The Leap

The Leap

What makes most people follow and do things which everybody else is doing?Why are most people such conformists even when their own logic and reason would disagree to their ways of going about life? Is there something called "conditioned genetic code" ? or is fear the basis of not being able to stand up for what one believes in? We've got the answer; Fear it is.So then, the question arises,will the collective human spirit,living in such fear,be able to truly evolve? or is it the domain of just the chosen few who question their fears and overcome them through deeper awareness of the Self? When will the vast mankind transform from "collective herd" to being their real "individual selves"?Would that be against the natural order of social existence and therefore detrimental to the established order?Would that lead to total chaos? But doesn't beauty finally emerge from chaos;from disorder to harmony?Look at a sweet smelling flower.From dirt to fragrance and colour; it veers clear from chaos to spring forth with the exuberance of life.

Now,how do we start?Beginning with our own selves,firstly by deconditioning "our system" off all the societal norms and while the inner questioning is taking place,one exercises patience, as the storm within will ultimately subside leading to eternal peace.Secondly,we need to let our children carve their own path.Allow them to break open their own cocoon of obstacles and emerge stronger to fly out to the sky of wonderful possibilities.We may protect them from harm's way but most importantly, let them breathe the air of freedom and form their own experiences.Are we ready to take the leap?

Different journeys

Different journeys


On a cliff,beholding a beautiful sight,
In a faraway forest by the riverside,
I grew,all beauty,colour and fragrance,
Waking up with the warmth of sun's first rays,
Basking in The light Supreme,
Equally content under the stars and the moon,
And I rest,one with the Earth,to be back again on the cliff.

One day,some weary travellers brushed past my way,
And my seeds fell on the kingdom's soil.
I sprang forth with all my grace,
Into dreary,trodden hearts,my fragrance brought joy,
To tired eyes,my colour provided soothing relief.

Confined not,my heart's love to myself,
In the garden of lonely souls,
Breeze of love's fragrance bloweth,
I know not of what use, this overflowing love,
If not to share,then why life's web?

My world on the cliff,brought happiness abundant,
But here,away from the heaven above,
I pour cool,sweet elixir-my being's reason,
Exist not I just to love myself,
A flower I am,My fragrance for all.

Jeans

A PAIR OF JEANS!

What could possibly have the qualities of free human spirit?Ever wondered about the universal appeal of a pair of jeans?Above class,gender,nationality or religion, a pair of jeans makes its own statement,no matter what colour it carries.With an attitude of defiance,it can stand alone or mingle.The masses or classes,everyone can be seen, reaching out for that pair of jeans,making it part of their skin.A garment that carries universal consciousness?Perhaps.
