May there be no pain,
No malaise, No hate,
May there be no vice,
No gloom, No spate,

Tell them to rejoice,
Every moment of pain,
Every dice on the board,
Every drop of rain,

And to desire let us say,
You may not now stay,
Like clouds in autumn,
You could now drift away,

'Cause in life we've learnt,
This lesson a hard way,
To want and demand,
Means to lose everyday,

So behold all claims,
Of right and might,
Which take the day light,
Out of sight,

And lets hold on,
To the pilllars of the dome,
That covers us ever,
And leads us back Home..

The Theory of Simplistic Approach

Life gives you so many choices. Either you select the choices or you let life make a choice for you. Either ways, you decide the course of your life; either actively or passively. The course of action that follows is a sum total of the efforts and choices made by you and the consequence of your ability to utilize your time, talent and toil.

This of course means that you are a part of a master plan set my Someone, with your own set of responsibilities, choices and perception. This still doesn't make you a slave of the so called Destiny. When people say they made choices in life and became successful, Someone was always there to give them the choices. When people say that they submitted to the Destiny, it was their choice to do so.

Eventually, we come to realise at times that we are in a flustered state with nowhere to go. Complications start taking a toll of your rational thinking and you find yourself in a vicious circle with nowhere to go. You want to hold on. You want to set lose. You want to be free. You want captivation. It's all Oxymoronic, it's Paradoxical.

You simply want to escape and subconsciously pray for a saviour to come and rescue you but hopes are low. You would wish you were never stuck up in such a situation and look for the one thing, which if reversed could lead you back to a comfortable cruising life.

But wait... Hold on... Did you just realize that you walked into a trap? Or did you just miss on the Great Overpowering Existence of the Master Plan? Standing by my statement that their does exist a Plan, a Role for all of us, isn't it still evident that we actually and literally walked into it?

If you walked into it, you made a choice. If you made a choice, you had reasons for doing so. If you had reasons for doing so, you either still relate to those reasons or have simply stopped associating with them.

In either cases, situation is reversible. Just stop thinking about the reason if you have stopped associating to it. In case you still respect the reason, or the cause, soulfully and honestly follow in without regrets and your path will be re-illuminated.

This is the Theory of Simplistic Approach, as I call it, or Simplicism. It has helped me through thick and thin. Lets hope it lights a few more paths.

The Light at the End of the Tunnel


Life has been hectic for me. Lot of stress, too much of rush, umpteen number of obstacles and myriads of nerve jamming "to-dos". All in all, recent times haven't been so very smooth. But then who ever has had a life with no struggle and hassle? Isn't this the story of almost all of us?

Well, keeping the generalization part out of it for now, let's look at the bigger picture. As kids, we had exams, which were supposed to be the most excruciating experiences and the only relief was the holidays which followed them!! Later came the boards, which had their own trauma. But then they assured us of a college life that would be fun and frolic. Eventually in college, there were those hysteric moments of extravagance, emotions and ebullience. But they promised a later life of peace, solace and abundance if you worked hard to make a Great Career.

But eventually you come to find that even while working, earning and filling the bank accounts with the Green paper, alias Vitamin M, you still couldn't reach the state of solace you wanted. You write it off for post-retirement life and promise yourself an early retirement full of foreign holidays and carefree outbacks.

But would that ever come? Or is it a similar dangling carrot which has been laid for the endless bounty run towards something you will never achieve? Isn't life supposed to reward you for doing so much of hardwork and taking up all the herculean tasks in the prior stages of life? Or is it simply unjust to everybody?

It is said that There is Light at the End of the Tunnel, but isn't it quite evident that the Light is emanating from a lamp-post leading to another Tunnel? While running behind the so called rewards to be received after sets of stressful tasks, we tend to forget just one thing. The most potent runs often lead to Mirages. Just like the Great Gold Rush of the 20th century.

So.. Is there any existing rationale which explains this rush, this endless marathon which seems pointless when you just cant reach the finish line and this failure to reach the final echelons? Well, there definitely is a justification for everything.

Maybe He, who wrote all this for us, wanted us to take life as it comes, and enjoy all the moments in present without bothering about the future to come. Maybe He told us something in the cipher and we deciphered in a modified format. Maybe that was His Master Plan for us.

Whatever it might be, eventualy you have to get back to the endless race expecting some placating rewards, which might never come.

With all due regards to His Master Plan, at least I am loving it!!
