Give vent to Your Feelings

What do you feel when you see a soldier? Sense of security and pride. If you notice your teacher shopping in market, you first reaction as teenager would be to change the route and if he/she shows up, then greet respectfully. These are general profiles. What are general impression you have about people around when you do not know anything about them? A bespectacled girl seems intelligent and geeky. You feel need to help elderly or blind person cross street because they seem vulnerable.

Every field has an associated attitude. You cannot find a person not patriotic being an army man for long, if he gets selected somehow. Similarly, an insensitive person cannot be a social worker. These feelings are thus, important part of our life. They make us, define us.

This topic came up because nowadays, people are seeking holistic approaches such as meditation, out-of-box jobs, vacations to get rid of tension (mental and physical both). They are actually running away from the world. I do not say that gurus, especially spiritual gurus are being impractical but true guru will help you stay in the world, help fight corruption and inefficiency, impart training to inspire, stay motivated, and solve problems.

These gurus appear very balanced due to their simple yet powerful thinking. These usually happen due to being in connection with holistic world, holistic teachings, and oneself. There is strange aura about them when you see them and you think for a while to be like them. This is characteristic of their personality and cannot be of everyone else.

Being in materialistic world, it is important to feel happy, sad, angry, disgusted, fearsome, etc. You cannot exist a day without your feelings unless otherwise you are a monk. A child is taught about fire, electricity, water, wind, insects and other hazards sometimes by making them feel little pain or putting an example before them and acting like crying or showing being sick. Your body responds to hazards only because you know they are dangerous to you.

If you are scared that being tense about a problem gives you health problems then the solution is not turning back from the world. Face it. There are many ways to solve problems. First and most basic is by talking and sharing your problem with others and especially to those around the same situation. If it is richness or inundated fame that is making your back off, then indulge in some social work. 

Seek help from medical counselors to get out of situation but stop feeling negative about life. Religious places provide detox from life misery and refresh a person to accept it with more energy and faith. It is good to go there once a while but stop moaning every once in a while when challenges surface.

Practice some discipline and understanding towards life and you will see you can handle infamous remarks on your work and other incidents. Things cannot go far because even the professional environment has ethics that resemble with human virtues. Feel your best and give others a reason to smile. You might even feel light in your heart listening to complaining boss when you know certainly that you can solve the matter within reasonable time frame.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Has Always Been

First Published on Poem Hunter

Once wide open
does seems the world is
riding on breeze
for a moment of thought

my pen is pouring
celebration of life, an afterthought
in own musing of ideas
where a tear is no longer a fear
nothing devises as found in

eternal or has always been.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
