Inevitable Truths

The heart desires remorselessly and the mind suffers- bearing the weight of all the consequences and fretting over the tiniest of things. It’s in these moments you begin to question everything you ever stood for, when your principles are challenged by none other than your own self. What are you supposed to do when the…

Love Yourself More Today

Fall in love with taking care of yourself. Fall in love with the path of deep healing. Fall in love with becoming the best version of yourself but with patience, with compassion and respect to your own journey. -s.menutt Many of us are brainwashed by society to love ourselves only conditionally by assessing our worth…

International Yoga Day 2020

Here are some splendid words about yoga for us to seek inspiration and get motivated on this International Yoga Day. Yoga is not a religion. It is a science, science of well-being, science of youthfulness, science of integrating body, mind and soul. @amitray Yoga is not just doing some exercise, it is much more. It…

Most Important Things

The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them, words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie…

Bloom

How familiar we are with darkness can be quite surprising at times. You sit there and wonder how someone that looks so alive can actually be so melancholic. I believe that this darkness is what sets the right contrast for us to see clearly. But our role doesn’t end there, we don’t just survive and…

വൈറസ്

ഏകാന്തത ഒരു മാരക വൈറസ് ആണെന്ന് പലപ്പോഴും ഞാൻ വിചാരിക്കാറുണ്ട്. നമ്മുടെ അനുവാദമില്ലാതെ തന്നെ, തൻ്റെ നിശബ്ദ ശല്കങ്ങളാൽ അത് നമ്മെ സ്പർശിക്കും.. പിന്നെ, ആരും കാണാതെ, ഒരു വിഷവള്ളി പോലെ..നമ്മളിലേക്ക് പടർന്നുകയറും. അപ്പോൾ ആൾകൂട്ടമൊഴിഞ്ഞു നാം തനിയെ ആകും.. ഈ ലോകത്തിനു നേരെ വാതിൽ കൊട്ടിയടക്കാൻ,.. ആരും കാണാതെ ഒളിഞ്ഞിരിക്കാൻ…നാം പഠിക്കും. ചൂടും കുളിരും നമ്മെ മാറി മാറി പുണരും.. നാം ചുമയ്ക്കും, കിതയ്ക്കും, ശ്വാസത്തിന് വേണ്ടി പിടയും…. അപ്പോൾ, ‘നമ്മളി’ൽ നിന്ന് ‘നീ’യും ‘ഞാനു’മെന്ന…

Broken Ones

Who fixes broken people? Is it only other broken people, ones who’ve already been ruined? And do we need to be fixed? It was the messiness and hurt in our pasts that drove us, and that same hurt connected us at a subdermal level, the kind of scars written so deeply in your cells that…

Moments

Sometimes I space out- all the voices around me turn to misapprehended languages trying to invade the bubble I form around me, but the bubble turns glass thick, and the voices walk away. And in moments like these, I really see what I never knew I was looking for. I see that friend who tries…

The Dream That Never Was

I woke up, and the sunlight felt different. The messy house I lived in, that I couldn’t bring myself to call home, was peaceful. There wasn’t any sound of yelling, there wasn’t any sign of war. My father believed in mental health and never crossed the boundaries that hurt my heart. My mother was starting…

Her Solitude!

As selfish as it sounded, she had to focus on herself. She kept trying to find happiness in other people, but realized it had to come from within her. Everyone wasn’t meant to understand her solitude and some felt slighted by her focus. Then again, misery loved company and she learned to love being alone….

The Art Of Letting Go

“Let It Go”- the three words that have managed to become the slogan of my life. As irritating as it is, I can’t help but wonder what happens when we let go? We know what happens to material objects. You throw away your old pair of shoes and it’s gone. Someone else will probably find…
