Reena’s Exploration Challenge #110

 

It is in the darkest hour that

when I vent out my frustrations
after crying my heart out
or
by pouring everything on a paper to tear it and throw
of course at night
when no one sees or notices
I feel rejuvenated
as venting
blows away  the dirt
trying to pollute my mind
A light sneaked in the darkness
telling me
that
‘giving lots of  benefits of doubt’
to other 
makes 
life
more compatible.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #108

‘Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

I know

I can’t change

anything in this world:

anything which is fake 

or

the attitude of people towards life,

towards the environment, poverty, religion

and their consumption of nature’s gifts

without sharing equally

I do not approve

either

nature’s law of death

why make people

in old age

vulnerable

why not they can keep

their innocence, fearlessness, and cheer

like a child

till the end

then let death come

with all its novelty

to carry on nature’s law

and allow them to  go slowly, gently, peacefully, graciously

down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

I wish I could say: 

and I’ve not resigned

but

what ho!

I have no power

no voice

no choice

though

I make a lot of noise

but here I resign.

What else can I do

except changing myself

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #105

 

only if I knew it then…

maybe I would have revised some decisions
or
traded carefully in tough situations
or
had been less impulsive
0r
whatever…

but one thing is sure

it would have  taken away

all the thrill from my life

would have hampered my growth

knowing beforehand is not profitable

always

it shackles you sometimes

life would have been like reading

a mystery book
or
a movie knowing

the end beforehand

 

 

Nurturing Thursdays- Talk to Yourself

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #103- Delightfully Disorienting Dance

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #103

PROMPT

I have a video for you this week

https://aeon.co/videos/strap-in-for-a-delightfully-disorienting-dance-of-humans-going-places

If you do not have the patience to watch 6 minutes of it, use the following words as a prompt

Delightfully Disorienting Dance

Dance

of

life and death

thrust on us by

mother nature,

enjoy it or hate it,

or, get lost

in finding the meaning of it,

or play along as it wants you to play

Whatever

Makes no difference

to

Mother nature.

Just play along as 

birds, animals do.

We can’t understand

whether they like it,

enjoy it

or have grievances about it.

they just seem to

take it as it comes.

Only,

we

human beings,

Because we can,

complain about it.

Some accept, some go on whining.

Still however

difficult,

unbearable,

or confusing,

one may find it,

no one wants to leave

the party.

We also

try to dance along

to our best ability

then only

it becomes

Delightfully

Disorienting

Dance.

 

( Surprising facts- It’s funny to report that 90% of birds mate for life, And they even stay with their partners until death parts them. While there’s only a small percent of mammals that mate for life.)

Nurturing Thursday- Stay Positive, Stay Happy

Posted on

Good advice from Becca- Nurt Thurs – Fired!

“You only have control over three things in your life – the thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take.” – Jack Canfield

So shrug off all the negative thoughts, sow a seed, nurture it and wait.

“STAYING POSITIVE does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that YOU will be okay no matter how things turn out.”– Unknown

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #94

‘ Life was like a box of chocolates. You never what you will get.’ 

From- Forrest Gump

Life is more like a game of cricket.

However, you may seem to be 

efficient in batting

it throws a different ball each time

it has many surprises in its bag

you win or lose

depends on

how much confident, focused and balanced you are

still, it manages to surprise some times

Or

it’s a game of chess

between

life and death

and 

we are just

pawns

PROMPT FOR THIS WEEK

The word ‘compromise’ is just a theme. It need not appear in the piece. There is no harm if it does appear, or a synonym. The choice is yours.

मौत ने पूछा

ज़िंदगी एक छलावा है
एक झूट है
हर दिन हर पल तुम्हारा साथ छोड़ती जाती है
फिर भी तुम उसे प्यार करते हो
मैं एक सच्चाई हूँ अंत तक तुम्हारा साथ निभाती हूँ
पर फिर भी तुम मुझसे नफरत करते हो
मुझसे डरते हो
मुझसे समझौता कर लो
फिर कोई डर  तुम्हें  डरा न पायेगा
मैंने कहा
तुम सत्य हो शाश्वत हो
अनिवार्य हो
पर तुमसे कैसे समझौता करलूं
तुम्हारी टाइमिंग  बहुत गलत होती है
तुम गलत समय पर गलत लोगों को ले जाती हो
तुम गलत समय पर गलत तरीके से आती हो
पूछो उन बदनसीब अभिवावकों से
जिन्होंने खोय अपने लाल असमय
 पूछो उन से ,
जिन्होंने ने गवाए अपने परिजन
आतंकवादियों के हाथों
 उम्र थी जान गवाने की
फिर जो मजबूर, पीड़ित , बीमार
मरने की प्रार्थना करते हैं
उन्हें तुम तड़पने को छोड़ देती हो
बच्चों ,जवानों को अपना शिकार बनाती हो
कैसे करलूं तुमसे समझौता
तुम कड़वा सच हो, अनिवार्य हो पर
न्यायसंगत नहीं
काम से काम मेरी नज़र में तो नहीं
ज़िन्दगी लाख छलावा सही
मीठा झूट सही
पर सुन्दर है जीने का,
लड़ने का हौसला देती है
——————————————————

sometimes we look back

thinking
what if we hadn’t
made the compromises
 life would have been different for
better
or for worse
but
there is no use cribbing now
life
any way is a
a mixed bag of
hopes and disappointments
dreams and realities
victories and defeats
triumphs and disasters
sometimes you win
sometimes you lose
sometimes you have to  run against the tide
make compromises
if need arises
just be sure it’s not alone you
who makes compromises
rules should be
the same for everyone
don’t lose your heart
don’t complain
count your blessings
be proud of whatever you have achieved
keep your composure
spine stretched
shoulders straight
heart full of gratitude
head held with pride

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 63

Prompt

Here is an intriguing picture shared by Harvey Kraft on LinkedIn.

harvey kraft

 

The picture by itself can tell a thousand stories. But I am increasing the complexity a little. Here is a paragraph from another source.

So what exactly happened here? A woman felt powerless because she was unable to let go of a story she was holding onto which made her a victim. Even though she no longer saw this man, her former lover, she carried him within, and over and over again inside was keeping this version of the story alive.

TILL DEATH DO US APART

It seems there is no strength left in me.

I feel completely exhausted.

I can’t go on like this, I want to quit.

It has happened several times in my life.

Shamefull I accept that I had wanted to quit every time I felt  exhauseted

Everytime my conscience nudged me

‘How could you quit, there is so much to do, everyone depends on you?’

I was young then so summoned my willpower and got up every time. 

But now with age catching up, it seems an uphill task. 

I’m lying on the floor, helpless, hoping to go…There comes an extending hand for help, 

How could you be so desperate? Didn’t you promise, ‘ till death do us apart’?

Oh yes, I remembered. 

Indeed how could I leave him in the middle of our journey?

He was always there to support me, never grumbled, criticized or belittled me. 

What I was complaining about?

With a feeling of guilt, I grab the extended hand thankfully.

Indeed the show must go on ’till death do us apart.’

Didn’t once I advised everyone that’

When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is, in life a lot of tension
Take a break and retrospect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction, and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break and meditate.
