Illusions and Emotions

Man Blindfolded

One day the illusion breaks, what you thought to be true, cease to be anymore…

What you felt was real, is only left in the deepest recess of your mind…

What you experienced, was all in a state of confusion or illusion…

The people you were attached to, moved on to progress in their lives…

You sat there feeling stagnant, waiting for those times to come back…

But everything has changed forever, no one remained the same anymore,

So with the good wishes, blessings and love forever alive in your heart,

Its time for you to move on today…

The broken illusion beckons to you, as you stand sad and distraught…

The shadows of time, will soon wreck the illusion apart…

All that will remain will be the memories you kept in your heart,

The emotions you expressed and the experiences you sought…

Very soon you will be free, starting at a new sunset…

The same sun setting, but in another corner of the world…

Making new memories while these sweet memories give you strength,

With gratitude in your heart and everlasting warm smile on your face

As the breeze lightly caresses the soul, wrapping you into a mystic embrace…

The thing about trauma…

Close-Up Photography of Hand Near Window

After a long time of trying to fool yourself into believing that you are a happy go lucky individual without any trauma or suppression in your individual life. Let us take a moment, reflect, introspect and come to terms with what’s happening within us. Life is different from what it seems to be. To be spiritual doesn’t mean to shun the world within your mind, which has suffered at one level. No blame game here. Nobody can be responsible for what your state of mind is or was at one point of time. It’s all your responsibility. The thing about responsibilities is, so long as you take them you should be just fine. It means you have the strength to go through the situation and you chose to take it up. If you have been given them, means you have the capability. But the knack of doing well in such situations, comes from believing in yourself. If you are that person who keeps telling yourself and others that you cannot do something, means that you have to be given another chance. You have to give yourself another chance, nobody else can give you another chance anyways.

Responsibilities are something which reminds you of how strong you are, it makes you the best of yourself. You couldn’t have done better if you chose to take the responsibilities. Yet, often what happens if something else. It makes us weaker. As we run away from responsibilities. Our families constantly tell us, remind us that we are made to be taking responsibility. It’s not that easy. It’s about believing in yourself. The day you believe in yourself, your ability, your capabilities, your strength, your faith in the divine. You should be just fine.

Life was meant to be used in order to be of use to others (Seva), life was given so that you could repay your karmic debts, life happened so that your karmic accounts could be settled. Life is an opportunity for you to learn. So failure, is not the end. It is that stepping stone which is essential. You will learn from it. So just because you couldn’t do something, doesn’t mean you can’t do anything. Your life is not as complicated as you end up making it to be.

You have been in a cocoon always, you could never have been a butterfly, and you would have never learnt how to fly if that cocoon of protection around you wouldn’t have broken off. You would always have been the typical individual. Today was a lesson, tomorrow is an opportunity to start afresh. So take the learning and make the required changes. Fly because you’re not meant to cry… its okay if you lost your warmth and protection, make it your choice not a compulsion.

If you have been broken, if you have gone through a lot, if life has handed you too much. It’s alright. You have been used to support, it is time to throw away those crutches now. Life is not meant to be wasted like this. I understand that problems keep coming, situations will keep coming. Nothing changes.

Some people understand you some don’t. Period. Everyone will come into your life, play their role and leave. It’s not about faking it in front of these people. It’s about being truthful to yourself. You are a strong individual. You have been through a lot. So think about those people in your life who have always been with you. They have been your strength. They will always be with you.

Responsibility isn’t a physical phenomenon. Doing something for someone isn’t physical. It’s a mental and emotion state. It needs strength. You need to believe in yourself to be able to do it. It’s about being so strong that you can take what life hands you with open arms. If it’s breaking you inside, if it’s wreaking havoc with your inner state of mind, and somewhere you’re fighting it inside, one day it will all come out. It won’t be good that day. You will cry a lot. You will fight a lot. You will break a lot. You will be lost. You will feel alone. You will feel like a failure. Like it’s the end.

But that’s not life. Life is more. You have to learn to come out of this. Some people are fast and some slow. Some people take responsibilities very fast, some never do… its okay to be the latter. But it shouldn’t end like that. Work on yourself. Make yourself stronger. You need to be there for yourself. Start building your inner core. Work on maintaining a balance. You have broken time and again… but we can’t stay broken, we eventually learn to build ourselves…

Now it’s time to build yourself from scratch, so build yourself the way you want to be. Be grateful that you got another chance and start now…

Take care of yourself, you deserve more, much more is within your hands than you feel, be strong and learn to be happy. Send forgiveness to the situation, give yourself time… time heals everything…

Women – need to be there for each other…

Lady in Beach Silhouette during Daytime Photography

Once again she dissolved into the notions of society,

She wanted to be someone, so she stood in the shadows,

Lurking around, waiting for there to be the right time,

The right moment never came, so she remained in the dark gallows…

boy, brother, child

One day she decided, today was the last it was going to be,,

Not one more day a woman was going to be so judged,

Not at least by another one of her own kind,

She expected them to understand, to care and be kind…

adult, backlit, child

She stopped expecting, started accepting,

This moment, she had changed, she had grown

Out of her naive, gullible sensitive self,

To lend a hand to others who were like her old self…

dawn, dusk, forest

To be the support, and care for women,

They needed to be there for each other first,

Hugging, caring, sharing and smiling women,

Needed to be there for each other….

‘Someone’ & ‘Innocence’

blur, calm, close-up

With innocent doe like eyes,

Innocence looked into ‘Someone’s’ eyes

Big tear drops rolled down her cheeks

As Innocence sat near the well and cried

close-up, eye, eyelashes

In this moment she felt lost,

All alone, in this big bad world,

Deceived, hurt and burning down in agony,

More tears arose…

child, girl, kid

‘Someone’ walked up to her and said,

Don’t cry my dear, don’t be upset

‘Someone’ extended a hand, with a promise to be there,

Innocence looked up and in those little eyes, saw the care…

couple, friendship, hands

Innocence trusted ‘Someone’ and gave her hand

‘Someone’ caught her hand and held it tight

A promise to safeguard strongly affirmed

‘Someone’ tugged her along together

Girl Staring at the Sky

Walking together for a long time soon they met a crossroad

‘Someone’ crossed over and just stood on the other side,

Innocence in the guise of a woman, waited for ‘Someone’ to come and take her together,

Innocence still waits for ‘Someone’, at the cross road, with her hands stretched out…

backlit, beach, clouds

Time passes and ‘Someone’ moved on, changed and became insensitive

Innocence tired of waiting these years, broke down,

She had realised ‘Someone’ was gone for ever, her only security was gone forever,

Now she was alone, strong and resilient, she wiped her tears and walked forth

adult, beautiful, brunette

That day innocence had turned into EMPOWERMENT!

Innocence had finally found her way, her tears were all dry and she confidently strode across…

Crying tears of joy, as the spirit of freedom danced within innocence

She quit mourning over a story in the past, that was never meant to be, the broken dream had now been forgotten as Innocence looked back into the sands of time from the other side of the cross road..

Standstill…Musing # 4

butterfly, close-up, forest

Escaping into a world of dreams

Running away from a chaos of thoughts

Retreating into the serenity of a subtle sunrise

A moment of silence echoing in the sound of words

Stillness around, everything went on but somewhere i stopped

With me time stopped, everything froze

Photo of a Girl Playing With the Camera

And I in that moment captured one of the most beautiful moments of life in the camera of my mind ….
