Book review – Far Away Friends

Far Away Friends

Written By Baljit Ghuman.

Books cast a mystic spell over me that is hard to explain at times. For me buying a book, reading a book even holding a book in my hands drifts me away for few minutes and serves to be very relaxing.

I recently got a beautiful book on poetry called Far Away Friends written by Baljit Ghuman. As always I like to hold the book in my hands and feel the cover, the pages, the texture, the print, the weight. I must say I was thrilled to hold this book in my hands. What caught my eyes and attention was the title “Far Away Friends” printed on red background with white font. After the title there is a total white space followed by the author’s name again on the red background with white font. For some of us, this would be just a matter of picking up a simple design but for me it held more meaning than just a design layout. It gave me a hint of some one remembering their friends, memories associated with them from the realm of their thoughts, searching in the deep corners of their brain thus the white space signified ¬†the quietness and stillness to get those memories out to share with the world.

The cover was inspiring enough for me to read the book, so I made a cup of tea this time not coffee and started to read it on my comfy couch. ūüôā I must say I was right about my predictions earlier. Each and every poem in the book was very relate-able with one’s life personal experience. What inspired me to keep on reading without lifting my mug of tea, was the layout of the poem on each page. The poems, thoughts and words are organized in a unique but very interesting, searchable way I must say, that tempts the reader to keep reading, searching, and relating to themselves. After some poems, there is a white page that I say is added for a reason – to self reflect, to remember, to take a break, to breathe and then to move on.

I thought of adding my personal favorite poem and inspiring words but I couldn’t narrow it down to just one poem or saying. The whole book and all the words are inspiring thus eliminating the need to pin point to just one personal favorite.

I can strongly recommend this beautiful, enlightening, inspiring collection of poetry around friendship, love, loss, freedom, wisdom, nature, divine light to my friends and followers and I can certainly see myself going back to this book for inspirational thoughts, motivation and courage later in coming years.

For all my followers who are also interested in exploring this book. It can be found easily at Amazon.

Book review РThe Supreme Gift by Paulo Coelho. 

Browsing through the collection of my Kindle books, I decided to read a book called “The Supreme Gift” by Paulo Coelho.¬†This time unlike other times, I decided to start the book without reading its excerpt. After finishing the book, I must say it left me wondering about various aspects of life and true essence of the definition of love. The author has taken a unique yet beautiful approach in explaining the meaning of life and love to many of those who are still in search of this answer.

The Supreme Gift, by Coelho is a short book that focuses on Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, a passage from the Bible. Adapted from the original work of Henry Drummond, Coelho has narrated about love¬†by sharing his own perspective¬†thus embarking inspiration and pouring wisdom into his readers. The book talks about 9 ingredients of love which are summarized below , in the form of a sermon delivered by a young Scottish preacher. The 9 ingredients of love according to Drummond are:

1- Patience
2- Kindness
3- Generosity
4- Humility
5- Courtesy
6- Unselfishness
7- Good Temper
8- Guilelessness
9- Sincerity

After reading the book on my Kindle, I will definitely invest in buying a paper copy of this book to refer back to it in the upcoming days when I am faced with a quest to find the purpose of life. This book definitely gets 5 stars from me.

Love

In a soft, dim candle light,

Her skin glowed like twinkling stars,

With sparkles in her eyes,

and firmness in her touch,

She loved him with all her heart.

Fearless, powerful and with all her passion,

She held herself close to him,

Emerged herself in the rhythm of his love,

and cherished him all night with all she got.

The truth of darkness

One dark night I drifted away in woods.
Searching for answers to many questions
I believe one should.

Then I came inside a dark tunnel,
With darkness everywhere and no where to go.

I heard a voice in there from somewhere.
I asked the voice to help me where to go.

The voice then said to me,
Follow your heart as darkness is just an illusion.

Have hope as hope shreds the fear away.
Speak the truth as truth casts courage.

Above all never give up trying,
As great rewards always come in due time.
These are the ultimate answers of all the questions that nature holds.

In the silence of night

 

The firmness of your arms,
The tightness of your grip,
The spark in your eyes,
The smile rustling from corner of your lips,
The mesmerizing scent of your cologne,
The warmth of your body,
The tangling of your legs,
The eccentric style of your kisses,
The tracing of your fingers,
The depth of your breath,
all ignites a spark of love in me
bringing me more closer to you
that I merge my soul into one being.
