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…
“…..today is a gift. That is why, it is called the present.”
You probably have heard or read this quote, a million times. But it only speaks to you, when you are on cloud 9. It might even work, if you are somewhere around it. But what to go with, when you feel like you have nothing to go with.
From my understanding, I think our moods or situations cannot stop today from being a gift. It might not be the gift, one is hoping for, or wants at that time, but you will come around to it.
When you get a gift, you don’t throw it at the giver’s face just because you don’t like it. Instead you smile and say thank you. You put aside that gift for later use. That’s what you do. You do not lash out, just because someone didn’t get you what you wanted. That’s how it is with today and life.
In life, we have to face some things, go through experiences, that we wish, we never had to. We question them, even lash out at our creator, for putting us through all that. But do you know, He also gets us out of it. All we have to do is never give up.
We can take a break, cry our eyes out, but we should never quit. The direction might not be what we have planned. But then again, can we ever be sure, that where we are heading, is where we want to be.
