Karma,The Secret, Truman Show

My interpretations of the above (short  gasp) The mind is playing games! 

Lots of times, its good fun to see unprecedented things happen as you please, on a regular basis. That's what I call being on the Truman Show. Incidentally, the Truman show is also one of my most favourite movies.

But these small things are fun, something to even brighten up your day or just keep you wide awake. The mind, my friend, does a lot more than just that. Sometimes, life altering decisions are made basis these events that you see or know. 

For example, when I am on my way to the park, I see a person wearing sneakers just like the ones I want. during that day, I also come across someone talking about them and an advertisement alluring me to get them. That's what you call being on the Truman show. 

In another example, one of my friends is seeing, hearing and thinking pregnancy. In her office, on the roads, on TV, in her home, other friends getting preggo. Its all over the place and its freaking her out!  Little does she know, its only because her mind is alert about that one topic and is taking over her life. Why else would she think that contraceptive pills are purposefully placed where they are at the chemist?

As you sow, so shall you reap. Moral science books are filled with it. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap- that's what the bible says. However, I prefer the modern day connotations- the law of attraction, the way it is explained puts you in complete action, to do something about, well, your actions. Incidentally, The Secret is also one of the most inspiring books I have ever read, for the sheer confidence with which it is written. 
Other phrases work when you realise you have done something you shouldn't have, and now its too late. It helps put a blame on the universe. Like the word 'Karma' (in the fake english accent). Its about something that you have already  done in the past, and now you're paying for it. You can't do anything about that now, can ya? Or like the Justin Timberlake song- What goes around, comes around. The origins of the proverb is unclear, but it may as well be from a non-preacher. On the other hand, 'life comes a full circle' has got an optimistic, familial tone to it. 

Thinking back, perhaps the bible version is right about as you sow, so shall you reap- because you sow an idea in your head, and your mind does exactly what you show it, it reaps! The mind decides to indeed play games with you, and creates your universe. You need to either be comfortable enough to live with it, or tame your mind to think what you want your universe to be. 
which links back to the law of attraction. 

Through our lives, we have been trying to tame our mind, and sometimes our mind tames our soul. And when those energies come together, it makes US unique.

The week after

So all the big occasions are over and done with- the last day to submit your investment papers, April fools day the world cup (yay!), and a rather long weekend. Guess people have gotten used to excitement.

No wonder I saw a crowd gather in the middle of the road crowding something big and tall. A little closer my rick goes and I see a huge elephant bang in the middle of the road shitting and peeing, to the awe of its spectators.
All this while I'm compulsively using my cell phone to chat up about office gossip. Now thats what you call full-on entertainment.

For the second half of my journey halfway through the city I took a bus. It was pure leisure. And you know what, the songs you listen to seem shorter when you are aimlessly spending time sitting by the window. On the other hand, when you need to reach somewhere quickly, it seems like the song is going on forever, just like the journey.

Days like this need to come more often, but they don't coz the holiday list on the softboard says that there are only 3 optional holidays available to you. Wait, maybe I'm not seeing it right; after all, the list is really really tiny. Wait is there a secret flipside to the list that has more holidays. Nope, just recycled paper!

Best part of the day: All the secrets in the air adding a tease element. Good fun!


Copy - paste and edit. That's all what life seems to be about. We copy what we aspire, what others are doing and we wish to do. We paste it into our lives. And then we edit- the struggle to find out what it is that really matters.

This blog is full of it. For all you guys who thought that I'm going to copy-paste other people's experiences and edit them out, you're wrong. I'm just too full of myself to do such a thing (anyone smirking?) So this is all about how I copy, paste and edit everyday experiences of my life, and for those people around whom my life revolves, i'll get a snapshot of our lives together.

Some work may be fiction, take it like an extension of my fact. But beware: some facts can really be wayyyy stranger of fiction, and I'm not going to categorize the two. Call it creative liberty. After all, I am part of the advertising family. (yea, one of those!)

I really hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it!
