I know I am not the only one, still we are not enough.
I have a wish, a request, probably a long-sighted dream. It saddens me to see our people filled with so much hate for each other. We can’t be born with this!
Babies are a gift from heaven and heaven is a no place for hate or anything dark. None of us are born with hate in their hearts or hate for their fellow beings. It is something that is drilled into us.
Hate is not the first feeling we encounter, whereas love comes naturally and is there from the very beginning.
I am not talking about some crazy love or even romantic kind, I am talking about the deep, pure one. The kind of love that makes you put others first, the kind that compels you to be respective and caring towards everyone despite of their status, color, religion, age or background.
We should not hold others’ differences against them. We should try not to hold any grudges against anyone. No one is perfect; after all we are humans, we are not supposed to be.
Things are tend to go wrong from time to time, life is not a smooth ride. But at least we can try to have a stable mind. If one of us is having a break down or something, at least the other one can try to be on the good end. It all depends on what you value more, tearing or keeping together, spreading love or planting hate, becoming a better fellow being or just making it all about yourself.
This is a simple plea; simple but demanding, that’s why I am requesting you to at least try. With all your heart ‘n’ soul give it a try to:
Be kind to others without expecting anything in return.
Be polite with everyone irrespective of their ages, color, rank, religion or background.
Replace the love of power with the power of love.
Put a stop to violence, sexism and racism.
Be humans nor Gods.
Be respectable towards others irrespective of sex, color, rank, religion or background.
Fight the evil in yourself and never let it win.
Spread as much love as you can and as long as you can.
The list of good deeds can go on and on but just writing about is not it. Make these deeds go on and on by touching hearts ‘n’ soul of those around you.
Try to offer your understanding, love, respect, friendliness and peace to the world, even when you don’t get much in return, keep trying. One day, your good heart will touch another, and from there another and so on. The chain has to start from somewhere…
I want just 5 minutes of your life. Ready? Let’s start.
Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let your body drop into the relaxing mode. Now call to your stronger self. Its there, right inside you. We all have one. But sometimes, we let our fear stand taller than our strength.
Life is like a journey, with a variety of hurdles and mishaps, with unexpected turns and twists. No one had it easy. You might think so, but, you cannot tell the whole story by just seeing the outer picture. You know: people are more what they hide and less what they show.
So, close your eyes and look inside your heart. You will figure out the answers, once you find yourself.
Life is not easy, but you are not weak either. You can get through this. Just believe in yourself and put your best efforts into work. You will get there.
Sometimes you feel a little down, not your usual self. Like the gloominess has engulfed you and drained you out of all the energy. Sometimes you feel…nothing. Sometimes you just shut down. That’s when you actually wake up!
When this feeling of numbness comes over you, you drop the acting, you allow your deep and sometimes dark feelings to overwhelm you. Even though you still keep your walls way up high, and your lips sealed, still you allow your mind to wander to places you haven’t visited in a while.
At that time, you enter your ‘self’, the one that you keep hidden or show only to few. All that is also a part of you, all that is also ‘you’.
You can’t just bag a part of you and lock it up forever, it tends to come to the surface from time to time. Don’t try to fight it, I know I have tried, it only depresses you more. Take a break, take a time alone or with your loved ones, however you feel at ease. Or like me, spend some time with a pen and a page. Let it out. Ease yourself. Try to connect with your ‘deep self’, so you can go back to your ‘normal self’ with a peace of mind.
