There is an insidious quirk to your brain that, if you let it, can drive you insane. Tell me if this sounds familiar to you:
You get anxious about confronting somebody in your life. That anxiety cripples you and you start wondering why you’re so anxious. Now you’re becoming anxious about being anxious. Oh no! Doubly anxious! Now you’re anxious about your anxiety, which is causing more anxiety.
Take a minute and name all the things that you love.
It’s okay if you take more than a minute to name everything, just make sure you don’t miss anything.
How long did you take to name yourself?
If you have to try to be cool, you will never be cool. If you have to try to be happy, then you will never be happy. Maybe the problem these days is people are just trying too hard.
Happiness, like other emotions, is not something you obtain, but rather something you inhabit. When you are angry and beat someone up, you are not self-conscious about your state of anger. You are not thinking to yourself, “Am I finally angry? Am I doing this right?” No, you’re out for blood. You inhabit and live the anger. You are the anger. And then it’s gone.
“Open your eyes, look within.
Are you satisfied with the life you are living?”
– Bob Marley
There are two major types of humans. One of them frequently says, “From here on, I’m going to live my life”. Other says “I’m just surviving my life” (with a sigh). What’s the big difference? We all live through this game of life. But, what’s the margin that decides whether we are living our surviving?
Sun is shining,
Father is snoring,
She giggles and says “ga ga gaaah.”
When he was about to end his life, it asked him to stop.
When she was about to lose hope of her life, it asked her to gain hope.
When he fell down for the first time, it told him not to repeat the same mistake again.
When she fell in love with him, it asked her to go and confess.
When he faced failure, again and again, it asked him to get up and run the race of life.
When a silence prevailed between the couple, it asked them to kiss.
“It” is constantly trying to communicate with each and every one of us. Few of us listen, but few of us do not care. It is trying to give us signs. It is trying to show the path of our life. What is it?
In our day to day lives, we meet few people from whose faces we can determine their pains, their dreams and their longing for a happy life. This was one among them…
Winter in Switzerland was at its peak. The room was occupied by a pretty couple. The fireplace provided the warmth.
‘1034 days’, She said blushing and turning pink. He was stroking her hair and kissed her forehead. They lay nearby the fireplace… covered in a blanket of wool. They kissed again. Their bodies glowed like gold. That night, it was time to make some passionate love and battle the cold with the warmth of their bodies. Beads of sweat fell on her cheeks. Now, they lay exhausted.
Words can impact and bombard your emotions, feelings, etc. We can easily hurt a person with our words, we can easily induce happiness and joy into a human being. Sometimes words would create a permanent mark in our hearts and minds. It may be sweet as a honey or bitter like a citrus peel. Wow! Words can own and play with you!
