a dabbler in verse till a decade ago - mostly poems written once upon a time - -
"Better to have thoughtand struggled to createand suffered and diedthan flow alongwithout thought."Ma'am, isn't this the key to all our problems? Problems only we thinking human beings have?We "think and struggle to creat and suffer" when life is so simple and beautiful once we unwind ourselves and let go. Please contemplate on this.Letting go is the key to happiness, though I would not claim I have got over the kind of conditioning you mention in your poem that is my conditioning too.
@ balachanndran y & p. venugopaleeks! two comments, two extreme positions! fence is always safer, i find.
this is beautiful- did you write this?
anjuliyes. been going thru your posts- enjoying them
i think i and balan said the same, kpj. my comment is an elaboration of balan's 'just be,' isn't it? we are all at different levels of approaching the truth, that is all. and we have to touch the truth to know peace and happiness.
I kind'a hold that when we - as P Venugopal puts it, and to change but one word - "sniff the truth" have a duty to speak of it - metaphorically of course - to other ppl - perhaps then we can begin to be free and peaceful or as someone said 'just be'.
