When it’s dark and dull

Who says life is all about happiness, joy and fun? We pass through many things. Can’t remain untouched by the events as and when they occur all the time, constantly affecting us.

The grit and moulds will always be around the bushes of flowers and thorns. Dramatically, we are constantly witnessing many events. The lull, forsaken, sulky, depressed, hopelessness, dependant, paralyzed, handicapped feeling that we all are familiar with, takes away a good chunk of energy from our lives.

We cause hurt when we get hurt and it reciprocates to much of our awe. How is it possible to cause pain when experienced pain. Doesn’t it should hurt more to even think of making someone go through same pain that you experienced (be though caused by the same person) and know how bad it broke you. Does it makes sense to gift a thorn that pierced you once?

But yet, we do it. We cause hurt. And then the guilt follows like a creepy little monster. And we learn nothing, the sequence repeats. The story never ends. May be it was never meant to end. But certain changes can help you part away with some burdens that we drag whole of our lives. Not just guilt, it’s – self-glorification & self-blame. Both are same things, as one begets another, like a snake eating it’s tail; it coils into self-regret.

We give too much importance to things. Ignorance is bliss. And mind you, there is a pit fall with ignorance. Ignorance is not the pill to any ailment, but it helps buy time, like a pain killer. It helps in recovering. It can never be a wholesome solution. To those who rely too much on ignorance or follow the ‘let it be’ attitude, may experience thier ignorance turning into arrogance.

So when it’s dark and dull, ignore. Ignore the incompleteness. Ignore the instinct to make it whole again, or correct, or amend. Let things move away, let things revolve around, let things drift to-n-fro. Allow it all. As you are no cause, and hence in no control. Stick to righteous. No matter if no one watches. Our senses won’t lie, unless drugged. Drugged senses are all euphoric and may momentarily feel helpful in contrasting figurative solutions, but aren’t trustworthy and hence skewed.

Sense it. Ignore it. Find ‘you’ – the cause. Forgive ‘you’ – the host. And find out what you like, or enjoy. It will take a long time to flick. Until then, it may all be dark and dull.

The original purpose of this blog was promoting city cycling and popularizing urban green belt corridors, which it did for it's first one and a half year, since the year of it's launch - 2014. Now-a-days, that is, since the last two years, I haven't been city commuting on my bike, thanks to my city earning the world's most air polluted region title. And thanks to the redesigning of City roads, those are forked under construction since the last six months, loosing a green cover of a whooping 9,100+ trees and the rising construction dust hazards. And lastly thanks to El nino of 2015 and El nina of 2016. I don't know if I have missed any other reason. The theme of the blog, hence, changed, into a bit of my own ramblings covering topics, such as - my travel blogging, social issues in India, climate change & biodiversity conservation.
