But then again...

The last few posts I've been a tad too sceptical about the way we are, and it paints a pretty grim picture. But before you lose all hope, Believe me in this....All is not lost. It's just about how comfortable we're with these imperfections in our lives, and in our acceptance of them being real. The world is still a pretty great place. People still love to smile. Happiness still lies in the smallest things. A beautiful spring day still brings warmth to your heart. Cute lil' dogs still make me want to play with them. People still want to fall in love. We still feel that nothing beats the feeling of having your friends around. Home is still the best place in the world. Family still comes first. We still manage to grimace a smile at complete strangers. We still hate saying goodbye, and when we do we still hug and kiss. Kids still have idols to look upto. We still love getting back to mother nature. And we still love to be the nice guys. So it's not that bad....if there was no bad there'd be no good, right?? They just co exist, that's it....So enjoy your life, 'cause I don't know about heaven or hell..but this is real.

Sex, Power, Money and Lies...

" Sending The Devil to the angels, Jesus burns in hell."

The first time i read these words encrypted on the background wall in a Hellblazer comic book ( probably so that no one would really notice it in the background ), my first thoughts were that " God!! That is going to get the DC guys into some real trouble with the Vatican Semitics!!" But somehow those words just stuck in my head somewhere...and I look all around at the world and see that maybe it wasn't all that wrong. If you want to make your life really worth living, it's so-called bad forces you've to stick close to. The virtues can only take you so far, at a certain point you just have to live in sin.

Sex, power, money and lies....The four basic elements. The powers that rule us for all our lives, things that overshadow all in comparison. What would you give them up for. Love? Seriously, does anyone ever love anybody for their "inner beauty". Honestly, what's the first thing that you notice in a person you fall in love with..what's that first step to love. It's all about our carnal instincts at the matures later on. Happiness and peace of mind? Money will get your happiness...try bringing inner peace when you don't know where your next meal is coming from. Success?? Being in control, having the power is what gets you success..being in control of your mind and being able to manipulate others according to your will. Making other people happy?? Try being blatantly honest with every body you meet and let's see how happy they are..we all inevitably have to lie..

So maybe I'm a sinner, maybe I sold my soul. But atleast I preach what I practise....We all love the dark side and now we're addicted. Amen.

You think you know??

It's really strange the number of times we all can be wrong about the things we totally put our beliefs in, things we assume to be true with all heart..when in fact in the end they all just turn out to be lies, illusions we just made up according to our convenience, or worse still beliefs that were passed on to us, time tested to be true since eternity. And in the end they all turn out to be misquoted....nobody ever tells you about the strings attached..that there are certain conditions that apply.

People say that they know me, have known me all my life, know me inside out. And I can't even begin to tell you how often we are wrong when we say that. No one ever really knows a person except for that person. We've all got a good , a bad and an ugly side to us...but nobody but me can see them all, 'cause we all just put up a charade depending upon who we are with and where we are....adapting to the environment at it's best. Everybody who looks at me sees a different face, it's not my face that changes. It's what people have in their minds that changes the whole way in which they perceive me to be. They see what they think to be true, what they want to see...oblivious to the real me. So the next time you feel that you really know the people around you, think you really know??

Another thing we all blindly put our faith in is the concept of love....To fall in love head over heels, not caring about one's own self, just falling totally and completely in love with that one perfect person. Which is just about the biggest lie I've ever heard. Love is totally over rated. Falling blindly in love and giving your all to someone sounds real great...but only when the guys in Hallmark talk about it, 'cause for them love sells. Loving someone more than one's own self is the biggest illusion about love ever created. The only person you can love totally, without conditions, no matter what happens...can only be your own self, it can never be some one else. No matter what all those lovey-dovey songwriters say, from another person you'll always want something back. Real life love is just about how much you can stand each other, how much of each other's worst can you take and if you can even it out.....if you can like a person at their worst. If you think a girl still looks like the most precious thing on the earth on a day she's got a real bad cold and is totally dishevelled and is cribbing about it all day long... that's what I'd say love is about.

So next time before you really think you really know it all about something...just reach in deep in your mind and ask yourself if you really do know about it, or do you just think you know...

Looking at you...

I'm looking at you through the glass...
Don't know how much time has passed
It feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever
Feels like home sitting all alone inside your head

How do you feel?
That is the question
But i forget.. you dont expect an easy answer
When something like a soul becomes
Initialized and folded up like paper dolls and little notes
You cant expect a bit of hope
And while your outside looking in
Describing what you see
Remember what your staring at is me

Cause I'm looking at you through the glass...
Don't know how much time has passed
All i know is that it feels like forever
When no one ever tells you that forever
Feels like home, sitting all alone inside your head

How much is real?
So much to question
And never dare make up the mannequins
Contaminating everything
When thought came from the heart
It never did right from the start
Just listen to the noises(No more sad voices)
Before you tell yourself
Its just a different scene
Remember its just different from what you've seen

Im looking at you through the glass...
Don't know how much time has passed
And all i know is that it feels like forever
When no one ever tells you that forever
Feels like home, sitting all alone inside your head
