Be strong!

Be strong! The sign of life is strength and growth. The sign of death is weakness. Whatever is weak, avoid! It is death...

If you want to have life, you have to die every moment for it. Life and death are only different expressions of the same thing looked at from different standpoints; they are the falling and the rising of the same wave, and the two form one whole.

-Swami Vivekananda

How can one bad experience completely shake the belief system in a person? Right from the childhood and adolescence we believe many rosy things about love. We feel proud to be in love! An attitude that makes us do anything and everything for a person whom we love.

One fine day one of them leaves the other and just goes off...either gets married to or gets in relationship with somebody else.






What should the person left behind do?
Should one loose faith in love and say love is all crap and that there is no love in this world? Don’t you think the belief system one has since many years has taken a beating?

Doesn’t this show how weak a person is?

One strong wave came and hit the person who is sailing in the boat or say a storm prevailing violently in the ocean destroyed one ship. Will one stop sailing and choose to loose the scenic beauty the ocean and the sun setting in the ocean can give us. Am sure given an opportunity none of wants to loose that sight!

It is the same with not only love but also with other belief system a person has like trust, honesty, etc...

I repeat the question "How can one bad experience completely shake the belief system in a person?”

For that matter "Love" is the same. It never alters itself. It’s only we that add something (may be a good or bad experience) to it and make it divine or satanic!

I only feel that "The sign of life is strength and growth". If one looses wealth...one will try making more money and make sure invests it properly and be sure that the same mistakes doesn’t happen. I know money and love are two different things. But the strategy is the same I guess!

Every person has enough love in him/her. Love can never become less or more. But only the experiences which a person goes through makes a person hide or express love.

Letter to myself!

Dear Self.

I just want to tell you how much I value you. Without you, I would be nowhere. It is through you that I know God. It is through you that I know others. It is through you that I know my world. It is through you that I know myself.

When all else leave me, who will be there to guide me? When all else lose faith in me, who else will believe? When all others are against me, who will be on myside?

Thank you for being me. During my very short stay on this planet, let's be bestfriends.

Life



I remember the last time I took life seriously was in my 12th standard. My ambition was to become a doctor and specialize in heart surgery. I really wanted to get a distinction and top the class so that I get a medical seat. On the contrary it so happened that due to the excess tension and peer pressure, I got Low BP and I got dismal score in my exams.

I just couldn't accept this and made my life miserable by thinking about this all the time. But this has taught me one thing. Not to take life very seriously.

My life has become easier now because I got out of my own way; I started to take fewer things so seriously and remember that really very few things in life are in my control. The rest of it sort of happens, and my job is to recognize opportunities and navigate through them.

Happy navigation.!
