I’ve already looked at the empty night skies,
At least a 100 times by now…
O Dear moon mine,
Where are you still lost?
Are you hiding behind the clouds,
Or just off-schedule, I wonder!
Come soon, O beloved moon mine,
I have been missing you, more than you know…
Today, Indians worldwide celebrate the festival of Karva Chauth – where females fast the entire day without food or water for the health, happiness, long life and well being of their spouse/future husband. The fast is broken in the evening after prayers and sighting of the moon.
I had also observed a fast today for my Mr. Future Husband (I know it may sound overly silly, but isn’t life all about listening to your heart? 😉 ). In the evening, although it had turned dark since 6 PM, the moon was sighted only by 9:15 PM. At around 6:30 I decided I needed to head out for a walk and took a long extended walk by the sea, went to the temple, prayed, grabbed some ‘kheer’ served as prashad, walked a bit more by the sea, went for my meditation class and walked back home; all of it while trying to spot the moon every 10 seconds 😛 Finally, after I came home by 9 the moon was sighted and I said my prayers for the health, happiness, and wellbeing of Mr. Future Husband and also so that he can find his way to me soon and I get to recognize him 🙂
This reminds me of one of my most favorite posts – Jode Rehjo Raaj. I don’t seek to find the perfect love. I seek to be the perfect love for my soul-mate.
….and while every one would be wondering how lucky the girl is to have such a loving and supportive husband, I wish I do things like what the husband did for his wife, for my future spouse and fill his life with love and light ❤
All of us deserve love that loves us for our goodness, is proud of us, makes us a better version of our own selves and is happy for our success.
