Outside is a myth

These are the times of the virus

People are suffering day in, day out

Oop! Nothing to do with outside

Outside is a myth

It’s all day in, an hour by hour

And as it is all ‘in’ and ‘indoors’

Let’s try to go more ‘into’ ourselves

And this is how we’ll be able to fight this time

This new challenge is to keep ourselves calm and at peace

It cannot be done by focusing our energy on the external stuff

As it is beyond our control

This time around, we’ll have to go within

Learn about our habits and patterns

And thoughts and ideas

And try to accept them

Try to give a different narrative

To this entire external situation

And that is how we can be in peace

We can live in the moment

We can amor fati (love our fate)

We can momento mori (death is inevitable)

And we can stay calm and smiling

Maybe this virus lead us here indirectly

But now as we are here

Let’s try to make the best use of this

And come out with flying colors

And when things become better

We’ll definitely get chance to experience

The external factors again ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S.: This week’s song is How to be me by Ren & Chinchilla. I hope you’re taking proper care and trying to stay safe. Prayers and smiles to you all. Ping me, if you want to talk and share your experience. ‘Amor fati‘ and ‘Momento mori‘ are concepts of Stoicism.

Through the peephole..

I don’t want to be outside
Knowing you through a peephole
I want you to open the gates
And let me flood in
Know you wholly
I am done
Living life your way
Knowing the parts of you
You wanted me to see
Now either let me see you wholly
Know you wholly
Let full submission be a part of us
Or cover the peephole
And bid me farewell
Because peephole is
Not letting me live
And not letting me leave
So, help me
And choose something
As I always said to you
You have the reigns & chains
It’s time again for you
To choose from options
And get me or forget me
I am just a closed door away
With the smile you like to see
With the heart you like to love
With the words you like to hear
Hopefully with the love you like to have

P.S. : Today’s song is Outside by Staind. One of my favorite ๐Ÿ˜‰

Go for whatever makes you happy..

Go for whatever makes you happy ๐Ÿ™‚

For weekend is here

For your happiness is here

You just need to see

Sneak a peak

Not outside

But inside yourself

Explore, not the world

But explore yourself

Not to different places

But to different senses & feelings

Dream

And chase your dream

Because if you won’t

Who will?

I ain’t running after your dreams

I have my own

Make your dreams your own

Chase it

Fulfill it

Live it

And once you do that

You will be happy

Go for whatever makes you happy ๐Ÿ™‚
