“Enter your inner self in order to see the life you desire.”

–Aniekee Tochukwu

Why knowing yourself is not your first priority?

We are most terrified of visiting our own self. So, many of us go through each day events, reacting and focusing on everything else, but to take a conscious inward journey by delving much deeper. Even if we do, our quest for soul searching is surprisingly a booby-trapped pursuit. I believe that a sincere deep inner journey can possibly swing the hard ground underneath, but it can also open up whole new revelation of our submerged potentials. Why not? In fact, we are born to make manifestation of the splendour of our deepest light that is within us. Our personality is reflection of our inner self. We are meant to shine in this world. It is our life force that makes us find reasons to get up in the morning for doing something meaningful!

“With time, every dimension of our life should turn simpler”

“Keep yourself away from acidic people, they will oxidize your soul”

“Life Irony: We yearn and work so hard to make a toddler speak and then ask him to “keep quiet” as he grows”

“Your existence and obligations are directly proportionate to your ability to take tough decisions”

“A concerted blending of Individuality, ego, and yearnings is an incontrovertible recipe to cook-up a megalomaniac monster”

“Most of the time we diffidently host our dream as an elusive idea in our own mind”

“When you centrifuge righteousness, valour, strength and candour– ‘Integrity’ precipitates”

“People with outsized ‘Ego’ are generally atheist. They hardly have any space for the God in that cramped room”

“Present is not time. Time only epitomizes Past and Future. Present is truth and boundless. Live in Present”

“Your past is only a satchel, full of ‘idiosyncratic remembrance’. And your future is just a “mirage of imaginings”. So, learn to live in present” 

“Don’t be harsh to others. Instead, when people aren’t as gentle to you as they should be, forgive them”

“A distorted and charged reaction like anger only brings myriad indissoluble sorrows in our life”

“Warped minds can only pass on degenerated hateful thoughts. Your hang-out choices define your character”

“Hinging on someone else for the happiness is like keeping consciousness completely unfertile”

“Life is really bewildering. At times, one door opens to more doors and sometimes opens to blind dark underpass”

“Anger quarantines us. It can only harm. Action born out of bitterness can only feed abhorrence to our intellect”

“Only when mind and intellect are at equipoise, we are at the ingress of an unobtrusive mind”

“The language you use is indispensably important. Try and side-step arguments. Humility gives you a position of advantage over others”

“When we consciously indulge in discovering within, there will be spurt of negative sentiments, making us to run away without even looking back”

“One can detach from ego only by knowing it well. Humility is also like a cultured ego. It is, at times, ornamental”

With this… I conclude my trilogy on Reflections: Impressions!


Entire experience enthralled me. I must express a special thanks to all of you for encouraging me to downpour my thoughts on this space. Someday , I shall go down to our countryside and share my feelings with millions of our unprivileged natives through the window of some platform… and see if it helps.

This is not a goodbye, only “hasta luego” or “so long”.
