Fake Reality


Why is it that often a person's worth is felt only after they're gone?
Why do we gather so many materialistic needs?
What of these bonds when at the end of this life you can take none with you?
What's the purpose of this life when it's really only an illusion?
Where do people go when they die?
When will people learn to say nothing if they don't have anything good to say?
Why is it that tears are sometimes just not enough?
Is life always beautiful?
If there's also emptiness then what's so full about life?
Where is my home?
Why do people follow often and not lead?
Do I have a meaning?
Is God a mean guy who takes the good ones early?
How do people somehow move on after someone is gone forever?
Is selfishness the only real survival trait in humans?
What is so great about life when it can end in a second?
What am I earning for?
If I die young what of all the things I wanted to be?
Why do I feel so much pain?
Why do I feel that everything is just so fake?
Why cant I move on?
What are we looking for?

hemm...alot of questions dear...but the answers are connected.

Legacies are what we leave for the generations to pick up and improve. So our life is improvement, just like evolution. IF we manage to see enough and touch enouhg of creation, then we can satisfy the needs of our brain which is to observe and analyse the life.

When someone is alive, they are humble.

We need materials because we are improving rather than ignoring. But too much of anything is bad. Discard the excess. Thats the best. Be humble.

Bonds...you leave for the new ones you create, new ones u inspire. let them continue your legacy.

life is an illusion because anything tangible must face pain. And pain comes when we dont understand. And when we understand, then life is real.

When we die, we are recycled. In every way possible. only the legacy remains.

People wont shut up until the mouth evolves out of the need. somethings moves, people talk, the universe moves every second, so people talk.

Tears are temporary to show people you are human, the heart carries the heavies burdens.

Life has never been anything else than beautiful, but human emotions fluctuates.

Life is never full, thats why we die, people are born, the legacy continues. When people say a full life, that means they did not dream enough.

Your home, is your heart and mind. Nothing else.

People follow so the blame doesnt fall on them. People follow to learn and to help the leader when he falls.

Yes you have a meaning, the meaning is in your actions, your feelings ans your touch. Your answer to life.

God is a neutral guy, who'd ratehr let us work out things. When we reach him, he reaches us, but not so often, because I guess he is improving also.

People move on ebcause there are new ones to live for, to answer to. BEcause the ones who leave will be there in the minds forever.

Selfisness are temporary, a survival instinct. Survival's true proponent is understand and team work. And family.

Life is not great, its just one of many. Its divine because we can think.

You are earning for your achievments.

If you die young, hopefully someone else carries the torch. if you have many wishes, you wont die young, but if you do, then you will be born again to fulfill it.

Pain is just the universe asking you questions, finding out whether you are ok. Pain is because you can feel. Pain is because you can talk and cry.

Nothing is fake, they are made to look such by people who dont share their lives.

You can move on, just that you havent found the place...

We are looking for answers. That keeps us busy. We are looking for love and belonging.

Aditi said...

Some good questions.. but i think the answer differs for each one.. and discovering the answers is the purpose of the journey of life aint it.

Iris said...

hi there,
After i heard the news about steve i almost cried.. and that is a first for me... I wrote a post... then i thought a lot.. nothing coherent..asked all that you have asked here.. and perhaps more.. or perhaps less..
This morning i came back and removed the post...why?
I dont know the answer for that either.

I will miss him for sure.

Iris said...

BTW, that last comment was by me. I needed a blogger account to comment here.. so i used that account.

Trust, Keshi, trust.

Mr. J said...

Lots of questions there..

LERA said...

Hi ,I literally gave into your trivia..Looking for a deeper Meaning of Life .A quest, which Pervades every dimension of life..for ultimate Meaninfulness!if it's there..:)

uagain said...

Yeah Keshi... You are abolutely right...
First question... really hurts me.. Tears are not enough.... at many Places..
Life is beautiful..???.. Dont ask me..

May be I am Negative...

May be You like the Pain in ur inner.. may be you are controverse.. It may be some thing like.. instead going towards the succes.. some people like to ponder to look at "the way of success"..

samuru999 said...

Keshi my dear
So many questions!
But, only you have the answers.
As, we all carry within ourselves the answers about life and what life means to us.

I believe there are two absolute
certaintities in this life.... death and change.

And among those two things we fill up our days with all the other things that add meanning to our lives....

Things like love and wonderful people (and unfortunately people can be gone from our life with a blink of an eye!)

Then there is also pain and sorrow in our life...but the joy and beauty of life can help us cope with the pain and sorrow.

Life is not always easy...
I myself have lost many loved ones
in my life, and do miss them dearly.

I know one day, I will be gone also and I will leave behind those that will miss me. But, I hope they will just be able to go on and remember me and smile.... that's all... and know that I am ok... wherever I might be.

Life has so many unaswered questions... and I do not have the answers to yours here Keshi.

All I know is that I cherish each and every moment I have and try my very best to show love and kindnesss to all.

I do believe if we love life... it will love us back!!!!!

What more can I say...
Nothing!

Please try to be happy!
Wipe away those tears... and know that you are loved!
I love you!
-Margie

** Why is it that often a person's worth is felt only after they're gone?

coz we take em for granted when they r around

** Why do we gather so many materialistic needs?

humans r disgusting ;))

** What of these bonds when at the end of this life you can take none with you?

u still have the pride of having owned em all when u lived

** What's the purpose of this life when it's really only an illusion?

its perspective :)

** Why is it that tears are sometimes just not enough?

coz ur heart can't shed tears

** If there's also emptiness then what's so full about life?

that therz someone out there who can fill the void

** Where is my home?

where u can be thyself :)

** Why do people follow often and not lead?

lack of courage

** Do I have a meaning?

every soul does, n u hav a beautiful soul, so do u ;)

** Is God a mean guy who takes the good ones early?

ha ha NO. who said a long life is gud. god wan'd em to not suffer the grotesques of a long life. quantity doesn't matter ... quality does

** How do people somehow move on after someone is gone forever?

thats human spirit, I'v known ppl who died the moment their partner died. ppl move on coz they seek a purpose to their very existence, a subconscious instinct I presume

** Is selfishness the only real survival trait in humans?

he he NO. Hope is.

** What is so great about life when it can end in a second?

the power to live that one second the way u choose to

** What am I earning for?

that which will make u feel complete

** If I die young what of all the things I wanted to be?

he he >:), once ur dead, ur priorities wud change ;) coz u'd then be in a whole new dimension, u wudn't want what u want to be b4 :D ... dun u think?

** Why do I feel so much pain?

coz u have the ability to feel ... n someone or something had kept u balmy b4

** Why do I feel that everything is just so fake?

coz ur tired, tired of expecting things to be the way you want, feeling everything is a fake can make u stoic to it

** Why cant I move on?

coz u'v got a heart, n u listen to ut ... n u choose not to move on, in time u will nutty, give urself time

** What are we looking for?

we'r always luk'n for that which we don't have ... that which we believe wud make us happy ... sadly overlooking that which we have in hand
--------------------

I'v too asked these q's to myself dear ... guess u really needed some ears n shoulders to lean on ... u always knew the answers to these ... but u just wanna hear it from someone else

dun be pensive for too long k? ur the kind who lives everyday, so be it :), n spread ur smile

christabelle said...

my dear Keshi, there r so many unanswered questions we face in life, many things one cant just understand, hm, thats just life, many whys I guess.

catharsis said...

The pic was so serene while the write up in contrast raised a no. of questions that caused quite a stir in the mind...

Hazel Dream said...

hmm bwilderd by life?? this happens when expectations starts to loose the charm ..
find a Purpose in someones imperfection , Fast and succumb to it .
B4 its late

KL said...

None of it can be answered but perceived individually by individuals.

Hey Kesh, which part of Australia are you in?

Orikinla Osinachi. said...

My darling,
If the unfortunate death of dare devil Steve Irwin made you to write this post, I can understand your fears and your tears.

But God is totally innocent of his death.

Let sleeping dogs lie.
But, not Steve.
Steve led a dangerous life of daring the most dangerous creatures and as I said earlier, he died with his boots on. His death was accidental.

Life goes on

On other existential issues, God has already said that what we sow we reap sooner or later.

There is a greater spiritual life after this temporal life.

As we never even knew what life is before we were born, so we don't know what after life is now until we see it hereafter.

Keshi, I pray to the Almighty God that I should not lose you and I don't want you to lose me. Because, you deserve the best in life.

Now stop and look out of the window.
Is that not such a beautiful sunshine?
I love your smile.

God bless.

Akshay said...

Hi, Came here through Ekta's blog. Nice blog. I dont know what to comment on the post.. since I am trying to understand those very questions.

priya said...

Keshi:
1. When they are alive we know they are always with us. But when they are gone. we cherish those memories by keeping it.
2.It has become a necessity in todays world when you move. invite people to your home eith family/ career wise.
3.Nothing but our name stands if done good things.
4.Life is itslef a dream and we live like clouds.
5. I believe they live as angels watchign us to be safe.
6.If they do not have anything to say, it better they shut their mouth.
7.We console ourselves in tears and stop when we have to.
8.Life is beautiful when we think positive.
9. Life is not empty at all. It is what we create and live happy.
10. The place where happiness brings is our home.
11. People are different. Everyone cannot become leaders thaz why we have followers.
12.We have a meaning in what we do;speak and conclude.
13. In anger we say that. But god takes good ppl' coz he wants them as angels to watch out the evils and dear ones too.
14.Is it tuff, but the spirit remians in everybody;s lives and we move on as days goes by. But the pain remains in heart everyday.
15.It is a part of human survival. We live to learn and the fact of selfishness comes when we become too much in control over our money and needs.
16. Life is to see what we will/can do even at the birth. When we are born, we bring happiness to the people who hold us.
17. We earn for ourselves and to help the ppl' who need.
18. Dreams will be shattered, but the the dreams can live in the spirit of others hands who loved you more in your name.
19. Life without pain is just a mystery. We shud have both pain and happiness. It just balances to know the facts of life and its importance.
20. We fake it for ourselves. Life is simple and we can lead. When our needs grow, we all fake for others.
21. Based on situations, we either moe or just remian quiet. But we can't move on when we have seen miserable thing sin our lives and it leads to rejections.
22. I am looking for a life to be simple, happy and be generous.

Has to be me said...

Oospy! too many questions there! I think whats more significant than knowing the answers for these ?s is how does a person react to each of these.

Meaning, it wld be absolutely wonderful if each individual realises the value of each person whilst he/she is alive rather than when they r gone fr good.

ishita said...

u got me worried kesh...what's going on???:(

Eclipsed Thoughts said...

Too many qns... hehe... brb

Eclipsed Thoughts said...

Too many qns... hehe... brb

Eclipsed Thoughts said...

1. Usually they say we know what we have until we lose it... so maybe kind of "taking for granted" tendency, though it might seem invisible in the presence..

2. I dont know.... i think it is just a sense of "security" (though a fake one) and to gloat with pride

3. Bonds in life are fun, they help you grow and it is these bonds that make your death worthwhile.... at least you grew with time (the phase between life and death).

4. I dont know :(

5. Ditto

6. That will be the day when we mature... and if i talk about myself, i dont think i will mature in a lifetime... :(

7. We have this silly pots called lacrimal glands and every time we think we are strong enough, there glands prove us wrong.... pain is always there but the glands are even smarter, they burst open even in happiness.... I hope i have enough tears coz that would be a miserable day if i want to cry, but have no tears...

8. I think it is beautiful coz beuty lies in pain and bliss, in grace...

9. I dunt know,... i never thought life was 100% full.... :(

8. Home??? okay, i am a untagged gypsie.... wanna join?

7. Everyone is scared to decide... they would rather put off their responsibility to someone else's shoulders.... human tendency and fear i guess....

6. You once said Keshi meant pearl... well, if you are searching for meaning, hey i guess i found a partner.

5. Never met or talked to him....

4. No matter how much we deny, we are too selfish, we live for ourselves and die for ourselves.... to some it is too clear and they dwell in selfishness, and some are just ignorant about the intensity of selfishness that resides in them. I guess i am the one who falls in the first category... i think there are few exceptions also... maybe?

3. Not the only, but yes, one of the core traits (strictly my opinion) what say?

2. That split second of uncertainity i think....

1. To feed yourself, you need to feed your body, your mind and your desires and you need to earn for that.

0. I dont know.... btw, what do you want to be?? ;)

1. That is because you have a sensitive mind and body... wish we had some anaesthesia for mind as well.... science is yet to reach there.... but still, you feel the pain, so you understand otehrs pain as well... and that is when you really learn to respect happiness.... i dunno... this is what i read, but i dont know if it is implemented in real life...

2. Even i feel that.... same pinch!!! yay.... KAPS after all....

3. Maybe you are too low to take a step.... at the moment, same here!

4. Well, i guess if you were looking for comments and someone's opinion, i gave you ... ahem?? what else?

P.S.: I think it is a season for depression (virtual pressure i call it) and even i have been dwelling in it lately.... take your time and heal yourself.... HUGGGZZZZ and MUAAAHHHZZZ

Sush said...

Me first :-)).. You echo my feelings girl... you make me think hard and different.

Mr. Maverick said...

I am not a relegious person, and I dont believe in God.

But the answers to all your questions is in Bhagwat Geetha! Its a good read.

KK said...

What ever you have asked are all sensible questions but...my advice is not to think so much...Just live life the way you want to. Let others find the reason for why we are on this earth.

Cheer up lady!!! :)

Twisted DNA said...

Philosophers since millennia trying to answer these questions. I gave up on the quest for ultimate meaning of life. I am trying to live with the fact that people die, including myself. I decided that if I love enough, receive enough love, make at least a small difference for every person I meet, I will die a happy man.

You seem quite disturbed by Steve's demise, sweetie. Spend some in the comfort of the people you love.

_ð!®†ß¤¥ said...

Exactly the same questions i've been asking myself since yesterday.. Thank you for having put these thoughts so succintly..

Kavi said...

Your questions are profound ! Made me think. And then, get back to one my long standing north stars. Kahlil Gibran.

Then said a rich man, "Speak to us of Giving."
And he answered:

You give but little when you give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

For what are your possessions but things you keep and guard for fear you may need them tomorrow?

And tomorrow, what shall tomorrow bring to the overprudent dog burying bones in the trackless sand as he follows the pilgrims to the holy city?

And what is fear of need but need itself?

Is not dread of thirst when your well is full, thirst that is unquenchable?

There are those who give little of the much which they have - and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.

And there are those who have little and give it all.

These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.

There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.

And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.

And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue;

They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space.

Through the hands of such as these God speaks, and from behind their eyes He smiles upon the earth.

It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding;

And to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving

And is there aught you would withhold?

All you have shall some day be given;

Therefore give now, that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors'.

You often say, "I would give, but only to the deserving."

The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture.

questions questions.. gnaws at ur brain all the frikkin time.. i think we're better off not looking for answers.. like someone once said.. u dont seek answers.. they seek you..
all tht aside.. howww uu beeeennnn??? :) i had a rockinggg weekend! what abt you? :)

La vida Loca said...

who am i? where do i come from?where do i go? and why am i here?aren't they the ultimate questions?
I dont have all the answers.
I do know that God(in any name) is wonderful.
As for death and being born itself there is a school of thought that says you choose your moment of birth and death.(I read that no one knows for sure what induces labor but the brain of the fetus is implicated in kicking off the process)

Blessed said...

we are all hear for a purpose....
a purpose that isn't always so clear. As I get older, I feel that my purpose is becoming clearer.

Just thru your blog you have inspired me, influenced me, made me smile, made me ponder, shared a different and alike point of you. You have reached out...so few do. Look at all the good you have done.
Look how your light has shined upon so many...including me.
BLESSINGS!

starry nights said...

Keshi..I really dont know if I am first. I am ususally last. So many unanswered questions, most of them go through my mind also. I have always questioned God about people dying young. My parents did, they had sacrificed so much to give us everything and really did not live to enjoy or see the fruits of their labor." Is God a mean guy who takes the good ones early?
How do people somehow move on after someone is gone forever?I have always asked this questions.

angel said...

wow- so many questions!
how do you sleep?!?

saby said...

Life is a joke and
God is a joker

AnonymousBlogger said...

You're not the only one who has these questions. We all do at one point in time.

They are questions that make us human.

There's no simple answer for any of them. I guess that's what life is for - to answer some of these.

saby said...

All Is Vanity
1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

3 What profit hath a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun?

4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.

6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.

7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full: unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

8 All things are full of labor; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

Pallavi said...

Wohhh! Some valid questions. I have been successful in finding few answers and realized life itself is bundle of mysteries, some good, some not so good. I have some to one conclusion though..things/people which are meant to be will be urs(with time) no matter what!

saby said...

there is a road in Mumbai called LBS Marg




but people have forgotten Lal Bahadur Shastri, the dimunitive strong man (PM) of India

If I die young what of all the things I wanted to be?


wat u want to be?

ghee-ghee said...

Hello Keshiii! good morning!

I love this song!I love Evanescence(My Immortal,too)..

hmmm,i can relate so well with your questions..and i like this line..,

"What's the purpose of this life when it's really only an illusion?"

**sigh**

I wanna sigh again..but greeting you a very good day!!

p.s.

i created a new account just to make sure i can leave you a comment,special girl :)

prithz said...

OMG Keshi!!! I am wondering where the other "party" side of u disappeared!!! I am gettin to read all heavy stuff from ya...

I have often wondered abt "how sometimes, tears are jus not enuf".. for the other questions, i am equally as puzzlee as u r...

Within Without said...

Hi Kesh...

A lot of very good questions that we all need to and do ask ourselves from time to time.

But almost all of them are unanswerable. And they usually come when we are at a low ebb.

Clearly, you are. As we all have been.

If you need a hug, I offer you one. If you need a shoulder, mine is wide and strong.

If you need an answer to these questions, I cannot offer you that, only another question.

What do you think the answers are?

And when you decide, as I believe you will, that no answers are to be found, your positive and lively spirit that we have seen so many times in this space will return.

Until then, your sadness is understood.

Outdoorsy Girl said...

Very good questions Keshi! I wish I had the answers to some of them. Alot of great comments posted as well! I have to say that ghost particle's reply is very touching and as thought provoking as the questions you asked.

Sorry I haven't stopped by in so long! I've missed everyone! :)

Ghost Particle said...

Im first! Muahahahahahah! Crikey! Man i miss him...sigh...

Steph said...

I don't think we're supposed to know all the answers to those questions. Because if we did, how would we better ourselves?

Neers said...

Is God a mean guy who takes the good ones early?***Thats what we feel when we loose someone dear to us. I lost my father for no good reason, he was 36, i never prayed to God after that for more than a decade, but i'll say he is not mean.

I like the answers from Ghost Particle... nice of him/her to take the time to think on it all. Those are heavy questions Keshi - and I really don't have a single answer - especially when they all come at once! I just know that most of the time, life is good, and I'm glad I'm alive.

Jim said...

AMEN

Lots of heavy words this.. especially //Why is it that often a person's worth is felt only after they're gone?//

Have always wondered abt that.. sometimes I get this weird idea or lets say curiousity abt myself in that position.. if only I cud go and cure my curiousity of wht I am worth.. and come back.. well weird stuff it is.

Keshi said...

~~Ghost_Particle

those were some life-changing answers Ghosty! TY.

**Bonds...you leave for the new ones you create, new ones u inspire. let them continue your legacy.

I like that one.



**And pain comes when we dont understand. And when we understand, then life is real.

but Ghosty pain is not always cos we dont understand. We understand but we cant bear it. What do we do then?


**We are looking for answers. That keeps us busy. We are looking for love and belonging.

true but looking doesnt always end up being found. Thats irritates me.

Ur answers were great! many ppl here said that they liked what u said. tnxx for the wisdom Ghosty! And yes ur FIRST :)








~~Aditi

**and discovering the answers is the purpose of the journey of life aint it

true but do we discover em b4 we die?







~~John_Doe

Iris tnxxx!

Im crying alot here. I cant help feeling so much grief...I just cant help it. He was that infectious.







~~Die_Murane

I try to trust Murane but each time something breaks that trust. I'll try harder next time TY!

Keshi said...

~~ME

yeah but answers r not gonna be easy...






~~Lera

WC Lera!

**A quest, which Pervades every dimension of life..for ultimate Meaninfulness!if it's there

yes IF it's there. That's what I mean. Is it there?







~~Uagain

WC Uagain n tnxxx!

yeah alot of ppl might even think Im being negative...but Im not. This is the reality of life and Im nto afraid to say what I feel. I cant pretend that life is always beautiful when its not.

ty for ur words of widsom.








~~Samuru999

Margie Hugggggggggz and TY!

**All I know is that I cherish each and every moment I have and try my very best to show love and kindnesss to all.

true...but sometimes I cant even do that cos tears well up.

And not knowing the answers and knwoing that I might never know the answers make me so irritated. Sorry to sound so down but this is how I feel right now...I cant pretend to be happy when Im not mate.

Mwahhh have a nice day!







~~Ankit

hey Ankit Waiting has made me a frozen zombie. I hope u find the answers though.







~~Aqua

thats a BEAUTIFUL quote. That makes me think that I have alot to do yet...TY!







~~Vanathi

WB n tnxxx!








~~Samy

hey Samy tnxx!

**coz we take em for granted when they r around

but why do we take em for granted?


**coz ur heart can't shed tears

I like that answer.


**quantity doesn't matter ... quality does

thats true. But surely there's no quality of life for the ppl left behind.


**coz u'd then be in a whole new dimension, u wudn't want what u want to be b4

I u'stand that. But how do we even know that?


**coz ur tired, tired of expecting things to be the way you want, feeling everything is a fake can make u stoic to it

true but I dun expect much anymore but I feel so much pain for others. I wish I was different but then would that have helped?

anyways tnxxx Samy, tnxx alot!








~~Christabelle

Deja Vu all over again.

Hey Keshi, if I knew answers to these questions, you would start worshipping me. God - Would I be ;)

Or for that matter, anyone.

Keshi said...

~~Hazel_Dream

**find a Purpose in someones imperfection , Fast and succumb to it .

been there done that (in myself)...Im sick of it now. whats next?







~~KL

true...

Im in Sydney.







~~Orikinla_Osinachi

hey Ori tnxxx for being my friend! Ur always there for me TY.


**As we never even knew what life is before we were born, so we don't know what after life is now until we see it hereafter.

but the fact that there may be nothing after this temporary life makes me feel so sad that so many ppl have so many hopes and then die one day just like that.








~~Akshay

WC Akshay and I really like ur profile pic :)







~~Priya

hey Priya tnxxx!

**8.Life is beautiful when we think positive.

ok I agree but how can one think positive in the most negative situations?


**9. Life is not empty at all. It is what we create and live happy.

It can get very empty when someone dies. We just move on cos we have to. But the emptiness lurks inside. Isnt it?


**But god takes good ppl' coz he wants them as angels to watch out the evils and dear ones too.

I thought so too...but look at all the evil in this world? so where r these angels?


**20. We fake it for ourselves. Life is simple and we can lead. When our needs grow, we all fake for others.

thats so true. ppl r so fake. Life isnt.


**22. I am looking for a life to be simple, happy and be generous.

thats great Priya TY!








~~Has_To_Be_Me

**Meaning, it wld be absolutely wonderful if each individual realises the value of each person whilst he/she is alive rather than when they r gone fr good.

true TY!







~~Ishita

Is Im just terribly bummed. Dun worry...I'll try to pick up. HUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGZ!

hows u btw?







~~Eclipsed_Thoughts

heyy KAP!


**at least you grew with time (the phase between life and death).

thats so true.


**I hope i have enough tears coz that would be a miserable day if i want to cry, but have no tears...

thats right...cos when u wanna cry and u dun have enough tears, it hurts more.


**8. I think it is beautiful coz beuty lies in pain and bliss, in grace...

so true! TY for this.


**8. Home??? okay, i am a untagged gypsie.... wanna join?

hehe wud be a treat to join someone like u!


**6. You once said Keshi meant pearl... well, if you are searching for meaning, hey i guess i found a partner.

awwwwwwwww....


**5. Never met or talked to him....

No?


**4. No matter how much we deny, we are too selfish, we live for ourselves and die for ourselves....

KAP Im sooo glad u said this! And that u r brave enough to admit that. I agree with u and Im ashamed to say that Im selfish too. As humans thats the only trait that's in ALL of us.


**to some it is too clear and they dwell in selfishness, and some are just ignorant about the intensity of selfishness that resides in them. I guess i am the one who falls in the first category... i think there are few exceptions also... maybe?

So right! couldnt have aid it any better. Im in the first cat too. I hope!


**3. Not the only, but yes, one of the core traits (strictly my opinion) what say?

CORE it is.


**1. To feed yourself, you need to feed your body, your mind and your desires and you need to earn for that.

wonderful answer!


**0. I dont know.... btw, what do you want to be?? ;)

good Qn...I want to be nothing. Right now Im something and it's a real pain. Get what I mean?


**but still, you feel the pain, so you understand otehrs pain as well... and that is when you really learn to respect happiness....

thats so true! KAP ur a repository of WISDOM.


**2. Even i feel that.... same pinch!!! yay.... KAPS after all....

hehehe ;-)


**3. Maybe you are too low to take a step.... at the moment, same here!

ditto!


**4. Well, i guess if you were looking for comments and someone's opinion, i gave you ... ahem?? what else?

goshh one hell of an answer list! Terrific. Thanks so much for that..I really grew from em.


**P.S.: I think it is a season for depression (virtual pressure i call it) and even i have been dwelling in it lately

tell em abt it KAP! Every blog I visited had something to do with someone's death this week. It's so sad. Anyways I hope we pick up soon HUGGGGGGGGGGGGZ and TY once again for the GREAT answers!

ishita said...

hi...feeling better tdy?:)...was goin thru answers here...enough has been said and some very well said indeed!:)...

i was workin on my blog late last nite and workin on the last post...and the connection went off...which left d post in drafts...didn't realize it myself soooo when i got here and opened my blog...i was confused for a while wondering where in d world my post had gone off to!!:(

sorted that out now...then had a look at ur comment:)...and of course, got here!

i rem my granma wld tell me as a child that "God takes those who he loves most" and i wld keep pestering her "does that mean if i live really long God doesn't love me? Is that a punishment??"...she would keep shooing me away...me and my questions...but see questions never leave us do they? the older we grow the more complicated life gets and the questions just keep coming...

sometimes life just overwhelms us...

what are we looking for? ... I know i am looking for a day when questions won't haunt me...

tc kesh...it's a new day...make it your day...smile and shine:)...u do that best!

***good Qn...I want to be nothing. Right now Im something and it's a real pain. Get what I mean?

Yes, i can understand that... the point where your wishes and your self are just not meeting.... its like living in the loss where the breakeven point is still very far or doesnot seem to be reachable...

Yes, even i want to be nothing.... it would have been so fun coz whatever i am, its a PAIN for me as well.....

Jewel Rays said...

A rush of thoughts
Alot of possible answers
yet no philospher can gurantee
the weight,truth or value of their answers.

And sometimes when we walk on the road. And life comes hard and face to face with experiences,we tend to wonder.

There are still unanswered questions left to be answered for me as well. But some of those that i asked a long time ago, came unveiling as i come face to face with life experiences once again.

Cheer up..gurlie...

One step at a time..and u will get stronger each time..

*hugs*

Kumar Chetan said...

we the human beings are meant to be like this. So dont worry. Death is a bitter truth which we have to face one day. We cant deny it. So dont worry. I may sound careless but what else you can do when death will be standing infront of you?

Keshi said...

Kumar thats so true. Im not even worried abt Death. I know it will come to me too. But what bothers me is whats the purpose of this life then?

***I mean I always feel that Im looking for something that I will never find...looking too much...looking too far...I just wanna stop that.

Its just that we try to see more than what our eyes and our mind can actually cover.... anyways, i believe our horizons never end, its just the sight is limited. U will come out great!

Harry said...

hey keshi,I m fine,thanx...but u dont seem to be fine..wht happen??

southpaw said...

But what bothers me is whats the purpose of this life then?
-When i asked this question once, this was ur answer...

sometimes not looking for a purpose is a peaceful way to live life...cos the purpose itself is in the living, not in teh search...

keshi...

wat did u gain by asking these questions??

u want me to answer them???

SamY said...

** but why do we take em for granted?

coz they r around us unasked


** thats true. But surely there's no quality of life for the ppl left behind.

comforts doesn't equate to quality keshi ... when I meant quality I mean living life n full n being content about it, wanting for something more if different, but living to the best with what we have it what I meant by quality

** I u'stand that. But how do we even know that?

we can only understand that which we can c ... u can't see whats past the light r8? u take steps only as far as u can c :)

** true but I dun expect much anymore but I feel so much pain for others. I wish I was different but then would that have helped?

if u were different u wudn't be U ... being able to commiserate is a gr8 thing

Cazzie!!! said...

These questions are close to the heart, these questions are whatkeep people going, these questions, when answered sincerely, are what brings us to enlightenment..that is what we all need :)

**comforts doesn't equate to quality keshi ... when I meant quality I mean living life n full n being content about it,

what's a full life?

I think the series of questions are too long too answer and they cannpt be answered on impulse.
I think I will take it up as a tag and then try to put some answers to some very simple deep rooted questions.

SamY said...

** what's a full life?

one way to put it - that u'll be remembered the way you want to be remembered after ur death :)

when ur alive, when u luk bak n find u'v lived ur past the way u wan'd to ... not being pensive over what u didn't have ... but being happy over having done the best of what u had

full life - u'v been what u'v wan'd to be ... truthful to thyself ... living up to what u mean :)

its not necessarily doin everything u'v every wan'd to do or have all that u wan'd to have

Kautilya said...

Why is it that often a person's worth is felt only after they're gone?
Bcoz.. u take that person 4 ganted.

Why do we gather so many materialistic needs?
Bcoz.. u are so easily distracted... or drawn away from life.

What of these bonds when at the end of this life you can take none with you?
Bcoz.. u r born that way... u come with none.. u go with none.

What's the purpose of this life when it's really only an illusion?
Nothing is without purpose.. even if its an illusion.. its not without purpose.

Where do people go when they die?
They dont' go any where... its just u r unable to see dem.. coz they exist in a different dimension.

When will people learn to say nothing if they don't have anything good to say?
They wont' Train ourselves to b like dat... and train urself not b affected when ppl do say something like that.

Why is it that tears are sometimes just not enough?
Tears r never enough.. all the times... try hugging... that may fill the void.

Is life always beautiful?
yes it is!

If there's also emptiness then what's so full about life?
emptyness completes life... Not everything is filled with what u want... teh remaining is filled with emptyness!

Where is my home?
Home is where u r!

Why do people follow often and not lead?
Bcoz.. its easy 2 follow than 2 lead.

Do I have a meaning?
yes u do! and u know it better than anyone else!

Is God a mean guy who takes the good ones early?
God is not a guy! God is a hot chick.. who runs the show.. (just kidding!)
Goods ones are needed everywhere, they r needed by everyone!

How do people somehow move on after someone is gone forever?
Bcoz.. Nothing is indispensable

Is selfishness the only real survival trait in humans?
yes!

What is so great about life when it can end in a second?
that is presicely the greatness! It can end in a moment! So learn to live it fully.. and to treasure it when u have it!

What am I earning for?
yourself!

If I die young what of all the things I wanted to be?
u will b some day...

Why do I feel so much pain?
u feel pain when u fight it! so surrender to it.. and u will conquer it!

Why do I feel that everything is just so fake?
everything is for fake... even real is for fake!

Why cant I move on?
U can.. if u free urself... from all the weigth u have on ur heart!

What are we looking for?
nothing! everythings within u!


Things are very simple... indeed its only we.. trying to make it simpler.. complicate things and eventually life....

Sudeep said...

some of the questions had me thinking ...

i hope ur mood is up today.. huggzz.. tk care

Ghost Particle said...

// but Ghosty pain is not always cos we dont understand. We understand but we cant bear it. What do we do then?
---
true but looking doesnt always end up being found. Thats irritates me. //

The deeper the worry, the worst is the pain. Then its pain because of missing someone so much, because of betrayal, because of love. There is no solution, except maybe for us to change the situation. That might make us look dumb, but surely we can change things and there would be lesser pain. My biggest pain is seeing all the young ones waste their lives under intense pop culture, disrespect, immorality and drugs.

Then change the place youre looking, change the things youre looking for and the best is, find someone who you can look with, together.

Have fun Keshi!

Ash said...

These questions have no concrete answers and thats the beauty. Thats what makes everyday worth getting up for....
It would be boring if we had all the answers!

Winter is always followed by spring, have faith!

Ash said...

Some lines from a little known 19th century poet... when i was going through tough times, it greatly helped.

"For all your days prepare
And meet them alike
When you are the anvil, bear-
When you are the hammer, strike"

Oh! Too many questions that dont have answers...Guess these Qs what makes life going (in search of the answers)

Hope you doing fine...:)

Pri said...

hmmm often ask "the one above" these very same questions...
till now ive juss been ignored :(
guess life is all about finding the right answers...
btw wonderful set of answers by "eclipsed thoughts"...:) nice positive attempt at figuring life out...

*smiles n hugs*

the_ego_has_landed said...

hey keshi... HUGS!!! hope u feeling better now... cause writing/blogging helps..
I know I dont have answers too.. those queries come to me too..

well.. i guess we gotta hold on and find meaning in the things we belive. Being true to ourselves and not caring about the fakeness others show. Tough but that's how it is...

love ya girl! take care!

Foodie's Hope said...

Beautiful thoughts!! Answers would be different for each person as they lead their life in their own way!
Somebody asked me "where would see yourself in 5 yrs?" and I laughed and said "I am happy to be alive and well today, this minute!"
I am not into designer world, or ambitious, CHOOSE to be good, to say and do good without hurting anybody in anyway! If my time's up tomorrow, I am satisfied with what and how I did in life and go with a smile!!
Here is to life..Cheers!!!

niki yokota said...

So many great advices u ve got in here!! ^o^;;;
i also dont know where my home is...*tear*
i can only say, pls dont think too much keshi-chan!!
take care....

alex said...

Keshi,
The questions which you mentioned are not necessary in our life! We can always come up with controversial and elusive questions.
What is more important is to live, without worrying. Answers will come as we live life. They might not come if we are on the look out for it, but just accept life and recognise the banal in our lives!

KK said...

Good!! :)

dumbdodi said...

Dearest Keshi
I am sorry I am late, you don't seem too well. You seem very anxious and disturbed. I obviously don't have answers as these questions bother me too. As age comes to us without giving us a choice, wisdom too I think will come to us without notice..somday, somewhere, sometime. All we can do is be good, patient and wait.
Hope you get back to being your cheerful self

Dearest Keshi
I am sorry I am late. You seem quite disturbed and low. Obviously you would know I do not have answers to your questions and the same ones bother me too. But what I think now is that as Age comes to us by itself, wisdom too will come to us on its own. We just need to be patient and receptive. Keshi we will get answers or wisdom someday about whether or not these are the right questions.

8.Life is beautiful when we think positive.

ok I agree but how can one think positive in the most negative situations?
{ keshi, I was in the same situation when I lost my mom. It happened to me when I was about to see her in a week and lost her when I was little far away from her.
I have asked several times why my mom after all coz nobody can replace her as he is my best friend. I also lost my best friend before my mom in few months. It was a double shock for me to come again. It took years for me to be normal as an individual.
In that situation just crying alone is not going to bring them back aive. All positive enrgy we have spent with them shud be within us to keep us happy at all times. When we are not happy our surrounding go dull and it makes life negative.}

**9. Life is not empty at all. It is what we create and live happy.

It can get very empty when someone dies. We just move on cos we have to. But the emptiness lurks inside. Isnt it?
{ As said emptiness is always ther. But we need to fill them up from what they had dreamt of us. When I finished what I promised to my mom, that emptiness was gone coz, I know she is happy watching me}

**But god takes good ppl' coz he wants them as angels to watch out the evils and dear ones too.

I thought so too...but look at all the evil in this world? so where r these angels?
{ Angels comes in different forms to me. I believe when you need someone, you come across good people. They are angels. When I was in India travelling in train, the lady I saw was just resembling my mom. I went myself and spoke to her to make myself better, coz to me I felt her presence as my mom}

Hi

Just posted your comments on one of our blogs. Nothing like being a day behind.

So, what's with this Greer idiot. Steve Irwin was a great person. He worked an American late night TV show quite often. The show paid him a very fine tribute. At the end Jay Leno (host) had to turn away from the camera to say,"God bless you, my friend." Steve and Jay were friends. Steve was not just another guest of the show--he was a friend of the show!

heyy mate !
good morning !
each one of us have to decide how we approach life individually . we will answer or perhaps not answer those questions in different ways. ultimately it is we and only we alone who can decide how we lived, what we did, and above all what was it all for.. we are not answerable to anyone else.

question is, do we even answer ourselves? do we not run away from our own life and lose it in the events of our routines that we call 'life'?
how conscious are we of our own life?

that is why we need those questions. thanks.

huuuggggzzzz!

~~Alex

hey Alex!

**We can always come up with controversial and elusive questions.

But I didnt TRY to come up with these qns. They came up on their own. I cant help feeling this way Alex.

Yes we should not worry so much and just live out life. But sometimes it's just too hard not to worry - when I see so many great ppl dying just like that. And it was one of those moments that got me writing this post.

tnxxx!

~~Homo_Escapeons

so darn true! :) tnxxx matey!








~~Wryter

I gave a good piece of my mind to Greer at a UK website. She's just jealous that she wasnt used as a 90yr old crocodile in one of Steve's shows.

Just ignore the foolish woman. It's true that education doesn't bring intelligence. And Uni doesnt teach one how to get a heart. She's a sick old class-less woman who has no respect for a REAL hero or for anyone's life for that matter. Educated my ass.

Some ppl just dunno how to keep quiet when they have nothing good to say abt a person. Thats what I had that Qn in this list too. Greer was in my head at that time.

tnxxx Wryter!








~~Sittingnut

**question is, do we even answer ourselves? do we not run away from our own life and lose it in the events of our routines that we call 'life'?
how conscious are we of our own life?

Spot on! That exactly is my Qn too.No one is really conscious of what LIFE really is. Everyone is just drifting with the flow - dun wanna think, dun wanna worry, dun wanna stop and realise...just drifting. Im sick of drifting along too.








~~Saby

ur right..FUCK it is.








~~Samuru999

Mwahhh Margie as long as ur by my side, how can I not be OK? Hugggggggggz angel!

SaffronSaris said...

Uh-huh, poppy doll-pearl is in a pensive mood....
The first question totally struck me. I am reminded of Vincent van Gogh every single time such a question pops up. Why did nobody appreciate his talents when he was alived and let him die a pauper's death? I felt it was like a slap in his face now that there are gazillions reprints of the sunflowers around.

Sujit said...

1. May be that we do not know the value.. as we are in the flow with them..?
2. may be because we are humans.. and its our nature to gather?
3. I feel bonds are there to comfort one.. either you become a pillar for some or someone becomes for you..
4. I feel everything is an illusion.. every life is meant for something.. and the pupose may arise only at the end?
5. Body becomes fertilizer feeding worms..! while soul is gone towards while.. there footprints left within us.. where they always live..like keshi!.. as she left so many foot prints.. and leaves that one can take into their book of life :)..

5. Never

6. because emotions are in an abssy that tears cannot fill them..

7. Life is always not beautifull.. which ever way it is.. we need to see the beauty in it.

8. love can fill anything.. :)

9. home is where you feel you belong there..

10. They are scared where they may fall into pits..!..

11. keshi is book of treasure :)

12. Its because we feel there necessary hence their lack of presence creates a void.. which we feel god is taken then early..

13. Brain works such that at anypoint of time.. only one thing works.. and when its a life that you need to live.. you need to forget that someone is not there..!.. I faced a misery.. and continue but cope up with something else as a priority..make yourself so bus that the voidness vanishes..

14. Sometimes yes and sometimes no..

15. you can bring smile on someones face.. who is suffering..

16. For your living..

17. What you have dreamt the most!.. felt you should be like this.. that tehing..

18. Because you love people with heart!..

19. You belive early beofre the person shows their color.. and hence suffer..! its not your fault but they take advantage of you :(

20. You can.. you have moved.. and will move!.. your freinds are you strength.. who give theor sholder when you are down.. and continue to be so..!

21. A peacefull death!.. without worry or suffering?

For all these answers, yes. Only God. ;)

Here is a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy......

Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don't worry, be happy
The land lord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don't worry, be happy
Lood at me I am happy
Don't worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number
When you worry call me
I make you happy
Don't worry, be happy
Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style
Ain't got not girl to make you smile
But don't worry be happy
Cause when you worry
Your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don't worry, be happy (now).....

There is this little song I wrote
I hope you learn it note for note
Like good little children
Don't worry, be happy
Listen to what I say
In your life expect some trouble
But when you worry
You make it double
Don't worry, be happy......
Don't worry don't do it, be happy
Put a smile on your face
Don't bring everybody down like this
Don't worry, it will soon past
Whatever it is
Don't worry, be happy

why not you read this book

phra farang - an english monk in thailand - i just glancing in bangkok book store and foudn this book. i would suggest you read this.

ari4u said...

>>Why is it that often a person's worth is felt only after they're gone?
You dont know what you got till you lost it, when that happens, the feeling that sinks in that you will never see that person again is intolerable.

>>Why do we gather so many materialistic needs?
Correction. They are not needs, they are wants. Anything materialistic is a want. We can live without a want, but cannot live without a need being fufilled.


>>What of these bonds when at the end of this life you can take none with you?
We arrive into this world all alone and depart all alone.


>>What's the purpose of this life when it's really only an illusion?
Live the illusion one day at a time and dont spend time thinking of the purpose. Take life as it comes to you.

>>Where do people go when they die?
They dont go anywhere but their soul floats up and gets stuck to the ceiling.


>>When will people learn to say nothing if they don't have anything good to say?
Never. The tongue is a muscle in the body which hangs loose. Difficult to control it.


>>Why is it that tears are sometimes just not enough?
Supplement that with a couple of cuss words and there you go... feel better? ;) :)


>>Is life always beautiful?
Depends on how you look at it. If you are in your office and looking outside the window, life is really beautiful. If your are outside and are looking at your office, life does suck :)


>>If there's also emptiness then what's so full about life?
Everyone needs some space of their own. Emptiness=space. Maybe someone can fit in there and fill the voids ;)


>>Where is my home?
Home is where the heart is
Home is where you make it
Home is where you park your @ss for the night :D lol


>>Why do people follow often and not lead?
Who wants to be the driver when you can sit in the back and enjoy the drive?



>>Do I have a meaning?
Yeah. Keshi = Pearl. I thought you knew it already :P


>>Is God a mean guy who takes the good ones early?
With hell getting overcrowded and stronger with the bad guys, god sure needs good people on his side to fill the heavens.


>>How do people somehow move on after someone is gone forever?
They are the people who accept the fact that they can never get that someone back into their life again and continue to live with their memories.


>>Is selfishness the only real survival trait in humans?
No. It is courage, determination and the will to hang on. Selfishness often is attached to some motive, and can never help you survive. Actually, it might lead to your downfall.


>>What is so great about life when it can end in a second?
Live life everydady as if it is your last day on earth. If tomorrow comes...


>>What am I earning for?
Another Nokia? Havent seen your advertisements in a while ;)


>>If I die young what of all the things I wanted to be?
The more you think of all these, the more you are wasting your youth. Take life as it comes, make wise choices, be a good and caring human being.


>>Why do I feel so much pain?
You let pain and anguish control you. If it is physical, you are better off with a pain killer.


>>Why do I feel that everything is just so fake?
Dint you just say life was an illusion? You are the artist and you paint the life the way you want.


>>Why cant I move on?
cos you have your foot on the brake, holding on to something that you can never get back. Let go... and life will move on.


>>What are we looking for?
The real answers to these questions? Ignore mine, i'm no Socrates

Now, snap out of this mood and have a nice weekend :) Hugss...

hey Ari WB! Missed ya mate.

**You dont know what you got till you lost it, when that happens, the feeling that sinks in that you will never see that person again is intolerable.

I guess it human nature. But there r some ppl who value ppl even when they r alive. Very few tho.


**Correction. They are not needs, they are wants. Anything materialistic is a want. We can live without a want, but cannot live without a need being fufilled.

so true! tnxx for that.



**They dont go anywhere but their soul floats up and gets stuck to the ceiling.

hehe really? :):)


**Never. The tongue is a muscle in the body which hangs loose. Difficult to control it.

so true!



**Depends on how you look at it. If you are in your office and looking outside the window, life is really beautiful. If your are outside and are looking at your office, life does suck :)

**Everyone needs some space of their own. Emptiness=space. Maybe someone can fit in there and fill the voids ;)

**They are the people who accept the fact that they can never get that someone back into their life again and continue to live with their memories.

I just cant do that...



**No. It is courage, determination and the will to hang on. Selfishness often is attached to some motive, and can never help you survive. Actually, it might lead to your downfall.

aha...


**What am I earning for?
Another Nokia? Havent seen your advertisements in a while ;)

lolz yeah maybe...btw no ads no more.



**The more you think of all these, the more you are wasting your youth. Take life as it comes, make wise choices, be a good and caring human being.

No I think the more I dont think abt these the more I waste my youth...



**You let pain and anguish control you. If it is physical, you are better off with a pain killer.

I put your blog in the pickle jar by reason of this one post. There's so much I want to say, yet I have nothing of any real substance, just opinions, like we all do - like this post for the fact that it highlights that fact, what do we really know for certain. Tinge of sadness overriding, yet this is one of my favourites thus far.

Keshi said...

hey Autumn tnxxx babez! Yes alot of sadness in this cos life pisses me off most of the time with it's wierd presentations.

TY!
