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

Standard

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.

Eternal

Standard

When nothing beautiful comes to mind, I try to remember my dreams. Those are my strongest sources of knowing what my soul is like. One’s carnal self dies but the soul is eternal. Somehow, that invisible world seems more real, just like Plato proposed. I wish to be a Physicist and yet, this realm, although ‘unreal’ seems more interesting.

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.

How easy it is to smile in texts and emails and facebook updates- the excercise of 44 muscles replaced by a combination of just 3 punctuation marks. How easy it is to fake a smile when you text…no one can judge, no one can doubt its veracity. Our emotions, in this day and age, can not be construed by our fellow individuals. Fake is real now. And you can’t argue because you can’t look beneath the surface, what used to be glass is steel now. We all pretend with ease that we are happy to see someone or happy to be somewhere, so confident in that smiley. A child only smiles when it comes from the inside. When do you? I am not against smiling, I’m just pleaing you to bring more life to it.
