Rabindranath Tagore
“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action -
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.”
Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali

Allan Rufus

To win you have to make a move.
Knowing which move to make comes with IN-SIGHT
and knowledge, and by learning the lessons that are
acculated along the way.

We become each and every piece within the game called life!”
Allan Rufus, The Master's Sacred Knowledge

Donna Goddard
“Don’t feel bad about feeling bad. Don’t be frightened of feeling afraid. Don’t be angry about getting angry. There is no need to give up when we are feeling depressed. Nor should we be dismayed at the grief which often accompanies the outgrowing of anything which needs outgrowing. We can be glad that our soul is speaking to us and pushing us onwards. We frequently need to persevere with a period of inner turmoil before the dust can settle and be swept out the door.”
Donna Goddard, The Love of Devotion

So we may once again arrive,
To get a bird's eye view
Of what it means to be alive.
For there is beauty in returning,
Oh how wonderful, how strange,
To see that everything is different
But know it's only you who's changed.”
Erin Hanson

Bryant McGill

Amit Ray, Peace Bliss Beauty and Truth: Living with Positivity

Debatrayee Banerjee
“Because as long as Spring is there, the windows shall always walk open!

Each time a chapter closes by, my heart sinks in a whirlpool of emotions. Walking through a canvas of moments I smile with a bunch of happy tunes, often shunning my foolish heart for being too emotional too caring and too loving. But then a breeze clutches me in a smile of being alive, after all my heart feels and that spark of Life is all that Life is about.

I warmly wrap them up in my heart, tucking every moment, every character in pages of a mulberry leaf! And walk on to a path of unknown, in a journey yet to be found, in a page yet to be written.

I sit with my book and sip my heart's flow through my soul and with a smile embrace the morn of another beginning as the door closes a chapter only to find another.

I inhale an experience and all along open my heart to walk ahead in a journey to find another part of my journey, to give my soul's part to another voyage in Life's amazing maze where each turn makes me wonder in awe of Him, who walks beside us when Strength goes dimming and Courage goes faltering, holding our head up against a burst of Sunshine, to wrap us on our Stardust of Self.

I drink in the Sunshine, in the halo of a starry journey, some of it already lived while some yet to behold!

Because as long as Spring is there, the windows shall always walk open!”
Debatrayee Banerjee, A Whispering Leaf. . .

“Garden of the Dragons (Vol. Three, 'The 'Halla')
Epilogue (abridged

'Tis an immortaled foreverness we go to,
On that wind shorn and storm torrid plain,
Where hopes, dreams and life never dies -
As we encounter ourselves, and in our love
The victory do we gain.
Even so, there are more forgotten fables of
This eternaled lass,
She exists in our dreams forever, that shadow land
Where true hearts do last.
She is our story, the legends and myths as are we,
A tale to be told to the child within, who forevermore is free.
Rides she everlasting in our quietest stores,
And summons up the courage to live of what we
Have royally into been born.
Yea, once more she rules the Forgottenland,
She has learned to love, but forever
Alone, she stands.
But we should know, deep down inside,
Kari doth smiles for she is one of her kind
(For if nothing else, she appreciates her all,
Who she is and in this, knowing she will never fall).
Thus it is written perhaps with our dissent,
That those in Hell are of the unrepent.
A place of one's own choosing so it would seem,
Moment by moment we enter therein with our false dreams.
Yet those who are there know one truth above all,
The strength of iron hopelessness -
Of realities not false.
A prison to some, a Heaven to others,
Freedom reigns when earthen illusions are shattered asunder.
And Kari, does she know her secret? Surely she does,
That to love and to be oneself are blessings from Above.”
Douglas Laurent

“Valley of the Damned
Ch. One:
Dark Storm Rising

’Tis said giants grapple in the Earth so deep,
To contend for souls that they might keep.”

“What can a man tell you about something, who does not even know who he really is?”

“Tragedy is just a conspiracy created by soul
So that we may torture our body and kill it
Thus, freeing the soul”

“But then when am I not a fool?"
- as her heart took a leap, her perpetual over sensitivity shrieked out loud with a twinkle in her eye, the spark of naive honesty.

"But then again I would rather be a fool than befooled with the illusionary intelligence of them around."
- a smile caressed her as the voice of her soul clutched her with a thousand memories of days gone by, the leaf of fooled wisdom.”
Debatrayee Banerjee, A Whispering Leaf. . .

“Life will break you. Life will make you.
As we walk along this tide, sometimes our hearts get too entangled in the pit fire of wants, we don't even know what we seek in the mirage of our apparent want. We dress up in smiles everyday and every hour but never do we hold on to our laughters. Exceptions are there, of course.
But I have realised that most of us often fall into this wound's kiss and fly off to our cocoon of solitude, to stay more safe in the comfort of not getting hurt. But is it really safe, to not feel? Is not getting hurt a part of feeling or experiencing life too? Doesn't our own wall of Solitude break us too with a yearning of our heart that wants to connect, to love, to grow?
You have to love. You have to feel. That's the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart, after all you risked your soul to come onto this voyage in this spectrum of Unknown. You are here to be swallowed up, to save yourself with the poison of Love.
And when you find yourself broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, then burn and be born of its ashes!

And once in a while sit by an apple tree and as you watch the apples falling in heaps, remember how many of them are wasting their sweetness, just like that. Garner that Life, where you can tell yourself that you tasted as many as you could.

Love & Light, always
Life will break you. Life will make you.
