Life

Longing For You

Haven’t I waited enough
Watching the ebb and flow
Understanding the pattern of time
Convincingly moving slow

Haven’t I longed enough
To get embraced
And, feel the magic
With each passing day

Haven’t I admired every bit
From the start till the end
From shore to horizon
Smiling endlessly to pretend

Take me with you now
To where I belong
Blend me in your blue
I’ve waited for long!! 🌊

Rock Beach, Pondicherry

Before Taking A Big Leap

Poetry | AppyTales | Anupriya Mishra

Hold on…

I’m busy in my world,
Admiring the sky, and
Waiting for the clouds to pass.

So that I feel,
The fresh sunshine, and
Glitter like a blade of grass.

Hold on…

Till I absorb the chaos,
Before I find my peace, and
Take a big leap.

To wander once again,
Only to find me, and
Get lost in the serenity.

So, Hold on!! 🥰

Five Things I Learnt From ‘Inner Engineering’ By Sadhguru

Book Review Inner Engineering by Sadhguru | AppyTales by Anupriya Mishra

Throughout while reading this book, Inner Engineering—A yogi’s guide to joy by @sadhguru , I was in a different zone. I was floating in a world of endless possibilities.

Sadhguru I feel has a very practical and logical approach towards life. He refrains from extreme drama and unnecessary emphasis on being overtly docile. We are humans and must be guided accordingly. Instead of expecting us to be all-forgiving and kind all the time which most life coaches suggest, he focuses on self-acceptance over denial. Transformations should happen by accepting the vulnerabilities one possess.

Here are the 5 things I learnt from the book:
✨Find joy within – Which means when you are in a pleasant inner state, you are naturally pleasant to everyone around you.
✨Do not blame your destiny – It’s a way to deal with failure. Instead, mould situations the way you want them.
✨Take responsibility- Realise that you are responsible for all that you are and all that you are not, all that may happen or may not happen to you.
✨Love is all about you – It has nothing to do with someone else. It is a way of being which essentially means you have brought sweetness into your emotion.
✨Yoga is the answer to all your questions – It is the science of being in perfect harmony and in complete sync with existence. It is not about being superhuman but realising that being human is super.

There is much more to the book than this and everyone who’s into meditation, self-transformation and introspection journey must read the book. The book also is a guiding light for those who seek the answer to questions related to life. It focuses on attaining limitlessness and how once you have attained that your journey towards transformation begins.

Another good part about Sadhguru is he keeps the audience (readers in this case) glued by giving real-life incidents and short stories inspired by life. It is extremely intriguing and relatable.

I am going to read more of Sadhguru. Let me know in the comments if you have read this book or recommend any other book by him. Leaving the Amazon link in bio in case you wish to buy this read.

What if I say…

Life is not always a throwback. You got to live in the present and plan for the future.

What if, I say I want to fly, would you give me that initial push I need;

Hold me close to only set me free.

What if, I want to touch the sky, would you show me the path I seek;

Hold my hand only to let me be.

What if, I tell you I want to deep dive into the meandering rivers;

Would you see me dive and swim away from you?

What if, I want to start all over again, would you ever understand;

And, leave me at a safe place.

What if, I want to reach the topmost peak and cry my heart out;

Would you still let me go without looking back?

What if, I want a life without the ifs, would you kiss away my worries;

And, let me fly without wings.

PS: The first part of this poem was written 9 years back https://anupriyamishra.wordpress.com/2013/08/09/fly-without-wings/

It’s a journey from then to now, a transformation, an evolution from a bunch of experiences that come calling

What does it take to be a woman of mettle?

On International Women’s Day 2021

Being a woman is certainly not in our hands. Of course, the chromosomes play a major role here. However, being a woman of the mettle is an option, so many of us strive hard to attain.

Being a gender-neutral person, I believe in celebrating humanity than a particular gender. Perhaps, also because I, fortunately, haven’t seen a world where women are seen to be dominated. Yet, I’m not unaware of the sacrifices, compromises, pain, physical differences and emotional sensitivity she undergoes in so many ways. This is what makes the journey of a woman remarkable. And, irrespective of what each of us does, we are all beautiful in our ways. Nothing can deprive us of being what we are. All it takes is putting that extra effort into the inherent strength that brings out the “woman of mettle’ we all are.

I have always believed in paving my path, and sooner or later convinced those who matter, to support me in my decision. Whatever you do and wherever you are, if you give your heart and soul to what you want to achieve you will outshine. If you haven’t been able to find that woman in you, the time is now. Because anyone can be a woman, it takes courage to be a woman of spirit, fortitude and substance. What would you prefer to be known as?
