"Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash.
Oh baby with your pretty face... Drop a tear in my wineglass.
Look at those big eyes. See what you mean to me..
Sweet-cakes and milkshakes.. I'm a delusion angel..I'm a fantasy parade.
I want you to know what I think. Don't want you to guess anymore.
You have no idea where I came from. We have no idea where we're going.
Lodged in life.. Like branches in a river Flowing downstream...Caught in the current.
I carry you. You'll carry me. That's how it could be.
Don't you know me? Don't you know me by now? "
This is my favorite quote from the movie Before Sunrise. If one looks at it, it might mean a little something to someone or it might be profound for another. For me, its the latter. This quote has a lot of meaning and relevance to my life. I think these few sentences would add up to almost everything that I believe in life. Those few people who know me and understand me, would know exactly why I say so. I have always been a person who lives in the present than the future. To me life is to be lived to the fullest, not by planning for that one thing and living it then, but living it now. Live it now and live it the best. Accept it the way it is. Look at the beauty of this moment. This moment might just slip away from your hands like sand before you even realize what you had. Take this moment now. Mould it into something spectacular. Why wait for those expected few moments and make sure that you remember them? Instead just let go. You might make the most ordinary moment special without even knowing that you are doing so. That will be the moment which will take you by surprise and will get traced in your memory forever. One more quote which explains this perfectly is the one from the movie Fight Club. "This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time. "
Live, laugh and love. Love with all that you have. Do not hold back. If you love someone, you may or may not be loved back. Do not expect anything in return. Do not expect anyone and everyone to understand you and your thoughts. This was an important one. I wouldn't have realized the gravity of this thought until today and until some time back. What I understood today is that one might love a person, but to really love someone, you have to learn to love that person's flaws. Quite a lot of times I feel, why think of a future with a person when you have a beautiful present at your hand at this moment? I somehow feel that, it is the thought of a future with another person that ruins the best of loving relationships. When you think of a future, you start expecting a certain kind of behavior from the other person and when that person fails to behave so, you feel wronged. Instead why not just flow in the river of time, lodged like the the branches flowing downstream. Yes, just like those branches. They are entwined just like two lovers lost in each others' eyes with arms locked together. They are flowing down the stream of time. Neither one knows where they are headed to. I'll carry you and you'll carry me. Lets just be. Be in this moment. Lets love passionately as if there is no tomorrow. Why care about attaining and achieving that perfect future, when the present moment is in our hands?
I want to live free, passionately and in this moment. I want to love. Love, that binding and yet free kind of love. I want to create that special moment with you right now. Who knows what lies in the future? If at all we separate, I will have the best of your memories with me forever. Sometimes it is better to live the present with one another beautifully, and when you wave goodbye, you know you didn't ruin the charm and beauty of that love by adding the burden of expectations or holding on to it for too long. I think you will know me soon or maybe never. Any which ways, I will love you, without expecting you to understand me. Just love me back today, intimately and passionately. I do not know about tomorrow...
