Be A Purple Cow

Be A Purple Cow

“WRITERS used to make such wonderful pictures without all that swearing, all that cursing. And, now it seems that you can’t say three words without cursing. And I don’t think that’s right.” – Ernest Borgnine

YOU BLOCKED ME A LONG, LONG TIME AGO. But why? Why are you still lingering behind me?

Why do you keep following me like my own shadow on the broad daylight?

Why do you always love what and who I love?

Why do you still care to browse my page and get hurt in the process?

Why do you love staying near me? Please stay away from me!

Why do you read everything I have to write when you winced painfully afterwards? Please don’t put your good nose on it.

Why don’t you stay away from me and live the life that you want to? Do your own thing and be happy about it.

Why don’t you stop chasing?

Why do you love comparing yourself to me? What happiness you get from it?

Why don’t you water your own plants and stop looking at my garden?

Why don’t you keep your nose where your damn business is?

Why you have to worry within? That, life seems a long worry for you.

Why don’t you be a purple cow?

Why don’t you just sit on your rocking chair and think of the good things in life rather than lamenting on your previous relationship breakdown and uncertain future? Then, start swearing words in the wrong place.

Do you remember what Confucius said? “There is no need to talk about it. It is certain that you will die then lying in your grave for eternity; you can think whatever you want to think. Why bother me? I will be thinking in my grave; you will thinking in your grave.”

Hitler trigger the hatred in the minds of Germans with his many words while Martin Luther King Jr. inspired love in millions of people with his words. And, did you ever hear about what Mother Teresa said? “Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.”

You cannot change the past. You cannot change the fact that you’ve once picked a stone and hit it so hard on your own head. You’ve inserted yourself in between people and when you felt being crushed in between them, you started swearing on the air. You cursed because of pain- the pain of being the OTHER WOMAN, then your hatred occupied all the spaces in your heart. Those moments you had were just borrowed ones.

Nothing stays in this wicked world- everything passes. So, please:

Don’t hold grudges. Try loving what Buddy Hackett had to say, “I’ve had a few arguments with people but I never carry a grudge. You know why? While you’re carrying a grudge, they’re out dancing.”

Don’t chase. What meant for you will always be yours, remember that always. Stop chasing the wind to stay alive.

Don’t curse. Those who pray for other’s downfall don’t usually notice that the ground they are standing at is slippery and it could lead them to their downfall.

Keep looking around. Try something else. Something new. Something different.

Fall in love. See the beauty in most of the people whom you meet halfway.

Don’t waste your time hating people. Hate is a useless feeling. It’s like the cold lakes of Armenia. The cold lakes in Norway.

Make yourself special. As Ian Wallace said, “Why are you trying so hard to fit when you were born to stand out? Be true to yourself. Love yourself. Make yourself special but not ordinary.

Be original. Don’t imitate. Original is worth more than just a copy.

Don’t worry about the people in your past. As the saying goes: “Don’t worry about the people in your past. There’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.

Be brutally and shamelessly honest with yourself. Think of the people you have permanently lost but without pain. If you can’t stop swearing that people will be miserable with their lives then, I’ll leave the swearing with you and I’ll just go out dancing and enjoy a happy life somewhere!

You know what? I never forced love. I let them go to hell and get burned out there! You should try it sometime.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood?

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

Be A Purple Cow

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Be A Purple Cow

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
