A word of prayer

I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30

Time heals everything

Quite intriguing and a much comforting three words! But it’s true, physical or emotional – time heals everything! That makes us very fortunate and there begins the initial process of healing, to ease everything off.

No matter what or who you are,  we are all imperfect and inexperienced, prone to hurt, pangs and pains are common to us. It has many faces and act as a constant never ending chain. We hurt ourselves and others equally. It doesn’t have to be intentional all the time. But, it’s easy to project and make the wound much deeper. If you’re a sensitive person, that could be a disaster and a fodder to foment troubles. But, not yet! The universe and time works hand in hand to rescue us, which is a big relief. Instead of hasty non-sense just be there and enjoy the ride.

As a wonderful carrier, what time does is quite simple. Time simply moves forward constantly chasing new and fresh beginnings. It doesn’t have the concept of looking back or waiting for anything or anyone.

Time plays an art of healing oblivious to our feelings and  situation for our own good . It takes us, engages  us and leaves us in a new realm to ease everything. As time passes, memory fades,  fresh and new things emerges. But still it allows you to cherish the souvenir, to reflect and react and make us better as reasonable human being.

Whether we like it or not, we forget and move forward with time, the greatest healer – God’s wonderful provision!

Five bonus hints for life

IMG_4464-4

Recently received it as a forwarded mail by one of my friends and worth reading it, I believe.

Hidden deep in each line, there is something to warm our hearts and assuage the immense fear of piecing together puzzles within the whole concept of life, with a sense of comfort. 

Often intrigued by life’s ambiguous game that needs our utmost attention on minor details at times, those sheer moments that slipped away in minute ways… read on;

Here’s five bonus hints for life;

We are not put on earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are there always for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you. Theodore Reik

Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, because hate in your heart will consume you too. Will Smith

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, another is busy making mistakes and becoming superior. Bernadette Devlin

Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you; it probably hurts the other too. Unknown

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make most of everything that comes along their way. Unknown

“If” by Rudyard Kipling

Success.To rise higher is our innate desire and dream as humans. But it’s not that easy to reach there as smoothly as we think. Crossing the bridges of numerous challenges to pass the hurdles requires little extra; courage to hold on to true self, trust in our ability, confidence in our convictions, and a positive attitude. These will save us from swaying to others decisions and thus nurturing negative thoughts for the sake of acceptance. A clear picture of where we’re heading to and the guts to stand for what we deem right – when the entire world turns against you – will set you free. As the poem itself concludes, “Yours is the earth and everything that’s in it.”

“If” by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch – and – toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a man, my son!

Words of wisdom

Beyond a wholesome discipline,

be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,

no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,

no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,

whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,

in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world.

Be careful. Strive to be happy.

Embrace doing the best!

In my heart I’m convinced that it’s the best practice that beautifies and strengthens the core values of our lives, a graceful quality to practice as life goes on… Or where would we wind up if we lack a well thought action to align with our decisions, suitably succeed the present and margin to move forward to the future. It defines you who you are and thus able to firmly keep one’s foot solidly on the ground.

Is it to get applause or appreciation from around? Never! Instead we need it to gain the quality and the freedom to pursue a peaceful and successful life. As we go, if we are able to get a deep sense of satisfaction and relief that we played well makes a big difference. A sense of relief that we didn’t waste our time and energy! To stay away from being apathetic and callous to self, an ultimate freedom from fear and failure!

I know it’s not an easy task for anyone. It’s a huge challenge. Any hint of distraction could hinder the steady progress unless we are equipped to face it. I realized that utmost focus and persistence plays a key role to pass through … The sheer shadow of pressure and all the intricate hurdles are not what we think…it’s messy! That’s where we need to build a team, an ultimate teaming with our mentor up above! To ace in everything gracefully!

Raise your glance above to heed His guidance to maneuver the path we’ve chosen. If ever cross such thoughts that you can do things alone without divine direction and approval, alas! It’s utterly folly to entertain. See the mess in this world even if we are at the peak of success and stability!

Yet am compelled to keep doing the best and embrace doing the best. I know its innate in me. After all what’s the point in life if we lose the ground and float in the void! Happy Easter
