Alternatives

Standard

There are just two alternatives in life,either be happy or sulk, either admire or criticize, either laugh or cry.The choice is ours to make.

Those who always see negative in everything are the ones who let happiness slip away from their fists like sand.Slowly draining life from them, while those who focus on positives are the ones capturing happiness in their fists like air.Air, which stays even when the fist is open.

Life is neither a bed of roses nor a field of thorns.It is a combination of both.People searching for happiness outside of their own hearts are the ones who never find it or miss on it, for it is a state of mind, a desire ,a tenant of the soul.

They do not absorb the goodness in their surrounding, they sulk,complain, criticize,make others uncomfortable, get ignored and mistreated by others.People avoid their company, pretend to be indifferent to their needs and definitely do not want to waste their emotions and energy in pacifying or placating these tortured souls.
Unfortunately, they are like thunderbolts which attract attention, cause severe damage and are finally forgotten.

On the other hand, there are people who bring out from within themselves the most common yet the rarest of feelings;happiness, joy.Sprinkling the world with their laughter , love and positive energy.These people brighten other people’s lives. They absorb pain and pleasure around them and convert it into energy which is like evergreen music.
They are like monsoon rain, which washes all the dirt , cleans everything and leaves a lasting impression.For they embrace life as it is without any complains.

The choice is ours, who we want to be? How we want to spend the rest of our lives? What we want to achieve?

Candle

Standard
 

Unbridled Expressions will be featuring for a week some photographs by guest artist Amit Sharma.
 
The photographs are about illumination.Illumination can be achieved by a single candle or numerous candles, it can be done by electricity,by the Sun,the Moon, by the knowledge imparted by a teacher to his/her students.Illumination is not just lighting up an area or space,it is also about the light imparted to the minds and souls of people. It is about lighting up a person’s existence and life.It is the act of getting illuminated or illuminating others and  being in a state of illumination. A mind which is illuminated by the light of knowledge and experience is the one which can illuminate a thousand other minds without ever striking a match.
