Who am I?

I seek the eternal Knowledge, and I seek the purpose of my birth.
Along the way, I enjoy a few laughs and search for happiness from within.
I meet a few men, and wonder whats their history and some I wish to be.
I see a dream but cannot put it into words for I see an Ideal world.
What joy in birth, what sorrow in death, I find them meaningless, or atleast I ought to.
And that says it all, all about the inner me.

Let things be

It doesn't matter. I have come to the stage where I think and consider personal choices the highest possible freedom I can give to myself and others. So I shall do what I want to and you shall do you want to. No questions on whether this is right or wrong. What feels right is right, what feels wrong is wrong. Why should we follow a set definition for these two terms? I don’t think I will. If this seems like selfishness, then this is the way I choose to be, this is my way to enlightenment, whatever it is that I seek, of which I know nothing. You can be with me, along the way, a companion to the journey, as I would be a companion to other people's journey including yours, but do not ask me to change my path, my journey, for I want to walk the way myself. Ask me no promises because I do not know where I will be tomorrow but at the same time, do not curtail your own freedom and supress your thoughts and expressions. What we perceive is what we believe. I choose to percieve things in this way. Let's continue our journey without stopping to analyze why we are on this path because it is not the time to do so when you are just starting. I haven't seen the path clearly, it is still dawn and until sunlight comes I wont be able to say if this is heaven or hell. Let things be.



When someone reads a text, wants to discover its meaning, he will not scorn the symbols and letters and call them deceptions, coincidence, and worthless hull, but he will read them, he will study and love them, letter by letter. But I, who wanted to read the book of the world and the book of my own being, I have, for the sake of a meaning I had anticipated before I read, scorned the symbols and letters, I called the visible world a deception, called my eyes and my tongue coincidental and worthless forms without substance. No, this is over, I have awakened, I have indeed awakened and have not been born before this very day."

No Commitments!

Well, the first of the lot has fallen! I am referring to the fact that one of my friends has gone and done the unforgivable and committed the sin of committing to someone! And officially at that!

Since a few years ago, I am sharing this deep bond of togetherness (mind you, not just friendship) with a few broad-minded individuals (I think!) who I consider links from my past (You know, Karma and all that?). Admittedly, these people do not know this unwritten law of 'no commitment'. At times, even I have temporarily lost sight of this and considered to 'Tango' but fortunately, I regained my senses just in time. But come on, having grown up together, is it bad to expect to continue to grow old together? And BS to those who say "One day, you will be old and tired and all your family will be will have nobody by your side, you will regret your decision to stay uncommitted then!"

The other day, I read this article in the ET which served as a huge inspiration and reiterated what I have started considering in recent times. Life will be one great party, I can imagine. To top it all off, I got this offer to run away (ok, ok not run away but hmm.. maybe.. just leave everything and...go?!) from one of the individuals I mentioned earlier and I found the offer, let me tell you, very very TEMPTING. Why not? What holds me to this place and the people in it? Yes, I was born here and people have 'sacrificed many things in their life' to bring me to this stage of life (dialogues!) but that doesn't mean they expect me to do the same, right? That probably contradicts my expectation from my friends! Life is so full of contradictions (Great discovery, that one!)

As I was telling LS, who incidentally has written another masterpeice that smack-mack-dack inspired me, nothing is 'mutually exclusive' in this world. I truly believe that. Love and hate can co-exist together. Boredom and Excitement. And so many other things that are seemingly contradicting on the surface. And this is only at the two-dimensional plane. Consider multi-dimensions! The mind will simply boggle! If you try to make sense of it, am sure, you will only reach the state which the society lovingly calls 'insane' (I have some interesting thoughts to share on that subject 'Insanity', maybe later!).

Here I am, totally digressed from the topic I intended to write on, babbling about Kundalini and all that! (Ya, ya I never mentioned Kundalini but thats where it was going next, take my word!) I call this "Free Writing", a trick I learnt recently from the net to practice good writing which will help me become a better 'Marketing Communication Specialist." So having done the bit for the day, I am forced to say "That's all folks" and end what could have led to the birth of one of the the best books of this century, possible titled "Random thoughts of an enlightened and insane nobody"!

Till next time!
