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…..
