Just Let it All Go!

To witness something truly extraordinary, perhaps the foremost step is to feel the air by throwing yourself out, and that cannot be tandem.

A hidden gem resides in every corner of earth —that fetch your excitement, to be then forgotten forever. Dive in to find them and start writing another page in life. Probably it would be another hint of our inconsistent mindset.

An incredible soul forms the root of any complex tree of feelings. Yet we get baffled by the intricacy of what’s good and what’s bad, to be then amazed by the blurriness of what any of that has to do with staying true to oneself or not. That brutally gaugeable thin layer of skin always gets you to lose things —all ignited by the slight dissonance between the vibrant heart and ever pragmatic brain!

What always reverberates in my ears is that same incredible sound — “Just let it all go” before Hritik jumped onto the sky in one of the best Indian films ever made.

To witness something truly extraordinary, perhaps the foremost step is to feel the air by throwing yourself out, and that cannot be tandem. Gazing at the distant horizon while you fear the end of your life is that point where the villainous stress hormone says “bye” for a significant time in our life thereafter. It’s a medicine.

I become the drone for myself to see through what’s going on. Yes, a deliberate zoom out from anything and everything makes almost everything beautiful. A state where I don’t see the negatives anymore, instead I see the details far away to be deceivingly diamonds. It doesn’t matter if its true or not. As Nolan says, “feel it if you don’t get it”!

This weirdly beautiful world has many things boiling down to public displays and get assertion from people to finally decide who you are. We follow the weirdness while being concious that all you get in return is the most calibrated and controlled triggers with pedantic judgements shot straight at your forehead.

It’s hard to figure out things in this noise. Yet the matter of fact is, life is a mystery. A mystery that can be bad and can be heartbreaking. It’s ok to stare at it with confusion. Watch the sky, and say “It’s ok Idiot. Just Let it All Go”!
