When life gets hard
and all you want is peace,
but all you get is chaos.

When you feel like disappearing
and all you want is reassurance,
but all you get is criticism.

On the days when you're afraid
and all you want is being acknowledged,
but all you get is being neglected.

When you're sitting alone trying to make
sense of hustle and bustle around,
and all you want is to live your dream
but all you get is to change perceptions.

When words fail to outlast
and all you want is be heard,
but all you get is a conclusion.

Being strong is the only choice left...

                                                                -Aroo Joshi



DON'T BE AFRAID

It's amazing how one word means different things to different people.

Like silence, for example. It could mean yes, or it could mean no. It can be seen as weakness, but I see it as strength. Because it takes a lot of patience to keep your voice inside, and muffle your sobs. It's normally easier to just let go and make noise. And if there is one thing I have learned, is that this is a weapon some people use to keep others on their toes. It cuts, both ways.

Keeping mum, and not answering back doesn't mean the other is afraid. It might mean they respect the other, or is compassionate, so they keep it in. When they do, I hope we would also do the same. Hold thy tongue, because it can be s...

The greatest modern philospher today will be one whose insights and ideas are so profound that it influences humanity through mere revelation. The power of the thoughts alone have weight of influence, without the need to persuade. It is complex and intricate but not at all esoteric. Its aim is to revert the disconnection of humanity in their everyday lives and bring about a harmonious alignment with their own consciousness and with the social consciousness as a whole. The practical reality would be to refocus all our existing efforts into creating machines that generate abundant, almost infinite material wealth autonomously so that humanity has the freedom to thrive without the burden of prod...

As the clock ticks 4, Strain your ears and you'd hear a murmur of vagabonds ,
While a cuckoo will tune itself to the song of dawn ,somewhere you'd hear a distant bark , or the honk of a rare car, a tinkling from the bicycle passing by , screech of a sleepy owl, soft cry of neighbour's baby , a squeak of the hidden mouse, before your alarm comes up with its own peice of sound , open those eyes wide and hear the secrets whisper of the Cosmos, if you happen to wake up during the interim of morning and dark , strain your ears hard enough and listen to the music playing within the heart !

The big coffin is Sherwood's coffin. The small one is mine. Sherwood says, " Your dad did a big mistake by leaving you behind. I'll make sure I take you along when I die." Hmm that's why I drew two coffins. Since he's  six feet tall, his coffin is a little bigger. We'll be buried side by side so that I can eat his brains up even in the cemetery. 😊😊.

To speak with a single voice
The 'I' should be changed to 'We'
Leave selfishness and prejudice aside
Open our mind and our heart
To realize that our common ground is humanity.
And this entails collective responsibilities.
With small actions we can achieve great goals.
But for that we must all do our part to make that voice that represents us all fight for a better world.

Juliet.~

In deference to a close friend:

TL:DR.

Why do many still believe in God? We are social beings who have biologically evolved past individual survival and subsistence. We long for the capacity to effect positive change on those around us. Capitalist society does not encourage this and we feel helpless. God therefore is our answer - he/she will do what, currently, we feel we cannot.

God is who we feel we have the potential to become, but as yet cannot.

Continued:

The debate that Sam Harris, Michael, Jean and Deepak Chopra had should not have been "Does God have a future?" but "Why does archaic belief in God still exist in modern society?" (though the term archaic hints at negative connotati...

One of the few human qualities that truly inspires is resilience.

And there are few persons I know with greater resilience than my mother.

How she has endured, and how she can still endure time and time again is a testament to her boundless generosity. Her ongoing sacrifices for her loved ones in the face of continued adversity is a wonderment to behold.

I look back at my childhood with genuine disbelief and incredulity. How did a single mother put three boys through private education, complete with extra tutoring lessons, on an hourly wage that would have barely satisfied the needs of one person? How many hours must she have sewn? How many personal indulgences must she have forgone? The s...

To speak as 'One Voice' would require a gigantic effort.. Though we are all made of flesh n bones, every single  person is diverse in his own way.. Every single country has a different culture.. To speak about peace, harmony and oneness, it mean to overcome our differences.. Barriers that religion, prejudice and superstitions create.. These abstract barriers are quite strong and distance even the closest people.. To feel the oneness, we should talk about love, humanity, positivity and gifts of nature that we all enjoy but in different ways..

*Begging for Change*

We are intertwined in a divine constant. Reaching out from beyond creation, craving the taste of sweetness on the breath of man. Starving. Gaunt on the crumbs of mercy and tolerance.

By and by, we collide in fractured axioms, filtered by suited knaves, scooping piles of poison into the mouths of the masses. They feed; little babies, not knowing the teat they suckle upon only serves to sever us from virtue. This is not the sight that forms the frame of humanity.

We bleed the bonds that silently suffer in neglect. I am not merely one of few that see! Am I? No, we are many, hidden in frustration. Igniting the night in reverent rage!

Oh, but how these eyes, langui...

When your past calls
Don't answer
Because it has nothing new to say!
All that should matter for you is
Present and future!

REJECTION

Terminated is not an end fella
Your are not down until

You stop
To value the sparkle every drop of your sweat brought in rising you

You stop
To value the discipline with time your past brought

You stop
To value the quirk of coordination your past inculcated

You stop
To value ‘ready for extreme’ spirit night shifts gave birth to

You stop
To value imagery of subconscious mind to designations it came up to

You stop
To value the positivity of past every second even if for a day you felt

And most important of all to Value your daydreams that kept you alive and added the values above to make your heart strong enough to be The Leader of your own Start up fella.

“What you are is s...

Peace and tranquility will remain together when there are no obstacles along when you endeavor in the great escape. Let your mind run free and dabble in anything imaginable.

What we need is one voice
For love and kindness
Sharing and support
To build together a stronger fort.
A shelter strong
With warmth and air
A world that's safe as it is fair.
One voice to sing in joy
For all the beauty in the world
It's your voice, it's my voice
It's everyone I've ever heard.

What would get everyone in the world to speak as one?
That's a question I CAN answer and that might get the job done
If we all have one thing in common, then maybe, just maybe, our voices will be heared
Because we're all saying the same words

#Peace #One voice day

We're all humans, aren't we? I would be the happiest person if everyone joins hands and tell the world what equality is. Let the world speak of the feelings and thoughts of oneness. Let there be no disparities between anyone.  Enjoy today and let others enjoy as well. Let's try to live in a better world, which is free from all ills.  We've got to spread the power of unity and charge ourselves with compassion.
