To the Goodness in us

There is goodness in everything, we have to look for it. Sometimes we see things with our eyes open and heart closed, so we can’t see the goodness in them. And sometimes we see things with open eyes and open heart but still we can’t see the goodness, as the eyes of goodness in those things are closed. It’s not time yet. So we have to wait, because goodness is present in everything, just looking for a situation to come out.

We can see goodness in others, only if we are good within ourselves. We have to be good with others and spread happiness among others. We can’t expect to find goodness in others if we search for flaws in others. We have to accept the people the way they are. Because life is only once lived. So let’s live it happily.

Our universe was made up of all good things. It was the mixture of the evil mind and the good things, that gave birth to the bad things. Let’s purify our brains. We should always look for things which gives us happiness with our good mind. Let us make things which generate happiness. Let’s be the source of happiness. Let’s seek for goodness in others. If we concentrate our mind and focus our eyes towards goodness, the two eyes of GOOD becomes one due to the amount of concentration applied, and do you know what we will find in that process? Yes. GOD. The God in ourselves.

Keep the goodness spreading. Thanks for reading.

One year with two ears

Just when everything was darker, I saw you shining with your passion as the fire.

Jitters in my thoughts got cleared seeing you. I took your candle as inspiration & started to follow the path of my passion.

Jingle bells in my ears, were your words which made a way to my heart, where they will stay forever. 

Journey began in December, 2014 with rays of hope and happiness as the epicenter.

July 2015 it was though when I started to follow this path sincerely and began to love what I do.

Joyfully I penned down my heart with words going through systolic and diastolic movements.

Jumping through word by word, I tried to build my way to make it more meaningful and worth reading.

Justifying my views with fellow writers, I started to improve my skills and thinking ability by gaining knowledge from various sources.

Juggling through different themes, I wanted to make my word clear that only by following our passion, we can find our destiny and purpose of our life.

Jumbled ideas always played hide and seek in my neurons, which one by one I arranged them in an order to make them inspiring.

Joke to some was my path followed, but deep inside my heart knew it was what I was made for.

Jewels to some, who inspired and encouraged me on this journey, without whom I would have been never confident enough to follow the path. To them I thank much and much. This post is for them. As this weekend Blogadda’s prompt is “It’s about others”.

Joining my passion with writing and manufactured words as the outcome, told me writing was my passion and blog was the platform.

Jack and Jill went up the hill, in the same way I started to climb the hill of passion. Climbing since December,2014 (1 year), with both ears.

Juxtaposing(comparing) this blog since its birth on December 7th 2014 and today December 6th 2015, I can say that not only it’s been one year of the blog, but it’s also been one year on my path of passion, my purpose of living.

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. 😉

Festival time: The walls of Diwali

Diwali (11/11/15): It’s not just a festival of light emitted from the burning crackers, it’s also a festival of light shining within you because of the goodness dwelling in you. It’s not just a festival of cleaning homes, it’s a festival of cleaning all the doubts and for burning with passion.

First of all wishing every one a very very happy Diwali. Diwali, which is known to be a festival of lights is also a festival which bring prosperity and happiness. We celebrate it by burning crackers and by offering pooja to the Goddess Lakshmi. Before the onset of Diwali every family keeps their homes clean as there is a belief that the Goddess Lakshmi visits and blesses the homes which are clean and well decorated with lights.

So let’s take one more step towards the deeper interpretation of Diwali festival. Our body, the homes in which we live literally, also needs to be blessed with happiness and prosperity. Isn’t there a need to clean our body!? Remove all the badness that has found a home in your body. Let only the good rule your body. That’s why people celebrate Diwali as even Happy new year. The death of bad within us and rebirth of good. So let’s celebrate Diwali as a festival of new birth, new mindset.

What is the significance of burning crackers on the day of Diwali? The significance of burning crackers is to remind the victory of good over bad. Even though the bad may be heavier than the good in some cases, the weight of badness itself causes it to drown in the oceans of time and makes the good victorious. It is always the good that wins over the bad and bad burn to ashes.

What’s the significance of decorating homes with diyas and worshipping Goddess Lakshmi for prosperity and happiness?
So this decoration is an indication to follow your instinct. To decorate your home with diyas means to burn your passion with confidence and spread the light within your body. To decorate your body with passion, confidence and to shine from within. To decorate your souls with flowers of goodness and sweets of happiness.

It is time to carry this flame of our passion forward to the generations to come. So let’s build the walls of Diwali, which prevents the bad to enter our body and also which keeps the good within us safe and comfortable. Let the good in you rule the homely body. Decorate your soul and shine from within. Happy diwali. Happy new year.

Start thinking in an Impetus way

State of mind will be in a suffering mode if you keep your thoughts in a buffering mode.

Never keep your mind in a buffering mode. It doesn’t mean that we should take a decision quickly. It means that the decision should be brought into action quickly. It depends on our mindset. Don’t allow your brain to become stagnant by making it to think on the same topic. Take the decision to the next step. Bring it into action. Let the thoughts flow. Never let your thoughts to buffer, because it forms clouds of doubt in our mind. No buffering in thoughts, no suffering in life.

It takes time to take a decision because it is related with choosing. Choose the best after taking all the parameters into consideration which are related to the decision. Impetus (a force which makes an activity happen quickly) thinking makes it easier and wiser to take the decision. Be the force. Be the driving force which drives you to your destiny. You didn’t come in this world to go. You came here to leave some part of yourself here. That amount depends on the decisions you take. So while taking a decision, take opinions of your heart and loved ones and only then take a decision. And once you take a decision, don’t let it buffer again. Consider  opinions after that decision as fog. Move on. Because beyond these fog of opinions and clouds of doubt, lies your destiny. So shape your destiny.

Yu and Mi (Part-2)

Yu and Mi
(Part -2)
*****
** This is a work of fiction.**

I was feeling nervous while climbing the stairs of the Apollo Hospitals. Even though she said ‘let’s meet next week’ the previous day, I knew she said it just because I had said meeting her tomorrow was like meeting her next week. So I was ready for a date which will be one of a kind. Which is gonna be in a hospital. I hardly slept the previous night, as I was occupied by her thoughts, and when I slept, she was in my dreams.

As I reached the third floor, my temple began playing its symphony in the worst unsynchronous way possible and an earthquake broke down in my heart with her first look as the epicenter. She had occupied all my thoughts and dreams.

I have trained my mouth to sync with my brain this time, so that my mouth doesn’t speak anything without a permission from my brain, again. I have prepared some topics in advance, if in case my mouth falls out of words. I wondered whether a person can fall in love with another person to such an extent by just looking at her/him, without any information about that person. I was not sure. I was yet to discover it.

As I reached the room no.304 and was about to open the door, I felt as fearful as a person feels while opening the door of a haunted house at midnight. And when I opened the door, I saw a ghost in blue laying lifeless on bed with his face facing towards me and the mouth open. I felt afraid as I took my steps towards him. I screamed “uncle,uncle”! But no response. My heart-beat at that time was audible even to the patient next door. I was about to touch the body but within a second the life-less body sprang to life. Goosebumps.

I was about to run but then the ghost spoke “Hey my son, I was sleeping. I am glad that you care for me so much. I am absolutely fine my son. Come,have a seat.” My nervousness came down but still I felt embarrassed as he always addresses me as his son. Damn! I have a thing for your daughter! And by the way where is your daughter, I wanted to ask him.

“Today no one came to meet you, uncle?” I asked him. Being safe is always the best option.

“My wife will arrive here by today afternoon and my daughter went to a pharmacy store for medicines, she will be back in 10 minutes. That’s it! That is my family. And even you came to meet me” He includes me in his family. I sat on a chair nearby him and was thinking how to start a conversation with her dad. From where to start.

“So what do you do beta?” he asked adjusting himself inorder to sit on his bed. A question for which every parent has a patent to ask any youth in any situation, doesn’t matter even if their bones of hands are broken or not! Instead why don’t they ask ‘What is your passion beta?’

But then suddenly the doors opened up. A powerful storm disguised in the form of a girl appeared from the other side of the door. I was stunned by this epitome beauty that has a power to hypnotize the whole world with just one smile. I have heard about Bermuda Triangle before, but for the first time I saw my own version of Bermuda triangle. The triangle formed by her two eyes and her mouth as the three vertices of the triangle, instantly became my version of Bermuda triangle. My thoughts took off from my brain and landed in that triangle but they never came back. I think they got lost in that triangle. I think I need a seat belt for not to fall in this triangle. I never saw such a beauty anywhere. Describing her in just words would just be an insult.

“Hey Yu, I thought you would come next week!”, she said with a sarcastic tone.

“Then I think I should go”, I said laughing too.

“Hey dad, here are your medicines. I have already paid our house rent, current bill and LIC beema amount. So you don’t have to worry papa. Doctor said you would be discharged in two days.” She said to her dad. But she didn’t reply to me. She didn’t tell to stay. She didn’t tell to go. So I would stay.

“Aww! You are my son. You are so caring and responsible. God bless you Rashmi beta” said her dad with a feeling of pride. How proud parents feel if they see their children fulfilling their responsibilities!

“Papa, I am your son. I am your daughter. I learnt everything from you.”, she said this with a sheer confidence. I wanted to ask uncle what would he prefer me to become, his son-in-law or daughter-in-law!

As this daughter and dad pair were talking with each other, I began looking around. I expected a lot this morning and now in this 5-star hospital, with all these medicines served in the menu and the sound of these medical equipments acting as the background music, I was having a date one of a kind. WOW!

“Ha beta. So what do you do?”, said uncle interrupting my chain of thoughts. Huh! Parents!!

“B. Tech third year uncle”, I said having no spark of an engineer graduate.

“Oh! That’s great! Engineering ha! Some people don’t do it just because it is tough” said uncle.

“There’s nothing great in doing engineering uncle, it is like a 10th class nowadays. And it’s not about being tough uncle, it is just because it is followed by the most. How wrong we are! ” I said having experienced this 3 years of hell.

“Hmm. But engineering is famous. And many students join engineering which makes it tougher.  Such is the competition. And this competition gave rise to commercial age of education. But competition is imoprtant to succeed.” Said uncle. Rashmi was not that interested in this conversation. Change the topic uncle.

“No uncle. We don’t have to compete. We are already complete. We just have to follow our passion. Not the passion and profession of others. If and only if our passion turns into our profession, It will help our nation. Life is simple uncle, complications are in our mind. Everyone is given a key to one’s passion, but we keep searching for doors of others’ passion. So the door to our own passion remains closed. Finding our passion is like finding a soul-mate and following it is like keeping her happy forever.” I said mentioning some quotes which I wrote few weeks earlier. I like topics on life and passion rather than education and degrees.

“Wow.. Yu.. That’s amazing.. I really liked this soul-mate and door-key part. Very well said. I am impressed. I am really feeling good now.” Said Rashmi who was feeling uneasy so far. Yes. Her looks are magic to me and my words are magic to her.

“Thank you so much Mi. By the way what do you do?” I asked her and expected ‘I love you, Yu’ in return from her side.

“I got married two years ago.”
