share a smile, the world needs one, needs two, needs many

. .
. .
problems
.
.
well . . . . .
well . . . . .
.
you and i have problems to deal with?
seriously?
there are sentient beings worrying about what to eat,
there are people struggling for a refuge ,
humans battling to guard themselves from the war of cold
alas! the list goes on 

you and i have a problem to be taken care of? 
seriously?
problems like how to shed the fats off?
worries like where to wander off for this weekend? 
are you tensed about what to cover your flesh with, for the party? 

you and i can do wonders
and i know you are willing 
an  act of aid be it as trivial as insignificant, can do wonders
when you have nothing to offer 
offer them a penny of smile, 
when you have nothing to feed them with
feed them a teaspoonful of hope mixed with sweets of faith

if you can't help them 
at least help yourself 
your problems are not problems in real sense
your worries are only a matter of perspective 
if you can't help them
at least help yourself to cheer yourself up
and today if you smile 
i have done my part 
now it is your turn to bring a curve on someone else's 
everything in this universe is bridged 
today if you smile 
tomorrow someone else will 
someday everyone will....... 
and may be one day even i might.....

...  the world is forgetting how to smile in the pursuit of comfort, joy, and stability which they hardly acquire because people are forgetting what they are looking for is already there, you just have to unveil it with a smile.... so smile and say "curves"....

no otherwise, it's good this way....

...
...
...well
...well
...
resonating with the beauty 
everywhere i wander, i fly
for now as i fly, i need not flap my wings  
for now being here is beautiful
for now being there is alluring
even the absence is full of presence 

a big boon of being bestowed with love
i can't imagine myself otherwise.....
for whatever happens in the days to come
i can't afford to think otherwise 
for all that mattered was you 
for all that matters is you 
for all that will matter is you...
     thankyou.. :)

no otherwise, it's good this way.

i wish


.......
......well
......well
.......

i was alone
you were accompanied
i was not at home
you were surrounded by best people.
i was helpless
you didn't care at all
or may be you did
but that wasn't enough
i stood for you in the worst of my times
i backed you in all the bittersweet phases of your life
you abandoned me when
i needed you in subtlest of ways
you surrendered when
it was your time to express...
i am happy for your success 
but i am sad for myself...
for all these years 
the dreams i built 
shattered into pieces 

i wish 
  i don't lose the faith in humanity 
  i don't lose faith in myself 
  i start living like nothing matters 
  i start acting like it never was true 
  i wish i never think of you all the time
  i wish i could just hibernate for days, for years..
i just wish and why all the wishes are limited to wishes 
i wish a miracle happens 
i wish that i do not  wish anything at all........

don't get emotionally attached

strength is all I have got
be strong! 

i fought a fight of a great warrior,
for sure there were many barriers...
i resisted the strong emotional tides
i withstood the hurricanes of love
but i gave up, i had to.. 

the winds of change were vehement
dreamy desires subdued the glory of love 
love fell short infront of ambitions.
memories of wonderland ran into no-where-land.

worried i am not, for i gave up all that i had 
i don't have dreams to bait 
but i would have given all that i owned...
imperfect, penniless and helpless i am 
i had only my love to offer

i love you but
don't get emotionally attached.
i miss you but
don't get emotionally attached 
i know attachment ain't good.

be strong my dear 'me' ... you have to help yourself , noone else going to come ..karma is playing its role.. be positive stay strong stay strong stay strong dear 'me'

the equilibrium

I have a feeling that the equilibrium of my life has been disturbed!! Chaos!
Who is held responsible for the chaos? The thing that led to the chaos can not be determined!

I am not sure whether to call it a Chaos? or a bliss? or nothing?
It for sure is not a bliss as of now, may be at some point it might turn into a bliss.  Only time has the answer.

When and how does a system of equilibrium disturbed? I can not imagine our earth deviating from its own axis and start with a new orbit? what will happen to our seasons? the beautiful summer, chilly winter, awesome spring and lovely autumn, will those seasons ever exist? or will it be just some winter always? Although I won't complain much if it is always lovely summer.
But I can not imagine something bad, if something like that happens(god forbids), I think we will have a hard time but time will heal everything and hopefully we will cope up and tell our grandchildren nice stories about the beautiful nature, lovely seasons.

So, the equilibrium has been disturbed, i can not do much because any system to be in equilibrium needs more or less equal and opposite reactions to occur( as I studied in chemistry somewhere.)
I wished to be in such an equilibrium that won't be affected by any catalyst no matter how reactant the catalysts are. I also did not wish for a static equilibrium system, i wanted it to be a dynamic one.  but alas the system has been catalysed, time played its roles , the circumstances or the ambience in which the chemical reaction took place played its vital roles. Nothing can be blamed, nothing can't be blamed.

Well equilibrium sure is some thing very nice and rare.

attachment

Attachment is not a good thing, neither is complete detachment. 
You have to use your ability to watch (as done in vipassana meditation) attachment and understand it, how it is an impediment for your growth spiritually and otherwise. 
   For it is an illusion that the person (or the thing ) to whom you are attached makes you happy, makes you soulful. There is so much fuss about Soul mates, soul mates might be true but you have to realise that attachment whatsoever will hamper you in the pursuit of real happiness. 
Attachment makes us happy but that happiness is delusional, real happiness is unconditional, real happiness is not only presence of happiness it is also absence of suffering and every conditioned things are of impermanent nature. 
For understanding suffering because of attachment, we can meditate on impermanence. Everything that arises out of certain causes and condition(which means everything, every being) are impermanent. Humans can comprehend only the gross impermanence, to understand the subtler impermanence, we have to meditate on momentariness, which is an outcome of impermanence, it says every thing that arises because of certain causes and condition are changing every moment. 
So if you are attached to someone(or something) at the present moment that someone after some moments, is not the one you got attached neither you are the same person who got attached. 
So everything is of changing nature. Nothing is permanent, every thing is dependently originated.

Ultimate reality ! I just am writing something I have in my mind, my understanding of the concept of emptiness. I think if I write down, it is a sort of meditation, it might help me overcome problems in my life that I am facing presently. Also by writing this, I will get to know someday where was I wrong. 

Practice Compassion along with wisdom (that realizes emptiness of intrinsic nature), known as great compassion. Practice tolerance, meditate, use it as a tool to realize emptiness (of inherent nature).

Emptiness is not nothingness, emptiness is empty of inherent nature of things, be it a person or any thing. Emptiness can be explained from theory of interdependence, every thing arises out of certain causes and conditions, if the cause ceases to exist, the effect won't be seen anymore. If everything arises out of causes and conditions , it means everything is dependent, nothing exists of its own! That is what emptiness is all about, emptiness means empty of inherent nature of things and not nothingness. Emptiness can be supported with the great Middle way. Emptiness is not nothingness, nothingness being one of the extremes, and the other extreme is existence (or conventional existence). 
If we believe that every thing exist as it is, we are bound to get attached, we should look beyond (through the wisdom of emptiness). We are in living in such a world as of now. We are attached to people, we are attached to things. This is because you don't see the 'parts' differently, you just grasp the idea of a 'whole' that deceives you into thinking that, that 'whole' has a real existence in space and time. So  clinging to this extreme, we are suffering, we are attached, we are bonded.
     The other extreme, that is 'nothingness,' if you cling to this, (that emptiness is nothingness, nothing is real, nothing is really existing, ) then you are bound to go crazy(hehe or may be something not good).
If emptiness is not nothingness, what is it? Emptiness is the "womb of potential," because of emptiness everything is possible! everything ! Emptiness of emptiness (think) is also possible !
Because of emptiness you can liberate yourself from cyclic existence, from attachment, from ignorance, there is potential in you to become a Buddha yourself.

you, you are the only one!!


i shine but 
   only with the radiance of your benign love
i exist but 
   only in the world of your endearing memories
i live but
   in the dreams of our togetherness.

your heart is pure           (i know)
your love is gentle         ( i feel)
your heart is generous   (i see) 
your touch is heavenly. (i sense) 


the angels all around-
dare not take her away from me
for she is the reason i breathe 
i breathe in our memories, 
and all i breathe out is my love for her
i feed myself with her care
for people all around 
taste my blood 
that alone will testify
the depth of my words.

you are the one i loved
the one i will, 
the one i adore, 
you, you are the only one!!
