Strong I stay!

Strong ….I stay

Never to be swayed

No reason, no season

No delusion, no knoll

Nothing can stop me

No one can hold me

—xxx—

For I am concealed

I am ethereal

I take no offence, I see no sins

I don’t appraise a good deed either

I measure them alike

It’s the belief in me that grins

—xxx—

No shape defines me

No structure can justify

I reside inside you

I make you laugh and cry

I can never age

I can never die

—xxx—

I am the fire inside you

I am your spirit

When you are upset, I cajole

When you thrive, I cheer you more

Strong, I stay

Never to be swayed

—xxx—

The Dark Forest – Part 2

Excerpts from ‘The beginning’ for reference:

The cries had stopped,

the shadow disappeared.

The scarf was still there;

no human but a string of pearls

lie there, half – scattered.

PART -2

I stared at the pearls with utter disbelief

No sign of a mortal nearby,

only the doomed silence

and the moist sheaf.

I felt my body shudder,

the breeze had stopped;

fear gripped my mind,

I stood there motionless,

my thoughts, intertwined.

—xxx—

At that moment of eerie

a thick mist started growing

“Go back, Run!”,

thought my sane self.

But instead, my curiosity won.

And so, I marched ahead

to the shady woody chalet,

where a water wheel spun.

—xxx—

“The grieving woman lives in the house”

reasoned I with myself.

I must check on her,

thought I, “she might need my help”.

I aired forward

but my gait swapped

from canter to a trot,

trot to a schelp.

when suddenly…

 

The mystery unfolds further in ‘Part – 3‘. Until then…

Stay safe, stay happy.

The Dark forest – ‘The beginning’

Dark was the forest, gloomy were its leaves

Bleak was the space, solitude in the air

No light, no plight, no reflection, no sight

Afar, I heard the wail and cries,

A frail shadow, I saw

sitting behind the farthest tree

Shrouded in a veil so grimm,

the old woman greaved.

—xxx—

She sulked in silence

holding a red scarf

My mind, filled with dilemma

“Should I go ahead?,

Must I help?”-

A pool of questions in my head,

Oh… I felt so drowned.

I braved my fear

but my steps – dwarfed.

—xxx—

As I moved ahead with caution,

I got a strange sensation

The cries had stopped,

the shadow disappeared.

The scarf was still there;

no human but a string of pearls

lie there, half – scattered.

 

Keep reading….the story continues in ‘The Dark Forest – Part 2.

Soul

Let there be gravels, let there be stones

Let there be obstacles, let there be thorns

Blocks, hitches, hurdles and bumps

Bring them on … Oh life!

For the mind complains, the heart mourns

but when the soul is pure, it triumphs!

————————————————xxx————————————————–

The mind fears, the heart gets worried

but the path has been chosen;

the soul has decided.

It won’t fail, It won’t lose

It will walk the coarse path,

be it, scuttled or scurried.

————————————————xxx————————————————–

Let there be hurdles, let there be hindrances

Let there be obstacles, let there be thorns

No misery too colossal

It cannot be distracted

It will learn, it will try

It may win, it may lose

It may rise, it may fall

It knows no pros and cons.

————————————————xxx————————————————–

Have a wonderful day everyone. Cheers to the spirit in each one of us!

Cheers to the soul! Have an eventful weekend. 🙂

Much love,

Sonali

Your Passion and Others Opinion

What is your passion?

What do you really want to do with your life?

Are you happy with your current work?

These are the questions which we often hear or  ask ourselves. Often these questions come to our mind when we are not happy with our work for whatever reasons (lets not get into that) or when we come across some documentaries in which how a poor/common person became successful and rich just following his/her Passion. Sometimes these unfavorable situations (not liking your work) or sudden motivations  from documentaries/autobiographies/biographies give us a kick to do something with our life. In that moment, either we say one of the following things:

I am too old for this

I have no time to pursue my passion

I am too young for this

I want to but don’t know if there is a future

People around me think that this is a bad idea

I believe that age limit, time limit, people’s opinions and insecurities can’t stop us to pursue our passion. I think that some of us have mixed up the two words ‘Passion‘ and ‘Hobby‘ and assumed that they are the same (they are not). If you haven’t and still not dedicating little bit of your time on your passion, apart from your daily schedule then you must ask yourself that

Have you really cared about your passion?

Did you try to pursue what you love and make it your dream project?

Now, you might say pursuing passion and have a good earning from it is quite difficult. Yes, it is true and I agree but here lies the problem. The problem is to seek for results even before taking the first step towards your goals. The problem is that we start questioning ourselves that

What is going to happen if I leave my 9-5 job and pursue my passion?

Well, I would say give your passion a chance, be good at what you love (to do) and then use it to create some business opportunities. I believe some of you have answers but still one of you (maybe You) are not sure about what I am saying. So let me try once again to convince you that why you need to give your Passion a chance? (not going to leave anyone behind)

First, let me ask you a simple question and if your answer turns out to be ‘Yes’ then I would say this blog failed completely and maybe I am wrong. So, here is my question to You

Is there a single successful person in the world who was not passionate about his/her work?

I would say, None (If there is/was then please comment below). Every rich and successful person has a beautiful and motivating story. A story in which they were fascinated, motivated and passionate about something. Something for which they sacrificed their normal life and worked hard to turn that something into a product. Yes they failed but did they stop?. No, they worked even harder and now we read/write about their success stories. Are you convinced now? No!! (let me try even harder)

We want to be successful in our lives. Now, definition of success differs from person to person. It is kind of relative to our needs. So lets say we want to be our own boss or we don’t want to just work 9-5 jobs because it’s repetitive and boring. Agreed?? Then we must ask ourselves:

What are we doing to achieve our desire?

Switching from one job to another for higher pay-checks or to get to higher positions. Does switching from one job to another every year or two not bring instability in your life? If it doesn’t then how long is it going to work? Or if it does then Why are you scared about following your passion and your dream? Why not give passion a chance?

Please don’t get me wrong as I am not trying to influence you to quit your jobs and pursue your passion. I am asking you to at-least start dedicating 1 hour/day of your life towards your passion; use your passion to create something (Yes, that something which makes people RICH)  and you’ll be amazed to see the results. Now, the results might come early or be delayed (that depends on your dedication) but it will be fruitful; if not in terms of money then in terms of happiness. If it didn’t work then at least in the end you can tell yourself that “I tried but didn’t work” or You can write me back and trust me I will again try to convince you.

Your passion could be anything. Maybe you like to create music, maybe you are into arts, cooking,  archery, playing “clash of clans” or whatever…it doesn’t matter. What matters is the story behind it. Your story: how you became so passionate about it? So, passionate that you didn’t get to know when it turned from hobby to your passion . Your struggle, your failure and how you lost your motivation but you gathered your scattered pieces again and kept going. In the end, this story and the outcome of your passion in terms of product in the market will define you and you will love it.

People around us also play an important role in affecting our thoughts a lot, in a good or bad way. If you are around motivating people, your efficiency will increase because you’ll also get motivated. On the other hand if you are surrounded by people who don’t have any idea about your field of interest, they often start making fun or tell the end story that how you will fail if you are going to pursue it. Well, I will say before getting influenced by those people ask yourself that

What have they done in their life?

Have they given a chance to their passion?

If your answer is “No” then stay away from them. Don’t get me wrong, I am totally in favor of criticism. In fact, I believe criticism can help you to grow but then you have to be sure the person who is criticizing you has some knowledge about the field you are working on. Most of the successful people around the world followed a mantra when they were working hard to bring their dreams into reality. The mantra was to cut-off themselves from the world and surround themselves with few motivating and highly skilled people. They did this to stay motivated and informed about their mistakes when working on a product. Once the product was finished then they opened themselves for feedback and criticism from all kinds of people to fix the issues (still the preference to majority rather than individual is given to make any changes in the product. Makes sense!).

In the end I would say:

Try to be positive without thinking about the future result. Try to be positive for the sake of your love towards your passion. Get into the zone to be focused and positive. Do what You like to do. Doesn’t matter if it is a small or a big thing. Create an idea (Yes, You need only one), follow your heart, prepare to fall but stand up and start again. Just remember, the only one that can stop you to follow your Passion is YOU. So, give a chance to your passion, be successful, create your story and motivate others around you.

I have started following my Passion, have You? If not then what are you waiting for? – Jet-Set-Go 

Have a nice day.

Rahul

Odd one out ?

The odd one always stands out;
alone in the crowd
like the dark storm cloud.
It yearns inclusion;
to belong, to connect
to accord, to associate
to befit the congregation.

It wants to fit in,
wants to feel akin
but it has been gifted,
its solitude – thrifted.
It is unique, the only one of its kind.
No clone, no twin;
its the curse of mutation
to which it shall bind.

The ‘Fall’ diaries

Fall (season) in all its glory,

humming the past summer story.

Orange leaves, mud-laden roads,

the smell of spiced pumpkin soup

but the trees age,

withered and hoary.

—xxx—

Always so bewitching,

to see the changing shades of nature.

Migrating birds, hibernating animals,

jaded eyes, weary demeanor;

all seemingly caught

in the act of caricature.

—xxx—

The land will be shrouded soon

by a white serape.

The trees sore,

yearn and mourn;

a veil of leaves

will cover their bark no more.

—xxx—

The last glimpse of tan,

the last song of harvest,

the last luncheon under the sun,

before the grey skies settle again,

the colours fade away and the monochromes reign.

—xxx—

A tiny boat

A tiny boat can…

                       carry one through

                       the vicious oceans,

                       be the saviour of a despaired soul

                      lost in the vast sea,

                      help discover new horizons,

                      be small yet powerful

                      like a decree,

                      be tiny yet capable of

                      tearing down through commotions.
