Troubled times…..

Well I was just sitting and having dinner at a friends place and suddenly we started recollecting our school days and the problems we faced like failing in an particular subject (for me it was always marathi) or getting into some kind of trouble with the teacher or getting caught by the parents (u know how we all r during teens..i guess no need to mention the reasons)…..and with the discussion continuing we had a great laugh about and almost for each bad experience that happened in our life.

So I was just thinking but at that moment was I enjoying what was happening around me and the answer is no. After getting out of college we face trouble giving an interview finishing our work on time or having a crush on a girl/guy who is definitely not interested in u but today we thank god that u r no longer hooked with that person or he/she got married to some1 else or how u came out of the trouble or u got urself screwed up n made a mess, still u will see that while discussing it with friends u are laughing on it. So most of the troubles we face in life ends up as a good memory (not every trouble though) which we love discussing n sharing with our friends.

So now the question is why i m writing this, well even I m trying to figure that out. Can we just not enjoy the trouble with a smiling face that once it is over its not that bad as it seems today coz one thing which is gona be a part of our lives is trouble which exist in some or the other way and I m sure that even today we don’t enjoy being a part of it. So from now on if you are getting late for a date(which m sure guys will never be),office or u have not finish the work or u have messed with some1 or u r broke(as recession is going on n m kind of… PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO SMILE and enjoy yourself being in a trouble.

“Life is like a cigarette. It has been lighted so enjoy it coz it has to end whether u want it or not.”

LOVE - an unsolved mystery

Sometimes we think we have figured out everything we need to know about love and the very next moment we are lost, well that’s love. Pyramids of Egypt, Bermuda Triangle ,UFO’S are some of the unsolved mysteries of the universe which might get solved one day but am afraid about love but till then love falls in the same category because no wonder how many have figured it out it always redefines itself which is something unique about it.

KABIR says “Love’s not grown in gardens,/ Love’s not sold at market./ He who wants it, king or commoner,/ gives his head and takes it”.
There is only one way to obtain love: the man who wants love gives his head. He will have to sacrifice his ego, his pretence, his false show. This is what Kabir means by ‘head’.

According to Kabir, a man of letters is a scholar who has only read about love. The Hindi word for love is ‘prem’, and is made up of two and a half letters. Kabir says to read these two and a half letters in a book is meaningless. Only when a person falls in love with someone do the two and half letters of ‘Prem’ become complete. One letter is for the lover, the second is for the beloved and the half is for something unknown that exists between the two.

No matter how hard you try, love never becomes complete. You are never content... It is also an indication that it is everlasting. Remember, whatsoever attains to completion, dies. To remain incomplete is love’s nature. So a lover is never satisfied and therefore his joy is endless.

So from now on lets stop defining love and compromise life in the name of love.Lets just live a life full of love and not based on practical theories do's n don'ts.If u love a person and he\she loves u too there is nothing u can ask for more.
