An open mind. A romantic heart. And some simple and audacious surprises!

Simple and Audacious

I was sitting down for my first public singing in Boston, because if I stood up people could see how bad I was trembling out of fear.

Mysteries of life are infinite and unfathomable. Not everything in your life will be joyous. You will experience great loss and hurt in your journey.

I did.

Did you as well?

There came a time I wanted to end it all. The journey itself. And It wasn’t the first time. But this time I had a very strong storm brewing inside me. Not a good storm. I did not know how to contain it. I could not. I was screaming inside. Those screams had no words. But they felt as if something inside me was desperately trying to find a way to be calm again. The more it tried, the more the screaming grew, and the storm kept getting stronger and uncontainable.

Then a mysterious voice whispered inside me. It was not sudden. It was very gentle. I don’t know where it came from. But it said – Just live a simple and audacious life. Work for simple and audacious purposes.

Everything became calm again. In an instant. And it did not feel sudden or abrupt at all.  In that moment I felt, yes I shall now live by.. In that moment I *knew* I would now live by the simple and audacious value system.

The details of such value system emerged later, very slowly.

  1. Listen to the mysterious voice inside you.
  2. Let things brew for a while. Then go all in. Very similar to how Vivekananda said - “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea .. work on it.”
  3. Keep it fun.
  4. Keep it simple.
  5. Definitely keep it audacious.
  6. If you are excited and scared at the same time, you will know you are doing it right.
  7. Share your journey with others. Be part of theirs.

The list below has things that emerged as I listened to all the profound and silly voices in me.

Come, lets share some adventures!
