From The Dark To The Bright?

We say with such simplicity that we want every color in our life.. then why do we dislike the dark phases so much? Why don't we accept them the way we accept the bright phases? The dark ones are also colors, aren't they? When we get surrounded by them, why do we suddenly start realizing that we don't like the dark colors?

Why is it so difficult to deal with situations when your loved ones suffer? When you see them in trouble, what makes you forget that everything in life provides you with a chance to learn and grow?

Vulnerability, is it cool only when we invite it in our life? Humbleness, does it shine only when we choose to see the glory of nature? Why do we believe that those who have received vulnerability from life are miserable?

Maybe tough times are not meant to test our toughness. Maybe such times want to teach us that while the solutions would be found with a cool head, the strength would come from the heart.

Then, how fortunate it is, that during such times, we get to see the love coming around? We see blessings, wishes and hopes pouring from all over, telling us that our canvas will be filled with all bright colors once again..

And so, we realize that our love isn't the only strength we have.. we also have another strength, which is not generated by us, and hence, not subjected to the weakness we suffer from.

To that strength then!

Contradictions

If contradictions do not exist, then all that we're seeing around is transition. A foot kept forward, yet, a foot remaining behind in that old place.

And if we see it that way, transition is real for most part of the life. So do I expect to "see" contradictory actions for most part of the life as well?

I do not, actually. I expect to see contradictions only when a boundary is crossed. But such boundaries will not be well defined, right? They would mostly be just notional.

In fact, they may be so blur that the only way I would be able to identify them would be by observing a contradiction..

Does that make contradiction an indicator?

But wait....!

That's the point, right? Contradiction is nothing BUT an indicator for something else that is happening in background?

Ah! So to clear all the confusion, ...it seems that contradiction is not a state. It is just an indicator for a changing phase.

Hmm..

I should try to apply this argument more explicitly to my Masters' project.. see if it helps in understanding the project environment any better....

चंद्राची सांज आणि दुपारीचा तोरा

सांजेचे हे रूप.. हळद आणि गुलालाने सजलेले..
हे रूप दुपार कधीच घेऊ शकत नाही.
तिला फार तर ढगांची ओढणी.
पण हा श्रुंगार सांजच करू जाणे.

कधी कधी चंद्राची ओढ असं काही करायला भाग पाडत असेल सांजेला..
सांजेचा हा श्रुंगार पाहुन चंद्र तार्‍यांचा लवाजमा मागे सोडून अवेळी उगवतही असेल.

आणि ती दुपार, तिला हे सारं अनोळखी.
तिला स्वतःची तळपदार, मिश्कील ऐट.
तिचा खेळ आणि तिचा काळ दोन्ही वेगळे.
दाहक, निर्भीड, आपल्यातच परिपूर्ण.

A Fight With Dreams

Have you ever been really angry with your dreams? Like, 'you better walk out of my life and go to any sort of hell you please' angry?

I have. It's one of the most unpleasant feels. I think a more unpleasant thing was to realize that I will have to fix things on my own. If I don't, the anger or the dreams aren't going to change at all. No matter what!

I just want to be angry! Especially when I have the right to be so! And I want those stubborn dreams to sort out themselves without my help.

I should sleep.

P.S: Funny that this post should follow the lollipops? But this isn't contradictory. Lollipops are accidents. Dreams are investments. Especially those dreams which are simple.

P.P.S: If I have to fix anything myself at all, I should rather fix the situation than fixing my dreams. Yeah. I should keep that in mind for morning when I get up a bit saner.

I Love Lollipops

Because things happen only once in life. And there are no replays.
THAT is what makes life so amazing.
That everything that happens to us, happens for the first and the last time.
Every time, life offers you a new lollipop. Unlike all the previous ones. Like the Every Flavor Beans..
Some foul. Some sweet. But all unique.


(Of course, unlike with the beans, in real life, each flavor changes as we do.)

What I like even more than the uniqueness is the other dimension. You can never run out of lollipops. Big deal if you miss a chance. Well, it may actually be a big deal. But so what, there shall be more to come.
