    Lemons

    When God allows life to give you lemons, He most probably expects you to make lemonade, yes and then get up, take the lemon seeds and have them grow to be trees so that you bear fruit.

    You oughtta bear fruit in all seasons darling.

    Mad & Moonly: Book 3 of The Goa Saga by Eisha now on Amazon

    In the third and final installment of The Goa Saga, Saysha discovers that she has inherited a $25 million trust fund and a 2% shareholding in Lebedinsky Mining Company. That empowers her to vote and decide the fate of the $780 million company. One man is out there to stop her, her mother's old classmate from Delhi and the largest shareholder in Lebedinsky Mining, Oleg Oblonsky. And only one man can fight Oleg, the twisted genius of her husband, Aeram. She teams up with him and goes to New York to vote in a critical board meeting that will decide the fate of their property and river in Goa.

    Aeram's demons take over his mind and he forcibly kisses Saysha in a park and tells her to remain his wife. Repulsed by his insanity, he then talks of ending his acting career and also his life. James tells Saysha that he cannot leave his brother ever and should she consider marriage to him, she will have to also live with her ex-husband under the same roof. Saysha has the difficult choice of whether she should marry a courageous man like James but remain second on his list of priorities after his brother or should she find a cause of her own and devote her lifetime and funds to it?

    Shadow & Soul, Book 1 of The Goa Saga by Eisha Sarkar

    Saysha Singh, a beautiful, multiracial young woman from Delhi, meets Aeram Khan, a gorgeous model-actor in college and they fall madly in love with each other. Aeram is the only legal heir of the Albuquerques, a family descended from Afonso de Albuquerque, the sixteenth-century Portuguese statesman and conquistador of Goa. After a few weeks of passionate romance, Saysha gets wary of committing her life to a controlling boyfriend. She leaves him and moves to Shimla. He moves to Mumbai and becomes a very successful actor and entrepreneur.


    Three years later, when he is in Shimla for a shoot, Saysha meets him again and they rekindle their romance in secret until he goes as her date to a masquerade ball where he unexpectedly reveals his identity. Saysha becomes fodder for primetime TV news. Aeram brings her back to Delhi with the help of his gay half-brother and stunt-double, James Albuquerque. After persuading her father, an army officer, Aeram and Saysha marry in court. Aeram and James strive to protect her privacy and dignity at all cost. However, living under the shadow of her famous husband makes a dent in Saysha's self-esteem and she tries to carve her own identity.


    When Saysha finds out that James loves Aeram, she initially is shocked but gradually realises that of the two, James is the better man. She is attracted towards him in spite of his sexual orientation. Aeram gets jealous of their friendship but cannot get rid of James. In a graveyard in Goa, Saysha discovers there is more to Aeram and James's bond than what they show.

    Gone Goa Gone: Book 2 of The Goa Saga by Eisha Sarkar

    In the Age of Discovery, there were three identical crosses. Portugal’s King Manuel I had bestowed one on Vasco da Gama, who discovered the sea route to India. The second he had bestowed on Pedro Álvares Cabral, who discovered Brazil, and the third on Afonso de Albuquerque who established the Portuguese hegemony in the Indian Ocean. Over the centuries two of the crosses have disappeared. Probably they’re hidden away in some antique collectors’ vaults. The third hangs around James’s neck.


    A clause put in by an ancestor during the Inquisition in Goa prevents Aeram, a practising Muslim, from inheriting Richard Albuquerque's estates. Only his Christian son, James, can claim the title even though he was born out of wedlock. When Aeram presents Richard's will in court, Daniel Albuquerque aka Danny (Richard's cousin) contests the claim. James and Aeram battle the demons of their past to take on Danny and the very powerful Archbishop Patrick to save their estates.


    When Aeram and Saysha go to New York, they accidentally meet Igor Lebedinsky, a young intern at Aeram's agent's office. Saysha discovers that he's the son of Alexandre Lebedinsky, the mining tycoon from Moscow and brother of her deceased birth-mother.


    Saysha realizes that James is not an ordinary stuntman. Even her very rich and powerful husband is scared of him. In the forests around the Albuquerque villa on the banks of the Mandovi river, James finally shows her why the property means much more than mere inheritance.

    The Rabbit Hole Below The Tower

    Once the guardian of the tower.
    Protecting the very well fed kings in power.
    Took a peak under the majestic curtain, the taste a little dour...

    Skeletons under their closet, blame the heretics.
    Sun above all of us, nothing you can ever fix.
    The inflated ego of those in power, they all know the tricks.
    Following the melodies of the piper, leading astray the innocent sheep.

    Like selling your soul to the Devil and dining with God.
    Self awareness non existent, their pride is all they got.
    Self appointed and scripted heroes, the sacred texts apparently they forgot.

    Finally have freedom, but first we have to fall.
    Pain, hope, companionship, faith. You will lose it all.
    In the place where that tower once was, you will face upwards the light and stand ever so tall.

    The Kingdom of The Heavens is within you. To the shunned, you are the truth. You are of divine nature.

    New Day Paganism

    A Christian praying to Jesus, a Hindu praying to idols, and a Muslim praying to Muhammad are the same; pagans and destined for hell. Worship belongs only to the Lord of the worlds who has no partners.

    THE PAULIAN CODE

    He had a slow dialogue with his legs
    when his senses threatened righteousness.
    His flesh did quiver with pleasure,
    warm, yet chilly,
    for it was conquered by lust,
    yearning for an ill-sweetness.

    But when he had a second dialogue with his spirit,
    the Paulian code re-echoed,
    and at that moment,
    he found purpose again.

    The Pauline code: [2 Timothy 2:22]
    "Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace..." (NLT)

    Should we pray with few words, or should we pray with many words?

    Solomon the wise tells us to pray with few words (Ecclesiastes 5:2–3).
    And Jesus himself teaches us to pray with few words (Matthew 6:7–8).
    But Paul tells us to pray without ever stopping (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
    Well in my view the answer to this is that pray thoughtfulness. Continue to pray to God in terms of giving thanks to Him or praising Him or even asking for something from your Father in heaven. Use your words wisely is what "thoughtfulness" means.
    When you are thinking while you pray you give your entire self to God.
    God wants our undivided attention while we pray to Him.
    So you can be both heartfelt and succinct.

    I've been in a spiritual rut, struggling with questions about my Christian faith that are incredibly difficult to answer. But despite my doubts and struggles, God is still good. No matter what I think or what my circumstances are, it doesn't change God's nature. Though I can't always understand everything--which makes sense, as I'm just a 21-year old human--I will still trust God through it all.

    Holy, holy is God

    Oh, God!
    How I wish to understand you, for
    Getting wisdom seems impossible in this life.
    Only you can provide that
    Despite the darkness and blindness.

    Praise!
    Reach out and sing to Him who is holy!
    Always preach about Him only,
    In seasons of love and seasons of loss.
    See what He has done in our lives,
    Even with the animals and the rocks.

    Holy!
    Oh how holy you are, God.
    Let's all say this together!
    Yes, we shall praise your creation for eternity!

    Sing!
    In times of trouble and ease
    Never stop singing about Him,
    God, the Lord God almighty!

    Why would You redeem me?

    You grow Your roses on my barren soul
    You walk the journey with me after my latest train wreck
    You wrap the jagged pieces of my alabaster heart in festive giftwrap
    You ignite the frozen charcoal of my essence with perfect efficacy
    You brew the bitterness into a flowery delicacy
    My Jesus, You are the Redeemer, perfectly in control

    In the Christian faith, #faith is the life of every believer.

    The Bible says; "The just shall live by faith."

    The Bible teaches patience and trust, over doubt, impatience and worry...assuring us that, there's no impossible case with Jesus. He wakes the dead up, then and now...there are testimonies all around the world to testify to that.

    Jesus says; with men, it may be impossible, not with God, for with God all things are possible!

    So, when I go through difficulties, and trusting God for provision, as I'm right now, I like to remind myself of the promises of God, and just "lock up" on them.

    My God can not flop, He doesn't wear flip-flop.
    Only Him can wake the dead up.
    The possibilities with Him, are nonstop.
    He has made me drank from His cup,
    and, He's promised me, to always turn up.
    His promises, He told me to stand on and lock-up.
    For, it is impossible for Him to lie or fuck up.
    He said, "Fear not, give no room to worry, look up."
    I will keep my faith hot, so I don't flop!

    Faith is everything for Christians.
    The Bible says, without faith, it is impossible to please God.

    Faith is trusting God, to fulfill His promise through Jesus, without doubting God's ability to fulfill His promise!

    If you are very confident in the ability of God to do what He has promised, you won't but enjoy every moment while it last.

    The Bible teaches that, everyone outside the faith, is of darkness. As a result, Christians can't have intimate relationships with them.

    A Lifetime Ago

    Sometimes I wonder
    Thoughts of another.
    They creep up on me.
    They once were mine.

    I feel Vibrations
    Afterglow tensions
    Just an extension
    Theory of mind.

    Sometimes I miss Him.
    Sometimes I hate Him.
    These thoughts are nonsense.
    A waste of my time.

    They'll just keep coming.
    So no more running.
    I'm much more loving
    I'll be Just fine.

    Why am I like this?
    These thoughts, intrusive.
    Almost abusive.
    Guess life's a bitch.

    Yet here I still am
    With gentle lyrics
    Alive and kickin'
    Against the bricks.

    They said it'd be hard
    But I don't feel God
    These bricks are solid
    Against my sole

    That chapter’s ending.
    My thoughts are bending.
    It feels like flying!
    I'm free. I’m whole.

    Time to get going.
    I won't be slowing.
    New seeds to be sowing,
    Though I'm no rush.

    So I am leaving.
    Done with my bleating.
    But I'll keep on breathing.
    I don't feel lost.
