WISH FROM A FRIEND

ఈ పాత బడిన క్షణాలని కోయిల గొంతులో
కలకాలం మిగలనీ..
ఎప్పుడన్నా వెనక్కు తిరిగినప్పుడు
ఆ సంగీతాన్ని వెతుక్కుంటాను!!

పిలిచినా వెంటనే పుట్టిన రోజు నాజూకుగా
రావడం ముదావహం..
వెళ్ళిపో అన్నామని అలిగి మల్లి తిరిగి
రాకపోవడం గడిచిన కాలానికున్న అహం!!

గడచిన కాలాన్ని నెమరువేసుకుంటూ...
రాబోయే కాలమంతా నీవు సుఖ సంతోషాలతో వర్దిల్లాలని ఆశిస్తూ!!

Don't Postpone Happiness

Why is that we always fix a target for everything in life?
Why is that we fix a norm for every thing we do?
Why is that we always long for things which are not in our hands.
When we are young our parents plan for us and fix the terms!
And as we grow up we ourselves start fixing the terms!!

We fix a target for everything, rather anything we do
education , marriage, children, job, friends, relations…
And above all, for the life itself…..
“I am not going to be happy”…..unless it is going to be like this….
We make happiness conditional ….
Thereby life also conditional.

We seek happiness in life by achieving something
Rather than being ourselves,
Living our own life as it comes…accepting it as it is…
We forget that life has got both…..
Highs and lows…we forget that.. life is a wave!
We want to fix the boundaries..
We want to control the flow..

We try to decide when we want to be happy
We postpone enjoyment in everything we do……
Till it reaches a particular level….
We train our br…

LAUGH LIKE LIGHTNING-LAUGH LIKE THUNDER

Today some one compared my laughing with lightning and thunder
Just like lightning is followed by thunder
Laugh first reaches the eyes, followed by ears
Because, we all know…. that light travels faster than sound.

Its true… the other person will be first attracted to…
The glow brought in your face by the laugh,
Then listens to the melodious sound it carries ...

As I have observed many a times
A laugh rarely go unnoticed
Most of the times it has a reciprocation.
It always gives you something
Something more than just a laugh..

It gives you warmth!
It gets you affection!
Takes you high!
Makes you sigh…!!

What not…
Sometimes small things
Sometimes big things
Sometimes a laugh will give you everything…
Everything you want..

But more than all these things
It just struck me today that
There is something more special about laugh

When you laugh… before anyone receives it
You yourself will receive….
Receive in plenty….
Plenty of happiness before you make the other person happy
Plenty of …

Life is Now

Quite often we do that
But rarely do we realize…
We realize…. that we think a lot about
Either past or future and
Forget about the PRESENT!!

We go on think about things
Which we have done
Which are closed!
Which are sealed!
Permanently in the time frame!!
Which we can not change by any means..

But still we think
Think endlessly….
What would have been…
If it would have been
Etc etc…etc…..

Never we try to realize that……..
That thing… that action… was perfect for that moment
That thing and that action had a perfect past….
We keep on try to rebuild the building
In which we are already living…
And by doing so… we lose the happiness of living
Living in the present moment…….

Similarly we think about future…..

We go on plan for things….
Which we are going to do…
Which may or may not take place
Which are rather uncertain……
Which we can not decide right now……

But still we plan……
Plan untiringly………
It is going to be like that…
I am going to do that…
Etc…etc…etc..

We go on build castle i…

THOUGHTS

Why our thoughts are always categorized?
Why are they always either negatively or positively skewed?
Why we always put an emotional tag attached to them?

Love!
Sentiment!
Anger!
Happiness!
Distress!
Disgust!
Frustration!
Obligation!

It can be anything.
But never it comes without any thing…
Never it remains just as thought!!

We always try to make a simple thing into complicated one
Just by adding these tags…
We go on try to churn out some meaning from all these meaning less things!!

Why can’t we just allow the thought to flow..
Just like wind… just like water…
Going in any direction
Without any control…….

Why we always think that
We are either good thinkers or bad thinkers
Why can’t we just think……

Think without any limitation…
Think without any horizon…
Think without any prefix and suffix…
Why can’t we allow the thoughts to flow……

Just try it……
The thoughts will take you to heaven……
I promise!!!

How Can You Rule My Life?

Its my mind,
but.............
The thoughts are always yours!

Its my heart,
but.............
The feelings are always yours!

Its my life,
but.........
The moments are always yours!

Wherever I go, whatever I do
you are always there

Can you tell me dear
What right do you have,
To decide.... my life
Withou my concern....

Memory

Just I started thinking ………..

What is memory

What it takes to make a thing into memory
Whether its good or bad memory…….

The place…..
The time……
The person or
All put together?

If these things can make a memory
Why not all the things of our life turned into memories?
When we look back at things
Why only few remain with us?

When we meet the same person,
for the same amount of time, at the same place
Can it give same kind of memory?
I am sure certainly not…..

Today somehow I got to realize
Realize the truth….
The truth behind memory
What makes a thing into memory…….

It is the INVOLVEMENT
Yes involvement……
If we get ourselves involved with that
Particular moment
Particular place
Particular person
Then the ordinary thing will turn into memory
Otherwise not….
Absolutely not.

So. unless you have really involved yourself
whole heartedly in a particular thing
It can not turn into memory!

Start counting your memories………
