How many of you have come across above words in your life?
How many of you have encountered these feelings?
What to do when we have such feeling?
How to tackle these & try to move forward?
How to accept the hard truth that nothing is in our hands?
There are so many times when we ourselves or our near & dear ones get engulfed in such a situation where there is no way out. We get that urge of thinking it like a nightmare, thinking that it’s not true; it’s just some imagination / illusion. We keep consoling our mind by a simple explanation that everything in this world happens by GOD’s will & we shall accept it. But, at the same time our heart keeps feeling that it’s not true.
It becomes such a helpless situation, you don’t find words to console the affected person, you can see/ feel the pain but you are unable to cure it. It is really a difficult challenge when you want to help but you can’t. All the strength, trust, belief & faith shatters away & you feel weak & powerless. You keep thinking if you could rewind the whole situation & make everything settle down smoothly, but you can’t. You are clueless on how to tackle the situation & you feel like you have lost your capability of sensing, judging, deciding & moving ahead. You feel like running away….running away from your problems, your worries, your fears, but the fact is:
“YOU CAN NEVER RUN AWAY FROM YOURSELF.”
Your mind keeps telling you to give a positive direction to your thinking but you are unable to decide which way to go? You feel directionless & aimless. It seems as if you have no control on anything & you can’t do anything except “WAIT AND WATCH”.
With this philosophy also mind dwells in dilemma, I cannot be too optimistic as it hurts a lot when things don’t turn out in an expected positive way. I cannot be too pessimistic as it holds me back, making me stagnant & unable to move. None of us can move forward for negative results. I cannot be neutral. I am human, I have feelings, I have attachments, I have aspirations, I can’t live today thinking that there may or may not be a tomorrow. Life can change in fraction of second and it’s a fact which we all know but we are never ready to accept it.
This is such a complex puzzle & the solution for this varies with circumstances around us. Many times, we just don’t know how to respond & react,
“WE ARE UNABLE TO THINK BUT WE ARE ALWAYS ABLE TO FEEL.”
This makes it even more worse because we know we need to sort this out some way but we never know which way?
O GOD, WE KNOW IT’S YOU WHO CAN HELP,
IT’S YOU WHO CAN GIVE US POWER,
IT’S YOU WHO CAN GIVE US CLUE,
IT’S YOU WHO CAN GIVE US DIRECTION.
O GOD, I FEEL LOST,
I FEEL LONELY,
I FEEL AFRAID,
AND IT’S THE TIME I NEED YOU THE MOST,
O GOD, WHERE ARE YOU?
COME, HOLD MY HAND,
SHOW ME THE PATH,
AND HELP ME MOVE.
