I have noticed that when all the lights are on, people tend to talk about what they are doing – Their outer lives. While sitting around in a candle light or firelight, people start talking about how they feel – Their inner lives. They speak subjectively, they argue less, there are long pauses. To sit alone without any electric light is curiously creative. Well, i have my best ideas, plans, surprises at the dawn or at nightfall with dim lights. But the moment lights are on throwing the “electric” brightness… I start thinking about my projects, exams, deadlines, demand, all those things that need to be done rather the background of thoughts.
How mysterious we humans are! We might be too much of “something” to someone and to other, we might not be enough. We all are a force of nature with extraordinary powers. Some might spend their whole life chasing someone while some might just close the doors and hide.
Let the best thing come to you. Let the best ideas spark your mind. Donot care what other will say and judge. There might always be people who are ready and waiting to judge every thing you do. But darling, remember that the value of an incredible painting is not decreased by those who cannot see it’s worth!
Ever happened to notice a small child playing? Trying to walk from a crawl? Smiling their magical, healing smile? I felt innocence through her.
I felt pure peace and joy, stopped wondering. Blank, seconds and seconds of contemplation. I could sink in her eyes, her looks, her gestures.
The Universe is in your bones and The Stars in your soul; it’s never really the end. Feel this ‘Peace‘ through this innocent soul. You’ll be drawn to your bubbling, peaceful days. ❤👑

How often do you stand in front of the mirror criticising yourself? Saying you are ugly or aren’t good with studies?
How often did bad days force you to say you are worthless?
How often did you badly wished to hug someone tight but couldn’t?
Here a thing to realise now. If you can’t find anyone when you badly need them…stand for yourself. Nurture yourself. Hug yourself.
I want you to imagine a “10 year old you” version sitting right opposite to you.
Now I want you to tell this little kid that s/he is absolutely nothing, embarrassing, worthless, useless.
Are you doing it? Can you say such things? Can’t right?
Now, realise that this is exactly what you do to yourself. What do you really want to say this kid? That the are worth everything, right? That s/he is incredible and they should never let others tell them anything otherwise.
Now say this new stuff to yourself.
Now, you are the adult of your life and if you’re not comforting this child within you, then that is very sad indeed.
Replace the bad with good. Believe it.
Decide not to feel worthless anymore.
Hug yourself. It is real easy. All you got to do is…take your right hand and put it on your left shoulder and then your left hand from below your right hand to your right side. Hold yourself tight and hug yourself! Rest your head on your upper hand and smile. I bet a million you’ll feel peace within.
Yes, this is how we express ourselves.
We express ourselves, the pain inside us, those unforgiving feelings…
by vigorously writing them down with ink onto paper that can only carry memories forever.
It is by writing our life events.
It is by writing lines with more meaning than a reader would ever feel.
Yes, sometimes writing down things brings more tears in our eyes than before.
The more pain goes into each word,
the more pain is sucked out of us.
We choose to express ourselves by writing our good notes and dark nights.
But we choose to do this because this is the only medication,
that can heal our pain and treasure memories.
Which in turn works better than any doctor’s prescription.
Goes unread many of our words because the crazy things we write doesn’t really happen?
There are around 7billion people across the globe and we believe that someone does exactly what we do, how we feel.
Certain it is that someone else has just stood in the shower as the boiling water ran down their body.
Cried about life because they don’t know what to do.
Yes, we use words to figure these feelings out when our mind starts battling with heart.
This is how we express us.
Let people be allowed to be themselves. People honestly do not want to waste any time blasting their mind off on unnecessary things. I am at peace. I have made my peace with the past, with this moment and how things are.
The wave of okayness comes from realising that people are allowed to be themselves.
We usually get set off by other people whether it be by their actions, what they say, do, believe, what they project onto us. People aren’t perfect, nor are we. We may say things which may too deliberately hurt one another to save our ego esteem and we still find comfort in setting boundaries and wall.
But then, it’s OKAY!
We are here to experience these lessons. I am here to learn, to be sent over the edge at times, to sling back whatever has been thrown onto me. We know that we are a direct reflection of someone’s own denied & slammed traits of themselves that one can’t accept. This is so very important truth to be known!
Emotional freedom comes when you have started accepting what has been on, what is and whatever may be. Accept people as they are. Forgive & Forget in order to make peace with yourself. ✌
“2get and 2give makes us lose peace. Double it, 4get and 4give, and you will get peace.”
