Reader’s Request: 1. Soul

After a pretty long time I have finally settled down to share all the vivid thoughts over the topic suggested by my favourite peeps out there. And first one I chose to share a perspective about is Soul!

Always been fascinated with this concept of “soul”. A shapeless energy form or the core of the real self is what soul is described as technically. But isn’t it intriguing how we have wandered around this quest of existence of soul as good as existence of God. Not saying that they are totally related but then just stating facts.
Soul is where all the answers lie. It’s a version which knows everything. Your soul is something that knows so much about you and everything else that all this life is about how closer you got to achieve your higher self, the ultimate version, your soul.

Life would be so much easier if we saw ourselves as a soul being inside a body vessel & not as a body vessel having a soul.

This quote was an eye opener to me years before when I read it for the first time. This was a little statement with so much of depth trying to remind us of how wrong we were right from the beginning. If we would see ourselves as a soul versions, our description of beauty might not be the makeup masked face or tall physique,gym body nor the character would be described by judgements passed based on the society norms. Instead beauty would be something that the soul would radiate. Character would be something the soul followed. And most importantly no one would be fake. Yep, seems so like fantasy! Because it literally strikes out half of the mess in the world, including racism, religious discrimination, sexism, wars & the list probably goes on.
So question is why? If we can clearly see it now where we go wrong why can’t we adjust to that n fix it? Like after reading all of that bookish philosophical stuff that you probably know & heard a lot about in a lot of places…why can’t you still see people’s soul but just their face & the physical form. Why can’t you see the soul radiating out of them flashing their character. Well answer is for that you’ll have to know your soul first. And by that I don’t mean bluntly accepting & concluding “yes I have a soul it’s inside me” just because everything in the world is telling you so! It’s an experience to actually feel it inside you & there’s a part where you realize that tadann that’s the real you the whole time. Just silently hiding there stuck inside this body and tadann one more surprise you realize you forgot why you got inside this body at the first place. Yes it’s Trippy & nope I’m not kidding. It’s exactly that way. Frame it in technical terms & again it turns into some philosophy! By the way this part was just the start of it. Here you actually realize there’s a soul in you. While all this might be scary to experience, to see it all is actually true, you start to see the bigger picture. Problems seem to be aligned in a way that you know a way out & what not. Things become clear. It takes a lot of efforts to actually get there not because soul is so complicated but because we are mostly blinded. Blinded by faith. By fear of what we might discover. Blinded by  materialism & you know the list would go on.
Point is that’s our choice, to take a step there & find out all the answers we are looking for. Or just turn around back into this race. Some never feel their own soul. Never! They are too busy with satisfying the body probably ending up stuck into never-ending pointless loop till they have their wake up call! 😉
Now that’s the thing, we choose to learn, to know & to experience everything we are about to and we already did. Making choices, Right choices to be precise is something our higher self would know better. That’s all the life is about. To evolve into something that you already are hiding beneath. Trick is just realizing how.
It’s as good as saying if you have a wonderful master brain inside you and you are given access to just 10% of it. What would you do? Adjust to everything around in the 10% given or evolve to access all of it & know what you really have? 😉 Choices you know.

Fear: Loop of traps

image

Fear has grown to be the disguised reason behind every misery including war, hate, religion, lie etc. Reason behind anything to rise high enough that we can’t see beyond it lies humanity is fear.
“Real enemy is fear, we think it’s hate but it’s fear” -Gandhi
Human mind is tricky, it can create entire new version of world inside it. One of it’s creation is ‘Fear’. It can build entire vast hold on it. Fear is a mere trap placed by your mind to stop you from seeing beyond it. It’s a mirage, just a negative one. It won’t comfort you, but take you far away from it.
Fear can be seen in different types including phobias, fears caused by lack of knowledge, wrong believes, cultures, stories, etc. Simply anything can lead to fear because your mind is its creator and it’s vast to fit all the universes in it.

“Fear is a choice. Don’t be mistaken, Danger…is real, very real. But your action towards it is your choice.” -After Earth

All your actions to anything you frame as dangerous leads to a choice taken as fear. Emotions are highly connected to this concept. Anything that is precious can be lost, fear of loss. Mind games? Do you see it? Again, emotions are very real but choice of thinking about its loss or experiencing them right in the moment is the choice made. Fear of loss of things started because emotions of giving reduced. As humans will get closer to loss of connection within themselves, by connection I mean on the soul level… Subconscious level, more the fears will take over the human minds.
We no more can feel a soul to any depths. Feel someone’s pain, feel their happiness, like our own. It’s a rare phenomenon now. With loss of such depth, all we are left with fears that fill those blank spaces there. Fear of pain, fear of loss of happiness, more of common phenomenon now, so common that’s its now a part of human psychology & even in its study now

image

You see the point here love? You need to set lose all the things that you are holding back. Ask your mind every time you are occupied with fear, what is beyond it? Because, every time…  Fear hides something from you, a wisdom & an achievement to rise over it.
Fear about losing people? That entirely is an emotional grace. But you know what? You love those people a lot, for whom you hold the fear of loss, yet it’s incomplete..the love. How? Because your little focus is diverted thinking about the loss & not loving them entirely. Erase the fear part, remember it’s a choice. Fill it with more love. Thoughts do cross our minds, I know. Danger is real. Fear is not.
We are blessed with something really wonderful, our mind, our brain. Let’s wrap it more towards connecting deeper to each other, that’s the key to loss of all fear. Let’s not be in control of various scars of this era and look beyond all of them, to finally know what’s beyond it?
-TheLadyMystery

This post is again written on the ‘word suggestion’ game. ‘Fear’ was an interesting word to share perspective on. Any more suggestions of the next word then please share it in the comments below! I’ll make sure interesting posts come up on it! 😉

Game of Words

You mastered the game of masks,
I mastered the game of words.
That’s how i caught your lies,
That’s how i know your disguise.
Your’s might be the story of rumors many heard,
But i see the face of cursed.
Ah, no.. not a curse of destruction.
Curse to be lost in self definition.
To find yourself out,
You’ll have to solve the riddles and clues,
Who can know to play with words so well?
If not the person to meet you into the blues!
Game of words, speak wisdom,
You cant trick them with masks and lies.
All it’s existence and beginning lies in those words disguised.

The untouched void <3

You wanna be a Ray of light,
Being the hope of minds.
Here, you’ll have to be the knight,
Because it’s the blackhole’s mind.
Even the light can’t enter n heal it fine,
It’s a mystery many try to know.
How easy it may seem to define it in a line,
But, oh it’s with millions of supernovas.
How empty it looks & how dark it seems,
The truth known by any? Just estimations written along
Reality lies inside for the one who tries,
But oh it’s scary, to the scariest nightmare maybe it belongs.
Indeed a mystery it remained all this while,
A million tries of many just a failure in disguise.
It was born after so many stories that died inside to take a rebirth.
No wonder, not many understand it.. oh that little mind is a prejudice.
And You little Ray of light?
Fastest of all they say in there,
How can you escape the touch of a black hole?
Nothing goes in to leave out here!
Aye hope of life of many?
Why you wish to stop your glorious speed now?
And so happily you call it your destiny!
Your choice and claims to fail the theories so fine
It’s your little Fatansy story,
Turn back now.. when you can.
Once touched the orbit of the heart,
Where many just can dream or assume to reach,
This black hole then pulls you hard,
They call it it’s gravity.
& that’s when you’ll have to lose it all.
Turn back, silly knight,
You don’t enter a war to see your own fall.

The Dance of the Soul <3

Let my Soul re-learn the dance it forgot,
& let it’s peace heal the scars inside.
Oh, Soul of mine was an artist always,
It will colour all your black phases into Rainbow days.

Alive & bold the soul would dance,
Nerves would reverberate in the beats of trance.
Rebirth ritual it would follow everytime it got broken.
Soul grew so stronger, with every breakdown it just got awakened.

Breathing in the stars delight,
Floating on the still water tonight,
The Soul soaked in the peace it needed,
& the wonderful energy got all the scars mended.

Beautiful dance where the body didn’t even move,
But Soul didn’t miss any groove.
A Soul healed so well,
Was left with calmness & a lot of morals to tell.

Twisted Wishes

Ever wished for a best friend so much
And end up being theirs
But no one knows the real story of yours.

Ever wished for light so much
That you end up being one
And still it hurt your eyes n make them burn.

Ever wished for freedom so much
And end getting it all
But got left in solitude in every fall.

Ever wished for dreams so much
And they all come true eventually somehow
But they lose the essence in now.

Ever wished a wish so much,
And all turned true n everything u found
But wished again you knew before things could turn around.

Prejudice: Game of Illusions

Humans have tendencies to draw conclusions very quickly. Human brain tries to justify whatever they see or they think or they choose. This reaction takes place in the brain in matter of seconds. Many a times we conclude and stick to that point before knowing entire story of it. When it comes to relations, prejudice can play double role, a good one which often teams up with instincts and act as a warning and sometimes as worst as understanding a person completely wrong.

While walking across the streets if you come across a beggar who is hitting stones on dogs vigorously, you might conclude how heartless and insane it is to do so? Rewind this a bit, and you’ll see the dogs attacking the beggar, biting him and taking away the piece of bread he arranged for his meal.

prejudice

This happened with me too. I had a fellow mate who was kinda hipster, all boozing and smoking and stuff. And we had this Art work going on which was going to be huge. And to my surprise, he joined in to help us with our art work. Trust me he was an mind blowing artist. Suddenly entire perspective towards him changed. He often spoke in one liners, but they were inspiring enough to get stuck in head forever.

Every story hides prejudices I feel. Conclusions drawn with an entire perspective not being considered. How does it feels when people don’t understand the real side of you? Mostly even if you justify, they’ll see what they want too and understand according to their perceptions only.

Even in the batman movie before you conclude the Joker was a criminal you come to know his side of the story, where he doesn’t actually seem to be wrong but legit. The habit of drawing conclusions is too quick that we forget the endless possibilities attached to it! Our entire universe is a part of a theory, it was all one theory, and now we believe it like an ultimate truth! Remember? Every story hides prejudices? Oh that was just to consider the possible boundaries of prejudices. So Interesting this small thing can get. So be alert when your thoughts are about to conclude, when they are trying to justify, just keep a silent check, are they playing the game of illusions with you?
