RELATIONS ON UNMET FULCRUMS

Relations, sometimes they exist on unmet fulcrums
You see its flow but always feel like a bystander
Who knows he has some stake there to talk about
But the indifference seldom lets you go beyond that
You visit those ends like the routine of your life
Yet you feel the sort of disconnect that is so known
That you never feel the need to sit with your senses
On why certain relations speak for you as they should
But there are still other relations that just fill the void
It could have been better, could have been more
You sometimes think in your moments of aloofness
But when it comes to walking the steps to there
You end up talking compulsions that lead you away
From the fulcrum of those unmet corridors of life
Some of them would have just loved to sit with you
Probably speaking the words you were looking for

THEY EVEN COMPROMISE THEIR IMMEDIATE TOMORROW..

COLORES INFINITUM

This is being human, this is being natural.

Most of us all are like that.

And in any lifetime, there cannot be a uniform way to go along than this.

This is the most pragmatic way to look at human life in today’s context – the context that is not solely self-defined for most.

Yes, people define it so – in the name of living in present, not going too deep in the future – a future that cannot be assessed – and in order to do so, they even compromise their immediate tomorrow – that is eventually to become their next ‘today’.

And they are not wrong in the ‘worldly sense’. Yes, majority is thrown into the throes of a calculation of ‘then’ that they don’t have any mean to look at. And yes, majority tries to come out of it by correcting ‘today’.

And that is natural. And that is pragmatic.

What is not pragmatic is ‘not thinking about your immediate tomorrow’.

A ‘today’ draws its sanctity from your yesterdays (and past experience) and your immediate tomorrow. Your immediate tomorrow gives you the reason to make your today ‘as better as you can’. And your yesterday adds learned experiences to that.

We are what we feel about us today but the feeling has its construct drawn from yesterday and is reasoned on needs of your immediate tomorrow.

The past is always about learning and the immediate future is always about wisdom of that learning as interpreted in your today.

A FACE SO CHARMING, A SMILE SO WARMING

Creation can be felt in different ways
And happiness is a way to look at it
Driven by the events in the moments
When we feel content with the flow
And want to live the moment forever
Living in today
And feeling it in every tomorrow
Creation speaks through that innocent face
That opened its eyes this morning
Staring at faces and colours around him
As if looking around to know his new home
As if trying to read the spaces around
His cry says all, his smile says all
Even if a word is not spoken
And the feeling is mutual, shared by all
Creation always conveys it’s elements to us
And a child’s birth is its purest moment
It wraps us in its joy
To pull us back from the forgotten feelings
It calls us back
Into a world that is somehow ours as well
With a charming face, with a warming smile
It tells us to come together and celebrate
What we don’t appreciate anymore
A life lived in now, a life built on this now
A newborn creates a spell around us
It asks us to live in the moment
Forgetting the ‘ifs’ of tomorrow
With a smiling face, with inquisitive eyes
It reminds us again the purity of innocence
That the world so easily forgets in its created ‘realities’

BE DEMANDING. LET THE LIFE BE DEMANDING.

Life – the context to live it like making it matter for you, every day, day after day – life for you – your identity for life – have to be mutually demanding.

Yes, life is demanding, but again, aren’t you demanding?

Don’t you demand from life, from the expectations that you have, from the people that you care for or from the people you don’t even seriously think of, from the circumstances that weave the elements of your life on a thread to make coherent aspects of living or chaotic phases of surviving?

So, don’t crib on life being demanding on you.

It’s a matter of who prevails on whom?

Life plays with you. You also play with life.

Be contemporaries. If you have to have your living in the context of life, your life needs to have its existence in the context of your identity.

Life, at times, may act and sound irrational. Don’t follow it then.

Synergise with the rational elements of life. Be an enthusiast to prevail over its irrational elements.

Go back to who you have been, who you are.

If you haven’t done so yet, start creating the construct of the basics that make for who you are.

Define the rationality in the context of your identity. Let your logic handle the irrational elements of life to work on the possibility of synthesis if possible.

Stop cribbing. Be demanding. Let the life be demanding.

Start playing. Start hitting. Start slogging.

HELP SOMEONE IN NEED, IT HELPS YOU BACK

Wish if you could make a wish come true, if you could set a dream see the day, if you could help bring smile to a face, if you could help restore peace in a life, if you could help alleviate the pain of suffering, if you could share the days of gloom, if you could share the moments of agony, if you could help reclaim a life – it is wonderful if you extend any of this assistance to someone in need in your day to day life – it helps them as well as it helps you.

It enhances the positive in you. It solidifies your emotive quotient.

You react positively to the life irrespective of the colour of life, independent of the shades of the moment.

You sleep peacefully when you see your cause through.

It makes your sphere of life a better place to live. It makes you a better human being.

But remember, never look down upon them who come across you and seek your help. Also, never help them because it lets you feel superior. That is a fallacy that is bound to come down, today or tomorrow and the sentimental repercussions could send you into depression.

Instead, you should feel thankful that life gave you a chance to realise the opportunity to contribute for your living here. Everyone gets this opportunity. Many of us don’t realise when they can matter or their ignorance deprives them of it.

Helping others in need should be driven by the inner urge of belief in the principle of co-existence that should further push you to feel dutiful to extend whatever possible assistance you could extend to the people in need who come across you.

Helping others in need multiplies the joy of life when you are going through a good phase of living. It helps you fight escapism and darkness when you find your life in clutches of negativities, internal and external.

Feel dutiful to help those who are in need. It purifies your soul. It validates your existence.

Be thankful to them that they became the cause to help you realise the good in you.

INTERACT WITH LIFE

Life creates notions – driven by one’s surroundings – the external and internal life energy regulating one’s rhythms – in proximity with one’s age, one’s body of experiences and one’s realms of learning..

Life creates notions – the symbolisms, that we follow, that we ask about – in varying proportions – based on how these notions interact..

Based on how life interacts with these notions, we move on to get on to the next stage – making viewpoints – at cross-sections of the muddled waters – at quiet of the peaceful shores – reflecting on the depth of the clear water – thinking on the events of a life in motion..

Life moves through these multiple interactions – making its own space – creating its own pace – finding its own world..

Life thus creates notions for you to interact with it – a process that consummates only when the death calls – interact with life to regulate its flow – communicate with life to organize its energy..

EVERY COMING DAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY

Every coming days is an opportunity. You may feel it to be similar to what it was yesterday. It may follow the routine that you followed on the passing day. Alternatively, it may take a different approach from what happened yesterday. It may throw surprises that you thought were not going to happen to you.

Every coming day, your today, may bring thoughts and events on these lines but the fact remains there, to be seen, telling you clearly that it’s a new day with new possibilities that you need to realize. Every coming day gives you an empty space to fill it with your colours, an empty slate to write on it the elements of your own making.

Your today, the every coming day in your life, is a mix bag of possibilities existing along with the uncertainty of a tomorrow that is going to be your next today.

Travelling along day by day with this uncertainty of tomorrow, the only certain element that you have is you; your awareness of you; your companionship with you; and your confidence in you.

You have what it takes to make an uncertain tomorrow to a today of feasible possibilities.

Every coming day is an opportunity for you to revisit you to realize the never-ending and newer shades of life that we come across but don’t notice or fail to notice.

Every coming day, that is your today, is a testimony to how you look at life, whether you move ahead to build further on what you were working on yesterday; whether you begin something new, constructive; whether you decide to cut the restrictive line shorter to make it disappear finally by start drawing a new line longer and reflective of you; whether you realize that what you have is only the coming day, your today, that your yesterday is gone, that the tomorrow is not yet here.

Life gives us a chance every day, to strengthen us, to reinvent us, to know us more the every coming day.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Yet..why do we fail to appreciate it?

EVERY COMING DAY IS A MEASURE OF YOU

“Every coming day is a testimony of you, of you being ‘you’ – how do you look at life today to make sense of what it was yesterday..

 
..whether you move forward to build further on something you built yesterday..
..whether you realize and work to make the line disappear or shorter, the line that was dragging you back yesterday..
..whether you realize that every day is a new day bringing with it new possibilities..
..whether you realize that making sense of each passing day is a positive way to build a life..
 
OR,
 
..whether you don’t realize or choose to ignore and waste the opportunity that the every coming day is for you..
..how do you get along with every coming day, how do you make sense of your every ‘today’, is thus a measure of you, of you being ‘you’.”
