It's not just the serenity. It's not just the solitude. It's not just the eyegasmic view.
The mountians ring with the tales of the parts of the huge world, I've not yet accepted and the realization that we are nobodies, sitting amongst the wonders of the world.

The fifth principle of my life is one that I've come to realize quite recently: There's a concrete demarcation between your real life and social life, and you should not mix both of these worlds together.
I have been active on Instagram mainly since the last two years, before which most of my feed was blessed with cringe selfies and wanderlust posts, every once in a while. With time, as my participation as well as engagement rose, I became more aware of the responsibility that comes along with my posts and words. I wasn't someone who could easily talk about my personal life on social media, it's still a journey I'm undertaking, though I have managed to come a long way.
The first lesson was, not everything on social media is real. Though simple , it hits you like a boulder. Everyone wants you to think they are popular, likable, living their best life- but at the end of the day, they are real and reality isn't all roses. Don't get me wrong, I think social media can be a great platform to reach out to people, exhibit your talents and gain peer support.
But, to me, at the end of the day it is a world different from my reality. For instance, many people on reading my posts, told me they expected a more serious person when they met me. While, I on the other hand, in flesh and bone am a person who can't keep still and keeps cracking lame jokes with no climax.
Before people realize it, they become the victims of the facades they created for themselves, a life that is different and they lose sense of what counts and what does not. What is real and what isn't. Rather than taking the platform as a source of motivation, a stage for exhibition, some people take it as a meter that defines their worth to them leading to feelings of inadequacy and the classic, "Why isn't my life that happening?" As people start to grow here, things start to revolve around, how many likes you got, how many followers increased today, what can you do to please them, that one negative comment that gets you down the whole day. I also want to gain engagement and support, but I am still on a road that will teach me, this world is not my real world.

Nature strives to create a balance and we do everything in our power to damage that effort.
Humans, the know-it-alls, having such great intellect, ironically stoop as low as determining their dominance upon nature's laws.
Survival fuels every entity made by nature yet we are the defiants who let other forces drive us.
To be human is to feel the need to be superior, establish your authority and let people be aware of it.
No animal feels the need to kill without it aiding to their survival.
Some stay willing to put their lives on stake for us. Forgive us for the wrongs we sometimes can't forgive ourselves for and love us unconditionally for who we are, and who we can be. It there's one entity that we can seek guidance from, dogs would be the first priority.

The fourth one and one which mostly governs your own personal happiness. Trust the vibes, vibes don't lie. Surround yourself with positivity, your happiness is in your own hands and the circle you choose can help you prosper and can also wreak your development and bring you down.
I know, at the beginning, it is very difficult to fathom whether a person adds value to your life or not, but what I've noticed is, when you find yourself with an incompatible person or a person who doesn't want the best for you; with time, you will always notice some warning signs but many people choose to ignore those signs repeatedly for various reasons.
The core nature or as the Urdu term goes, the "Fitrat" of people never changes. Yes, there are always some exceptions but there's a reason why they are called so, because they form a handful. If you have a person in your life that doesn't make you like the person you are in their presence, or gives you insecurities, or makes you question your priorities- sometimes, it can be a figment of your own mind playing tricks on you, but even so, when people are naturally bound to fit together, nothing can beat the happiness of being with a friend in a positive friendship.
It doesn't necessarily mean, that the person is bad. I personally believe no one is really bad, people just do bad things like I sometimes may, or someone else might. Giving second chances and forgiveness is also a sign of your own heart, but never compromise anything for your own happiness. That always comes first. Try to find a way around relationships but when it becomes too hard to be in, even when logic may speak otherwise, break yourself away and rethink the priorities in your life.

The third one: What is the meaning of money in my life?
Luckily, I grew up in a generation and place where video games and fancy toys weren't in, rather our playtime was spent on the streets and parks where we'd play till the time we heard our parents shout from the doorway. It was never, "I'll get these new sneakers or video games, if I do something well." Our minds weren't wired that way. We got our happiness from making bats out of wood and balls out of rolled up plastic, and getting bruises on our knees and elbows at the end of the day.
I think my roots that go back like that, have affected me a great deal in who I am today. I want to earn money, I want to be successful as well. In fact, I can appreciate ambitious people who have certain exceptional qualities. But, in my case, I've never been desperate for money, only managing to see every moment of life in terms of its monetary terms. At one point of my life, I have also wanted to earn so that I can buy fancy cars or a luxurious standard of living, but now I've reached a point where I have a will to earn, but I don't know where I would spend that money. The fancy cars and super bikes don't dazzle me anymore.
People want to earn money for those things and there's nothing wrong with that, if that makes you happy. Actually, it's better than trying to churn money day in and out without having any aspirations from it. Right now, I feel, the money that can make me most happy is one that gives me a decent standard of living, can assure the health of my loved ones and their happiness. That's the kind of money I want.
Also, in the world we live in, it is not easy to not become occupied with these things. The world is damn competitive and unless you don't make it to the top, you feel worthless. If your friends earn more than you, you feel inadequate. I feel, when you work and your work starts becoming influenced by your desire to earn money from it, it loses its heart and that's the worst thing you can do to a product of your hardwork.

So, here goes the second one, another guiding principle of my life: Work hard but do not expect anything in return. I know, easier said than done but at the end of the day, it's a battle you fight in your own mind.
When I graduated and started working, I was in the sales department and my boss, although not the best one, did tell me a few things that have stuck with me till now. The product I had to vouch for wasn't really one of the best ones in the market and for some reason, maybe a lack of my persuasive skills or my reluctance to lie about it, I wasn't a veteran in the field.
One day, my boss asked me something, "How desperate are you to sell this product?" and I did reply with a quick yes because I thought I was, I truly wanted to be an asset to the company. He said, " Imagine I try to drown you in water, what will you do?" "I'll try to get out", I replied. "But what if I don't let you?" "I'll channelize every ounce of energy I have. I have to get out. There's no option. I want to live." He told me, the day I become that desperate, passionate to do something is the day I'll begin to truly become an ace at it.
The thing is, all of us have a circle of influence that has variables that can be controlled by us. Through, controlling these variables, we can control many things in our life. Then, there's a world outside that circle of influence which we can't control and 90% of the time, we spend worrying about those things that we cannot control than the ones we can.
The advice my boss gave me years ago has stuck with me till now because through experiences, I have realized, I really cannot control some things. What I can do, is passionately pursue what I like to, and the chips will fall where they may. Everyone wants to be happy. Right now, if due to "luck" or "fate" or anything out of our control doesn't work in our favor, I can always lose my spirit or I can continue to do what I want to, without a care in the world, happily- because that's the ultimate goal. Being happy, not being successful.

I'm a firm believer in energy and most of what I've gathered about it has been from my own will and experiences rather than a concrete text. If I look at who I am and what my life has been in a larger view, I realize there are some principles that are the guiding points of my life. Principles, that govern every inch of what I do, how I act and react, how I perceive what goes around me and how I think. I will continue to discuss each one of them in the following posts, starting with one that goes back a long way : a strong faith.
This is one of those things that has gotten me through the worst phases in my life and I can't define who I am today without referring to my faith. I've come to realize that whatever happens, happens for the best even though it may seem otherwise at the moment because there are certain larger plans we don't have a notion of.
We, as people, are bound to make mistakes and that's what makes us human. Where our failure lies, each attribute of Allah take over and that is what makes us different. We have a tendency to begin to regard people who achieve great things in this life as the ones we should ultimately look up to but our tendency to fall down, make mistakes, be good and bad and doubtful is what ultimately make us human. What ultimately makes us seek guidance and have a faith that gets us through each day.
Through the years I have been trekking, I've picked up a lesson here and there from the mountains, and a slow realization that dawned upon me during every trek was- the destination will never come to you, and the only way you can set your eyes upon it, is by pushing hard and taking a step.
Patience will take you great lengths but not when it hasn't been backed up by hard work. You can always let life take its own turns and expect all the chips to fall in place, or you can go out there and do something about it.
Things might not always go as planned. You might not achieve your hardwork's worth sometimes but these things are also changing variables of the equation you govern. I refuse to believe that the hard work you put does not amount to anything.
Maybe, right now, it may seem so. Maybe, somebody else seems to be having it easier but your work is never futile, it always brings about a revolution in your life.

When the frost knits it's way through my heart,
When the rooted memories come to part,
A frail heap of fragile bones I'd stand,
Lingering to crumble into the land
For when death pants heavily on my nape,
When the mirror is shoved for me to gape,
At the frail heap of pathetic bones that lie,
I'll glance at the life I sought and cry,
At the time that passed so swiftly by
I never really learnt about the small beauties of life until I started to travel. It's when this journey started, that I realised, how travelling is much more than visiting beautiful places and meeting new people.
You can travel to the other corner of the world but it would amount to nothing, unless wherever you go, you go with all your heart and an open mind. You can travel to an old market in the corner of your town, when the streets are half lit by the moonlight and the breeze touches you softly, and call it a journey.
It's never a matter of money. It's a matter if courage, of a yearning to learn about the world. Make every day of your routine life a travel journey without having to stamp your passport. Travelling isn't about the places, but the person these places make you.
The blazing sun doesn't care about a second chance. With each object fulfilling its duty, you can't help but look around, and feel like you're the only one stuck in time.
With each man battling his own will everyday, you're too tired of giving up; so you can't help but take another step forward.
Leaving the house is always the tough part, but once you're out there, the world will teach you how to survive and you will learn to fight with nothing. You will emerge victorious. You will take steps forward because there is no place to turn back to.
