Something to think about III

“Life could be a lot worse, you know?” – This we’ve heard countless times and I’d like to think that the majority of us have now reached a point where the next time we hear that we do one of three things:
Laugh it off and agree. Change topic immediately. Or (my personal favourite) use the highest degree of profanity simply to ask the speaker to make themselves scarce.
What we don’t realize is, “Life could be a lot better too.”
I’m not going to ask you to stop using drugs. I’m not going to ask you to look at the bright side, ‘cause maybe you don’t have one or your vision’s too blurred to see anything else. What I am going to ask you to do is laugh it off. Smile even if you don’t want to. Enjoy the day even if all you want to do is cry. Let go of yourself simply because you can. Put yourself right on top on that list of people you care about. Forget everything and fake being happy.
I could give you numbers and tell you that “case studies have shown that yada yada yada…” But think about it. Eventually, any lie repeated countless number of times, becomes the truth. It’s very convenient for us to fall down, that’s what gets us attention and eventually care and comfort in one form or another. But what is even more convenient, is that we can trick our own minds into believing that something is true. So go ahead and trick yourself into believing you’re happy.


It’s very easy to feel sad, and achieving a state of even 50% happiness seems like a herculean task. To be able to feel generally happy without any particular reason is something I’ve always wanted to be able to do, and boy am I envious of the people who can manage to do that. Tomorrow though, you need to wake up smiling, walk in and out of the house smiling and go to school smiling, for the sake your friends and more importantly your family.

Change

So it's been awhile since I've written one of these, but seeing as I have too much time to spare, I thought of sharing another of  my insightful insights that so many of the 3 of you love to read. At this point I am just rambling on for the introducing for this article, so here goes.
"The present has all the contingency of the past and is every bit as malleable. Everything in our environment is up for development. The majority of what exists is arbitrary; not inevitable nor right, it is simply the result of muddle and happenstance. The way we enter the world carries with it an inherent bias towards the idea that change is finished, and history already been settled."

So we're constantly told why things are the way they are and are asked to accept them, no questions asked.  As I have previously said in another post, we have been granted free will, the greatest power of them all. Thus we're allowed to choose from a plethora of paths and people and no one can te…

The Murder

I wrote this is the month of August 2015, that one academic year I didn't write anything. This was cooked up after a bad dream and written on the back of one of the debate mark-sheets. One also referred to it as a little extreme for the act of killing a mosquito.  

2 years I lived in shame,
Now I've found who's to blame.

She left me torn, 
I was forlorn.
She left me a changed man,
No more would my mind expand.

The cries of anguish I still remember,
The pain still fresh in my mind,
Fate wasn't kind that time,
But I did endure for what seemed like forever.

The first time I met her,
She seemed like an angel.
The last time I saw her,
She left as the devil.

The thought of her, an angel or a demon?
Tears my mind to two.
Oh it were as treason,
To believe her eyes still are blue.

The vamp made me suffer,
I held back no more.
Twas the sound of the singing lark,
That did spark my anger.

I reached out grabbing her,
She let out a gasp of surprise.
I snapped her neck in two,
It was done. I was through.

Something to think about.

I was told many a times, that I could be what I wanted to be. I had been given the power of free will. The power that drives humanity. But, what is it that keeps us going? There's a fine line between the two. What is that thing we are trying to achieve? What is our end result? I seem to have stumbled upon the answer - Happiness. Happiness is a very diverse feeling. Love and joy come under the same category and for some before us, war and violence do too. Everyone on this planet is capable of feeling it. The thing is, some of 'us' (I use that term very loosely) don't want to or just refuse to even try. Look at a dog's life. What is the world to it? He/she has no end purpose. It does it's best to enjoy every moment it has on this planet, and makes sure you do to (or at least, does his/her level best).

I had gone to a friend's party and as usual, when the gang is together, the gang fools around a lot. We decided to go for a walk at 2 am, which is when all th…
