The life inside our life…

There are times you want the movie you’re watching, to end in a different way, just so that you could call it a happy ending..

And there are these movies that will not choose a happy ending..

I’ve watched two such movies lately, n enjoyed them.. Felt the characters, and tried vaguely to understand why they made those choices..

As a bystander, choosing the happy ending comes so easy!! But when it’s time we make those choices in real life, it’s quite tough..

N hence these characters make sense, n the absence of the ‘fairy tale ending’ seems perfect!!

Yet, it needn’t be this way! 


I’ve always loved watching movies, n perhaps some day if I have the will to pursue the desire, would love to write one..

Movies have the potential to take you to the depths of your soul, through another’s shoes..

Watching this movie ‘Me before You’ was exceptionally purposeful last night.

I felt grateful for all the life inside my life. Could feel the character regretting the absence of life, even though he was alive. Life was, for him, being able to do stuff that he used to do..n so the absence of the ability felt like the lack of life..

We have our lives soaking n drenching with abilities, n yet we take them for granted..which isn’t uncommon..n a movie like this one jolts us back to realize the joy in being able to move our bodies in the way we do now..

It’s a must watch for sure!! 

Me Before You!!

Offering gratitude for being able to move my fingers on the iPad to write this one..

Signing off..

Solo adventures

Sipping tea at 2 pm, with my lovely companions.. Netflix and the ear plugs..
We do make a great combo..especially if the movie in spotlight is worth the watch..

These nights when half the world is asleep, I know ..only the creatives are out there.. Their internal light bulbs glowing to the max, I offer gratitude for all of those who’ve chosen the deeper, untreaded paths..

There is way too much satisfaction out here! In the deep recesses of our soul, where unlimited treasures hide..

And the guys who write books, plays, movies, ….or just about anything… To them it’s pouring their hearts out..leaving their soul out in the open, at its vulnerable best..

Yet to the people reading it, it’s their entry into a new world!! A world they fear to experience cuz it’s way too cold to stay out there..it’s way to uncertain..the roads are too rough.. N they’re probably not yet ready to ask the questions that need to be asked…n that’s perfect ❤️🎁

N I’m glad I’m on this side of the world thats sleeping as I awaken to the joys of being who I am!! 

I’m glad I’ve asked all the questions, even if they’re super tough.. N I’m glad to have realized there is no exam, n no right answers…

There is either regret or joy!!

Am glad I can say it’s JOY ive chosen…

N even when there is an absence of joy, I promise there is no space for regret to come in!!

It’s either a neutral space of questioning or a joyful space of answering..

N as lonely as the road appears, it definitely is worth the walk…

Cuz enjoying ones own company can be the best high!! I’ve never tried liquor or any kinda alcohol ever..

But I’m so sure, the high I feel …when I’m in this gratitude loaded space sitting smilingly with myself …can match nothing..

Cheers to solo adventures (even if they are tiny in size n rare in occurrence) 

PINK

How can I feel offended when I’ve embraced the darkness within?

The incompleteness is inside the onlooker, hence it jumps to the surface when u see this painting..

The art piece is more complete than I could ever be!

Scratching n scraping the dark stuff off, is too cumbersome.. n for what?

For the on lookers to appreciate the light??

When there’s darkness inside everyone of us, why should I bother??

It’s a part of me!! N it’s the society that says it’s dark..

To me it’s just black! A colour that has its own vibration.. a colour that describes the colour of my eyes, my hair, my kajal, my shoes, …..

I love it just as much as the pink!!

N when I appreciate it, the illusion falls off!!

There is no darkness..

The empty space I once felt inside me was just the space for infinite possibilities..

N the black lines here only contrast the pink more n more..

Plain n pink isn’t valued.. it’s when u make it stand against the black that u wanna choose it..

Is it the pink you’re choosing or the black you’re running away from??

Look deeply… at the core it’s all pink…

All pink!!

My brick wall!

I’ve always desired to have one ‘brick wall’ in my home that’s not painted or styled or even white washed..

Just as is!

Cuz in our life however we grow n keep adding stuff to our belongings, our life is this brick wall..

Vulnerable, plain n beautiful, holding together this big life of ours..however beautiful it appears when styled with posh stuff, when it crumbles everything comes down..

I wanna remind myself that life is beautiful thanks to my spirit : the brick wall!

The beauty at the core..

The vulnerability n plainness..

Accepting itself as is, with no fake thrills n frills..

Just the way it is..

N this below is my brick wall..


It is more than what it appears!

It is the space for beautiful creations, beauties infinite times it’s size..

It’s the space where I write.. stuff that’s so deep .. no amount of space can describe it..

This brick wall , my studio …does justice to it!

Simple, stained with the high vibrations of inspiration n coloured with love..

I clean it as much as I can n what wishes to stay, just stays..

The stains are As welcome as my paintings..

Just cuz it appears this way don’t judge it!

It’s just as pure as the divine 🎁

I love my studio n offer gratitude for it, declutter it as frequently as possible.. n sip my tea here..

It’s in the small things that the depth of life is felt..

Breakthrough

There is something inside of me, that no one can take away. I cannot be robbed of it ever, no one can borrow it. 

I, however can choose to give it to others, n yet it doesn’t leave me! The more I give away..the more of it remains..

N this is the true treasure I should be worrying about..or rather NOT worrying about.

Cuz it’s a done deal! It’s with me, I can give it yet not lose it. It will never leave me, n it only grows every time I give it…

Wow!!! Isn’t this true abundance???

It’s everywhere around me…

– the comfort I have in wearing the same blue shrug every single day..people may take the shrug, but this feeling of being okay with whatever I wear n look good in it- untakeable..

– the confidence that my art is the best I could ever create.. I can sell my art, but this confidence just keeps growing… N stays with me. Becomes me

– the trust that I could never get lost in a new city/ unknown place.. I could be really lost, yet the safe feeling of being home.. WOW!!!

Love this time of my life. Continuous ups n downs. Every low brings a high, n every high is followed by a low…

Isn’t this what I wished for!

Being on the edge.. Struggling with the idea of who I am.. Facing it every single moment..

The struggle was always there! It was just that I didn’t know it was what I desired..

I know it now. N embrace the struggle.. Cuz it’s my eye witness that I’m living life king size..

Exploiting it to the max..

I’m here now, on the other side of the breakthrough..

JOY????

It’s underrated!! Completely.. Cuz it’s free n can be multiplied irrespective of resources available..
Cuz It’s too good for our health, and it adds years to our life..
Cuz It’s spreads faster than a virus, can be sensed and detected by pets, and other living beings..
Cuz It’s in harmony with nature..
Cuz it doesn’t cause any stress or problems, for us to worry about n the solution makers ..it leaves them out of work..

Yeah!! JOY!!

It’s underrated..

The focus of generations after generations is survival??? seriously??? 
I thought we were covered there..even the animals in the circle of life know the fittest survive..
We are Human BEings..Survival isn’t why we chose earth?.
We chose earth to push our limits, our boundaries, to know our true power..

But the easiest way to do that was to find our JOY!!

Our JOY!!!
No one ever asked me to follow joy. I see my kid doing exactly that..

How come he knows it so easily n I don’t?? Well, now I do!!

Is it really such a tough question, or it’s too boring?? 

Why don’t we ask ourselves what brings us JOY?? N do what does..

If we start doing a few things that bring us joy, regularly.. It’s easier to find joy in everything..

It really is that simple!

There’s no answer as to why something brings us joy..

Sitting on the swing? Watching movies? Making music? Cooking? Writing? Partying? Hosting parties? Studying? Teaching?

Project management? Website designing?? Any designing?? Craft?? Driving??? Photography? Business?? Managing human resources?? Any resources???

Where is your JOY?

Let me ask you, to please find it!! Let us be a generation that trusts that things work out, life is easy, life is abundant and joy is everywhere ..or atleast where we know we will find it..

It’s not tough!! It really is easy..❤️

Treasure Hunt!

Couple of times each day,
We’re lucky enough 
for the treasure to confront us

Couple of times each day,
the treasure is stubborn enough
to get our attention

couple of times each day,
this treasure is right there around us
for a change, not going unnoticed

couple of times each day,
we’re aligned with what we’re seeking
n its ours already

couple of times each day
we shine our brightest, n glow effervescently

Couple of times each day
We have won the battle already
N are rejoicing with our victory dance

Couple of times each day
We ARE who we came to be..As if life showcased it’s glorious trailer

If couple of times each day
Could turn into couple of hours each day, n couple of days each week..

the illusion would fall apart
leaving pure light to shine
n then nothing would matter♥️🎁
