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!”

First person vs Third person

Indian movies tend to always describe the hero as “I never get defeated” kind of a guy. “Bole toh apun toh galat ho hi nahi sakta, samne wale ki hi galati!” And the “saamne wala”, the villain, has to pay for his sins.

But does the same ideology apply to the life? Are we all the heroes and heroines of our respective lives in almost all the situations? Think about it….

We are taught to feel like the Dabangg heroes of our own lives and so, we lead it that way. In a way or so, we actually are, when it comes to working hard and achieving success. 

But what happens to us when we argue with others, is not desirable in a hero. We always see what we want to see but never prefer to see what’s right. Point of views may differ, but there are situations where we refuse to accept the justified and righteous thing. 

It is because we are the heroes and we are always right. That “heroic” sense is the first person. We perform actions and judge them in the first person. We miss out at the real definition of a “hero” But is it right? Ask me and I’ll say,” Not always, dear!”

SOLUTION:

Whenever arguing with someone or while pondering upon some important confusion in life, think of yourself as a third person, for a while. As if, your mind and soul resides in some other unbiased body, which is simply witnessing your life and is well aware of the concerned events. That state of mind results in one of the best decisions of life! 

People have forgotten to put their feet in the others’ shoes! They have forgotten to question themselves as follows:

  • What if the other person is right?
  • What if it’s my mistake? 
  • If it is, why am I afraid to accept it?
  • And if it’s not, how can I calm the other person down and make him realize the same?
  • What’s stopping me from being fair?

You got me right, QUESTION YOURSELF BEFORE QUESTIONING OTHERS! 

Hence, thinking as a third person makes you realize your mistakes and helps you in analysing your actions. Applying the analysis of “Third person view” (just like a third empire in cricket) into the first person character is the key to solving many of life’s problems.

The above image says it all..

Keeping calm and a thoughtful mind are not the signs of weakness, but that of wisdom. They’re a boon that allow you to analyse yourself, before you could act. That avoids mistakes in life and helps you in building a bold and regret-free character. 

Keys:

  • Prefer third person view over first and apply the conclusions on first person.
  • Questioning yourself for the sake of analysis is very, very important.
  • Keep your calm, for it lets you think!

Being a hero implies to analysing your mistakes and looking forward in mutual development in life. You don’t always have to prove the other person wrong, but believe in the unbiased right decisions. 

Strength lies in avoiding your mistakes in the first place and accepting and correcting them in the second. And not in loosing your temperament.

Mind of a Third person and implementation in the first person always win…
