diary of a travel freak (II)

25.03.2012
I hate Ends.. I hate when journeys end, the fact that now I will have to continue with the same monotonous routine life scares me.. I wish I could my entire life as a traveller, travelling, exploring..
Another journey will end in a matter of few hours, and I am already worried as to what all is pending and what all needs to be done.. If only I could press the Pause button..

diary of a travel freak!

the more I travel the more I realize how ignorant I am and how little I know.. The vastness of the ocean, its dept, its violence, its calmness, amazes me.. I wish I could be some what like it, i wish I could imbibe its myriads hues in me..

They call the wind Maria..

They call the wind Maria

Away out here they got a name
For rain and wind and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire Joe,
And they call the wind Maria

Maria blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a’flyin’
Maria makes the mountains sound
Like folks were up there dying

Maria
Maria
They call the wind Maria

Before I knew Maria’s name
And heard her wail and whinin’
I had a girl and she had me
And the sun was always shinin’

But then one day I left my girl
I left her far behind me
And now I’m lost, so gone and lost
Not even God can find me

Maria
Maria
They call the wind Maria

Out here they got a name for rain
For wind and fire only
But when you’re lost and all alone
There ain’t no word but lonely

And I’m a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me
Maria blow my love to me
I need my girl beside me

Maria
Maria
They call the wind Maria

Maria
Maria!
Blow my love to me...

I feared..

I feared..

I feared being alone Until I learned to like Myself.. I feared failure, Until I realized that I only Fail when I don't try..
I feared success Until I realized that I had to try in order to be happy with myself..

I feared UNTIL..
 I feared pain Until I learned that it's necessary for growth..
I feared people's opinions Until I learned that people would have opinions about me anyway.. I feared rejection
Until I learned to have faith in myself...

Until I saw the beauty of the Starlight. I feared the Light, Until I learned that the Truth would give me Strength. I feared Change, Until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a Metamorphosis before it could Fly..

I feared ridicule Until I learned how to laugh at myself.. I feared growing old, Until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.. I feared the future Until I realized that Life just kept getting better.
feared the Truth, Until I saw the ugliness in Lies.

I feared Life Until I experienced its Beauty. I feared Death, Until I realized that it's not an end, but a Beginning..
feared the Past, Until I realized that It could no longer Hurt Me...
I feared my Destiny, Until I realized that I had the Power to Change my life. I feared Hatered, Until I saw that it was nothing more than Ignorance..

I Feared UNTIL…..

I feared being alone
Until I learned to like Myself.
I feared failure
Until I realized that I only Fail when I don't try.
I feared success
Until I realized that I had to try in order to be happy with myself.

I feared
People’s opinions
Until I learned that people would have opinions about me anyway..
I feared rejection
Until I learned to have faith in myself.
I feared pain
Until I learned that it's necessary for growth

I feared the truth
Until I saw the ugliness in lies.
I feared life
Until I experienced its beauty.
I feared death
Until I realized that it's not an end, but a beginning.
I feared my destiny,
Until I realized that I had the power to change my life.
I feared hate
Until I saw that it was nothing more than ignorance.
I feared love
Until it touched my heart, making the darkness fade into endless sunny days. I feared the past
Until I realized that It could no longer hurt me.

I feared ridicule
Until I learned how to laugh at myself.
I feared growing old
Until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.
I feared the future
Until I realized that Life just kept getting better.
I feared the dark
Until I saw the beauty of the starlight.
I feared the light
Until I learned that the Truth would give me Strength.
I feared change,
Until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a Metamorphosis before it could fly..

Birds of a feather flock together.. Literally!

It was just another regular day and then a friend of mine invited me for a coffee. What started as casual talk-of-the-day ended up into something serious and we started discussing philosophical things like 'importance of being Yourself', 'Taking time out for Yourself', etc.. And believe me my day ended on a better note! It was then I realized that sometimes its refreshing to be in company of people who think like you do. For a person like me its sometimes(most of the times!!) difficult to find somebody who thinks like me so I appreciated this small but meaningful talk with him..
The day has almost ended, nothing to look forward to except dinner(!!) Lets see what the next day has in store for me..

"Me"

I am Not me anymore.. I am what I thought I was Not Am I a reflection of what He wanted to see.. Am I what She thought I would be.. Am I...
