Gratitude

Do you see what I see,
When I see through the lens,
The lens that magnifies
The goodness amidst chaos?

Do you feel what I feel
When I am Cleansed
With the potion of kindness,
Ignoring bruises of toxic thoughts?

Yes, I am transformed,
Hammered with feathery blows
The touch of Gratitude
Which reveals the treasures I have!

I am grateful to all the people who gave so much to me in spite of my ignorance. I am grateful to all the things nature has given to me in spite of my apathy.


Though I will never be satisfied and desire for more because it is my weakness to be seduced by worldly things. And for that, forgive me. I am just a mere soul trying to outshine the dark!

In the Present

When you get so engrossed in something which can either be a job in hand or the thing which you love to do most, you lose track of time.

Or in other words you don’t feel the passing of time and you hardly care about it’s existence when you are lost in your current job. You exist in the ‘Now’.

This is living in the present when you don’t worry about the future and don’t regret over your past. This is how a life should be lived.

A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future – Albert Einstein

Liberation

It is not appropriate to determine age of a man in years, the age of a man should be determined by the number of sacrifices he make.

From an ineffable symphony
To a cacophonic illusion
The world I attach to
Is my spirit’s confusion.

Through out my life
I laugh with my blind ego.
And when there is time
I refuse to let it go.

How pity it is
We lose our true identity.
With what we have,
We take nothing to eternity!

To a spiritual realm
From a material chaos
It’s a joyous liberation
From bodily tribulations!

Earthly Loop

Here I am flourishing once more,
Fluttering in the earthly loop.
Echoing through the day,
Existing for one more day!

Bathing in the morning glow,
Breathing life which eventually grows
With every breath I take,
With every tiring step I take!

Oblivious of the destination,
I carry on to that path unknown.
With a dream in my restless heart,
To get that calming sleep at last!

Those Soldiers

Up, on those mountains,
At those freezing heights
Everything trembles
Under those heavy feet.
Those unabated spirits
Roar against every bullet
Which pierce their skin
Obliterate when they touch
Their mighty souls!
Every blow that dent
Their bodies, melt when they
Kiss their relentless grit.


O Mighty soldiers!
Your love for the motherland
Flows deep in the veins
Of the nation you guard.
O Brave soldiers!
Your love for the motherland,
Breathe deep in those muddy trenches
Where you sleep at last!
O Brave warriors!
You are an epitome of sacrifice,
Your tale will be told till we survive!

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!

Coffee with 1000 Followers

The morning comes with a new beginning, new hope, more inspiration and more positive vibes.


I couldn’t have asked more from the wonderful wordpress community for giving me 1000 followers. Let me sip my coffee which I prefer with sugar and milk and settle down with this amazing feeling, cheers everyone!


The journey so far has been more about downs than ups. I started blogging back in 2015, wrote for 2-3 months and then the gap of almost 5 years, got stuck in a rat race and struggles of life.

I am still struggling but maybe getting to see the bigger picture. You see I use the word ‘ maybe’ a lot because I am so uncertain about things. Many will think how confused I am though they will agree that-


Life is all about uncertainty. One moment you are full of happiness, the other you struggle with grief.


What I am on the scale of cosmos? Nothing, just a whisk of time fading with every single second.

So I prefer to flow with this wind and expecting every possibility of life to face.


This is a new beginning, a new challenge, a new opportunity to grow.
