ty! I loved this one!









~~Brute

~~the_new_cloud

**Ever closed your eyes and sat in a room with no one around with open arms thinking about nothing??

wow feels nice just reading this...









~~homo escapeons

**I can't stand churches. Hell for me would be an eternity sitting on a hard wooden pew listening to some weiner drone on and on and on and on about what he thinks about the price of tea in china.

lol ok...that maybe cos u go to church when it's crowded or when ur not really ready to grasp it's divinity.


**From the first second that I can remember setting foot into the place where they tell you how horrible you are and how grateful you should be for even being invited in the first place I hated it.

aww thats terrible indeed....but thats when u listen to all these lectures from priests. But have u been to a church when no one is ard?









~~Niki yokota

Niki huggggggz!

**im scared of religious places.
cant relax like u. *sob sob*
coz God might punish me for doing some bad things.

why r ya scared of God? U should never be scared of God...even if u think u have done wrong things in life, never be afraid to confess. God is ready to listen when ur ready to tell.

tc sweety!








~~Within Without

heyyy mate!

**While I no longer go to church, there is something very special about it, I admit.

Im glad u agree.


**I was brought up Roman Catholic and was an altar boy and the whole shebang. When I became an adult, it became less of a force in my life.

awww...


**Now I look at the church as a man-made institution and that as such, it contains many things I loathe: politics, a we're right you're wrong mentality, a whole bunch of other purely judgmental things.

yes...that happens within ppl's hearts...not within the church's heart.


**But that doesn't take away entirely from the feeling I had being there, while I was there.

so true.


**I just choose to have those feelings outside of that institution.

good on ya!


**Personally, I tend to have those feelings when I'm alone and outside in the trees and away from everything else and just by myself, where I can think and look around and see the beauty surrounding me.

thats nice WW...


**I hope you hold on to the ability to have the feelings you describe. When people lose that, they might as well have lost everything.

aww ty n hugggggggggz!








~~Jo

**Oh such a great song from Elton John.

It is ha.

**I can also relax myself in my favorite place aroung my home listening to music just being me.

~~The Phosgene Kid

**Great to have faith – it can get you through the tough times. I tend to believe in myself and those around me rather than some supernatural being.

ok..:)


**You have to go with whatever works best for you.

indeed...well-said Kiddo!








~~[==amutha==]

**being alone in temple is what i like the most, may be only next to being alone in beach :)

so true Amu.


**im sending u a mail.

~~amitsinha

**Hey, I remember that I used to be a very naughty boy in my school and my teachers who were nuns took me to chappel and make me meditate.

lol really? so sweet!


**I never took that seriously, but I feel its a great place to have an introspection about urself and try to realize the sins u have made in life .

yeah...


**Somehow, my trust in Almighty has always controlled me in doing sins, though small mischieves are something I cant control. may god bless all of us.

true....but as humans we sin unintentionally...and thats ok. What matters is we realise that and not do it again n again.








~~musings (m000nie)

m000nie mwahhhhhh!

**'the urge'... about some place i love... where i forget the world.. its a place i feel one with..

thats so true...it's really not the place, it's the instances that matter.


**ummmm...do i sound i lil vague?!:)

not at all. I know exactly what u mean.


**but then again, i am very comfortable in my room...when I am ALONE!... when I can sit/lie...and just thinkk...!

yeah thats a rare for me too.


**unless i am visiting a specific place (diff city etc) and there is a famous shrine. My relationship with God is very personal and not defined by any set ritual or faith...

Good girl...the way to be.


**I enjoy festivals but more for a social reason than religious...

aha...


**that's is the only truth kesh! And it's a pity that people just turn a blind eye to that one thing we have in common and single out all the differences to create a world of hatred and mistrust!

thats so true...Ish but unfortunatley not all ppl in this world think like u and I. its so sad!


**how wz ur wkend btw?:)...hopin it wz even better than past wkends

had a blast :) will tell u all soon abt it. What abt ur's?


**back from the wkend hibernation...

yeah I missed u alot in the past week or so...glad to have u bakk Ish HUGGGGGGZ!









~~Cocaine Jesus

~~Die Muräne

**there's only one place were one can feeel peaceful: Switzerland ;-D

**God is every where! Religion is something created by humans after all! what differs is the path you follow inorder to have a manifestation of God.

so true mate.


**Been to church sometimes. Most times to temples including Budha, Jain etc...Any place thats holy, spiritual gives me space to be peaceful and near to god...:)

thats nice. And how r u this week? In Italy already?

Not all religious places make us peaceful. I am more peaceful inside my bedroom with classical or Jazz music playing than in most noisy religious places. Because, as we all know that there is no longer peace in religious places in the Middle East, Asia and Africa where bombs are exploding and terrorist plots are being hatched and in Nigeria, religious worshippers are competing for the "Loudest Noise Makers" Guinness World Records.

There is only peace of mind wherever you find peace and wherever peacemakers abound and not where trouble makers, criminals and terrorists are lurking in mosques, churches and other religious temples pretending to be pious devotees of God, but are actually agents of the devil in disguise.

May the grace of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ be with you my Aussie sweetheart.

God bless.

cementry is the place where you will be born - death is not the termination - it is the intiation. we live only int he span of death to birth. this intervel is the real time we live - the other time what we keep trying to do in earth to make ourself back to the square one. death is the bonus for living and cemetry give you the freedom to live till another birth.

wheter you follow bhuddism or hindusim - i believe you believe rebirth there

Keshi said...

hey u r spot on! Peace lives in the mind, not in a place. And look what alot of mess religion has created these days! And it's really not the religions, but the ppl who create this mess. How sad.
