Desires: One should have? Or Not?

Hey fellas, BWS here and today, we’re going to dive into our thoughts at the ‘spiritual level’…… So, buckle up, take all the oxygen you want because THIS is going to be a DEEP dive.

So, today, I and my parents were watching a video of my father’s friend which came on my father’s WhatsApp….. Apparently, he’s also a spiritualist and during the lockdown….. He resumed his habit of posting such videos… In the video we were watching, he said that desire is a foe of man and one shouldn’t have any….. Then, to justify what he just said…. He started narrating an incredibly boring story of some farmer who lived 100s of years ago….. I don’t remember it but it’s moral was to not have any desires…..

If we take a look in India’s teachings also… It is said that one shouldn’t have any desires and be happy in what they have… I don’t completely agree on this teaching… According to me…. Life is a journey which should be enjoyed and if something makes you happy… There is nothing wrong in achieving it… I know the real moral of the topic is, “One should be happy with what they have”, but, according to me, the way in which the teaching is described isn’t fully right… Now, I’m not enforcing these thoughts on anyone… These are just my views on the topic… If we just ask ourselves, “Why do we live?”, It is a question with almost no answer other than one… To achieve one thing or other…What I think is that desires are the fuel which give us the motivation to live… One should be happy with what they have… But that doesn’t mean that one shouldn’t have desires… If we think… Achieving life’s purpose is also a kind of desire. So, I don’t think that having desires is wrong.

Well, these are my viewpoints on the topic… I’m saying again… I’m not enforcing these ideas… Just telling my views.

Well, this is all for now, this is BWS, signing out!!!

Hot n Fresh post!!! Comin’ Up!!!!

So…. Hey fellas… BookWormShamit here… I don’t know why I put the title as “Hot n Fresh post…. Comin’ Up!!!!” You know… It kinda implies that it’s an announcement of a post coming up in a while…. Anyways(I really gotta stop saying ‘anyways’ after every line).. I noticed that almost every Book-Logger(Short form for Book blogger… Let me know if you like it or it’s cringy) on WordPress is reviewing one book…. Keeper of The Lost Cities(KOTLC). It was like every Book-Logger had this craze of reviewing this series and about me? I never heard of this series in my entire life until…. Some of my ‘other’ book-loving friends told me about it and couldn’t stop ranting about what a masterpiece the series is….. For all those who don’t know… I’m a huge fan of Thrillers and don’t give these Fantasy books much attention…. But…. This one did catch my attention…. So, I decided to research upon it…. I’ve researched about the author till now and am going to research on the plot tomorrow…. Bye-Bye for now!!!!!!

So, this is BookWormShamit of the next day and I do find the plot intersting….. A human girl who has to leave her home behind and enter a new world!!! Sounds interesting…. Now… I’ll read some reviews on the series on Google…. Can’t trust my friends on this one…. Will meet you guys tomorrow… Byee!!

Helllloooo again!!!! This is BookWormShamit of the next day!!! (Again) and after reading reviews and shielding myself from many many many spoilers… I’ve finally decided to buy and read them!!!(if my father agrees to buy them for me) You guys would be wondering… What if I didn’t find them interesting and didn’t decide to read them… Well… You guys won’t be reading this post right now if that happened…. It’s actually ironical how I decided to read and review a book AFTER reading other reviews!!! So…. I looked up these books on Amazon… And boy are they EXPENSIVE… If my father buys them…. These are going to be the most EXPENSIVE books I’m going to read…. I wonder if my father will buy them…. But hey… Let’s be honest… If my father refused… You won’t be reading this post right now…. So, here’s the plan…. I’ll beg to my father to buy me the books… If he refuses…. I’m going to emotionally blackmail him a bit…. That should work… You guys would be thinking that I’m going to blackmail my father for a book?! So, the answer is…. Yes and I’ll never feel guilty for this… So the joke’s on you!!(If you’re against me for this and even of you are…. No offense) .

Yayy!!!!!! BTW, this is BookWormShamit from the next day… And my father agreed to buy me the set of the first five books in the series!!!! They’ll arrive till tomorrow and I AM EXCITED!!!!

Finally!!!!!This is BWS(BookWormShamit in a short form… I was getting sick of writing the full name again and again… Let me know if you like this name) from the next day… And the books have just arrived!!!!!! Here’s the pic!!!

Ignore the background

Soooo….. This is BWS from the next day…. I just finished reading the first book…. It’s currently 2:30A.M so…. I don’t have much energy left right now….. Well…. I’ll just review the first book….. The book is about and Elf named Sophie Foster who is a telepath and had lived with humans for her entire life…. But, it all changes when she meets another elf named Fitz Vacker…. She is forced to leave her whole family and all the people she knows and live in a new world…. A world where she belonged…. I know the review is very short but…. If I tell any more, then I’ll just spoil the whole novel for you….. Read it yourself…. There are many twists and turns in the novel and is an emotional rollercoaster.

Hellloooo again!!! This is BWS from the next day and I’m just here for the outro…. Sorry BWS from 7th day…. I tried a new way of reviewing a book….. Let me know if you like this way better…. And do check out the site of my ex-classmate Priyamvada….. She just hit 15 followers and is a GREAT blogger… Do check her out.

Well…. This is all for now…. I’ll post soon reviewing the second book… Sadly… The next four reviews will be in the normal format as they came in the set and there is no point in repeating the same story again…. But hey!!!! You guys know me I’ll come out with something new(hopefully I do… It took 2 days to think this)… This is all for now… This is BWS…. Signing out!

Broken WP

So… Some of you must be wondering why I haven’t posted for a while….. Well… I did post blogs but…. They just vanished from my site without any trace and I don’t know why….. It seems like WP is broken…. So, I’m gonna repost one of my blogs for now…. So…. Enjoy!!

If I were to ask you what courage is? Then most of you would say that having courage is performing dangerous activities without feeling scared but what if I then ask you what is it being a daredevil? You would notice that the definition of these two terms in your minds is more or less same…. But, this is not true… Having courage is facing your biggest fears in your life head-on…. The reason I’m writing this blog is because I just realized that I don’t actually have courage…. You see, my parents just changed my school because they weren’t satisfied with the level of study taught in my old school so, they simply changed it… They simply changed the school I was studying in for the last NINE YEARS for “my BETTERMENT”…. Sorry, I still am a little angry at them for doing so…. I know they only want my good but….. Anyways, back to the topic…. I realized I didn’t have any courage when I wasn’t able to tell my classmates about it… So far, only 2 people know that I’m switching schools…. I didn’t have the courage to tell them this…. They all were so excited for going to the 9th grade that I wasn’t able to gather the courage to tell them this and I don’t know if I will be able to gather the courage to tell them…..

Anyways, this is all for now, this is BookWormShamit, signing out.
