7 Pounds

August 2, 2009

NOT A MOVIE REVIEW (BUT A MOVIE REVIEW)

Just yesterday did I get to watch the movie starring Will Smith. It was so unlike his usual movies. The story was very touching; but being verrrrry me that I am, I couldn’t help but analyse the whole movie not in a Movie Critic way but wrt LIFE like I do.

Tim Thomas(Will Smith’s character) searches for people deserving his “Gifts”. Gifts which would get their life downside up. Gifts which they never thought they could have. Gifts they worked hard to deserve but wouldn’t get one. Tim in some sort of way plays GOD, making sure that they did get what they deserved. He give his 7Pounds to 7 people.

And I realised after watching the movie that I myself haven’t given my Life its 7Pounds so how was I to give it to someone else? I myself haven’t made sure I did everything I wanted to. I never made sure I got whatever I wanted. I did work hard; but not for everything. Sometimes I just didn’t want to. I gave my 7Pounds only for my deepest desires and left out the others thinking I couldn’t get it to reach reality. I didn’t want to give even a Pound for it. I didn’t even try just because I thought I couldn’t. Now I am all set to give all the Pounds. I shall pound it or shall bear it.

And if you have given all of it and lost hope….well there is Tim Thomas on his way into your life. If you deserve it you will have it.

So now I know I give my self what I deserve.

Can I do better?

I know I WILL.

Change

July 27, 2009

Since we were born till you get to the end of reading this post, one thing has been prominent: CHANGE. You have become bigger, more intelligent, much more experienced and a lot more that has CHANGED in you. With a little observation, one can see a ‘hang’ in there.May be it is to say that your OLD self  ‘hangs’ itself and you ‘hang on’ to the NEW, better you.

So why do we hear people not wanting to change? May be they are too comfortable to be the way they are?But in some sense they have changed. To have decided to not to change means that they have ‘changed’ to resist change. But how long can one resist change?Is it really possible to not change?

Change is inevitable and for sure to occur not only till one dies but even after death where the body will decompose, form nutrition for some vegetation and be the edible food. The environment within us and outside us doesn’t resist change. More knowledge everyday, more thoughts and more thinking and analysis. This changes all the perception about the previous assumptions.

Changing or being the Change, you do CHANGE.

All of us have favourite something:books, songs, movies, comic characters. Having read, seen or heard them, we automatically try to analyse them. Somehow unconciously our minds picks up few things from them and it becomes a part of us.

To make it a bit more clearer. Many of us enjoy watching the TV series HOUSE M.D. Out of everyone who watch it, most them have a liking for the character of Gregory House. The way he is sarcastically funny & ends up being right all the time. At the end of it I realised I wanted to be like that guy on my screen and for no reason I felt i should have chosen MBBS over engineering(Mechanical is still the best) which surely wasn’t what I wanted then nor now.

Same thing applies to musicians, cricketers, the people around you(remember how to caught on to lingos of your friends around you), philosophies……The list can go on. Nor can this be avoided. It sure is inevitable and nor is everything inspirational; few are influencing us just like what I am writing now or have and will do has affected you, influence you in someway.

So how do I differentiate between the Real I and the Influenced I? How do I know that the choices I make aren’t under the influence of  some other person’s thinking or something that the person has said? How do look into my own eyes in the mirror and assure myself that the person in front of me is the REAL ME?How do I segregate on what should influence me and what should inspire me?

Questions remain unanswered. If you have them, let me know. If not join in; paitience shall pave way and we shall be enlightened at the end.

POST JULY 16TH

I realised I asked the wrong question. I wanted to know this system of life; which was working well just like the others. I questioned the obvious and the natural.Like Timbaland’s song it is:

THE WAY I ARE.

Why so serious?

June 18, 2009

Well I am not someone who would have extended stiched lips and dress up like a clown but that guy made some sense when he says that. ‘Why so serious?’

So what is the answer to that question?Why is everyone so serious?I can’t think of any reason(let me know what your reasons are).

But I did realise most of us enjoy the most when we are not ‘serious’. So why do something that doesn’t give some peace of mind or pleasure……lets have fun.And we surely would enjoy company of people who aren’t serious…so just do others a favour and give them company enjoying.

For no reasons do coaches ask their players to enjoy their games. Chances of one performing are better that way. And going with the non-serious spirit; life sure is comparable to some sport.Play to win;you may lose a few but you win the REST.

SO next time when you got exams or someone who wants to show off asking you question in your viva or when you fail or lose something you always wanted to have; fret not; enjoy because it shall all come back if it has to or may be even get something better.

Seriuosly being serious we all can stop being serious &

ENJOY!!!!!

Food for SOUL

Stays in my head

Lips try to say it

Whistling along is what I do;

Will get you to move

Move your head or your hip

You will fall for it,

Words along put some sense

Without which is also good;

Anything makes it-

Everyone likes it to be

Served differently,

Tears pour or the faces grin

When it is right into our ears,

Life without this

Would seem to be dumb

Makes us deaf:

Don’t hear

Listen

Few call it waves

Others Music

But My Soul eats it

GODma

God?How many of have discovered Him?But does he actually exist.In some ways all of do believe in His existence.

Athiests who don’t belive in Him,to disprove His existence have to intially belive in Him and only after unsatisfactory analysis choose to “ignore” His presence but this doesn’t account to not believing in His presence.

So now considering all of us know about His presence,we should even try to know what He actually is.

According to  me,GOD is a step ahead of being good.If you saw a statue of any Hindu diety,it shows the Lord being in perfect physical shape,smiling implying on how happy He is and decorated in beautiful attire.

And we just go to temple to get some peace where we cannot find else where.Well the meaning lies right there.We need to go to a Temple to remind us how Godly we have to be.We have to learn to maintain health,stay happy in all times,lead a beautiful life and then when we have done all of that the Temple is the environment around me in which I live.We are GODs of our own lives.

So the next question is:Why would we need GOD if I were to be Him eventually?

God is one who sets those Standards.He is to lead us into us discovering Him.Without Him we wouldn’t know how to find Him in us.Without Him,we wouldn’t know what is evil or good.He is to enchance ur good to GOD.

If you are Good you can be GOD too.

He got GAME

May 3, 2009

Once was a Man

Failure was the path he walked for long

But with that powerful mind he could run

Ran so far and swift and then he got,

The taste of that sweet fruit he desired to have

Fruit from whose seeds he got more

Trees of success he owned now

Happiest of all he was

Time flew trees grew

Restless he got,

Happiness seemed to leave just like time

Wanting to relive his old days

He cut down all his trees

And no one knew

Glad he was again

Old days were back again

But this time he knew how to do it all

He knew the game

He got the game

Grew his trees back

Happy enough to wither away along their side
