A friend shared an interesting article yesterday. It’s an op-ed by David Brooks which was published in the New York Times on Apr 11, 2015. The article is titled The Moral Bucket List. I could relate to it so much as I have been blessed with people in my life who radiate an inner light. They are always there, ready to reach out, when you need them the most. They are also open and vulnerable, which makes them human and someone who is not afraid to ask for help when they need it. If you have such a person in your life, let them know. Even better, become that someone for yourself and others. Peace!

“When you start paying attention to your thoughts you awaken your higher self. Start tuning into your inner dialogue, listening to your heart, and noticing what’s in your gut. In this world of non-stop stimulation, where we are so rarely alone with our thoughts, doing this seems radical. But I guarantee that you’ll discover amazing new things.”

Mel Robbins

I had heard/read about Sheryl Sandberg‘s book ‘Lean In – Women, Work, and the Will to Lead‘ before I saw it at the bookshop.Sandberg is the Chief Operating Officer at Facebook. I thought for a while before I bought it. Started reading it a few days ago. After re-reading The Fifth Mountain, and The Alchemist, and reading Biz Stone’s ‘Things a Little Bird Told Me – Confessions of a Creative Mind’, I did find it difficult (initially) to go back to a book about gender issues. Having a Board Meeting this week didn’t help either. However, slowly and gradually, I have picked up pace and am enjoying reading Sheryl’s book. Still on the second chapter but can already understand and relate to the issues identified by Sheryl. More to come later.

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain — and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
A luminary clock against the sky

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.

– Robert Frost, “Acquainted with the Night”

Oh how much I’d like to roam around in the streets at night, without any concern or fear. When the city is sleeping and the night is awake. Peace, tranquility, and silence. Time for introspection, time to be alive, time to ‘be‘.
