Ganesh Chaturthi tomorrow, hopefully a time of contemplation, of thanksgiving. In a year of chequered squares, dark blacks and a few sunny yellows, much to be thankful for. for a guiding presence, for clarity and a soul guide, and silly me, I didn’t think I had one left. For greens, for the jumble of foliage. For hot. For cold. For nerves, yes, that too and how often and how intensely one takes that chilling next step, and how this redefined the meaning of backbone.For patience and space, for forbearance. for delight in tiny triumphs that only I can see. For intuition, of sorts, for grace in being humbled.for being guided to wisdom and serenity. “We meet the same people over and over again” says the line from the Bhagvad.Gita, I draw solace. For your presence in my darkest hour, and momentary triumphs, in a year of chequered squares and much growing up, gratitude.

I am not sure in what context you meant "We meet the same people over & over"...my recent visit to the Temple Square in SLC, UT....and one thing I liked about the Mormon belief....you have the same family for every birth....so you should try to make those ties stronger, better by investing more time/ energy into it...so that you will have a better experience in the next birth. Ensuring us to do good in this birth for the next birth is a concept even we have and I find that very interesting.
