Tell Me Something About Krishna...

Over a year ago, I received a random text message from my friend Balaram:

"Tell me something about Krishna." 

I was taken aback. How often do I get asked that kind of question?? I wanted to just write back, "Um, He's God." But I took some time to deeply reflect, and then I sent him back a meditation.

Over the past year, Balaram and I have taken turns in writing the random text message: Tell me something about Krishna. Usually Balaram will ask me, and it always catches me off guard. Sometimes we share something silly, sometimes something profound.

Some time ago, I asked Balaram to tell me something about Krishna. Several weeks later, he finally responded.

"Krishna is in the rare moments when I truly connect with a person who is also in the pursuit of simultaneously living and understanding what it means to be alive.

That's one thing I can say about Krishna."

I can't help but feel that if you, dear reader, are in the pursuit of living and understanding what it means to be alive, then Krishna is alive and present in this very moment, as you read the words off this screen. I am honored to be in your association. Thank you.

It's your turn: tell me something about Krishna. Or better yet: tell the world something about Krishna.

Krsna is Amazing!!! Everything around us is a miracle or a perfect magic. Only Krsna can perform such magic EVERY moment (It is a perfect MAGIC). I feel we all see the MAGIC but we don't see...Krsna is Amazing!!!

Krishna knows exactly how to test you, and when. He also knows when to cut you slack, and let you recover. :)

One's ability to feel from the 'Heart' and simultaneously being aware of the feeling, is Krishna.

Krishna never sees our mistakes or perceived failures. But He does see every tiny endeavour we make toward Him.

To write is to dare the soul. So write.
