There is this one...




There is this scene in 'Fight Club', where the insomniac protagonist attends some sort of meditation/empowerment session, and the guide asks everyone to close their eyes and visualize their power animal, followed by their power word. For some reason, Edward Norton sees a Penguin, and hears the word 'Slide'. 


There is this one moment in our life, when something simple like a butterfly's wing flap alters the entire course of our story. 


There is this one visitor, who speaks of one experience that makes us realize the value of everything we hold and everything we don't. 


There is this one written work, which makes us pause and reveals a new meaning every time we read it.


There is this one act of kindness, that makes us forget all differences and act selflessly.


There is this one person, in whom you find your mirror. 


Donnie Darko in 'Donnie Darko' sees a man-sized bunny, who says nothing, but some-how constantly reminds him of a greater purpose, or bigger responsibility ~ To restore the time-space continuum.


Which is that one moment, when you finally say "I have arrived"?



Which is that ground you can call home? 


Which is that one thing, other than yourself that you trust more?


What power does it give you, to know that, you have finally imprinted your existence?


How does it feel to look at yourself through someone else's eyes? 


Quite often, its difficult to zero in on an exact moment when we tipped over. Its a slow gradual change, which grows within us un-noticed or intentionally. Nevertheless, its a difficult excercise to repeat or explain or teach some one else how we exactly went through it. This is when 'memories can be trecherous'. We selectively remember what our brain wishes to remember. 


There is this one experience, where no single element of it needs alteration. 


There is this one event, where just being present makes all the difference.


There is this one conversation, where just being silent conveys all that is to be said. 


There is this one journey, where the journey itself is all that matters and not the destination.


There is this one challenge, which will tax all that you are composed of and bring out a new you.


Not every discovery is made amidst war, adversity or necessity. Some of them, do gently mist down upon us quietly in silent moments of tranquility and recollection.


There is this one story, which you can write one  whole day, and still come back and write some more.......



Hoping to come back and write some more....
