coverThey say the only ones who are awake late at night are the lonely and the loved. The former find it hard to fall asleep when all they have to do is dream with open eyes about their beloved. It’s almost a compulsion.
But what about the lonely? All the artists, the dreamers; the ones who hold tight to a reality they don’t understand and want to explain? Continue reading

Imagination and obsession

imaginationmotivationSuch a wonderful gift the world has given us… the power of imagination. We can make anything up in our minds. Create anything at all. Re-arrange elements, add or subtract…

It is said we spend about 30% of the time daydreaming. It is said we fall asleep imagining perfect scenarios…some times we sleep with them inside our heads too.

Tonight I’m going to tell you how imagination can help you get everything you ever wanted. Continue reading

The mountain

“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.” – Muhammad Ali

Ever felt like a failure? Worthless? Lonely being redemption, broken beyond repair. A waste of time?

Ever felt that it just doesn’t matter?

Ever felt like you couldn’t do something because it was too difficult? Because you were just not good enough? Or smart enough? Or you didn’t have the resources you needed?

Ever felt hopeless, seemingly destined to spend your life daydreaming about what would never be and what was and could no longer be? Continue reading

Life is pain

image

“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” William Goldman

I’m not a big fan of “positive thinking.” Yes, it’s important that we love ourselves, that we try to see all that is good and worthy of gratitude in us and others. I believe in seeing the light in others and offering them the support they need to better themselves.

But I also know that it is extremely important that we be realistic about what is what and who is who.

The Dying of The Light

They say there’s one lesson of importance that life keep trying to teach us: letting go. Accepting whatever happens and moving on. Understanding that it is futile to fight fate, destiny, or the will of the gods.

That, I’m afraid, is a lesson in humility that I never learned. And I think that I learned a different lesson altogether. That of holding on. Of being brave in the face of adversity, of being bold and persistent. Of forging your own destiny. Continue reading

10000 posts

200 posts later, and the so-called “journey” isn’t going anywhere. I’m not going anywhere.

Exactly 2 years ago, I got a call from my father. “Your brother .. Bahrain .. dead..”. I don’t think I can ever forget that night and the days that followed.

200 posts later, and I have not stopped self-chastising my worthless self. I have no love for myself at all. No matter what I do, no matter where I go, no matter what I try, I always end up hating myself more and more.

Some doctors called this “General Anxiety Disorder”. Other labeled me as “Bipolar”. A few told me to go fuck myself because they got bored of listening to the same self-depreciating record I keep on playing.

I have nothing positive for you, folks.

I’m currently at a place in my life where I neither see the glass as half full nor half…

Cytotoxic – the power of words

Grumpytyke

My second passion after music is writing, and a sudden urge to write longer fiction, rather than my usual 100 word stories and haiku, resulted in twelve and a half thousand words in an unfinished story. Attempts at fiction, or poetry, only began in earnest when, a couple of years ago, I was introduced to our then newly-formed local writers’ club. Set a theme at each fortnightly meeting I usually managed to come up with something.

Until that time my real passion had been to write journalistically, more recently mainly by blogging.

The English Patient book coverThe detour into fiction may have been halted, hopefully temporarily, by recent events, including reading a novel; my previous experience of it had been only through the film based on it – The English Patient.

The last time I was stopped completely by a novel was when, at 17, I read The Grapes of Wrath for the…

inadequate

There’s this imaginary wall between you and everyone else. It makes you stand alone, whether you like it or not. It makes you lonely, frustrated, bitter, sad.

It’s them, and it’s you.

And all get to do is stare blankly, ask questions that have no answers, pray, and just despise yourself more and more. Continue reading
