I received this sms yesterday night and started reflecting:
The best place where you can actually be urself is on the terrace...on a dark loose pyjamas, calm silence of midnight...having view of the neighbours empty roof...under the dark velvet sky embroidered with breeze, listening to the song which defines you..It's all exotic..!

This is the time when you talk to urself..think about all the good & bad & weep or laugh silently..! Who knew nights could be so illuminating, Just you & darkness all around, where you are just false mask over the double's the only time when you are actually yourself.

And I felt that it's so true. The night is when I'm "me". For me the night is the time when I bond with God. When all the lights are turned off, and everything is so silent that you can hear yourself breathe, and I'm lying on my bed, that is when I pray. At that moment it's not a ritual anymore, it's bonding with a friend who you haven't met for a long long time. I talk to Him then, discussing my worries, my problems, sharing my thoughts and happiness. I do not know since when I got into the habit of praying at night but I just realised through that message that during those moments at night I was just being Me knowingly or unknowingly. For me, when I pray at night, it is just me and the Almighty, no double standards, no rituals,no joining of hands, no bending of knees, it's an earnest prayer from my soul each night. The night breaks down all the barriers around me, it projects into the world the true, real, vulnerable, human, me. When there are good days ahead, my nights are happy, well slept-in. When I'm worried, the nights are scary for it gives me no protection, it is at night that I truly face my fears, all alone, all by myself. It is a time of the day that I feel God truly tests you, for you're left all alone at the time, face to face with your darkest fears in this world, analyzing, strategizing, hoping, and sometimes helplessly praying,it makes you so restless for the morning, for the happy hours. Did He plan to make us emotionally stronger this way?......But the night also brings with it so much of calm. Every night when I'm in bed, it's like I wait eagerly for that silence to engulf me, to pacify me, it's like your favourite blanket and you just can't wait to cuddle in it.

Honestly who knew that nights could be so illuminating. Every night has so much to teach us. It is almost like the moral of a story at the end of each day, a lesson learnt on time.

    Just discovered your blog this morning! It is amazing the many wonderful experiences one can discover in the night....I personally love the night sounds, the owl that gives off her hoot, the frogs that sing their song from the pond's bank the night bird we call the whipperwill...and the sound of the breeze as it gently ruffles the leaves of the trees...I agree with you at night is one of the times that I pray b/c it seems my heart just fills up with gratitude over all the beauty / and sound that the creator has blessed our lives with ...enjoyed your post

    This one is really good. Night is indeed the time to realize the reason of our existence and to show gratitude to God for what all He has given..
