Pathway

There is a pathway

that can bridge the gap between us,

‘Divinity’ is where it leads to.

.

.

I have always felt that the last resort should actually be the first one in most situations. I believe in the power of surrender a lot. When things are not going your way, don’t waste your time on perverse things rather try to connect with the universe as it has possible answers to everything. It can provide you with the clarity that you have been looking for.

Slowing Down

I am slowing down

I no longer need a complete sentence

Just a word is enough to make my spirits high

I can look at a leaf for hours together

and marvel at its creation

I want to know what silence sounds like

I have begun to notice my breathing

I carry the sounds of morning, noon and evening in my backpack

I take my time to wake up

There is no Rush …

I am slowing down

I am slowing down !

.

..

This is a totally raw piece, like most of my pieces are. It’s what I am actually doing these days.

Tell me are you in a rush? Or you are slowing down or mishmash of both?

Baggage

When anything or anyone enters in one’s life, it has its own baggage. Nothing or no one is going to step into your life, unless you are ready for it and its baggage.

The people who become a part of your life have their own dreams, insecurities and thoughts and till the point you are ready to endure, tolerate and believe, they will keep on standing on the periphery of your life. Not everyone glides smoothly in your life. They push your limits and stretch your boundaries. And yes, they enter because now the time has come where you have to slowly move into the next stage of life. Furthermore, you are ready  and also, need to stretch the boundary of yours.

There are people whose progress is subtle and slow and that is all right because these people may not be ready to handle the baggage that comes along and as a result, their process is slower.

For instance, you wish to become a renowned writer, but being a writer is not just limited to writing. Writing is associated with a plethora of things such as networking ability, ability to handle criticism, success not messing up your head etc. So, in most cases, despite having the skill sometimes, things take time because as I said earlier everything comes with a lot of things attached. And Life is preparing you to handle it all.

Just have faith and the thing you can do is to be more you with each passing day.

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

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.

Second Guessing

I’m elated today after seeing my improvement. Today, I was in a situation where I had to give a speech. It was an impromptu one. My voice trembled a little bit through the speech. I wouldn’t shy away from saying that I was nervous. I was but it wasn’t nervousness out of fear, more of out of excitement.

Now, coming to the theme of my speech, it was quite different from what others said. When the event got over and I got some time to recapitulate things in my mind, I found myself second guessing my speech. But this time, I didn’t really let it hit me hard. Rather, I just responded to myself by saying ‘ I know that it’s just a pattern of mine, where I doubt my decisions, my work , my opinions etc. ‘ I was aware this time. So, it didn’t affect me much.

Morever, whatever happens, be it good or bad has to happen. It’s how your path is supposed to be. And, that  will make you what you are actually meant to become.

So, go ahead and embrace all days. Also, as said by Rupi Kaur , poet of Indian origin. ‘Healing is a daily process.’

Is that Letter for me?

It’s a very short story unlike its title.

There is this kid and lately, I have been seeing a folded white paper in his hand and that is escalating my curiosity levels. He is keeping that paper very carefully. Rather, I would say extremely mindfully.

Our relationship is like Tom and Jerry. We kind of annoy and test each other’s limit . He is kind of short tempered and I ,on the other hand, am a very patient person( the age factor maybe).  I just observe and smile while he aggressively struggles to elucidate his point.

Being in his company is like listening to a riveting tale. I look forward to it. He is 6 years younger to me . Though he is very mature, yet I often make fun of him saying he is just a kid. He retorts by showing his Driver License and other ids as a proof of being not a kid and that actually cracks me up.

I don’t know why I feel this way but that folded white paper is surely addressed to me.

He is just waiting for the right moment to give it.

Heartfelt

As I am growing

I am learning about myself even more

I am not judging myself just observing

I don’t take things personally

I am understanding myself even better

I am analysing what’s right, wrong or neutral

I am realising when the times are bad , it’s all about you and your life lessons and not about anybody else

Simplest things, mindfulness, nature and bonds

are the elixir of a happy life

Could I get some more time

few more days and some more nights

To write a heart felt Letter to myself…!

Don’t make it personal !

When you are an empath, you take things too personally. And it actually isn’t good for the peace of the mind. People have different perspectives and so there is a high probability that their opinion won’t match yours. It’s Ok to accept that. Don’t get convinced easily of the fact that if the other felt in a certain way, you should also feel the same.

It’s good to have different types of people in your life, but the point is if everyone around you is very different from you, you end up doubting your own self. You worry that your thinking is not matching with theirs and if you are sensitive, it can hurt your morale sometimes. You need to know that there are definitely your kind of people in this world, but they aren’t with you currently. So, don’t question that unique spark of yours. Accept and appreciate what you stand for.

Let me share one case, in my close circle, there are 3 friends of mine who are very choosy about their photographs and they keep on telling me that I am a terrible photographer and that they are quite good at photography,  but the reality is,  I easily accept all my pictures irrespective of how I look in them. However, they are very fussy about it. Now, if I take their opinion into consideration, it questions my photography skills whereas in reality, it’s their attitude that is different when it comes to their pictures.

So, I need to know that I need not take it personally. No one is right or wrong. We are not on the same page when it comes to certain things.

Lastly, don’t put in peril the peace of your mind by comparing your opinion with others. Don’t try to make other’s happy at the expense of your own happiness. Your opinion matters. Your decisions matters. Just because you are with a different set of people, who think differently, it shouldn’t make you question your own self. Embrace it all.
