FINDING ANSWERS? No more!

‘Ignorance is Bliss’

True that. Hell, yeah!

Sometimes it’s good to remain a jackass and not know all the things. To stay in dark is peaceful sometimes. Well definitely better than to know the bitter truth, atleast! Some questions are best when left unanswered, some doubts are better as self than cleared.

We all face situations where we start to look for answers. There’s nothing wrong with that. But not always knowing everything seems to be healthy for our own selves. We need to find courage to let it go sometimes; letting go of the questions which we know might hurt bad; be devastating; trust breaking; making us fall on to our faces and leave nothing else in the end but scars. All that is important is to make peace with that state of mind of ours. To stay content. To feel blessed.

To let go, is to fear less.
To let go, is to believe more.
To let go, is to find peace.
To let go, is to love more.

Unending Love

 

From my diary…

To my readers i am giving my most cherished and loved poem of all times and beyond ages by my favorite poet Rabindranath Tagore.

               UNENDING LOVE

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it’s age old pain,
It’s ancient tale of being apart or together,
As i stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole star piercing the darkness of time
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount,
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played alongside millions of lovers, shared in the same.
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love, but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found it’s end in you,
The love of all man’s days, both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal lift,
The memories of all lovers merging with this one love of ours-
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

Everyone needs a shelter for solace at some point of time during the day.. To have their peace of mind back.. some find it in family or friends, some in music, some in solitude, some in books, some in hanging out, some in solitude and some like me in poetry.

The Other You

Why is it that we are always expected to behave in a certain manner.. the one which we have been doing for quite a long time. Isn’t it unfair to deal different situations with the same kind of an outlook. Not all the time can you carry the kiddish and fun-loving attitude; and not the mature and rational mind always. But the people around make it so difficult for us sometimes to just lose our mind at times when we go through a major problem in our lives. They keep egging on for us to think with all the logics and be rational and deal with it. Why can’t we like the toddlers who are free to cry their heart out? Or why cant we be like the little girls who laugh hard when they make a blunder? From where have these stereotypical expected behavior crept into our daily lives.

                               ****

I want to break free

I want to laugh hard when i make a blunder

I want to cry loud when i’m heartbroken 

I want to play in the fields when the sun shines

I want to bathe in rain when it pours heavily

I want to fly like a free bird

I want the OTHER ME.

                             ****

If Tomorrow Never Comes

I am scared. For the first time I’m really scared for the security of those I love and care for, and maybe for the first time ever, even scared for those I don’t know at all. For the various terror attacks have shown that I can feel for and empathize deeply with even those who are just names and stories for me in the media.

I have realized the ease with which hundreds of lives can be ended, absolute fragility of life. It’s true that nobody can ever be adequately prepared for for the final reckoning. Well, not unless you have lived a rather full and fulfilling life that has taken you well into old age. Maybe then. Or maybe not even then. None of the hundreds dead would have imagined as they would never see their loved ones again, nor get the time to wrap up their lives.

In the blinking of an eye, so many lives ended and many more changed forever. It’s only when we truly understand that we have limited time on the planet- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up- that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only day we had.

If that’s how fragile life is, the only way you can trust your one moment to the other is by having no regrets. Regret is not something any one of us would would like to exit life with and the best way out of that is to keep the slate clean always.

We would all like to be remembered, but certainly not for the inadequacies or incomplete work we leave behind. Each of us would like to leave behind happy memories. And to work on creating those, we need to start now. Not tomorrow. Not even a minute later. Now is the moment.

Its important to ensure that those we love realize the depth of our feelings, those we have harmed know that we regret it and important that we take adequate measures for the protection of those in our care. Why leave off till tomorrow what we can do today? Why leave it another minute longer to tell your dear ones you love them? Why delay telling a friend how much you value her? Why leave off showing your appreciation to a colleague or acquaintance? Why put off the heartfelt apology till it may be too late?

So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?

For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day, that you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone what turned out to be their one last wish.

“Life’s pretty uncertain my dear.. Die with memories.. Not dreams.”

The Best Is Still Unwritten.

Its a lazy winter morning and i am still under the covers of my cozy blanket.. With the sun hidden behind the roaring clouds.. i look outside through my window into the sky.. pretty hues of red and orange bring a curve to my face and a shine in my eyes.. the entire setup seems to be specially created to take me into the world of my dreams.. the winter chill and the warm blanky.. the colorful spectrum in the sky and my gloomy eyes.. a perfect setting to set free one’s imagination and dreams.. So I close my eyes.. and with a faded smile I think of You.. Your face.. so clear..appears in my mind.. I take your hand and put it around me.. I fall into you with all my heart.. the surroundings coming to a still.. I hear your heart beating.. I get my calm in your embrace.. I lift my head and slowly look upto you in your eyes.. You smile back and caress my hair.. Kiss me on my forehead and take me back in your embrace.. In the next few moments, like a movie our future runs in front of my eyes.. You and me together forever.. Learning.. Growing..Supporting.. Falling in lovewith each other everyday.. Raising our kids.. Making a family.. Making our own sweet world.. Coming out of every problem holding hands.. Fulfilling our responsibilities.. Growing old.. Holding each other till the very last breath…

Ah! I take a moment to let it all sink in me .. A little tear dwells in my eye.. You kiss on my forehead and take me in more tightly.. And at that moment I start to believe.. ‘The Best Is Still Unwritten’
