I Couldn’t Catch The Night

Darling night, you are naughty like a kiddo

I was watching to see you rising after sun said good bye

But, little by little, around me, you coloured the space dark

You were so close, yet I couldn’t catch you

As I said, “I couldn’t catch you,”

Mr. Cool Moon waved me “Hi” with gentle smile 🙋

I too smiled waving him “Hi” 🙋

Universe in Us

The Universe is in me and you

The Universe is in us really my dear

Whatever we say and wish, Universe hear

It’s a magic lamp with only “YES” option

As I say, “I am always in bliss,”

Universe in me says “Yes dear, you are”

And as I say, “I don’t feel well.”

Universe says the same “Yes dear, you are”

I then see happening what I said to myself

The magic is thus within us dearies 🙂

Salute to Mary Oliver

I read about Mary Oliver, the blessed poet from the blog post of my saintly friend, Leon Hieros. I’m reading about her for first time and when I read just two poems, I instantly started loving her poems. Reading the post and her poem, and going through the link from that post, I found this wonderful poem. It touched my heart and filled me with awe and divine joy. With my hearty salutes to Mary Oliver, I’m sharing that poetic piece of wonder with you all 😊

THE SUMMER DAY

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

Hearty Condolences dear Mary Oliver

Omnipresent Lord

God loves us a lot that our very heart is where the lord resides. All guidances, intuitions, happiness, peace all we get from here. What we feel we get from others is also from God only. Some experiences appear tough and tiring, some appear smooth and encouraging, both are the ways of lord only to help us to realise who we truly are. If we focus on lord’s presence in heart and move on with our daily life, we could move through both experiences with strength. As God is present everywhere and in everything and within us too, we’re never ever alone dear ones 😊🕊

ANDROPAUSE – Let’s Have An Awareness

I respect women, men and transgenders equally as they are. In my medical transcription career, I have worked with the cases more of psychology and neuropsychology patients. Thus I came to know about how physical factors along with emotional factors, societal factors, familial factors affect the mind of a human being.

Few days back during my work, I came across this medical term – “Andropause.” Until then, I was unaware of this medical condition. I googled on the topic and read about it. Then with the usual work and other things, I forgot about it. Yesterday, me and my friend, while going to our Taichi class, talked about the conditions women are still facing in our society along with the changes a woman’s body undergoes through the years of life. We talked about Menopause, and then suddenly, I remembered about Andropause and I asked her have she heard about Andropause. She said, “No, I didn’t.” I then told her I came across this medical term during my work and thought about writing it and our talk reminded me about it. So, now I’m writing this for all who are unaware about this phase of a man’s life.

ANDROPAUSE

ANDROPAUSE is otherwise called male menopause. It is also known to be testosterone deficiency, androgen deficiency, or late-onset hypogonadism. It occurs due to age-related deficiency in male hormones. Andropause causes drop in testosterone production in men. Testosterone is a steroid hormone that stimulates development of male secondary sexual characteristics, produced mainly in the testes, but also in the ovaries and adrenal cortex. It is the primary male hormone. Drop in this hormone affects
physical, sexual, and psychological health of a man.

One thing I would like to mention here is, unlike Menopause which affects all women, not all men are affected by Andropause. Some experience few changes, while some experience a lot of changes in their
physical, sexual, and psychological health. Andropause usually occurs between the ages of 40 and 60, but men as young as 30 may begin to experience these symptoms.

Symptoms of Andropause:

  • Low energy
  • Depression or sadness
  • Decreased motivation
  • Lowered self-confidence
  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  • Increased body fat
  • Reduced muscle mass and feelings of physical weakness
  • Restlessness and difficulty concentrating
  • Gynecomastia, or development of breasts
  • Decreased bone density
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Reduced libido
  • Infertility
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes

How to deal with Andropause?

If you experience any of the above symptoms, you can have a blood test done to check your testosterone levels. You may talk with your family physician about doing this blood test. Treatment is needed only if you are severely affected by the Andropause symptoms. Else, healthier lifestyle changes like the following can be adopted in your daily life:

  • Regular exercise
  • Deep breathing
  • Eating healthy diet
  • Eating food mindfully
  • Having good sleep
  • Decrease stress level by actively participating in any activities you like
  • Quit smoking if you’re a smoker
  • Psychological counselling if you’re feeling depressed or emotionally affected for no reason
  • Drink lots of water
  • Use herbal supplements only after seeking advise from a knowledgeable healthcare provider

I feel understanding about this phase of a man’s life can make some good and healthier changes in the life of a man. I also feel if humans understand how fragile their body changes are and how it affect the mind and then relationships and social roles, then could be more kind to themselves and to other beings. I do feel more psychological and medical studies have to be conducted about Andropause and Menopause and people have to be made aware about these and how adopting healthier lifestyle changes and treatments can help them age gracefully.

I’s work

When “i” became silent, “I” started working

When “i” stopped wandering out, “I” showed wonders in heart

Not bothered if it would last long or work in background with the remaining life,

For now only “I” work here

Truth of Our Being

Pure and clean we are

Free and peaceful we are

Joyful and blissful we are

Always and always and always 😊

May we live in the truth of our being

Shining and spreading peace around

Reminding one another of this truth

Eternal Lamp

Woke up and found the eternal lamp


When it was lit is not known

It was there always shining gently, yet bright

“I” am that lamp and in this light, illusive plays are watched

Yesterdays are no more, future yet to come

This moment also pass like flutter of eyes

“I” the eternal lamp shine ever pure and bright

Desiderata, Strive to be Happy.

From my dear friend Kavita’s blog: sunshinysasite.wordpress.com..beautiful and meaningful words of hope and strength 😊 love this poem

Sunshiny SA Site

GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
