|| Choose your PATH ||

cover pic cyp We all set certain targets in our life. We want to achieve these targets, reach the destination and prove ourselves. These targets may be social, professional or personal. With the specified destination in place our next challenge comes to deciding its path. All of us have different parameters to choose this path. We choose: – Actual Path – Easy Path – Fast path

ACTUAL PATH: The path of honesty, truth, hard work and challenges. It is the most difficult of all but at the same time it’s the Best.

EASY PATH: Pulling behind / cutting the roots of others so that benchmark falls down.

FAST PATH: Taking shortcuts. Instead of building your own ladder, you dump down someone already walking and climb over him instead of a ladder. If you reach up too high, too soon, just remember your foundation stays unstable. Only actual path gives a firm foundation. Easy/fast paths do not. People following these fall down easily as the foundation collapses.

THE PATH OF TRUTH, THE PATH OF HONESTY,
THE PATH OF HARD WORK, THE PATH OF DETERMINATION,
IT’S ALWAYS DIFFICULT
BUT, ALSO STABLE.

THE PATH OF BETRAYAL, THE PATH OF CHEATING,
THE PATH OF CLEVERNESS, THE PATH OF WRONG DOING,
IT’S EASY AND FAST,
BUT, NEVER STABLE.

IT’S UPTO YOU, TO CHOOSE,

TO CHOOSE IF YOU WANT TO RISE AND RETAIN THE HEIGHT,
OR RISE AND COLLAPSE DOWN.
TO CHOOSE IF YOU WANT TO GIVE SOME TIME FOR STABILITY,
OR KEEP IT FAST AND UNSTABLE.
TO CHOOSE BETWEEN A FIRM AND STRONG FOUNDATION,
OR A TEMPERORY, WEAK AND FALSE FOUNDATION.

IT’S ALL UPTO YOU,

TO DESIGN YOUR FUTURE,
AND DECIDE YOUR DESINATION.
TO CHOOSE, WHAT YOU WANT?
AND WHICH PATH TO FOLLOW?

STOP THINKING…START LIVING…

title

Life is a complex maze. Some keep moving in its tangles without bothering why & where it is taking us. While some of us try to put an extra effort using our logic & reasoning searching for WHY & HOW and keep trying to understand it.

We land up getting some answers but we never end up getting all the answers. The more we dig, more complex & confusing it becomes. And when we are unable to reach the answers, we keep thinking, stressing ourselves, getting worried & anxious.

Just go for a flash back of your own life. How much of it was planned by you? What all worries & tensions were reasonable? In fact, of all the worries how many situations actually took you in trouble? How many of your problems you feel were in your control?

More than 80% of our lives are controlled by destiny. There is no point thinking, planning & worrying much. Live carelessly, & let the things move the way they are moving.

Imagine free flowing water in river. It flows at its own pace & as per the path defined by river bed. The moment we insert some obstruction, pebbles in it, there will be swirls & fluctuations. But, water will still flow in its own direction. These temporary obstructions only create disturbance in flow but does not change its path or destination.

Same goes with our lives. It will move a predefined path & reach a predefined destination. If we let it flow like water without bothering much on why, where, how & when then the journey becomes smooth. But, if we try to over analyze things & interfere by imposing our logical thinking at every step we end up in creating disturbance at every step. But, we can never succeed in changing the path or destination.

DO NOT THINK MUCH,
DO NOT ANALYSE MUCH,
DO NOT PLAN MUCH,
AND DO NOT EXPECT MUCH…

JUST KEEP MOVING,
ENJOYING EVERY STEP,
FACING EVERY CHALLENGE,
ACCEPTING EVERY CHANGE…

FOR LIFE IS A JOURNEY,
IN WHICH THE PATH,
AND THE DESTINATIONS,
ARE ALREADY FIXED…

BE CARELESS,
BE FREE,
STOP THINKING,
START LIVING…!!

Helpless – Powerless – Clueless – Directionless ?

A1

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.” Continue reading

Understanding “MISUNDERSTANDINGS”

cover pic

MISUNDERSTANDING – Root cause of several conflicts, disputes, disassociations & break-ups.

It is human tendency to judge people based on their actions. We observe, judge & make some opinions about everyone surrounding us. In the process we sometimes end up with a wrong interpretation also. We shall remember that neither we nor our observations are always perfect. At times what we see is not what is behind. There may be different circumstances and reasons for a person to behave in a particular manner. What matters are the intentions.

The only way to tackle such misunderstandings is to talk, to openly explain your confusions & ask for clarifications. But, some people become so egoistic, so self obsessed, so angry or so confident that they prefer ending up the things instead of moving forward & resolving.

Before framing any such opinion, one shall listen to instincts, one shall evaluate the past records, one shall always give a second thought, one shall always analyze how trustworthy & faithful the other person was? No one can change in a day.

It’s not the person or intentions that tend to change with time its only “circumstances”.

So, if a misunderstanding is cropping in between, move forward and evaluate the circumstances in between. Focus on “what” has changed and not on “who” has changed. It’s better to cut the roots of such instances before they become too firm and you end up building a big boundary line on its foundation. Few relationships are too precious; don’t just let them fade away for mere misunderstanding.

But, again there is a word of caution. There are two faces of every coin. When I say we can be wrong at times, we can be wrong at any phase. It may also happen that the one who we trust was never worth trusting. It may happen that when something objectionable & alarming happened we ignored it thinking it’s just a misunderstanding. It may also happen that when you approached for clarifications you were misguided. There are people with dual faces, they look sweet and they attack you from back. One needs to be alert with such people. In fact, sometimes such experiences make us see everyone around us with doubt & suspicion.

With all this said, I would like to conclude that-

Listen to your mind..

Listen to your heart..

Listen to your instincts,

Watch the actions..

Frame the observations..

Do the analysis,

Try to find out..

If it’s the person..

Or the circumstances,

If it’s a correct interpretation..

Or misunderstanding,

Track the past records..

But, be alert if such instances repeat,

Don’t just ignore..

Don’t over-react,

Be balanced..

Be Calm..

Be patient,

And just move forward,

With what pleases you the most.

Joy Of Giving…..!!!!

gift

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” 
― Mother Teresa

Gifts are not objects…,
Gifts are feelings…!!
It can be a rose petal or a gold coin…,,
What counts are the feelings behind…!!
Gifts don’t come with a price tag…,
They are priceless…!!
They are given not for formalities…,
But for memories..!!
Gifts are presents…,
To make your present memorable..!…
With GOD’s grace you have everything..,
But if someone’s wishes comes along with those…,
Don’t you think its worth keeping…!!
Its worth cherishing…!!
Hope it now sounds convincing…,,
That a gift is worth receiving…,!!
And you can return the favour…,
Not by questioning…??
But by understanding…,,
That what it means…??
Gifts are for joys..:)
And not for Why’s.??
Yes, its give and take..,.
A smile on your face..!!
A respect for the gift…
Is what you can give..!!
So, cheer up…& gear up…
Its time to celebrate…!!
Wish life gives you more and more reasons 2 celebrate…,
Wish life gives us more and more reasons 2 give gifts..!!
Its how the happiness spreads…
And the depressions shifts…!!
May GOD shower His blessings…,
On someone as special as you..!!
May your life be filled with happiness…,
As its meant for people like you…!!
“Give cheerfully and freely. It is the energy behind the giving that matters so do not give grudgingly. The law of cause and effect guarantees that you shall receive plenty for what you give.

—–David Cameron Gikandi

So….friends….keep giving GIFTS….:)

THE JOY OF GIVING IS BETTER THAN THE JOY OF RECEIVING
