There's an ethereal process of brainwashing going on. Hidden from everyone, somewhere deep down in our sub-conscious it disperses. Do you know how people are brainwashed ? Repetition of something over and over. Owning things is good. More money is good. More property is good. Power is good. Powerful is good. More commercialism is good. More of anything is good. Politicians are bad. Religion is good. Men Vs Women, Public Vs Private, Poor Vs Rich, the eternal fights. No matter what elders are always right. We repeat it--and have it repeated to us--over and over until nobody bothers to even think otherwise. The average person is so fogged up by all of this, he has no perspective on what's really important anymore. The concept of Morphic Field and Resonance seems to be working effectively in this case.
  ~Ref: Tuesdays with Morrie

"Morphic Field and Resonance is the idea that, through a telepathic effect or sympathetic vibration, an event or act can lead to similar events or acts in the future or an idea conceived in one mind can then arise in another".
I wake up early in the morning 
do chores, as my mum says.
I've made goals,
craving, working hard.
I know where I'd be 
in few more days.

But, there are rules 
I can't bend
bounded within limits
trends, stats, already set.
Flightless birds, so many 
waiting, for generations 

They have the ideas 
tattooed in their minds
Anchored to those..
they run in a loop 
Some are good,
deserve replication, surely
But, some deserve 
termination, yes certainly
Brainwashed robots
we've become.
Impotent to dissec
fiction in reality. 
Don't blame it on 
morphic resonance. 
or on chemical imbalance
Get some grip on your 
personalized self-reality.  


  1. A beautiful expression...and literally I feel the same sometimes...


  2. Word Jyoti. " Get some grip on your personalized self-reality." Pretty much sums it all.

  3. A very good poem .. Do i need to keep repeating this to make sure you know it is a good poem :)

    life has become monotonous


  4. We know this happens with everyone but to be aware of this is the only way out.

  5. Intelligible yet incomprehensible,soft, sublime yet hard,though too concise but pregnant with a vast meaning-you are touching a level of highest kinda creativity -just move on my favorite poetess!

  6. i do agree we have become like this...we just accept pre-chewed thought as we wake everyone up to that...i got no clue...smiles...

  7. nice post
    mujhe hamesha lagta hain ke dimaag ke taar uljahte rahne chahiye kyonki vo jab suljhate h to kai saari pareshaniyo ka hal nikal jaata hai

    1. bilkul sahi farmaya Chirag :)
      thanks for this lovely comment !!

  8. Jyoti,

    True picture as to how most of us keep following the beaten path with no wish to take initiative due to what is drilled into our mind.

    Take care

  9. True reflections of how things stand and need to introspect!

  10. So very true, everyone is brainwashed, it is quite pathetic.

  11. True.....very.well written..
    The Resolute determination and a fearless independence of mind seem to b rocket sciene these days...

  12. It is very hard not to be brainwashed with the constant repetition around us. It takes a strong personality and determination to decide for yourself not to follow the majority if it does not feel right. Your poem has rightly reflected that. I am glad you have brought it up. Good sharing!

  13. Nicely crafted. Meaningful and thoughtful indeed.
    Like the usage of vocab in ur pen as i always say...keep goin:-)

  14. I love this part " Don't blame it on
    morphic resonance.
    or on chemical imbalance.
    Get some grip on your
    personalized self-reality."

    We really should be careful because lots of us are doing things to ourselves that cannot be dissociated from brainwashing.

  15. Yes, our mind is fogged and the opening lines made all this a vicious circle of having more without even realizing what good it is doing to us. I am bad at remembering names but there is this popular book in which the bird breaks the norm and flies much higher than what its species should do. If you can recall, tell me the name. Actually second paragraph reminds me of that book.

    A thought provoking read.

    1. Jonathan Livingston Seagull - I was talking about this book.

    2. I'll check it :)
      thanks Saru !!

  16. I guess a blend of mix and balance will do the trick… it is necessary to listen to others and value their experience at the same time, one cant be blind and follow the crowd..


Write whatever may come to your mind..
I'm here with my fingers on keyboard waiting to reply :)
