Made On Earth

I have a purpose in this world, I do. Although it doesn't come explained to me in a neatly printed document, I think my instincts tell me what it is...what it should be. I may not be as lucky as the girl next-door who fell in love and found her man or my friend who earns big bucks or my Granma who lived to see her great-grand-children or the neighbour who's got a great body and perfect health...I am just who I am. None of what others have would make me me. What I have and what I don't have is who I am. And with that I shall serve my purpose. Just like the trees serve us a purpose, just like the ocean never complains of being alone, just like the air does it's job with contentment, just like the sand don't whinge about our footsteps, just like the birds sing without fear, just like the sun never gets tired of rising, just like the moon shines beautifully, just like the rivers keep flowing, just like the bugs keep busy, just like the cactus standing strong, just like the fish keep swimming, just like the flowers giving fragrance and beauty, just like the dewdrop being unafraid to vanish, just like the stars appearing in the night, just like the rain paying a cool visit, just like the clouds floating in grace...my purpose on Earth shall be naturally driven activism no matter what. Love, strength, energy, courage, hope, trust, elegance, passion, devotion and contribution to the Earth, society and life is our purpose here. Any given job should be done with love, passion and determination. Nature does it's job without any complaints or expectations. We should too with whatever we have been given. We are all made on Earth and devotion to it and it's well-being would be the rent you pay for living on this Earth.

Giving Peace a chance:
Remember my friend who got her knickers twisted cos I cancelled dinner? I'm sure you all know her by now and of the major drama that was going on for weeks. Well guess what? Since sweet Lee asked me to make peace with my Cousin T yesterday, it dawned on me maybe I should try that trick on my friend, and I did. I sent her an email (after many weeks of silence between both of us) saying just this 'Wanna give PEACE a chance?'. That's all I said. She immediately replied saying 'yes, I was thinking of u too, how's it going K?'. Now how cool is that? :) Thanks Lee, your brilliant advice got us together again! PEACE does work (anger doesn't do a thing but continue to rot your heart) and Peace is the only way. Now with my cousin-T, I really don't know what I'd do yet. Let's give it some more time and see what happens. I'm not sure if she'd take it the same way as my friend did. People are different you see. Somehow I sensed my friend would reply in peace but I don't have that same feeling with cousin-T. I don't know why. Maybe cos I know she's an egoistic I'm-always-right-so-lets-go-back-to-what-happened-that-day-and-fight-again kinda person. So until she finds inner peace, I can't approach her, not yet. I want to end this post with the following brilliant quote taken from Fergal's last post.


INNER PEACE
WORLD PEACE

Now here are the lyrics of the song Imagine by John Lennon - one my favs ever. Watch the Youtube video done by someone for this song...it's just fantastic!


Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

tkkerouac said...

Kesh
you convinced me now
I'm going to email POSH and see if she wants to give peace a chance
(ok, as long as she stops wining and sucking the life out of me)

And is that you as a kid, very cute. Come see me as a dirty little orphan kid, don't you want to give me a hug??

priya said...

Keshi:

This is my favorite-
What I have and what I don't have is who I am.

I believe and stand by it. if nothing is close to us, we can go and do our best when see things which need attention.

Jewel Rays said...

woW....i love this post..:D And i believe its true. Everyone has a purpose in life. :D Its such a postive and uplifting post. What a good ride for the morning to start.

***anger doesn't do a thing but continue to rot your heart)

I so agree..

Rock on Keshalicious!

Blessed said...

Just beautiful Keshi just as you!

There is so much that we have--they are blessings!
We should be appreciative of them.
So much I don't have but you know what I am stilled blessed.
By knowing what I do have is such a blessing becuz once upon a time some of the blessings I have now I didn't have back then!

I am me. Love me or hate me. I am me. I try not to be anybody else. I don't try to mimmick. I am unique. I am special. I am blessed beyone belief. I am lucky.
So many on these Earth don't realize what all they have. So many always wanting more. So many unhappy, not content. We must focus on what we do have and when we realize what we do have it is alot and usually more than we deserve.

Thank you for being so inspiring and lovely.

Keshi, Hiya!!

Menchie said...

you'll know what to do with your cousin in time. just like with your friend.

Thumbelina said...

Hi Keshi,

Nice post!

I agree tat everyone has its own purpose in life. Whether it will benefit others or not, it doesn't really seem to be a negative issue.. It maybe negative to someone but positive to another... Nobody is perfect.. :)

There is a new chinese song with a phrase like this, "I am who I am..."

I know it is hard for u to forgive tat cousin of urs. Dun let this cousin spoil ur wonderful day. Chuck her aside and let her think of wat she has done. To her, she has done nothing wrong. But to u and us (as onlookers) we know... ^_^

southpaw said...

i always wonder whats my purpose in this world?

Shikha said...

'Wanna give PEACE a chance?'i'll never forget that:)

Jay said...

You're much more forgiving than I am. I wish I was more like you. I'm sure I should be.

Shiva said...

That's beautiful post and lyrics. Somestimes, life lets us wondering the ver purpuse of being in life! Though everything happens for a purpose, except for us, none thinks about findling a purpose. Being a thinking entity, we are blessed/cursed with the dilemma of finding the purpose of our existence all our lives! May be let's attempt to live here and now. Loved the pictures.

divya said...

reading those lines made my day!!
was sitting here discouraged, disappointed n lonely n then suddenly life found a reason..

deepsat said...

glad to know u made peace with your cousin.

wish giving peace a chance was also thought on by some more wise ppl in this world!!

ur purpose in life is defined by who u r!!

;-))

divya said...

thanks!!

chocolteluva said...

your purpose in life is definitely defined by who you are. very true, BUT, and there's always a big butt ;)
BUT, its also molded and shaped by the experiences you have and the PEOPLE that make those experiences possible, the people that influence you for good or bad. the people around you, that have great impacts on you.. because they help mold and shape your personality, your past, present and may be your future..

SECONDLy, yes peace is always good. but, again a but. BUT, i think the other person can say "ok peace it is" but doesnt really forgive you or let go of what happened. two weeks or two months from now, you cancel dinner again or something happens and it all comes out again. so before you go offering peace and or accepting peace make sure you have let go of what happened. mostly in regards to your cousin - not really your friend.

oy maybe i should start posting again, my comments are SUPER long :( sorry!

PrAcHi said...

PEACE does work (anger doesn't do a thing but continue to rot your heart)
Yeah.. so true Kesh.. Really.

Good to know that you and your friend are in good terms again. You know now after reading this post, I just think that ur friend might had her own reasons to get angry.. May be that was her bad day, and then the cancellation of the dinner made her outburst her feelings! Because sometimes you don’t know the person will get angry or feel bad for what reason. Even sometimes I get angry on some of the stupidest things. Good that you gave her another chance.

John Lennon is my fevourate too :). What a lovely song..
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Keshi said...

TK aww HUGGGGGGGZ!

btw who's POSH?


-----------------------------------

ty Priya and good on ya!



-----------------------------------

heyy Amylicious ;-) ty!


Hope u have a beautiful and peaceful day Missy.

-----------------------------------

ty Blessed n u r blessed!


**So many unhappy, not content.

so true...alot of the hatred and jealousy comes from not being content with self.


-----------------------------------

MG hiya! hows u?



-----------------------------------

yes Menchie...it'll take alot of time for me to even send a PEACE msg to my cousin T. Cos what she did and said that night echoes in my head all the time. It's not easy to erase the harshness of some words so easily.

I hope that time wont be too long tho..lets wait n see.

-----------------------------------

Thumbee tnxx so much and wut u said is true..whats good for me may be bad for someone else. but wut matters is that we do our part.


** let her think of wat she has
done

yes...she hurt me alot with derogatory words..she spoke to my sis on the fone that night and used alot of harsh words on me and my mum. I can never forgive her...atleast not now. It'll take a long time for me to forget those words.

-----------------------------------

Southy heyy!

**i always wonder whats my purpose in this world

I used to be like u...always wondered. Then I realised Im already serving my purpose...by being me, who I am, with whatever I have. There's nothing less and nothing more than that.

-----------------------------------

Im glad Shikha :)


-----------------------------------

Jay it does depend on who Im making peace with...cos I knew my friend is a good-hearted girl no matter what..she's a dignified soul and someone I've known for years. And since we took a break from each other, it helped to see things clearly. And I knew she's respond to my PEACE msg w.o. hesitation.

Now with my cuzn T, it's altogether a different story.

U can only be good to those who wanna see ur good.


-----------------------------------


Shiva ty so much!


**May be let's attempt to live here and now

yes thats exactly what we should do! Now is the keyword.


-----------------------------------

Divya aww Im glad I cud be a ray of hope for ya...here's sending u lods of hugs and angel blessings!

Pick up n move girl :)

-----------------------------------

ty Deepz and thats true...ur purpose is defined by who u r.


btw I didnt make Peace with my cuzn T yet. It was with my friend :)


-----------------------------------


hey Chocolte!


**its also molded and shaped by the experiences you have and the PEOPLE that make those experiences possible, the people that influence you for good or bad

very true!


I didnt make peace with cuzn T yet sweetie. It was only with my friend...the friend who got upset with cancelling the dina date.


**so before you go offering peace and or accepting peace make sure you have let go of what happened

so true! And I know with my friend I know I wont bring that last fight again. She seemed to have put that behind her too. I can only wait to find out what she does during the next dina date - which we havent set yet :) But all's good so far.


And with my cuz T, Im not even ready to send a PEACE msg to her yet...no ways. Cos right now Im quite disappointed with her and all the left-over feelings from that Fri nite argument r still hanging adr in my head. Apparently she used some pretty derogatory terms on me and my mum (to my sis on the fone) and that put me off big time. Im not gonna argue with her cos I see no poitn argueing with someone so gullible, cruel and self-obsessed. And making PEACE with someone like that is a very long way from now. I dunno whether it'll even happen, unless ofcourse she finds her INNER peace and sends me a msg. Even then it'll take alot of time for me to get over the shock and hurt caused from her words...someone I thought I knew well and loved alot.


Keshi.

deepsat said...

sorry, i was wrong! guess u shud make peace wid her also!! atleast u can give peace a chance!!

;-))

Keshi said...

Prachi ty sweetie! And hows u?


** I just think that ur friend might had her own reasons to get angry..

yeah...she's reasonable and the fact that ONLY fought abt that matter and didnt call me names or bring out the past, makes me respect her and wanna get back with her.

:)

Glad u like Lennon. He's one of the best ever.

Really a great blog with neat postings. Know me more about at www.rameshgopal365.blogspot.com

alex said...

Kesh,

About your cousin T; you could give a try because though we might feel we know a person, it might not be true.

Keshi said...

Deepz its ok n tnxx!

**atleast u can give peace a chance

yeah but not so easily. Liek Chocolte said giving Peace a chance has to be crystal clear from both sides. With my friend's case, I did stuff up and I owed her a Peace msg. And she is a dignified woman and I knew she'd u'stand what Peace is. And there was along break between us b4 I sent that msg.

Now with my cuzn it's different. It only happened last Fri and it was much more nastier than what happened between me and my friend. Cuzn T has blasted me with very bad words...my sis told me later on. What wrong did I do to deserve that sort of treatment? She has no right to speak abt me like that and to my sis.

So yeah Im not yet ready to Peace out with her. Not for a very long time, I know. Cos the hurt she caused is still ver raw. And Peace isnt cheap.

WC Ramesh and ty! I will check u out soon :)

Poo said...

hi bebooo how are you feeling ??

Keshi said...

Im pretty good Poo sweetie ty and urself?


Keshi.

Poo said...

you know what when i read ur post the first thing that came to my mind was to talk my friend S

" remember she is my friend but we are not talking from couple if months due to some stupid misunderstanding "

I know it was not my fault, but if i take the first move thr's no harm in it.

and baeutiful post "Thank you Keshi and Lee for showing me a way Anger or Peace " and i choose Peace!!

From Google Search -

Life is an echo. What you send out - comes back. What you sow you reap. What you give - you get. What you see in others - exists in you.

Regardless of who you are or what you do, if you are looking for the best way to reap the most reward in all areas of life, you should look for the good in every person and in every situation and adopt the golden rule as a
way of life . . .

Aditi said...

the beginning of your entry sounded like something i keep telling myself lately...
hehe

as for peace.. its easy to make peace where there is no facetiousness or malice involved.. we're allowed to be angry at the ones we love and we are allowed to be difficult occasionally or throw tantrums. that is what friends and loved ones are for..
but if that somewhere causes ill harbored feelings or a rip in the fabric of the relationship then u can never fully repair it..
all else fixes itself with time.. cuz some relationships (friendships etc) are just meant to be

Mr. J said...

Oh Boy!! If I start to think about my purpose, i'll be depressed.

Poo said...

hugzzzzz Keshiii I really Love you ..... a Big HUG to you
and i will keep you posted , but it will take little time will do something and let you

muaaaaahhh Take care babeee and Sweet Dreams ;))

Keshi said...

ty Poo HUGGGGGGGGGZ!

**I know it was not my fault, but if i take the first move thr's no harm in it.


well u know wut...it's not very easy to do. ppl may say PEACE OUT but it's not that easy when it comes to doing it with someone who hurt u badly. Now with my friend it wasn't too hard..cos all we had was some stupid argument over a dina date and we didn't use any harsh words on each other or bring up the past. We were both dignified enough not to do that. So the memories of that argument weren't so painful. And also cos we took some time away from each other, we cud see things clearly. And I realised that I need her back and it's time to send her a msg. It worked like a charm. Not only cos I was willing to peace but also cos she was willing too.

I dunno what really happened between u and S, but I believe u and I trust every word u say. So since she's the one who hurt ya, and keeping quiet now, it's really her duty to make peace with ya. Then again, if we keep saying it's YOUR duty and not MINE, peace wont stand a chance. So Im glad ur willing to make that first step. Shows how kind-hearted and willing u r. Try it out. If she doesnt respond it's ok...atleast u tried. But if she did respond, then hey thats just shows she's sorry too and was willing to talk to ya. ALL THE BEST hun!



**Life is an echo. What you send out - comes back.

definitely! Wut u sow, u reap for sure. We cant blame others for our misfortunes...we oursleves r our masters.


** you should look for the good in every person

yes and respect individuality as long as it doesnt harm anyone.

HUGGGGGGGZ n do keep me posted abt ur friend S. TC!

-----------------------------------

Aditi heyy :)


yes..if there wa sno malice involved, it's easier. And that was the case with my friend..we didnt' have any harsh words or hatred coming outta that argument. So it was easy to make peace.

Now with my cuzn T it's altogether a different story! She used alot of harsh and derogatory words at me and my MUM! I heard abt it only yday from my sis who was on the fone with her that nite. How dare she speak abt me and my mum like that. There's no way Im gonna send her a peace msg! I should be crazy then. Mebbe she should attain her INNER PEACE and say her VERY due apology to me! Wut say Aditi?


-----------------------------------


hehe Johno cmon it cant be that bad?

Cuckoo said...

Nice post Keshi.

'Wanna give PEACE a chance?' was the Best !!

Aditi said...

yeah but see i am a different person i guess.. i can forgive things said abt me.. but not abt my family.. i mean even if someone apologised it would take a while for me to let go of the words said against my mom..i think u're doing the right thing in just letting things settle down..

Silvara said...

Hey Keshi girl :) There is one prayer that has stuck with me over the yeasr. I'm not Christian but Evs said this to me once and I have never forgotten it (well I know the gist of it - forgive me if I get the exact wordings wrong):

Please Lord, give me the strength to change the things I can, the grace to accept the things I can't and the wisdom to know the difference.

Everyone has the potential to do great things in their own way and making peace is the first step. Keep smiling girl :)

Prashant said...

Hey Keshi....One interseting point.
If you know who you are and what is your purpose then are two possibilities:

1. Either you are in dreams and misleading with wrong purpose and you might be taking it off as your real purpose of life.

2. You have stopped thinking.

Because after knowing the real purpse there wont be anything to look for.Then you dont need to think that much.But again as i said to stop thiinking is again a blockage to know your purpose.
So dont make life so much complex and enjoy with what you have with the lovely people you got in your life.

Enjoyyyyyyyy

Keshi said...

Icedude ty! :)


-----------------------------------

Cuckoo ty and I havent forgotten ur tag...it will come out soon :)



-----------------------------------

Aditi yeah ur right.


** i can forgive things said abt me.. but not abt my family..

thats what Im like too. I cant believe she said something like that abt my whole family. Im still in shock. My mum is a good woman. And Im not just saying that cos she's my mum. Cuzn T's mum is the richest aunt who said NO for help when uncle V was in trouble. Her mum is truly a gossipmonger and creates trouble in many ppl's lives. She has done that over the years and I cant believe her kids still believe in her!

Anyways she abused my family (and I have never said a word abt her rather scary family)...thats unforgivable. Thats what my heart says right now..lets see what happens in the future.

tnxx Aditi HUGGGGGGGGZ!


-----------------------------------

HUGGGGGGGGZ Silvara!


**Please Lord, give me the strength to change the things I can, the grace to accept the things I can't and the wisdom to know the difference.

thats a beautiful verse and yes I have seen that b4. I always thought it's a great way to see life and I always found peace in those words.

ty babez!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Prashant ty!


**1. Either you are in dreams and misleading with wrong purpose and you might be taking it off as your real purpose of life.

**2. You have stopped thinking.


huh who says that? :)


well I didnt say I FOUND my purpose for sure..I said I HAVE a purpose and my instincts are showing me the directions. Besides a purpose doesn't have to be so complex that u look for it all ur life. Ur purpose cud be just being here and blogging to reach out to the world. :) Thats just an example btw. What Im trying to say is ur purpose isnt gonna be printed out neatly for u to read, it's somewhere within u, it's in ur daily deeds, and it's not a definite answer.

tnxx anyways and hey who said Im not enjoying life :)

Keshi.

Nora said...

Beautiful post Keshi.

Pritika Gupta said...

Nice post keshi..that is wht the frndship is ..'No Ego issues..' Ego just ruin the relationship.. I dont know y sometimes its so difficult to say sorry to the person who have atleast some importance in ur life..:)

Shitrint said...

hi keshi! im doing ok, girl. thank u for asking. :)

i loved ur post. i keep asking myself at intervals too as to what my purpose is in this world. and everytime i ask myself i just feel lost. i wonder why things abt me, or in my life are certain way, why some work out and why some dont. i try to be extra cautious, that after every experience, wat is the lesson that "the one up above" wanted me to learn. that i dont miss the leson and make the same mistakes and blah bla....and i am as clueless as before! :P

it was a great idea to reconcile keshi. tho sometimes the dust hasnt settled and its best to let things be. and of course there are self righteous people! wat can one do abt them? its such a relief to have mental peace... :)

PS: that beatles song lyrics are lovely. :)

hey, cud ya temme watdoes ur name mean? coz in hindi and sanskrit here, kesh means 'hair'. in marathi too, 'kes' means the same. was just wondering, if ur name has sanskrit roots. tc!

Though its taken me damn long enough I think I may finally be fulfilling part of my purpose. In part it involves activisim for ending the stigma that is cast upon those who are mentally ill. My book will be published this year and half of the proceeds go to the World Health Organization's mental health division.

Princess said...

Hi Kesh,

I think this post is one of the best written by ya :) I liked the lotus pic.. *cheers* I liked the nature in the post and the song and the lyrics.
What to say? Hugz..

And Thank you so much dear for a beautiful mention in the Between friends blog... I was little gloomy today.. After reading your post here and there... I am a back to a joyous mood.

I'll always be your friend.
much luv,

lee said...

keshi -I'm so happy for you that you made up with your friend! :). You must feel so much better now. (You have made me realise that I must say something sensible on the very rare occasion ;) ).

Shionge said...

Oh how sweet Keshi to hear this and that there is peace at last :D

You do have a purpose Keshi....purpose is offering your true friendship to us :D

Btw Keshi...I can't see my own blog...:( Cannot see my link at all.

Drama Div@ said...

you might like this one...If I Should Die Tonight

If I should die to-night,
My friends would look upon my quiet face
Before they laid it in its resting-place,
And deem that death had left it almost fair;
And, laying snow-white flowers against my hair,
Would smooth it down with tearful tenderness,
And fold my hands with lingering caress, --
Poor hands, so empty and so cold to-night!

If I should die to-night,
My friends would call to mind with loving thought
Some kindly deed the icy hands had wrought,
Some gentle word the frozen lips had said,
Errands on which the willing feet had sped;
The memory of my selfishness and pride,
My hasty words would all be put aside,
And so I should be loved and mourned to-night.

If I should die to-night,
Even hearts estranged would turn once more to me,
Recalling other days remorsefully;
The eyes that chill me with averted glance
Would look upon me as of yore, perchance,
And soften in the old familiar way,
For who could war with dumb, unconscious clay?
So I might rest, forgiven of all to-night.

Oh, friends! I pray to-night,
Keep not your kisses for my dead, cold brow:
The way is lonely, let me feel them now.
Think gently of me; I am travelworn;
My faltering feet are pierced with many a thorn.
Forgive, oh, hearts estranged, forgive, I plead!
When dreamless rest is mine I shall not need
The tenderness for which I long to-night.

dharmabum said...

beautiful song. curiously, i listended to it for the first time only a few days back - on radio.

someone once told me this -
'the very fact that u r still alive means that u have a purpose to fulfil' - i think its very true.

Kalpana said...

I too feel that there is some purpose for me to live. Something deep within me talks saying always 'Do Something Good'. Though we don't realize we do, we still feel a lot to be done since nothing is started yet. Good that u initiated for PEACE. A lovely word. Hope, everyone lives with INNER PEACE which will solve most of our problems in life. Happy day!

trinitystar said...

Love your youthful and inspiring post ... you are a credit to life.
Forgiveness and peace with love is always the way.
Well done.
hugs for you. :o)

ooh Keshi, am glad u and ur friend are giving peace a chance andback to normal...things might work out with ur cosin too :) i agree,we all have a purpose,which looks unknow and 'blank' at times, but at the end of it all, everyhting becomes clear and beautiful and happy and gladdd!!!!heeeheee!! you know what?am too excited today ;)! am going back to my own land, the place wher i haaaaaad studied my bachelors, and so i am again on a brak from blogging!see ya soon!!takecare!!!!!!!be hapy!!!!!!!!!!
hugs for you!

Prashant said...

Even i didnt said that you are not enjoying life.
But what i said is that according to me......
If you have find your purpose than it means you had stopped thinking. Because there is nothing to be known in this world like who you are and why you are here???

Just live and let live..
And you know what lies within....
"Salvation lies within"....

smiles :)

Prashant said...

And yes, i agree.
Your words are really very true.

And a question for you:
"What is the purpose of a purposeless life??"

Think before answering this one..

First part of this post was wonderful! (which is not to say the rest wasn't:)

& I'm glad you were able to make up with your friend. Good news indeed, was such a small thing to lose an entire friendship over, the cancelling of some plans.

Jeevan said...

Lovely written keshi! Everyone’s life was set in this world for a purpose, it fully used when we realize it. Glad you make peace to end the week’s drama with ur friend. The lyric was nice:)

Asha said...

You are philosophical today!:))

s0ul said...

wow, so u finally made peace.. makes me think of all the people i have to start the process with, well.. most of them dont even deserve it, but some of them do.. and after reading this post, i feel like i should reach out. thnks kesh.
p.s- i heart john lennon.

alex said...

Keshi,

If one can have this attitude 'People talk. Let them talk.'

Moreover, if a person did something which did not hurt one, it would not be difficult to attain peace. The more hurt the more difficult for peace.

Again, it is your choice.

Top cat said...

beautiful post keshi

DJ said...

beautiful...
no one knows his/her purpose on this earth until they reach their final moments to draw... thats the only moment you realize what you were destined to...
so keep breathing... :)

i believe one day when my time finally comes to bid farewell to everyone, i would realize the reasons for my being... until then i won't be able to see all the dots connected together that sketches my life...
only thing i do right now is - keep adding colors everyday as i hate my life sketched in gray... :)

Keshi said...

Nora MWAH!


-----------------------------------

Pritika yeah the EGO is the biggest culprit. But I wont deny that we need a bit of ego to survive. But not when we r in the wrong.


** I dont know y sometimes its so difficult to say sorry to the person who have atleast some importance in ur life

true. I always apologise when Im in the wrong. But if the other person is in the wrong and wont apologise to me, I wont go out of my way to make peace either. ppl should realise that they can be wrong too.

-----------------------------------

Shitrint ty so much sweetie!


**that after every experience, wat is the lesson that "the one up above" wanted me to learn.

very true! And that itself is one of ur purposes here on Earth. Cos when we learn the lessons we r going towards the LIGHT.


My Name Keshi...is a shortened form of the name Keshini - a Sinhalese name. Which is Sanskrit for 'woman with beautiful hair' :). So u were right. It's got a Sanskrit background to it. Cos Sinhalese is a dialect of Sanskrit.

HUGGGGGGGGGGGGZ!

-----------------------------------

Uttsy ur useless and good for nothing? Who says that???


**tooo much of positive vibes

hehe tnxx! Sometimes I can be very negative and at other times I can be very positive. I told ya na Im bi-polar hehe.


Southy o well...I'll ans him :)

Dalicia u guys always fight? hmmmm....no good then :)

Caz thats a beauty! Wut an awesome purpose :) HUGGGGGGGGGZ! And I hope it comes true soon!


-----------------------------------

Chandni heyy I rem ya...long time! Im still alive :) hows u?



-----------------------------------

Johno I wudnt mind a whole bottle of Jack Daniels now :) Cos I really wanna erase from my memory some harsh words said by some ppl...I really do.


-----------------------------------


Meister well-done girl HUGGGGGGGGGGGGZ! Im so proud of ya.

Ur activism in the mental health area is a brilliant job that ur doing for this world and it's ppl. Not all r like u...I mean ppl keep saying they wanna find their purpose but they dun really do anything for the world while they can. And there lies the real purpose that they often mistake as something divine that they might see after death!! Well its not.

We must do it while we're here on Earth and while we can - and ur doing just that. WONDERFUL!

-----------------------------------

aww Aish u deserve every bit of recognition and a whole lot of love n support for the wonderful work u do thru ur blog. Its just fantastic. HUGGGGGGGGGGZ n tnxxx!



-----------------------------------


Lee sweetie ur sensible all the time...and Keshi is alot richer for knowing ya. HUGGGGGGGGGZ!



-----------------------------------


aww ty Shionge MWAH!

huh why cant u see ur blog? did u try ctrl+F5?



-----------------------------------


ty Jac!

Peace takes it's own sweet time...I know :)


-----------------------------------

ty so much and same goes to ya Vikas!



-----------------------------------


Diva I simply LOVED that poem WOW! ty so much for sharing it with us here. I had tears reading it.


**Some gentle word the frozen lips had said,
Errands on which the willing feet had sped;
The memory of my selfishness and pride,
My hasty words would all be put aside,



I loved that bit...how true ha. I mean we all have good and bad in us...but when we die we must always see a person for their good deeds done.

ty so much n HUGGGGGGGGGZ!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

Dharma Im glad u like the song. It sure is a co-incidence ha :)


**'the very fact that u r still alive means that u have a purpose to fulfil'

so true! Often ppl think that they'll find their purpose towards the end of life...I dun think that way. I think if ur breathing today, u r living ur purpose.

-----------------------------------

ty Kalapna!


**Something deep within me talks saying always 'Do Something Good'

true..it's what ur instincts say. I believe that Instincts r a great gift given to us..but alot of ppl dun use it much.


-----------------------------------

ty so much Trinity!


-----------------------------------

Shammu all the best with ur trip and have a wonderful break sweetie! Im gonna miss ya....



-----------------------------------

Prashant heyy!


**If you have find your purpose than it means you had stopped thinking. Because there is nothing to be known in this world like who you are and why you are here???

who said that PURPOSE = EVERYTHING?

:)



**"What is the purpose of a purposeless life??"

Another purpose.

:):) Well I know what ur trying to say is that if we found the purpose of this life, then there's no purpose left behind hence whats the use of that purposeless life. This is how I see it Prashant. Now u dun have to agree with me, this is just my opinion ok :).

I think purpose of life isnt a definite answer. It's not a clear definition laid out for u. Often ppl think there's this one big purpose for us that we need to go on finding thru our entire lives. Not really. Cos some ppl even die w.o. realising one bit of it. And no one knows whats there after death.

So what I think is that my purpose is here with me, right now...it's in every job I take up, it's in every r'ship, it's in every word I say, it's in my daily deeds, it's in the lessons I learn, it's in the efforts I put, it's in the love, passion and dedication that I have. It's in the things I do to myself,others and the world WHILE I'm breathing.

-----------------------------------


ty Autumn n huggggggggggz!

yeah twas the whinging was not worth it :)

-----------------------------------

ty so much Jeevan and Im glad u like the lyrics :)



-----------------------------------


Asha hey yeah :) mebbe cos I had to fight some real difficult feelings myself...so I put up that post as a self-healing process hehe. tnxxx!


-----------------------------------

Purnima I hope ur feeling much better today?


**most of them dont even deserve it, but some of them do

true...some ppl r not worth the effort. I agree!

:)

I hope u make it up with ur mates. Good luck sweetie!

-----------------------------------

Alex ur right...if there was alot of HURT caused then it's harder for Peace to come ard...takes longer. Sometimes never.


**If one can have this attitude 'People talk. Let them talk.'

WOW I like that and thats what i always say to ppl. Im gonna keep that in mind. ty so much Alex!


-----------------------------------

awww ur soooo cute Poo HUGGGGGGGGGGGGZ! :)

I didnt u'stand that much but Im guessing it's something like 'come ard my friend...'?

Keshi said...

Ghosty yeah, imagine all the ppl...living life in peace...


-----------------------------------

Southy heyy!

**Glad that u identified ur purpose, my search is on

LOL I didnt say I identified my ultimate purpose...I said I do have a purpose and this is what my instincts say. The realisation of it itself is good enough.

Cos like u I always break my head to think what my purpose here may be. Then I realised it's really not something definite and time-dependent. And alot of ppl think that finding the purpose is a big, hard and long journey...when it really shouldnt be. If u look deep inside of u, ur instincts spell out ur purpose. Really. Cos the purpose of a job is to be well-done...the purpose of a r'ship is love and devotion....the purpose of life on Earth is Life itself. What else can it be? Ur purpose lies right here and right now, in every little thing u do. It's in the love, passion and goodwill that u convey in every small way. Thats what I believe.

Cos there r so many ppl who die w.o. even realising that.


-----------------------------------

Yashita we all have a common purpose...thats what i think. Read my reply above to Souhty.

:) tnxx n hugggggggggz!

**no one knows his/her purpose on this earth until they reach their final moments to draw... thats the only moment you realize what you were destined to...

how can u say that? :) I mean u haven't reached ur final moments so how do u know that ur final moments will make u realise wut ur purpose is? What abt NOW? If death brings the truth to u, then why r we alive now?

The Phosgene Kid said...

I thought your purpose on earth was to keep me entertained. You've done a pretty good job so far!!

Invincible said...

Congrats to your uncle and to you for the prayers that he won the case.

The song 'imagine' is wonderful.

I plain hate the ppl with ego.

If we know the purpose then there wd be know fun in living and then everyone's life wud be more or less the same n monotonous.

I love the time when i am in peace with my mind.. very rare though but the time when u are calm, motionless, thoughtless .. wow just imagining this itself is rejuvenating :)

Dawn....सेहर said...

True sometimes...your act make you God...not coz you were at fault or so...just coz that you thought of your friend's happiness :)
It makes you above and beyond dear :) hope your friend realizes this

Huggggggz to my dear sis
Cheers always

DJ said...

am alive to find the truth...
its upto you... many things happen which are not supposed to, or which you do not like, but in the end it is for a particular reason...
it might be possible that you do not realize that reason until long long...
so that's why, at the end of life at least you can realize everything...
you can't sum it all before the consequences are rippled down the time to change some other things...

Sujit said...

thats great! so found your inner thing? so reached the enlightment :).. now spread to others :)

krystyna said...

HI Keshi!
I give you Oscar for your wonderful posts. And thanks for the lyrics of this song. It's one of my favs too.
Peace to you!

Keshi said...

Phos in that way Im very successful ha :)

-----------------------------------

ty so much v000nie! So nice to see u ard.


**If we know the purpose then there wd be know fun in living and then everyone's life wud be more or less the same n monotonous.

actually I see it the other way...if we do know atleast something close to the purpose of this life, then we'd live life more :). Cos it's when we dun realise our need here that we do all the wrong things.

Peace of mind and those quiet moments r rare and so precious. Ur spot on.

-----------------------------------

Dawny HUGGGGGGGGGGGZ n ty!


**just coz that you thought of your friend's happiness

awww...but I really see it as something good in my friend too. Cos she responded to it with peace...and it's usually not the case. Cos ppl r always so quick to dig the past and start fighting all over again. She didnt. Instead she smiled and Welcomed my msg of peacing out. I value that in her.


-----------------------------------

DJ tnxx!


**so that's why, at the end of life at least you can realize everything

true...sometimes when death is knocking on the door, ppl realise the the real value and purpose of life. it hits home. I agree.

-----------------------------------


hey Sujit!

**so found your inner thing? so reached the enlightment

goshh I didnt reach enlightenment LOL! I said I atleast know what my instincts say abt Life and my purpose here. And Purpose doesn't have to be Enlightenment :)


-----------------------------------

awww no need of an Oscar Krys :) Just u being my true friend is an award for me. HUGGGGGGGGGGGZ!

keshi Da,
i dont know how u might feel but there is some unknown force which always prevents me
from reading ur blog...i dont know why...i come here n i came many times...i scroll down the page
...there are so many comments...so i think 'yes keshi writes good...' but...but...till now i couldnt read
a single post of urs...there is a super-good feeling about this blog, something which feels 'unreal',
which keeps me pulling off from reading ur blog :D
anyway, not all people are alike, isnt it.?.
keep posting...hope u understood what i said!

Vivhyd said...

Hey Keshi gal.. Long time.. Hope u r dng good!... its my bday today (22nd).. cudnt not get greetings frm you :p...

deepsat said...

didnt know abt that nasty side of ur cousin! i understand. peace is not free and for such ppl, they will trash it on shot!!

and if u r hurt by it, which i do feel u r, i guess u shud give it time!

in fact at times i feel, there r some ppl to whom giving peace a chance is like banging ur head against the wall. u r not competing against the strength of the wall, but rather an ever building of ego!!

take care

Ganesh Ranganathan said...

Great to hear that you finally made peace with your pal... :-)

Keshi said...

Southy :):) I hope u know I didnt mean u have to agree with my opinion. Everyone has a different view of it and I respect ur's.

-----------------------------------

hey Endevour :)

**there is a super-good feeling about this blog, something which feels 'unreal',
which keeps me pulling off from reading ur blog


so does that mean this blog puts u off LOL! Im only kidding :)


so did u read this post? what d u think abt it? :)


-----------------------------------

Viv HAPPY BIRTHDAY mate!

tnxx for telling me or else I'd have regretted not wishing someone as special as u on his bday!

HUGGGGGGGGGGZ!


-----------------------------------

Deepz I totally agree.



**in fact at times i feel, there r some ppl to whom giving peace a chance is like banging ur head against the wall

LOL true! This is such an instance. Cos I just know she'd wanna fight and not think abt just today...she'd bring back the past and I just hate that.

tnxx mate! I hope I'd be able to get the UN/Amnesty to help me out in that peace process LOL!

Nice to know you got back with your friend.

All in all, a nice week for you, right?

SamY said...

** may not be as lucky as the girl next-door who fell in love and found her man or my friend who earns big bucks

grass is always greener on the other side ... n who said those who didn't quite end up in love with someone b4 marriage are unlucky??

** What I have and what I don't have is who I am. And with that I shall serve my purpose ... my purpose on Earth shall be naturally driven activism no matter what.

he he ... this sounds more like a gyan guru talking or a oath taking ceremony :D

** I sent her an email (after many weeks of silence between both of us) saying just this 'Wanna give PEACE a chance?'.

thats a lovely way to patch up ... I'd send a cartoon character holding up a white flag :D

** PEACE does work

and EGO doesn't ;)

** Maybe cos I know she's an egoistic

and maybe ur quite a bit urself in the name of being honest to thyself ... nothing wrong about that tho

"Any given job should be done with love, passion and determination." - I totally agree... I don't give a shit whether nature, or anyone, or anything else does the same, though... (with all due respect, Keshi... I know - at least I hope I know! - you won't mind me being honest and blunt...) I do it because I want to, and that is as good a reason as any, n'est-ce pas? :)

As I said before, I am an atheist... don't believe we are here for God or for a purpose... I don't know WHY we are here though! I'll just live my life the best I can, and cherish it... :)
