I am still unprepared for the world

I was unprepared for the elephant pineapple incident. It didn’t factor in, even in my wildest imagination. Just did not. I moved into a new place this week. I was unprepared for the kindness of strangers. Random shop keepers going out of their way to make tea for me. Society guards being helpful, in spite…

What’s your definition of a perfect world?

In a perfect world, things would happen to my liking, to my tastes and to my sensibilities. And I call it perfect because I understand that they are not likely to happen that way. So here’s what I will settle for. Books to read. Concepts and abstractions to wonder about. Notebooks to jot down my…

Does spiritual awareness make you more of yourself?
