Do you ever feel life? We see life. We live life. But do you ever feel the breaths you take?
Feel. As much as you can. As strongly as you can.
We’re all so caught up in the generalized norms and codes that coding has become a part of us. It’s a part of how we see, what we see, and what we choose to be. We let others decide for what makes us look better and voila! The decision is made and we feel good because we are accepted.
Hey, listen. Don’t get into the complications. Everyone would only know what’s better for them, and to give them the privilege of having a say in yours just makes them feel better about themselves. We’re all just a bunch of humans wanting to simplify everything in the process of complicating it. Like if you say, it’s all for a purpose and there’s a purpose to life. Hold it right there! Why? Why does there have to be a purpose to life? Life is in itself a purpose, it’s the very purpose in fact. Don’t try to find reasons in life, instead find life in every reason.
Sleep under the stars. You’ll realise that for that instant, you’re not chasing something, you’re not hustling, the stars, they’re everywhere, for that moment, you’re just you. Walk the trails that have fascinated you everytime you drove past them. Feel the infinite and explore it.
I’ve always heard from people that being under the sky, or anyplace where nature embraces you, they feel small, just a tiny fraction of the world. I’ve always felt something else. I’ve always felt like I’m a part of it, and you don’t compare the part with the whole, the whole that comprises of it. I’ve always felt belonged. And everything apart from that seemed small, every worry, every question, every answer.
Get real in your own skin. Don’t become an ‘otherwise’. Do things on impulse. Follow your intuition. Listen to what your mind has to say and follow your heart. Stargaze. Swim. Fly. You don’t have to be anyone or everyone you see. You just have to be. And don’t set standards for how being is. Be, however you want to. Explore all that you want to.
Feel beautiful, and it won’t matter how pretty you appear to the world. Don’t go looking in your closet to find what makes you look good, go exploring in your soul to find what makes you feel good. It’s kind of ironic, you really don’t have to add stuff or achieve something to be happy, most of the time, you just have to get riddance from everything that keeps you from it.
In a world that asks you to dream big, I ask you to dream more. In a world that asks you to achieve, I ask you to eliminate. In a world that asks you to be different, to be better, to be above, I ask you to be you.
In a world where everyone wants to live and feel above, I ask you to live beyond, BEYOND CONVENTIONS.
Strip yourself bare till you feel closer to stars than to goals, till you feel life becoming a part of you and not just you becoming a part of it, till you have more feelings than words to express them. Strip yourself till you feel energy in your soul and rawness in your bones. Strip yourself off of everything till you feel raw. Till you feel belonged in your own skin, and aligned with your own soul.
