Experiencing matters!

We all have days when we feel lost, days when we feel like we can conquer the world. Often I am unable to be clear because I am too impatient with the thoughts running through my head I don’t let them run their course. later on I am gasping at the threads trying to make sense of it all when actually I never let them come together completely in the first place. 

How many times are we actually able to sit through things without interruption? Why this hurry? What are we trying to accomplish? Why do we start counting days when the holidays just start? Why not step back and enjoy the moment as it is? I don’t see kids playing in an empty ground any more. Babies first learn operating the Ipad first. Alphabets can wait. Expression is secondary. Technology comes first. Restless ness is the by-product of technology. a restless mind leads to lesser and lesser peace. 

I cannot hear the birds in the morning. Only the sounds of horns and generators and motors fill the air. Far too much time is lost in acquiring and lesser time gets invested in experiencing. while we are human and in this earth, lets experience for a change and stop running behind things to be achieved and acquired. 

Experiences lead to memories and happy memories are what we will carry in our hearts for the times that come.

There a million ways to plan and strategize about what we want and how we are going to get it, but what actually happens is far beyond anyone’s control. It is a subtle but relentless mechanism called nature and life is all about going with it. Lesser the struggle, more the gains. When I say gains, do not picture wealth. What you gain here is peace of mind. Peace is gained when you do not anticipate, expect or wish. It is a state where everything is as it should be. Why not then treat this life like a game we get to play. Give your best throws and wait for the breeze to do the rest. No matter where you land, its beautiful and worth experiencing. Let go of set patterns and ideas about a perfect life. Life is perfect. It is just not what you expected.

If not now, when?

Friends are the biggest blessing any human being can have. The laugh and cry with you. Stories are shared and sorrows halved. They are there when you feel scared, they are there to celebrate your success. It takes years to make a good friend and sometimes just a couple seconds to destroy a friendship.

There will be times when things will be hard and friends will be scarce. Change is the only constant around. Friendswill move away, their lifes will change, time wont be on your side and it will get difficult to keep in touch even. During such times remember that there is no point in experiencing something or doing something if you cannot share it with some one. In the world of emails and chats, independence and self-sufficiency, freedom and power, being in the arms of your loved one still scores high. Very high.

Make time today and connect with your loved ones. as time passess faster then we realise it might just be too late to demonstrate how much you care.  Wishing everyone a very Happy Friendship day.. today and everyday!

"I love you" because it is convenient!

It is tough to talk about relationships.. Most of us are scared of it at some point. But we may want it badly too at times. May be it is not about wanting a relationship or wanting to find love. It is the want of a successful relationship, a love that is cherished and most importantly returned. Success is important to us.. in everything :)

Modern day attitude towards love is all about ‘the right fit’ and less about ‘let’s figure it out together’. Not surprising that most relationships that exist are based out of convenience. “I want to settle closer to town because that means less travel to work”. “This guy may be right for me NOW.” Fewer people are thinking about ‘always’ and leaning more towards ‘now’. Has love become a momentary thing? Are people are able to digest the idea of happy forever?

The number of people opting to ''just lets see how this goes for the time being'' has increased. Fewer people are settling down.. settling down much later in life. I do not think that is a bad thing. It is very important to know what you want and when you want. What i do not approve of is people refusing to grow up and own up to their decisions. You can't forever not made up your mind yet. Neither is wanting to be with someone purely based on ''how convenient is this as of now''.

Don't add DAYS to life, add LIFE to days.. Stay Happy!

What if today was your last day? Would you confess your love for a person? Would you do all the things you always wanted to do? How about a To - Do list? Seems like a good idea to me!

Why do we postpone things for tomorrow when we do not actually know if tomorrow is going to come? We fight, struggle, complain and crib over things.. We devise ways to get better than the rest and resent other's success. We get greedy.. starve one-self to achieve a perfect figure. You are NOT as fat as you think!

How many perfect days do we actually have? When were you truly happy? How many of those days do you remember? Questions and more questions.. and while I busy myself answering myself, how about you answering these to yourself before its too late :)

Go and live your life.. You get it only once. Add life to your days today and watch your life turn extraordinary..

Are you escaping from NOW?

It is so easy to get caught in the mundane things of life. Routine is so stable, so comforting. If only we could break out of the shackles of this stability will we find the excitement of the unknown. One can predict what will happen next. Our life is a series of events aligned one after the other strictly following the pattern of everyday routine.

Everything is planned. Salary gets credited. Immediately some of it is planned to be saved. For future. We kill the excitement of tomorrow by planning it today. 

Let go a little.. spend an unplanned day. Breathe deeply and soak in your surroundings.. 
Do not have an agenda for today. Just be.. The magic of living is in the Now.

U wouldn't know...

You yawn, open your eyes when the sun light falls on your face,
You stub your toe, wince and drag yourself from bed,
You stare at yourself in the mirror, rub sleep off your eyes,
You boil the eggs, heat milk, the tape is playing your favourite song.

You rush about, eyes dart from left to right, you sprint across the road,
A smile on your lips, the day has just begun.
The tray is filling up, three cups of coffee and the day gets harder,
Work is just an extension of you, I see that you see this.

A wave of a hand, a nod and a shrug,
You skip and sprint, works done for the day, you head towards the store.
A beer, a smoke, you need peace. 
I wanna ask you if you care for some company?

No is not an answer,refusal not an option.
Is it better you being a part of my life without being in it?
Would it matter if I existed, stayed close, kept you warm?
Would it be nice to hear you speak, know what goes on in your head?

Do you know, I know what you're thinking? U wouldn't know.
Do you realise, I'm thinking of you? U wouldn't know.

Where is the music?

I wander away from the hustle bustle of city life, not because I am the quiet type or that I like to be a villager. Technology, modernisation has made life more comfortable and pleasurable and I really do cherish that experience. I do like my life. I listen to trance and I like to party once in a while. I enjoy my fast paced life, hurrying my way to work and bumping into people who are in a hurry too.

But what about the music? Where is the music that I wish to hear? In crowds? In clashing of steel? In honking of cars? In noise?
Where is the peace? Where do I find heavenly melody?

The wee hours of the morning just before sunrise are the most favorite minutes of my day. The whole world is sleeping. Birds are chirping. No cars, No movement. Only leaves rustling. I can hear the wind, the trees and the sound of silence.
I am in the moment. Not in the past, not in the future. That is when I feel truly alive.

Not surprising that there is music in silence.

The world is exactly what we think...

It is the same road. Same auto. Same gate to cross. Same building to be entered. Same people. Same environment. Same work!

An old known place can seem different when our mind set is different. The same people begin to be right. Things look good somehow and the world seems a better place. What is this quality which alters how we feel about our surroundings which hasn't really changed at all?

It is our mind which has the ability to change everything. When we are sad, everything around us seems awful. No wonder then that suicides seem foolish to a happy person.

If the world is exactly the way we see it, what then should our thought process be? Is the right way to approach things is to look inside out or outside in?

Happiness, contentment and peace comes from within. The outside world is constantly only giving us what we ask for.. ask for grief and you will find it in plenty. Ask for joy and you will exactly attract it! I once heard some one say "I wake up every morning and decide that I'm gonna be happy today. That is the secret to being happy." Surely, nothing else works!

Perception matters. Really!
