Who says that the past is not important?

I know that people tell us to look towards the future and live for today and … oh so many things. The past is looked upon as a really bad bad thing.

Everyone says that may 2014 be answer to your dreams. What does it actually mean? Didn’t the same people wish the same wish in 2013, How did 2013 become so bad suddenly? When I opened FB on 1st jan, I felt 2013 was looked upon as a reason for failure and everyone hoped 2014 would do wonders. Though I don’t want to admonish this childlike spirit but why not leave some love for the past year?

The past is just as important as the present and the future. Why and how is it not? When you are sad, doesn’t some past memory come beside you to lift you a little and if you realize its important, you see that there are so many achievements in the past that each issue that you came across was faced in some way and that till now, all things have been well. There has been a reason for everything, every word and every feeling. Every so called disaster and every so called reason for your tears.

Please don’t let go of the past completely. I know this is opposed to the wisdom you get, but think about it. The past has made you who you are. People from your past must have gone, but their memory remains. They remain with you. They remain in their teachings and in your memory. The memories do comfort you and warm you when you need it. So, embrace everything from your past. Embrace the things that you thought are bad, smile as you realize that they ended up for the best and do Keep smiling.

On this note, I do wish you a very happy new year. I hope that the lives continue to fill with love, smiles and His grace.

The creator understand the creation

I was looking at an accomplished photographer’s pictures on FB. What was so special about his pics that I didn’t have? This comment kept pricking me with every new photo and was probably pricking because there was a stage in life when I too wanted to be a photographer.

I had sent pics to national Geographic and other contests that I found online but nothing got published anywhere but in my google album.

I think the desire was there since a long time but increased after I saw the movie Wake up Sid

I liked clicking pics but with time, I realized that I was the only one who liked or understood and appreciated my pics.

Now that I think about it, I remember my uncle showing me some pics in his camera. I was feeling bored because he had clicked his son in the garden but in different poses and his wife at home on the sofa in different poses and with few other people.

So, my realization and the point of writing about all this is that only the creator can truly understand the creation. For my uncle, the physical form of love is his family. He captured it and was happy to show and share it with others. I obviously don’t and can’t feel the same amount of love that he does for them.

Similarly, the photographers capture what they love and love what they capture. It is not necessary for others to understand or follow. You were not there. You don’t know the background. You don’t know what else was there to be clicked. Why the angle, Why the.. and y the…whatevers

It is like modern art or many other art pieces we see. We see and try to figure out the specialty. The little creative part of me always questions – What is so special about it? I could paint it. I also know that I don’t understand art. But how can I? I don’t know the history or reason. I am sure that every piece has a story that only the painter really understands and it is difficult to express and share.

The potter knows how weak we are. The potter knows in mud we mire

So my point also is for everyone who feels that they don’t understand themselves or for my friends who think that others don’t understand them.

How can they?

How many people truly know your history. I had read some place that the longest relationship you will ever have is with yourself. So don’t be angry or upset if you think others don’t understand you. I hope you can be rest assured that your creator surely has a purpose of creating you and does understand you.

Keep smiling!

PS – I wonder what my artist friends have to say for this.

 

Facebook

I was in the train one early morning and someone asked too all of us standing – which way matunga would come. She asked it all who were standing.

A flash of facebook ran across me. What exactly happens on FB? Imagine you are sitting in a full room. Someone yells something. A few people respond and then someone else yells something.

I know the whole world is crazy about facebook and most of them are such addicts that they prefer checking their page to brushing their teeth…but I find the concept a little odd. I can’t spend more than 5 to 10 minutes on it. Yes this is a way to stay connected and my art gets sold because of this to an extent but the whole concept is a little odd na?

Things that don’t make sense – Part 7

It’s been a long time since i wrote about things that didn’t make sense to me… I think that my thinking stage is back 😛

Facebook has these pages…

I get the biggest smile when i see your name come across my phone(:

Ignoring someone you wish you didnt have to but knowing its for the best

People that are MEANT TO BE TOGETHER, always find a WAY 😉

Either stay in my life or get out of it. Stop changing your mind.

Dont tell me you love me, especially when youre telling someone else too,

why make the effort to get me if u wont make the effort to keep me

You have no idea how much i really care about you.

No matter how mad I am at you.. I STILL wanna talk to you ❤

What doesn’t make sense to me…these people who have these on their facebook profile obviously want to say it to someone. Y don’t they say it?

What is love without communication? In fact, where is love without communication? Is there a point in having these pages up? it is so sad …such a waste of time.

This sure scares me. i really hope love is different…
