"People say nothing changes overnight, but I don't agree. Even a moment enough to change your life; and you don't even need any big thing to bring about this change. Anything works...a lightning, a thunderstorm, breeze kissing your face on a sunny day even; a drop of rain, or a smile of an innocent soul even; melodies of birds or tunes of the angels' harps even. Changes occur every moment, we just don't understand them. Everything you do, everything you think, everything you plan changes the world. Each of these things have their own importance, their own place in the hierarchy of existence! But imagine thinking about this without language. Can you think without language? There would have been no reality without language, but isn't it also true that there would have been no language without reality? But what comes first? Time it seems to stretch for eternity and all these things occur in it. What exactly is eternity? Can we really see it in a grain of sand, as Blake thought? What is time? Does time run faster than thoughts or do the thoughts determine its passage? What if a hundred years are to be contained in a minute, and a hundred such minutes in a second; a hundred such seconds again in a momeny and this single moment lasts only so long as it takes for you to wink your eyes?! All your lives and all your deaths, all your acts and all your deeds come and go in this one moment but it lasts for an eternity!
You live for this one moment, yet we say there is no such moment to live in; and when it comes to an end, you realise that it were your deeds which determined the length of this moment. Some make it last for a second, others stretch it for an eternity; while the others live as if they would never die, and then die as if they never lived!! As it comes to an end, you start realiseing the truths. Some awake at the right time, while others never drop their slumber. Whatever they do, one thing is for sure, the truth starts unfolding only when your time comes, not a moment before. You understand that you tried to run with time, but when reality was that there was no time to run with! You live as a slave of your ego, bragging about your achievements, showing off your deeds and acts, but when the truth was that there was nothing to be achieved and no you to achieve anything. We exist as a thought, and yet there is no mind to think us; we are bound by its imagination, but we are itself the one who imagines and the one who is bound in's too absurd to be real, but at the same time it is too complex to be real.
You never lived your life, you start realising...all you did was living with it!! You unleashed your vengeance on your enemies, but did you ever realise that you yourself are your friend and you yourself are your foe?! Hot or cold, water never changes, all that changes is the way your hand feels it, you start realising. You imposed senseless restrictions on yourself for no reaons, but you were never bound by anything; freedom was always yours, you simply failed to recognise it! You never realised the one ultimate truth...that there is nothing without you, and you are nothing without anything else! All you ever sought was always within you, you just had to search it!
Everyone's turn comes when your destiny reaps, soul's dreams start manifesting and your heart shows you the way. All you are supposed to do is to follow it!!!"

I can never forget these words of "WU"! Revelations at its best. Why then, I don't understand, do they discriminate and boast about trivial things? Well, that's why I believe they call it a game of chance, not everyone's chance come at the same time! I thought I should share them with all of you.

Nil Desparandum...Nosce te Ipsum...Et Curum!!
