Eternal Being


“Maybe this was what love meant after all: sacrifice and selflessness. It did not mean hearts and flowers and a happy ending, but the knowledge that another’s well-being is more important than one’s own” – Melissa de la Cruz


There are some people who come and go but are never forgotten. They become an indispensable part of one’s self-existence. They become an integral part of the mind, body and the soul. They become the Eternal Being. They share a part in our destinies.


‘Through the Darkness, With Love’ wouldn’t have been possible without the dynamic admiration and applause of my newly found friends but above all, the old friends and admirers:

“Hundreds of deepest emotions captured beautifully in one poem that brings back the very well-known feeling of being insanely in love, ‘being in point of no return’, ‘out of control & head over heel’ – I wish all people in this world spoke about love the way you do, this world would be a better place then. Thank you for sharing this poem with us.”

“Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul. Magnifique!”.

“Sandeep, where did this talent come from, I’d not seen it. It exposes a great insight into you, which I can now appreciate. You must share some of your poetry”















Life is an ongoing process of opening and elevating our mind, body, and spirit. The real growth brings about the necessary changes, as destined. Never force yourself to have space in anyone’s life. If anyone really knows your worth, it will make a space for you and step outside of its comfort zone. Building relationship is not simple; and, sustaining them is much more strenuous, whether it be conditional or unconditional. Life, through unconditional love, is an amazing adventure that explores the very core of our being and lights up our path with joy and gratification.

The core essence of ‘Through the Darkness, With Love’ lies within the realms of an unconditional eternal love – something that comes once in a lifetime. If you want such a love to go on forever, you treat it in an exceptional way. You shield it and secure it. You never ill-treat it. You don’t make it normal or common. In the event that it ever moves toward losing its brilliance, you affectionately clean it until the point that it shines like new. It has to end up noticeably extraordinary in light of the fact that you want it to be remarkable and sensational, forever. You want it to flourish and become more wonderful and valuable as you mature.

‘Unconditional Eternal Love’ was the foundation for ‘Through the Darkness, With Love’, which was effectively communicated to the SOUL for 17 years. Thereafter, it got lost in the midst of the crowd.

‘Unconditional Eternal Love’ is a love that can be only felt by a heart and soul – no physical relationship can ever produce such profound results. We can only learn to love love by loving unconditionally.

Life in a Jar

Mayonnaise Jar [Received this piece decades ago]

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar……..and the beer. A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar were full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar were full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar were full. The students responded with a unanimous yes. The professor then produced two cans of beer from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

“Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things — your family, your children, your health, your friends, your favorite passions — things that if everything else were lost, and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else–the small stuff.

If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of beers.”

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Significance of Thursday

India is a beautiful country with its diversified culture(s) and religion(s), languages, dialects, scientific and spiritual enlightenment, astrology, numerology, palmistry et al. “We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made” – Albert Einstein

In astrology, a natal chart is a stylized map of the universe with the “native” (the individual or subject or anything Created or Built to be studied) at the center. It is calculated for the exact time and location of the native’s birth for the purposes of gaining insight into the native’s personality and potential. Commonly used alternative names for the natal chart include birth chart, horoscope, natus, nativity, radix, geniture and genethliac chart, among others. The chart shows the positions of the sun, moon, planets, and potentially other celestial objects, all referred to as the native’s “planets,” within the frames of references defined by the astrological signs and houses. While taking inspiration from the charts, I still chart my own destiny.

The accurate birth time (generally agreed upon as the first breath or intake of air) and location are deemed necessary by astrologers for the calculation of the exact degree of the signs that are rising, setting, culminating up, and culminating down, known respectively the ascendant (or “rising sign”), descendant, medium coeli (or “midheaven”), and imum coeli (or “lower midheaven”). These degrees, also known as the angles, are essential for mapping the positions of the native’s twelve houses. One can find inspiration and motivation from numerology and astrology but the determination is the key component.

To sum it up, imagination alone isn’t enough; inspiration, admiration, motivation, good-will, righteousness, enthusiasm, appreciation and trust are needed to beef up the Creativity.

Therefore, someone can have a Sun sign Leo but a Moon sign Sagittarius. Since Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, Thursday becomes the important day of the week. There are other important elements related to preceding. Luck and good fortune are associated with Jupiter for good reason. It is considered to be one of the most benefic planets in astrology.

Jupiter’s celestial brilliance portrays vitality, power, strength, and freedom of will. The laurel crown symbolizes a radiance of creative understanding; the sceptre draws divine inspiration down to earth.

Indeed some Thursday’s are a pure Blessing; some Thursday’s are a Blessing in disguise; and, some Thursday’s are simply governed by Murphy’s Law (from stem to stern) — “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly”, respectively.

Time and again, I observed that starting a project on Thursday is absolutely fantastic unless, of course, Murphy’s Law is in motion. Every week I know something good (no matter how insignificant) will happen on Thursday. Nevertheless, a positive outlook towards life is the key element, no matter what day of the week it is.

In closing, “India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend and the great grand mother of tradition” – Mark Twain

Significance of 11

“Arithmetic is numbers you squeeze from your head to your hand to your pencil to your paper till you get the answer.” – Carl Sandburg

“Master number 11 brings higher intuition and spiritual insight, supernatural abilities, increased sensitivity, as well as empathy and natural intelligence. The number eleven is a sign of enormous power – both mental and physical. In addition, this is the first master number from a total of three (11, 22 and 33). This number is the root of all other master numbers. The number is considered to be an old soul, not only because of its unique abilities, extreme ability to empathize and understand and respect others, but the main reason is very mature thinking.”

“Eleven is the number of inspiration and enlightenment. Imagine a candle (symbol of light). People with Master Number 11 have a mission to help others and aim to show the bright side of life. The Master number 11 is composed of two candles; the first candle is a holder of this master number, and the second candle is the person who receives the light. People on this path have huge dreams that may seem unattainable. Their master number opens up access to many ideas and concepts. They should learn more patience, serenity and properly evaluate their emotions and vibrations, simply because emotions and vibrations create our reality.”

“They are the holders of light, joy, kindness, and friendship. They have a great ability to empathize, but on the other hand, they are also very vulnerable. All of this causes their high sensitivity. Individuals with the Master Number 11 are excellent to work with a pendulum; they have prophetic abilities, dreams, and can envisage early misfortunes or accidents. Never underestimate their intuition and inner voices. This person may be a prophet or healer and possesses the innate ability of nonverbal communication (telepathy). They have a lot of spiritual experiences.  Due to their high sensitivity, responsiveness, and power, individuals with this number may be presidents, politicians, managers, artists, writers or other high-ranking persons.”

“The high sensitivity (hypersensitivity) and workaholism – they spend more time working than relaxing. Other negative aspects include the lack of time for their own needs, insomnia, and too much openness. These individuals also have a tendency to take all the responsibility on their own shoulders. In some cases, the solitude and hypersensitivity may contribute to suicidal tendencies. They have an increased propensity for habits like cigarettes, alcohol, and even soft drugs.”

“With 11, you are able to calmly deal with complex situations – you have general knowledge and know a little about everything. It’s like having a finger in every pie. Your greatest advantages are respect, empathy, understanding others and their problems, adaptability, steadiness, sense of order and immense ability to see others more deeply. Another feature is enormous creativity. Your life is very varied – you have a great need to be original and stand out from the crowd. Many people perceive you as a great source of inspiration. And they have reason to do so.”

“Master Number 11 love and seek freedom. They are very hardworking and able to work overtime only for success and internal satisfaction. They do everything possible to make both themselves and the people around them feel good. They are great observers, love nature, animals, as well as modern technology, or civil transport – namely aircraft, which gives them a sense of freedom and independence. They have no problem with shutting off their brain for a while. They believe in goodness and try to see things from different perspectives.”

Down memory lane – the creative writing or the so-called Poetic aptitude came to light in a building with a number 155 (or 1+5+5=11). The address was 155 East 42nd Street in New York City. It was the birth of an unparalleled and inseparable bond between Source of Ultimate Light (the woman) and Eternal Light (the man), with tonnes of love. The woman’s name was broken down into 3 syllables and using the Sanskrit language, her name was defined as a Source of Light while the author’s name in Sanskrit means Eternal Light. It was a fountain yielding life and happiness into the creative art (Through the Darkness, With Love). And, above all, it is still very much alive.

As one of the two master numbers, 11 yields understanding and knowledge beyond the grasp of others. It represents vision; balance; invention; refinement; fulfillment; higher ideals; a balance of work and play; balanced emotion, thought and spirit. Those who recognize the spiritual meaning of number 11 in their lives are quite sensitive to vibrational frequencies. Elevens appearing on consistent bases is indicative of a reflective, thoughtful and intuitive soul.
