GOD

Problems force us to look up to GOD and depend on HIM instead of depending on our own self. There are times when we realize how powerless we are to help ourselves and it is then that we put everything into the hands of GOD and understand that HE is the only one who can save us from every crisis that comes forth us.

THE FEMININE POWER

 

It is the time of Navratras again, the most divine and blissful nine days where the whole atmosphere is filled with piousness and devotion. It is also the time to understand the immense power of the femineity, the power of the Maa, in her many forms.g

During Navratras, people religiously read the holy book, the Durga Stuti which in its thirteen chapters explains the advent of Maa Durga and how she kills all the asuras in order to protect the Devas. The book beautifully explains that how the extremely fearful and troubled Indra, Brahma and many more devas could not handle the atrocities put upon them by the asuras and thus had to plead for the appearance of Maa, the only one, who could destroy the extremely powerful breed of rakshasas.

When Maa comes with her various forms, she kills the dangerous asuras with utmost ease and ends their barbarity towards the devas and helps them to re-occupy their respective abodes. Reading this holy book repeatedly gives a great feeling of how a feminine power which is otherwise considered gentle and docile fights the horrifying asuras fearlessly to protect the devas.

This is about the eternal and the most powerful Divine Maa, but if we see in real life too, the so called effeminate women is the actual rescuer of the family. She with all her gentleness manages all the day to day issues of the entire family ,their emotions, their well being ,the education of her kids and all this, along with her own professional , physical & psychological issues. She is expected to be a perfect multi-tasker.

Every man, whether he is a son, a husband or a lover needs the support of a woman at different stages of his life;without which he is incomplete. Thus she has to be credited and respected for all that she does for everyone and for the society at large .But sadly ,in today’s world;considering the kind of atrocities she is facing, she is immensely ill treated.

But one should never forget that like Maa Durga, every women behind her soft appearance has the powers, which if required, can destroy anybody or anything. She can be extremely caring but if her dignity and respect is at stake then she can be awfully cruel and thus should be never be underestimated and her contributions should always be acknowledged.

LIFE…..

 

What is life, just a bunch of lies.

Lies which are a part of our childhood and adolescence,                                                            which everyone around us gives us.                                                                                                  The world of Barbie’s, toy trains and bedtime stories; depicting a life full of roses.

The youth is another bunch of even bigger illusions.                                                                    The unreal thoughts, feelings and inconsequential concerns.

In reality, the truth is only revealed when half the life is sealed.                                              It is then when we understand the world around us; the people, the situations and the circumstances.

And they are the ones that teach us the real lessons of life and make us truly wise .

But till then, it is too late in life.

LIFE JUST PASSES OFF!

 

With each passing day, life just passes off.

Minute by minute,

Hour by hour,

Day by day ,

Month by month and

Year by year,life just passes off.

We never realize it every day.

But  one day when we run through the past, we realize that how much we have lost.

Both the people and  moments ;all become memories .

And we also think ,what have we gained ?

The moment brings in emotions and hollowness of the realization that we have lost the most of it and the less is left.

During the journey we never realize that how quickly the time is lost,with no control of what will come next.

MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICES IN LIFE!

 

It was a beautiful morning. The sky was at its best, in its various achromatic shades. The clouds were all swelled; ready to pour all they had in store. In short, everything looked perfect like an artist’s painting.

Not wanting to miss our morning walk, we readily dressed up and went ahead with our routine, before the expected downpour. The weather was so beautiful that I felt the wind caressing and kissing me, whenever I came across its path. The whole experience was simply divine. In all I had a great morning and came back refreshed.

As I sat to relax, trying to get back the lost breath, my husband asked me to call up a neighbor regarding a pending issue and I did as directed. One minute into the conversation, the lady said something extremely annoying and destroyed all the positivity that I had gathered since morning. The conversation made me furious, filling my entire body with abysmal anger. I was disturbed till the depth of my heart. I could feel the negativity disturbing the soul within, so seconds later, decided to let go the needless anger. I deliberated that I could in no way fill my conscience with negative thoughts so instantly tried to ward off the conversation from my mind.

I decided that like many others it was the last time I was talking to the lady; I could in no way let her put me into the uncalled for distress.

Instances and people; good as well as bad, will come to you each day but it is entirely your choice whether you want to pick up those that excite your spirit or the ones that disturb it. God never interferes in our choices, HE just fulfills our wishes, so if we wish to brew negativity in our mind and body than HE will let us do it, without hindering our choice. But if we choose to be high-spirited and always remain in a positive state of mind than HE will help us do that and fill our heart with goodness. The positivity will excite our soul, it will start directing us to wondrous things and let us be in the aura of goodness.

Hence, we should only respond to situations that fill our soul with positivity and excite it and ignore negative situations that cloud our rational thinking and are troublesome for both the body and the soul and thus make the right choices in life.

THE MORNING GLORY

 

EVERY MORNING WHEN I RISE,                                                                                                      GRATITUDE IS THE FIRST FEELING THAT ARRIVES.

 THE FEELING OF BEEN BLESSED WITH ONE MORE DAY IN LIFE,                                             ANOTHER DAY TO SEE THE MORNING LIGHT.

THE GLOWING SUN, THE JOYFUL SKY AND THE CHEERFUL TREES.                                                                                                                                                      

THE CHIRPY BIRDS ENJOYING EVERY BIT OF THE PLEASANTNESS THE MORNING BRINGS.

THE PURE WIND HAPPILY BLOWING, CARESSING AND LOVING.

AND EACH PARTICLE DEPICTING HIS DIVINE GLORY .

 EMPTY YOURSELF FROM THE TRIVIAL THOUGHTS  AND FILL THIS PURITY IN THE BODY AND THE HEART  .

START YOUR DAY AFRESH…CAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHETHER YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER ONE OR NOT.

WHY DO WE SUFFER IN LIFE!

I have often heard people complaining and discussing that only good people suffer in life; that a person has helped so many people in his/her early life but is suffering in the old age; that God is unfair as bad people always enjoy, whereas good people face abundant problems.

Introspecting on the subject, I contemplated that there are two aspects to this dialogue-

The first-How can we decide whether a person is good or bad? We may be good in our own eyes or in the eyes of the world, but that makes no difference, because we have to be good only in the eyes of God. It is HE who decides whether we are good or bad, whether the acts we indulge in or had indulged in this life or in the past were pure & genuine and were done with the right intention.

Many of us may be oblivious to the knowledge that God resides in our heart and is a witness to all our acts; good or bad, so it is of great importance that whatever we do in our life, we should have the farsightedness of its repercussions. Hence, we may be good on the face value and for the outer world but the truth is that only God can measure the quantum of our goodness.

The second-If the person is genuinely good than God surely appreciates the acts the person has done and duly rewards for the conduct when the right time comes.

It may happen that the person in spite of been an ideal human being still suffers; the reason for this is the past karmas. But an eternal truth is, that although the suffering is there, but the ideal conduct of the person surely reduces its degree. God takes care of such a person in all situations, reducing the effect of the agony because of his/her good conduct in the present life.

The famous idiom, `We reap what we sow’ holds a great relevance in real life. Thus, whatever we do in life it surely bears fruits; in this life or in next.

So, never blame God for anything. HE is always there for us, HE will never let us be in trouble and will always guide us and protect us if we call for HIS blessings. We suffer because of our own misdeeds but if we choose the right path the hardship surely reduces.
