Belief and Non Belief

All of us have our notions, or imagination, about god...
Almighty exists... he doesn't... 
He runs our life... we do....
He has a form... he is infinite...
He lies in that corner of that room called a temple... he lies within me....

Whichever form/format one prescribes to... 
Whichever belief or non - belief one lives with...
It's a choice best made by one self...

It would be wrong to question the others belief or instigate the other... However, it is equally important to respect other peoples thoughts on the issue...
Somehow, we find it so obvious to explain our status/ line of thought on the issue that we often try and convince other to align their thought...

Whatever else might be different, but we are all human (or are atleast trying to be! )... 
And that should be enough to bind us...
Belief might be important, but isn't there a bigger commonality between all of us which should ideally be sufficient to co-exist...

Time - Distance - Speed ? Longing !

Distance makes the heart grow stronger... I had heard this line so often, but I always wondered if it was true.... I mean, doesn't all the distance add up into something cynical in that small contraption being carried over shoulders by our necks...

I guess we'll have to just wait and watch for the final verdict....
Keeping my fingers crossed...

Piecing it together

There is a lot of merit in piecing everything together, even if it is something as simple as a jigsaw puzzle to something life keeps throwing our way...

The biggest benefit, ofcourse, is that we are working towards putting it together, towards a final goal, an end result, which in itself results in lots of positivity..

Also, humans seem to have a tendency to play with puzzles... we like toying with the conditions to figure out what fits the situation best....

And finally, if the end result is as expected or better, the sense of achievement is incomparable.. the joy of completion with the desired outcome provides a sense of satisfaction which most daily activities are deficient of...

Ultimately, a puzzle might puzzle us... 
but once we solve the puzzle...
we are often puzzled as to 
why the puzzle puzzled us so much :)

An instant of opportunity

What would you do if you are unexpectedly given the choice of choosing you future... 
or atleast a form of it...
Would you jump at the opportunity, or just blank out like me...

Let me explain...
there were multiple thoughts running through my head just at that instance...
first, and foremost, as ironic as it may sound, I wondered if I might end up underestimating myself (like duhhh !)
the other one ofcourse, was wondering if life (or rather the circumstance) was playing a joke on me...

Effectively, the opportunity and the option was lost...

Maybe, sometime in the future, I'd wonder if I would've been better off making the choice !!!
