To be so close yet so far…

To be so close yet so far…
After all these years I feel, there you finally are…
Still, time and distance are keeping us apart…
Can’t wait to win this battle…
Get closer to you and settle…
I don’t seek any kingdoms…
All I seek are love hymns…
To win you, to keep you by my side…
To have you as my love, to have you as my life…
I wanna be your soul and want you to be mine…
Any pain to me is just benign…
To be away from you feels like a crime…
All these years that passed by…
Every moment I waited, I prayed, I tried…
That I be successful, that I meet you and look you in your eyes…
Tell you, your importance, tell you you are mine…
No one’s and Nothing’s to keep me away from you, no one such is to come by…
But these are all my thoughts, will you take me as yours? If so, can you swing by?
So we lay in the grass and gaze Stars…
Maybe name a few, in hope, that once it starts…
May it never end and together we go far…
Beyond time and distance, maybe till death do us apart.

What’s happening around you is just a state….

Of being.Period.

I know it’s funny to end it with a full stop and then write Period, or not, depends on where you stand on the whole literature/grammar thing. But, gotta emphasize it right?!

So here’s what I’m trying to say; whatever’s happening around you, in your life, with people you know, with people they know, in lives of people you know, in lives of people they know, is all just a state of being.

How you ask? Let me explain, also, tie up your seat-belts cause this one I think is going to get a little technical. Whether or not, you have learnt an advance subject called Compiler Design, there used to be a topic of Machine design in it. I’ll break it down for the simple people out there, say you feel you’re hungry and you decide to eat at your favorite restaurant, what do you do? You step out, catch a mode of transport, get to the restaurant, get a table, order food, food comes, you have it, you pay for it (Don’t forget to tip! 😉 ), and then you’re done with your hunger(say for a few hours). But if you think, of this entire scenario as a process, and say you are a Machine( yeah the future is a little bit further where Man/Machine, doesn’t matter, although, human body itself is a complex machine, but we’ll may be take that up later), you were in different stages/states of being, walking/commuting/entering the restaurant/asking for a table/sitting down/checking the menu/ordering/waiting for food/food arrives and you eat and then you clear up your plate, pay for it, etc. Each of these moments were a state of being, and you progressed from one to another and so on to achieve what you decided, but was that your entire story? No.

The point I’m making is this, whatever’s going around you is not ‘your story’, it’s an arbitrary point in time(always moving), so your story is yet to be defined and is consistently being defined, by every choice/move you make. Food for thought.

Adios…  for now! 🙂

A whole of rife…

When I’m with you I feel I have everything I want in the world…
Usually, people think, I’m full of myself;
What they don’t know is that there’s emptiness, inside that hard shell, it’s vacuum…
Not a space that you can see, move or breath in,  not a place that you can ever think of as a world…
So I may be full​ of myself, truth is I find incomplete what I call my own self;
Liberation, from this hollow joy, liberation from the dark glory, liberation from the so-called legendary awesomeness;
what people think I’m; liberation from it all I seek and want us to be one; want us to add up to a sum…
A sum of joy..
A sum of life..
Perhaps a little coy..
Togetherness; a sum of you and I, a whole of rife..

Definitely Maybe…

Love it was or love it is.. was it love or what was it?
I thought it was or I thought it is.. or was it not then what was it?
Blanked I am or blanked was I.. or was I not? then what was I?
What I felt, I was sure.. or wasn’t I? then what happened there?
Are you sure? Of what you said.. or was it fear?
Fear of having found something, something real, of getting too close, afraid you were.
Did you understand it? Or confused you were?
Confused you still are.. you still are confused maybe..?
Nothing seems certain, nothing’s a cent percent sure.. everything could be definitive,
everything could be a maybe,
So definitely tentative,
So…
…Definitely maybe.

Find your sweet spot..

Hello again! All of you must say long time no see after seeing this post out, guess I’d just like to say that I was caught up with figuring out a few things and settling/smoothing a bunch of others. It’s nice to be back here, sharing my ideas, be it briefly.

So, all of you must have heard that story of father handing over a tiered newspaper containing the world map to his child to keep the kid busy and child comes back sooner than expected stating that he just turned the paper around, it was a man and when he fixed the man, the world was ok. You must have heard this story a many times, I first heard it from Robin Sharma in one of his podcasts. But what does it mean really? and why is this story relevant to the title here, finding out sweet spot? what am I trying to say? Is your mind boggling with all these questions right now?

Here’s what mean by it/how it’s relevant; Find the place you finally feel at peace, your personal life, your professional life, your social life, find your sweet spot, where don’t feel like a stranger anymore and then use it as your base to launch yourself into higher dimensions, use it as foundation and don’t lose it’s sight, do anything to persist/maintain and then build-upon it. No building is strong or can withhold an earthquake unless it has a really strong foundation.

Now there may be critics who’d say you should stay in one place, you should keep challenging yourself, and I don’t disagree, but what I want to emphasize on is that you need to have your sweet spot aka the baselines taken care of to give you support cushion or rather a base station to expand from. Until Next time! 🙂

Why do we procrastinate ?

Well I guess most of us know why we do so, ain’t it simple, we don’t want to face it.. whatever it is we’re procrastinating on. I’d say give yourself a day to play victim but not more, don’t hide away, don’t postpone it, face it! The more you keep pushing action away on something that’s necessary, the harder it becomes for you to get into the groove. Remember, it’s you who limits yourself. No one else.

Realize, that whatever it is you’re avoiding is important for you, it’s necessary for you to reach your next level. Not having the energy/courage to take it head-on shouldn’t stop you. You have all the energy and courage to get things done within you. All you gotta do is just take a deep breath, sleep it off if you need to but then be determined to crush it, be ready to destroy it, be sharp as a knife to strip the procrastination layer off of you and shine, shine bright! Go on, Rock it! Adios! Till next time! 🙂

Emotions are an investment

Think about it for a second, think deeply and then tell me if you don’t agree. Why is there disappointment? Why is there happiness? Why is there dissatisfaction? Why is there satisfaction? Why is there the feeling of achievement? Why is there depression? It’s all because of balanced and imbalanced emotions, just like investments. We should be wise about it, I know there are a lot of situations where it’s hard to control ourselves and we get so emotionally vested that we’re out of our minds, it get’s hard to think, get’s hard to control how we feel, happy/sad in fractions of seconds. Why do you think Emotional Intelligence is even a term or a criteria to assess people? It’s because a lack impacts decisiveness, it makes hard for one to make choices, it makes hard for one to think and act clearly, makes hard for one to focus and direct him/herself.

The way out? It’s to use and spend the emotional quotient wisely, it’s to have control over it. I know it sounds sadistic, but trust me it’s wise. Unless you have that person around whom you love the most in the world and that person reciprocates the same, it’s useless, in-fact harmful for you to be anymore emotionally vested than the other person. A person who can balance his/her emotions, can certainly take balanced decisions and can avoid getting hurt by his/her own emotions, which happens quite often in this world. So, don’t unleash the gates of your emotional river the minute you meet someone you think is worthy. Let time pass by, assess the other person’s investment and then reciprocate. I know, you must be thinking, what joy a relation would bring if it’s calculated? But, tell you what? let it reach the un-calculated phase first, don’t jump on the band wagon right away. Life requires being practical. Adiós (for now ofcourse! 🙂 )
