Nothing Much

Nothing interesting to read in this post but still writing to share it with you all, actually, I was just wondering that what all there is I’m trying or perhaps, will try. There can be more things I could think of but I jotted down 4 points, and putting it up here.

Getting into reading:

I do write blog post sometimes, but I’m from those people who sometimes like to write but are not much into readings. I always wanted to get into reading, few months back I planned to at least read a book in a month which so far I’ve done successfully, 3 books in 3 months, let’s see how far it goes, haha!

Start to follow music again:

Around 4 years back I was into music, I used to follow some bands, and I was from one of those people who like to explore and listen to different kinds of music but time has changed and I almost stopped following music, and perhaps, the reason is my most of the time is consumed by my Job. But there’s always a space, doesn’t matter how tight schedule you have, you can get time for other things you would like to do. So I’m planning to follow music back again, let’s see whether this will be happening or not.

Backpack trip:

I’m into traveling, and of course I travel a lot, most of the time it’s due to my Job reasons and sometimes I plan out my own travels too, and there are few places I have been to which I want to revisit, one of them is Leh-Ladakh. Hoping to pay a visit to this place once again, I want to explore this place more, and yes, there are few more other places too those I want to revisit.

Control over thinking:

I do not lose my cool easily, and I try to be calm in those circumstances also where it is difficult to remain cool, but that doesn’t mean I never lose my temper. I believe, to make wise decision it is important that your mind has to be at peace and calm, and for that you have to know how to control your thoughts. I’m working on this; let’s see how far I can go.

Life Goes on Like This

Life is like a series of swimming lessons where we’re chucked into a deep ocean of infinite possibilities and from there we try to make out our way to a solid ground. In our efforts to reach on to a solid ground, we try to learn swim in which we either get thrashed out, or swim with or against the current of ocean, the ocean of challenges. We do this until we either find land to stand, or get drown in the ocean tied to a heavy anchor of negativity.

When we hit a solid ground after the struggle, the whole saga of this struggle would suddenly gets put into new perspective, and hence, the lesson is revealed; the lesson which could teach us a lot about life and things, and probably would change us from within. When we land on to a solid ground to stand then again from there we could suddenly get dumped back into the ocean for our next swimming lesson to learn, explore and experience more. This is how life goes on and we keep on learning, exploring and experiencing new things.

Evolution or Transformation

Throughout our whole life at some points we all might go through a form of evolution or transformation after which we learn to look at ourselves and at other things more critically and differently. Perhaps, we could go through this many times in our lifetime, and perhaps, that is the nature of the collective psyche which always tries to expand through the individual. There is endless possibilities, so much to know, so much to explore, and it could be possible that we are just scratching the surface in terms of what we know and understand about life and all the things around us. Our concept of reality could be an illusion, our concept of time and other things could be an illusion, the universe holds uncountable unimaginable mysteries within itself for us, and it’s just wonderful how we all thrive on this planet and experiencing things individually or collectively. We are all connected, we are all vibrations of vibrating energy, we are all made up of the same stuff.

What’s up?

I wish I could travel more to all the places which I want to see and explore, to all the places where I can gain new experiences and see the sun from different horizons, to all the beautiful places where I can feel the newness, serenity and freshness in the air but so far my professional life has taken over all the things. I’m not whining or anything like that but it’s just sometimes I wish to get into somewhere to experience new things, to explore more and roam like travelers. But as of now, all I can do is thinking of a time when I could get a few days to roam like a traveler, though I am continuously traveling since last few days and I do it frequently but all due to official reasons which actually means I hardly get any time to roam around the places where I go or stay up, haha!
Little tired right now and about to sleep but whatsoever I am doing well at my place and you all beautiful people keep rocking 🙂

To Travel is to Live

In a beautiful serene place climbing a mountain, a hike, sitting by side a waterfall, strolling on a meadow or a walk into woods will make you feel to be in bliss. To be in nature and surrounded by its beauty is amazingly refreshing. The fresh and gentle cool breeze on your face will blow its own freshness into you, tall trees and huge mountains around you will make you feel crazy in an awesome way, at some places you feel like above clouds or surrounded by clouds. Nature can offer us many epic and remembering moments only if we know how to be in nature, its tranquility will flow into us as sunshine flows on our planet only if we know how to be in nature.
I always find it amazing and tranquil to be in nature, surrounded by mountains and nature’s beauty. Standing on top of the mountain and looking at the world below makes me smile for some few reasons. I love to travel; it makes me feel so alive and refreshes my mind to the core. Somebody rightly said that to travel is to live and I wish to travel more doesn’t matter whether in hills or plains. I wish to experience, explore and learn more and I hope will.

At Peace With Yourself

The world as a whole can’t be in peace until the last person will learn to live at peace with himself/herself or just simply start to live in peace. It’s not about expecting from others to be at peace, it’s about being at peace with yourself. The soul of the world is nourished by the peace of each and every human; it all begins with individualistic peace, it’s about us not about them. Give a time to yourself and think about it, do you feel the peace or the chaos?

Let the energy of peace flow in the universe from within you, let the mind be at peace and let it grow. Sometimes, at some moments in life you might find it difficult to be at peace with yourself and that moment would be a test of your endurance and time to observe yourself to find the reasons and then to resolve them. I’m not any guru, not a saint, not any enlighten being, I’m just as you who is trying to be at peace with himself, who like to observe himself, who believe enlighten is an ever going process, who want to experience different skies and horizons, who want to explore the things around and within.

Much love to all ~ Vikas Sharma

I was just wondering… (repost)

Vikas Sharma - Change by actsJust publishing one of my old post again!

So here I go, have a good read:

I was just wondering how one can live his life to the fullest and this made me to put this blog in front of you all. There are many things which we can do to live our life to the fullest, why settle for anything less if you deserve something better? We all deserve the best and to get the best out of our life, we all should keep developing ourselves. Try to find pleasure in everything around you, it’s a beautiful world if you know there to look. Love every bit of your life to the fullest whether it is pleasant or not as it belongs to you, somehow you are the man who is responsible for creating all these moment around you! Always relish in the little moments because these little moments make your life complete.  Spending time with your family and friends, snuggling under warm covers on a rainy day, ice cream on a hot day, a kiss with your loved one, a walk by the park, gentle breeze on your face, sometimes getting drenched in the rain, quiet alone time, calling someone after a long time; feel all these little moments and if possible, try new things. What’s something you would normally not do? Get out of your comfort zone, try something different. It can be something simple like instantly planning to visit a place with your friends, taking a new route, any surprise to your friends or to your family members, trying a new food item which you have never tried, picking up a new interest or hobby. There are many things; you can try something bigger, like studying a different field, traveling to a place you have never thought to visit, exploring any unknown place. You know, there is a lot to explore; there is a lot to learn and experience.


As Steve Jobs said ~ “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”


                                     Life is too short to do anything else you don’t like. Sometimes, situation doesn’t favor us to do the things we love to do but never give up easily. Try to do the things you love because who knows maybe someday you will get what you want! We all have certain things in our life which gives us fulfillment and happiness; try to spend time on those things. Never stop learning from your surroundings, there is something to learn from everything you see, hear and experience. This includes everything like your mistakes, misconceptions or anything you did wrong in your past, i mean if any! Learn from all these mishaps and surely it will make you a better person than you were in past. I think, nobody is perfect and practice can’t make anybody perfect but practice is one of the things which make you better and better. So never stop practicing to become a better person. There is one more thing which can help you to become a better person and that is criticism. Try to learn from criticism and be open to criticism but don’t be affected by it. Criticism is meant to help you to be a better person. There are many things which can contribute to our betterment. And if there’s anything you don’t like about someone, say it to him in the face or otherwise, don’t say it at all. Backbiting is not a nice thing to do. We are human beings and there are lots of things which we face in our day to day life. Try to understand and feel another person’s feelings, try to be empathetic. If everyone only sees life from his own perspective, we’ll forever be close-minded and insular. See things from others’ shoes. Be a compassionate person, show compassion and kindness to everyone around you.


As said by Dalai Lama ~ “Compassion is something really worthwhile. It is not just a religious or spiritual subject, not a matter of ideology. It is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Compassion and love are precious things in life. They are not complicated: they are simple, but difficult to practice.”


                                   I must want to say this that without creativity and art earth would be just dull. Fall into any kind of art. Art can make our life more bearable, art is a way to grow our soul and art can teach you many things about the life. Creativity is one of those things which make us superior than other living beings on our planet. Creativity makes our life different. So focus on creation, think about what you can bring to the world, and try to create it! There will be lots of people who might appreciate your creativity and art. Bring changes in yourself, we live in a world where we have so many things to do, there are so many taboos in our society, there are many things we want to change in the world. As in simple words, be the change you want to see in the world. The only person you can change is yourself, stop expecting others to behave in a certain way. Rather than expecting that others around you change, focus on changing yourself.


                                Let the people who’ve touched you know of your gratitude towards them, so express gratitude. If you don’t tell them, they’ll never know; expressing gratitude makes a positive connection. Let loose and have fun, hanging out with your friends or family, sing at the top of your lungs, dance in the rain, watching movie with your beloved ones, sometimes breaking your limits, Getting into nature and feel it, smile more. Are you reading this with a straight face? Smile and have fun. It’s only through being the best we can live our life to the fullest and if life is hard then live it hard and enjoy it to the fullest. Love yourself; you are the person who will live with you for the rest of your whole life. Treasure and love yourself!  Love others; be grateful for all the people around you because they help you to grow. They enrich your life experience. At last I want to say, Love life, living a life is fascinating experience; and I believe our life should be composed of these five things: Live, Explore, Learn, Create and Share.

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!

We are all Explorers

I’m just trying to put my thoughts in front of you all on exploration, its importance and why do we explore? I’m not writing any fundamental things about exploration and what we should explore and how should we explore. I don’t think that telling this kind of things make any sense as this topic is individualistic and too broader to explain. I’m not even trying to convince anyone that we should explore the things around us or the things which are out of our reach. I’m just expressing my own views on this topic, that’s all! Some of you might agree with my thoughts fully, some of you might agree to some extent and some of you might not agree with me at all. In any case, if you wish then you can add your comments or thoughts after reading this post. So here I go!

It’s cool to be the first one to go where no one else has been before. Don’t you think that? HAHA! In my perspective, we are all explorer, including all other living beings. Exploration is much more than going to a place where no one else has been before. Exploration is a basic instinct to survive. Exploration is a way to deepen the mysteries, it’s a way to understand this world and the whole universe. Exploration provides purpose, seeks purpose and defines it. With exploration we become and we are always becoming. We are all explorers, we are all seekers. We keep on exploring things around us and sometimes we didn’t even notice that we are exploring something, something which is around us or maybe not. Our mind is always ready to explore the things, we just have to put our will and have to discover our area of interest. When you travel to a place where you haven’t been before then what comes in your mind? Don’t you want to explore that place? Don’t you want to find out what’s there in that place? Exploration is always followed by curiosity; curiosity is a trait of exploration. When we explore something it certainly raises some newer questions in our mind and to find the answers we have to explore more till we get our answers. The more we explore the more we learn and the more we gain knowledge.

Exploration has no limit. Some people like to explore their imagination by looking at all the angles of their imagination. Exploration can be of any type and it can be anywhere, like a person walking down a beautiful park full of people and then that person tries to explore that area automatically, that person tries to explore its every parts with some different perspective and gaining some knowledge from it. Some people tries to explore the world by taking photographs of the world around them. Exploration can be physical, it can be mental or it can be anything. Some people tries to explore themselves and some tries to explore the world by traveling to different places. For exploring anything, it doesn’t matter that our hands can reach that place or not, our eyes can see it or not and our bodies can travel there or not. We are always fascinated by the universe and therefore, we always try to explore it and it doesn’t matter whether we can reach out there or not, we will still be exploring it like always. Some people like to explore the laws of universe, physics and other. There is always something you can explore about the laws of universe and physics. Who knows, one day these laws might fall but for now, they are still what make our universe go round.

There is a special kind of pleasure we get from exploration. Going out to a some place and then returning back to the home but by some other route which is unknown to you and this will makes us feel good that there is another way to return back to the home and that’s what exploration can teach us. Exploration is the ability we have which let us to see beyond our horizon and beyond ourselves to ensure a future for our civilization. Exploration is in are thoughts, it’s in our behavior, it’s in the behavior of all the living beings. Our civilization will one day may live on Mars and beyond when we will run out of resources on Earth or maybe we will find some other alternative ways or things. So one have to explore to find new resources and areas which will help us to survive anywhere whether on this planet or on somewhere else. By exploration, one day we may find out the answers to some of the questions about our own origins. How did life begin on Earth? Is there life on any other planet? How did the universe originally form? How did the moon, our planet and the other originally form? Exploration has no limit, from microscopic to the macroscopic, from ocean to the universe, from bacteria to the space, all are in the field of exploration.
