PROMPT 118

Directionless

An unfocused mind

Goes  awry directions

Like rudderless boat

#Haikai Challenge #121 (1/13/20): take down pine (decorations) (matsu osame) #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

House looks neat and clean

Taken down decorations
The mind still clinging
To the fun partying with friends
Hangover takes time to go

Intense self-belief

Helps to come out of the mess

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 – 104

Here’s another week that promises to be full of creativity and fun.

PROMPT  104- LONG AND SHORT OF IT

You need not get lost in the length. Just choose any three words – by instinct, by closing your eyes and placing a finger, by following a number game (3,27,91 or something like it), by creating an alphabetical logic …. The choice is all yours.

 ( body, beauty, passengers)

 I wake up at 3 am to find my body seems to be gliding through the air. 

My surrounding seems to vanish.

There is just me floating or rather gliding in the air and the star-studded sky. 

My mind, usually a chatterbox is dumbfounded by the magnificence of the scene. 

It’s overwhelming to witness such beauty.

So many times I have seen stars shining in the sky but today it seems so serene, surreal, incredible, divine. 

I’m spellbound.

Am I hallucinating?

It lasts just for a few seconds.

 A jerk brings me back to my surrounding.

 The driver shouts something unprintable to some unknown creature.

The spell is broken.

 I’m on a sleeper AC bus, on the night journey from Hyderabad to Mumbai.

All passengers are sleeping, oblivious to the beauty surrounding them.

Noise and the jerk didn’t disturb them. They just stir and sleep again.

Perhaps it’s their daily business. 

They are habituated to all this.

It is my first journey on an AC bus. 

I thank my luck for getting the window seat and

once in a lifetime experience. 

 

 

 

 
 

Nurt Thurs – Love Your Body

Posted on

Nurt Thurs – Your Body( To “give this planet a much-needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I dub Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.)-beccagivens

 

The body is not your enemy, nor is it in any way unfriendly or

even indifferent to you. The very existence of the body is bliss. If

you love your body, you become relaxed, you care about it. It is

not wrong; it is not narcissistic to be in love with your own body.

In fact, it is the first step towards spirituality.               

(Osho: Meditation: The Art of Ecstasy)

When taking a shower, feel it all over the body – every drop of water touching you. Feel the touch, the coldness, the warmth! Try this the whole day whenever you have the chance, and everywhere there is a chance – everywhere! When just breathing, feel the breath – its movement within and its going out – just feel it! Just feel your own body. You have not felt it.

Boys tusslingWe are so afraid of our own bodies. No one touches his own body in a loving way. Have you ever given any love to your own body?

The whole civilization is afraid of anyone touching himself because from childhood touching has been denied. It appears to be masturbatory to touch oneself in a loving way. But if you cannot touch yourself in a loving way your body will go dull and dead. It has gone so. Touch your eyes with your palms.

Feel the touch, and your eyes will feel fresh and alive immediately. Feel your body all over. Feel your lover’s body, your friend’s body. Massage is good. Two friends can massage each other and feel each other’s bodies. You will become more sensitive.

(Osho: The Book of Secrets Volume 2)

 

The body is nothing but the visible aspect of the soul, and the soul is nothing but the invisible aspect of the body.

(Osho The First Principle)

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #82

PROMPT

I am not a fatalist. I’m not obsessed with darkness. Yet, a landmark development in astronomy this week inspires me to remain on the periphery of the theme, but not get sucked inside.

 

mother said

put all your miseries
in a black hole
you have in your mind
find your own solutions
and learn from them
no use sharing with others
they will listen
with sympathy first
but only once
then will start ignoring you
as everyone has some problem
which they want to share
understanding other problem is difficult
so be a good listener
listen with attention
and
I’m listening
till now

Relax- The Daily Post

image4659

 

I’m no expert in relaxation technic. I’m writing about what helped me to relax.

Relaxing does not come easily in a world full of tension, miseries, instability, diseases, etc, etc.

Our mind is made to worry and fight since survival of the fittest was the rule to survive.

Power, money, strength cannot make you worry-less till we learn to live in peace and harmony with understanding and friendship.

And that’s not going to happen till we become selfless, tolerant and respectful to each other and induce faith, belief, and acceptance in our lifestyle.

What to do till then? Worry our self to death?

Well, I nearly did that.

Then one day a little birdie told me,

‘ relax dear, there are some problems you can solve with little patience, hard work, and sincere effort, give them your 100 percent.

Some you can’t solve alone. Don’t shy away from taking help from friends and help them in return.

Still, there are some problems you can’t do anything about, agree to that and leave them to God and professionals.’

It was not easy.

One has to take sincere effort to relax by any means you like, music, deep breathing, yoga…anything to help to relax.

One has to practice it daily to make it a habit but don’t relax and take your mind for granted. The mind is a very stubborn fellow. Like a serpent, it will raise its head, by raising doubts. Don’t fight it.

Just go on practicing relaxation.

The day comes when you are ready to face problems with a calm mind.

Of course, you can’t do anything if someone drops a bomb on your head.
