Collateral Beauty of Death

Certain losses can never be covered up in your entire lifespan, neither can you quantify the loss, nor can you control the magnitude of the aching heart that you feel due to the loss, it just stays day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year ; only thing that changes from days to years is how you get used to the loss you are bearing in your heart.

Father ✨❣️

Often have I heard in my life, be worthy enough that you don’t have to introduce yourself, your deeds do the needful for you.

May sound all fanciful and not reality, but I exactly know of someone, about whom I have heard more than he, himself could talk about himself, and way more than what my fine sense could witness. Continue reading “Father ✨❣️”

Sprawling Emotions 

Today, I come up with something that each one faces in their lives, the level may vary, but sure everyone does experience it – Emotions! 

Emotions, are something that make you alive, that make you a living being, emotions are not just a human trait, emotions are something that every living being capable of thinking projects. On one end, emotions are a conduct of life, they sensitize you towards your surroundings. On the other end, a rush of emotions, is like a gushing wave that sometimes comes with so much triumph that it forces you to be on your knees. It is one of the most horrendous and eerie feeling, that your emotions overriding your life. (Though, very few people realize this.) 

Human mind is the most manipulative thing, that I have learnt about and experienced in my life, it can manipulate you to bend yourself according to your emotions, be it love, anger, envy, joy, fear, ecstasy, annoyance, and all those varied emotion that a living being is capable of projecting.

Wonder why we talking about this? Because I have seen a foreplay of emotions in different people, acting out on surroundings differently. We, as individuals, may not want to behave in the particular manner that we must be behaving, but we end up doing that, cause the balance between the rationality and emotions has been disrupted. For instance, Ego that takes birth from various negative emotions that an individual experiences, is root cause of our actions, these days. Most of us are being led by the false sense of pride instilled in us, which is a response to our fast pacing, stimulating external environment. Everyone is running in a relay, to get to an unknown destination, but wherever, we all are striving to reach, we want to be better than the rest. Due to this, rationality is hurled deeply, cause our emotions are on a high, we forget to see the practical angles, these emotions, which make us living, they then become a weapon of destruction. Ego then kills more bonds, than the death might do apart. An individual’s emotions takes so much power over their mind, that they start feeling, what they are doing is perpetually right, and that’s when the trap of emotions completes. 

Emotions, though are free flowing, they come naturally, but how much power you want to give to which emotion controls you, holds you and defines you. You feed your negative emotions and do not rationalize it, it will demolish the girdle. We should be aware of the emotions that we are experiencing, and then watch if our actions are emotion led or rational.

Life is too short to let our negative emotions override us, and destroy beautiful things and moments. A lot of us may not realize the worth of these things today, but once lost may never come back.

Calmness of Waves : A Metaphor 🌊

In wide expanse of whiteness of water mingling with those of the clouds and a stretch of sand where eyes can see , each one is lost in their own world . Has a different definition of life , all of them so want to join hands , but the waves are sweeping them off. The waves are just homologous to the thoughts a person goes through , the rolling ride of the ongoing thoughts in our mind , Every being is striving for something or another , they are living a desire they have for themselves. Somewhere in so much beauty all a mind asks for is to make peace with itself. 

The essence of life, not lies in fulfilling all these desires but in making peace with the way one seeks to fulfill it. The tranquility lies in to be comfortable in your own skin, just as the way you are. Like the calmness in the gushing waves, makes it beautiful, a calm mind is an ultimate weapon to bring out the exuberant desires and achieve them.

Achieving a calm mind in this turbulent surroundings is Grueling. Someone very dear to me, once told me, 

“To Every Stimulus there is a response, but between every stimulus and response, there is a choice, and the choice is entirely yours.” 

Often, in our lives we levy the burden of our actions and reactions to the circumstances. Circumstances were just the stimulus , but your reaction to it was the choice you made to respond to it. It’s rightly said, our choices decide the person we become. 

The simpler it may seem in theory, the more strenuous it is in practice. Human Dynamics have conditioned us in such a way, that to every action, we do give a reaction. But, the day we realize that not all things require a reaction, be it internally or externally, will be the day when our mind will become as peaceful and yet euphoric as these waves.

Art of Moderation

“Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide.”
~ Marcus Tullius Cicero


One of these days, when i was having this conversation with my sibling, I happened to say very instinctively that, most of us live our lives in extremities. From just an inborn statement, which almost stood null and void, I fell in this line of thought of the art of moderation. Most of us do not understand the art of moderation, neither are we able to strike a perfect balance and understand subtleties of life. Our life unfolds as a Drama in various stages, and all of us have a role to play. As we progress with every new stage we have to take on a new role; and every new role comes with a challenge. Suddenly amidst everything you see yourself battling several roles together; you are a son/daughter, brother/ sister, Girlfriend/boyfriend or Spouse, an employee or an aspiring student, a friend and various other multifaceted you. But, are we able to do justice to all these roles that we have to play? That’s exactly where maintaining the appropriate balance is required. I often witness, people being engrossed in one role and neglecting the rest.

Aspirations and ambitions are great, they are a driving force in many people’s life, but for some they completely forget it is just a part of life, they forget to see the bigger picture, and a role takes a toll on them so much that they become ignorant to the things that need their attention equally, if not more. They are so self-absorbed, and stretch too far in life, not realizing that one day they’ll find, ten years have got behind them, and they’ve missed the starting gun. They forget the romantic in them and just run in this rat race. Whereas there are a few who live in an elated state of bliss, a feeling that they relate to love, stimulating pleasures and adventures in life. For them life is all about having fun and enjoying. They believe in living in the moment and embracing life as it comes. They fail to understand life isn’t a bed of roses; there are dark sides of life too. Living in the moment sounds fancy but not practical.Destiny does exist, but no one ever achieved something without working for it.
Some are caught in the extremes of career, some in their love life, some in their adventures, some might race for money. Some may even be stuck in satisfying and making others happy, such people have high need for approval and recognition, which outshines them. Some have their extremes of self-monitoring to an extent that they leave behind the joys of life. You go after one thing and miss out on the others; the state of equilibrium seems like a farfetched reality for the human mind. And it’s completely okay to not maintain a perfect equilibrium, but sometimes the imbalance costs us way more than our capacity to think, time slips by our hands and all we are left with certain regrets. Maybe we pondered over fun so much, that we lost our precious years of making a career or maybe we were so driven by the problems of our daily life that we missed on the little joys. Not many go on the track of living in extremes and realize that they are leaving something essential far behind.
Living life in extremes gives us greater stimulation in life, but a greater stimulation will never appease us of our desires, it will actually increase our appetite for them. It will leave us in the state of imbalance externally as well as internally. Be moderate in order to taste the joys of life in abundance.
Even though, I am a novice in carving order out of chaos, but the few things that I do to strike that equilibrium in life includes reflecting on oneself deeply, and examining the aspects of life that need balance. Introspecting and being honest to oneself is one but changing oneself by stepping outside the comfort zone is another. It takes a lot of effort to break the strands of complacency, but it’s better than regretting later. Setting goals and preparing yourself to achieve them can help you triumph balance. Be kind to yourself at all times, because balance won’t feel good if you are cruel to yourself in creating it. Lastly connect more to people who can challenge the demons inside you, who can show you the dark sides of you and who will celebrate the joys of little accomplishments in life.
Let’s move towards attaining a more balanced human life 😉
