This and That!

He asked, what is it that you want?

I answered, this and that!

Then he asked, why is it that you want this and that?

I answered, just wanna feel good and happy about myself!

He couldn’t help asking, with the things that I gave, are you happy?

I answered, not really, but I guess, this one would certainly make me feel happy!

He smiled and didn’t say a word after.

I wondered!

And so is the wonder that we keep wondering,

We keep aspiring,

We keep making aims,

We keep having ambitions,

And

We continue to perspire for this and that!

Then comes a reality check, when we all take a pause to ponder,

Over the things we all have so called achieved in life,

Over the assets that we all have accumulated over a period of time,

Over the relations that we all have forged during our lifetimes,

Yet

We don’t get that thing that we all look for,

What is it that we all look for?

And then we all come across a thought which resonates with something like this:

ख्वाइशों का आलम ऐसा था जनाब,
कि हम खुद को ही भुला बैठे!

What ensues is a trail of:

Not finding answers,

Not finding a purpose,

Not being able to come to terms with one’s current state of affairs and mind,

And

Getting lost in the ख्वाइश of this चमक and that धमक of this material world.

Without realizing what this and that did and continues to do with all of us.

The Delta Flotation!

What people might refer to as distractions, I might want to call it the hidden desires, though, why hidden is a question that we all need to ponder over as a society!

The limitation of not being able to say a NO when you don’t really want it, and the anxiety of being judged by the who’s who of your own community, in case you gather the courage to speak out, is a dilemma that most face in today’s judgemental and opinionated world.

Have you ever wondered, what happens to those desires, when they don’t find an expression?

Way sign

Well, to a certain extent, you try to conform to the norms of the society, by merging it with distorted terminologies such as daily distractions, or the likes; at other times you just choose to internalise the very same, which might find an expression through your eyes, if the one who perceives is open enough to the possibility of understanding the very nature of what that might mean.

What lies at the core is a wonderful possibility of being open to the very nature of life and its dynamics, for the hidden must find an expression.

So, what are you waiting for, unless and until you take that delta step towards being in a state of flotation, what more there is to it!
