Hiding behind mountains of words,
Or dams of silence,
Outbursts of emotions.
Harbouring the electric energy,
Dangerous for sure,
Mend the cracks,
Trust is the essence of a strong mutual bond. Everyone has their own perception of trust. It is difficult to understand and estimate it. The sanctity of a relationship can be easily compromised if there is slightest of breach in trust.
It is not a constant, it is a random variable. The value keeps changing with each action. The action could be the slightest of change in the whole equation.
Trust is also not a bank account where one keeps getting interest on it once it is earned and deposited. The Principal has to be maintained otherwise it keeps fluctuating.
It is like hard earned income, very hard to earn but easily spent or lost if one is not handling it judiciously. One needs to earn it, save it, invest in it, cherish it and finally enjoy it.
Walking hand in hand towards rising hope, welcoming a new day.
On a road uncluttered and clear made of faith.
Cool, calm breeze ruffling the hair, could turn into a storm.
Reminding, urging to be one another’s pillar of strength.
Flowers of prosperity blooming, filling the heart with contentment.
Finding joy in each other’s company, feeling safe.
Street lights , the guiding lights, like the trust within.
For life will happen everyday if we have each other.
Illusion refers to ” something that deceives by producing false or misleading impression of reality.”
In today’ s world, when social media is at its pinnacle, people, young or old are convoluted in a never ending maze of illusions.
Illusions arising from the desire of an individual to be a part of something.Social medias have groups,groups which comprise of all kinds of relationships.School mates, college mates, colleagues, neighbours, family members, cousins. Worst of all , bunch of strangers, tied together like a rope by some common interest.Think about an acquaintance and you can accommodate that person in a particular group.
The reason behind this culture is the basic need of a human to belong. To belong to someone, to belong to a particular niche.The need of a person to believe that they are wanted and are of value to someone, anyone.
How real is this sense of belonging, and how much of it is mere mirage?
A blast of personal information, photographs,opinions are exchanged between people everyday.This regular food for brain creates the most deadly illusion.
You see a bunch of faces, that you remember from childhood, or faces you see every day but do not connect to on a personal level, or faces of people you know inside out. Their images, their photographs, their opinions, their advice, their sense of humour bombard our brains everyday creating the illusion of familiarity.
Familiarity which may or may not be real but misleading impression of reality. For those faces are imprinted on our conscious everyday.
This familiarity creates an illusion of ” idea of a person” in our brains . Imaginary persons are formed in the subconscious, they are actually real people but their behaviour, their characteristics are moulded as per our own likings, only the faces remain the same and the subconscious gives birth to a new individual.
One must stop for a second and ponder, if these people you have formed an ” idea of” are real! Is one really safe in the virtual company of such dual individuals, whom we assure ourselves we know yet are stranger to.
