With inventions touching us everywhere we humans have centered our lives across materialistic attainment. We have made ourselves to believe that happiness quotient in life is directly proportional to monetary & material benefits. We crave for things as if its the only purpose we are here for. Our LIFE is not granted to splurge on material pleasures of this world. In fact they were only created to simplify matters in life & not conquer them.
Owing to the above traits I think there are two kinds of people in this world.
The Richly Rich & The Poorly Rich
Both have same means & resource to lead LIFE but still they are different due to their perception towards LIFE.
Richly Rich are those who find joy in the pettiest of things. They live every moment happily with positivity in their stride. Poorly Rich are those who will grudge & complaint for what they do not have & will fail to realize what they already possess.
Richly rich will always notice stars in darkness whereas Poorly Rich will cry for the dark.
Richly Rich : " I feel like making my mother feel special. Wow Diamonds will rock. But I cannot afford it right now.....Let's gift her a fancy watch"
Poorly Rich : " I feel like making my mother feel special. Wow Diamonds will rock. But I cannot afford it right now.....I never have enough money to fulfill all my plans....fine then I should wait for sometime later."
Got the difference .....its only perception. A same thing but two different ways to view it.
So what category you fall in? Richly Rich or Poorly Rich.
If its the latter then it's still time to mend ways & trudge on the road to glory.
But does this mean we should stop aiming for higher goals in life? In fact such an approach will hinder our growth. The answer is NO....we should not stop setting higher goals.
It's only that while we strive & continue to meet our higher desires we should not forget to halt each day & rejoice the existing ones.
This is the secret of happy living. Oops it's no more a secret. I have disclosed it.
Nevertheless we should all learn to be Richly Rich.
After all LIFE is too precious. Lets make it simple. Break the complexes & LIVE the today, RICHLY.
Hello all ... my lovely dear friends. I have so much to say to you all, but don’t know from where to start. I am sorry for this untold absenteeism from Blogger space. I have reasons & explanations but now that I am back lets not indulge in all that’s passé.
All that I want you all to know is that I missed you all tremendously. Even while I was not writing I did visited your blog space to read your posts
Anyways it’s a fresh start for me now & it’s a bit different.
In my previous stint with bloggers I learnt that I drifted because of my inability to catch up with you all via comments & replies.
So this time I am here with some changes. I love writing in my blog & reading yours.
I will continue to do so but I will not be keeping up with the comments & feedback thing. This means I will not have comment section in my posts I may not be posting comments over your lovely posts either But I would be surely reading them all.
Oops I know you will miss my expert comments but remember you will be under vigilance (Just kidding)
Nonetheless….we write what we feel & that’s what makes us happy the most!
So cheers to all & thanks for being a part of my world.
Lots of love,
My best wishes of the festival to you.
Have a Happy Holi...as colorful as gulal,
as joyous as spring, as spicy as golgappas,
as tasty as ghujias, as rocking as life.
So just drown in the spirit of the festival & Enjoy!
P.S I am going home for Holi. I will not be visiting my blog & will not be able to moderate comments either. Hence I have disabled them.
Oh for those who want to wish me.....well close your eyes & say your wishes. I bet it will reach me!
I am my own self & not what the world want to see.
I am not this body, instead I am the soul.
Beyond life is my destiny, behind stars is my joy.
Darkness cannot reach me as I fly to touch my ground.
My happiness is divine & my deeds humane.
As I stand at the verge, TODAY is waiting to embrace me.
The vigor know no bounds. I am ready to surge ahead.
Let me win what I failed to achieve, let me try what I forgot to achieve, let me start what I ignored to achieve.
Let me be me.
Shining with goodness & twinkling with mirth I stand & decide….
This is my vision & it will show me the light.
P.S this is what comes out from a person who is happy & brimming with hopes.
Hey just kidding.
LIFE for me is certainly NOT in the pink of everything. Its not that I want something …..its just that Life is in a blue(4 reasons unknown) . All in all I am stuck, so I felt why not try the “Reverse therapy“ (now don’t ask me what it technically means ….I felt it was appropriate for this situation, so I used it.) And thus I wrote this infectiously happy note to tell life…”Hey look I have colored your blues in pink”
(Now what does PINK stands for …hmm I may not be making sense in this post but lets say….. Pink here signifies happiness)
Our mind is sometimes in a state of that consistent comparison of what we have & what we want.
We always keep on building efforts & hopes for whatever we desire next.
But why does it happen that things we want strongly are also the ones that eludes us the most.
I am not saying this on the basis of any one past incident. Instead this is something that I have realized over the years & now I quite strongly believe into.
Just as the clear glistening dew drops disappear the moment we touch them…..Just as the colorful rainbow vanish the moment we blink……Just as the beautiful dream gets over the moment we wake up……So is the wish of the human heart. It keeps on eluding us until the last moment.
How many times has it happened to you that you were confident of attaining your goal but you ended up to find that you were just half way through & that there is still more to go.
Ask me and I would confess that I have experienced it every time I aimed for something.
Whenever I felt that it’s the completion of the journey & my goal lies on the next step I take, I found that there were yet miles to go. Oops life gets so tricky sometimes.
But then I do feel that this is the beauty of it. Just like the gold gets finer every time it’s purified on fire so does we. The more we work hard for a thing the more we become worthy of it. As the new Cadbury chocolate ad proudly asks “Have you earned it?”
Well then it’s good to get things the tough way. The more we toil the more precious it gets.
So when next time the going gets tough & then you achieve it in life do ask yourself…..have I earned it?
Hey and the answer, it surely got to be YES.
Amazing Grace...how sweet the sound.
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now I am found.
Was blind but now I see.
I don't remember the writer of this hymn but I do love & remember these words that I had learn when I was in the school choir.
At that time it was just a song which we mugged up hard only to win the singing competition. But now I do realize the sentiments BEHIND and BEYOND it.
There's so much depth & so much self realization in these words. Every iota of it is valid on me at this point of time. I was lost for sure....and I am fortunately saved now.
Life in the past few weeks has been quite mess & low to me. So much so that I actually doubted the things I believe in & the faith I live by. I was left in a dark stage where I questioned my own choices & decision.
Anyways now I am as good as ever & as confident as I am.
But I have here a question to ask.
*******What ray of hope keeps you going in the dark phase of your life?*******
[My answer: I feel it's my enthusiasm to dream of better days that help me come out of darker ones]
P.S Do find time to answer this question of mine. Heartfelt apologies to my blogger friends for my inability to respond on time to their posts.
There are some moments in life which are difficult to beat
& they just overpower us taking us back, down the memory lane
& leaving us reminiscent. How less do we get the time to cherish the priceless childhood memories? The treasured time which is now pass.
But whenever I think of it ….I feel a smile on my face & happiness in my heart. Remember those old gold days when…
We played in mud but didn’t catch any germs. “Ahh me & Reena used to prepare khana (food) with sand on our kitchen set”
Drank water from the garden tap & “safe drinking water” was a word unheard. “And in summers this water used to be so hot, yet it quenched our thirst”
The stolen guava from the neighbor’s house tasted the sweetest. “Aunty used to dread about we playing beside her house”
We had no play station & our kho kho team was left incomplete if any of the friends had a class test. “Yipee & our team mostly won”
Summer holidays meant whole day of play & we didn’t noticed our sun burns.
In school, the last period of the day felt like the longest. “We used to eagerly wait for bell to ring & run to the ice-cream vala outside”
It was a treat if someday mother gave a five rupee instead of lunch to have Bun-Tikki in the canteen. “We shared it & I used to get only a bite of it, but it was yummy”
We used to write in the best of our hand writing only to get a star in the class work copy. “And if Isha got 1 star more than me then…..ohh it didn’t make me cry but I did use to feel bad”
Mario was the only video game known. “I always lost to my brother”
It was a matter of pride to become the monitor of the class. “Oops I was made one….coz I was the talkative student around”
And remember how happy we used to be when teacher wrote those 4 words in our diary
Tomorrow is a holiday. “I tell you it was the best purpose for which a school diary was ever used”
Oh my memories are countless & I can keep on writing endlessly on this. Therefore I think I should end this spree herein.
But all you dear friends if you miss even an iota of those oldie Goldie days then don’t forget to say 3 CHEERS to it.
