A Legacy richer than Gold.

Here is an abstract of the story of a man who gave his daughter the finest riches the world can ever have. Words spoken through actions. They might be what we hear everyday, see everyday, BUT fail to LISTEN, fail to OBSERVE.

………………………..

All she had to do was ask, and he would GIVE. He would leave no stone unturned, sweat through the days and plan through the night, So that his Princess would learn to live wisely and beautifully.

She would often wonder, “What kind of Man is her father?” “What kind of Man gifts his dream to his daughter?”

A man who’s Heart is the purest gold, that burns in love for her.

A man with such zeal & determination to have everything from nothing.

A man who wins her heart over & over again & yet makes her wonder – Will she ever find another one- so same?

So that someday she can pass on this legacy she received,so unknowingly ::::

“”And He said ,

“In time you get what you deserve. All you have to do is NEVER EVER LOSE HOPE.

SMILE despite all that you face.

Love the people who love you. Do good where there is good to be done.

Dream big. Aim high. Try to reach the sky. Someday you will Fly.

It doesn’t matter if you start with NOTHING, all you need is FAITH & HOPE that grows stronger in time & never falters. If you have this, then you have what it takes to Win LIFE.

Yes, BELIEVE. YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DREAMS YOUR REALITY.

Pay no attention to what the world says. Feel no Distress when you fall.

If you fall, all you have to do is RISE. SMILE. AND WALK. If walking ain’t helping you, RUN….. because YOU CAN…. If only you want it feverishly… Than WORK HARDER till exhaustion gives you a smile that strengthens your spirit.

CHERISH every small- big gift you have. Start counting your treasures, and you will realise how rich indeed you are.

FIGHT against all odds, to get not what you desire but what you most deserve.

BE PATIENT, WISE & CALM during storms. DO NOT RUSH.

When you are distracted, DIVERT YOUR ATTENTION to what gives you strength. FOCUS on your goal.

Whenever you are knocked down all over again, REMEMBER

YOU HAVE IT IN YOU- TO RISE- EACH TIME- YOU ARE SLAMMED DOWN.

THROUGH HUMILIATION – comes STRENGTH.

THROUGH CRITICISM – you realise YOUR WORTH.

THROUGH HARD-WORK – you step nearer to your DREAM.

THROUGH LOVE – you attain PEACE & HAPPINESS.

THROUGH GOODNESS –you spread smiles & sleep with a BEAUTIFUL CONSCIENCE.

THROUGH STORMS – you are more POLISHED & SHARPENED.

A DIAMOND is nothing but a POLISHED STONE.

YOU CAN SHINE. BELIEVE. LET GO. MOVE forward with a ZEAL to CONQUER your dreams.

and above all

NEVER FORGET TO LIVE.”  ””

………………………………..

Life is not a journey to merely conquer your dreams, but it is so much more than just that. It is living moments that never come back. It is enjoying and laughing along with those who mean the world to you. YOU have LIFE, in you , around you. Respect it. Learn to live. 

Life is so very beautiful .

Racing towards my Dream!

Running my own race

Oh! I cannot sleep!

Cause when my Dream hits my face

It hurts very deep.

Bad I think, and bad I get!

So why not good?

No question of regrets.

 

I’ll walk tall, I’ll run through it all,

It’s my race,

No one will for me face.

 

I’m stronger each time I fall,

I’m a fighter, cause when am down I still crawl.

 

I’ll reach the end, claim my land,

hold my dream, with a victorious scream.

 

There’s no need to cling,

Just let go of all nasty things,

Cause now it’s “Me and my dream!”

Right through me like a light beam-

Happiness will glow and Laughter will flow,

Only when I’ll never stop running after

My desperate dream!

Am at a phase in life, where sacrifices alone will lead me to my dream.

All of us will certainly have one such desperate dream or aim.

Something that makes or gives your life a whole new direction , a meaningful purpose .

We often have enough excuses and situations that make us question this dream, whether running after this dream will be worth it? or whether its best if we try finding a different purpose for our life? Some of us , may even get a different purpose, maybe even better than what you gave up.

But there will be a time , when you will still have this question hanging around the space you breathe in :

“How would my life be, IF ONLY HAD I RUN AFTER MY DREAM?”

Some of us may have regrets, while some might be the lucky ones feeling what they have is better than what they let go.

“The dream that creates  a feeling of regret in you after you let go of it, is the dream YOU SHOULD RUN AFTER!”

“It is NEVER TOO LATE TO RUN, to race, to submit to your dreams.”

REMEMBER this always:

“I am here, on this earth,  to Live ONE RACE- MY OWN RACE. No one else can run it for me. Neither can I run their race for them. If I’m still breathing- then my life still has an unfulfilled purpose, the race is still on, it needs a direction, the path towards the dream that will satisfy the hunger of my spirit. And I alone can make this happen.”

Life is a gamble, you gotta make tough choices.

The more you understand, the interesting it gets.

The more you dig, deeper you go.

The more you search, even more you find.

The faster you run your own race, victory will definitely greet your face.

Be sure.

YOU CAN, IF YOU BELIEVE .

YOU ARE, WHAT YOU BELIEVE.

GO RUN, CHASE AND LIVE YOUR DREAMS. JUST KEEP GOING.

The most passionate bond is the one  between YOU & YOUR DREAM.

Lesson 3 – The Conflict

Sometimes you have to face bitterness in life…. Everything can’t be sweet and sugary always.

“Too much sugar – Bad for health.”

Too much happiness will not make you understand the deeper meaning of life.

To understand the real meaning of one we need to learn the meaning of the opposite.

Your life can’t always have shades of red, pink , green and yellow.. you’ll have to deal with shades of black, blue, grey and brown as well.

Remember all shades together make the rainbow beautiful. How would the rainbow look with only the shades of red? No green, no yellow, no blue, no violet, no indigo? …. Weirdly not thrilling right?

Just like a rainbow gives you a smile… Smile through all the colors of your life.

You can cry over the blues…………. Hide through the blacks….. Run through the reds………….. Smile through the pinks…… Think wonderful all through the greens..

You have the color palette in your hand. Paint your life canvas the way you love it best.. Have loads of fun.. but also make your life an eventful adventure..

Make sure you get to ‘the pot of golden coins‘ at the end of your rainbow.. Cause we all do have a pot of coins awaiting us. These coins are your acts that can make you richer than the finest gold.

Act Wisely.

There is nothing wrong in being bitter to those who can’t cope with your sweetness. But why give the poison back to the poison maker? Do you really think he won’t know how to deal with such a deadly poison? Don’t make yourself the poison for others!

Why not instead you stop the over-sweetness and be the one person you are, that can drive away the poison makers– with the flare of indifference your behavior depicts and detain around you those who’s demeanor shouts loyalty?

Life is a colorful rainbow.. Drink in its beauty all that it showers over you.

Create a robustness about you that can hurtle the bitterness the world shoves your way, beneath the very ground you place your feet on.

Never bemoan of being yourself. Be proud. Stand Strong. Hit the storms headfirst. Live your life the way you feel right. But make sure the right ain’t the wrong.

Take no offense when you are being judged for free, remember you didn’t pay , neither did you ask. So don’t waste time over hypocrites and their cheap judgement, they can’t afford you.

And also don’t forget that Just Judges are the most expensive ones. And the One Above all is GOD.

Do what is righteous. Even when the right feels wrong and the wrong feels right.

What happened???

From a baby nestled in her mother’s arms
To a toddler crawling on the floor…
A toothy grin… or a wail so loud..
Thundering the neighbors’ doors.
What happened?

Like a child running all around..
Yelping, screaming or pouting …
Laughing, giggling or dancing..
Singing, dreaming and grinning..
What happened?

Crushing secretly.. sighing..
Admiring the temptations..
Tasting the fatal “Don’ts”
Oh the Teenage dramatic moans!
What happened?

Basking in the sun of youthfulness..
Growing over and above ..
Learning , changing, accepting..
Hurting, smiling, Still sailing..
What happened?

Aging in time… growing by mind..
Older we be… solving the mysteries..
Crying, grumbling, loosing faith..
Or rather- rising, smiling with courage!
What happened?

Memories rush.. everything’s hushed..
Echoing deep.. something leaps..
Agonizing puzzles.. silent storms..
Victorious glory.. happy songs..
What happened?

Don’t we all come across such moments… when we wonder:
“What the hell happened?”     “How did I reach this far?”                    “How did I change?”    “How did life change?”
Life is a nasty road… You gotta go up… sometimes even fall down..Rise again, crumble again. Smile or cry or wail or say “WHY?”
All good things , do come to an end. Not always there’s a happy ending. Silent storms help you become stronger.

Whatever happens/happened, whether you like/liked it or not – doesn’t matter, it has/had to happen, not only because it is/was meant to be but also because you are/were meant to grow over your weaknesses, find your courage, learn to rebel and learn to appreciate not just life but yourself.

Trace your life backward and you’ll see the way everything has changed.

Take time to ponder on “What all happened?”
Its nice to read your own life; smile over the times you acted stupid , impulsive, foolish or stubborn; be proud over the decisions you took, the resolutions you stood by, the many wishes you made, the dreams  that you made sure become your reality; the times you let your wounds heal; the times you learnt a lesson -maybe a hardway; the times you realised what made you special; the times you felt ten times your age; the times you smiled even when you crumbled within; the times you were simply happy…..
In all the agonising moments, we fail to remember the many many happy moments we had. Count such moments. Count the number of times you smile a day. Count the many blessings you have. Count the many breaths you have taken so far and well, aren’t you still breathing? Count the many times you were saved from looming storms. Count the many times you almost gave up, but something/ someone didn’t let you give in. COUNT.
Once you count. You’ll know what happened!

Be happy. Its life. You get what you deserve. Nothing more. Nothing Less. Even if its a frightening storm, know it will pass, know you can handle it. Enjoy every phase of life. These are the seasons that once slipped never come back. And once lived are enough. The little you have is much more than many can have.

Small moments you live make life easier, cause big moments are a rare catch. Everyone plays this game called life, all get fair chances, fair lifelines, fair choices and fair breaks.

Play it well…. whilst you always remember to enjoy.

Perfection- Not mine to claim!

What is it with us trying to see perfection in everything & anything? We expect our neighbor to be flawless… don’t we? Like do this ..do that .. and never do anything wrong to us? Oh please! Are we all perfect? How can we expect perfection from others when we can’t claim it for ourselves? Do you really think you are perfect? That you can do things flawlessly? Is that so? Ok than tell me what’s perfect about you? What work have you flawlessly done? Have you been fair to all people you meet? Do you think you have no flaws at all? Haven’t you committed mistakes?

The spec in our vision while pointing the flaws of others is actually the flaw in us. Mathew 7:3 ” Why do you see the chip in your brother’s eye, and not notice the plank in your own eye?”

There are many moments when we fail to see what is wrong with us , but we very much love to see the flaws in the others- true right?

Sometimes criticism comes handy. ‘Take it’ from people who assess you. ‘See’ if it is true or not. ‘Discard’ what doesn’t belong to you. ‘Treat’ what does-‘ patiently’. ‘Change’ yourself if it can make you something better -accordingly.

Mind you:- you gotta learn to deal with criticism the best way. If you are too sensitive than you’re not the best user of it, but you’ll simply end up abusing yourself further. So strive to be stronger and insensitive to things you’re better off -without sparing a second thought to.

We can all strive for perfection. But perfection is really not our’s claim. There is a flaw in everything. It could be so minute that our normal vision doesn’t allow us to see it. The only Perfection is GOD- the most Divine presence.

I know this could be ironical to most of our thoughts. You could possibly argue saying what about the perfect paintings and Sculptures and monuments and stuff? Well, all I’ll say is. Things can be near-to-perfect. We end up tagging them perfect anyway. Even I do. Like tagging a blissful day as the most perfect ever. It’s not wrong. Cause in our human vision, since we havn’t seen the true perfection, anything alil more than the best amazing thing happened to us- becomes perfection for us. It’s normal. But in true sense- Perfection is something more than we can understand, see or imagine. 39b1f2415024daf1759b1359d6c84677

Some flaws we have are something that actually define us. Its wise not to even try to get rid of such. Because -they distinguish us from the others. They form a part of our unique identity. Loving our imperfections, and striving to be perfect, knowing we cannot be truly perfect, but we can of course be Near-to-perfect—Is how we can be better than simply imperfect.

We can try to be like God. But we cannot be God.

Life is a cluster of imperfect and near perfect moments and things. Weave it all soundly. And you might as well have a fine design before you. Enjoy weaving.

Life is a Bumpy bus ride

I’m sure we all have had a bus ride, have had a window seat, or stood among the crowd in the narrow pass it provides. What all happens in there ? Sometimes we have to sit beside people perhaps we would never like to deal with. Sometimes we meet people who have a great impact on us within a few moments. Sometimes we look out the window and gaze at the nature sprinting past us. When the bus stops we feel stuck too and wait for it to move on and drop us to our destination. Sometimes we meet rude people as well as sweet ones.

When we were small we would think that it isn’t the bus moving forward but the nature outside that is running on and we are stationery.

Now you’ll will be wondering why am I bringing up the topic of a bus.  Right?

Well that’s simply because I relate LIFE to a bus ride.

A bus ride is a journey from where we are to where we wish to go or rather be. Isn’t life the same?

Life is a bumpy bus ride. It’s never a smooth one (if we remember our roads ). There are so many ups and downs. So many potholes jerking us from our seats or making us jump. Not always there’s a promise of a comfy seat. Not always will there be a companion you can think of as a friendly stranger. There are bound to be moments when you meet the wrong or people you’d not rather share a seat with.

There are those whom you can help out- how? giving your seat or carrying their luggage or standing up for them when you think you should. Don’t we do this in life? Helping out those who mean something to us? try to share their laughter and sorrows? help them carry their burdens? advice them? fight ? Sometimes even give up something we love or something that gives us comfort for those who we can do good to? Give away a smile? Or a daring stare to those with ruthless eyes?

There are spectators everywhere whether a bus ride or life. People are bound to judge you or criticize whether in their minds or on your face. Just remember that they like you are having a bumpy bus ride too, so keep calm and hold up your shield against such attacks and just stay aloof and do your work. Waste no energy or time on something so reckless and unworthy. If you know your worth and what you are, am sure no sly comments or thoughts should be enough to make lose your cool.

“Do what you Love. Love what you do.”

What you see sprinting past you become memories you leave behind. You may forget most of the journey except for somethings that will be unforgettable.

MEMORIES CAN NEVER BE FORGOTTEN whether GOOD or BAD.  All you have to learn is how to deal with them, as and when you face flashbacks. The best way is to accept and chase them back and not run away from.

One last thing, YOU ARE NEVER STUCK IN LIFE. No matter how much you feel you are. Confused maybe. But never stuck. Just like the bus keeps moving on stops here and there and finally drops you off at your destination. Same-way in life, you perhaps take some halts here and there, collect yourself, learn something, let go of somethings, amuse yourself over the drama and the role you play and so on. In all this, whether you’re happy or sad- you keep walking on- Accept it or not. But you do.

Life is a Journey that stops only when You reach your Destination.

The more breaks you take or the many times you space out thinking you’re stuck or confused, the more farther will your destination be.

So if you wish to make it shorter and pleasant. Stop spacing out. Get a grip. Learn fast. Accept without denial. Run (forward) if you have to. Don’t walk backwards, it’s pointless unless you wish to start all over again on the same route from square one and delay all the more crossing the finish line. Walking back is accepting defeat at the hands of failure. Don’t be a loser. Hold yourself and step forward . Accept failure as a lesson.

Every failure helps you master the art to succeed. Deal with your problems without lamenting and complaining. Prioritize your wants, dreams and wishes and goals. Plan your journey.

Just like the stops the bus takes, make the stops of your life short. Let go of the people who would be better out your life. Let them leave when it’s time. Welcome the  new faces. Enjoy the journey.

Live life with a fever of Never backing down -of not clinging to your comfort zones.

Swing in the adventures. Jump high. Fall back. Climb up. Take risks. But only risks you can afford. Don’t Blow up. Make it worth. But in it all “Listen to your heart .” Do not make decisions to please but take decisions to Live better.

Rekindle the flame of goodness in you. Even a small spark is magical. You’ll live without regrets. You will live in harmony with the positive vibes. A wonderful key to an optimistic life.

When you reach your destination, if you made the journey worth it – You will carry this with you till your last. But if you didn’t- then it adds up to the meaningless things you pile up.

Your LIFE DEFINES YOU- so make sure the definition is good enough.

ONLY YOU CAN DO IT . So Dear Master of your own-Life, Enjoy the bumpy Ride.

Lesson 2 – Acknowledge The Presence Within

My feet kept running from door to door

Tears gushing down evermore

and I still couldn’t answer the question haunting me , “Where do I go? “

My mind kept shouting ‘RUN … ESCAPE’

Would it feel better drowning in some lake?

and then I heard her scream ” STOP RUNNING PLEASE, AT LEAST FOR MY SAKE.”

Who do you think screamed?  there wasn’t anyone around, then?

Sometimes when you walk around and see people sing alone or talk to them-self , Do you find that weird? Do you think you never do that? Like your lost in your own world and your mom asks you to go get something from the grocery shop, and then you keep grumbling all way down there or you entertain yourself with a little speech??

Tsssk Tssssk .. now don’t say you never do that! There are definitely endless moments when you talk to yourself and sometimes you don’t even realize this.

SPEAK TO YOURSELF WHENEVER YOU WISH.

Its not called madness. It simply is – giving yourself a priority, ACKNOWLEDGING YOUR VERY PRESENCE.

e26e5a3fce932486645fecd051811383

081e09a20fd86c9871d89d6bd0cd3133TELL YOURSELF WHAT YOU FEEL! ASK YOURSELF WHAT YOU WANT?  indulge in a self talk. UNDERSTAND AND LISTEN TO YOUR INNER SPIRIT – YOUR SOUL. It has a voice- DO NOT SUPPRESS IT terming it as an act of madness.

When you die, you are no longer called by your name, they call you “BODY”-  ever been at a funeral? heard people talk? – “Yes they brought the body home……..”

028c207024cb76bd87a0cd7d6295e6e6

UNDERSTAND THIS FACT.

NURTURE YOUR SOUL instead of bashing around loving your mortal being.

YOUR SOUL IS YOUR POWERHOUSE. Open yourself and welcome its presence , and you will never feel alone.

6635339d02943c43e2878bcbb7b8e923

We are too busy dealing with life that we never realize that it is the soul that is actually in the battlefield.

DO NOT SUCCUMB TO your WEAKNESSES  and  NEVER MAKE YOUR SPIRIT-  YOUR WEAKNESS.

Feed it with love, courage and understanding  and you will never fear the wounds to your mortal being.

YOU HAVE IT IN YOU TO SMILE THROUGH THE DARKEST STORMS.

1a9deecd721d87644922259ea68540b3

YOU HAVE IT IN YOU TO LIVE WITHOUT GIVING UP .

75c4a14c2a424ddac3bccafdc01dabf2

DEFEAT AND FAILURE SHOULD NEVER BE ENOUGH TO BREAK YOUR SPIRIT.

“THRIVE ON THIS SPIRIT AND LET IT THRIVE IN YOU.”

3c3922f5db3ff7fb41662084af68702d

Lest in any occasion of falling, should you be afraid, remind yourself that :

“MY  SPIRIT  WILL  NEVER  BREAK even after FALLING  A  MILLION  TIMES, IT  WILL  ONLY  GROW  STRONGER!  CAUSE  MY  SPIRIT IS  NOT  OF  FEAR  BUT  OF  LIGHT!”

833b0a6cf56907296fa6987224c74663

Words. Some false. Some harshly true. – Let it cast a magical spell. Over me and you..!!
