A peep into my heart

The whole idea of this, is not about me.
But for the curios, an entry into the maternal world does wonders to a woman. Its never an “Aboue Me”. Its always “About Us”. Now, Daddy dearest to my wonderful son, this “us” includes you too.

So, well, coming to the part of the real me, I love to read, to write and to spend time with my 3 year old. Life is really beautiful. Yes, there are these trials and tribulations, every day hurdles, frutrations, but then, we also have these largely interesting and happy times in this life. Yes, there is also time to stoop and smell the flowers, if you wish to do it.

But then like Robert Frost said, I have miles to go before I sleep too.

So, I am this traveller who loves her journey through time and space; who takes along her loved ones or atleast tries to; in this interesting path towards infinity.

Well, I tried my best! And I ll keep updating this as and when I get these philosohphic glimpses about myself within me 🙂

Glimpse # 2:

Everyone is a genius. But the manifestation of her/his brilliance happens only when he discovers what her/his forte is.

I believe mine is literature – the beautiful words of the English language. Nothing else can ever be more fascinating, except maybe the simplicity of the tranquil heart. Being recognized as a genius by other geniuses is perhaps the last step in this journey of literary pursuit because a genius is always a half a century early in this world, someone said.

So, I read somewhere that Christ said, “Don’t hide thy lamp under a bushel”. I love to read and write, so probably, exposing my lamp sooner to my brethren makes sense.

My random recordings seem to make little sense for now. But like all good things to come, it will soon start contouring and materialize into something awesome.

Genies inside the bottles are released sooner or later. They are never known to stay there forever. Maybe the fairy-tales make them stay there for longer (like, some genies are known to stay inside the lamp/bottle for a couple of thousand years) than we can imagine.

But then eventually all genies come out and show their magic.

And magic is not cheating; it is when the mind fails to perceive the reason 🙂

Watch out for Glimpse # 3 😉

Glimpse # 3:
Sometimes I don’t realize why I yaket-yak-yak. It is not as if I am proclaiming to be a genius or a genie 😉
When I read that today, it looks as if I claim to be so. But I do not. 🙂
So what do I claim to be?
These days, I do not know. I do not “be” perhaps.
Until next time, when I am willing to date the next entry, adios!

    Hey!! Very nicely written! Loaded with a lot of gyan? 😉 Loved a lot of lines like ” And magic is not cheating; it is when the mind fails to perceive the reason ” and also “Everyone is a genius. But the manifestation of her/his brilliance happens only when he discovers what her/his forte is.”

    Good post! Hoping your inner genius will be out soon as something awesome! Rock on!

    Thanks Yuv 🙂
    Everyone’s gyan has such moments when it decides to reveal itself… 😉

    Hmm.. so u took a day off yesterday and did some soul searching ! 🙂 .. this is a good post .. definitely not a hallucination :).. so i guess it might not be long before we say “Oh the alchemist? we know her very well” in our future conversations :)..
    i like this observation – “magic is not cheating; it is when the mind fails to perceive the reason” .. and there are always times when reasoning takes a backseat in moments of magic.. like the magic of love..well.. all beautiful moments in life are magical for that matter.. and that flavour is lost when we begin reasoning ..let magics be magics ..that will keep life lustrous 🙂 .. just a thought

      “like the magic of love” And what is that??!!??

    That was amazing poetry, Ram.

    Have you ever seen the beauty of mercury flowing out from a broken thermometer 🙂 I could think of nothing else 🙂 Thanks for such a beautiful comment.

    Yes, I also like magic to remain magic. Thats an interesting observation.

    Perhaps, we should all start observing you more closer to see where you go for breaks… probably like you mentioned, is some magical thing happening to you… like you visiting the beautiful woman at Doc+ like you mentioned in your blog?

    Or perhaps someone more beautiful?

    Anyways, good luck and congratulations 😉

      Thanks Celeste. I briefly went through your blog too. You seem to be a warm and interesting and spiritual person too. Hope we can get to know more of each other in the days to come.
