C is for Content: Day-3

“Content is the tent which we build in the hearts of readers and our time period of stay in there depends upon how deep our content penetrates into their hearts.”

Content is the king they say, but no it is the entire kingdom. I am not just talking about the written content but also about being content. How different these two terms may be, we get the same satisfaction as the result out of both, both writing content and being content.

Content is like hypnotism, a good one. The readers who letter by letter, word by word and sentence by sentence fall deeper into your world, is like hypnotizing them into  your world. It depends on you how well you take them. They should forget everything else going around them. They should sit on your letters and travel through your words. Your content is the fuel for this mode of transportation. It is never easy to write content but it is more difficult to make others know that you have written some content and it is most difficult to make others read your content. It is no one day process. It takes time. It takes effort. But the key is content. Creativity forms the base for this content. Stirring up information with creativity gives your content, the wings. If you feel satisfied that what you have written is great, its the first step to happiness. Have patience, its not that you are not producing great content, it is just that still eyes of readers haven’t fallen yet on your content and once it falls, you are a hypnotist? Right? Why worry then? Have patience. Good content always finds its place, it is the kingdom after all.

Now being content, not many are, is essential to keep our smile alive even in dark times. Being content helps us to forget worldly desires and thus makes us happy even with smallest things. Being content with what we have is like spreading some ripples in universe of our existence and our happiness. It feels like everything around us is happy and content with itself thus maintaining the balance in nature. It is taking every moment as gift, not a curse. It is like taking every other moment as an another chance, to do new, to do what our heart is telling us to do. Being content is like I have no more desires, all I have is happiness.
Being content is important to find peace and a state of equilibrium. It keeps our mind active and doesn’t let our mind wander in useless directions. Be content. Be happy. Don’t just live life, make your life alive.

And as always, thanks for reading. Have a great week ahead. Be happy.

A is for Another chance: Day-1

Another chance of life is what it has been given.
All its past acts and mistakes have been forgiven.

Taking the lead it moved forward into the dark,
it knew the dogs of future will be ready to bark.

Negotiating them all, it moved ahead with sheer confidence.
Then it wore a shield of passion and everything made sense.

It knew that attachment to past and future killed its purpose,
So it isolated itself from all the time ticking over-dose.

It started to bisect its circle with other circles from various sources.
Thus the moments started to build thus giving rise to gravitational forces.

The forces made the bond stronger adding friction to the relation.
New set of moments took birth giving the parent moment a notification.

The current moments get older and with time they get weaker.
But all the moments live like a king and die like a brave soldier.

We remember their sacrifice in the form of unforgettable memories.
The soul of old moments gets into the fresh new moment’s bodies.

Another chance of life is what they have been given.
All their past acts and mistakes have been forgiven.

The science of Love

Every being that exists in between sci (sky) en (and) ce (sea) comes under the category of love. And beyond them everything is still wandering for love. For life. – Jackie Jain

The gravitational force of her presence near my existence pulled me inside the endless black hole of her eye. The moment I entered into the radius of her perfume, the charged ions in my brain got stimulated and aligned themselves in her direction. With her eye as center and her sight as the radius a circle seemed like an orbit to me with myself being the satellite in that orbit. I wish I can communicate with my planet. Her brightness seemed as if she is the only galaxy where there is life, elsewhere there is no life.

The atoms by which she is formed, felt to me as if they were magnetic and were attracting my metallic heart. The passion for her was passing like ions in my body. The happiness ions in my brain were jumping from my valence band to conduction band. There is a sure reaction of this. Thoughts which always tremble to form a bond, were getting a lot of creativity because her presence was acting as a catalyst.

My heart stopped beating, it started playing a soothing music. My brain stopped worrying, it started to allot neurons for the memories to come with her. My eyes stopped seeing, they started to act just as spectacles to her eyes. My nose stopped breathing, the only oxygen to me was her presence near me. My lungs stopped purifying blood, they started to transport my pure love for her. My legs stopped to take a step, they just want to travel in her heart to find my existence there.

The moment I saw her, her fresh aura planted some seeds in my brain which started to grow with time. Her words were falling on those seeds and they got all the nutrients thus turning them into plants. And the moment she saw me, flowers bloomed in my brain. The weeds of negativity and ego were been removed with her smile acting as the pesticide. Her one step was enough to convert my dry land of love into a beautiful lovely garden.

The data of her first sight was saved in my memory card of brain and thousands of back up files were created. All my body parts started tweeting about her. She was the trending topic in my body. The search engines were not able to match the number of searches that were being put up by my billions of neurons. A Wikipedia was ready describing about her every detail and action. She was the living internet.

Finally the science in my thoughts helped me to clear my voice box and words stood in a line waiting for their turn to speak out. And finally the time came when she asked, ‘What do you want?’ I opened my mouth and all the rockets were launched with words as the content. ‘Will you be Valentine?’ I asked, finally. She was about to say but then the science of dreams woke me up. The science here being that dreams are real only until you are asleep. My scientific real dream broke when my friend woke me up saying this following a laughter, ‘Don’t dream much bro, you are single this year’s valentine’s day too’

I felt sad about this, but still I exist between the sky and sea, so I also come in the category of love. I felt loved. And see even my friend connected to the science of dreams, he somehow knew what I was dreaming about. Haha.. So, love was in me.

** This was a work of fiction** (But not the fact that I am single.) 😉

Do you know why the Valentine’s day is celebrated?

The historic origin of this day varies  but most people agree on the fact that this day is celebrated as a mark of respect for St. Valentine.  St. Valentine was a saint in Rome in the third century. Legend says that he used to help young couples in love marry each other against the order of the Roman Emperor, who banned the marriages as he felt that single men were made better soldiers. We don’t need a day to celebrate love, but we have to believe in love. This day marks the day of love and love is within you, don’t search for it outside. I got this information on St. Valentine from today’s edition of ‘Deccan Chronicle’ newspaper.

The colors of darkness- The way she found the light within

She was sitting in the darkness of her room, just to remind herself that her life was going through a dark phase. She was chained in the infinite walls of pessimism and colorless paints of negativity. She was in search of colors, she was in search of light. – Jackie Jain

image

Image source: Quotes Valley

In her life she felt that she has gone through a lot,
She didn’t understand how and why these many complex problems she got.

The negativity has entangled with each and every neuron in her mind,
And making her positivity and happiness go completely blind.

But this happens to every person just at different times,
But believe me when I say, that problem in all our lives, rhymes.

They all for a reason,
We all need is just a perfect vision.

Problems are a constant remainder that there is something in ourselves which we lack,
And in this dark phase, you will create and fill that missing puzzle to its place, back.

Thinking about the problem again and again, thus negativity inside our brain grows,
Looking for a solution instead, helps the senses to know about the action which you chose.

For a solution, you have to roar,
Within moments, solution will drive back to you in gear four.

The sudden whitening flick from her window, indicated her that outside it was raining,
But still her thoughts were occupied by her wounded dreams which inside were paining.

Many a times she has been thrown down to ground,
She was staring on the floor blindly in the darkness, then something she found.

Due to the light of the thunder, she saw a mirror resting at an angle on the floor,
Because of the angle she saw something in the mirror which knocked her heart’s door.

In the mirror she saw the thunder traveling at the speed of light.
And suddenly she began laughing and her neurons within started to fight.

The battle between neurons and negativity demons was won by Neurons.
From that day in her mind, Neurons and negative thoughts were separated by eons.

The path to heaven passes through hell,
Problems are just like that, to make us well.

what she thought when she saw the mirror reflecting the thunder in it?

She saw the mirror reflecting the thunder even though it was laying on the floor, though being thrown down to the ground. So with that thought she started smiling and positivity spread in her mind removing all the negativity away. Problems are necessary to find the light within, just like she found her light within. In the colors of darkness, she found the light within. Instead of running away from problems, she was ready to face them, to fight them.

“The world will throw you down to the ground, it is up to you to convert ground into a mirror, so that you can see yourself in the sky. In the skies of happiness and confidence.” – Jackie Jain.

Thanks for reading. Wishing you all a very peaceful, successful and playful Sunday..

The oceans and infernos of time- Universal Time

He was seeing her, she was ticking around in circles. He was aware that she can never become his companion, still he wanted her, because she rules the world. But he was unaware that she can never be any one’s companion. Because she is universal. Because she is time. Jackie Jain

I was falling down deeper and deeper in one of her endless infernos,

Her ticking hands were hovering over me with wings holding an array of arrows.

With fear of arrows, I closed my eyes. In that darkness, I saw the words taking a form of DNA structure and were also falling down along with me, but at a far distance.

I tried to view those DNA structured words more closely, and then I was shocked in an instance.

Those were the words which I didn’t express when I had her and expressing them was important then for a good cause.

I realized my mistake and asked her for one more chance. Then there was a pause.

I told her that I will use her well and will never waste a single bit of her.

I saw the ticking hands with wings dropping down the arrows and everything changed thereafter.

For the first time, I saw her without a veil, she was beautiful.

People’s descriptions about her were wrong and deceitful.

She was not strict and limited. She was filled with happiness and abundance.

She was what everyone needs and wishes about, but still no one utilizes her efficiently at least once.

She opened her eyes, it felt like she was revealing her secret to me. I saw around. But no one, except she and me were around.

I was eager to seek in her eyes, but some cogs, each moving at a different speed was what all I found.

She spoke for the first time, ‘This is how I work. This is my universe. No one can reverse my mechanism. Don’t waste me. Once I am lost, I am lost forever.’

I understood why no one can have her. Because she always keeps moving. We have to tick around in sync with her cogs to know her power.

She opened her hearts which are her cogs and showed me the cross-sectional view.

I wasn’t able to believe what I saw as what I saw was something people never knew.

I saw the seven continents and five oceans were arranged in the form of cogs, each moving with their own speed.

Thousands of moments were being written on those cogs according to the need which were difficult to read.

Seven continents namely, Years, Months, Weeks, Days, Hours, Minutes and seconds, where people write their memories, were easily visible.

The sounds of five oceans namely Past, Present, Future, Unconscious state and Dreams, where people travel, were clearly audible.

For the first time I felt happy about her presence,

This experience gave me a purpose and time sense.

She asked me my final thoughts, I declared ‘ It will be a heinous crime,

if anyone don’t maintain you properly, because you are the universal time.’

If you don’t use the time properly, you will fall deep in the inferno of time

and if you use time properly, you will sail in oceans of time and reach your destiny in time.

Thanks for reading. Maintain her properly.

A stranger in the mirror- By Jackie & Darshith

A story of two friends who used to meet daily, and still were strangers to each other. One day they finally thought to meet at a special place and then they became one.

There were two friends named Sapna and Kalpana. They were sitting opposite to each other with their eyes locked in each other. Even though they have met many a times before, but today for some reason they felt as strangers to each other. They felt as if they were from different worlds. As the friends are from two different worlds, we bring out this story from two different worlds of Words dipped in Happiness and Smiles here & Smiles there . As Darshith is a professional as Sapna, he will portray the story of Sapna. As my thoughts are still in search for a form, I will portray the story of Kalpana. How these two friends, become strangers and then become one? The two worlds merging into one. Our first and unique Collaboration. What’s so unique about this story? Keep reading.

Kalpana’s perspective:

Kalpana always felt as if she is just an imaginary character. She used to think that she has no life in real. There was always an dividing line between her thoughts and her ability to convert those thoughts into real life, and that dividing line was a form. She always lacked form to do anything. There was no shape for her life dimensionally. She has no existence. She lived among billions of neurons, but still her thoughts were ignored. Her passion was overflowing within, but there was no body to fill it. Just like there is lot of oxygen in this world, still you need to breath it in for respiration, similarly, even though she had a lot of passion about her life, but there was no body, no container to fill that passion. Her life was like an unsolved puzzle. She was just an illusion to her own thoughts. She was struck in between her life (imaginary) and her passion about life. She was in search of a body where her soul can fulfill her passion. She felt as if she was just a soul. She thought that her parents have given her a perfect name ‘Kalpana’ which means ‘Imaginary’ in Hindi. She was just an imagination to her own self. She was the soul, and she was in search of a body, a body to fulfill her passion. Kalpana has the wings to fly, but not a body to feel the flight. She has everything that has the power to be successful and reach the destiny, but she needs the body, the legs to walk towards destiny. She always has great admiration for her friend Sapna. Kalpana feels that Sapna has a body through which her soul can fulfill her passion. But still Kalpana is confused that why Sapna is not following her passion! What’s stopping Sapna! Kalpana just wishes that Sapna’s body becomes Kalpana’s and Kalpana’s passion become Sapna’s. But Sapna has a different set of problems. Let’s check out her life.

Sapna’s perspective:

I am a computer who walks, talks, speaks, shits & exists. I am not living. Living is attached to something that has life in it & passion to survive. Oh, I so love the word passion, even though I haven’t pursued mine. Don’t ask me WHY? Even I ask myself the same and neglect the question. As dear is the word passion to me so are the excuses. Excuses like I am busy with work, I have a life, I am in search of happiness but won’t do much to actually achieve it. My name is Sapna meaning ‘dreams’ in Hindi. I hope that my parents named me Sapna because I was a dream to them & not because they wanted me to follow my dreams. Following dreams requires wings for our passion to fly high with the wind. My passion had died and been buried deep inside my heart since the day I joined IT job. It has been nothing but a robotic schedule to be followed for 5 days a week. It’s a simple equation i.e., Intake of free biscuits + coffee should yield a code. One has to fit in that equation without being an exception. Lack of sleep, excess tensions, deadlines, issues, client calls has made life monotonous, snatched away my passion & made me emotionless and lifeless. I am searching for that silver lining, that ray of hope which will make me passionate again, which will make me alive again, bring back the lost charm. I want to stay true to my name & for that I will be meeting my friend Kalpana, who has her own set of problems. We are finally meeting today at a place she chose & today I want to open up to her & speak my doubts and fears.

Conclusion:

After being fed up with their corresponding lives, finally Sapna and Kalpana made up their mind to meet at a place with a clear mind. And that place was the mirror. Sapna, the girl with a passionless body and Kalpana, the mirror image (Soul-fie) of Sapna with imaginary thoughts of passion without a body, were sitting opposite to each other in front of a mirror. With a clear mind without previous attachments, they felt as strangers to each other. Yes, for the first time they realized the importance of each other. They came to know that they are not made to live two different lives, but just one life. The life which makes them complete. The life which gives a body to the passion. The passion which gives wheels to the life. From that day they became one. Sapna and Kalpana turned into reality. It is whether body found the soul or soul found the body, but at last passion found its Destiny.
