There are some doors that fail to answer our questions and there are some that quite easily give away all the answers without much asking. I have made an agreement with certain doors of my life that have chosen to remain silent. I guess that’s the best way! There is no point in knocking away when there is no one who will answer or let you in.

Much like such doors and incidents and happenings in life that need not be given much importance. Let go! We must let go! Doing this will let us keep afloat in all the harsh rush of life.

Then again when one fine day certain doors start calling you out, try to see through them as to what actually is needed from you. There is nothing beyond give and take in life. People or places that you come across which does not demand much of you are the ones to stay and do you all the good… Hold on to them!DSC02690

The last few days seemed like an era, and the era has seemingly come to an end. I always thought and believed that the ones who leave us or we choose to leave behind never come back and even if they do they never stay back only to leave us empty yet again, like they always do, once their unknown purpose is served. Till the time comes when I figure out that why is there that one person in my life who comes back every now and then only to leave me in the midst of nowhere after doing all that is done, I will have to cover myself up in the blanket of blankness that surrounds me….

black_holeThe only thing that I have realized this time, is that the fact that my friend is in similar mortal pain that I am in because there is no other way to explain the indefinite break and silence that has been chosen…

A true blanket of blankness can be caused by severe pain, a grinding numbness that throws you off the course and you have no cards in your hand to play your daily moves…. – You become a walking dead! Probably this is required every now and then for 7s (in terms of numerology) like us to understand and value life’s depths and intensities on order to let go of it all! I say 7 because sadly we are the ones who feel, observe, see, assess, analyse, take the onus and understand life’s mysteries like no other number. This is the reason why in the end of it all we choose to remain loners and become complete sages (abstaining from all forms of human emotions and connecting with the bigger entities like the cosmos…).

Every human must try each day to abstain from regular emotions, beliefs and philosophies and start welcoming mysteries of life, the greater depths of knowledge and revelations in life as a whole. Our spiritual world must be aroused in order to become a good listener, a true observer, proper guide and silent path breaker. Till we attain all that let us also smilingly learn to enjoy the warm ‘Blanket of Blankness’.

Easy Come Easy Go!

Posted: January 5, 2018 in awakening, life, soul searching

Life is a roller-coaster ride and every ride is different from one another. Some rides are way too beautiful and way too smooth to be true. But what holds true for one might hold a bigger truth for another. People taking life in face value and keeping a false image of a person will eventually understand that not everything in life is easily understood, much like the human mind…

There are people who you will come across, in your life, who will keep suggesting ideas and new ways to lead ‘YOUR’ (whether it is professional or personal way of life) life or change tracks and start doing things your principle will never allow you to, but eventually if you stick to your guns (patiently listening and accepting anyone and everyone’s opinion but not actually being party to any of it!) you will be able to show these people that life has precious things kept in store for you and all the things that seemed like diamond to those people were actually uncut ‘COAL’! 

It isn’t bad to advise people but it is bad to adjudge other’s people’s way of life and ideologies. Easy things are achieved easily but life as a whole is never an easy concept and the riches of life are much bigger than wealth, properties, followers and attitudes. Life has certain goals which do not come to you easily and neither do they get destroyed easily. So the ones who achieve things easily might have to let go of certain things easily or if they try to show other people what life actually is about will definitely be shown the real context of this proverb – Easy Come Easy Go!

We have been born to lead life our way and help others who have lost their way or have difficulty understanding the crux of it all (meaningful existence and well defined co-existence). 

Some of us (often called as the ‘other’ people by the people surrounding us in our day-to-day living) are accepted more easily and widely in the ‘other’ world than in the world we live in on daily basis. I will not confuse you by leaning on the supernatural or extra-terrestrial world objectives. By this ‘other’ world I am stating the countryside, the summer place or the off-route and detour places that we often (or secretly) take to let go of our heavy feelings and emotional burdens.

By this ‘other’ world I am trying to point to the nearest village/neighborhood or a suburban place we have so rightly called our own for a considerable period of time.

A place that we tend to refer to, as the ‘other’ world is our parallel world of existence. For me it is a district set far off from my city where I connect with myself. I need to visit this place at least twice a month or in a span of two months to get rejuvenated. This is where I wash away my torn and tattered self.

In order to stay connected to the world we need to stay connected with ourselves. Here is a picture of my ‘other’ place. This place has given me the strength to come back, every time I have failed to connect with myself.

no man’s land

You, me and everyone playing the game of life need to have this place to find inner peace. Without remaining connected to our selves we will never be able to attain liberation.

Go out and about people! That is the only way that suits the universe. Be a part of that ‘other people’! Remain happy and at peace.

 

downloadWhen do we attain the ultimate state of PEACE? I would like to answer this simple question in an equally simple manner. There might be a million philosophies and preaching that will suggest ways to attain peace. They most definitely show us some great ways to liberate ourselves. But in our daily lives it often becomes difficult to maintain sanity and most importantly hold ourselves together in our constant quest for life and existence. Peace is within our body and mind and the only way to become peaceful is to accept the disturbances surrounding us.

The moment we accept, allow and acknowledge the grievances, shortcomings and disturbances in our daily lives we free our mind. Peace is never to put an effort in avoiding pain, annoyances, sufferings, commotion and disturbances. Peace is but a state of mind that KNOWS it all!

By accepting and allowing disturbances we choose to give importance to our inner peace. There can be no good done without acknowledging the existence of the bad or the evil.

Let us consider these points:

  • Without noise we will never hear.
  • Without smelling a bad odor we will not be able to smell a beautiful aroma.
  • Without experiencing a bad sight we will not get to an enjoyable scene.

Quite similarly without accepting the disturbances existing in our lives we can never be peaceful. Finding peace in ourselves is possible, not by ignoring or avoiding all the commotion, disorder and disturbances but by overcoming them in spite of their existences.

So from today onward let us choose to remain AT PEACE and we will never fail to attain the state of enlightenment.

Just when you think that your life has taken a new turn and you have left your friends and relationships far behind (people who left you to rot, not offering a hand to pick you up when you needed them the most), you receive  strong jerks – sudden calls, ‘texts from the other side!’ and unexpected communication from people from your past. What do you do at this moment?

There is nothing for you to do but listen to the useless conversations. As an educated and cultured human being you are also entitled to be subtle and casual (instead of rude and rough) in your approach.

So to sum it up, your life is a smooth ride only when you are a loner. The moment you choose to be social and successful all the wrong people start re-entering your life path. Whether you choose to erase them completely or ignore them to a certain extent is your call. Your choice shapes your character and your future approaches.

Remember bad is good as long as you are comfortable handling everything.

deleting_memoriesHow hard is it to erase somebody’s existence from your life? We can choose to cut off all the social networking ties yet remain largely unsuccessful in deleting a person completely from our lives. We need to put in real efforts in doing so, if we are not the people who do not feel anything even when they meet or greet their friends with whom they have fallen out. I belong to the race which does not believe in keeping any kind of contact whatsoever with the one who has cheated on me, taken me down, hurt me for a longer time than we remained friends, etc. 

Saddest part of this reality is the fact that deleting images, notes, texts and contact details are not enough. We need to erase their memories. I consider myself to be a considerably calm person and my efforts have been so far a bit of a success. I have started blocking my own thoughts whenever memories come by. This is one hell of a process. These are people and moments we are talking about, not some random stranger talk. Our effort in deleting someone from our life is solely to let ourselves enjoy peace and the sheer happiness of existence. Life is a constant commotion and why do we need to keep hurting our inner peace? We must release ourselves from all forms of memories attached to these people who have made us feel low in life at some point or the other. 

We are tiny parts of the bigger universe and we have significant roles to play in our lives. We must not hinder that process by crying over past moments and memories. I am not suggesting to avoid memories but what I am trying to say is the fact that we must not think of the bad things. We must let go of all things negative as they hurt US.

WE, US, ME, – These are important as long as they do not make us shallow individuals. Pride and ego are important to make a character stronger, bigger and mightier. We have arrived as sole (and supreme too) entities and our life path will determine our  liberation. A soul is what matters and our only goal is to liberate it from the clutches of negativity, evil, bad blood and bad intent. Only then shall we attain enlightenment.
