Look, we’ve found it, the moment our souls recognized each other…across space and time.
The physical distance between us seeming like fleeting moments, we came to be.

Against all that we had been taught, we let go of each other..and we belonged without owning.
You lit up my nights with stars, even the cloudiest ones.. my mornings felt yellow..warm and fuzzy like sunshine..
your smile..like marshmellows in hot chocolate! 🙂

Not wanting to ask for anything, all I ended up wanting was to be an exception in your life. That one beautiful experience that not only stood out, but the one that made all the difference. And you gave me that. Without so much as a passing thought, you surrendered.
My here and now shifted to where you are..in the future.

Now I have one life…to taste, touch, feel, love, sin, breathe, devour, melt, lose, give in, blend, burn.. And I have one miracle, you…

So today, I will not run. I will sit down, hold your hand in mine..and let you hold my heart in yours. Coz I want you to be me ..in my sorrows, in my joys, in my moments of ecstacy and desperate loneliness..I want you to be the witness to my life.
Coz with you, I’m home.

Ever felt humbled by the vastness of the ocean?… ever felt so at peace that everything seemed perfect?… ever felt insignificant under the starry sky on a clear night?…ever known someone with whom, the joy is so overwhelming that words were insufficient?

Yes! 🙂 It’s in moments like these that we truly live. Moments when you know from within that there is unlimited joy to experience (even though your logical mind might want to fight that thought!) You can still feel it, it’s a feeling of completeness, of just being.

But more often than not we are busy waiting…when life is already happening 😛 We have too many rules, too many conditions that limit us from experiencing bliss. We want things ..but we want them a certain way, at a certain time and only from certain people, why?

We have this habit of labeling a source and putting so much pressure on it to deliver, that sometimes we exhaust ourselves and everyone else! Instead, if you allow it, an emotion can come from any source, so long as it doesn’t harm or damage anything or anyone.

 

Joy is still joy. It may vary in degrees or the kind that we feel, from satisfaction to pleasure to ecstasy!  Like the heart melting joy, the unconditional love of my two year old niece brings to the nostalgic bliss I shared with a friend as we spent all night exchanging music from our childhood over an online chat!

Happiness is everywhere. It can be the delirious kind, an awe-inspiring moment or even just a smile. It’s upto you. It’s upto you if you want to feel it at all.

It was a very liberating experience for me when I learnt to look for joy in everything that I did and everyone that  I met 🙂 I realized how much I had missed, and decided not to miss out anymore. My niece reminds me that time shouldn’t be wasted..every single day! She comes to you and asks you for something, once, twice. If she doesn’t get it, she moves on to someone else in the house and repeats. Lol.

You might say that it isn’t as simple for us grownups though. But, trust me, you ll be amazed! Life is actually quite simple. And it is true what they say…what you seek is what you find! If you just open your mind and seek only joy..you will find a million sources that bring a million moments overflowing with joy! And those million will grow into a million more.

And when you find that one moment where it feels so good that you can’t stop smiling…. step outside of yourself and acknowledge it!

Make it a memory…coz you have just lived!
