A Letter to Soul, just any Soul

20 Apr

Working hard is good. Who doesn’t like to work hard? That’s the way you earn, get to enjoy life, trying to find a purpose in life. Fun is important too. But it goes beyond the saying- all work and no play make jack a dull boy. I think this line is such a cliche. Because you and I are not Jack, we are individuals. Distinct. Separate. Unique.

Each being is different. But people next to us, people around us regularly tend to forget this crucial fact as if it’s no more than another cliche, among millions of cliche’s around them. In the grind of the daily struggle called life, people forget themselves. People tend to forget their identity, needs, and slowly tend to ignore the small things that bring them happiness in small ways. If that happens, we can hardly blame others who take us for granted. In that case, even if there is free time it feels like as if we are lying useless doing nothing, the feeling of not doing anything makes jack dull even more. Moreover, it turns individuals into the cliche jack. The cliche jack is an even more dangerous phenomenon because this jack has an extreme either-or tendency. This jack can can only feel dullness and joy.

Both these feelings do not fulfill a person’s desires which are above such emotions. A person is most fulfilled when he is contented. Again, a person may be content with what he/she has, but still not joyous about the fact. In fact, he/she may feel dull about it.

If one is feeling dull, they usually try to find happiness inside, motivate and elevate their self from the negativity induced by others. This feeling should last long and should be adopted in character. Positive feelings should be retained.

There is a saying- one should never look back after final goodbyes are said. If you look back, there is a chance that it will be difficult to get out of that phase in your life. That phase could have been good or bad, i don’t know, depends. I don’t know if this saying is true but i also feel that one should look back if they need to reflect. Also, it is important to get out of the lull of the past, because it’s gone and irrevocable and also separates us from the present. It’s a thine membrane that separates past and the present, nevertheless it is important to reconnect with the present. The future is waiting, of course.

Life is beautiful, enjoy it and please don't take yourself for granted.

Ego Wars- the path to salvation?

26 Feb

Call  it Kalyug. Call it 21st century.  Nostradamus may have predicted the world’s death in 2012, but does evil really die ? Did Nostradamus have any idea about the biggest ongoing war of all? He predicted 9/ll, or so they say he did, I do not know. But there is a mental war that is creating chaos all over the world, even as this is being written. The war of all egos. 600 crore people on the last predicted count, the world has 12 billion eyes. Technically, there should be 600 crore hearts. But alas, there are not.

I have felt to a large extent, that this trend of ego wars is causing more fires, attacks, murders, crime, hate than any disease or motive. Look around you, is everybody around you well meaning? Salvaging one’s ego at the expense of causing others hurt is no less than an achievement for people. People ignore calls to feel important. People don’t reply to messages to feel pride. People spread prejudice against others. You may ask why? Very simple. Doing this, they get a good peaceful night’s sleep. Knowing that somebody else is in trouble, it pacifies them. You may think i am a negative person but i feel around me a sense of negativity spread by people. And what more, they trouble you, they hate you, they do mistakes, Yet they are saints. Saints to the world, to everyone. How to beat them? Remember two things. Every dog has his day. And- God is watching. One may feel bullied around, but i feel it is better to strike them at the right time is better than digging your own grave. Wait and Watch. And once that watch is one, one must be vigilant, at the best opportunity—– fight with them ? NO Make peace with your heart first. My dear, its better to keep your heart clean. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind, Gandhi said. If you put you foot in dung like people and behave like them, think revenge, you are the one who will get dirty. They have an ego. Does that mean, you keep one up your sleeve too? Life is too small, and the world is too round to fall prey to such flat thoughts and denying your self from meeting new beautiful people. The concept of time is beautiful for it’s quality that it is perennial. Never constant. Ever changing. Ever lasting.

Bad times, good times. They come and go. Make Love, not War. May all the missing hearts Rest in Peace. Don’t pity them. It’s no worth pitying the dead.

Smiles win hearts- so what if the feeling is not reciprocated. Just Smile.
