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

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.

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.

New eyes

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.

Hey, don’t be dumb!

Standard

Dumb?

No one is dumb. Everyone has talent and intellect. But. There are moments when I see people being dumb. Being absolutely out of their minds- very very 😦 and cranky! The only reason people stoop to that is that they do not use their brains as much as they should. You need to be smart and figure out the art of happiness. My dad always says that. So look around, find reasons, find logic….and the result: THANKFULNESS.

In the end, you’ll be thankful.

So…be smart, be happy.

🙂

P.S. For me, I always use my brain to pretend, to pretend that everything is perfect and this day is a gift. I constantly use my mind to emboss that idea. Speaking to myself, I finally start believing and I start thanking God.
