Boundless Blessings by Kamal

Kamal and I have been reading and commenting on each others blogs for so long that I have completely forgotten how we met.  She has a real talent for meaningful stories, cute poems and funny jokes … so she certainly mixes up her posts. Read on for a further taste …

Give a brief personal background and talk about your hobbies/interests?

My name is KAMAL and am a Zoroastrian by birth. I work for an Oil Company in Mumbai and have two children. My daughter is married with a son, while my son has not yet married. We have a beautiful little angel her name is AMBER, she is our golden retriever who loves us unconditionally. With my husband and his mother that completes my small family. I loved writing poems from a very young age and have recently started writing stories mostly about what impacts people lives. I love reading good inspirational and spiritual books that have a deep impact on my life too.

When, where and why did you start blogging?

Since I started writing poems and stories, my son’s friend suggested I start a WordPress bloggers site to continue what I like to do. Since I am not very internet savvy he started the blog for me and I always wanted to have my Master’s presence everywhere who is everything for me so I named my blog “Boundless Blessings” and I started about three years ago.

What blogging tips or advice would you give someone just starting?

Keep your stories, poems or whatever you like simple and reader friendly. It must appeal to those reading it. Another very important thing is one needs to encourage the other blogger by not simply by pressing the LIKE button but appreciating, reading and commenting on their post. So that they feel that their work is appreciated by other bloggers. I have seen many bloggers who would like us to comment on their blog but they do not want to comment on our work of art. It has to be a two-way communication and that is how the blogger continues in WordPress blogging for many years.

What do you most enjoy about blogging and what have you learnt?

I love blogging but every day becomes a little too much because one has to do other work too. One cannot concentrate on blogging only. I like keeping various types of work like one day I will be writing a moral story that are eye openers in themselves and tells so much truth and how we must behave with ourselves and improve in our outlook. Other times I like to put up poems that have so much touch of beauty and naturalness in them and so on. I would not want to bore my readers.

What I have learnt from blogging is that I have made so many virtual friends who are such wonderful and beautiful beings. It is so nice to hear kind words and thanks from them and that your work is appreciated the world over. I do not distinguish about anyone or anybody. For me we are MANY in the ONENESS and for me all are priceless and this World is a Beautiful Place to Live if we all root out SELFISHNESS and work towards SELFLESSNESS!

Has your blog or writing led to opportunities for you?

Oh! Yes Kate definitely. In my office we have a monthly magazine and every month they very kindly put up my stories or my poems and I get a lot of reviews and accolades for my work. This is all thanks to WordPress which is a great platform where my work is showcased. I am trying to publish my book of short stories maybe by the end of this year and then later my book of poems too.

What methods do you use to expand your readership?

My stories are quite easy to read as I do not use any jargon or difficult words. They also have a simple meaning in that they pertain to our lives and my poems are mostly to do with a touch of spirituality or with the natural surroundings and a fervent longing to be with the One who is in all of us. His love, His grace is always flowing in all these works. I have a great following on WordPress and so nice to hear comments from my followers.

Time Management can be a challenge how do you stay disciplined and organized?

Yes sometimes time is a great challenge and that is the reason I have started putting up my post only twice a week because there is work too. I also love reading posts from other bloggers and commenting too, so I take out time of my day and do so. That is the discipline that I have kept and when I have to do my other work or at my home too, I am not focusing on the Internet or social media.

Which is your favorite post and why?

There is nothing like a favorite post for me. All my stories and poems are favourite to me. There is so much learning that one can get out of them. If you are asking about other bloggers than I can say there are many who write inspiring and encouraging posts.

And I must say Kate, I love the way you write on any subject of interest and you go so deep into it and are so encouraging to all of us. Love your apt pictures too they are so cute. [Thank you!]

What has been your most popular post and did you expect it to be the most popular?

Actually many of my post have been liked by so many bloggers and they have reblogged them on their pages too. So I could not pick one like that because all my posts I feel are great and are very inspiring and life lessons are learnt from them.

Share something funky about yourself or something that most don’t know?

Oh! You must have seen me posting these naughty fun loving posts time and again so I love laughter, love to be happy, love to be with friends, cracking jokes and sometimes will go dancing or having a gala time too. I love seeing good movies too and when on holiday we have a great time. It is not that I will not have anger or stress in life and you must ask my family about me how I am but with the help from my Master whose presence is always with me and his teachings that have had a great influence on my life, I have learnt to inculcate his words and silence. All this is a continuous process. We as humans stumble and are weak and go thru pain and struggles but as he says this is all a Vacant Dream nothing has ever happened and nothing ever will. We are all Eternal Souls and Everlastingly One and there is nothing but LOVE in this entire Universe. Love God so much that you forget yourself. A beautiful message on Life Has He said: ‘This Life is a divine mighty Joke. Joke is the very word, most suitable, mighty divine joke and Zero. To call it even ZERO would make it exist.’

      1. O my sweet sister in Meher Baba, we serve and serve the same God, God is love in everyone. I am praying for your husband’s recovery, I assisted my mother in same regard, healing is slow yet worthy at the finish line. I’m been busy too, de-winterizing our home and sprucing for Spring, today is gorgeous and I will walk. I see now from your birth religion you receive wisdom, please share more, yes? My writing is daily inspired after prayer and dreams at night and when I click on the “publish” button, then it is for all. I will post your quote TODAY. Have a marvelous week, with love, zaza
