The Spinning Coin

spin a coin and make every decision.
heads I do,
and tails I do not,
hold the coin and let destiny decide
but did the coin really stop spinning ?
a trillion, trillion coins spinning
while I ponder
has the decision already made itself ?
while my mind pondered

    The coin is always spinning.. as earth is spinning on its axis and earth going round and round the sun. but u know since u are also sitting on same planet so the relative motion is zero.

    spin & whirl, toss & twirl
    head or tail, of what avail?
    choice & destiny, head & tail
    spin in agony, until frail
    head & tail, wander & ponder
    choice and destiny, spin in unity
    in the illusion of choice, your destiny
    in its acceptance, a free choice
    head or tail, choice or destiny
    spinning in unity, a dance into eternity

    Dear Shekharji, it just happens when one is confused between two options.When both options are comparable and none of them is either much weighted.
    Choosing between two options varies with the person’s attitudes and perceptions about that particular object.
    But what I do is just think, think, think many times followed by feel, feel and feel many times. What I think and feel more close to me and satisfies me more, I go for that option, very simple.

    I read somewhere that when you spin a coin, the out come does not matter because in the split second when the coin is in the air your heart knows what its wishing for and that is what yu actually want 🙂

    It is in the time the coin spins that a decision is being made – in anticipation of the coin dropping!

    I love reading your blog and I have never commented on it, so I thought I should quit enjoying it selfishly without ever sharing my opinion on it.
    I am not introspective enough to understand most of your writing, only it’s interesting to know what goes on in the highly creative minds of people like yourself.

    spinning a coin would have only two sides. But in life there are sometimes more than two options to pick from…….

    Everything is fixed. So it is better to live as according to the need of the moment. We all have to learn the art of the surfing in the ocian of the life. We have to react according to wind and wave and make a balnce between it.
    Coin is not needed

  17. manish says:

    Spining a coin shows confusion of the mind. It shows that thier are two options or many. If we do all our actions according to our heart or being some people may leave us. But those who knows and feels our heart beat be with us always and those are real.
