Violence, hatred, corruption.
It is there. Everywhere.
It is not easy to cleanse the world at once.
So, let’s keep it simple.
One person at a time.
Listen to your inner voice.
Let it be your guide.
To do what is right.
Don’t ever let yourself down.
Manifest plainness, embrace simplicity, reduce selfishness, have few desires – Lao Tzu
Life like the ocean
Days like insistent waves
Rise and fall tediously
Sometimes swirling and rolling
Sometimes slow and lazy
Sometimes just crazy
Thrashing over rocks furiously
So, like the waves
With the rhythm of the sea.
When life gives you with options, one always wonders, what is the best possible choice it can make for it to be the right decision..
When one has the time in hand, one feels guilty about not making productive use of it.
But, what does that mean? Does working for somebody else make one productive only because one can get money out of it?
But, is it right to be the master of one’s own life? To only do things that make one happy. Is it being selfish or is it just self-love?
When one spends all the time doing things that mean nothing to the outside world, but everything to yourself, is it good enough? Is it called art?
Or, when one spends all the time doing things for others without giving importance to one’s own desires is that good enough? Is it called a successful career?
What one fails to realize is, it is one’s own life. One should choose to do whatever it wishes to do without worrying about what the others do, what the others think, and what the others might say.
There is no purpose to fulfill in this world. There are many ways of looking at life. There are different paths to explore and innumerable things to learn. All one needs to do is learn to survive and choose to always remain happy.
I close my lids and ponder.
What’s to be written on the pages of life.
But all I see is darkness, grains-
Like sensations of stars.
I lose myself in the patterns.
Taking deep breaths,
I fill my insides with air.
In the light-headedness I float.
I float with a gentle smile away.
