One of the things that I find myself pathetic at, when it comes to expressing it out live. Have suffered so many times now that, it had become mandatory “to express” it out here now.

Expression. Conveying your thought, mindset or some message through one or the other medium is named as expression. Well, that was its formal side. But is it actually so?

Think about it.

As humans, we are blessed to have emotions, along with the possession of the languages to portray them. Irrespective of the emotion, be it sorrow or happiness, be it anger or pacification. Be it thankfulness or any other that is meant to be stated by the heart, it has to be expressed.

As I mentioned above, “…meant to be stated..” Yes, we all have emotions, but only few exist to be kept within. But, when to express them then? Emotions were never meant to be buried within the heart. It makes it heavy for the person to live with it! We all have faced it innumerous times.

Expression is very important! Else, it itself makes the existence of that emotion futile! No doubt we all have certain emotions to be kept to ourselves only due to the existence of our insecurities, but if we are so uncertain of the arrival of our end, what makes us keep that inside? What makes the point of hiding the emotions?

Expression is the way out. It lets you out whatever lies inside. The medium doesn’t matter, what does is the purity and lack of adulteration till it reaches the person or thing it is meant to be.

Art forms stand out to be a perfect medium of letting out one’s imaginations. Be it anything! From painting, dancing to modern art and music! They give us the colours to portray ourselves inside out, with zero hesitation and feel the freedom of life. It sets us free from what actually restricts us, binds us.

Once you are through with the Expression, you are free from its degradation within and feel lighter than ever!

In my case, its music. Be it any mood, any colour of the reality being observed, any contrast that dwells within, music is the perfect medium for me to let that instantaneous hue of life out and get free from it. I feel it more, I listen to or sing the songs accordingly and get my fix. The musical notes of nature and frequencies coincide with that of mine, as if they create a person himself who’s there to share the conflicts, the pain or the happiness. Doesn’t it happen with you too?

You get to experience the abstract of others’ lives through those frequencies. Even the monotonous nature varies from person to person, depicting one’s state of mind. You get to know one’s sufferings, one’s experiences, one’s dilemmas and one’s learnings, which can be shared in that way!

Credit for all this goes to expression. Had the person not let it out, it would have corroded the soul from within. There are certain stages where they eat you inside out and leave nothing behind. What would you prefer, convey the feeling meant to be? Or let it have you…

When none appears around, it’s the expression of that feeling in one or the other way around to find your fix. No matter what it could be, no matter how intense its effect may be, it has to be let out one or the other day. So why not be it today, where even the very next breathe is haunted by uncertainty?????

And you see, the musicians, actors, dancers, painters, writers etc., are the people who have been successful in life, as they sought the perfect fix for their emotions to be expressed in the right direction! They paved the ways out and used that sense of being true to themselves so beautifully that it created their big names to be remembered forever. It not only shaped their careers, but helped them live a life less ordinary. That’s pretty fascinating!

Be it speech, texts, pictures, paintings, gifts, music, fitness or any other worst of all kind of a medium, that defines you the best; just take it for a weapon and let it out. It’s now or never. And better make it now, for the gift of life is meant to be lived, not let go in vain…..

Let the Artist LIVE “PASSIONATELY”

Life is all about passion. We’ve heard this statement a million times from our elders, let it be our parents or cousins. But are we actually aware of it? And if “luckily” yes, are we doing anything about it? 

Think about it…

“Beta, Padhle, inn sabse kuchh ni milna! Ban ja kucch!”

One or the other time, we have heard this statement from our parents. But is it so? To some of the extent, YES and to some, it isn’t! 

Academics is a mind game itself. Either you are knowledgeable enough to make it a child’s play. Or you study smart to score well. But in both the situations, you use your brain! And for brain to function in its best efficiency, it needs to be happy! That work or any verb that gives you That “much needed” happiness is PASSION.. 

Every other mind on Earth is programmed to do something that the other cannot do. We just need to pick that thing and work upon it to create the uniqueness and call ourselves as successful. 

 Art is very important. I myself lost the musician in me amidst the race of marks and have not been able to fetch marks either! (Atleast presently 😋 ) All of that is my fault alone! We all are the culprits of the artist who dies inside, if we do not nurture him by practising the art he loves……… 

Our society needs to get the above statement! Every Art in every human being is a gift of nature, a blessing! We need to listen to him and devote some part of our time everyday to it. 

If you paint, portray your heart’s desire everyday! If you sing, practise and nurture yourself like there’s no other voice in the world to match yours! If you dance, dance till your very last breath! And after you’ve put every other breath to your passion, you’ll discover that it becomes the very reason for your existence. It gives you innumerous breaths to “live” and justify “living”.

Just a small caution: Your passion should not hurt anybody else, instead, it should  act as a life-giving medicine to others’ lives and enlighten them..

Take that musical instrument out today to rejoice the musician inside you; pick that brush again and stroke it against the blank canvas with the colours of your thoughts; in short, Start living again.. Practice the art that you’ve been blessed with..

Trust me, if you follow your passion from your heart, “Mummy bhi maan jaengi!” 😉 

Of course academics are important to earn a living (as taught by our system 🙈) But you have to be a multi-tasker, if you want to LIVE. Then that “busyness” won’t be a struggle, it’ll give a goal to you and a reason to make the days count. 

As they say,” Don’t count the days, make the days count!” 

And 

“Stop thinking and talking, Start doing!”
