The Irony

Think Simple

This post is in response to Weekly Writing Challenge: Ice, Water, Steam.

The Challenge: For this week’s writing challenge, take on the theme of H2O. Just like water is still water, whether it’s solid, liquid, or gaseous, you are still yourself, whether you’re in the middle of a career change or identity shift. Hey, even dying your hair pink is just a different variation of you.

Whether we are rich or poor, we are what we think. Simple living is not what matters, simple thinking does.

“Simple living and high thinking” is a common adage we have been living with, right from our childhood. It is simple to understand, isn’t it? Live a simple life with the basic needs, have high aims in life and be happy.

What we perceived then and what we perceive now transmit vibes that are poles apart.

The irony: Everything is in the mind. The higher we think, the higher our hopes and expectations, and higher soars our greed. This ultimately lands one into a pit full of competition, jealousy and revenge. Over the years, experience explained, what actually matters is ‘think simple’.

So…

Simplicity is in the mind, not lifestyle,

Generosity is a quality divine;

Live your dreams, you have a lifetime;

Be human, spread the sunshine.

Good or bad is in the heart,

Show gratitude for what you’re bestowed;

How you live is a work of art;

Clean the soul for a heavenly abode.

Rich or poor, is in the mind,

If you are alive, you’ve to strive;

Think simple and just be kind,

If you’ve money, help others to survive.

Is it convincing?

It’s our dreams we try to connect!

Simple living and high thinking,

Does it make a man perfect?

Sia Positive

This is the Cover Photo of our newly created page in Facebook- “Sia Positive”. You can also find the Link in the widgets on the right of this page. Take a look! We won’t disappoint you for sure! Let our journey begin with you! 🙂

Facebook Page “Sia Positive” is a new Initiative towards Harmony- discover the blend of Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual and Laughter; all in one platform- 🙂

Over the years we’ve almost reached a level, where we have learned to live in a state of harmony with the universe. Both our head and heart work together to create a unique and well-balanced “us”.

We have always been ardent enthusiasts and  the energetic and fun-loving quality in us has assisted us to face the acute realities of life. We are impulsive, free-flowing and exciting and try to keep track of everything. We are spontaneous and never say no to any adventure. Often, we may end up surprising and even shocking people. But that’s just how we are!!

We always remain true and keep hunting for the truth. If something interests us, we will not rest until we have acquired a profound knowledge of that area.

When faced with a problem or a tough decision, we try to break things down and make a sensible choice. We have trained our heart such that we follow our gut when necessary. Though planning and discipline exist in our dictionary, there are instances when we love to throw in a little spontaneity.

An impulsive, but balanced  outlook and approach to life creates the desire in us to not only understand the world, but to also mold it as we see fit. We have come to learn that our life becomes what we make out of it; and this has helped us in our endeavor to understand life from so many wonderful perspectives.

Join us, while we take you on a journey to Harmony- an excellent blend of Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual (not religious) and Laughter.
