Passion

Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.

~Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society)

How hard can life be? Is there any way we could make life easier?

I honestly cannot answer those questions, but there’s something that could help us survive along this path we call life.

Passion.

What is passion and why am I writing about it?

Every one would have their own meaning for it, but passion for me, is that fierce emotion that has kept me going for a lot of time.

But does it really matter, in a world where money runs things and we run after money, passion could be forgotten.

You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.
~Robin Williams

There’s this small piece that I wrote, hope it helps!

I’ve been here for so long,
Writing about where we as humans belong.
For a while now, I’ve been singing this song,
Without knowing about the things around.
Naive, I may have been,
But, I was just following my dream.
Spreading the word of passion, spreading the word of love,
Many did try before me, but none of us want to evolve.
Does passion really matter?
I have been asking myself this for some time!
I don’t know why it took too long for me to answer,
For without it, my life here would really have been a disaster!

Everyday, I wake up and start my day,
I only see stories along the way.
I can see people, who are stuck with a routine,
I can see kids enjoying their first day as a teen.
I can see an old couple experiencing a movie, without getting offended,
And I can definitely see the capable ones staying silent.
Why is it, we are suffering this intolerable violence?
It could be physical, it could be mental, lord knows what.
May be, it could be because, we have stopped caring about art.
Can passion change humans?
I still remember, a kid from my school, who danced with only one hand.
His passion definitely brought mine back to life,
And only thing that did bother me was, how much did he have to strive!

I sit down and watch the news,
All I see is bunch of people screaming, just for some views.
Defaming anyone they feel is guilty,
While they just randomly, sip tea and coffee.
Deconstructing rhymes and lines just to find something that is not right,
Well, don’t you read the disclaimer, that it’s a work of fiction, and not every word should be right!
If they do love critiquing, how good would they be in writing?
Amazing I believe, for they can create a fake story, which can destroy a man’s history.
I look around and think,
In this situation, can passion really sustain?
If it doesn’t, the work of many generations would be in vain.
For I can assure that passion can bring the change,
For the voice of it, can reach ears and eyes of even those who aren’t in range.

A blind can feel art. A deaf can feel the music. A dumb can sing.
For there is nothing that can stop the passion within.
It’s like like the engine of the soul,
It’s the only thing that can help one reach their goal.
Getting up is never easy after they are down,
But when one has the passion,
They could easily win that crown.
But in reality, no one would want it,
For they know, they aren’t in for that.
I do say, passion can make every one a better person,
For it did teach me, the most important of lessons,
All you have to do in life, is keep going,
Even when you feel nothing has been moving.

How long has it been since I was away? Five months. That’s been a bit too long now, hasn’t it?

Let’s hope the next post doesn’t take this much time!

Do let me know your thoughts on Passion until then!

You know what music is? God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe, harmonic connection between all living beings, everywhere, even the stars.

Education vs. Passion! Why not Both!

Board exams are round the corner and so is the stress. One of the main reasons people take stress is because, they have been living for others. It’s time we realise this and start living for oneself.

People, these days, say they don’t get the feel to study and I keep wondering why does this happen, but to tell the truth, no one can motivate anyone to study.

Why is it so? Because, knowledge is infinite, and in fact the more you think you know, the lesser you actually know.

It is great to learn from every field, but to study, I don’t think that would be a good idea.

Coming back to the boards, we have limited our knowledge to the academic experiences but there are many things happening right now, that is not at all included in the academic system.

Why is it so? Because, this was designed many years ago for a common purpose and for common people, not for a particular person.

So, ask yourself now, what do you love? Space? Then, take a book on astronomy and read it. Because, your academic book, contains only a limited amount of information.

In reality, if you have love for something, you’ll stop at nothing to know more about that thing.

There’s this quote I read somewhere, “You are unique, just like everyone else.”

This might be funny, but it is the truth. You need to look inside to be what you want to be.

“One who looks outside, dreams. One who looks inside, awakes.” ~Carl Jung

As I mentioned earlier, I’m not here to ask you to do anything, I’m here to help you remind your true self.

“You must look within yourself to save yourself from your other self only then will your true self reveal itself.” ~Zuko

To those having their boards and to their parents, one can’t hug their marks to the grave. So smile, learn and lead. Because, there might be a dying artist in the kid who couldn’t score marks and to those guys who make a mess, only for missing a full score by a mark or two, just look through the eyes of a failure. Don’t freak out, keep calm, do what you love and please don’t compare.

Society, why do you bother about it? When you live in a place where you are offered freedom, why do you hesitate to do what you love? When you did something bad, you didn’t bother about them, then why do you think when you are doing something good? So, don’t blame them for your loss.

And finally, I conclude, I feel, people study only under two situations, either they live in a misconception or they want to achieve something.

Make sure, when you come here next time, make sure you are happy and ready to live out loud. Until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE and Believe and chase down your passion.
