Just a reminder of my recent visit in Delhi this past October

India 2008-2015

An oasis of serenity, tranquility and beauty in the midst of the eternal hassle, noise and chaos that is Delhi.

The impressive architecture, the intricate designs and carved works on the structure walls and pillars….all are quite amazing

I visited here last October with my friends, and this is also a great time of year to tour Delhi as the weather is quite pleasant.

No matter where you stand in the compound, you can feel the power and energy radiating from this impressive architectural feat.

Qutab Minar is a soaring, 73 m-high tower of victory, built in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom. The tower has five distinct storeys, each marked by a projecting balcony and tapers from a 15 m diameter at the base to just 2.5 m at the top.

Loving an Illusion

Loving an Illusion.jpg

I loved an illusion which I very cleverly created and sustained for 2 1/2 years. I finally was blessedly jolted into reality, and once the illusion was shattered, there was nothing left to love.

It was surprising and confusing at first, but definitely not painful. I loved deeply and truly with my whole heart, my whole body , my whole spirit, and it was glorious.

I learned important lessons about myself and relationships which will serve me well in the future, and I will be eternally grateful for them. But once the lessons were successfully learned, there was no longer a need for the illusion, and it dissipated before my very eyes.

I will never be the same for having gone through this beautiful experience and am definitely a better person for it-more open, capable of loving fully and receiving love fully, without Fear.

I am supremely and eternally grateful for these gifts

A True Blessing

TRUE LOVE.jpeg
True Love – Loving fully and without fear, will never leave you empty, in pain and broken, but enriched and rewarded. It is a blessing from above which is just that-a blessing!
Even when the person must leave your life for some reason, the blessings he brought into your life while you were together, remain. Your heart is not broken beyond repair…It is simply confused.
Once the confusion clears-in its own time-your heart will remain as strong and open to receive new love as it was before. And once it is ready, new love will easily find its way to you, and into your heart.

With Love Light and JOY

Magical, Mystical, Desert Lanscapes
Miracles and Majesty of Creation

I recently spent two days in the South Judean Desert with my entire family, children and grandchildren…close to 30 adults and children ranging in age from 1 1/2 years to 21 years.

It was a beautiful and blessed family event celebrating the Bar Mitzva of one of my grandsons.  It was in itself an emotionally charged two days filled with much joy and laughter and I am grateful as always for the amazing blessings continually sent my way.

 

20140509_110804To see so many people of all ages enjoying each others company brought tears of joy to my eyes more than once over the two days.

A family like this is not to be taken for granted and I sometimes find myself at a loss for words to express my gratitude to God.

Punjabi Kadhi and Methi Pakora with Rice

Nothing can help get past the feelings of homesickness for a place, or a person, better than a good home cooked meal which brings back fond memories of that place or person.

So today, missing India more than usual, I decided to put together this lovely dish. It was the first time I’ve ever made it and it came out truly delicious.
I used the link at the end of the post as the basis for the dish after checking out several recipes online.
