When it gets boring…

Just thought of making this when a political talk show was on TV and I HAD to put up with it. Jumped into my imagination and tolerating became easier.

New

This is a fairly difficult task, given that we all cling on to our experiences and lessons and consider them our achievements but this is how we all used to live in our childhood. I keep thinking about my time in 5th grade; how care free I was, yet I achieved a lot, I had friends, I was funny and I was never disappointingly sad. This was the year I got my ‘Best student of the year’ award (not intending to brag 🙂 ). Anyway, looking back…one realises that whenever our life changes, whenever we feel free, whenever we come out of the suffocating closet of mundane, everyday life…we were actually in a particular state. The state of blankness. We shed our past, our lessons JUST FOR A SHORT WHILE, then receive the new message (that can have the power to change us) and think about it.

Your homework after reading this post: Think of techniques to forget your knowledge for a while. Become new. Get new eyes. Perceive the world with your new eyes.

Unclockable!

What time really is

Time is unclockable

I read an article in The Guardian by Jay Griffith titled ‘Clock time can play havoc with your emotions’; reading the article entailed an emotional upheaval…that liberating, flying sensation you get upon receiving an insight. Science agrees that creativity requires our mind to wander so why do we keep making to-do-lists and schedules- insurances of getting things done- and sacrifice the quality of our work that may result from spontaniety? I have discussed the same thing in a post before (about the quote from The Holy Quran that a believer must  live in moments..in the present) but time and time again, I keep falling for this trap of Clocking everything. Obsession with perfection may be the convict here so getting rid of this ugly habit will take time and until then, I will keep posting about clock-addiction (:

So today, the only thing occupying my mind is my action plan to implement on the beautiful words of this article…

ACTION PLAN

1.Transform yourself into a radar: Receive the message that the universe is sending, listen to your heart..where is it gliding? The universe sows the seed of inspiration in everyone of us everyday. The seed then grows and becomes a plant- the action.

2.Let the plant grow: Now do what the universe demands from you.

Usually during the action, I play some adventurous/happy music in my head, like the Glee cover of Whitney Houston’s It’s not right but it’s okay

RESULT

Happiness 🙂

Hope this result is the same for all of you.

Hey all! Peace! I’ve been browsing at tumblr a lot lately and I thought about the significance of cartoons an animation in our lives. They’ve  always fascinated me  and as a they have a large contribution in strengthening my power of imagination because of my sheer attachment to them in my childhood. This sparked an idea in my mind… about making textbooks or story books for children with the lessons that I want to convey to the sweet little kids of my country- tomorrow’s creative thinkers. So from this, I want you guys to think of something you like… and then use it to do something positive, don’t EVER let that feeling go away!

Cartoons keep me young at heart. What keeps you young?

God bless you all! 🙂
