In our darkest hour
February 26, 2011

“When the world comes to an end, this is what shall be played. Mankind, for a brief second will as one, look to the heavens. Some will pray, some will sing, others will hold the one they love, but for a single second in time we, as one will unite under the banner of stars that surround us. 12 billion eyes will focus, 12 billion eyes shall close and for eternity we shall be known as a mankind that when in our darkest hour we could become one and accept our place, but as one mind, one body one soul”

RaiFukuMaru

I found this comment on a video by Paul Collier on YouTube. I was deeply moved by Paul’s music. People think of making money in as many ways as possible, have a Lamborghini, A million $$ to spend and stuff like that. But what if in a while, all that’s never going to matter? What if the world is going to end tomorrow? Will the money matter anymore? Will the Lamborghini matter anymore?

If the world is going to end tomorrow, I shall remember what a random person in the world said. Though I’ve spoken against mankind many times in the past, when I read what Raifukumaru said, it wasn’t hard for me to imagine mankind joining their hands as one in their darkest hour, being there for each other , looking up at the sky. Though we’re born as one, and die as one, in that one last moment, what better way to die than to die knowing that 12 billion hands are holding yours. And what better way to die than to die knowing that “mankind that when in its darkest hour  could become one and accept its place, but as one mind, one body one soul”

And I’ll say to myself, “I’ve had one hell of a ride.”

Through the looking glass
February 23, 2011

Topic by Daily Post:

Daily post said : You can always write about how you write. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to become a writer. But, most importantly, I wanted to write. Honestly speaking, writing really made my Life worth living, made my Life interesting. After all, writing is another form of expressing. Through writing, I’ve learnt that you needn’t always use your voice to voice your opinion. I remember the first time I read “Alice in Wonderland” , I was 10 years old and even back then, the character of Mad Hatter fascinated me. Mad Hatter, to me, represented human emotions. Every time he put on a different hat, it seemed like he was expressing a new feeling. And I can remember how amazed I was because I was thinking “How come humans can express so many feelings?” That’s when the screen on my “looking glass” changed. I began to see things in a whole new perspective. Every time I faced an absurd situation in Life, I would pick up the book and just start reading it. And I think that’s what the book taught me. That’s what the story taught me. An absurd situation in your Life can help you gain more wisdom than a normal one.

So, every time I think of the characters in the story, that’s what inspires me to write. That’s what tells me that no matter how many surprises Life has in store for you- Good or Bad- if you look at it through the looking glass, you’ll find out that – Life is Wonderful.

“In a Wonderland they lie,

Dreaming as the days go by,

Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream-

Lingering in the golden gleam-

Life, what is it but a dream?”

— Lewis Carroll (Through The Looking Glass)

Smile

Topic by Daily Post :

When I’m feeling down and sad, I always listen to Michael Jackson’s “Smile”. Hats off to Charles Chaplin for writing such a beautiful song. I can honestly say that this is one song that makes me smile and cry at the same time. Songs like these have become quite rare in the music industry these days. Apart from a few good artists, what we hear today is computerized, studio-magicked, artificial voice stuff that makes one wonder whether you’re hearing the artist or the computer speaking. Coming back to the song, it always reminds me that I have more reasons to smile than reasons I have to cry. And I think that very few songs have that impact on you. They speak straight to your soul.

Smile, though your heart is aching

Smile, even though its breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You’ll get by

If you smile with your fear and sorrow

Smile, and maybe tomorrow

You’ll find that Life is still worthwhile

If you just smile..

Something I learned recently
February 15, 2011

Topic #46 by Daily Post

I’ve been busy the past two weeks but here I am again! It feels great to start blogging again.Hopefully, I will catch up with the posts I’ve missed out on. =) Something I learned recently was Forgiveness. There are times in everybody’s Life when you just can’t seem to forgive someone for something that they did. But I learned, by forgiving others, that forgiveness is a gift very few possess. I’ll keep this post short because, there is not much I can explain about forgiveness because it is better learnt when it is practiced. In short:

“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”

-Robert Muller

Cry
February 1, 2011

Somebody shakes when the wind blows
Somebody’s missing a friend, hold on
Somebody’s lacking a hero
And they have not a clue when it’s all gonna end

Stories buried and untold
Someone is hiding the truth, hold on
When will this mystery unfold
And will the sun ever shine
In the blind man’s eyes when he cries?

People laugh when they’re feelin’ sad
Someone is taking a life, hold on
Respect to believe in your dreams
Tell me where were you
When your children cried last night?

Faces fill with madness
Miracles unheard of, hold on
Faith is found in the winds
All we have to do is reach for the truth

And when that flag blows
There’ll be no more wars
And when all calls
I will answer all your prayers,
Show the world

You can change the world
(I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky
(Gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one
(I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
All cry at same time tonight

Michael Jackson

My iPod

Topic #31 by Daily Post:

One piece of technology I can’t live without is my iPod. I was watching “The Book of Eli” yesterday and I realized that music can help you survive even in the most horrible situations. I like music [who doesn’t?] and I know that I can survive without food and water if there’s music with me. Another piece of tech that I can’t live without is my mobile phone. It may prove to be very helpful, you know. I guess if I keep writing, the list will go on, so i’ll stop here :P

Music is what feelings sound like.
