Music can give wings to the mind and make you fly!

With music… life is never the same. Personal interpretations of rhythms and lyrics have seen me through the lowest lows and have catapulted me to the highest highs. I’ve experienced the unexplainable, shed tears of gratitude and even danced with joy while taking a shower or felt blissful while in the midst of traffic all because of music.

It has changed my being from within and continues to do so. Yes, I can experientially share that my music playlist has changed my life, so I pick my music wisely.

It’s 5:30 a.m. on a pleasant Sunday morning, every cell within is awake with excitement to experience sunrise. As I make my way to the machan overlooking the ocean with a cup of warm water I feel anchored in the present moment. The warmth of the cup against my palms in sharp contrast to the chillness of the breeze blowing along the contours of my hands leaves me in a state of wonderment. My tryst with nature has just begun…

As darkness fades, the light of dawn reveals a thick cloud cover looming over the horizon, but in my heart I know the sun will shine. Nature too in eager anticipation celebrates the moment with a musical symphony of crashing waves, singing birds and dancing leaves.

I plug in my earphones as the urge to listen to music takes over me. The song ‘Ek Udaan Kab Talak’ from the movie ‘Udaan’ begins to play as the sun bursts from behind the clouds painting the sky in hues of yellow and orange. Smaller clouds float like ornaments as they glow in fluorescent orange and decorate the sky. Mother Nature dazzles with this visual treat.

My attention suddenly falls upon a flock of birds drenched in the colour of the sky, manoeuvring effortlessly through stiff winds, they too are celebrating the moment. At this very moment the lyrics of the song go so deep within me… so deeps that it sparks a very strong desire, a desire to take flight and live my true potential.

Nadi mein talab hai
Kahin jo agar, samandar kahan door hai

When the river within aches to flow The vastness of the ocean waits with open arms

Damak ki garaz hai, sone mein agar
To jalna bhi manzoor hai

The treasure trove of gold within wants to shine bright And I’m prepared to burn and get rid of the impurities

Ik udaan kab talak yun kaid rahegi
Roko na chod do isse

Till when will I continue to keep myself grounded It’s time to let go and push myself off the runway… It’s time for me to fly

Ik udaan hi sapno ko zindagi degi
Sapno se jod do isse

This flight will give life to my dreams And I’m going to live my dream… It’s time to fly

Purani daleelon, rasmon ko sabhi
Abhi se kahe alvida

I’m waving goodbye Goodbye to everything from my past that has held me back

Badalte dino ke tareekon se
Seechein hum naya gulistan

As I water the garden of my dreams With this new-found willingness to fly high… It’s time to fly!

Even when I know what is right, choose to do what isn’t.

Even though I know there are things holding me back  choose not to fight them. I am my biggest hurdle.

As I listen to the music, song and sing along, darkness fades and reality shines, the hurdles disappear as my wings spread and every cell within wants to fly. It’s time to let go and not hold myself back, for it is all in my hands… and I am going to fly and live my true potential. My Tryst with Nature.
