Unconditional Acceptance

ID-10085884

“She is so dominating, and very demanding,” complained Sergio.

“And you want liberty. You want full autonomy,” said Luis.

“Yes, that is what I want. I can’t operate this way.”

“That’s right. But everyone has different way of approching things.”

“I know. But..”

“She is caring. We both know that. Witty, charming, smart and much more that you are not.”

“That’s right.”

“And you are much more weird and twisted. Do you agree?”

“Yes, undoubtedly.”

“Though she accepts you as the way you are. Why can’t you?”

“What do I do now?”

“Accept her as the way she is and you will feel good.”

The crazy fact is, unconditional acceptance changes unfavorable circumstances substantially.

ID-100264893

“Hey, Jeet!! Why are you looking sad?” asked Dia.

“I am sad,” replied Jeet.

“Yeah, I know. But, why?”

“It’s just another bad day.”

“What happened?”

“I was going to attend my friend’s wedding. We were supposed to leave at 8’o’clock in the morning. Bus came so late that we left at 9:30. This is how we spent next 8 hours. 3 hours of travelling to the place of wedding, 1 hour at the wedding and 4 hours travelling back to home.”

“What? 7 hours of travelling for just 1 hour?”

“Yes, we reached just before the ceremony.”

“Or just before wedding meal?”

“Please, don’t start!”

“Ohkk, ohkk!!”

“Then I thought I will go to play football and have fun. But again to my disappointment, only 4 players were there. No fun.”

“Anything more?”

“Yes. I submitted an article on women empowerment and it got rejected because someone submitted on that topic before me.”

The crazy fact is, on the bad day, if anything goes wrong, everything goes wrong successively.

Not Every Guy Is A Jackass

ID-100141511

Holding the hand of a guy, she smiled with shyness
Who was that guy, I wondered, none of my business

Do I have any chance, hmm?? Staring them furtively
Seeking confirmation that they were just friends

Whoa, whoa, what made me think that?? Am I foolish
Or naïve or innocent?? No, that was ridiculous! Leave it!!

Ohh, I got a train to catch, hurry up, and walk faster
Missing trains by seconds is more embarrassing

And the train is 15 minutes late, what do I do now?
Late trains are meant for something, I realized

Within 2-3 minutes she arrived, this time, alone
She also wants to catch the train! Wow!!

Wait, wait!! That doesn’t mean anything..
Doesn’t it? Coincidences aren’t accidents!!

I have time to know her by observing her
Found a place to know something interesting

While staring her, I found the peace in the rush,
The solitude in the crowd and beauty in detachment

Coincidently our eyes met and it showed the reflection
Of her soul, her inner voice, her entire way of being

And, to my disappointment, the way she looked at me
Like I’m prying on her, passing my time looking at pretty face

Those suspicious, skeptical eyes were giving me the signals of
She misunderstood me, I’m not the kind of guy you think I am

I know it’s very difficult for a girl to trust any stranger,
In today’s heinous world of rapist minds and eve teasers

But I had a crush on you, and I wasn’t following you,
I was genuinely interested to know you, but not from now

You think I’m a jackass who stares every beautiful girl that passes
Not every guy is a jackass who wants pass his time anyhow

The crazy fact is, there are the guys who respect girls,
And genuinely interested in them. Yeah, we will never know how
you feel in these social scenarios, but look at us through our eyes,
Not through those hypocrites who are disgrace to humanity.

“This guy is so quiet all the time,” said Jenny to Eva in class.

“Please welcome the new student of our class, the founder of trailblazers.com, Jim Reigns,” announced teacher.

“Wow! He is the one behind getting all the young trailblazers into the light through his website,” exclaimed Jenny in shock and excitement.

The crazy fact is, the packets which take time to open up are those with the biggest blasts.

“But you decided that you are going to do homework first and then play,” said Shikha to her friend Saumya.

“Yeah! But I changed my mind. I can’t focus on studies due to excitement of playing,” replied Saumya.

“See, you are not playing good as per your natural game.”

“No, I’m playing good.”

“It feels like you have something in mind. You are not fully committed.”

“No. I’m into it.”

“No, you are not.”

“Yeah, you are right!”

“What is the matter?”

“Study. I get tired when I go home and do not feel like studying. And, due to worries of completing studies, I’m not able to play my natural game either. I don’t know whether I’ll be in a mood to study.”

“Stop thinking about future. You can’t live fully if you are worried about future.”

“But I need to think about it.”

“Yes, you should. Otherwise we would be robots who doesn’t have anything in mind than thinking only about present. But not by worrying about it; but by hoping that it will be just fine.”

The crazy fact is, to live in the moment; we need to think about the future that everything will turn out to be right.

Why Not To Judge People?

ID-10060164

“Hey, why didn’t you do that task? It’s very easy,” said father to Mike.

“I know that. I tried,” replied Mike.

“No, you didn’t. Anyone can do that without using their brain, but you.”

“I didn’t do that deliberately.”

“Is that your excuse?”

“I’m naive. I can make mistakes.”

“But, not this kind of silly mistake.”

“Anybody can make silly mistakes. It won’t happen again.”

“You say this everytime. But, do the same thing again.”

‘He never understands me or helps me know how to avoid it, because he is too busy in judging me and admonishing me, likes he never made silly mistakes’ says son in his mind, standing up quietly and looking down.

*             *              *

“Why are you upset, Mike?” asked his friend Ryan.

“Nothing. I don’t want to talk about it,” replied Mike.

“I’m not here to judge you, but to understand you.”

Mike told what happened. Ryan told him what to do instead of using his mind analyzing how he can make silly mistakes. And Mike felt good after that.

The crazy fact is, judging people yields bitterness and understanding yields strengthening of bond.

Increasing The Comfort Zone

ID-100138661

“If tyre of your bike was punctured, why didn’t you ask your colleague to give you a lift to bus stop?” asked father to his son who recently joined a new company.

“But, I am new there,” replied son.

“So, what’s problem in asking for help? You walked 2 kilometers.”

“It was awkward to ask. We are all new there. We haven’t interacted much. I barely know anyone. It felt uncomfortable.”

“Son, the crazy fact is, you need to get uncomfortable to increase the comfort zone.”

“You are on right track. Improvise,” replied Guru.

“But, I’ve got into things that don’t serve my purpose.”

“If the beginning is like this, I’m afraid what will happen throughout the journey?”

“Remember, the crazy fact is, uncertainty is the only certain thing.”

What’s Inside Wasn’t Alive When It Was Light

ID-100126790

“I don’t know what’s going on in my life,” said a frustrated boy to monk.

“What is the matter?” asked monk.

“I think I’ve lost control over my life. I can’t do what I want to do, can’t express myself, I think I’m wasting my time, over-thinking about small things, just passing the days, not doing something that would add value to my life as well as others’ lives. I’m being someone else to show others that I’m happy, but I’m not.”

“How did you get to this point?”

“I don’t know.”

“Tell me, how do you spend your day?”

“I wake up at 7. Go to gym because my father wants me to. Till 8, I exercise. Then, get ready for a class at 9, which my parents wanted me to join. Till 12, I spend the time in class somehow. Till 1, I’m home. Till 4, I have lunch, play games on computer, and do some reading. From 4 to 6, I sleep. From 6 to 8, I spend time on computer again. At 8 to 10, I read or study. At 10, I have dinner and then watch TV and go to sleep.”

“How long have you been doing this?”

“From past 2 months, since I finished college. I wanted to do something else. But my parents, my friends are not convinced that would work, so I am not doing it. Or sometimes, I do that. But, I can’t do that wholeheartedly.”

“Why don’t you do that? There will always be some people who don’t agree with you. It does not mean you should give in.”

“But..”

“First of all, you must accept full responsibility for what’s happening to you. You are responsible.”

“Yes, you are right. I know that. But..”

“What did you do when you were in college? Why didn’t you work on it, so till this time, you would have had something in hand as an output to back up your intentions. You give in to comforts and fun. And it has become your habit. You don’t want to do what’s difficult. You find an easy way out. You got to do what necessary and difficult. Otherwise things won’t change. It will get darker and darker for you.”

“But it’s uncomfortable.”

“Do it anyway. When it gets dark, everything ceases and the only thing that remains alive is: what’s inside. But the crazy fact is, it gets dark, because what’s inside wasn’t alive when it was light.”
