Wish everything was labeled with an Expiration Date!!

You always wish you'd never be in the same situation again but sometimes you just land up there. The equation doesn't change just the variables do. I wrote this note more to myself about a year ago and today I feel that when you land up in the same situation your courage fails you. It definitely hurts to be hurt but there comes a moment when pain fails to hurt and it feels good.  This is what I infer from the difficulty I have when talking about the pain. My fingers start to hesitate at the keys even as I write the words here. Today when I was going through this note again it seems it failed to inspire me. It failed to work on me as it did the last time when I wrote this. I'm guessing that even notes or feelings come with an expiry date. But still I didn't feel like trashing this one as it may work for someone else !

I know baby you're scared 
but atleast you dared 
Don't worry ,if you put in at the wrong places 
trust the milleau ov face 
Not every one would disgrace 

Let me show you, it can be easy 
If you just let it be 
Nothing is promised, but I believe if 
If you give it everything, trust 

Trust and someone would really live upto it 
and you'd know whom you could rely every bit 

You know we got a lot 
Not evrybody will stab you with a knife 
I know you've seen a lot of things in your life 
It got you feeling like this can't be right 
But, this is not right 
Don't let the darkness abrogate light 

Put the trust in right places 
and you would see a sea of faces 
If you give it everything,you'd get trust
Trust every soul and not everyone would let you down.

Kill the Ravan within

Today is Dussehra--the day of victory of good over evil; and it signifies the reign of the truth. On this day, let's realise that we are the captains of your ship and that we have to navigate the rough and high seas to end our journey successfully.

Charles Darwin had said: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.“

Most of us have professional identities but no faith in our work. May we find courage to break tradition, and discover a new identity in which we find our uniqueness.

“God cannot help you until you, yourself, first, try your best“, says Swami Kriyananda.

Have no expectation of instant results. Do keep allowance for things to work out. Are you spiritually inclined? However, you need the component of spirituality in your life. Religion changes you for the better. Your life depends on your attitude.

Besides faith and patience, the other divine virtues worth cultivating are: that way you become a genius; to tolerate like a tree; to discriminate between good and bad, real and fake; to judge ­ wherein you do justice to self and others; to face life situations squarely with quiet efficiency; to cooperate and be capable of teamwork; to travel light; to concentrate on essentials overlooking trifles.

Negativity creates barriers and a life framed is bondage.

Never have a one-track mind, have a wide canvas to function in. Try to connect with the Supreme; He is by your side as and when needed.

“Tell the mind to let go of its sad stories, and instead focus on happiness“ (Sugandhi Iyer).

Don't ever collapse under burden, just thrive. Only those who endure and act can gain. Live to the hilt.

Keep in mind Soren Kierkegaard's view: “Life has its own hidden forces which you can only discover by living.“

Do good. Your goodness creates goodwill in people that takes you closer to your deity. And be a winner like Ram whose victory over Ravan we celebrate today.
