My conversation with myself on a Monday night !
I got up from my seat and screamed for no reason, “It’s
time to head back to the village.” It was one of those random outbursts I
usually have in office and my colleagues I assume are rather used to it now.
And then there was small huddle and discussions followed as to how demeaning life
seems to be these days. Everyone jumped from one topic to another and then it
was time to head home.
On my walk back home it was time for my usual long silent
walk amidst the noisy street. I kind of enjoy this walk back home. It gives my
mind ample time to observe everything around and try to make sense of why
things are the way they are. I am never able to draw any concrete conclusions
at the end of my walk and its quiet usual.
Now that I sit in silence and try to contemplate on these
two events, thoughts again seem to be clouding around. It’s pretty much the
case with most of us I believe that we wish for a completely tangentially
different life than the one we are living. A life that is simply perfect, free
of flaws. But alas the reality which might be harder than what we want to it to
be simply can’t be pushed under the carpet.
I dig my mind and I see that it’s impregnated with a little
dream. A dream of a world where people always speak their mind and the world
reciprocates with a smile. The people around might not always agree to what you
have to say, but at the same time encourage everyone to express their views. And
then I envision smiling faces all around and everyone gleefully going about
doing what they do. A world where smile is the epicentre of the universe
radiating intensives rays of joy and peace.
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.
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.
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.
