Being aware

We need self awareness more than being aware of world around,, to make the world inside us beautiful first ,, and then that beauty will start outpouring by its own to make the world around us beautiful,”

Amalga

With this wandering quest

Like Hazy morning mist

Faded unclear vision

And there meets a serene calm spring,

Restoring a feeling of inner peace

Nothing better to say

Nor anything left to be done

Now just sit back and relax

And watch the show,

Planning or Acceptance!!

So often I encountered the question ❓

What I really want ❓

As much it’s hard to resolve this equation,

That much often I face this situation,

Is life meant to be planned?

Or it just need to be accepted?

Is life been already designed?

Or we need to learn skills to design it?

It’s mysterious,

It’s disturbing,

Still its unable to hold on to one notion!

Sometimes it flows in our favour,

Sometimes it uncover totally different picture,

That’s why our perceptions swings,

Encoding happiness and peace with different strings,

From planning to just mere accepting it,

Is it all the mind game ❓

As it doesn’t want to live disturbed for long,

So it plans when it’s spring time,

And then in harsh times , it resolves to just accept what’s offered,

It takes time to switch it’s stint,

And it happens so often,

Thus it’s effects keep changing with time,

From disturbing me earlier,

To making me think now,,

Asking this question ❓

Is life meant to be accepted ❓

Or I need to plan it❓

Today is important

What will happen tomorrow,

Or day after tomorrow,,

Who knows the future,

Who can tell the upcoming story,,

It’s all mystery,,

No one has any clue,

Still we prefer to live in its imagination,

What if it turns out to be in our favour,

What if it comes out with a different narrative,,

Fear of different than our propositions,

Excitement of facing favourable conditions,

And In this thinking process,

Leaving the whole action happening right now,

The magic of living right now,

Today is the real life happening for us,

Today is the magic that should be exciting us,

Everything else is just an imagination,

Life’s flow

Flowing and flowing,

Sometimes like calm river,

Sometimes jammed sever,

Sometimes flash flooded,

Unstoppable and undeterred,

Sometimes Passing through valley of flowers,

Sometimes piercing through scorching deserts,

Sometimes falling over vertical cliffs,

Enriching it’s journey with varied experiences,,

Sometimes narrowing its size through narrow canyons,

Sometimes widening its presence to maximum in the plains,

It’s a journey which never stops midway,

And finally Ends it’s existence in it’s destined bay,

It’s harsh,it’s smooth,

It’s painful and also pleasure in its route,,

Such is the life’s flow,,

It has always much more to show,,

Sleep!!! Sleep!!!

Once again, It’s call for midnight,

Only nocturnals are left upright,

Yet another awake night,

Inner voices are calling to sleep,

It’s been an hour or more,

My eyelids have been in perfect lock,

But it’s the mind who holds the control,

It’s wandering about every aspect it got across,

Like it’s going to end all confusions tonight,

Like it’s the only time to plan everything right,

Like right now only, it can see the clear picture,

Like these moments are going to be very crucial for my future,

Making the wines out of every event happened today,

Taking me in and out of this imagination fray,

It’s strange how it’s the most difficult thing to restrain,,

And yet we make efforts to take whole world under our rein,

Call it important or just insomania,

Still it teaches some real aspects we ignore,

It’s our mind who holds power over all outer cores,

And it’s only responsible for every moment we live in disturbed state,,,
