Happiness is a journey.

I read this line in a book, that happiness is a journey. Many of you might have read the book yourself, The monk who sold his Ferrari. It’s a very informative book for anyone who is interested in transforming their life. That book contains many ideas that I have incorporated into my life. One such idea is that happiness is a journey.

I am a very insecure person. I am constantly worried about my looks, about my life, about my relationships, and now about my work as well. That’s why learning that happiness is a journey has made me feel so much better about everything.

Sometimes during the day, when I am upstairs sitting on an old and broken desk, listening to the slow cawing of a nearby crow, I wonder to myself, what is going on. Sometimes when my phone bill is due and my works don’t come through, I wonder if life is never going to change. But I know that it will. Through hard work anything is possible. Life is never the same. No two moments ever appear the same. That is why time is precious. No matter how slow life seems i am constantly moving forward.

It took me years of failure to finally understand the weird workings of my mind. It is only in patience that one can understand one’s own emotions. Your mind talks to you in various ways. Through the lyrics of a song, through a feeling that arises from the random thoughts of a friend. From a cup of coffee you sipped watching the beach. Life always gives us an opportunity to understand ourself. Life wants us to see what is wrong. Life wants us to notice what we are going through.

Because my job is to make myself happy. To take the right decision. To drive. Every now and then you might feel lost. You might hopeless or ridiculous, there are so many emotions that runs through one’s mind . It is only in patience that you can understand them all.

It helps to stay patient, to take happy breaks, to spend more time with nature, to listen to your heart. To take breaths of joy. Yoga heals. To me, I am fascinated by light and colour, even the greys at night look fabulous to me. I like the sound of my mango tree when violent winds pass through it.

But eventually they all make sense. You face your fears, confusions, problems. You learn to build strength within you to conquer your dreams, your desires. When we do our duty god creates circumstances and opportunities in favour for us, because god loves us. God is an amazing entity.

Sometimes we keep our happiness in the wrong place. Happiness is like a special diamond that is kept inside a box. When you open the box and take the diamond out there is a beautiful glow that shines through it. But sometimes you keep the key to that box in the wrong places. If you leave the key to this special box inside someone else’s heart, its most likely that you are in trouble forever.

So where else can you keep It? If I keep it in money, then once again I will be caught in the vicious circle. I will lose my happiness for the wrong reason and gain it for the wrong reason as well. So the question still remains? Where can I keep the key to my happiness? Peace is an extraordinary feeling. Peace connects me to my soul. Peace may be I should learn to become happy with peace. So I will never have to lose my happiness again.


Time flies

It was only yesterday I had stepped foot into my 12th std. Everyone said it was the riskiest phase of school life. I always wondered what they meant when they said “school life”. Was it the life I was living in school? I thought if that was what it was, I was going to be epic.

But I turned not anywhere even close to that. I was one of those kids with exactly 10% of concentration power. I was a very weak kid in studies. If I had the ability to understand as I do today, I would have been great at studies. I wasn’t.

I never realized what I did in life. I never knew what to do. There was only one thing i always stood for. I stood for which i believed was good. I believe in good. I desire good. Good is the word I’d choose if someone asked me what I want to do for the rest of my life. I’d choose good over everything. So I’d definitely choose good over bad. Even if, it were me I was choosing over.

Sometimes I think life is running as fast as it could perhaps always leaving me behind. And I’d run with it, as fast as I could but its amazingly strange how much more faster this life actually is.

Sometimes I feel afraid that I am only me. Small and mediocre. But I think god has blessed me with everything I desire. God has also taken away the people who don’t belong in my life. I think it is because god has a plan that is better than mine. And I always love his plan more than my own. Because gods plan makes it magical for me.

As the mystery unfolds everyday I begin to know more and more about it. With each day I feel the world is changing and transforming into the most beautiful thing I had ever seen or perhaps the most beautiful thing I can ever see.


Why you shouldn’t fall in love with your friends.

Because life is your individual journey. It is something that you own for yourself. It is something from which you learn, understand and transform. In life, you cannot try to own the people you like.

Having friends is a lot like having material things in life. Its beautiful, it will give you happiness when its there. It will give you sadness when its broken and the memories will remain no matter what. But unlike material things people are not something that you can own. People are just people, individual and unique. Just as much as wanting to own other people is silly, it is silly to want to be owned by them. Your friends don’t define who you are, you do. Or in this case, I do. 👍

In my life I have had many friends but I have fallen in love with the best, and it has gotten me to the cliff. The cliff from which I can fall and die or enjoy the view. It takes a great deal to learn to clear your mind regularly but it is a fantastic feeling when you do so. Yes, like all good things, this journey has been great too.

Anyway, Friendship is one of the greatest relationships one can have. Because it is a thing of the present, its a thing of happiness and above all You don’t have to spend a great deal of time and love to create it, it just happens. You might not like everyone you meet. But some will be amazing. My advice is simple, do not fall in love with those particular amazing people you meet.

When I sit back and think to myself why I don’t have much friends in life I realize that its because i have fallen in love with the best, and then, destroyed that relationship. Its like someone gave me the most fragile flower and I behaved like i didn’t know what to do with it. I behaved like a monkey. Instead of nurturing it and giving it water, I ate it just to see what it tasted like. You have no idea how many relationships I have destroyed in the past.. Which is why I think i should never fall in love with friends.

Every relationship is unique. If you like someone a lot more than normal, then instead of falling in love, you should respect them and if you truly deserve it, that respect would be returned.

Having a respectful relationship is so much better than slapping each other, fighting or beating someone who used to be the best thing you know.
