Nothing is as clear as it looks. Human life and emotions are so complex that no matter how hard you try understanding it, you will only keep getting entangled and sucked into its own web. The best way to remain composed and stable is by being clear in your mind from the start to finish. Over-thinking is like an overflowing dam that can lead to a flood of unwanted thoughts. Just cut the crap around you and remain focused on your priorities in life, be it relationships, passion, work or anything else for that matter. The reality is that you cannot resolve every complex situation in life, but you can at least choose the problems you really want to resolve and deal with them one at a time with clarity.
Waqt ke panno pe bikhre the kuch lavzo ke lamhe
Kuch ne nagmo ka rukh liya
Kuch kashtiyo me beh gaye
Kuch yuhi gum ho gaye
Kisi Aur Waqt ke Panno me
Tried writing a hindi/urdu shayari. Hope You enjoy reading it 🙂
Roz marre ko mar mar ke jeena
Jaise Patte jo dhale shyam ki tarah
Behte pani ka rukh kisne dekha
Bade chalo bahaar ki tarah
Andar ki aawaz dhunde ek zehra
Sehma sa ghut raha hai kahin
Duniya se kya lena dena
Tu Kayaro ka Kafil toh nahi?
Woh ras hee kya jo raseela na ho
Woh baat thee kya jo binkahi ho
Kati patang bhi Udaa tha kabhi
Aasma ko Aadab kahan tha kabhi!
Philosophy is not about getting philosophical. Today I would like to share my strange thoughts on why on earth we get so stressed up, trying to understand what life is all about, find the so called “truth of life”.
Let’s think with some logic here. The maximum a human being can survive is for 100 years. But these days you can take out 20 years from that and make it 80. In those 80 years, take out 20 which we all invest in ideally enjoying childhood and getting educated. After that we slowly start getting into a rut really.
We get stressed out about relationships that are not really working for you. Hang on, if they have to work, they will, if they don’t, they won’t. Give it your best shot and have no regrets. No point in pushing too hard or forcing someone to fall for you by manipulating them by being fake, if they start liking you that way then they are liking the fake side of you, not the real you. There are some relationships like the mother-child one, father-child one, sibling-love, buddy-love, apart from your girlfriend-boyfriend love that will mostly never fail or die down. Feel good and lucky about that.
Then we start chasing something we don’t have, money, career, dreams etc. Slow down baby, having a dream, being passionate is good. It gives you direction; you get up every morning for a reason then. But there’s a limit to that too. At what cost are you running around so much for? Are you like starving to death or something? If yes, then you probably have to pull your socks up a bit and keep running till you are like okay to live a normal life. But, if you have most of the basics that you need to live an okay life, then why can’t you be a bit more content? What you are working towards will happen when the right time comes, but not before that. Also keep trying with a thought that nothing really is going to happen, this will take out violence from you when you are following your passion. Enjoy your journey rather than worrying if you will reach the destination or not.
I myself was going through a phase in life that built frustration and anger within me, as things were moving too slowly or were not really moving at all! But then I thought, is it worth getting so stressed about these things? No! Not at all! I realised that there is no meaning to life. There is no real truth you need to find. Just do something that keeps you happy more or less, not something that stresses you out. The reason why we are all here for is to live. Simply.
