Next Climb

Something triggered

What’s this upheaval of emotions?

There is a ray

that suddenly lights up

the dark nooks

And I see all the mess

that still needs to be cleansed inside

And within seconds the ray

fades into nothingness

It’s the beginning of my next Climb !

No Time Travel

Time Travelling is possible. You can be transported to a different world through your mind as well as your screens. ISN’T IT?

When you shut them off, be it your mind or your device , it takes seconds to come back to the earth-  the real world.

On a serious note, ofcourse, mindfulness has taken a back seat in the present era as distractions are innumerable. I read in a book that our ‘ Will Power ‘ is a finite source and gets consumed big time when we try to bring back the attention to what we are actually doing.

Mindless scrolling during work hours ,evening time, night time, morning time is impacting our efficiency and productivity. In  a survey ,it was found that biggest distraction during work hours is not sleep, food or sex, but the constant need to check social media ,watch a movie, surf the net and listen to music . So, how can we help ourselves from falling into fathomless pit of the web and not while away the precious time?

1) Be aware of what you are doing. Knowing that your actions and habits are flawed is the first step towards changing them.

2) Locking away your mobile phone will not help. Rather understand and implement the power of daily routine and rituals.

a) Set time limit for yourself according to the task and don’t use mobile unless the work is complete.

b) Keep your cellphone on mute. It will aid a lot to pacify the urge to check your phone time and again.

c) Give yourself 10 minutes break to surf the web and check notififications after every 3 hrs.

3) Look at the longer vision always and remember why you started this all at the first place( to be productive) to keep your self motivated.

4) Whenever there is a craving for gb ( giga bytes) consumption, give your brain some other task that can help you in some other way. For instance, go and take a small walk,  read the budget, complete some pending task, ask a long lost colleague how he is doing. You will be satisfied and at the same time surprised about how much one can do in small chunks.

5) When you just need a break, just close your eyes and relax. But stay away from electronic gadgets. ( It’s difficult. But, you should do it, you know it’s the right thing.)

6) While doing useful work on these electronic devices, be mindful of not getting distracted by some not so relevant apps and notifications.

7) If messages are not urgent, try replying  to most of them at a common time and not when the phone beeps.

We feel 24 hours in a day are less and  now we know it’s not true. Our habits can even make 13 months in a year. Try sleeping at the right time and getting up at 5 not 7 in the morning and you will get 1 month bonus.

Virtual world is not real. Realworld is real.

So, stop the ‘Time Travel’. Be mindful of the present. Begin the ‘Deep Work’.

Student of Life

Can you  even take credit of being wiser with age? May be we are good students but don’t you feel like Life has been an excellent teacher.

Is there really something you can be proud of? One might appreciate the beauty of flower but where the flower would have been  if there was no seed at the first place. You might feel confident about being an artist and may have garnered compliments from all quarters, but you must have been bestowed with something at the first place. Only then possibly you could have honed it and reached where you are.

What can we possibly take credit of or be proud of? I feel sometimes life is all about gratitude. The moment one starts being egoistic, there begins a downward spiral.

Each day is a lesson. Life is a great teacher. At the end of the day, we just ought to be good students.

Life is too short!

There are fears, flaws, insecurities, failures

But at the end of the day

You need to make them about

Courage, Love, Peace and Joy

Because Life  is going to put you in situations

Where you will have you to face the demons

And you will face them eventually

But make sure that at the end of every challenge

You embrace Life

You embeace Courage, Love, Peace and Joy

Life is too short to be lived otherwise…

.

This is a very basic write up. I know this isn’t something new.

I recently faced a challenging situation and after that feat , all my focus was on did I look like a failure to others. However I did forget that I did something extraordinary then as I had pushed my limits. So, it was all about my courage and eventually the peace of mind.

So, this write up is just a reminder that in the end just enjoy life don’t torture yourself by concocting stories that doesn’t cross anyone else’s mind but make your life hell. Appreciate the Love, Joy, Peace and Courage in your life…

Choices

I know

I can’t talk to you

But it isn’t an abyss yet

Because 

I still can talk about you

.

.

In adversities

When there is no light

I know I can become the light

.

.

It is just that

Options can be created

And choices can be made

even when it seems to be a cul-de- sac

Heartbroken

It came with a lot of force this time

I just stood there

I couldn’t think

I had this water bottle in my hand

I started to gulp in water

and I couldn’t stop

because I didn’t know

what else to do

It took me some courage

to gather myself together

to enter the room

Which I eventually had to

I entered the room

I entered the room heartbroken

Things had changed in a second

I was heart broken

It was so intense that my heart literally pained

But I was more aware this time

Aware that it was just a bad day

And that this dark day is just a phase

Aware that even though I don’t see the brighter side right now

But there is

.

.

I kept on thinking about the incident

ever later that day

Still it did bother me in bits and tits

.

.

There’s still a long road

that I need to walk

which heads towards calm and peace !

Climb

I know the view from the top is breathtaking

But let’s talk about the climb

Shall we?

Let’s reminisce about

the days we are lost

Let’s talk about

the Self doubts we have

after a setback

the demons we face

the courage we show

the failures we embrace

the lessons we learn

Despite the good and the bad

We keep on continuing

Continuing the climb

Let’s talk about the real climbs

that happen not just after the last leap

but all the days and everyday

Let’s talk about the healing this time 

Let’s make the process precious.

It’s a general a thought from my side that why do we try to cover up the failures,  the flaws, in other words the truth and real. Why can’t we create a place where we talk about these things.

Let’s focus on the healing more than the healed.

Fate

Fate. What is it? Is it a camouflage to hide our failures or is it real? Is it an illusion or can it really make a story go from rag to riches?

I have never really felt strongly about fate. I mean, how can you hold some stars accountable for what is happening in your life.

But now as I am living each day, I am coming to terms with the fact that there is something much beyond the thinking of my mind. There are times no matter how hard you try, luck is not in your favour and sometimes you get too lucky and yet on other days, things are just as ‘normal’ as you had expected.

I have been observing it recently,  that whatever happens in our lives, we link it to winning and losing or may be happiness and sadness or worthiness and unworthiness . However, it is just meant to mould us in a certain way, to make us ready for the future needs,and just to learn or unlearn things.

Recently,  there have been three incidents in my professional life, which are quite appalling,  yet neither of these incidents happened because of someone’s inadequacy or  fault. It was just fate happening. And when you see such things happening, which are beyond  anyone’s control, you finally surrender to the Higher Power. You shut all the doors and open the door of your heart and what you feel within for those few moments is priceless. You just start embracing life.

You just start believing in this ‘Fate’. 

Fate , be it good or bad , teaches you how to take everything in your stride and accept the life.
