What do you Sea?

We all need that moment, when we want to be alone with ourselves, arguing, finding answers, trying to understand or maybe healing…

Sea is where I find my answers and sense of clam and clarity. I have never went to the sea and came back empty, I always feel light, relaxed and satisfied. And when I touch the water and walk barefoot it’s like everything has come to peace and there is nothing to worry about anymore, I can feel and see a glow on my face.

From time to time I do need Vitamin Sea.

I had a many pet turtles, what I like about turtles is that they can swim freely in the water, strong enough to protect themselves, harmless and quiet, but not bound to water only, they walk up the beach like they own it.

Though I despite their smell and how dirty they can be, but yeah no one and nothing is perfect, but we still find a way to live in harmony.

What I SEA is I find some missing pieces of myself and surrender myself to nature’s beauty. I believe the more we are near the nature the more calm and happier we are.

So What Do You Sea?

Reflecting on Four Years of Blogging

This blog post talks about me. I still feel like what I’m writing isn’t good enough, so I keep erasing sentences and re-write them and sometimes i miss out important points that I wanted to write because of that.

But i always write from my heart and I find that easier that following rules to attract readers. Because one a friend said “A message that comes from heart, reaches others hearts as well”

I really loved these quotes:

“I imagined that everything that was holding me back from being completely honest in my writing, was all stuck in my shoulders. So I shook my arms until I could feel the words exit through my fingertips.”

“I often say that blogging is like talking to yourself, and then realizing someone heard you. ”

“There are so many rules about how to blog, and what to write about, and how to present your thoughts. I try not to follow any of them – it’s just not me.”

The Captain's Speech

What if no one reads my blog? What if someone leaves me a really mean comment? What if I’m criticized? What if my ideas are only interesting to me? What if this blog is a mistake? What if I just go to sleep, instead?

Four years ago today, those were just a few of the questions that shook every bone in my body as I sat in my bedroom with the lights off, in the wee hours of the morning, and started this blog.

I think back to that moment quite a bit. It’s a good one.

At no point in my life did the thought of starting a blog ever cross my mind, until a few days before I actually did. As weird as it sounds, it felt like something I had to do. As if the universe was pushing me in that direction.

And I’ll be honest, most…

Do we really get what we want?

I have always had this question on my mind ” Do we really get what we want?”

How many times you wished to get something and got it? Wished to win a game and actually won it?

“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.” ~Dalai Lama

We have all been there many times in all sort of occasions disappointed or satisfied, but we never stop wishing, asking and wanting more.

Yet we always ask ourselves why it didn’t happen, but never wonder why it happened. I may not have the answer to this, but surely there are some questions we need to ask ourselves and find an answer for them.

Would the world be a better place if everyone could get exactly what they wanted whenever they wanted it? Do our desires help make up who we are so much that we would lose our sense of self without them?

Well there may be various answers to these questions, but I believe all the answers lead to one main idea that There is a reason behind everything and what ever happens, happens for good. Some may disagree that not everything that happens is for good, but again there is a reason for it to happen. Sometimes great lesson become from great disappointments.

Few years back I watched a video of “The Secret” then read the book. It accelerates ones understanding and mastery of the law of attraction. I disagree with many things that are written in it, but I do believe that out thoughts attract things to happen whether they are good or bad.

I have experienced it many times, if I keep thinking about something it happens immediately or after some time, or if I really wish for something it does come true. But not always. And when it doesn’t I surrender, because there a reason and I am sure it’s always in my favour.

Yes there was a time, when I had this feeling that I will have an accident, and kept thinking about it, not realising that I was attracting it or programming myself to make it happen. The day I thought I will change my route to avoid any possible accident, what i feared happened.

And there were times when I had a wish or dream and I forgot about, but it was still breathing inside of me, happened when it had to happen, one by one dreams started coming true and still are surprising me by their time of occurring.

Yet a great credit goes to our Will as well. Sometimes we have to work hard for it, and sometimes we get them as rewards regardless of our ambivalent thoughts.

There is always a reason behind everything. Our thoughts attract things to occur. Our will power helps to make them occur. And what ever happens, happens for good.
