A Quest


Sometimes our inner self responds to our queries,
the ones we have and the ones of which we are wary.
It explains what it is to be who we are,
deep like an ocean or as innocent as a flower.
The inner self has a soul of its own,
Flowing through times, while holding on to our roots for sure,
Be it a sacred journey, or an unfamiliar path of life,
the self responds to all with a distinct voice,
a voice that we fall short of understanding,
the voice that defines who we are,
our real demeanor,
the veiled identity.

Everything will be a wonder then.
Shift from "Err.. Nothing extra ordinary" to "Ah..! Extraordinary" even when we do not know how it happens!!

Very meaningful indeed! We really never get to know our own real self.

This is so true, if we can just listen to our inner self, most of our problems will be solved and we will be at peace. Specially when we are in a dilemma whether to listen to our heart or to our brain, I believe it is the inner self that takes control and shows us the right path.

And about your writing, your words are so beautiful that i have lost mine :-)
