Breaking Shackles Of The Ocean Of Conditioned Society

Have you ever drowned in the ocean of society? Having tasted the emptiness of positions and perks, society roles and responsibilities?

Hypocrisy breeds yet ironically aren’t we’re all immersed somewhere in this conditioned ideology?

Aren’t we always in a hurry and are frantically running to fulfil the dreams fuelled by this toxic energy?

Dreams manufactured by someone else’s imagination; have you awoken from the dream embedded within the dream ad. infinitum?

Have you never dreamt of being a free soul?Having roamed the creation in its beatific glow?

It is time my friend that we break the shackles of the past, and fly away in the heavens vast!

This nothing they tell us, constitutes the everything.

Welcome to society, we promise we won’t deceive. And it’s cultivated for us to puncture the worn out tyre system and go beyond, leave.

Ashok and Amber β€” our first collaboration.

  3. Agreed 100000, when you let go of the shackles, you will find what real life is about and how many wonderful people are out there, how many doors will welcome you with warm smile and hug. Touched deeply. Thanks for giving us a epic poem.

  4. A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…
    β€œDad, look the trees are going behind!”
    Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed…
    β€œDad, look the clouds are running with us!”
    The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…
    β€œWhy don’t you take your son to a good doctor?” The old man smiled and saidβ€¦β€œI did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”
    EveryΒ single person on the planet has a story.

    P.s nice postβ™₯️

  10. Maybe we couldn’t reach you Arjun – the poem is not about escaping the unpleasant realities. It is about leaving the rat race …. most of us are prisoners of our environment.

    Thank you so much for taking time to read and comment

  11. this post is true we always find ourselves in the ocean of the society of doing this that etc. and no one is a free soul here and someone needs to break this ocean live happily

  12. You are so kind to me my young friend πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—
    Once we become conscious of the fact that we are shackled by our environment, chances of breaking free are good. With the grace of God I did it more than two decades back. We are not only bound we are also controlled… we are in the Matrix 😊

    Wishing you a free and joyous life my dear. Thank you so much for your love

  13. First of all, you have incredible talent with the pen, Ashok. Your words are music to my ears. Second of all, this post carries a very good message, sometimes it can be difficult to follow, but it’s importannt to always have it near our hearts. Society affects us so much that it can be hard to seperate it’s claws from our skin so that we can think on our own and be unique – but we all must stlll try. Thank you so much for sharing this important message with your followers.

  14. Thank you so much Aanchal. Once the urge is strong we do find ways and means to break the shackles. Keep pulling on the chain and one day the Divine shall intervene and you shall be free πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

  15. I guess we all want to come over this but still we keep ourselves drowning in this ocean. We are always defined and judged by rights or wrongs which itself is so uncertain.
    Yours words potrayed the reality so well, sir .πŸ€—πŸ™‚

  16. So true! For a bigger change to happen, it has to start at an individual level and even in that, its should start with some questions that we need to pose to ourselves..I hope to be a reason of one such change, even in the smallest of ways..thank you for the blessingsπŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

  17. I believe that our overall consciousness level would go up. It is for each individual to look after himself.

    In every generation there are some who will not follow the mob Trisha. They are the ones who help the society to evolve and change. May you be one such person in your environment πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

  18. I hope we don’t end up making the same mistakes again…I hope we really bring a change for good this time… and I hope everybody becomes wiser enough to learn their lessons well…I feel sometimes our generation really undermines the wisdom that your generation has and had back in the days..

  19. Once this is over most of us would go back to our old ways ☺️

    With God’s grace I had seen the futility of all this long long back 😊

  20. Please do write. Would look forward to reading it. So, today is a milestone day then and 50 years makes it all the more special πŸ™‚

  21. So true. Agree with the collaborative words. We need to break the monotony. Enjoyed the collaboration. Congratulations!

  22. I had briefly mentioned this in my book Neel. Might write about it one of these days. In fact today would have been the ideal day – it was on the 31st of May 50 years ago that I had started to work 😊

  23. I can very well imagine. I have so many friends who have done that and I am super proud of all of them. I do wish I would have the courage too. Have you written about it? Would love to read.

  24. Thank you so much!!

    Yes Neel it is not easy but possible. With God’s grace I did it more than two decades back and life has been awesome since then.

  25. Yes Ashok if few of us get together and pray to God for his grace and mercy on all of us he will surely hear our sincere prayers. Love and blessings to you too dear Ashok πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸŒ·

  26. So deep and meaningful. The real treasure that remains elusive to most of us, while we spend all our energy and resources running after things that are perishable. Dreaming dreams that are created by others. Hope we start to shed off some of those conditioned ideologies. Easier said than done, but we have to believe and start somewhere. Thank you for this post. πŸ™‚

  27. Inshaallah you shall Samreen πŸ™

    Thank you so much for your kind words, love and support. I am sure you have great life ahead for you and Inshaallah we shall roam the world together πŸ’–πŸ€—

  28. As long as we are aware we shall find a way out. Thank you so much my friend with a beautiful heart and mind πŸ’–πŸ€—

  29. That is great Malaika. I had realised the emptiness of the so called successful life in mid 90s and had quit the rat race on 9th October 1998 😊 Life has been awesome ever since.

    Am so glad for you. Keep shining your light and stay blessed πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

    Thank you so much 😊

  30. Thank you so much my young friend – for your kind words and love. A big hug πŸ€—

    Hope your best friend is still around 😊 and that life is treating you well…

  31. Wonderful… Much needed introspection .. to not blindly follow the rat race and build your own dreams πŸ€—πŸ™‚

  32. Such beautiful and inspiring thoughts Kamal. Thank you so much 😊 🌹

    I sincerely hope and pray that our small community can be another catalyst to bring in this transformation Kamal.

    Love and blessings πŸŒΉπŸ€—πŸŒΉ

  33. Thoughts so beautifully poured out depicting the reality.. I so want to break the shackles to roam free dumping the baggage of my mind this society uploads. Very well written uncleπŸ€—πŸ’•

  34. A very meaningful poem and successful collaboration, Ashok and Amber! It’s sad trying to live someone else’s dreams or satisfy someone else’s expectations.

    All the best! ❀

  35. Ashok, your collaboration with Amber complements a message I heard from American pastor, Charles Stanley. Instead of running to spend time with our ever-changing gadgets, we should experience the peace from reading God’s Word.

  36. Wow Ashok, this is your best writeup that I have read. It just hugs me through, in a way, even my writings couldn’t do today. How could I thank you enough to put it so delicately. Sending much love.

  37. Well done, dear Ashok!! So deep and filled with truth. Keep inspiring, my friend…people are lucky to know the amazing Ashok πŸ–€πŸ€—

  38. Wow and wow a great collaboration with Amber. I loved the picture it was awesome. Hope we could all live in a world free of hatred, anger, jealousy and wars and live in a world of happiness, joy, peace and Love letting go of this toxic energy and filling ourselves with abundant energy of Purity and Compassion. Marvelous and brilliant poem, Ashok.

  39. Succinct having great message…

    “Aren’t we always in a hurry and are frantically running to fulfil the dreams fuelled by this toxic energy?”
    Indeed, many are running behind this toxic energy and as rightly said, it’s time to create a new society… Beautiful post sir… πŸ™‚

  40. It is time my friend that we break the shackles of the past, and fly away in the heavens vast!

    I loved these lines in particular. Here’s to freeing ourselves from our invisible shackles. Absolutely loved this!

  41. Wow 🀩 I would love to have beautiful and zestful Cindy as my copilot πŸ’–πŸ€—

    Thank you so much my dear friend

  42. Absolutely Nina. We should let others be… we can become good role models for others.

    I had quit the so called rat race more than two decades back and am so happy about that πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

  43. Such inspiration and dreaminess in your piece Ashok…..
    ….breaking the shackles and flying.
    I’ll be your co-piolet. Beautiful imageryβ£οΈβ€οΈπŸ€—πŸ˜˜

  44. Some rats will continue to race no matter whatβ€”nothing we can do but let them run up ahead. But we don’t have try and keep up with themβ€”this is the shackle. We can stop running after the rats and instead let our wings naturally unfold so we may fly. Something like this?

  45. Wowww! Dear ashok! Really I liked it very much. You are amazing. Wonderful piece. Very beautifully written. Keep rocking my dear friend!πŸ’–πŸ€—

  46. Thank you so much Nina.

    What I am trying to say here is to break the shackles of the conditioned environment, the rat race and start to live and express our divine potential 😊

  47. Wherever we do for Him is always divine Zina πŸ’–πŸ™
    And He is never ever in rush 😊

    Thank you so much

  48. This is a lovely collaborative piece. Well done!

    β€œIt is time my friend that we break the shackles of the past, and fly away in the heavens vast!”

    Can you further explain the idea of this line?
    πŸ˜ŠπŸ’“

  49. Amen! I love this and how you mention the β€˜toxicity.’ I am running to do something, but it is God’s work I am trying to fulfill.πŸ™

  50. I will share. Your words are in the spirit of the broken dreamspell that is now giving humanity the opportunity to heal mind and body and make their own way. Thanks!

  51. LoveLOVElove!! Standout line for me: β€œDreams manufactured by someone else’s imagination”. So sad 😞

  52. Absolutely, you’re welcome, appreciate you Ashok. It was a wonderful experience to get to know you more too. πŸ”·οΈπŸ™πŸ»

  53. Thank you so much for leading this collaboration Amber, my first 😊

    It was a pleasure working with you and knowing you a little more πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—
