Success!


If Success is like the Sky:
everybody wants to reach for it and touch it, but never is able to; because it’s all the feeling, one can only feel it, never touch it, because it is all here devoid of any form, shape; it is not materialistic!
If one thinks one is flying in it, one realizes where does it start and end then? If it’s like flying, one must remember one has to take off from one’s base (e.g., the earth) and must remember one has to return or land back on to the base/ground level to fly again; so one has to re-energize/refuel/refresh/restart!
Also, one can be then knocked down off the flying, aka ‘Success‘!
There is no ‘ever‘ concept in Success then!?
So now one comes to realize Success doesn’t have a perfect analogy! It is incomparable as it seems!

If Success is the key to Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Is it a door/gate or room or house or the world or whatever?
If it’s a door/gate, then it can be breached, can be collapsed and can be broken down!
Then there would be privileged pass, time-bound pass, membership pass!
Then there must be at least a door-keeper/gate-keeper/watchman/security/guard. So one can’t just enter like that, one has to fight for it or cheat that to have that entry. But if that was possible, then everybody would do it some or the other way; but the truth is that it’s not.
Also, with this door/gate-key context, what’s the lock then?
Also, if there is the entry, there must be an exit (forced)!
So it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!
And if Success is an enclosed entity, would one want to live confined forever?

If Success is the state of Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Isn’t it the state of feeling Happy ( which is again beyond any exact definition)? So what’s feeling or being Happy then? Isn’t it like feeling good, content, nothing to want, nothing to need, nothing to desire, nothing to search for, nothing to ask for, nothing to beg for, nothing to earn, nothing to yearn, nothing new! Then it’s just the way one feels! It’s just one’s state of mind. So it’s all fluctuating. And all this is self-realized, and also self-controllable!
So again, it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!

So Success is tentatively easy to visualize, but not so easy to realize!
Success can’t be exactly defined!
It exists but without any practical existence!

Yes, CM! (Common Man!)


Yes, CM!
I am so common, I am the CM!
Oh, no, you thought me the CM, the Chief Minister! Never Mind! It’s me, the Common Man! It’s so Common Me!
I am so remembered, yet fully ignored!
I am so characterless, so prevalent, so common, that’s why I am Common Me!
I am the Cursed Moon! So cursed that nobody would be with me, would never praise me, forget worshipping me; worst, everybody say I am Common, I am Me, but check the reality, so cursed and corrupt I am made to be that I never make it to the wish and the to-be list of any Corrupt Man, any Common Man! So Cursed and hated, I am Common Man, I am!
I am so hot, I am so cold! I am so sexy and glamourous that I am sold at once!
I am so ridiculously Characterless Man! I am always with and on and in every man, every woman, every leader, every fellow, every teacher, every follower, every politician, every voter, every economist, every strategist, every philosopher, every prophet, everybody! I am so common, so prevalent, so much present in mention, every talk, every column, every speech, every agitation, every movement, every plan, every budget, under the carpet, every chowk, every bazaar, every turn, every corner, every road, even footpath, every house, every home, every place, every state, so much so everywhere, don’t you forget the constitution! So Characterless and Common I am!
So prevalent yet so helpless and so lonely!
Never a destination, Never the Destiny!
I am always cited, recited; but never am I Mantra the Sacred!
I am always on the talk on the red Carpet, but I am always kept under the carpet!
I am always so wildly celebrated, but I am never the celebrity!
I am always called an inspiration, but nobody wants me even in their wildest desperation!

Yes, CM! I am so much so the Common Man!
