Q is for Quotations: Day-17

Words written in between the Quotations ask us for special attention and tell us that they are special. Quotes are the short forms of words which spread the message of quality over quantity. In only few words we can go very deep with the concept and relate to them easily. I think they heal the wounds of thoughts quickly. Dictionary defines quotes as the ‘repeat or copy out (words from a text or speech written or spoken by another person).’ But I would like to share few of my own quotes ( don’t know whether I can call them like that) here.

“If you think you have achieved enough for yourself, it’s time to achieve for others.”

“There is no short cut to success, it is just that sometimes you have to take the longer path.”

“Not  everyone in the world is there to hold you with their fingers, some are waiting to hold you with their sharp nails. Be careful.”

“Don’t plan life for years, it may change in seconds. Instead plan your life in seconds such that it becomes be useful for years.”

“You can draw inspiration from others, but at the end you have to paint it by yourself in your life.”

“Only what you eat with your mouth reaches the stomach. So control your mouth well.”

“Make your immune system resistive to negative thoughts.”

“Our world is full of Love and Power. Love with wrong intentions and Power in wrong hands.”

“We all are tied with the invisible ropes of love and trust in our life. Be careful with your two-lipped scissors.”

“Life is a disease for which we have to find a cure.” (This quote is the first one I ever wrote. I wrote it in my friend’s slam book in 10th class.)

( I love quotes written by Maya. They are very inspiring. )

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 17 and it is on the letter ‘Q’. ‘Q’ is for Quotations. They heal our mind quickly.

Q

Coming to the challenge, as the name itself says it is very challenging. On every day of month April, except Sundays, which makes it to 26 days, each participant should publish a post relating to the letter corresponding to the number of the day thus completing all the 26 alphabets. For example on day 1, the post should be on something related on letter A, on the second day it should be related to B and this goes on. Exciting? Isn’t it?

And as always, thanks for reading. Keep reading quotes and also keep framing quotes. The happiness of framing quotes cannot be expressed in words. Have a good week ahead.

Is curiosity a cure? Or something else?

She was always curious about her life, about her existence. She wanted to know about everything, but she didn’t knew that knowing about everything is like being at every place on Earth, at the same time. Information was deforming her. She was not satisfied with what she knew, she wanted more! what was her cure? – Jackie Jain

She was feeling lost,
that too in her own body.
Curiosity.

She aims to touch sky,
But cannot fly with her thoughts
No velocity.

Fighting her feelings,
Burying her emotions
Oh! It was pity.

She desires for more,
Only seeks information
Ultimate deity.

She was curious,
Her anger ferocious,
And getting mighty.

Search information
Spreading like disease within
Will she be happy?

Happiness is in
Being less curious.
Live life lovingly.

Curiosity is important to get answers for our questions and doubts. But isn’t curiosity to know about everything, curiosity to be everywhere making us restless and unsatisfied!? There is 71% water on the Earth, but it doesn’t mean that when we feel thirsty we have to drink all that water. There is a limit to everything. Even to curiosity. But I am not saying that we don’t have to be curious. I am just saying that we should have prior knowledge of why we are curious on that? Limited curiosity, being curious for things we actually want to know rather than being curious for things just because they exist. Happiness is being satisfied and living life with love and care. Limit curiosity, get satisfied with your curiosity, that’s the ultimate happiness. Curiosity is the cure for information, but a disease if used too much in quantity.

Even though I have written Haikus before, this is first time I have written seven haikus in a single poem. Thanks for reading. Be curious, but in limits. Have a great week ahead.

Haiku is a Japanese style of poetry which consists of 3 lines with 1st line and 3rd line having 5 syllables each and 2nd line with 7 syllables. Thus each Haiku having 17 syllables in total.

The mathematics of ‘not easy’

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere- Agnes Repplier.

It is not easy to drink a drop of positivity when you are surrounded by the oceans of negativity.

It is not easy to remain stable when an earth quake of doubts is trembling in your brain.

It is not easy to stay calm when a volcano of emotions is burning inside your heart.

It is not easy to feel connected when you feel your heart beat as the sound of your heart breaking.

It is not easy to move on when your legs are freezed to your words in brain.

It is not easy to hold on your feelings when they are flying away with winds of memories.

It is not easy to feel safe when there are four windows for love to enter your heart. There may be fake intruders.

It is not easy to focus on your goal when your eyes have broken up with each other and are parting away.

It is not easy to breath air when both your nostrils feel allergic to oxygen.

It is not easy to find your destiny, by just following the path of lies and injustice.

It is not easy to feel happy when sadness has broken the doors of your happiness.

It is not easy to find the light within when you are surrounded by the artificial lights of opinions of others.

It is not easy to burn your passion when your profession can be turned off with just changes in economy of the market.

It is not easy to become successful in real life when you are ascending the steps of failure in your virtual life.

It is not easy to complete this post when there are so many ‘not easy’ terms in the post. . .

Ok.  Let’s try to decode and make tasks little easier. Lets remove the empty spaces in our life and fill them with inspiration. So lets remove the spaces from the term ‘not easy’. It becomes, ‘noteasy’. Ok now let’s share our problems, so that they reduces to halves. So there are 7 letters in ‘noteasy’ , let’s divide them into halves. Taking the chambers of heart as the base, as it is the emitter of feelings, we have, 4’s half =2 ; 2’s half =1. Now we can divide 7 letters in 4 2 1. We obtain . Yes, when you feel anything as ‘not easy’, note it as Y in your brain and it will give an answer that’s very easy because you have divided your problems. There you will find the solution to the problem if you search with your soul on it. Once you convince your brain, that everything is fine, it will start functioning normally.

Yes, life is simple, but it’s just not easy, so note as y, ask your brain y, search for solution with your soul on it. You will find the answer. Yes, you are the mathematician of your ‘not easy’ terms. Because happiness is in you. Sharing your problems with others takes you closer to your inner happiness.

Love, Passion and Content

My three favorite words and why?  

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.

1. LOVE
2. PASSION
3. CONTENT.

Love passion and content are my three favorite words, which I consider upon which our complete life is based. How? Let’s start spreading the magic of these words. Let’s move step by step, word by word to understand the completeness of ourselves, human beings.

LOVE: Love, being a four lettered word it spreads in all the four directions with care as the epicenter. Love can take you to any height of success and even to any depth of happiness. Love is not just a feeling, it is the feel, which can be seen in our eyes, smile and thoughts. LOVE always reminds us that whenever we are feeling LO (low), there are some people with whom we can always share as we call them VE (we).   Love is not just love for family, friends and soul-mate, it is love for our life. Love for this celebration of the life, love for our existence in this world. Let’s finish this word with,

FROM WOMB TO TOMB WITH LOVE.

PASSION: Nowadays it is just considered as a hobby, rather than a profession. People never read these pages of their life. They are unaware that their destinies are written in these pages of passion. So they always wander in search of destiny. If they follow their passion, they would know for what they are born! There is a purpose of our living, it is hidden in the passion. Burn your passion and set your soul on fire. Let’s finish this word with,

ONLY IF OUR PASSION TURNS INTO OUR PROFESSION, THEN AND ONLY THEN, IT WILL HELP OUR NATION.

CONTENT: The state of satisfaction is how we define content. The state of happiness where we feel everything is perfect. That’s the state of mind, where we all want to live. Satisfaction comes from doing what we love to do. It can be attained by a simple maths technique. We are well aware of the simple maths addition technique, 1 + 2 = 3. Similarly, only by 1’ing (Loving) our 2 (passion), we can be 3 (Content). And content is falling in love. Love with life. Let’s finish this word with,

IT’S NOT ABOUT BEING +VE OR BEING -VE, IT’S ALL ABOUT BEING IN loVE, Being content.

By loving our passion, we can feel content. This is the link between my three favorite words. 

So this is how we feel complete by using these three words in our life. If we take these three words Love, Passion and Content into consideration, we can see that only the letter ‘O’ is common in between them, and ‘O’ represents the state of completeness. Yes, we feel complete with these three words in our life. But wait there is something missing, if we put an eye on all the vowels in these three words, we only get a,e,i and o. But the vowel ‘u’ is missing. Yes, you are missing. I am nothing without you on this journey. So let’s all move together in this journey of life.

Thanks for reading. Wishing you all a very loving, passionate and content weekend. 😉

It’s time to correct the tERROR

Hatred spreads quickly than love because hatred destroys everything that comes in it’s way, whereas love builds everything that comes in it’s way. So we should stop spreading hatred and should start spreading love.

In this critical moment of time, we all should stand together and bind with love leaving no space for hatred. Terrorism which is filling people’s hearts with fear should end. It’s not time to give ears to fear. It’s time to let go Ego and every religion should unite and stand firm against terrorism. Because fear occupies the place which is filled with negative thoughts where as confidence gives rise to positivity in ourselves. It’s time to be the warrior, with Mouth as bow and peace as arrows. Talk peace. Spread love.

Recent attacks on Paris are a major setback to the living style of people all over the world. The attacks are shocking as well as brutal. Now it’s not time to sit. It’s time to stand, stand together. Hatred and violence in between religions is not the solution to this. It’s time to remove such acts from it’s roots. All religions stand against such acts of war and terror, so there is no reason to blame any religion. We have to correct that error. Extremists belong to no religion, they are not at all humans. All religions are against violence and now it’s time for all countries and religions to stand together and face this issue of terrorism to its end. Let’s remove all these barriers of religions. Religions are just different languages to understand God. Peace is the foundation in every religion. It’s easier said than done, but it’s important to implement this and soon. Once these roots of power loving extremists are removed, our world will be filled with Love, once again.

It’s not about being positiVE or negatiVE, it’s all about being in loVE. So let’s fall in love with this beautiful life again. Let’s make our world a beautiful place again.

In peace of our minds, the happiness of our soul rests. Thanks for reading.

Don’t measure life, because it is dimension-less

Life is not something which you can measure, because for a chance to measure, you need dimensions.

Some people in order to measure this so called life, take appearance of people as dimensions and their work as units of measurement. But they forget that our bodies are just vessels to give a shape to our dimension less soul. But our soul doesn’t live in our body, it stays in the thoughts we think, which are even dimension-less. We can excel only by giving a direction to it.

That’s the very reason why we meditate. Meditation doesn’t keep a limit on our thoughts, it just gives a direction to our thoughts. We close our eyes during meditation because it helps us in travelling to the depth of our soul and gaining some command on our thoughts.

Our words are very powerful beyond measure. While listening, they enter through our ears, then raise to our brain and fall into our heart. While reading, they raise to our eyes, then to our brain and finally fall into our heart. And from heart they are circulated to our whole body inspiring each and every bit of our existence.

We cannot change our thoughts, but we can change the way we think. Our mind just keeps on thinking. Sometimes they may be meaningful sometimes they may not be. But if we give a direction to these thoughts they may sound somewhat more meaningful. Never measure any one just because their thoughts are wandering direction-less. Give a direction to their thoughts. Who knows it may give you, your direction of life!

Our life is not given us to measure, but to treasure. Not to feel any pressure, but to be someone’s pleasure. Not to be someone’s eraser, but to be someone’s inspirer. 

Keep directing your thoughts in the direction of your passion. That’s the direction of this life. Thanks for reading.
