Introspective glances

Standing perpendicularly beneath the sky, one feels neatly aligned to every celestial body in a straight line, but the end points of such a connection are countless. Similarly, engaging in an introspective exercise, based on the process of life, is also an endless pursuit with unlimited outcome! Such is the world of possibilities in the realm of the absolute!

It doesn’t help to go to sleep and toss aimlessly from one corner to the other in the pursuit of that easy exercise which you are deemed to engage in, supposedly with near-perfect ease! The mind, it is said, needs to attain a certain equilibrium before slipping into a state of clean surrender at the close of day, allowing the subconscious to perform that routine exercise which is meant to calm the system. But, aren't systems supposed to become dysfunctional at equilibrium? Or so, I read some place!

Introspection, thus, as I have learnt, needs to be limited only to that aspect of what can be done in the context of what was not done better on a previous occasion. If you give the process a degree of liberty more than what is deserved, then facing the peril will also be a responsibility you’ll automatically have to shoulder.

Mean minds like mine can play power games with itself and it's owner, without either of them realizing that they are being tricked in the process. So how do you rein in the brat?

Now, is that my mind speaking to me or otherwise?

Jackrabbit woes!

Footnotes:

Not to worry! This one is a product as a result of my inability to fall a sleep on a rare occasion. Having faced with the situation, I tossed myself up, following the advice of a spin-doctor, and pronto - the product is a grey configuration with shades of black and white! Abstract at best, presumably!

  2. You're very serious
    in this post ;)

    To exercise at or near capacity
    is the best way I know
    of reaching a true introspective state !!
    If you do it right,
    it can open all kinds of inner doors :-)

    (Vimmuuu has a funny comment... :-)

  3. For Sure mate! Abstract at its best..! For a moment I thought I was somewhere else... LOL
    Although some parts need a little explaining to do, nevertheless, we have a lotta time to discuss I guess.

    Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant, there is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.

    Have a Good-Day Mate!

  4. I found this beyond my imagination. As a afterthought what one has not done at that time appears to better than what has actually happened. Forget it.

  20. Indeed DI! That thing of feeling clever and a wisecrack is a facade, one that the ego creates!
