Midnight Musings - Walking Dust

I woke up...

I dont know where I was.
I started looking around me.
I was sitting near a fire on a beach.
It was night and looked like it was about to rain.

I could feel...

Escaping Embers & Crackling Fire
Humming Waves & Cricket Noise
Approaching Storm & Thundering Clouds
Fading Stars & Cool breezes

It was all pleasant & beautiful...

I stood up and started walking, with a torch.
I turned back and could see my footprints.
They were eventually erased by the waves.
I was walking towards a dark forest.

I could see monkeys restlessly shrieking,
Even in the stormy and dark night.
What could be more restless than these?
Probably my mind, because it's restless even when I`m asleep.

I found a large cave and entered it.
It started raining heavily just after that.
There were all sorts of scrambled pictures & fuzzy stories,
Carved onto the wall of that cave.

Some of those felt familiar.
Some of those were old & fading away.
I thought that the cave can only endure ones that are deeply carved.
Just like my memories that are strongly etched into my heart.

I suddenly heard a sound, I looked around.
I felt something hit my ankle.
With the help of the torch, I tried to see what it was.
It was a snake, and I realized, It bit me.

I just stood there shocked. I gradually collapsed.
But I didn't feel any pain. Instead, I felt high and I realized couldn't move.
I was completely immersed in that state.
Surprisingly I wanted it to last for some more time.

I was becoming sleepy and about to go unconscious.
In those moments I thought why didn't I do anything after I got bit.
Maybe I was stumped out by an altered state so much, I was ignorant.
Just like one sinking in desire and realizing it only at the very end.

Suddenly I felt... nothing.
It was like I was... dead.
I could not see, hear or feel anything.
Where am I? What I have become? What I was before this?

Then there was a light & I understood I was that light.
In that light I realized. I was previously just a Walking Dust.
And now I'm just dust.
And there is no need to walk again If I understood this. 

And then I really woke up... from my dream. It all was just a dream.
Was it a nightmare or a good dream? I wondered!.
And it was neither of them.
I realized It was just a glance of truth.

I'm just Walking Dust, awake or in a dream.

What`s the Point?

Here`s the point : "A point is a fundamental notion , which describes an absolute position in a defined   space . It does not have any particular intrinsic meaning but is used as a reference within the context of a defined space . A point can be seen as a zero-dimensional entity". Breaking down the above statements to understand the idea of a point in a defined space, we need to understand what is a defined space. A defined space consists of various points and the  arrangement between the points. And that defined space can be anything. We can consider the universe as the defined space, spanning in all directions indefinitely. Imagine a string of beads. Here, if we consider that each bead does not have any intrinsic property like shape, length, width... etc, i.e each bead is a point. As they are arranged in an order, each bead describes the absolute position(i.e order) of that particular bead in the context of the above-defined space. You can learn more about vario

The Purpose

  The sun was just about to set. I reached just then. I got down from the car and walked to the river. I kneeled down and put my hand in the water. The water in the river had a little warmth because it was a sunny day. I sat down there, waving my hand for some time. It was so good, I hoped the time stopped then and there. Then I thought, my hand was feeling the experience of water. Irrespective of which part of the river I put my hand in, the experience will remain mostly stay the same. If I enter the river and swim, then my experience would become more vivid and significant. If I submerge myself completely underwater then the experience of water around me becomes everything. Hypothetically, just imagine because of my sheer desire to stay there I obtain the ability to breathe and live underwater. I would probably choose to explore further rather than swim back to the surface. I will start imitating any creature I would find living in that water. Slowly I will learn a movement of my own

Midnight Musings - One True Desire

I still have a lot of questions. But it all boils down to just this. I`m a conscious being and what would be the one thing I truly desire. That's all that matters. Someone may ask me, Why only one desire? Because I am driven by desire. And it's hard to quench my thirst for any desire absolutely. I pretend to be satisfied. But in the deepest corners of my heart, when I try to find the answer, I don't know if I am!. I may be convincing myself and others around me that I am!. So then comes the question, Can I be ever truly satisfied with what I have?. And why there is a need to be? That's an interesting question!. To understand, Let me get into discussing more ideas of desire in my words. Desire can be compared to being in quicksand. When you give in to the quicksand, you will slowly engulf yourself in it. This is what is happening within me, I hold no control over my desires, but when I don't fight them, I slowly sink in. But, let us say, I want to get out of it. The
