Something Beautiful to Read.

“It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive. 
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it. 
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human. 
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithlessand therefore trustworthy. 
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it's not pretty, every day,and if you can source your own life from its presence. 
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children. 
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back. 
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away. 
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.”

I love you Rain.

Things I love about Rain.

         The dark fluffy clouds that cover the sky.
·         The way all the birds fly away to their nests.
·         The thunder.
·         The pitter patter sound.
·         The water trails on window planes.
·         The way wind shield wipers move across the windshield.
·         Tea tastes better when it’s raining.
·         Coffee tastes even better than tea when it’s raining.
·         Pakorey taste..well phenomenal with hari chunti when it’s raining.
·         The feeling of water droplets on my face.
·         The shivers that run down my spine when I am drenched in cold rain water.
·         Cool breeze during the rain.
·         The crazy dance in rain.
·         Closing my eyes and facing sky .
·         Taking out colorful umbrellas just to pose for the pictures. Seriously who needs umbrellas when it’s raining?
·         How everything looks fresh and green after it rains.
·         Waking up to the sound of rain.
·         Falling asleep to the sound of rain.
·         Music becomes magical during the rain.
·         The smell during the rain.
·         The smell after the rain. Petrichor. I wish I could bottle up that smell.
·         Rain itself.
