seeking solace

Originally posted on Indian Poet Nikhil Parekh:

WHEN I FELT that the pace of life was overwhelmingly hectic; I sought solace in the blissful backdrop of the mystical valley,
When I felt that my legs were indefatigably tired; I sought solace in the king poster bed; tucking them cozily under the frilled mattress,
When I felt that each bone impregnated in my body hurt like a thousand corpses; I sought solace in the rejuvenating pool of herbal liquid,
When I felt that my tongue had lost all sensation of taste and aroma; I sought solace in a bunch of stupendously seductive grapes dangling in the dense forests,
When I felt that my scalp was being attacked by infinite battalions of red ant and termite; I sought solace under the waterfall of medicated shampoo; to wholesomely annihilate the last scrap of dirt from its very roots,
When I felt that my fingers simply refrained to write; I sought…

Soul Mates

Originally posted on Reading into Oblivion:

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

Eat, Pray, Love

Indeed an incredibly beautiful experience. And painful at the same time. Or at least some of the time.

People say we should consider ourselves fortunate to have met a soul mate within our lifetime. It is an experience as intense and intoxicating as falling in love…

Wonderful World

Originally posted on 24 Beautiful Things:

There is just so many things to be thankful about and so many words of appreciation to be uttered to the people who come and go in your life. Yet, there is never enough time to thank everyone and to stop and just appreciate our wonderful world.

We go through life in a blur, a passing flurry and before we know it, our journey is halfway through or almost at an end. We have accomplished so much and yet at the same time, succeeded in nothing.

So stop for awhile, take a break.

Breathe in the air around you, take a time to appreciate life. Appreciate what you already have.

Mot!vation – all one needs

Originally posted on iLadoo - Exploring Thyself:

Motivation is all one needs. Be it at work or at home or at any other place. An employee seeks motivation in terms of rewards, salary compensation etc, a child seeks motivation while accomplishing small things. A person feels more energetic to accomplish a task if he is motivated. That is why there are lot of methods adopted by many organizations to keep their employees motivated so that they can make their employees work in an efficient manner. But how can we achieve motivation to accomplish our personal tasks?  Of course we need self-motivation for that. But you can not always remain motivated by yourself. Sometimes you need an external factor that reminds you of what you are, what you have accomplished so far, how did you achieve something etc. What can be better than keeping a bunch of positive quotes that you like and by reading which you feel…
