How do i love thee

I read this poems and felt a depth in it. And it is a wonderful reason to share it with my friends here:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Pondering- Why I have created this blog?

I do not know exactly the reason behind creating this blog. At present there is not much that I want to say. Though I need a place and a way to express myself and infinite emotions of high and low tides taking place inside me. I have been hearing from people about marking their space on internet by creating blogs. I thought of creating it too to flaunt my social wisdom.
It is pretty cool to have a space that is purely mine, a diary that can never be misplaced, where I can collect and write anything I want. And get feedback too in form of comments. Hearing the word comment right now seems weird- as in real world we are used to compliments. Though good or bad response will ensure that I am being heard. May be with some good discussions we will end up in realizing or knowing something meaningful that can make a difference (hope for good) to somebody.
If that doesn't happen, who cares! At the end of the day it is making me indulge in something new.

Its a diary for me, and its a message or my beliefs for you. There are so many issues, that need to be paid heed to. And there are so many things that can make better me and better you..
Oh my gosh! This all is rhyming!! I like it-and you have to love it too!! :D
Signing off with this note- c ya soon until something nice strikes my head, or shakes my soul...
Happy Blogging! ;)

Rituals- Why do I follow them?

No one can pull me out of my roots,
I am a plant that dies without its soil, without its roots..

I follow values and traditions not just blindly, but for a reason. I dig out the causes to understand why they became rituals for people. When I can't find a reason, my heart compels me to respect the sentiments of elders. To make themselves proud and happy.

On the other hand there are some I don't follow at all, I act as a rebel. That is because sometimes these rituals give us a panic attack, enter our comfort zone and kill our pride. We feel and breathe too.

Values are our basic identity and individuality that separate us and our thoughts from others, providing a system of living. They set the standards and priorities in the life of a person. Though at times traditions and rituals bind our wings while other times they are the way of celebrating our and our tribe's existence on earth.

This is my first attempt at blogging***
