A Little Greed

Greed is often considered as bad or wrong , in fact it is one of the seven deadly sins we are told to stay away from to lead a better or clean life.


But is it really so bad? I mean it is mostly the driving force of anyone’s life. But again, it can lead to wrong path and could bring chaos.


For instance, if any king or dictator desires absolute power he could bring chaos for the entire world.


On the other hand it can affect the world in a positive way. A person who aspires to become famous through his talent or good work then that greed is good and justified.


If we have a little greed to become or achieve something and work hard towards it, if everyone becomes active that way, renouncing laziness, it could do wonders for an economy.


I mean excess of everything is harmful and to lead an active and balanced life we should drive ourselves with Little Greed .


There is importance of both negative and positive energy in our universe. What brings balance or makes life possible to thrive is the balance of both energies and not the excess of any one.

The Colours of Life

Life draped in colours,
Shines with every breath,
Beats with unwanted grief,
Paints a bigger picture,
And those who see it
Through their soul,
Truly fulfil a greater purpose
In the scheme of cosmos.
An order in the great
Chaos !

Life is not only sufferings but also the pleasures we embrace in the form of Colours of Life.

The memories of good times with our people , our presence in the shelter of nature, all of it fill our life with colours like a beautiful painting evoking emotions that touches our soul.


In fact, life is all about enjoying the magnificence of colours through our eyes, which is only possible if we stay in the moment and enjoy every second we are gifted with.

Happy Holi to all …

Where is his Heaven?

There’s a drought of hope,
And only sufferings bloom ,
With the blood of the innocents,
In the middle of the war!


A soldier lifts his bruised head,
From the rubble of his land,
Which was once a paradise,
Now a barren land of chaos.

His dreams soaked in tears,
His sufferings healed with smoke,
He limps for his motherland,
He lives and fight for his motherland.

Where is his heaven?

Maybe, deep inside his soul
Reside the love of his people,
Though his body walk on embers,
But his soul Is already in paradise!

Reasons We Live For

Beauty of nature stops alluring him, money becomes useless to him, pleasures of every sort feel like a curse to him, do you know why? Because he has only few days to live, he is suffering from a rare disease, he doesn’t want to wait to suffer more, he wants to die right now.


But wait, something stops him , he is hit by a magical charm . He can see those brown eyes , that shined like pebbles touched by divine hands. Those eyes chasing the flight of a bird who wants to fly high, those eyes chasing dream and is now watching at him. His little child, his life that will continue to thrive even after his death.


And so he has to live for his kid, his beloved, his people who love him, who depend on him , who are his only solace in his world of sufferings, the reasons he should live for. He has to prepare them , giving them wings ,so that when his time will come they would be ready to live without him .


Life continues to wander in confusion until sufferings come and the reasons become clear.


All the material things which we achieve or aspire to achieve give nothing but momentary joy that vanishes as soon as we face the real test of life, sufferings, failures, losses.

Broken, Persevere, Rise

Broken
You’re knocked on the anvil,
Blows after blows until you break
Into pieces or crushed into powder,
Until your dreams bleed to death !

Persevere
Pick your pieces and hold them
Together with your sweat,
Lift your head and crawl on earth, But
never give up until you lose your breath

Rise
Muscles creaking to reach,
The greatness hidden beneath!
Your ‘Will’ forged in fire of Belief,
No Pain can melt man of steel!

Division of Life

Life divided in moments,
The moments that tame us,
Through various strings ,
Tying us like a puppet.

Strings of sorrow,
Drag us towards pain.
Strings draped in desires,
Pull us towards failure.

But there’s a string of strength
From a shimmering unknown.
Pull it with your will,
And master the strings of fate !

Procrastination, an unavoidable Curse

Almost all of us are suffering with this disease called as procrastination. No matter how hard we try we can’t help ourselves to get rid of this disease , yes ,it should be called as a disease. It’s like the most dominating code embedded in our memory.



What is the biggest mistake you make in life? Buddha replied- The biggest mistake you make in life is when you think you have time.



It’s like we delay our most precious work and leave it in the mercy of time. And after sometime we are punished by it. The situation after this becomes so frustrating That our regrets almost kill us.


The funny part is that we know we are doing it wrong but still we can’t help ourselves. It’s like we become slaves of this very tricky phenomenon. Writers are plagued by this, dreamers are crippled by this and it’s tough to get out of this.



Is there any way to get rid of procrastination?



The first step towards this is to know that only ‘Now’ is real and your past or future is imaginary. You can’t control your past and future but you have all the opportunities to make your present as fulfilling as possible.


Everything you do now will automatically affect your future and if you will allow your past to affect your present then it will always give you disappointment and negative vibes.


Laziness is a sleeping giant that eats your precious future, stay away from this ,otherwise you are going to become mad (affects your mental health) in the near future. You can get rid of this with discipline, waking up early in the morning and engaging in half an hour of workout, can create a perfect setup for a successful day. Making this as your daily goal can work wonders for your overall goal.


You are born to follow the path of Karma, your Karma to make a positive change in this world. It starts with you and ends with the happiness of the people around you. Your existence is precious so not only follow your Karma but also worship it .


Even a small change made by you can do miracles for the world, so never ever think that your work is insignificant.



Just do it….

Importance of Mental Health

In this fast paced world ,it has become a monumental challenge to take out time for personal well being. People are facing problems like anxiety, high blood pressure , hyper tension and other physical problems. The world today is so much engrossed in their work, study and other endeavours that it is taking a toll […]

How to Comprehend God?

Something which gives you positivity, something that makes you feel good , something which cannot be explained but makes you feel empowered.


Your parents, friends ,animals , nature and everything in your surrounding have an element of that super power which gives you joy and strength. You can call that thing God or maybe something else but whatever it is it cannot be explained in words.


For me nature teaches you humility, it gives you calmness, It takes away negativity of every kind from your heart and mind. It is nothing less than God to me. Maybe I don’t believe in conventional way to worship God But if you respect nature you have to respect that as well. Maybe there is a hidden meaning behind it.


Kindness is the biggest virtue and if there is some kind of order in this world then it is only because of qualities like that. Your ego should never conflict with kindness and no matter what the situation is ,you should always try to be humble otherwise you might regret later.


To be more precise ,you should follow the path of your Good karma which is your biggest worship , it will never fail you and it will always come back at you in some or the other way in some positive form.

The Year of Losses

It is the inherent quality of humans to look for something to cheer about but there has been very few things to celebrate this year.

One year ago I wrote about the horrific year which had gone by because of pandemic, little did I know that a much bigger storm awaited us. The Delta variant brought us on our knees, exposed our health facilities and took away many of our loved ones.

I lost few of my relatives and I have seen their families finding it difficult to get back on track. It is a testing time for entire humanity but ‘hope’ is something We would never forget even on our death bed.

Each of us is bruised right now,
But that would not hinder us
From finding our feet once more,
To stand again and look for sunshine

I am not expecting anything in the future or in the upcoming year and it would be more prudent to stay in this moment a bit more and feel each second which is going by in joy.

Lets make our ‘now ‘ as beautiful ,as joyous as possible. There is nothing we can gain with hate and we would never know how much time we have. So our each act is extremely crucial and can make a difference in a positive way in this world.

Let’s be responsible and do it together….
