Piercing through

Trembling in my deluge
Of gloomy uncertainty,
I yearn for an oasis
Of blooming clarity!

If I stop and curse
This mental confusion,
I might get stuck
In a whirlpool of delusion!

Darkness is not the absence
Of blinding light.
Darkness is deficiency
Of fortitude, that inner knight!

As I pierce my way
Through that receding night,
My path becomes clear and
I finally unite with that eternal light!

The Power of Now

Empathy

The reason we exist is because of the balance of nature, because of the empathy of the universe and yet we humans lack it to a great extent. And that’s why there is so much of chaos nowadays.


Our violent yellow star can annihilate our planet if it really touches it physically but it chooses to stay away and show its kindness by giving life to us.


Similarly the planets, the moons, the stars and the galaxies all depend on each other for their survival. Empathy rules to a great extent, Infact life itself is a product of empathy, the balance.

I know many people will say its all about science but mind you even science has a heart!


But we humans are deterring from our path. We hardly care about others, barely connect with them , hate has become a new normal . Compassion has become a rare commodity and apathy is pushing us towards sufferings, greater chaos.


Global warming, intolerance , prejudice, riots, pandemic have become a new normal. On an individual scale mental health has taken a beating. Depression, anxiety, suicides we are seeing it all.

RIP Sushant


Currently the entire India and many fans across the world mourning the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, one of the finest actors of Bollywood. If only people around him understood him, if only he was not surrounded by heartless people who let him down, things would have been different. People hardly noticed it on his ever smiling face.

Another Joker faded away giving his all to the audience!


You will never get it What’s there inside those smiling faces until you connect with them, share their grief, Happiness and everything. Hate should be avoided at any cost even if you don’t agree with them.

Connections, friendly talks, compassion can do magic to create balance in our lives.


Kindness is the light we need right now. Sooner we realise the importance of empathy in our lives the better we will become, the longer we will survive.


Empathy is the only order in this universe!


Stay connected, show kindness, be around the people who listen!

Craving

Beyond the mountains of grief,
There’s an ocean of Ecstasy.
Beyond the rubbles of my failed endeavours,
My soul craves for that vibrant Felicity
!

Maybe there’s an ocean of blue,
With whom I can relate to!
Maybe in those depths of afflictions
I can find my divine benediction!

Let me struggle
In these swamps of disaster.
Let me find my way
Against these Howling gales
.

Till then wait for me
If you are already through.
Till then breath in the valley
And enjoy the view!

Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life

The Black Iron

He has been bent,
He has been forged,
He has been hammered like a
hot iron to obey the blacksmith.

How much he can take
Before his soul rages embers?
How far he can go
With his bones chiselled to weakness?

But fortitude is his strongest suit,
No fire can turn him into weak ashes,
Nothing can shake his unabated spirit,
‘cause he is an iron who absorbs thousand blows!

Coffee with Quotes

Westworld page twitter

Some people see the ugliness in this world, the disarray. I was taught to see the beauty. But I was taught a lie. And when I saw the world for what it really was, I realised how little beauty there was in it. – Dolores (Westworld)


How true it is with humans, forget about machines.

Our eyes may see chaos right now but our hearts are not designed to act that way. It may tremble a bit but it will never forget what it has learnt, it has learnt to see the beauty.

It is born as a poet and even when it dies it brings poetic flashes of our lives in the form of emotional memories.

Maybe this melody stays with the soul forever , maybe we are not sure about this but there are certain things about our species which is quite magical, beyond science to explain.


Another day has passed, a new morning in our lives. Our struggle continues, our fight continues. Some of us will perish, some of us will survive but our hearts will never stop to see the beauty, though the world may not have it.


Stay safe, Spread happiness, embrace beauty!

Hang on My Patience

Self clicked

Sailing precariously
On the surface.
Stuck in the dark swamps
Of restlessness.
Intimidated by the howls
Of my raging heartbeat.
Oh my patience!
Hang in there On the fringes
‘cause it is you my Angel
Who will show me the light
At the brink of
my dwindling hope
At the far end of my
Howling nightmare!

A Kid in a Pandemic

A Frolicking Spirit
Overflowing with curiosity
Is amazed to see
Our languished faces, constantly

Why are you So sore,
Why are You so worried?
Look at my enchanting eyes
Look at my baby steps

My toddling courage
Is simmering with hope
As I see the world
Full of relentless possibilities

Impossible’ is just a word
I am beginning to mould
I am your hero
I am you reason

‘cause my giggling joy
Is a magical charm
Extinguishing you miseries
When I flaunt my tiny arms

Life of a Sapling

Self clicked

A small sapling breathes
Giggles with life around
Blends with the soul of soil
Which Cleanses it with holy water

Showered with blessings
Of the photons
Cuddles the tiny droplets
Floating in the morning air

An innocent child
Looks up directly at sunshine
Grows up to become a sage
While it’s roots store wisdom

A selfless sage in meditation
Blows life from within
And surrender timber
Even after death.

A Long Walk

Self clicked

Far from home
With my spirits unscathed
I embarked upon a journey
Uphill, on a Callous road

As time elapsed
Each step brought confusion
My fatigue birthed illusion
As I struggled down the road

Then Someone joined me
A creature, selflessly
A pillar to lift my spirit
A dog shared my ordeal

Our steps synchronised
Our spirits became one
Our faces glowed with pride
And we hardly cared for summit
