I held onto nothing
Freedom is with you
When you’re with me, I’m never alone
Hold my hand, and take me home.
My breath is yours
Together beyond lores
No promises unkept, rejections atone
Hold my hand, just take me home.
I waited lifetimes
I’ve ran towards you
When you’re mine, I need no throne
Hold my hand, please take me home.
Love you in the form
We romance in the formless
The eternal rhythm in the dome
Hold my hand, you are my home.
Across the grassy knoll he stood
The setting sun with tears he looked
Something so profound she took
To break and deny what she shouldn’t.
Driven mad and in grief
His solitude wouldn’t last so brief
Her illusion fair, she found the green
Guising sympathy the others weaned.
Forced to leave what he loved the most
In secret she slept, she raised her toast
Wisdom dawned with a sigh
No sacrifice unbearable, his love wasn’t a lie.
Every now and then I keep an eye open for things that would make even someone averse to technology, sit back, take notice and discuss that topic. This post is a short one on the Microsoft-LinkedIn acquisition. Short not because Jeff Weiner already did his bit and explained to his employees, but because this whopping 26Billion$ this deal has some interesting facets which are still unexplainable.
The Bad Part – Economics
I don’t want to bring in the Skype or Nokia acquisition. Simply because LinkedIn is an entirely different ballgame. Neither do I want to compare it financially to the Facebook – Whatsapp deal, because Facebook got Whatsapp cheap! Whatsapp had one thing Facebook was missing critically – phone numbers.
It’s almost as far back as memory goes, I’ve wanted to blog about spirituality. For some reason I never did. Today millions of people are celebrating Gurudev‘s 60th Birthday and amidst the celebration he will continue smiling, working tirelessly and being there for everyone 100% – reminding us that celebration happens every moment, divinity is within us all and we share because we care.
We’re living in momentous times. Thousands of years have passed by with millions of events – all focussed to bringing us to this very moment. Centuries pass by with people focussing on their own needs, their lives, their little things and suddenly in a short advent of time some souls walk the planet and do something so profound and of tremendous magnitude – that the world is never the same again. We’re lucky – no, fortunate – to be alive in such times. Now is the time to be alive. Now is the time we can either watch it all happen or be part of it, because every breath is an adventure.
