Love with Gratitude

Dear 2013,

Thank You ! Gifting myself Love, and attempting to suspend doubts and fears I created for myself ...

गांजा अफ़ीम और पोस्त भांग, गांजा शराबें पीवता
एक प्रेम रस चाखा नहीं , अमली हुआ तो क्या हुआ ? 
You take ganja  opium bhang,
You drown yourself in spirits!
You never tasted the nectar of love,
what kind of a drunk are you?
- Kabir (Source: Kabir in Pakistan) 

Ending the year and sharing the much needed 'words of wisdom' given to me....

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others” ― Martha Graham

Love and Light and Thanks to all you wonderful people out there! Seasons Greetings... =)
