Calling into the Universe !

Through the ambages of Life’s great maze,

I am in need of new words

the ones i know and have known for years, resonate no more..

I am in need of some clinical thinking

the nebulous ones only smother the light in me..

I am in need of constant new learnings..

the ones i have learnt over the years do not make me feel empowered..

I am in need of a growing Love..

the ones i have had were mere reflection of it..

I am on a desperate calling into the Universe, and everything amassing it..

I am done being an asteroid..,

I am done being a fickle meteorite..!

For I am seeking an enormous life in my being,

And I am ready for the fall after the great subsequent growth..!

Through the ambages of Life’s great maze,

I am calling into the Universe..!

I am calling into the Universe…!!

The Great Work!

 

They say your life is your masterpiece.

What if our reality is steadily becoming our dream?

They say Life is a succession of Battles.

What if the reality is only battles, devoid of successions?

They say We are stars wrapped in skins.

But why our skins take eternity to dazzle?!

 

May be cuz’ , we are always a great work in progress and the objectivity of The Great Work is to create, and one cannot create unless one destroys the old.

So Dear Heart, Mind and spirit, keep working, keep The Great work steady cuz’  Patience Is Genius!  🙂

P.s. Wearing my Muse-on socks 🙂 #Contemplating Life.


 

Stay Safe, Stay Spirited. #Always.

Rescue Humanity With Love❣️

 

And meanwhile,

See the plants, the birds, the ants, the spiders and the bees, all going about their individual task – everyday and thus keeping the world in order, as best as they can !

Can not we as humans put a bit of ourselves to Spread love.., And in the course Nurture Humanity.. ?!

We can! Right?! 🙃

Image Perspective: How about we see it as our integrity, commitment, the chances we take towards the great works of our lives?!

Whisper..

Ever felt drowning in the pain of waiting ?! Waiting for your soul to dance in the echo of enigmatic – eternal bliss?!

A pain so deep into your conscience, massively erect and poking fun out of your existence, like a rainbow of clowns hanging upside down, vehemently smiling at you?!

In case it does occur to you, bother not !

Just vehemently smile and wink back and swiftly Whisper …,

“I am a superhero – my emotions empower me unfettered” 🙂

The pain, the waiting might not bubble out instantly, but those clowns would definitely fade in the stellar clouds of confetti and glitters of the spirited mind, the spirited soul. ✨ 🙂

Whisper your strengths.. ✨✨

PS. It’s been more than an year now, i started writing here, something i initiated to explore my own web and castles of thoughts, something i initiated to expand my realms of understanding and express the vastness i feel and observe in life’s every day’s struggle, learning, bliss, wisdom and failures, and to be true, this journey of exploration and expression worked out amazingly constructive for me – I have grown stronger in my thoughts, my visions and my ability to perceive and express things with clarity and wisdom, which i clearly had hard times expressing them before this blog.

I remember, i did struggle initially writing in here, as for me personally, it was always one thing to think and just another big deal to pen down something with the same vigor and strength as it generated in my mind.

In-fact, i still stumble. And i guess that’s okay.. 🙂

It’s okay to be surrounded by so much and feel the vacuum inside. If not me, who else will feel the heat inside-outside of me?! Same goes for you ! I guess.

What’s really important is to have the courage and urge to pour out every drop of sanity, to bleed our constructive thoughts into affirmative actions. And i believe that’s the way to push our limits, to test our understanding and to sharpen our belief only to strengthen our core and the outcomes.

So, when you feel drowned in waiting and it’s sufferings, don’t give up, don’t surrender – take a moment, breathe and collect all of you and surge ahead..

When we own our failures,all those shortcomings we never accounted, we become a better person”

And when we “whisper our strengths and strive to work harder to defeat the demons in our path, we win.” “WE WIN BIG !! ”

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.

Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” 🙂

It’s not a philosophy, it’s not a shortcut mantra, but it does add a spark in our willed heart to fight life’s umpteen battles.

Hope it did ignite your enthusiasm. 🙂

Stay Safe, Stay motivated..!! Keep exploring and never stop evolving in your own vastness..!! 🙃

Until next time,

Naman Prakash 🙏.


Being A Man!

Dedicated to the man who struggles within and yet realizes, learns and tries to be a better version of himself.

Every single day.

Being A Man!

Any idea what does the heading suggest?

We already have many. Isn’t it?

It’s about Men. And Men will be Men. Right?!

No. It’s not right. There is a problem.

We already have a generalized ‘estimation’ about a man.

And with this social environment, being a Man is tough. Nothing ordinary.

Almost every man has to face this already generalized estimation of himself before anyone could actually know him – Doesn’t matter if that particular individual man is bad or actually good.

Can you feel the strain?

This is not true in case of a Woman though! But this piece is neither about a Man Vs a Woman nor about putting a notion, that being a woman is otherwise easy. No. It’s not!

Yeah, being a woman is certainly beautiful. And this could be accepted in all it’s universality if we take the whole womanhood in consideration. Right ?!

But being a man is a struggle. Any given day.

And the architect of this struggle has been mostly the men themselves.

They have been busy designing and bringing down each other,since ages – crafting and inculcating rigid ideas of how and what a man must be made of.

So A man of modern era has a huge battle to fight and conquer for himself.

A man may conquer a million men in a battle

but one who conquers himself is, indeed, the

greatest of conquerors.

Buddha.

Only if, conquering ‘oneself’ was easy!

Apparently, it’s not and requires a lot of grit to get even started.

Though, conquering a battle still seems relatively easier.

Being a man myself, i remember, i grew up witnessing all the societal and it’s bumbled idea of a man – the hollow perspective like in what ways a man must always act manly, a man must not be vulnerable; he has to act stoic and never let his guard down! Etc. These ideas are still prevalent.

Over the time, these rigid fundamental themes, i believe have done more harm than any good to the men in general in how they shape up, how they interact with fellow men and women, mentally and emotionally or without it.

Through time in ages, i started learning and understanding my own emotional,physical and biological responses in sync with the fickle yet evolving mind, and to be honest, initially that whole experience did flyby into some utopian world, and had all been fun but crazy.

Those were the time of relentless boyhood.

Transitioning into a Man, steadily, was and is still altogether an uphill task. I would say, it has been a challenging build of self into a man.

The boy in me steadily started harnessing consciousness out of my conscience.

The boy in me, growing around nefarious mindset,unkempt knowledge – steadily started acknowledging the growing consciousness in me; reasoning the prevailing beliefs,paying attention to the mind and feeling through the core of my heart.

Though, I did struggle. I still do. ‘Cuz may be i’m on a conquest to conquer my own rhythm of the heart and mind.

“Something Everyone should yearn for..!”

In the process, i learned, Becoming a real man is a constant struggle.

Get’s tougher, when your heart echoes it’s worth.

I acknowledged, Being a man becomes challenging when the heart syncs with your mind and takes your conscience for a swift ride, rebelling against the general notion of being a man..,

Notions like,

” Men will be Men (Aka Boys will be Boys) “

This particular phrase carries myriad interpretations, but mostly carrying the high toned pseudo masculinity; suggesting and steadily enforcing an idea that it’s okay to allow men/boys with their mistakes and their toxic understanding about themselves and everything else.

This notion had been problematic, in it’s manifestation and subsequently in it’s promotion. For the men and the women equally! And in general how we have grown as a society across geographies!

So Men and Women in general, And we the men specifically, are required to be sensitive around how we perceive and grow with certain ideas.

” All men are terrible and heartless creatures. They don’t feel any pain, they don’t feel broken-hearted or miserable. “

“All men!” You see the basic problem here? Generalization.

Not All men. Some men are terrible.

World would not have grown much if all men and women were same.

And yes, men do feel pain, miserable and heartbroken as much as and sometimes more than their contemporary women.

“A man doesn’t go through sexual assaults. He does not live through betrayals as much as women do.”

This is a myth that needs to be addressed more actively.

Though historically men have used sexual violence to subjugate women and is still prevalent but sexual assault can happen to anyone, irrespective of the gender. Though men in general have to go through some real challenges because of the general social attitude and stereotypes around them and their masculinity.

Betrayals doesn’t happen by evaluating genders. Period.

” A man thinks only through his other Head – the other head being his dick”

You think you know all of them? That would be weird if you do!

“One should not categorize the whole kind” It’s not fair.

A man can be as receptive, sensible and passionate as the other human gender.

“A man has to remain tough, push his feelings aside, in order to stay manly”

“No”.

No Man should do that.

Dear Men, you don’t live on an Island all by yourself.

A real man stays manly enough when he gets vulnerable and yet he has an empathetic heart and remains truly strong in his character.

“All men are dogs”

“Really?!” Where did this even come from?!

This generalization and labeling is fundamentally all so wrong on so many levels. Dear women, please refrain doing this.

Being a man is tough.

Especially, when you’re a man with an active brain, a conscious mind, an empathetic heart.

It get’s tougher when your heart learns to express through all sorts of it’s human experiences, syncs with the rhythm of brain and dances to the feel of life’s all brutality and chaos.

Yes, Being a man is tough when he feels deeply, expresses himself with confidence and fervor and stays benevolent enough to respect and remain available to the myriad struggles of his own loved ones – Men or Women.

Being a man is tough when he’s conscious of his flaws and failings.

Being a man is tough when he’s scared of his insecurities.

Being a man is tough when he acknowledges his weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

Tougher when he endures all the pain yet courageously, puts all the faith and commitments for the life ahead.

Being a real man is tough.. Any given day.

Being a man – Being a Real Man – It’s a struggle. It’s a Journey.

All a real man needs is another compassionate heart to embrace him.

Meanwhile,

Dear women,

All heart and rooting to the feminist movement. But there is a surge in reverse sexism too.

Please don’t become those men,world is still wailing from!

At the end, a huge shout out to all the Men who think and act through the conscious melody of their heart and mind.

A huge shout out to all the women who hold on and walk side by side of these men. We Are, Because You Are there for us. And we should stand for each other, for a better world, better society.

“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be.

Be one.”

-Marcus Aurelius.

If you feel like, you can read my musings on ” Woman- A Full Circle”.

Link. Woman- A Full Circle

Feel free to connect and comment. 🙂

Woman- A Full Circle

Dear Reader(s),
First of all a huge smile for all the women reading this. A smile filled with great reverence and admiration…!! Cheers to all of you spirited souls..!! 🙂

A Great and Happy woman’s Day – “Today” and for the next three hundred and sixty five days – year after year ! 🙂

Though, to be honest, i wonder, why a separate woman’s day?! Why , when in reality it’s been always far stretched a-concept without concrete shift in ideology, mindset and ground-work to bring some affirmative change ?!
No! Not at all i am trying to throw some cliches here. Deep down you too know, it’s just another day in thick skulls out there. Don’t you?!
Metaphorically, We always have associated women with the Nature as in by addressing the Earth as “Mother Earth” ! True by intentions, it stays metaphorically only!

An Analogy worth mentioning…,

International Woman’s day & International Earth Day!

What’s the correlation ?!

We just Exploit both of them! Without mercy, without being considerate. Without transcending the reverence they always have deserved.

My theme of deliberation here is to interrelate Woman and Earth! Think Think !!
Okay, some might call it over emphasizing or some might say what’s the connection, they both need separate addressing! True, that is the whole point of interrelating both.
If i am sane, i think woman and our precious planet, the earth, have intrinsically and fundamentally almost same characteristics..

How so ?!

“A Woman and The Earth is a full circle

within them, there is power to create

ability to nurture and eternal will to transform..”

– What say?! Does any one differ?! 🙂

And if i am not insane, i would ask you, ‘Don’t they have the power to destroy too?!’

“We all know the wrath of a Woman & The earth” ! “Smile”

I think they should merge The Earth day and Woman’s day, or celebrate both of them twice! Would that bring some change or impact?! ……?!

I personally think that could be an effective initiative to educate the young minds, effectively inculcating and nourishing the growing mindset, with positive and informative curriculum.

What do you think?!

But it’s not about the day and it’s celebration only.

It’s about how we are growing intuitively and transforming socially with this! Are We?!

Beyond Science and the theory of evolution – Beyond the bare bone understanding of the social fabrications of civilizations and it’s thousands misogynist succession: Let’s make an interpretation and allow me to ask you..,

Do You believe in God, and the divine creations?! Do You love and revere(fear) the almighty?! 🙂


Now, if you do, then how about a hypothesis that woman is actually the ‘divine’ architecture of The God, The Universe itself ?!
I mean, for all the believers, it could be put this way, that The God, that enigmatic something might have thought someday, in the initial phase of complex worldly creation, “I could not be everywhere physically at the same time, so lets create someone who can create, nurture and transform – Someone neither inferior nor superior to men, but far more capable and expansive than men.., someone, like A Woman” .
That could be a perspective, right?? To bring depth into the purpose of celebrating this particular day and honoring the being of this Vital Force ,”Woman” ?? Couldn’t it be ?! 🙂

Dear Men, don’t thump your chest, you can not beat this one. (LOL)
Do you find any other vital force as vast and infinite as a woman?? Please enlighten if you do. 🙂

Well, in all this, my point is simple, either one follows any established or non-established interpretations, Woman and her being certainly needs a broader acknowledgement, not just to revere her in flesh and bones only, but to realize hers far greater participation too!
Woman’s day is not just a dedicated day to celebrate “The woman” and her being, in all shapes and shades – But it’s also a day to remind, we as a society, are still struggling to acknowledge the true spirit of celebrating this day!

We don’t need ‘Woman’s Day’ only to pretend the pseudo power and significance of Womanhood just for this day alone.

This needs acceptance, rather than pretension.

Woman’s Day Everyday ..!

Few might foolishly ask what’s Her role throughout the civilizations?! Well..,

Rome was not built in a day. We all know that!

But it was certainly not built without the influence & wisdom of women in political and financial affairs – despite being unable to vote!

Men are still not tired of subverting the role of Women!

Hypocrisy in celebrating only this day?! Yes!!

“Red stains on her attire grasps everybody’s attention, while,

Red stains on the wall of Temple does not!”

– Carrying a Lifeless mind?!

Is she treated equally?! Not a day!

“A rapist, a pervert, a molester, a murderer – Everybody is allowed inside a temple.

Except a woman on her PERIOD.

Her body is biologically equipped to naturally cleanse itself ! Yet she suffers Inequality of lifetime right?!

What’s the point of all this?!

She’s a “Wo-man” ?? That’s it ?!

NO! She’s not just a prefix in a man’s history.., she is always the more!

Well none of the quotes, stories, or articles can bring the real purpose of celebrating this day, unless and until, men start invigorating and understanding, what a universe a woman is in herself, and realizing, she equally deserves all the goodness and the grandeur men cherishes for themselves.
And off course – A woman to woman exchange-share of mutual respect, admiration and empathy would also help massively in the way, we as a civilization treat woman all across the globe.
Nonetheless, A Happy Woman’s day… to each and every one of you.., this day and everyday! 🙂

You are Indeed a Superhero… 🙂

Stay Strong, Stay Invincible ✨✨

Rescue Humanity With Love..! You can. You Always have. 🙂

Warm Regards.. 🙏 🙂

War and Truth

‘The first casualty of war is Truth’

Aeschylus,Greek Dramatist, Fifth century BC.

The first casualty when war comes is Truth’

U.S senator Hiram Johnson 1917. World war I.

‘In wartime, truth is so precious that she should be attended by a bodyguard of lies’

Winston Churchill. World war II.

Note : This post is in response of my personal uneasiness after getting across some crass and infantile articles in context of recent hostile condition between India and Pakistan and it’s geopolitical issues in general.

Okay, let’s settle our thoughts, the first three phrases might have given you an idea that this write up is all about War, like-war situations or on similar lines. But actually it is not.

This is not about war, Geo-politics or not even about recent and somewhat critical phase between two nuclear armed nations – India-Pakistan!

This is certainly not about which country is right or which one’s wrong. It is neither about which country has misplaced priorities nor about which country has actually more serious goals to attain than underscoring political mileage.
This is on serious note, only about “communicating information” in today’s steadfast digital age that too in today’s vulnerable demography across continents and sub-continents.

” The first casualty of war is Truth “

Well, whoever said it at what point of time and in what historical context , one thing is laser sharp and clear – it’s still relevant today and perhaps more relevant than ever it was!

Information technology combined with internet – with the advent of these two, communication system has taken giant leap and more so by it’s fusion with breathless social media platforms.

And with social media taking center stage in transmitting real-time fabricated information, juvenile geopolitical understanding, political propaganda – The Truth suffers casualty of leaps and bounds.

” The truth has never been this vulnerable “

Well, this is not just about two nations at conflicts, this is in general more about being sane and sincerely mindful, of what one reads and evaluates.

True, we can not always rightly judge the veracity of the information and understanding being passed online and offline, but at least we can try to be reasonable and be little learnt about the subject of information at hand- learnt through knowledge, not social media brain fed !

Well, this is real tough job to be simultaneously learnt and save the Truth – But being educated has it’s own quantum perks! Isn’t it ?! We can differentiate between what’s Historically and politically factual and what is just gibble-gabble inspiring in and out of two nations in questions!

Wrong and misinformed minds can only create chaos, not peace ! “

Point is, try not to believe instantly things you read on social media platforms. You want to be learnt or informed about things that excites your general consciousness, things about nations, geopolitical situations, demography etc. – then please try to follow some reputed, unbiased Newspapers/news channels/news platforms/Bloggers with genuine research and analysis. And in leisure, if curiosity infects you, you can grab some good books too, for some honest narratives. 🙂

“If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday”

As this was not an elaborate write up around the topic, but i hope, i am able to make some sense here and you would get the crux out of it ! 🙂

Your thoughts and insights are most welcome.. 🙃☺️

Warm Regards 🙂
Until Next time, stay safe, stay motivated.

Ships and Coins

Ships and Coins..?? You must be wondering what’s the relation?!

Right!! Relations !!

Relations – The precious Coins ! Aren’t they ?!

We don’t get precious coins these days. We forge one – Right from the beginning, till the end of our time and sometimes the aura remains beyond. It does right ?! 🙂

Yes, ‘Relations’ are the mortal ‘Ships’ we sail-in, all our lives, in all the highs and in all the lows – enduring and transforming through the waves across the grand, animated journey we call Life..

Relationships are the precious Coins we forge in our lives, with RESPECT and LOVE being it’s two undisputed sides – it’s mortal engines – equally and oppositely balancing each other.

Respect and Love…, One short of the other, And we tumble and swirl in the vortex of life’s myriad relationships, resulting, we tide through paroxysm of emotional crises.

Respect and Love…,the ultimate Hull of our sailing ships , “the Relationships” !

Respect and Love…, are the precious coins, we never ever have to toss, to choose between the two, to lose between the two.

Hold Your Coins firm!! Voyage through your Relationships! 🙂

img_20190104_14153548131067.jpg

Warm Regards .. 🙏 🙂

Thanks for your time and love.. Would love if you connect and converse too, You’re most welcome. 🙂 Lots of Love and respect to you. 🙂

#StayHealthy #StayMotivated #SpreadLove 🙂

Moments matter !

Immersing back into the ocean of love, She asked,

Who is ‘She’ to him ?!

He breathed-in, concealing the inflicting emotional wound,

looked into her stellar eyes and smilingly said,

“Moments” !!

“Moments”.., moments of heartstrings, moments he always wanted to swathe in his arms, make it a part of himself and forever shimmer in it’s beautiful reflections.. !

Moments! Moments matter!! 🙂

Burn the chaos

I breathe

I breathe the chaos within

A chaos of inextinguishable flames

flames burning into chaos of ashes

Ashes that don’t give up

Spirited and rising again

to assemble and breathe again.

I breathe

I breathe the chaos again

to become more than i perceive

to become more than i accede.

I breathe

I breathe in emotional paroxysm

Tidal and chaotic

Thunderstruck i breathe again

burning the chaos within.

I breathe

I breathe amassing the chaos within

To become more than i perceive..,

To become more than i perceive.. 🙃

Thanks for Your visit 🤗

Warm Regards 🙏😊
