UBC 29 - GBE2 - Unexpected

Post 29 for the Ultimate Blogging Challenge is GBE2's prompt "Unexpected"

The Universe inevitably propels us forward to our next step whatever that may be.

So when things unexpectedly occur I take them as signs that I am meant to walk that path.

Each morning and evening I listen to devotional music on the way to and from work on the bus.
This helps me relax and puts me into a calm state of mind - ready to tackle anything at work - and then ready to leave it all behind and spend a happy and relaxed evening with my family at home.

But for the last week as I've been off work (in between jobs) I haven't adhered to my usual practice.

So this morning the Universe gives me a prod in the form of a youtube video posted by Jessica at Ascending the hills on her facebook wall. A quiet reminder from the Universe, to carry on that practice at home. Thanks Jessica for the nice reminder and for posting a beautiful video.

Here is the video. The pronunciation isn't perfect, but it has a lovely melody and is beautifully sung with heart and soul.


Youtube - Kashi Vishwanath Gange

The bhajan (devotional song) is very nicely translated here

And then I went onto research the singer Krishna Das, an American born Jeffrey Kagal. I love the blend of West and East that he brings into his music as I believe God is Universal and also because my scriptures are both Eastern and Christian; Eastern from birth, Christian from school (I went to an Anglican school).


Youtube - Jesus on that mainline


Wish you a day of unexpected miracles. Mine was a joyous one today.


Warm Regards

  1. I, too, believe God is universal. How could He possibly be any other way? We try to trap Him into our given categories and labels , but in His love and mercy, He shatters them all on the deepest level, uniting us all in His love.

    I'm so glad you enjoyed the Krishna Das video I posted on my wall. I love his music and listen to him every morning. It's a great way to start the day!
    ~ many blessings :)

  2. Now that was unexpected, a bhajan from a non Hindu! Yes God belongs to every one, the paths to get to him may be different. Namaste

    1. Namaste Phoenixritu, Yes totally unexpected that Jessica posted a Bhajan, not so unexpected that I did as Hinduism is my birth religion. Over the years I have realised, as you say, that though paths are different they all lead to Spirit and that we all are connected. I am Spiritual not so religious but I find devotional music particularly Bhajans very meditative.
      Blessings to you.
