Explore thyself!

Standard

Hello, fellow humans!

It has been a long, long time since I posted here. This time of abnegation was not easy for me too but yesterday, in a moment of ‘self-forgetfulness’, I came up with this drawing and the message above entails the gyst of the story of my writer’s block. Once I discover I’m good at something or that people benefit from what I do, I start to lose the ‘involunary’ element of the act. It becomes a part of a sickening routine. The sublime aspect of writing is the sincerity of emotion and in this torpor, writing/blogging is a sin.

So…solution? First, I needed to clear my mind by leaving all problems to God. Then, I put myself in the present and notice what things make my heart excited about life. I needed to get the blog out of the comma so I started to explore myself this way. For instance, if I watched TV, I watched myself from outside to know what are the things that make my heart jump.

My work is only meaningful if it is connected to society in any way. Anything outside this set, holds no value for me. Doing things for the sole purpose of entertainment (like playing games online) just drains away spirit.

True wish

Standard

I took my heart in my hands,

And purged it,

Purged my carnal garden of all the weeds.

With that pure heart,

I made my one true wish,

My one true answer to

What I really want

I don’t know

Standard

I just really dislike the way people say, ”I don’t know how I did this” after some big achievment. There’s always something- planning, hard work, sacrifice, self-control- that gets you the prize. Why do people say this, then? Do they forget their toil? It puzzles me. Paulo Coelho said that after you climb a mountain, tell your story to others because it serves as an inspiration but statements like ‘I don’t know how I did it’ are very  misleading; for once, it gave me the impression that whatever you do, you will get what you want simply by having a strong desire for it because… as the person said he does not know his formula for success, there must be none and we just need to do what we think is our best. These kind of vague concepts get us nowhere- it leads to abject failure. I think I got a reality check that to achieve something, you need to

Dream—-Research on the dream—-Plan—-Act

And this is what I call giving your best.

Thanks for reading! Hope this helps everyone. 🙂

Forget

Word of the day: Chemical. Meaning: A strong liquid that reacts with glue and thus, helps in getting rid of past.

One must learn the art of forgetting. Anything that disturbs you should never stay glued to your ears. If it does, the best way to get rid of it is to wash it away with a chemical, a strong chemical that reacts with the glue. Chemicals of this sort can vary from person to person; someone who likes fantasy movies should use them to wash the glue away, someone who likes rock music should use rock music. The bottomline is — the chemical should have the potency to captivate your senses away from reality. What is your chemical?

Remember, nothing should destroy your peace of mind.

Overload

Can you listen to all the channels of the radio at a time? Can you watch all the TV channels at a time? No.

When seeking advice, seek it from a single source. Don’t flood your brian with all the search results that Google provides for your conundrum, your brain will overeat and expel everything! Instead, walk slowly and ask yourself which source you trust the most. Then go for it and trust it. Forget everything else.

The wise thing to do

We all enjoy doing the opposite of ‘wise’ but that is reckless. Choose boring, choose peace. Whenever you are in a new, bewildering scenario, an event that floods your brain and as you pass the mirror in your bedroom, in your bathroom, in the living room …. you pause for a second to talk to yourself. You start to think. You look at your eyes, your ears, your nose separately and focus, asking yourself: This is new for me, what do I do?

My answer: Be wise. Be boring. The flood will wash away.

Opinions change

Opinions

When it comes to relations, leve your treasured opinions behind. Moreover, there is no use in breaking relations due to difference of opinions. A lot of ‘cold’ situations arise due to our pride of opinions- we attach so strongly to them, we start bickering because of them.

Besides, if you look back at your opinions 10 years later, a lot of them might have changed. We contradict ourselves all the time. That’s how we grow. So think yourself, what use are those opinions if they don’t stay with you forever? Do they outweigh relations…that stay with us forever???
