“The State Of Trance In Illness”

I was sitting in the balcony of my house yesterday night. Was talking to a friend of mine and I just happened to look at the sky. The moon was looking beautiful not that it isn’t beautiful on other days. But it was definitely different. The crescent shaped moon looked mesmerising. And I told myself it’s time to start writing again. And here I am after a long gap, fingers running across the keypad, thoughts taking shape of strings of words.

I too hate myself for not being able to write on regularly. So many thoughts stay entrapped in my mind, eager to be shared the world. But for some reason I fail to push myself to express them all in words on a regular basis. So this I guess is another attempt of mine to push myself out of the limits I have put against me. Or rather to be more honest I have plainly been lazy. So guess it’s time to kill the laziness in me.

“The State Of Trance In Illness” – that’s what I was thinking about a few days back. Guess my more than frequent ill spent days in bed due to ill health is what triggered me to write about it. Not sure how many people out there in the world agree and disagree with it, never mind.

What I am trying to get to is, have you observed the way ones thinking changes when one is ill. I have on many occasions observed it. Unlike a few who might say ones thought gets hazy in illness cause the person is sick. I believe in the contrary. The state of mind is one of that of trance in which there I no clutter in mind. As if the unspoken is being spoken in your mind. More like the subconscious is what is running your mind.

One starts thinking about the extreme one wished all his life to do, as if this is indeed the last day the person is left with in his/her life. Of course it may not be the last day in fact; a few pills and you are back to the BBW – Big Bad World! It could be things like saying sorry/thank you to people you wished you conveyed before it’s too late. The most imaginary and things which in ones normal life seemed absurd may be what one craves to do. Even the panoramic view of looking at things around us changes. And at the same time everything seems and looks clear and orderly.
And then when one gets all well and fine, Its back to what everyone else calls the normal world.

Normal world – what’s that? Personally I feel it’s just what the majority of the society perceives to be right and normal. Hey all you out there if anyone was to call you abnormal... Take a chill pill. It in no way means you are wrong... it’s just that your thought is just not in line with so called majority of the society. As I always say, no one is right & no one is wrong! There is no truth & lie! It’s all what one preserves.

Well the topic to me is never ending... so I leave you all with space to think about it..... Ponder about it...

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

-VJ says ~ cheers and peace

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
