T is for Time: Day-20

Time is a very twisted and a turning phenomenon which never gets tired of travelling from one point to another. It takes everything with it and we never are on the same plane of time again. Time keeps creating new situations, new challenges and we have to face them and make the most of it. We have to learn from them and excel in our life. Time is the measurement quantity which we use for scheduling events and also for sequence of activities. It is not time on which we all run and live. It is on moments. Every person has his/her own sheet of time. Time always deceives us by following different patterns.

Sometimes time moves quickly than a clock and sometimes it moves slower than a turtle on a clock. But time goes nowhere. We are seeing at time depending upon our perspective. When we are busy time we feel as if time is moving quickly and we are getting bored, we feel as if time is moving slowly. It is an illusion. Our clock is not the real-time. The moments we make out of it is the only reality. With every time period there is a turning point associated with it. There is a timing. We have to sync to it to get the best of it.

Haiku on time:

Time is illusion
Only moments which we build 
is reality.

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 20 and it is on the letter ‘T’. ‘T’ is for Time. Time is an illusion but there is a timing of it.

T

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. Have a beautiful week ahead. And also the last week of the challenge. Take care. Make the most of moments.

I have reduced the online presence to a great extent. It is like an illusion and carrying away the time away from me. So just sitting back and building real moments and cherishing them. Two days back relatives came to  our home and they were talking about present generation children remaining attached to screens ( Tv, Mobiles, Tablets, Systems and Laptops). They said everyone is wasting time for hours and losing the real moments of life. I also realized it. May be that’s the reason I am not using more than half an hour on internet these days. I feel good. Have a good time.

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.
