Mir Moiz’s Weblog

Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

ColdPlay – Fix You

.
.
Fix You
When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And on your face I…
Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And on your face I…
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Happy Valentines!

May your life be filled with beautiful smiles,
May you cheer in the winds of pleasure,

May you delve in the deep oceans of serenity,
May you ravish the sweet charms of wonder,

May you be graced with the blessings of the heavens,
May you fly upon the clouds of wisdom,

May you breath the air of peace within,
… but most of all, my sweetest friend, may you be happy happy happy forever.

I cherish you for who you have become in these past few months – bravo
… and I wish for your continued happiness.

Happy Valentines Sid – Keep smiling

Captain of thy Hollow Vessel!

I had a dream once. I saw that I was up hundreds of feet afloat in the air – in the middle of the sea.
I felt the air move aroud me and the clouds touch, but I would not realize that I could fall and would not be afraid of  falling either.
Then I saw that I am looking up from the bottom of the deepest lake, lying there in peaceful serenity. Light shining from the top right in the crystal waters where I also see this elephant in the middle that is swimming above in the water peddling its feet to reach the other side. I was fearless here as well, not afraid to drown or to die from lack of air or from the shear thrill of being hundreds of feet underwater.
While I dreamt these and many others in a similar sense of presence where the element of ‘impossible’ existed – I found myself in a sense of peace – yet all alone …
… in the impossible, having conquered the impossible – but all alone.
Are there people out there that can relate with my words, that can understand what the feeling is like and have experienced it day in and out for themselves – I wonder!
I feel like the fish that swims against the stream, that challenges tradition and finds happiness in the achievement of the ‘impossible’.

Yea soul seek thy truth
thy pleasures and thy happiness
Yea soul seek thy mysteries
thy honor and thy self
Yea soul seek thy treasures
thy wonders and thy pride
Yea soul seek thy heavens
thy hell and thy life
Yea soul tho should stand in awe of thy being
thy wish to live in thy element
Yea soul tho art the captain of thy hollow vessel
.
Feel abundant – feel free!

Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish: Teach every child about food

Jamie has been an inspiration for me for a long time. This guy started to put magic in the a field of work that in the modern age utopia of “processed food” got lost somewhere … Cooking.

For being a cook and a damn good one he adds value by being a young guy truly passionate about what he does.

In this TED video, you would see him express his awareness and belief of how “Food” plays the most pivotal role in the word dynamics.
