Free Music

I just added a FREE DOWNLOAD to my website. Please enjoy and feel free to share!

It is a live version of a song that will be on my new album: "Rakhe Rakhanhaar"

It features my friends Sat Darshan Singh Khalsa on tabla, and Bahadurpreet Kaur on violin.

Blessings,

Graceful Language

I was telling my husband about a comment someone said that upset me today.

He told me not to take it personally. He said he knew the person and they probably didn't realize I would take offense to their sarcasm.

He said not everyone uses graceful language.

This really struck me.

I thought about all the people I had in my life who do use graceful language.

I thought about how thankful I was for the people who choose their words thoughtfully. I thought about all the people I knew whose words never haunted me after we spoke. I thought about all the people whose careful choice of words ten to echo lovingly in my head even after our conversation is over.

Then I thought... am I one of those people?

I realized that while I admire and seek after people who used their words elegantly, I might not always do the same.

I don't think I'm ever purposefully rude or mean. But I could definitely improve in my verbal skills.

I'm really thankful for this person whose words upset me today.

It's amazing how we can hold up mirrors for each other.


Love,
Sirgun

Cup on the Table

I am a cup on the table
I know not when the water will come

The more I think of the water
the further away it has run

The more I think of the future
the less it seems I can will it

I am a cup on the table
waiting for liquid to fill it


I may end up losing my patience
But I will not forget why I'm here

What I require is water
I will not be filled with fear

Some substitute fillers may offer
but nothing else will I approve

I am a cup on the table
waiting patiently for you

I met Genevieve first as a client, then as a teacher, and now as a guest...  Cute example of the malleable roles we take on for one another,...
