I don't understand!

There is loneliness, and no one wants to die alone.
People get married.
Even after marriage they feel the loneliness.
Happiness means 'to be happy even if you are alone'
And once you have learnt that, why would you want to marry?

If a relationship works out, you live together.
If it doesn't, you marry someone else, and fall in love with that someone.
What is love? I don't understand.
What is life? I don't understand.


There is so much chaos outside

Double the noise inside

People laughing, crying, scolding, complaining.

Lots of noise everywhere.

Why am I here?

What am I looking for?

Why am I not at peace?

What is stopping me?

I want to dissolve this mind.

Experience the freshness of every moment.

There is pain, there is misery, there is disappointment - Lots of it.

I don't want to live in ignorance anymore.

I don't want a workaround now.

For once and for all, I want to dissolve this mind - I want to be at peace.

I want to be the moment.

YES, I want to be the moment!


Different people.. different paths.. Same destination

So many different types of people in this world. Though the destination for each one is the same (doesn't matter if they realise it now or in some next lifetime), the paths that takes them towards that destination are many!

Some path might be shorter, some might be longer.. some might be a short-cut, some might be a long-cut - But the goal of all these paths is to make you reach the same destination.

So what is important? Two things.

1) No matter what path you choose, just keep walking ahead. Don't go crazy on which path is a short-cut.. Choose any path that you like, that suits you. Don't like a path? Change it! Take a new path that gives you a happy journey. There is no time up, there is no deadline. Some day we all are going to reach the destination. Sooner or later, the journey will come to an end. Just ensure that its a happy journey, you have really enjoyed the travelling!

2) Let people walk their own path. There is no 1 path, and there is no right path. Just because we are walking on a particular path, it need not be the only path. There is no best path, there is no right path. Guide people if they are not sure, but don't impose on them. And when they choose their path, let them walk on it, irrespective if its not the same path that you have chosen. Interesting thing is, no matter how much you may guide someone in choosing a path, their inner voice will tell them which is the right path for them.

Also, The beauty of life is when a person gets lost, he/she returns and finds a way out - A new path. Nature does it for each and everyone.

Only a spiritual person will say that 'I don't know everything. There are infinite possibilities for everything. And that the supreme power is taking care of everyone!'

Love me just because you love me!

Love me not because you can get something from me,

Love me not because I can fulfill your expectations,

Love me not because you see something great in me,

Love me not because I make you happy,

Love me not because I listen to you,

Love me not because you enjoy my company,

Here I am... a common person... with nothing to give you, nothing to fulfill, nothing great about me, nothing to make you happy.

Will you still love me?

Love me not for any other reason. No reason is good enough.

If you love me... Love me just because you love me... Love me just because you love me..

Love me just because you love me!!

Don't hold on to your mind; it will fool you

This is a confusing, disappointing, a miserable place to live in, if you hold on to things that keep changing. 
The only way to maintain your sanity is to hold on to things that are unchanging. 
So, what is unchanging? How shall we determine the difference between changing and unchanging? 

Ask yourself this question: What is that which is always there, which still is, and which will be there forever? Space - God - Self - Guru - Love. 

There is absolutely no difference between all these. These are just different names of the same energy. If you wish to maintain your sanity, hold on to these!

Now, what is that which is changing?
Anything that is related to mind, intellect, memory, thoughts, words, ego, body, are all subject to change. Broadly speaking, all these are mind games; none of these is true. 

Let's start with expectations. You expect something from someone, and you don't expect certain things from someone. And when the person doesn't pass your expectations, you are disappointed. But before holding on to expectations, have you wondered, what it is?

Expectations is nothing but a set of concepts made by your mind. But life is not about concepts; it's all about living NOW! Concepts are nothing but complications created by the mind. Things should be in a particular way, is what concept/expectation is all about. But the mind in the first place is illusionary, it keeps changing! And expectations are created by the mind. Hold on to the mind and its illusionary creations, and you will be fooled, dissapointed and miserable.

What is past?
Mind signals the intellect to recover whatever has been stored in the memory. So, if the memory is removed, does the past exist? The present is ever present, irrespective if the memory remains or not. But the past is non-existent. Holding on to past (which is again a mind game), will only bring misery.

What is future? Mind projects an illusionary situation (most of the time a negative situation), and makes you believe that this is how things are likely to happen. But we tend to forget that the very law of nature is 'change'. Holding on to the future is of no use.

Thoughts, feelings, words and behavious
Every moment your thoughts change; you feel different. Thoughts and feelings are subject to change, so often. You like someone/something and the very next moment you feel different about that one/thing. Someone said something, holding onto those words is nothing but dwelling on the past. The person has already said it, its over! It's only your memory that keeps reminding you that something like this has happened. What is the use of holding onto thoughts, feelings, words or behaviour?

Body and Ego
This body is going to dissolve. Holding on to one's looks/physical presence is foolish.
Again, Ego is nothing but an illusionary separation. Anything that restricts you from connecting with others, anything that doesn't allow you to be your natural self (peace, love), that is ego. When you get back to your self, you realize that ego never existed. Body and ego - both are subject to change.

Hold on to your self, hold on to God, Hold on to the love - Hold on to these unchanging and you will never be fooled, you will never be disappointed. Hold on to your mind, and you will be fooled.

The choice is yours!
