Finding peace

Everyone has different definition of peace. People may define it as happiness, eternal love or state of joy. Whatever it is, it is like an analgesic that takes your pain away. It is a way to disconnect from the world and connect to your innerself.

Someone finds it in sharing, dancing, singing, loving, meditating, writing, reading, cooking or cherishing. It is like a multicolor painting, which is vivid and all the colors have their own beauty.

It is beautiful to see that people define it in their own way and find it in their own way too. So many emotions,so many moments, so many memories that we make or gather, that may lead us to different paths of life; towards a different perspective in our lives.

But only, who has struggled, worked very hard to get the peace and still hasn’t found it, is the one who knows the value of peace. He is the one who knows how precious is the peace. It is a feeling or a sensation that can be felt or experienced. One has to be very much at comfort level in spiritual way to find peace within oneself.

It is a state of eternal bliss. No one can take it away unless you decide to let it go. After all, it is our decision/ choice to let it go, to feel disturbed or unhappy when some external source or environment gets different.

So, at last we decide when to get affected or not by this external stimulus and leave our state of bliss.

While travelling to home yesterday, I saw an elder man in bus, who had a small music player in his hands. It has some music playing continously and he was singing along with the music in loud voice. While it was disturbing the passenger sitting next to him, many other passengers were enjoying the way in which he was singing. I was one of those many passengers too, who felt that his voice (although not very sweet), had some charismatic affect on other people or on their souls

When my destination arrived, I got down of the bus, but he was still there, singing and enjoying the music. I had felt certain kind of discomfort or sadness after leaving the bus, as if I was saying goodbye to someone very near to me. In a journey of few minutes, he made me feel so good with his songs that immediately after getting down the bus, my peace was gone. It had affected me so much. But who permitted that peace to disappear in reality? It was me, no one else or no other external factor can affect us, till we let it reach deep inside our soul to impact us. It happens when we try to find peace in some outer substance or situation.

Peace is found inside of human heart/ spirit. We just need to dig deep inside us to get to know ourselves, to get to talk to that little self that we have, in order to be at peace with ourselves. And that kind of peace when found is hard to be lost, because you become consicous of the peace that your soul has, you get to channelize that peace to rest of your atoms or cells of your body.

So, my dear friends, talk to yourself, you can go to a quite place if you want, where you can connect and listen to your innerself to get the answers to you queries, to feel calm and peace. Hoping you all a peaceful life!

Hush, hush, and don’t rush.

Hush, hush, and don’t rush.
Listen to yourself, someone is talking,
A tiny winy voice coming from your innerself,
Listen to that voice and don’t rush,
Now is the moment and it is a blessing,
Enjoy your life, as if it is ending,
True to yourself and be your best,
Hush, hush, and don’t rush.

Thoughts of wisdom

The storm is brewing,
The winds are stong,
Inside his heart, so much is going on,
How to thwart, what he is going through,
Having all, yet not feeling good,
Appeared from somewhere a great Saint,
Brought with himself, so many precious thoughts,
Sharing with others is what a soul needs,
Keep sharing always, is how a soul heals.

Hauled to the party

The lights were dim,
The music was light,
I was with him,
He moved me slight,
We were dancing to the rhythm,
We were quite lost.
He grasped my arm,
And hauled me to the party.
Then held my neck,
And shook all my body.
He took me to the corner,
And planted a kiss.
It felt like a mist,
It felt so sweet.

What a beautiful life! What a beautiful experience!

The world is full of opportunities. It is awesome, mysterious and magical, how we all have the power and ability to do so much. This immense capacity that we are blessed with is one of the main characteristics of human species.

The emotions, pain, love, intelligence, strength that we bear is enough to color this world in our unique style. Our essence/aroma is the main thing, which makes us unique or different from rest of the world. The immense capacity that we possess, can take a shape of a beautiful garden from a budding plant if guided in right direction.

It’s so overwhelming to know that one possess the power to create or generate something from the very scratch. It’s a beautiful experience to feel peace, to connect to oneself, to centralize or channelize this energy in right direction. To seek the potential that one has while continuosly working to get to know oneself.

The opportunities are infinite. One needs to explore, discover, improvise and be fearless to show it to others. Afterall, we all are humans and no one is perfect in this world. To err is human.

We make mistakes, learn from them and put to march what we have learnt or found, to help this world with other or new version of ourselves and with our piece of work.

This is ME

This is ME image

I am a soft hearted, day dreamer, mom of two kids, a wife, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, a sister, a professional, a human being, a person, who is trying to explore the depths of my imagination.

I don’t know what people do to start writing. I don’t have any background as awriter. Neither I went to any institute to learn about writing nor I took any special course to learn the art of writing.

The only thing I know is that it feels good, when I write something. It seems as if words start to come out automatically and my hands start to type whatever comes on my mind.

Earlier, it was not this way. I used to think only and never used to jot down anything. Eventually, I felt that whatever comes to my mind, whether a thought, a feeling, or an expression; is the reflection of myself. It is a clear image of what I feel, how I think and how I want things to be in this real world.

For me, it is a way to explore myself, to have more insight of me, to get to know me better than before. And then, I decided to start noting down whatever comes to my mind, to spill all my thinking, my imagination on a piece of paper and share with this world, without any fear and that’s it.

It gives me peace, when I start to put my imagination in black and white. So, here, I am now, trying to do that gives me peace and happiness. I hope many of you might have felt butterflies in your stomach, while trying to write or to express yourself, but when you try to liberate this fear of what others will think, or how they will react, you will understand that it is about expressing yourself and that all the great writers or scientists or people around the world had once gone through this phase too, and that they had faced this fear. Letting go this fear is the only way to express yourself and be yourself. So, here, I am now..

Hoping not to make you disappointed, while expressing myself, in most natural way, which is my way. After all, this is my life, this is my story and this is ME.

 

Inefficient

INEFFICIENTI generally don’t like to sound annoying or as if I am complaining in my articles. But I think this is the time one should not keep a mum now.

I refer to our inefficiency as human beings in order to not try to save our environment, planet earth and its valueble resources like water.

Human being is the only species blessed to touch new heights, reach to the Moon, stars and the Universe. The only one to dig deep inside the earth. We have new technology, concepts, ideas and execution methods and we are running after materialistic stuff all the time.

We have made concrete jungles at places which were once covered with trees and were home to birds and animals. Cutting trees in huge numbers, in short span of time has led to climate changes too.

Many areas are now affected due to lack of rain and deficiency of which is leading the world to scarcity of water through out the globe. In many countries, people have to walk miles away and stand in long queues to get few gallons of water; that too is supplied by government during certain period of a day or even in few days.

How can we neglect such an important issue and be inefficient to do anything about it? We should pay our bit to save mother Earth by saving every drop of water that we have access to.

Drinking water once gone is lost forever and can’t be recycled for anything. Water used for daily purposes like cleaning, washing etc should also be gathered and recycled to reuse it.

Turn off the taps to avoid wasteage of water.

Stop being inefficient and be more responsible.

So different, yet so same.

 

so-different-yet-so-same.png

World is full of different people, coming from different races. It is a mix of cultures. We all are like different faces, bodies, thinking, actions and yet coming from same source.

Its like sun rays coming from same source, The Sun, scattering at different objects and later, taking form/ direction/ color accordingly. Or water tides coming out of same ocean, hitting various substances/ objects, and taking its way or direction.

We are short, long, black, white, slim, fat, european, asian. Whatever we are, our source is the same. The blood that flows into our veins, the heart that palpitates inside our body, the neurons that form inside our brain- everything, literally everything and every part of our body works the same way.

We are different, we are unique, yet we are same. The similarity of the functionality in which our organs work and that we have come from same source is something that makes us incredible.

No matter from which place or country one has come from, one should always respect others. The love, respect and care that we give to others today, will reach us one day, may be through another person. The faces may change, but the life force that flows inside all of us is same.

That’s why, we are so different, yet so same.

Time to think and act responsibly

Human being is quite a talented species in this world. Man has created and brought new things in this world. Whatever we have today is a result of someone’s thinking, planning and unstoppable efforts.

So many discoveries and inventions have taken birth into this world. Science and technology has reached another heights too. Evolution of industries have given economic strength and new hopes to the world.

Today´s world is not the same, we had decades ago. We have so many comforts and means to resolve, what we want. We kept on making, developing and growing.

We can easily get canned food, milk, fish, oil, cement, paint or whatever we wish. All this comes into variety of packaging. We are happy that things have become so easy, that whatever we need for our general household use, is readily available in supermarkets or shops.

All this evolution or development has also brought the need to dispose off or recycle properly. Are we doing our part in getting items recycled?

So many stores, companies, organizations and governments had been doing campaigns related to it. Although we know the importance of it, yet we fail to put efforts on it.

Items like chemicals, paints, batteries and plastic etc. need to be disposed or recycled, in order to not contaminate earth. Our rivers, lakes and oceans are also getting contaminated day by day. Our planet earth is in serious need of taking preventive measures and bringing a change. Why do not we take the responsibility to collect separately tetra packs, tin, plastic, organic and inorganic wastes and take it to our nearby facilities, where they have provision of recycling? Instead of throwing cans of soda, soft drinks, plastic bags etc. on roads or dustbins, it will be a good practice to pay some attention on sorting and getting all recycled. It does not need much time or effort, but can help us keep earth clean and safe for us and our future generations.

 

 

Recycling begins with you and me. Everyone, in spite of their age, should pay attention to certain things. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.                                                                                                                            Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

  1. Refuse to use plastic bags. Burning of this plastic contaminates earth and leads in pollution. For shopping, take your own environment friendly bags.
  2. Reduce energy consumption by choosing energy saving light bulbs.
  3. Use solar cookers for cooking purposes, solar panels to produce electricity, as technology has developed so much and we can use solar energy for numerous purposes. Save electricity and this way, you spend less on your electricity bills too.
  4. Avoid non- recyclable plastic material for day to day use. It does not only contaminate earth, but using plastic containers for food items, can cause cancer even if the same is using to heat the food.
  5. Your water bottles, cold drinks and beer cans can cause death of numerous ocean animals. Be wise and help to get these animals save, by not consuming plastic bottles and cans. Rather use environment friendly material for carrying water. You can also keep a good eye over your daily water consumption. Good for your health too.

Avoid everything that can´t go into recycling bins.

Recycle Bins

In my opinion, it is today´s need and responsibility of every person, so that our animals, birds and kids can have better environment. The future is in our hands. We just need to put these practices into best use, in sake of clean and safe environment. Our future generations will enjoy the fruit of our efforts to keep our planet safe for them.

Get involved and be part of the solution, not the problem.
