Flying

HTTYD2-flying.jpg

This post of mine is a little different from the last one. It so happens that i just watched How to train your dragon 1 & 2. Its not like I hadn’t watched it before but I had to see it again today. I just love the sensations it makes me feel. God’s truth, I can’t help wanting my own dragon to fly on! Feel the wind on my face and whizzing past it! Damn!

Honestly, I think we CAN fly. Like in dreams where we literally experience the sensation of flying. As if we know it. Just have forgotten to exercise it. Humans have cracked the code to get past water i.e., swim and move on earth i.e., walk. Could it be that there is a code for getting through air too and we haven’t cracked it yet? An ability that we aren’t aware of?

Something tells me we don’t need something on the lines of rocket launchers or boosters to fly. Its all within us. Maybe one day mankind will discover that one thing…Till then Fingers Crossed.

Note: This post isn’t designed to have someone jump off the roof to discover whether we have this ability or not. Because that’ll only ascertain one thing – ‘death’😦

Fly

Just because your mind is a chaotic place, doesn’t mean you’re inept. This chaos, self-doubt and self hatred is a haze working to disturb you so don’t let it blur your vision. Keep your eyes ahead on the clear future. Keep calm and tell this disturbance that it has no power over you. You’re above it. Weaken it and slaughter it & then fly. Fly high. Beyond this doubt. Beyond this dark cloud. And reach for the beautiful light because that is where you’re meant to be.

DON’T COWER, BATTLE THE STRIFE

leap-of-faith_724_482_80

“Don’t be so quick to throw away your life. No matter how disgraceful or embarrassing it may be, you need to keep struggling to find your way out until the very end.”

― Norihiro Yagi, Claymore, Vol. 14: A Child Weapon

How often we find ourselves on the edge. Outside the circle where everyone is. Laughing, living life. Times when we feel helpless. Stuck. Unable to approach and unapproachable. Unable to move forward. Weak.

What we don’t realize is that the part where we feel weak doesn’t dictate our weakness. It merely shows that we are a real person with substance and honest feelings and life is testing us. We all have had times in our lives where we have found ourselves on the precipice. But when we have felt it,  we’ve also heard a voice. Tiny but there. It tells us to go on because we have in us what we think is missing. No matter how hard times we face we should always listen to this voice. Its the voice that God has given us as a memento. Our sword in battle.

This voice, God’s voice, that’s in all of us has been trying to tell us something in our difficult times when we’ve given ourselves to hopelessness and resignation. My interpretation of its essence is as follows:

There you are, crying again
Shedding your hopes, spirit in pain
Don’t you know, its not the end
Forge ahead, however the descend
You are courage, dreams and life
Don’t you cower, battle the strife
You may win, you may loose
Your path you may, always choose
Don’t you waver, don’t you falter
The future you may, always alter

Yes. Precisely that. We only need to let down the curtains of hopelessness that cloud our vision and mind. This cloud will only rain gloom and self-pity. We need to move it out of our vision to be able to see the bright sunlight that’s trying to streak through. This light has everything we think is beyond our reach. Beauty, hope, life and Future.

So have a little courage and reach out. Its right there waiting for you. The only accessories you’d need along the way are courage, hard work and hope. You can do it. It’ll be worth your while.

LET EGO GO

“..every once in a while, you find someone who’s iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare.”

This quote from flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen never fails to amaze me. When you see someone with their own inner light, there’s no way you can look away. This light they radiate is not about those charged particles called photons that glisten and reflect but rather an aura of positive energy that surrounds them like air. The more you reflect on it, the more you find that we all have this light. Some of us with our greed and selfishness, dim its powerful luminance.

Why do we allow ourselves to be ruled by those negative energies when we have so much to give? One powerful Satan that lives inside us is called ‘Ego’.  While we recognize that it eats everything good we can accomplish, we don’t put a stop to it or bother letting go of our pride. But once you take all the power this ego has over you, you pave the way for a radiant life.

The picture above shows an installation by sculptor Alexander Milov. Its message is so powerfully communicative that I won’t bother putting it in words. This is a reality of today’s world. We all have love, affections and so much more to share but we don’t. It remains caged where it longs to breathe and live. Our light doesn’t find any means to live. When we know this flaw we also have the means to curb it. If you have a loving partner or a mother or father or loved one, don’t cage your love for them. Don’t let your ego or misunderstandings or past stand in your way. We are allotted a very limited time here but we can make most of it if we just set ourselves free. When you keep your feelings locked up inside you, you can save your pride but you will also save yourself from a chance to be truly happy. Missing a chance to complete your life all because of a stupid pride. A pride that will only make you bleed when you realise how much you’ve lost because of it. So don’t give it this power over you.  Now or ever. Let your light guide you because heaven is right here on earth. You only need the means to find it. Ego is the heavy burden that will drown you before you ever set your eyes on the happiness you’d sailed for.
