When you see the setting sun

setting-sunIt gives me immense pleasure to watch the sun go down on me, yesterday, today and maybe day after today! For the past few days I have been watching over my cubicle window where the setting sun can be beautifully captured and enjoyed for quite some time.

Setting sun has a fine mix of melancholy and joy. As soon as the winter afternoon sun starts to go down, I start to think on the day’s chores, missed agendas and upcoming resolutions. But what I fail to understand is the strange blend of feelings that cannot be rightly assessed. Sun being my ruling star (according to by natal charts) I believe in its strong presence in my life.

Whenever there has been a ‘shipwreck’ in my life, I have beamed back with added zeal in no time, much like the sun that goes down, yet comes back the very next morning with added life and vigour!

I am sure all of you must have felt something strange (a rush of emotions, feelings or an unknown line of thought that has remained impossible to ascertain as to why it has come up!) whenever you have witnessed the blissful setting sun…

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.

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. 

broken_heartYou can well understand the things you said and the moments invested,

mean nothing more than a theme forgotten, and a dream much wasted. 

You were there to carry all the burdens, of confused minds and wicked hearts.

You trudged and trudged alone, dragging yourself from the rusted hurts,

But soon you found there was no one beside you, to cleanse your wounds and feed you some,

wasting some more time is what was left for you to do,

prepare yourself for a never ending rage and write a song for nobody.

You could see people fall apart, or stand still, some forgot it all,

but some had the time and the zeal to come! 

dream_bigThis is what life taught me yet again in the past few weeks. That is the same reason why I came back to share my thoughts on this. A couple of weeks back I took my goals, dreams and aspirations way too lightly and let myself go with a somewhat vicious flow of time. I started taking a route which meant I would let go of myself completely – let go of my ideals, beliefs, philosophies and character. I met someone and took a rash decision of settling down – but soon I realized, this was the biggest mistake I was doing. I started hurting a few people around me, not thinking about what I was actually doing!

Such was the rush from the strangers (whom I just met) that I was getting very little time to assess on my ways of life (that I have lived by so far in my life!). However, the day of revelations came by. I came home dead drunk and saw my mother, with tears in her eyes. I was not in my senses to act sober but still I could sense that there were people shouting in my place. Much later in the night I realized it was all about my rash decisions and the way I was not thinking about about my career, goals and passions, but the way I was throwing everything up for a relationship that I myself did not count in high value! 

Then I decided to confront a friend of mine who made me understand (things I very well knew but failed to stress upon.) that nothing good comes by when a person rushes on things. I also understood that I was being wrongly influenced to take on a step in life that was useless. I took time off with myself (as I always do) for a couple of days and decided that ‘I will never let go myself’ – no matter what! As an individual no one should ever do that as it would mean killing one’s own desires, dreams and ways of life. 

The best thing I could ever do (even as a failed poet! 🙂 ) was to dream, and keep on dreaming as that was my world where no one could encroach or intervene, even my parents. That has been the case with me for my entire life. How could I not see these things? However, the best part about life’s teachings is the simple ways you see yourself learning, without hurting anyone, most importantly without damaging your very own SELF – the epicenter of your life’s journey. 

I thank my cosmos, my parents, good vibes around me (no matter how little they come) and my strength of character that have helped me in stabilizing myself. ‘I’ must be counted in every step we take in life. This is what I learned yet again, and so beautifully! 🙂

CHEERS to LIFE!  🙂

Love is our only power

love is all powerful

No matter what we do in life the only way we can all be powerful is by loving our fellow humans. Most of us realize this late in life but the truth is ‘Love is our only power’ . It will never make us complete if we keep accumulating wealth and power. The day we start loving for no reason will be the day when we realize our inner power.

I am not shameful in claiming that I have failed in relationships badly, I have failed in in my career numerous times, that I have also failed to achieve academic feats. But in claiming my failures I never fail to claim my success in spreading love. I have always been (or felt like I am) the torch bearer of love. Since childhood I had this strange urge to bring smile into people’s lives (people of all age groups).

I never counted on the whys and whos in love. I loved solely to spread the innate joys of love. Now that I am growing old and weak, I have this growing need to spread the message that ‘Love is our only power.’ There is no other way to conquer the world. Love is all powerful and when we become all powerful there will be no need for war, hatred, weapons and madness of building empires.
