What is the opposite of bliss?

This blog, like many other blogs I have written in my life, was triggered by a book I am reading. The book I am reading right now is called Krishna: The man and his philosophy by Osho. I don’t believe in religion for sure and was a little skeptical about reading this. But it came up in a conversation with a friend and I liked what he was talking about. I decided to read it and one of the lines that struck me from the book was The word bliss is without an opposite. And I asked myself, what is the opposite of bliss? I couldn’t find an answer. We talk of most feelings in pair: love-hate, joy-sorrow, pleasure-pain but bliss is just bliss.

We need to meditate, starting yesterday!

I have often thought about writing about Meditation. But the truth is that I barely understand the concept myself. For so long meditation used to bring images of monks seated in saffron robe who have given up on the luxuries of life. And I didn’t want to give up any luxuries, hence I couldn’t meditate. The logic seemed simple enough: to meditate you need to let go of all your Wifi and Kindle etc. But turns out that’s not the case.

So I started with wikipedia and asked it What is Meditation? Here is what I got: Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content, or as an end in itself.

A gateway through time

On those empty green roads
No.. I done think I should call them that
The path of green gently trodden grass
That leads to an unknown place

It is not a path in space perhaps
But more like a gateway into another time
A time where there is no wrong
A soft glow of right all around

Shadow at Night

I wrote this about a year back and found it recently under some old uncatalogued text files. I still wonder why I never came to put it up.

Its night, a decent one at that
And i am sitting by the water
There’s a shadow under my feet
And its shining bright tonight

There’s a reflection that bubbles up
And slowly dies away
Just when i try to catch it
Playfully it withers from me

Expectations

Havent felt like writing lately. Was reading down the memory lane. Found this. This one is one of my 1st writing when i was in Kota ( Rajasthan ), preparing for IIT entrance, around Sep 2004 i should guess.

Bundled up in endless joy
Trying to please you , god knows why
Trying to make up for what’s gone wrong
Trying to make this friendship strong

So give me another chance , a opportunity
To die without a regret would be a pity
To show what i feel for you
To let my emotions flow as they do
