You must be thinking why the title is such a cheesy line as “whispers of the heart”. My answer would be love for animated movies. When you see movies which are heartwarming and they enlighten your soul like it’s a new lesson of your life, those movies are carved onto your heart like a piece of your soul written in your destiny. Whisper of the heart is such a heartwarming movie which will leave you mesmerizing and what you will remember is why the title of movie was such a cheesy line.
In this world, between billion people, our hearts are connected with few. But we are connected in such a way that we can listen them even if we don’t talk at all. Those silent conversations between two hearts are like whispers because only those hearts would understand each other. Every person who has such companion or people around them is a blessed one. You know it’s hard to find people with whom we don’t have to talk about everything because they can understand us in various ways of life. They can understand our heartbeats like they are whispers of our heart.
I know you are going to ask why whispers because whispers can be spread easily. But you know, to understand the whispers, you need to have a heart which listens. A heart which only beats will just keep your body alive but a heart which listens will keep your soul awake. It will enlighten your soul as whispers of the heart are often screams and sorrows when you’re in pain or either it can be the joy your heart feels when it finds something which soothes your soul.
Whispers are like enchantments but for your heart which also enlighten your soul. As we grow up, we don’t want to converse about everything in life but we expect people to understand it. But people who can understand it are the ones who are connected with your heart like heartbeats. People who can listen to your heart. People who can understand those whispers and make you feel like you’re part of their soul, never apart, never away.
Who says blessed people are the ones who do the good things, but blessed ones are those who can listen to whispers of the heart and make sure life is alright for those whispers.
“Somebody said to me, i didn’t find peace in my life. Did you try to pray, i replied.”
Crying is a natural process in our life. We start our life with crying when we are born and then we cry from time to time as our lives revolve around us and people who are part of that life. Crying is never bad until you do it unnecessarily. As crying was the first thing you did when you were born, so in my opinion there is nothing as soothing as crying to take out all the burden on your shoulders and empty you heart. We have people around us with whom we can be comfortable and we lean on their shoulders to cry.
Our muffled voices can be heard by people around us and sometimes that might make us uncomfortable. But when we know people around us and just that thought that they will support us, make everything alright and you cry to let your heart out like it’s been buried with sorrows and pain. As we grow up, our tendency to cry in front of people just fades away and we make sure that we don’t cry in front of people. Not because we don’t want to, but crying in front of people will make us weak, will make us vulnerable to threats and you want to avoid such things in life.
But have you ever asked question from yourself that who hears when souls cry? Who hears when souls muffle? Who hears when souls cry due to pain they can’t bear and they tend to give up? Who hears when souls need a shoulder to cry but they didn’t get any? Our souls cry like we do but most of us can’t hear them. But people who can hear them, did you ever try to find what kind of pain they go through? The pain of souls who cry is unbearable. Sometimes you might feel like you ears might bleed but you understand how life went for them and what they seek are forgiveness from this world. Sometimes all you need to find peace within yourself else your soul will travel in after world just to get rotten and all people will hear their screams of pain and apathy.
As we often wonder in world of dreams and nightmares but what we feel are those lost souls carry the messages between two worlds. Those worlds might be drifting apart but somehow these souls connect to these worlds like bridges. You might travel from one world to another while these souls guide you, but the pain, screams, echoes of their silence might give you an heartache which you might not bear. You are a blessed one if you can hear the pain and screams of the souls who cry. But you are something else if you can hear cries of your own soul. Sometimes all you need is to be kind and forgiving enough so that you can forgive your past so that you don’t live in it anymore.
“Best things in this world are sometimes not things but they are the feelings which touch the souls”.
We all are part of this journey called life where we create some memories and some memories create us. But as we grow, we look forward for new things in life and we create new memories by molding the old ones like wrappers into our memory bucket. But best thing about memories is they are not replaceable like materialistic things in this world. Once a memory has been created, it stays with you until you die.
Also as we move on in life, we create new memories every day every second. We remember some, we forget some and some just cling like a heartache to the soul. Those memories are either part of your joyful days or your sad past. More you want to erase them, more strongly they will cling to your soul. It’s more like a habit that you want to give up but in the end it just consumes you like anything.
Some of the best memories you create in your lifetime are from childhood when you live freely without giving a second thought about this world. But as we grow up, our thought process isn’t the same and our mind becomes a paradox of our memories. Those memories recites your pain and sometimes pain recites those memories. Beauty of memories lies within the moments it scatters in front of us and make us realize that we did some great, awful, adventurous, kind things in life.
My best memories were the ones which i kept in a jar somewhere in the corner of mind so that they don’t pop up anytime and give me surprise. Now, you would ask why in the jar? Why to lock away the happy, joyful memories? I didn’t imprisoned them but you know, in order to create new memories you need to forget the old ones. As world is changing, so are you, than how you are going to create new memories with a past living in it. Maybe happy or sad, these memories make a world of your own. Sometimes all you want to do is to swim in that world of memories and never come out. But life isn’t all about being happy neither being sad all the time.
So always keep creating memories while emptying the old ones. Until you have room for old ones, new ones will slip away like sand from your hand. Room full of old memories need to be vacant so that new ones will find their place. Your mind is a gift but you know sometimes gifts make us vulnerable. They find what’s missing in our heart, body and soul and wreck us from within.
So always keep your room of memories vacant so that people who come in your life can create new memories with you, for you.
आँखों में सपने बहुत हैं,
लकिन उन सपनो की मजबूरियां बहुत हैं,
दिल टूट जाता है सपने पूरे करने में,
उस दिल की भी मजबूरियां बहुत हैं,
रोज खुद से खुद को मना लेते हैं,
यूँ तो खुद की भी मजबूरियां बहुत हैं,
थाम ले कोई हाथ अपना भी गम के समय में,
लकिन उन् हाथों की भी मजबूरियां बहुत हैं,
यूँ तो हर कोई आजमाने में लगा है मुझको,
लकिन खुद से खुद को आजमाने की मजबूरियां बहुत हैं,
मंज़िलों के इस सफर में एक हमसफ़र की तलाश है,
लकिन जो साथ दे उस हमसफ़र की भी मजबूरियां बहुत हैं,
सीने से लगाए बैठे हैं यादों के तकिए को,
कोई तनहा छोड़ गया क्यूंकि जिंदगी में मजबूरियां बहुत हैं|
He was traveling again, trying to runaway from his day to day life. As he always used to say, life spent in memories of past is a life wasted. Thus he thought of traveling again, allowing him to stay away from his past and refresh his mind by clearing all vague thoughts. Traveling always left him mesmerizing because he always found true happiness in form of mother nature.
Nothing excites him like new places, either it be a mountain valley or a roadside walk with mother nature. He just kept looking for answers he couldn’t find from people. He was searching for answers of life which left him midst of nowhere. He couldn’t decide where he wanted to go or whether even he wanted to start a journey called love. But you don’t have control over things in life. Sometimes you just go on with what’s happening in life and at one point you just want to give up. He already passed that point but he didn’t give up and instead of everything, he started a new journey by carrying all the burdens of past with himself. Although initially it wasn’t as he planned but he overcame every odd of life. He started to learn clues which life kept leaving at some point but he couldn’t grasp earlier. He was becoming one with his soul. He was becoming more spiritual which allowed him to have conversations with himself and God. More answers he found through traveling to different places, more he was going away from materialistic world. He was able to find serenity within his mind and heart as he was becoming one with his soul.
Traveling became his life, allowing him to leave his bag of memories behind;baggage which he never wanted to carry, baggage which was once his life in every essence. Somewhere between all those kisses and whispers with love of his life, he found everything. But life isn’t as simple as it seems. It took away everything from him in a second and his love was no more in this world. He cried continuously for almost a week and then he decided to visit new places because old ones were like heartaches, always there, never out of sight. Journeys reminded him how lonely people are in this world but for him, he carried the baggage of his soul and her dreams. He was standing on the edge of a cliff like he wanted to jump and end his life, but he could do only one thing. He shouted for one last time, i miss you Aaina.
