Experiencing restlessness is like being on pins and needles, you are anxious for time to pass, for something to happen…anything to happen. You look forward to whatever it is that will put an end to the restless state of mind. It could be anything from waiting for the email to arrive or a damn phone call or the presence of someone who had been missing for quite a while. The anticipation can be killing and in your restless state of mind you find bursts of absent mindedness with thoughts far away imagining situations where some relief from your current state of mind is felt.

It is amazing how situations can spin your state of mind out of control, how anticipation can build to unimaginable states of anxiety. It is a not so nice a state to be in as you feel only a miracle will help you make peace with yourself.

When do you start feeling objective about a situation in your life?

Trivial things in everyday situations to coping with life’s experiences that go on to make you tough, everything has an impact on the way you think and the way your personality shapes.

I for one always think that it is difficult to feel objective at the first take. It takes years of growing up to be able to do that at the drop of a glance. Thoughts always tend to bounce off the heart to the head. It is your emotional take on it first, even more so for a sensitive person and then it goes past that stage of thought to an analysis of the situation. That is when you push the situation away from you and look at it from various different pairs of shoes. You then arrive at a clear objective picture, from which point it becomes easier to move on, having dealt with it inside your head. You can choose to shrug it off or learn from it, whichever the situation is worthy of.

Missing someone can transport you into an unreal world. It makes them loom large in your memory and they kind of haunt your thoughts somewhere in the back of your head. The smile on the corner of the lips, the stead fast gaze, the dimple you never noticed before flashes across your mind’s eye…like Wordsworth would speak of a host of daffodils. Yeah, your heart does flutter and dance in the memory and you start pining. There is a weird sort of comfort that you derive from pining. It leaves a gentle but yet deep ache within your soul, which you feel sometimes in a physical sense. It usually starts out as a lump in the throat and lands somewhere in your heart like heavy burden you cannot throw off. Yes, releasing the agony in tears can offer some solace and you can then carry on with routine. The beauty of life and the intensity of emotions are usually felt in moments. You capture the moment hold it close to your heart, understand it with your mind and savour if for whatever intense feeling it brings… be it happiness or sorrow and then it quickly flits away from your scrutiny just as it appeared suddenly out of the blue. I figure why poets glorify the pain of missing someone and pining for them. It yields a special kind of joy by itself…maybe because your heart fills with powerful emotions that make you feel warm in the heart and fuzzy in the head.

Music has this amazing quality of empathy. When you are feeling romantic, there is nothing that can celebrate the sweetness of romance and take you away to Peter Pan’s never never land like a soft melodious soul stirring voice made magical in the folds of enchanting tunes. You can feel your heart skip hippety hippety hop alongwith the music. Here the music enhances your feelings, adds colour and rhythm to it and makes you really really happy and makes your imagination take a roller coaster ride of emotional highs.

What happens when you are feeling sad? Again music lends voice to your anguish. You can cry your heart out listening to a number that moves you and reflects your emotional turmoil but the best part is your tryst with music when in rage. I find metal the most demonstrative release of rage. When you are feeling happy or sad, music enhances those feelings, make them burn through you, giving you a high. When you feel anger, music, the heavy metal kinds, actually heals. I was listening to the Helloween band which has some amazing numbers. The best bit was the sarcastic humour laced ever so subtly within the lyrics. It makes you laugh in all the anger you feel. The pace and tempo of the music is so soothing to the soul….you got to experience it… to see what I mean, so next time you feel that rage building inside you, tune in to¬† album, The Dark Ride ( Band – Helloween), for a recipe on coming to terms with the rush of emotions inside you. HEAL YOURSELF.

Importance of communication is often stressed in whatever walk of life you exist. You need to break ice, you need to communicate, you need to express your anger, you need to speak your mind, you need to ask for what you want, you need to do this and and you need to do that.

However, speaking whatever runs in your mind becomes a very difficult proposition when you are caught in an emotionally vulnerable situation. Subtlety doesn’t help in such cases either. There is always the benefit of doubt.

Are you game?

Last night was watching a program that investigated the reasons behind what could have been a disastrous air crash. When the investigation started out, fingers were pointed at the flying machine for the failure of one of the engines. However, weighing the pros and cons and several attempts at recreating mock situations some surprising findings were unearthed.

Hide and seek

Human relationships are a fascinating subject. It is difficult to fathom why we like the people we like, it never helps to logically seek reasons for why we cannot stand the sight of somebody or why we become intimidated by the one we love and when you often hold conversations with them fluently in your mind, why it becomes exceedingly difficult to accomplish a friendly exchange in person.
