Toxic

The year is about to end and a new year is knocking on our doorstep. Many of us have already jotted down “to do” and “not to do” list as new year resolution. Though till date I haven’t made any such to do list in any of the new years but this year I have decided to ask all my dear friends and also to myself to keep ourselves at a distance from “toxic” people around us. Now who are these “toxic” people you might be thinking , right?

Well, a toxic person is the one who seems very sweet and dear to you when they enter into your life but as time passes you realize they are too acidic in nature and are in the process of making you fragile from inside and at that point when you need them most, they will leave you alone and almost devastated.
Again, after years when you get back your smile and is virtually in the phase of getting over such person they again appears out of the blue in your life to ruin your life once more. If you allow such person to be part of your life once more, then it would be like digging your own grave.

So keep the coming year for yourself and for those few who really matter to your life. Say good bye to the year as well to those toxic people whose absence is much better than their presence.

Love, live and have fun. Wishing all my dear bloggers a very Happy Christmas and New Year.

Love and War

“Everything is fair in love and war”

We do know this phrase for ages. But is it really so? Do love and war go together? Love is all about creation, while war is all about destruction. Love is alacrity, while war is apathy. Love is music while war is cacophony.
History has shown us, wars are fought in the name of love, but, after the gory battle,is it possible to hold that love?
Love is beautiful but can it be beautiful when painted in pool of bloodstream?

Is everything is really fair in love? No I don’t think so. We cannot do anything and everything  in love or for love. But, we can try to do so.We can only try our best to nurture the love. Neither we can beg nor we can fight for love.

Love is a blessing which can be felt but not touched, which can be experienced but cannot be forced upon others.

It just happens. If it is meant to be, it will survive and if not it will vanish before one can realize.

Moonshine

As she closes her eyes comes the white light,
Takes her to hundreds of miles,
Where lives the moons and stars of her life.

She walks into the timeless space,
Music of love and life there plays,

And, everything she has ever wanted.

She started to dance in her golden gown,
Wearing her graceful queen crown,

In the soothing moonshine, holding her man’s arms.

Trickles then, the beam of sunlight,
Made her open the beautiful eyes,
She smiles and welcomes the morning mist.

Friends

“The one who has a good friend doesn’t need any mirror ” by Rumi

A few weeks back while looking for an article I got a photo album of my school trip to Digha (a beach in India). While looking through the pictures I remembered not only my school friends but also those friends who came into my life at some point in my life and left their footprints.

So this odyssey of my life was made with those few who had either made it easier or more dramatic in its rhythm. In this whole span of life from school days to university I have been part of the group of pals who were distinctively different from each other in their nature. Most of them were like winds who came with a soothing feeling but left before one could realise their presence. There were some who were like snows, they looked beautiful but were too cold to stay for a longer time.

While there were few who were like drops of rain who will prevent you to step outside and would always demand to cherish them only. But the real friends were those who were like scorching sunlight, who will bother you with their heat but would always show you the right path by showering their light on you and would never leave you in darkness. Lucky are those who have got even one such friend like the sun.

Expectation

“No expectations, No disappointments”

Often we do come across this quotation in our daily life and more or less we do agree with it at some point in our life.

Most of the times, it is said that we should not keep any expectations from the person we love. Love if pure has no expectation. But is it always so?

I do not think so. The expectation in a relationship is a must. Without expectations, a relationship would become static rather than dynamic. The expectation is nothing but a silver lining of hope.
It is mostly believed that we expect from whom we love, but in reality, deep down in our unconscious minds, we expect from a few whom we think loves us as well.

Don’t we expect from the Almighty that at the end of every crisis or struggle in life He would do everything best for us? I think such expectation from the Almighty gives hope for better days in times of hardship. I think realistic expectations won’t bring disappointment, whereas unrealistic expectations might.

Yes, it is true that expectations are mostly asked of others and that is where the chances of its failure remain. What we need to learn is to know the difference between a realistic and an unrealistic desire, rather than preventing ourselves from keeping expectations in a relationship. I also believe that, if we totally stop expecting from our loved ones in a relationship then all the ingredients of love, trust and hope would melt away in time.

Torment

Her thoughts come and go,

Her words still echo,

Her memories remain alive,

Which triggers the pain all the time,

 

He wishes to sleep all night

But her image comes in front of his eyes

Which keeps him awake whole night.

 

He dreams beautiful life in the silence of the night with his open eyes,

Where he spends the best moments of his life.

As the morning breaks the quietness of the night

He realises the reality of life.

 

He ends the long teary night with a weary mind

But begins the morning with smiley eyes.

Throbbing

“Relationships are more important than life, but it is important for those relationships to have life in them.” – Swami Vivekananda.

Sometimes it is difficult to express your emotion without tears while sometimes one can cry inside without shedding a drop. It depends on person to person and sometimes on their experiences from life. It is really painful when the person for whom you are fighting day and night blames you and find faults in you for small things. One might think his or her contribution in the name of sacrifice for the relationship is much more than the opposite partner thereby bringing ego for every little thing. Yes, it might be true that you are doing a bit more than your partner but did you ever take time to think his or her role in it.

Maybe you cannot see that because your ego comes before your thoughts. Even if you know and wants to accept his or her contribution your ego would stop you from doing so. One cannot live his or her life when one of the partners showing doubts on the other partner whom he or she is claiming to be in love with all the good times. Love is not about being together all your life, rather it is about being happy to be with each other.

“I Love You” is easy to spell out and pronounce hundred times a day. But the difficulty is holding the true essence of its meaning in your life and relationship.
