Under The Benighted Sky

Expand The Horizon

Under the benighted sky, I used to feel my thoughts blending making roar,

All thoughts within my mind had waged mutual consistent war

Mystify to identify what was delusion and what was real,

Causes of delusions were unclear

Steadily time kept on changing with seasons unending,

My world was spinning empty days and nothing were there to be claimed

Then I dived into an ocean of hopefulness between perplex waves to find out my aim,

Here I stand up holding an hourglass of eternity that trickles sand endlessly,

Becoming more self-conscious, letting myself to be with more stable emotions,

Chasing dreams, my ambitions go far beyond the horizons,

Now a vision dropped in, standing on the sands of time but destination still to be claimed,

As the sun vanishes and the moon gear up to take on the skies,

With a gaze to the calm eternal sky with twinkling stars…

Under The Benighted Sky

Under the benighted sky, I used to feel my thoughts blending making roar,

All thoughts within my mind had waged mutual consistent war

Mystify to identify what was delusion and what was real,

Causes of delusions were unclear

Steadily time kept on changing with seasons unending,

My world was spinning empty days and nothing were there to be claimed

Then I dived into an ocean of hopefulness between perplex waves to find out my aim,

Here I stand up holding an hourglass of eternity that trickles sand endlessly,

Becoming more self-conscious, letting myself to be with more stable emotions,

Chasing dreams, my ambitions go far beyond the horizons,

Now a vision dropped in, standing on the sands of time but destination still to be claimed,

As the sun vanishes and the moon gear up to take on the skies,

With a gaze to the calm eternal sky with twinkling stars my all fret flies,

Yes, I’m at peace in this kingdom of so much chaos,

As now everything unclear seems like has fallen asleep,

But a realm of myriad thoughts within my mind is awake with its peaks and streams,

As destination yet to be claimed in this pursuit to unfold all the maze of my dreams.

No Glory Comes Without Turmoil

Hey! Just sharing some random thoughts with you all, if you wish to read then here you go:

Some of the time in some circumstances our biggest barrier is we ourselves as in some situations we form barrier in our minds without giving a deserving fight. No matter who we are, what we’ve done and how successful we may have been in the past, we always find ourselves in a place defined by our own boundaries; that is our current comfort zone.

We may have fought hard in the past to reach the comfort zone we’re at today and for that very well done! However deep down, is that it? Have we reached our destination for life or are we gonna keep journeying on, keep climbing higher, can we take it to the next level? What are our limits? I think there’s only one way to find it out and that’s to keep facing our fears. We all have them, I definitely do and it’s behind those walls that potential dreams lie. Is it risky? What if we get failed? Could we get hurt? Could it challenge our very existence and grind us to the inner core of our souls? Oh hell yes! No glory comes without turmoil.

So what’s the point of this message? Anything we’re disappointed about – we have nobody to blame but ourselves. All of us are at some road-block, it may be new or it may have been there for years. We may have failed multiple times trying to break through. I do believe the key is perseverance and never giving up, no matter how long it takes.

If you’re happy where you are then power to you. We’re all in this together, if we can get our minds off blaming and criticizing whatever the hell it is that we blame – at least for a moment, take responsibility and accept our fears, charge up and believe in ourselves at least for a moment, and then, this message has done its job. As much as I write this message for others, it’s also a message to me.

Cheers,

Breathe In, Breathe Out

Vikas Sharma - Expand The Horizon(Breathe in, Breathe out) Are you going through some problematic things and wondering how to get your life back on tracks? I think it all depends on us how to get our life back on tracks. Ups and down are part of life, I’ve seen ups and down in my life and we all go through it, don’t we? Sometimes, things are inevitable, shit happens and I know it can be difficult to believe sometimes but everything happens for a reason, there is always something behind everything. The reasons which slide you out of tracks can be anything; sometimes we don’t realize why the things are getting worse, or why the things are not going smooth. Sometimes, you feel that you’re trudging a path and you don’t have any idea where are you heading. Remember, the only person who can understand your deepest, actual and all problems, or situations is “You”. It’s you who have to identify your things, why something is happening to you and then try to solve it.

Take your time and relax yourself then try to figure out why things are happening like this? Are you wondering what to do as there are too many ideas and you can’t make decision on one, or are you wondering what to do as you don’t have any single idea to work on? Are you confused, overwhelmed, or lost, and you don’t know what to do? Do you have many dreams and don’t know how to turn them into reality? Are you a huge procrastinator, or too lazy to act on your plans? Are you confused about your goals, dreams and passions? Do you feel like you have no idea what you’re going to do with your life? Do you feel like you’re devastated? Do you feel like your world is tumbling down around you and nothing seems to be staying at its rightful place? Are you afraid of what people will say about you? Are you controlled by negativity which is deep-rooted in your psyche because of past failures, or old wounds? Are you sad and have no real friends in life to share your things? Do you want to change everything about yourself, but there are so many things wrong in your life and you don’t know where to begin? Do you feel like you have no social life? Do you feel there is no one to motivate and support you? Sometimes, do you feel like crying out loud? Do you fear the failure before even beginning things? Sometimes, do you think “Why me, why!”?

There are many more questions, or problematic things. There are reasons behind everything and if something is going wrong then we should try to discover the reason behind it, and then solve it with all the efforts if possible. Of course, it doesn’t take an hour to get your life back on tracks but if we try to recognize problems and then searching the solutions to solve it can help a lot. Sometimes there are things which can’t be fixed after trying all efforts, in that case just leave it behind and move on. We all have to change ourselves for better life and living, and if we want to change our life and living then we have to change our thinking and we have to do the things we are not doing, or doing the same things in a different manner. If you feel like there is nobody to support or motivate you, then just stand against the mirror and look at yourself, it’s “You” the only person who knows what actually you need and what’s your real potential, you can achieve your goals, don’t worry much about support; just be open for it if you get it from anyone, from anywhere. Never let people put you down rather try to encourage people around you as when you encourage someone it adds positivity in your life too and it doesn’t really matters whether the people really affected with your encouragement stuff or not, it still adds positivity in your life. Never have an attitude like “I don’t give a shit to anything”. There are things we have to take care of, don’t you think that? Remember, we are what we make of ourselves, so don’t get affected by others wrong judgmental behaviors, living the life you want will bring happiness to you and don’t be afraid of failure. Just believe in yourself and there’s no need to be afraid of failure. If you don’t succeed then try again, just keep trying on your things. Sometimes, it takes a lot of investment of time and energy to get things done.

I believe in creating beauty in everything. We should try to make something beautiful out of every bad situation, we can do it, it’s not impossible just a little or more difficult. If you can, then be a part of any kind of any activity, it can help to release the energy which you have kept inside unused; and try to be a stress less as much as you can. Stress can affect our productivity levels as a stressed mind can’t work up to its actual potential, and it can distort our thinking too. I know it’s not easy to keep ourselves totally isolated or away from mental stress but we can try to keep ourselves stress free as much as possible. Try to learn from other people, ask someone you admire how they got where they are today, and ask your elder or anyone whom you believe. Listening and learning about how they faced their problems or difficulties throughout their life, and maintained grace throughout it all can help us knowing about the things more, it can help us in our personal endeavors too.

Sometimes, we all need to do is just relax and take a break; let yourself recharge, breathe in, breathe out, feed yourself some positivity and keep your head up. Don’t give up easily, identify your strengths and new possibilities, be open to new impressions, and broader your vision as problems can’t be solved with too narrow vision. Restore your perspective in order that you can see more clearly and don’t always stick to routines. It doesn’t matter what order you do the things when you know what you need to do or what you have to do on any given day. Sometimes it’s good to do things which are not part of your routine, sometimes it’s good to get out of daily routines and schedules. So have fun and be crazy sometimes, do the things which draw a smile on your face. Sometimes, we fail to see that what’s needed is in front of our eyes and therefore, sometimes it’s good to turn down the noise and listen to what’s arising from your deepest self. We all are into this journey of life and we slip and slide on our way. What keeps us going is the music, music of the life, music of the universe. Keep rhyming yourself with the music of the universe.

One of the reasons for chaos in the world is we divide ourselves on the base of some things and forget that we are humans first. There is no separation, and hence awakening is certainly due. Try to remove elements of negativity from your life, or things you don’t want to do, or just try to convert negativity into something beautiful. Clean your house from top to bottom and throw away anything unnecessary or out-dated, always keep a free space for new things by removing unnecessary and out-dated things. Learn from past mistakes. Usually, we make a lot of mistakes during our lifetime. Just keep learning from your mistakes, gain wisdom and knowledge from it, and avoid its repetition. Just don’t let your past mishaps to affect your present, and it’s not bad to release your emotions. There is always a healthy and unhealthy side to every emotion. We were taught that adults are not supposed to cry. No one can decide who can cry or who can’t just on the base of age. Sometimes, it’s good to just sit down and have a good hard cry. This is healthy for everyone, and it can make us feel lighter. Moreover, we are human beings with feelings and emotions, so it’s alright to cry out loud. Always have confidence in yourself; speak and act with confidence. Are you able to stand by what you do and say? If not, it may be time to re-examine your own things, or words.

Don’t put off difficult conversations, deal with such problems mindfully. Talk to strangers, reconnect with old friends and with relatives who live far away, and with the people you miss. Go out into the Nature. Nature has an ability to help calm our mind; it gives us new perspective, and clears our thoughts. Take a walk in the woods, climb a mountain, or just get into the nature and do some trekking, hiking, camping at any level of difficulty; it gives a sense of pride, accomplishment and relaxation. Take up a new interest or hobby; you never know where a simple interest or hobby can lead you in life. So, it’s always good to spend some time on the activities you like, so whenever possible try to spend some time on the activities you enjoy such as dancing, biking, playing any music instrument, singing, drawing, writing, photography, or anything you like. Go to a beach where you can sit, or walk on its shore and listen to the waves crashing against the shore, get up and dance to one of your favorite tunes, listen to your favorite music, exercise regularly and eat well, there are many things which can refresh your mind and energy.

Most of us has experienced the moment when we say “Yes” to something, when we know it’s not right for us but still we do it. As soon as say yes, we hear a voice that screams “No, No!” inside us but somehow another part of us kicks in and our mind overrules the wisdom of our body and we find ourselves on a path we never intended. If ever you find yourself in such a situation then remember the only person who knows you took a wrong turn is “You” and only you can decide when to get back on your tracks and how. Admit as quickly as possible, you made a choice that led you to the wrong path and after that decide how you’re going to get back on track. It’s not the end until you give up and it’s good to talk about your problems with your close friends, or with your family, or with any one whom you can trust and believe as this can help you to feel lighter. We all face some challenges in our life and it’s with us how to reply to these challenges. Sometimes, it seems like every single thing is going wrong and sometimes, you wonder why everybody else gets some help and you can’t seem to get any. Sometimes, some things are out of our control, sometimes you don’t get the desired results, sometimes you miss the opportunity of something good, friends move, thousands of people apply for the same job, relationships end, people lies and cheats, and more, and more, and more. Remember, shit happens and all these things happen to many other people every day in this whole world, you’re not alone. It’s up to you; get back on tracks with life. Sometimes, it can take time, and it can be difficult but not impossible.

It’s Not Easy, But Neither Impossible

Do you think life is short? Is it really short? I mean, how can it be short? It is not short; it is the longest activity of a human. Life is not short to spend on following our goals and ambitions but life is short to not follow our goals and ambitions. Life is short to spend on doing the things we don’t want to do and of course, life is short to hate and fight. Sometimes we get confused, or situation doesn’t let us do the things we want to do but that doesn’t mean we have to give up our goals and ambitions without trying our level best. Life is like a ride, a ride on an uneven path. Sometimes the path seems full of pits and hurdles, and sometimes the path is all smooth, flat and leveled. So take risks when you know can and do the things you want to do.

Spread a little love on the path you are treading and dream a dream. The world is bigger than our space and our actions have consequences, sometimes we didn’t realize it but we all contribute to our world in some way. We all are part of it and separation is merely an illusion. At the time, when we become aware with our inner self then we realize we don’t need everything we think we need. We realize there is a lot more we can do and we can achieve. We realize living up to society’s standards is not a life, living up a life on the rules or instructions of a society is not a life. We are all humans and we don’t deserve to be treated like chess pawns. So try to listen your intuition, have some goals and ambitions, be a learner and be a little crazy sometimes, have fun and smile more, and remember we can achieve our goals and ambitions by working hard and following our conscience. Let’s try to live our life to the fullest and follow our goals, dreams and ambitions, that’s where true happiness is. I know it’s not easy, but neither impossible.

Watch Me Flying High Above The Cliffs

Watch me flying high above the cliffs and live your life with a smile on your face.

Well again a few words I would like to share with all of you and this time it’s on suffering, the mental suffering. It’s just what I think about mental suffering and personally this post is not intended for anyone in any sense as these are just views, nothing more than that. If you want to read it then go ahead and in any case if you wish then you can add your comments or thoughts after reading this post.

Memories are wonderful if we don’t get stuck in the past. Dreams are always good if we don’t get trapped up in the web of dream world. Expectations makes us feel lighter if we don’t rely much on them. Without memories, without dreams and without expectations, we will be as good as dead. If we get stuck in the past with memories, if we get trapped in the dream world, if we mostly reply on expectations then there is always a very strong chance that we’ll encounter with suffering. Having desires and dreams are always good, it makes us feel alive, it makes us excited about the life, it makes us doing something to fulfill them but making a hills of desires and dreams of which we don’t even have any idea or we don’t even know where and how to climb up and how to get up on it, can lead to suffering. Relying on exceptions at most of time is like becoming a slave of hopes and in other way it can lead to suffering. Getting stuck in the past with memories will never let you to live your present. Life is tough and it is supposed to be like that as most of the time easy and simple things are ignored or low valued by the world.

Now, if someone is suffering what does that mean? It means something has went wrong with that person, with its past, desires, dreams or expectations. No one suffers by a chance, there is always something behind it. We are humans, things can go wrong, things can get messed up and sometimes life may become unbearable and directionless. If you ever reach at this point in your life, just sit at a place where you feel comfortable and just try to enlighten yourself with your own consciousness. You have brain in your head and there is always something to learn from everything you are facing and I believe there is a lot a person can learn when s/he suffers, learn from it then overcome it. You just have to catch up the wisdom which is there in the suffering and then move away from it with a better person than you used to be in the past, the things you learn while you suffer, keep them in your mind and heart; that wisdom will be your best guide through out the life. Sometimes, it’s the suffering which gives a birth to something beautiful and powerful things, we just have to realize that we are the owner of our life, we are the fire which can blow up the hurdles, we have the power to shout out loud; so stand up against the mirror and just say it to yourself – watch me soaring and watch me flying high above the cliffs.

A Mysterious Man!

A mysterious man questions.

I was bit tired and bit restless,
looked up into the mirror
and my face tells it all.
Just when I was about to go to the bed
suddenly a man appeared,
a mysterious man appeared in the mirror.
With a smile on his face he called my name.
What the hell! I was dazed,
I rubbed my eyes
and looked again into the mirror,
the man was still in the mirror
with that smile on his face.
Anxiously I asked,
what do you want Mr. Illusion?
Don’t make me think critically,
I know you can deceive humans dramatically
Damn! I couldn’t believe as I heard his voice,
he asked with his soothing voice;
Can you lead me to a place where I can find all the answers to all my questions?
Can you lead me to a place where complexity doesn’t exist and everything is simple?
Can you lead me to a place where there is no race and people have nothing to chase?
Without a second thought I replied,
I have a few questions for you too!
How will one feel the urge to explore if everything is known and there is no questions?
How will one value the life and all the things if everything will be easy and simple?
What’s the point of running alone?
What’s the point of having desires and dreams if you can’t chase them down?
Then suddenly my morning alarm rings up
and I woke up from a deep dreamy sleep,
realizing it was the dream,
one of those funny absurd dream!

Remember – It All Start With Thoughts

Dreams, Imaginations and Ideas; I believe in all these things and the more I live the more I understand the value of these immaterial things. Just think if we can’t live our dreams then what’s the point of our life? Simply to survive? I want more than survival. I want to actually wake up and be excited about my life. In this post I’m writing some of my thoughts on dreams, imagination and on ideas and how to convert them into physical reality. The difference between the physical reality and dreams or imaginations or ideas can be filled up by the efforts, efforts to convert them into the physical reality. Dreams, Imaginations, Ideas; all these are just the seeds which doesn’t really exist in the material world unless we put some efforts to make them a well-grown fruitful tree. In my point of view, dreams, imaginations and ideas, these all are interconnected. All these are in our mind unless we act upon them and if we really want them to be real then we must make our mind believe that it can do anything if we put all the efforts in the right direction. We just have to believe in our dreams, in our imaginations and in our ideas and if there was ever a moment to follow your heart and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. So start acting as soon as you feel you have something inside your head. Sometimes, if you ever feel like a directionless in the life then just try to follow your intuition, it’s the best thing to follow your intuition and make a decision and then find a new direction and then keep moving on.

It’s always better to work in a group than alone. So whenever you find someone who matches up with your things then just patch up with that person. Working together can make a big difference in all of our lives. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. So never hesitate to try new things if you don’t like the output of your efforts; who knows one day you may get what you dreamed of. It’s somewhat true, life is not easy especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile like achieving your dreams; as achieving dreams can mean a lot of work and efforts and sometimes, disappointment and frustration too. It requires a lot of energy and resources. So don’t give up easily and just keep exploiting the resources around you. Moreover, it’s not about having the right resources; it’s about exploiting the resources you do have access to. The best thing you can do is do the best with what is in front of you with the resources you do have access to.

I’m learner and I’ll be learner till the end. Right now there’s a lot I don’t know and I’ll always be ready to learn all the things I don’t know. No matter how smart you are or how much you learn there will always be more to learn. Hiding from what you don’t know will bury you right beside your dreams and ideas. So embrace the things you don’t understand and study them. Achieving this understanding is what living your life is all about and when you receive negative feedback, just remember, it doesn’t matter how many people don’t get it, it matters how many do. There can be few who may incessantly suggest that the idea or dream as a whole is utterly ridiculous. Don’t get disappointed by such things, just keep working to prove yourself, to achieve your destination. As I’ve said before, if there was ever a moment to follow your heart and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. So when you feel you have something in your head then just go for it and put your all efforts to make it real! Remember, in pursuit of your dreams never forget to live your life; just do whatever you like and live your life to the fullest and keep exploring yourself and the world. 🙂

I was just thinking…

I was just thinking, what if someday you look back and think why you stopped walking on that path and realizing you could have done it exceptionally good or getting a feeling like you could have been recognized for your courage, for your creation or for your work if you didn’t have stopped doing that particular thing without giving it a deserving fight till the end. I was just thinking about all these things and this led me to write this post.

All I think is that if you’re good in something then don’t keep that thing inside you, take it out and share it. Let the world know that you’ve something, something which belongs to you, something which is your creation or something which is beautiful in all the way. So, if you’re planning to try something or planning to work on something, something which you want to do or which you like to do then try it all the way, from top to the bottom, from starting to the end. Try each bit of that thing, go through the entire thing, look at every corner of it, search for the hidden things in it, go beyond the illusions, scratch the concepts and do it the way you like. If you’re happy with it and if it brings satisfaction to you then it’s really worth to do. There are billions of people on our planet and lots of them are going through the same phase as you’re going through. So, think out of the box and don’t get distracted by obstacles. Sometimes, you may feel like losing your mind but that’s just a phase and it will not last for a long time if you are on a right lane.

Sometimes, getting things done could mean freezing on an unknown land, it could mean wondering in the darkness, it could mean not eating on time for some weeks, it could mean working alone, it could mean disappointments, it could mean mockery, it could mean feeling lost, it could mean thinking against the thinking of majority, it could mean facing odds and evens. So, instead of getting lost in the feeling of disappointments, just think that all these odd things which are coming in your way are a test of your endurance. If you really want to do it, then despite all the rejection in the worst, you will do it and it will be better than anything else you can imagine. It’s not easy to get what we dreamed of, there lies a fight which we have to do. I think if you’re fighting a battle of your dreams with a right side of the force then definitely that battle is worth to fight. Moreover, it’s my conception and I don’t know how much you’ll agree with me in all these things but I believe there lies a fight which has to be won by someone, there lies a struggle which is worth to do if you are on a right track, there lies a mountain which has to be moved by someone to find out the treasure behind it 🙂

Let out your emotions flow…

Sometimes, when you try to be an extra nice, you get screwed up…

If you are hiding your emotions and feelings just to keep someone else happy, it’s just not worth it…!!

Be yourself and then do whatever you want to do…

If you are not being yourself completely then you are just wasting yourself…!!

Remember, you have one life to live…

Go ahead with your emotions, dreams, feelings and do believe in love and peace…

Let out your emotions flow and practice your feelings no matter what the consequences are…!!
