Your Love is Beyond Greatness

Millions of people say that you are not true, if you are not true then why billions of people praises you and still believes that you are real. Those scriptures may be thousands of years old and  many people doubt about your existence. But if you are not real then why do I feel your presence where ever I go?
I speak of my experience and what i believe in; this is my testimony for the faith I have.
You were born as an ordinary and simple man but you grew up to be the king of all kings; not in wealth or proved in battle field but the king who saved souls and rescued people from their sins, bondage and misery and above all died for us. You were looked down for helping the poor; you were punished for healing the blind and was crucified for showing people the truth, light and the way to heaven. 
Finally you proved them wrong because you have risen from death and it proved that you are inevitable. You resurrect to set us free; free from our sins, free from loneliness and alienation, free from pain and sufferings, free from hatred and jealousy and from all the evil. You didn't have any reason to die but you died for us. You resisted the torments and blood shed to open our eyes to the pure love you have given us. Everything you did was because you loved us beyond limits and any numbers.
I have felt your love and it is deeper than the seas and oceans. Nothing can be compared to your love, you are the god of grace and mercy. I pray for all the living souls on earth, to be able to feel your love. Only then, they shall know how great is your love for us.

Your Eyes~

I saw your picture,
My heart skipped a beat..
My eyes blinked,
And my thoughts wandered..

It's been a while,
Since I saw that smile..

Lost in a thought so complicated,
Still was starring at your beautiful face..

It was hard to take my eyes off of you,
Knew right then, it always was your eyes..

It was such breath taking,
Whenever you starred at me..


You look the same,
Just like on the day we first met..

A thought passed by saying;
     I will wait for that day again,
     The day when we first met..

Love for the rain drops..

A place so cold in winter; rains a lot in summer and leaches are quite common. Under the dzongkhag of Chukha there is this place called Tala, where only few hundred people lives. A pleasant summer came with a farewell to dry and cold winter. The houses were built alongside the road, which is literary termed as linear settlement. The houses were built out of bamboos and looked worse than a shack. Within that line of houses, there is an old shack which was totally worn out and a blue and long synthetic plastic was covered from the top of the house with a stones holding that piece of plastic. Dophu and Zangmo have been living there for 10years. They were going through a lot of struggle and lived hand to mouth with Dophu's monthly income. They lived their life sleeping on the floor and with two pairs of clothes to wear. Dophu’s clothes were totally worn out and most of the time, he wore his gray old gho. It was torn, at some part the stitches couldn't even work.

Dophu was a bus driver and was mostly away from his home. Zangmo took care of their old shack and their only child, who was born disabled (deaf and dumb). Life seemed pretty hard for the couple, at times Zangmo cried over their pathetic condition. Zangmo had a hope that her child would look after the poor parents when he grows up. “What could be disheartening than having the only child as a disable?” she thought. The poor couple couldn’t think of having another child as they won’t be able to afford it.
Karma was 6years old; due to his disability he was always inside the house as a caged bird. Dophu and Zangmo loved him without a sense of regret. They gave him almost all they could afford; karma was given a toy truck by his father from his saving. Karma always played around with his only toy car and disturbed his mother with a roaring voice. Karma loved rain; he would always go near the window to see the rain and its drop falling on the glass.
It was 6am in the morning and Dophu was on his way from Phuntsholing to Thimphu. The summer rain once again flooded the road and caused a landslide. Thus, the buses took other way which passes through Pasakha and Tala. It was raining heavily and the drops of the rain where bouncing back and forth on the road.

Zangmo woke up as usual, she complained to herself about the rain. Karma was still sleeping then she took out her big black umbrella and was off to fetch water. She said to herself “ga day bay na nga? Chu di kham losisi yep wong”. She was thinking about water being dirty due to the rainfall, though she passed hurriedly forgetting to latch the door from outside. Zangmo was all drenched as the rain leaked through the torn umbrella. She bent down to fetch water, she hold her worn out umbrella on her left hand and supporting on her knees on the damp ground, with her right hand she was filling the jerkin / bottle. The water was dirty, and then she thought she would get water from the tap which was few minutes away from the river. As she walked through the river side, she nearly slipped into the river and her tattered umbrella was taken by the river. She dirtied her clothes and she was frustrated. After few minutes, she reached near the tap, she waited on a queue.

Back at home, Karma woke up and was looking for his mother; suddenly he saw the door was open. He was delight and went out to play and was drenched all in rain. But his blissful look and his joyful eyes reflected how happy he was to be freed.

Dophu was going through a tough time; the never ending rain was falling on the front glass of
the bus, it disturbed his sight. As the bus passed through his house, he smiled to himself and 
thought about his wife and  his son. It was for few seconds, his eyes wandered but as  he 
focused back to the road that was when Karma got hit by the bus. Dophu was still and didn't
even blink his eyes. A fear ran through his heart, he stopped the bus and rushed outside in the
rain, and saw a child drenched in a blood. Dophu looked the rain washing away the blood and he
fell on his knee and stared at his son.

When Zangmo returned by fetching some water, she saw Dophu holding Karma. They were outside their house and were soaked to the skin from head to toe. Zangmo dropped the jerkin and as the water split out, tears of disgrace drowned from Zangmo’s eyes.

Little research on North Korea

North Korean children suffering from Malnutrition.  
North Korea ruled by Kim Jong Il, usually addressed as the “son of god” by the North Koreans. They worship Kim ll sung, the founder of North Korea, who is addressed as the “god”. Juche is not only the theory to rule the people but also the only religion in North Korea. The communist state ruled by present leader Kim Jong Il and heir to the throne, his son Kim Jong Un. It is compulsory for the citizens to hang portrait of these three people in their houses and to worship only them. 
The North Korean have personally bitter feelings for the Americans soldiers. Small children merrily sings a song of killing an American soldiers and pictures them begging for mercy. We can see that these people are filled with vengeful attitude. Most of the North Koreans are filled with poisonous thoughts and feelings against most of the countries around the world. What if love could rule over their hates? What if the children are given the times of their childhood? What if forgiveness was used in place of revenge? What if we lived as brothers and sisters in the name of the father above, who created us from his own image? So many questions but none are answered.
To cover up some of the history of North Korea: Korea was under Japanese rule for 35years (1910-1945). People were killed brutally and heaps of bloody conspiracies are found in the history. Thousands of stories are buried within the people’s grave. Some stories were unheard and some unbearable to be heard. After the war ended in August 1945, the future of Korea was still not decided. Thus, the Soviet Union (Russia) occupied the northern half of Korea, stopping at the 38 parallel as per the agreement with the United States. However, the capital Seoul was under Americans control. Forty years before, Japan and Russia had discussed sharing Korea along the same parallel because it divided the country in equal two half. May be the fate of Korea was to be finally divided into two halves. With distrust growing rapidly between the United States and Soviet Union, no agreement was reached on how to reconcile the two half of Korea. North Korea remained as the communist and South Korea as Democratic, these are some reasons which swept in a lot of hatred among the citizen of the two half of Korea. North Korea has bitter feelings toward U.S, this is because U.S backed up South Korea to fight against North Korea and also, U.S was involved in the division of Korea. There are many reasons from different people with their own experience and explanation.
With a study of the history, my mind is filled with my own answers too. The North Korea is being ruled by a dictator and the dictatorial power over the people has forced to grow a seed of hatred against the other half of Korea and the U.S in particular. They have become heartless, whose heads are filled with just one word “REVENGE”. Nor the country has a religion nor did they let anyone worship other gods, other than the leaders in North Korea. How can people compare gods with an ordinary man like us? The words like God and son of god are technically applied on the leaders, which is a real protest against the law of nature and directly to our creator too.
North Korea is one of the top prosecutors of Christianity in the world. It was said that a former Gugkabowibu police official who became disappointed and fled to China and then to South Korea, reported that North Korean officials are anxious to catch Christianity believers because they fear "Christianity will defeat Juche.” It was hard to read those stories of the people who worshiped Christ, they were crushed under the steamrollers and however, the death was only their destiny. Eighteen years old girl and sixty years old man, a father and a daughter was shot in front of the public because they worshiped Christ. Most of them who have fled to china go back to their country as evangelism after hearing the gospel of Christ. They were also killed brutally and some were starved to death in the far away concentration camp. For how long they will shed the bloods of those innocents? We humans have let the devils to dwell in our minds and letting ourselves astray from god’s will. His plan for us is something big and great beyond our imagination, which cannot be stopped by anything. Death is the same destination we all humans share in common. Can those people, who have stained their hands from the bloods of innocents will be able to defend themselves before god after death? What reasons they will give for treating innocent people brutally? All that is left is to feel, the power of repentance by forgiving one another and creating a bigger room for love. We are born of God’s will and shall everyone be saved in his name.
“No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him: he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.” - 1John: 3: 10

Eternal Sleep

The same white walls, with long white board, facing towards us. Everything is same; the sun was bright, the mountains are still green and the roofs are still blue. This is what I see, through the big window from my class. But all that linger in my mind is the blue vast sky and those blue roof, which covers all the buildings in my college. Why are they so blue? Or is it my heart that seems so blue, which is being covered with unknown grief? May be the only difference is, I have started looking at things differently. It's strange how your perception changes just in a second. The same person standing in front of us almost everyday, looks so sad. Or is it my heart that is hurt? My fist like heart had gained few more weight and it sure feels heavy.

There is so much pain and sufferings outside my self created world and I ask myself if I could take this burden my whole life. Our life seems like a biggest secret, that god is not willing to let us know. May be there is a right time for everything and I hope my life wont be a big joke. I have always felt that our life is something more than what we have thought about or it might be something bigger than anyone could have thought about. Humans are filled with flaws, may be that is the reason why we are far from the truth. The truth about our life.
As Auden states in one of his poem "Not universal love but to be loved alone." How realistically it explains, that people wants to be loved but do not care enough to love others. Selfish and self centered would describe those people at the best. May be they are no different than what we are, after all we belong to same human kind.
I have known that the feelings never remain same and it is expected to change sooner or later. And so is the perception, which keeps on fluctuating. We can see how bad we humans are being cursed and still wanting to live in this world by forcefully blindfolding our own eyes. World is being filled with so much disgrace and grief because of our ignorance. And this planet is the only shelter that i have till my eyes go through the eternal sleep.
