I am celebrating the lives of all Father’s…on Earth.. and in Spirit… especially my own dear Father..
John Burgess Urquhart, a good man…a good Father.. was a manager in Rolls Royce Aerospace.
During periods of time in the early sixties he was seconded to the Indian Air Force.
He inspired in me a love of India.. which grows more profound with the passing years.
Mother India touches the essence of my soul..for which I shall be eternally grateful.
The Bhagavad Gita, The Mahabharata, The Upanishads, Ayurveda, The Ancient Teaching of Yoga…so many, wonderful books, influences… so many inspiring people….
..Mahatma Gandhi, being a significant source of authentic power, in how to conduct your life…to inspire… and be inspired by others.
India’s… Architecture, Culture, Music, Fashion, Cuisine….
..all touch my soul…and my soul smiles in gratitude:)
I have loved from afar…. .I vision for myself…one day ..of having the joy of visiting:)
A votive offering to…
“My soul embraces thy oneness
thy mystery touches and intrigues me
thy vastness sings to my heart
stretching my imagination
all creativity is divinely stirred
from this place of wonder
taking me ever nearer
to sensing thy essence
scenting thy divine aroma
a bitter /sweet infusion enfolds me
irradiating me with warmth
sending me to divine heights
from this coin of vantage
all life I do espy
such a privilege to be so held
by one so loved.
India Mother India
How sweet how resonant she sounds
India India India
reverberates through my soul
capturing my heart with
myriad tales of daring do
stirring my youthful imagination
giving such magical boyhood memories
beginning a life long love affair
pursued energetically from afar
perfect in its purity
aspirational in its depth
teaching ever teaching me
through the alchemy of her ways
India: An Eternal Love
ever will I love her
one day I will visit
if it be Gods wish” Au
May you too, share with us, the joys of places that inspire you:)
