Tune In And Surrender


I was sitting in the lobby waiting for my name to be called out. It was apparent that it's going to be sometime before it would be my turn. I looked around, it was a quiet space. I asked my self what's that I miss the most in my busy day. A meaningful conversation pat came the answer. 

I looked to my left, I saw another me. A smiling face with glitter of excitement in the eyes. I asked him why are you smiling? What's the excitement for? He didn't answer any of my questions. 

I looked away and wondered why am I hallucinating. I looked to my left again, he was still there, still smiling. "You been thinking a lot these days, most of which have led you nowhere", he said. "Isn't it about the lost smile?"  

I protested and I said, "Oh common, what rubbish. I do smile, and I do so everyday." But deep within I knew, it was another feeble attempt of mine to accept reality. With that moment of acceptance the other me sitting alongside me disappeared. But the voice lingered around, "You have been looking around in wrong places for what you been seeking, the one place you never bothered looking for it is within."

The meaningful conversations we desire for are not necessarily with others all the time. Although it's always a fantastic moment when two like minded people getting together, like a house on fire. Sometimes these meaningful conversation are with oneself too. It's just that introspection is underrated. But in fact a few moments a day spent with self could lead to great discoveries.

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.

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.
