Giving That 100 %…

What a wonderful story with an equally strong moral !!!

A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her.

The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed.

The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised.

That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn’t sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.

Moral of the story: If you don’t give your hundred percent in a relationship, you’ll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent..

This is applicable for any relationship like love, employer-employee relationship, friendship etc. Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully…

Intriguing Face…

April 17, 2009

bI travel past the same road and see that young innocent face standing near the side walks in those narrow by lanes every other day. Her innocent face with some calmness intrigues me. She stands wearing a bright red or a yellow flowing skirt with an equally bright matching top. Her make up surely looks eloquent.

She stands quiet. Her body language is erect in order to attract invites. The stillness on her face is that of a motionless wave. People pass by her, and give her a good look from top to bottom. Some move on, while some stop to have that conversation with her. She at times gives her full attention to some, while with others, the nod away of her head is good enough to let someone know that she is not interested.

I would wonder, what would be her decision making points to accept someone as her client. Most of it, I would tend to understand would be the good money that she can get from them…but what’s on her mind at that time? What are her thoughts on just going ahead and sleeping with that random stranger?

What does she feel when it’s all over and done with and she has to go back standing on the street again to begin that same process all over? What about those feelings and emotions that have never been experienced? Is she even aware of them? Pure forms of love never experienced, nor even an amalgamation of a smile that would create it self when one experiences that joy of being in any relationship.

Those feelings never expressed nor reciprocated have created an individual whose heart has never experienced it beating along with the rushes of excitement. That feeling of being swept away, into the clouds; that unconditional commitment, a sense of being secure and safe never existed. She is still. The face immaculate with the deepest expression for her trade but none of them that was real.

Connections…

April 15, 2009

handsI would deem it fit, to say that a selected percentage of some of our soul would be spiritual. Spiritual entitles ‘connectivity’. A connection of sorts to the divine or any other person. Some people feel connected to “The Almighty”, while some to their own Human Gods, while some to their spouses, parents, friends etc.

How do you know that you are connected to XYZ? How do you know that there is some connectivity between you and the divine or the mortals? My answer to that will be your “Feelings”.

Wouldn’t feelings necessitate into your thoughts and signals your brain into messages which read to you that you are connected? You feel connected. Connections are healthy, be it connected to your divine soul or spirituality. It brings about a lot of mental peace and well being. It makes you feel healthy. Now, these surely are positive connections.

A debate about Negative connections would open up an entirely new chapter on what happens when those positive connections with people over a period of time translate into becoming negative. You feel negative yourself. Every other thought that crosses your mind is negative. It’s negativity not only about your relationship but also about the other person.

The series of finding faults and blames starts. Not to mention with lot of people, even the God Almighty is not spared at being blamed for all the wrong things that would happen in ones life. Being it, getting stuck at a signal while you are getting late or not getting that relationship which you ever wanted. For some it maybe the complaint as to still why I am not feeling connected?

Some connections just cannot be explained in words. A connection, which a mother would have for her children. A connection that a wife would have for her husband. That spiritual connection that some of us would have experienced while visiting our selected places of worship or just by sitting at home alone or that unspoken connection with your friends.

Amongst the other things, connections would have a say in some of the decisions you would make about your life. The connections leading to feelings somewhere will help you conclude a lot about your relationships and life. Connections a lot more can make your life stronger and healthier but incorrect ones can bring you down. Reading those connections with people and the divine would be an imperative part of the process of understanding your own self and feelings along with your relationships.

It’s all around us. It’s on us to accept the connections we share with those we love or just deny it all together.

Have You Ever Been In Love…?

April 12, 2009

Ahh Well…My answer to that is a NO!!!!

It’s Sunday Morning and this is my first song that I am listening to…and singing along the way..!

I just love the lyrics of this song. Especially the lines that I have bolded out below. They make so much sense to me…! These lines are just so right. Just so perfect to make this look like a perfect song!

“Have You Ever Been In Love”

In the morning light
Half awake and half asleep
Have you ever laid there thinking
Was it all a dream?
But you reach out and she’s there
Every moment, everywhere
Have you ever been in love?

Have you ever felt
How far a heart can fall
Have you ever stayed up waiting
For a telephone call
Just to hear her say hello
Cause you miss each other so
Have you ever been in love?

Have there been times to laugh
And times you really want to cry
Finding reasons to believe her
cause you’d die a little if she lied
And when in times of doubt
Have you ever tried to work it out
But still she leaves you wondering
What it’s all about

And when she’s far away
Have you ever felt the need to stray
And tried and then discovered
It just doesn’t pay
Cause with her, you can be true
And with her, you can be you
Have you ever been in love?

Have there been times to laugh
And times you really want to cry
Finding reasons to believe her
Cause you’d die a little if she lied
And when in times of doubt
Have you ever tried to work it out
But still she leaves you wondering
What its all about

And when the night comes down
Can you call your house a home
Do you dream you’re still together
And wake up alone
Have you ever been in love
The way that I’m in love
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever been in love?

Race With The Hour Glass…

April 11, 2009

image“There is a right time and place for everything” – LO Behold! The factor of “Time”

I bet many of us have had share of experiences with Time either playing a complete havoc in our life or being a complete healer and a savior.

Ever felt, that how with time your feelings for someone can change? That feeling that you must have had a couple of years back for someone may not be the same again. Either it would have grown three fold, or it would just have come spiraling down.

So basically, it’s on us to have that complete control over our relationships and not let time dictate things. Surely, there are instances where we would just sit back and say “let time take its own toll” or “let time decide” or “lets see what happens with time” only to exclaim later “I wish I had done something about it at that Time”?

I consider those people really lucky who have gotten favorable results by letting time decide – however sometimes you need to stand up and take control of your own life and relationships just so you don’t regret it later. Just so, that you haven’t let enough time pass by to do or say the right things. Just so, that you listened to your heart along with maintaining the right balance with your head as once that time is gone sometimes it takes away those words along with the opportunities to make things right. At times it makes it really difficult to go back to fix things.

My excellent experiences with time have not exceeded my race with it. Personally, as much as I am a little thankful for it; I hate the factor of time coming in my way. As much as I would not want it to take control of some things, I would not have had much choice as the opposite person may not see that way to partner with me to avoid it creating a ruckus in our lives.

Yes, a good balance is good enough – the worst is when it also makes you feel completely different about a person or a situation. It plays both ways. It can make you feel good or bad. I also do think, that at time we ourselves are exercising our choices to what and how we would want a particular situation to be – but if time is not on our side it will surely make you dance to its tunes.

The one thing that I would really find commendable in the game with time would be that it can actually bring about a lot of changes in you which more or often would be in your best interests if you are an optimist human being. Just when I had thought that I had one up against time, it did catch up with me on that point! This post was to be published two days back…Alas The Factor of Time!

Independent Candidate or Candidate With A National Party?

April 7, 2009

My Previous Post on Support and Vote for Meera Sanyal – Hope for Change In India garnered a very healthy debate on how people would see an independent Candidate versus a Candidate who is affiliated with a big, strong and a visible political party.

It will be very interesting to see what a vast section of people across all walks of life would think and prefer. I have activated the poll below. Go ahead and vote and I will publish the results after a week in my next posts.
