It seems silly even to think that today is Ahaan’s “birth”day. What is a birth or death anniversary? Seems so insignificant when you consider a soul’s journey through lifetime upon lifetime. So many days of “birth”. So many days of “death”. And still the soul lives on forever – no birth, no death. So why should life not be a celebration of the soul’s being? Why should “death” rob us of the joy of “is”? It shouldn’t & it doesn’t.
Every day is a celebration of Ahaan’s “life” & everything he taught us. Every day is a celebration of our own existence. Thankful that we have friends like all of you. Thankful that we are getting the opportunity to see so many truths. To experience so many “miracles” – till we’ve reached a point where we don’t consider a “miracle” as something out of the ordinary. It is the ordinary. Only, we don’t let it come through because our minds are shut. Our thinking closed to the openness & giving nature of our universe. Closed to our own divinity. To our own Godliness. It’s time to unshackle our souls. Let our souls float, fly, glide, soar, swoop – do as they please. Our soul – that part of us which is pure existence. Let it revel in all its glory – free of the burden of our mind which drags it down with “don’ts” & “can’ts” & all kinds of negativity. This life is given to us to learn, experience, live, love & laugh. Do a lot of this & your soul will bask in joy & happiness & sunshine. Forever smiling.
Today, we know Ahaan is right here with us. In our midst. In a way more beautiful than his mere physical presence. His soul, his spirit is entwined with ours. In true oneness. We continue to marvel at the way he led his life. The wisdom & faith he showed. Hopefully, we old fogeys (as he called us), will learn something from him. Hopefully some of his traits have rubbed off on us – like a reverse hereditary process. Thank you Ahaan. We could say Happy Birthday – but instead we’ll say ROCK ON!!! We love you, but you already know that…
This is an old post thanking Ahaan for being Ahaan…
you taught us…
you taught us.
how to love.
how to let love flow.
to all around.
how to light up the darkest mood.
with a delightful smile.
full of warmth.
you taught us.
how to forgive.
no matter how grave the circumstance.
to let someone else also sleep.
the sleep of a child.
knowing he is forgiven.
you taught us how to laugh.
even when the world turned nasty.
because joy resides within.
because your heart is pure.
because God laughs with you.
you taught us how to live.
for the moment.
because it never comes by again.
it may be your last.
to the maximum.
you taught us how to give.
without wanting in return.
even your last piece of chocolate.
just for the sheer joy of giving.
to see happiness.
on another’s face.
knowing you are blessed by God.
in his heart.
because you learnt how to give.
you taught us how to be alive.
even in your going.
with a smile on your face.
as your body lay.
we knew what you were saying.
through even this.
that is living.
so we did.
we love you.
thank you .
for being in our lives.
in such a beautiful way.
we will be…
Freedom, inner freedom.
All this and much more is what I feel, when you, the “old fogey” (excellent !!!) writes down his words.
So, let’s all rock on !!!
Somehow this song popped up in my mind… So I share it !
Magic is all around, sparkles are everywhere we go… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mG_eIDMOvfM
So much love, always,
some get called “cool chick”, some “old fogeys” – go figure!!!
it’s all love, E. all love…
lots of love always…
What a special day for such a special being, but as you say, all days with Ahaan are special, as they should be. I send you love and hugs to help you through any ‘missing moments’ you may encounter when thinking of Ahaan…As I first said to you when I found your site, your strength impresses me greatly. I admire your conviction to stay positive. Blessings to all four of you and oh yes, Happy Birthday Ahaan ! Love….VK
You know you are such a special family.. and Ahaan is so very special and that love you share is even more so, because you understand there is No Death, only Life.. For we are eternal Beings .. Ahaan brings so much joy and teaches still all who would listen the depth of that love.
I celebrate the day of his Birth into this realm as he chose you as his family, and I celebrate his gift of life .. As I celebrate his departing, for those he left in the higher realms also rejoiced at his return, knowing his mission was done here, and yet it is only just beginning.. as his words reach out to all who will listen..
I am so happy I didn’t miss this post Anil, as I am forever in catch up mode.. But I thank Ahaan, and yourselves for sharing and teaching us all.. Love and Blessings ~Sue
Awesome post Anil, as we grow in our spiritual walk we easily come to the place where we share our love every minute of everyday always to lift up another…thanks for the message and beauty of your post!
