Joy Of Life Is In NOW!
“Let’s fall in love, madly with now,
Let’s not worry about
why, what and how.
Let’s not bother about
Now is the princess and
the only true queen.”
As I stepped out of my office I could
feel the rain drops slowly wetting the streets. It was a drizzle, a heavy rain
would have been even better. But the drizzle was enough set off the unique fragrance
of wet soil. As I walked down the road to catch an auto to get home, the
drizzle got stronger so did the fragrance. At that precise moment I could feel
a gentle smile blossoming on my face. I was enjoying it, wishing to get
drenched in rain if it was to get heavy.
Such small silly
moments have a lot of joy filled in them. The feeling of joy still lingered
around even after it had stopped drizzling. It feels blissful to enjoy these
moments. Somehow it makes me believe in the power of now. The present moment is
the one which needs to be celebrated. The future is still few miles away. Until
we get there and turn it into the new present, it’s just now which should be
apple of our eyes.
“She has the charms,
She has the style,
She is the key to
But then people hardly
It’s so often true that
we fail to accept the reality of present. Doubting the power of present, we cynically
try and explore its imperfections. All that we gain in this fruitless pursuit
is a pound of melancholy. Let’s move on and embrace the present. Let’s love her
for being true and not frown about her imperfections if any. The joy of life is
in now, feel your heartbeat and kiss your soul.
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.
