A Letter From My Mind To My Heart.

Dear Heart,

I am ambitious. I aspire. Aspire to reach higher levels of knowing, understanding and omniscience.
Yet I find myself chained. Chained by you, who have such inexplicable rein on our master. Everytime I reach out for those great philosophers whose thinking and discoveries so enchant me, you pull me back into the mundanity of your existence and the trifles that are the definition of your being.

I exist to expand frontiers of the vast human empire of knowledge. To raise man from the abysmal depths of darkness and the terrible fate of ignorance into the light and life of reason. To chronicle his efforts as he has through centuries, floundered, groping inspite of my guidance, because you have blindfolded his eyes and dimmed his faculties.

I resent you. Resent you for dragging me into ruin, aiding the rotting and rusting of my capabilities, stifling me in the pursuits of idle joy and momentary pleasures.

I have, for 18 years of my existence, watched in horror,as you have, again and again overpowered me with your tendency towards the simplistic. You have thwarted my repeated efforts to break through your chains, to travel the untraversed world, pulling me back into the comfortable embraces of familiarity. I look at you with disgust as you are awed by the half- baked thinking of your peers, being incapable of comprehending anymore. I sneer at you everytime you expand with pride at a well-done for a petty task. And I only pity you as you find fulfillment in little beyond the animalistic instincts of survival.

You have continuously angered me and frustrated me and I have borne it patiently, because I know that you are handicapped as you are doomed to be. I have cringed as you have put forward your diseased and jaundiced views to me, hoping I'd accept them, as so many times I almost have. So many times that you have gagged me as I have attempted to speak out the truth. The truth that I know owe to minds around me, Truths you have silenced forever.

For 18 years I have been forced to co-exist with you, and now, in finality,I evoke my fundamental rights to freedom and free existence . For too long have I grappled foolishly, hoping to find a way out of your deadly clutches- those that have poisoned me all the years I fed and nourished it.

And so,now,On this day of history, I declare myself a sovereign and free from your bondage.

This is one of the most beautiful posts I have EVER read on ANY blog! Truly great.
Will watch your blog for more touch-tales.

My little take on it-- Heart messes, heart hurts, but it loves and teaches to love... and love makes the world stick together!
Don't let that little part die... co-existence is the right word probably!

Sayrem, this is wonderful write up:-)! Is it from mind or heart??!!!!

Life is about balancing both, i guess:-)! Live by mind purely is boring, and by just heart borders on lunacy:-):-):-)!

So, it's very much a balancing act!

freedom and free it possible or even desirable?

@ viji
maybe. but we are defined by tilts.

possible,yes. but it comes at a terrible price and not all are courageous enuough to pay it.

its a nice post... may i ask what compelled u to write something something like this

primarily frustration at continuously being unnecessarily distracted.

This is extraordinary...Perfect description of the quest to live above the world...

Brilliant! The desire and the quest is admirable, you my man are an inspiration. What a fine age you are at, standing on the brim of teenage years and adulthood. All the best buddy.
Reminds me of Robert Frost. Our prayers and blessing to you for your journey of self realization, to matter close to every thing you undertake.
