With you its different!

“Dance of life or dance of death, Know that these come from Me, and rejoice. What more dost thou want, than that thou hast Me?”

I always feel excited before telling my story. But I also know I’m going to shed happy tears when I talk about this topic which is so close to my heart. There are times in our lives when it is hard to be completely honest or open about our flaws and weakness, small mistakes or major goof ups.

But with him it’s different.

Every day is about new passions, adventures, possibilities and achievements. With him its different because my soul feels at peace, my heart beats the perfect rhythm and my feet is at ease. It’s with him that I’m completely alive, inside out, knowing the reason of my existence and my authentic self.

When I look at him my heart sings to the tunes unheard and my eyes shine with the sun. This place is without struggle or fear. No worries, barriers or even desires. The only thing that exists is love and light and happiness and celebration. It is my divine romance, my spiritual awakening with my beloved Guru Paramhansa Yogananda.

Yes, my Guru is my Valentine and with him its different. I was 10, maybe 11 when I was filled with wonder and love when I saw his photo. And since then my life has been nothing but celebration in every aspect.

Since a very young age I have witnessed that life is not a bed of roses. But despite that fact , my faith in him was undoubted for and his grace in my life was nothing less than miracles. Because I knew with him it was different.

I can’t Love him enough, I can’t show him enough, I can’t express how his love is evolving within, because no measurable means can judge it’s depth and no mathematical parameters are available to compile his grace.

I say so because I know that it’s different with him. The Guruship goes to the most humble, serviceful and devoted. And to be a devotee to this guruship is beyond love. So never stop writting love letters to God and the Guru because the divine is your only valentine.

The inspiration for this blog was a picture prompt: With you it’s Different


  1. When asked to choose between the Guru or the God, Sant Kabir chose Guru for only one reason that its Guru who can take the disciple to the God again and again. Your post reminded me of this Aakriti.
    You definitely have a divine Valentine!

    1. Aww. I’m glad you could relate it that way and isn’t it true, life without a guru or spirituality is incomplete. Thank you so much for reading.

  2. It is really important to have mentor in life and happy to see that your post talks about your guru.
    I am reading ‘Karma & Reincarnation’ book by Guru Yogananda.


  3. Its an extremely profound thought to submit yourself and your love for the devine. I am not sure I could say that I understand this kind of dedication, but if it gives you so much strength and power to go on with life, I would say i am happy for you.

  4. Hi.. though I never possessed any special reverence towards any Guruji or Guruma. .but yet reading your story I was quite happy. In the present world very few of us feel this way… uniquely described your take on the prompt. .. keep writing☺

  5. To have faith and to believe in it completely with all devotion is the essense of true love. I respect people who follow their path if faith selflessly. Beautifully penned 🙂

  6. I haven’t had a Guru and would probably not understand your love in its entirety but I do believe that finding love and peace in someone is truly the most beautiful thing. I like that you’re so devoted to him and made him your Valentine. 🙂

  7. Agree, you can adore and love anyone. You are blessed to have someone to look upto in your life. Each one of us finds motivation and inspiration in different sources, you found it in your guru. Happy to have read your story.

    1. Thank you so much Praggati. Absolutely. I believe the way you look at life after having a guru is completely different and beautiful.

  8. Every one needs a guide or a guru to lead a life while tackling the obstacles in the path, you are lucky to have found one. stay blessed.
    however honestly I never thought that this can also be one of the responses to the prompts, very unique.

  9. Guru and shishya – that’s a very honest love. I have heard a lot about Paramhansa, my neighbour has been following him for last 55 years and she is a yogini too who believes in Paramhansa and Maa Sharda. She talks about them very often to me.

  10. A totally different take on d prompt, a religious perspective is not always v feel to write abt as ppl might judge us in a way or other, but gud to know u shared Ur story here on such prompt… Lovely write up…

    1. Thank you so much dear. I believe I’m more spiritual than religious. And I don’t become a football of others opinions. A strong conviction in what we believe is right, is all that is required. But I’m glad you liked the interpretation

  11. I’m really impressed with your writing abilities as well as with the layout for your weblog.

    Is tgis a paid topic or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice blog like this one today..

  12. I love how you have expressed your feelings. Religious love is often overlooked, yet is one of the oldest and purest forms of love. Great post! #VDayBlogTrain

  13. When you experience spiritual awakening, it’s different and that’s what too have experienced. The glory of knowledge and devotion is always strong. Loved your take on the prompt.

  14. Every emotion is different
    The perception of love is different
    The blissful peace is different
    With you its different!
    Your blob brought a smile to my face and that is what is so different about this blog!
