As I was sitting in my terrace looking over at the dark sky, deeply lost in thoughts the sun started to shimmer up the horizon. The cool breeze was chilling and seeping through my flannel. I started to wonder about how I had come to be in that perfect moment where everything made sense. I thought about how fortunate I was. I had this amazing gift bestowed upon me where I could just sit by myself and think about the gloomy world around me. At that moment, I just wanted to reach out and apprise to the world of what they were missing out on. When you are deeply lost in thought, the things around you start to come together. Suddenly this eccentric world with all of its bizarre anomalies starts to make sense. You can suddenly see the world for what it actually is.

A surfer hunts for that perfect wave and fancies that moment when he conquers that perfect wave. I hunt for the same in that perfect moment where all of my thoughts and my perceptions start to make sense to my aberrant mind. For thinking is to the mind an everlasting dose of reality. Even though your mind fantasizes about all of your deep fantasies but still does not lose touch with reality. You see the human mind? It’s a very anomalous creation of God. No one has and no one ever will be able to conquer this little yet so stupendous organ of our mortal body.

Then comes along the topic of soul. To me, thoughts are what keep a soul alive. Like Marianne Wilson once said “The soul is the truth of who we are”. Just like our souls, our thoughts define our very own existence. I always say that our soul is beautiful. It’s the radiance of our soul which keeps us going through thick and thin. And the only way to achieve that inner radiance, that inner light is to be alone by yourself and just think. Feed your soul as you feed this mortal body of yours.

Think positive for there is nothing more harmful than a negative thought. Think about yourself, the relations you have with other mortal beings. Think about life and death for death is something that cannot be denied. Think about love for it drives you and gets you through your day no matter how miserable it might be. Think about all those moments you spent in ignorance of yourself and your surroundings.

Redefining our dreams.

“I need some career advice. Can you guide me?”
The words of a bloke I used to know back in college.

I was astonished that this person came to me for career advice. Like I was something. I could not deny him coldly now, could I? It’s strange what other people think of you. The thoughts you never defined for yourself. Anyways, I went ahead with it.

The first thing I asked him “What do you want out of your life?”
“Money”, he replied.

I got to thinking, like I always do. My mind was racing a mile a minute. I could not comprehend that all a person could want out of his life was wealth. Of course having some substantial amount in your bank account doesn’t hurt. But still, Money can not be the sole purpose of your life, could it?  I once expressed to a fellow that I wanted to become a motivational speaker. Guess what he said? “If you become famous, people would pay you large amounts of money to speak at public gatherings”. I expressed my dream, that’s what I did. I want to become a motivational speaker not to earn money but to influence others. I want to get into the minds of people. I want to tell people to get up from their slumbers and do, just DO. Do what they dreamed, do what they want, do what they fantasize. I want to tell them about my mistakes. I want to tell them that they can. They can achieve whatever they want out of their lives, that their dreams can be materialized. This was the passion, the fire inside me that drove me to write this blog. To influence others in a positive way.

Work for your dreams people. Trust me, you can. Start out at a small level but at least start. Define your strengths, your weaknesses, your goals and your visions. Start today. Make a list of the things you want to accomplish. Break them down into sub categories. Start ticking them off one by one after accomplishing each one.

A person once said “People don’t fail because they aim high and miss, they fail because they aim too low and hit”

Stay safe people. Good day.
