Redefining Myself

that-which-you-call-your-soul-or-spirit-is-your-consciousness-and-that-which-you-call-free-will-is-quote-1

No longer can I allow the world to define me, I need to have my own definition,the one that is written by me and suits me the best.

No longer will I choose what I like over what is right for me as I know the consequences of the first.
Choosing an attractive and easy path can provide me temporary pleasure but in the long run it will turn out to be a just another ordinary life that the masses live, trying to satisfy themselves with less.

No longer do I need to impress anyone for it requires acting according to others’ preferences (being diplomatic, fake and pretentious).
Changing myself for others only causes suffocation and discomfort.Thus I will change only if it is essential for my growth as a human being.

No longer can I allow the external environment and its vivid factors to affect my peace for I cannot control anyone’s actions and behaviour.
All I can do is programme my mind (to accept/ignore and face) , choosing not to create internal disturbance.

No longer does it matter what others think or say about me for it describes their thought process.
All that actually matters to me is what I think about others because that is what will be first created in me and will therefore reflect my personality and affect my vibrations.

No longer do I need to take part in any such argument that holds no sense for such fights lead to no conclusion and end up wasting time.
I will speak only if necessary.

No longer do I need to prove myself or my way of righteousness for everyone has a different definition of being right and I need to respect it.
I am only accountable to God and supposed to give advices and suggestions to others only if I have stepped in their shoes before.

No longer do I need to say ‘Yes’ to every distraction that has nothing to do with my goal or its journey.
It is difficult for me to say ‘No’ but then I understand prioritizing needs is always more important.Moreover if things or people who deserve to be a part of my life will stay forever undoubtedly.

No longer do I need to hold expectations from anyone else as it certainly leads to disappointments at some point of time.
The only person who deserves to fulfil my expectations is myself.

No longer will I make contradictory statements and renege from my own words.
Since I have to be powerful and meaningful therefore I have to learn to stay true to my words.

No longer will I make my accomplishments a source of my happiness.
Achievements are important to me only because of the fact that every milestone crossed provides me with a new insight paving a way for another exciting journey.

No longer will I pass my time in wasteful analyzing for I really need to work hard to be the creator of my destiny and make things fall exactly the way I dream.
All it requires is to utilize each and every second of my life fruitfully.

No longer will I slog or trudge along the journey to my destination for it will only create misery and unhappiness.
I will find bliss in my work and will never quit.

No longer will I carry the baggage of hurt and pain in my heart for it is too heavy.
It is not that easy to drop it for I do not forgive easily but I have to do it for I have far more important things in my life to aim and focus.

No longer will I think twice before helping anyone about what comes back.
I will continue going out of my way for others because their smile and happiness is important to me.

No longer will I get emotionally attached to people and objects around me for I wish to be in the position of a ‘giver’ forever – always emitting love and kindness.
This requires great strength and sometimes not allowing the heart to fall but I think I will be able to do it for I understand its benefits.Moreover I also know how to take energy and love from God and so that will make me stronger,happier and independent.


I know all that I have mentioned above will give me a hard time but I also know that I will be able to practice it for I am a ‘solution oriented’ individual deserving only what is best for ‘me’!

Platonic Love

main-qimg-1cff23363893e01e011a852d3c97500b-c

(Dedicated to a far away friend)

This time it is all so miraculous
Experiencing love without its silly symptoms!
There is neither any butterflies in my stomach
Nor any giddiness in the head.
Even romantic tunes prefer silence
When we exchange
Our harmonious thoughts!

Similar opinions and views
On every subject
Leaves me amazed everytime;
As I get mesmerised
By your ever growing intelligence
And extraordinary charm.

Thinking about our vivid conversations
I cannot help smiling.
It is worth noticing
How tagging it all as unrealistic
You choose to play safe,
Not letting the fire in me
To grow wild!

I appreciate the clear line
You drew between us;
To prevent either of us
From getting too attached!

Sharing the same level
Of compatibility and understanding;
Blooms love and concern
Which is sans expectations,
Free of terms and conditions.

In the awe of our companionship,
I enjoy my own space and freedom
From those restraining relations,
Where love resorts
To wooing and courting!

Going beyond friendship
Creates the special element.
I wish I could fly
However your wise words
Highlighting my priorities
Keeps me focussed and grounded.

Even if Destiny
Does not hold our meet;
I will still be happy
Seeing you achieve great feats!

 

One Lovely Blog Award

I feel great pleasure accepting this award.It is seriously unbelievable for it has not even been three months since I started blogging and it is my fourth award.I really feel blessed and great to be a part of this beautiful blogging community.Being a part of this world,has turned me laconic as now I enjoy reading others’ blogs more than posting on my own blog.Moreover I have come across several like minded people through blogging which is something that makes me extremely grateful to God.
I would like to thank a mysterious blogger who found me worthy of this award.I am sure you will be impressed by visiting his blog www.shiningtheory.com/ and knowing the different perspective he holds on life.
As an obligation I again have to mention some facts about myself.This time it is really difficult for my last award post and few recent posts already reveal so much about me.Anyways,keeping it short,I hope I mention something new about me so that it doesn’t sound boring.

1.My hobbies are reading and playing piano.
2.I enjoy riding bike and playing cricket(though not really good at it).
3.I am a big foodie and so I am never on diet.
4.I think I have a good sense of judgement especially when it comes to people(leaving aside my last affair where love turned me blind..hahaha)
5.I get easily impressed by intelligent men(mostly in terms of academics).
6.I have two conflicting faces.One that says ‘I want to live an anonymous life(so that I don’t get swayed by the appreciation) while leaving an everlasting impact in people’s life who are suffering and struggling’.’Second one says ‘I want so much fame that wherever I go,people look forward to me giving my examples(all for good reasons).’
7.There are as such no distractions in my life but the fear of getting distracted makes me more distracted.

Choosing Happiness

5a4478ed59587ea90c8d1ae2b06f70fa

Equating happiness with achievements
Gives momentary joy to our temperament.
This equation acts as a temporary inspiration
Pushing us to continue the irrational motion.
Unreasonably blood pressure goes up,
Stress levels crosses all bearable limits
In the attempt to attain
The Ultimate Happiness.

Finding comfort in people’s appreciation
Makes us proud and dependent.
Breaking us down badly
Into anxiety and depression
When people resort to silence!

Assigning happiness to a goal
Is acting like a fool
For postponing it is useless
When the urgent need of contentment
Is in the present!

All I realize is that Happiness
Is not a feeling but a state.
Trying to maintain it
Is not God’s will
But only our choice.

Success is only worth celebrating
If no sadness prevails.
Enjoying the journey
With an upward curve on our faces
And Crossing the hurdles
With unshakable determination
Will eventually open our minds
To accept the innumerable reasons
That give us joy
Along this jerky ride;
Thereby helping us to evolve
Into A blissful being!

 

Exploring Love

473a5aae3243f05801c02771bc6defe0

For a while,I became narrow minded as I tried equating love with wooing and courting.What made me disillusioned was that there was always a desire for lust from the other side.Unfortunately,I too started enjoying such thoughts for a while.However,thankfully,God saved me from acting on those thoughts.A few acquaintances made me wonder if love is only true when we express it by being physical!

Nevertheless,what I feel now is that love is actually never about such cravings and if it is then in my opinion,it is never true love but ‘body love’.I don’t like when young men approach me saying I have ‘seductive eyes’ or a ‘perfect figure’.Their comments do make me feel good for a moment but I also wish if they can look beyond the ‘looks’ to know the real me or my soul.Maybe I am abnormal and very serious,unwilling to give in to temporary pleasures so easily,when it comes to relationships.

For me,true love is about understanding and being there for each other.Of course trust and loyalty comes along with it naturally.I feel it is all about compatibility in terms of intelligence level and sense of humor.

Other than the male-female relationships,there are several other relations whose foundation lays on true love.The bond that keeps us connected to our parents,grandparents,relatives and friends is nothing but just love.In case of parents,love is undoubtedly in the purest form.I can say it with confidence because no matter how many arguments I have with my mom but by the end of the day,it is only she who is actually concerned if I had my dinner.

Well,the best kind of relationship that I experience of unlimited love is with God.It is because no matter I remember him or not,he is there for me all the time.I know he is going to stay with me forever.Parents’ love can seem conditional at times but God’s love is infinite and unconditional.

Throwing light on the daily life experiences,I realize that if we want love,it is very easy in today’s world.It is because each person is lonely and hollow from inside just as we are.Everyone has a soft corner which needs to be appreciated.Thus all we need to do is just be a helping hand in someone’s life and give tremendous love by being expressive and sending positive vibrations .The results may or may not be instant,but we will get back love in double quantity provided we don’t expect it from the same person.For example helping someone randomly or even feeding stray animals,always counts and attracts tremendous love and blessings,because remember you are one among the hundreds who does such acts of kindness and love.Believe me,nowadays people have no time for even love,so if you are not that busy,be proud of yourself!

At the end of the day,love is also a matter of perception and so each person defines it differently.For some people,intimacy might be a means of showing love while for others it can be just a temporary pleasure worth trying,also to mention that there can be a category of people for whom it can even be a sin.
There can be people who do not feel the existence of God and thereby for life long be deprived of the experience of heavenly love.There are people who spend their entire life experiencing inexplicable joy by giving happiness and love to others.

Thus,no matter whichever concept of love,you believe in,just learn to give without expectations.Try being a cause of smile in someone’s life.And remember once you start giving love,never take a step back for you might end up hurting someone.
I think,just as beauty lies in the eyes of beholder and so does love in the hearts of few special souls!

Sleepless Nights

i-am-sorry2

There is neither depression
Nor any evil intention;
Yet there are sleepless nights,
Unescapable attacks of panic and fright!

I know the reason
Of my popping fits of insomniac seasons;
When I try hiding my tears
To show I have no fear!

Hurting people mistakenly,
Never let my day pass smoothly!
Intense attachments for me
In hearts of parents and friends,
Is like a catchment
An indication of being charmed and loved.

However love becomes a pain,
When expectations go unfulfilled in vain!
I wish to apologize,
If my heart does not amplify
And my work fails to resonate vibrations,
The way you want sensations!

Try to understand
I never misunderstand,
But seeing you broken because of me,
Is never going to set me free!

Going Beyond Friendship

tbs

Broken and shattered they were,
Silently enduring the pain
For people reverted to their wishes
With so much of negativity!
Turning them heartless and hopeless.
Blinding them to such an extent
That everything seemed an illusion!

However time was not to remain,
Ever the same

For relief had to release vexation;
As they banged into each other!

Empathising with each other’s agony,
They could not help consoling.
Without an expectation,
Each offered the other
A comforting shoulder.

Failing to acknowledge 
The blooming love 
That was growing between them,
Giving birth to a relationship
That was beyond companionship;
Each decided to move on,
Giving importance to other priorities!

They parted ways uneasily
Leaving each other with a temporary smile
And an indelible memory
That would symbolise
Their short tenure of togetherness!

However the hope
In their hearts 
Never died
As they wished and prayed desperately
For their paths to cross some day!
