I stare at the key; key to the caged me, which yearns to explore the blue yonder where it is meant to be Magnificent it is; a constant reminder of my triviality, passes down a look of pity with its nuances of artistry An easily forgivable treachery.
But oh the key lies there, far away from my reach and I’ll have to break free For how can something which is not a part of me; which is foreign to me have the power to stop me?
The cage now a battlefield tests the capacity of a soul fueled with perseverance and quest for knowledge Alas! it could not hold in my shooting aspirations anymore.
And thus, I broke free of the coldness in the confinement A warm flurry of wind beneath my wings to revive the curiosity to revive those dreams…
Off I reached straight for the sky Yes! this is what freedom feels like. When I can explore; When I can experience; When I can interact to discover myself and correct my course I am free…
This picture reflects such a strong message. It calms the ever-chattering mind and gives so much peace and solace; pacifies the soul and fills it with sobriety. The trees swaying with the wind convey that sometimes we must let go of things which disturb our inner peace. At certain times, we must refrain from being a rebel and just go with the flow. We will definitely alleviate; time heals the pain of grief. We just need to synchronize with it and let ourselves loose; not bonding with the complexity.
Another message is that, people who are great and noble-minded do not show off their worth or rank. They are humble and can easily bend, for good and betterment. Just like those tall trees who bow without shame, while the short ones are as stiff as pole, desperately trying to make themselves more conspicuous. People who are for-bearing and forgiving do not have to grasp attention, their deeds and righteousness is evident.
The raindrop that feels cool on your face has gone through a lot of heat and pressure. It has survived the storms of distress and suppression, but still remains pure and clear. It is only because of the heat, that the raindrop has discovered new realms and colors of the universe.
These storms are a complimentary and unwanted item in every one’s plate of life. It’s how we embrace them and change the odds into evens, while still maintaining our original form.
“We will appreciate the brightness only when we face the darkness”
Water is the elixir of life. It represents the soul of an ideal human, beautifully and artfully. We already know the characteristics and properties of water but have we ever looked out for the deeper meaning?
~Water dissolves most of the substances in it. It is a universal solvent.
One should embrace all the positivity and let all the negativity be the residue. We should accept people the way they are. Molding people according to our ways destroy their own essence and beauty.
~Pure water is transparent and crystal clear.
This tells us to have pure and magnanimous heart as well as soul. Having a hidden face or personality can have deleterious effects and break the trust of loved ones.
~Water is unconfined and flows fluently
One must learn to let go off things that are disturbing and make one restless. Keep the life smooth and easy. Forgetting the past and moving on helps a lot to make you live in the present.
~Stagnant water attracts diseases
Halted situations or circumstances may have adverse consequences as well as an unhealthy environment.
~Water takes the shape of it’s container
One cannot always rule their idea or opinion. We must learn to adjust to the situation sometimes, if it’s not in our favor.
~Water is tasteless, colorless, odorless and shapeless
Simplicity is always appreciated as it reduces complications in life.
We should be like water. Having a philanthropic personality that soothes everybody, makes the life of a human more meaningful and fruitful.
~~~~~~”Empty your mind and be formless like water”~~~~~~
Life is like a Boat. If you load a boat with a bulk of amenities then it will drown. Keep your life simple. If you load it with great expectations and unachievable desires then it will lead to failure and disappointment.
“Just be like me and you will have your life filled with glee. Always keep moving towards your destination. Don’t look back when life turns a sharp corner. Just like blossoms and fish sail along with me, there would be people who will always be at your side, whatever the circumstances might be. Don’t loose hope when you come across an obstacle, embrace it, make your way and keep flowing.”
Often in life we are not able to make spontaneous decisions. We become unsure of the results and take excess time to decide upon a matter. (I am facing one nowadays and it is really a very difficult decision for me!). We hesitate to even express our ideas and opinions ,in the fear of choosing a wrong path.
Hesitation isn’t healthy. It reduces exposure to world and we often miss out precious moments of our life because of it.
Why do we hesitate?
The most common reason for long decision making and hesitation is that we may do something wrong.
Or to protect ourselves from making blunders in front of many people (but believe me that isn’t correct)
To be apple of others eye in just one attempt/decision.
Fear- of rejection,of triggering someone’s anger, of inviting embarrassment, etc
There are some decisions which should be taken without any hesitation:
To choose between an apple and a silky chocolate bar. Now that’s extremely easy!
Topic on which you want to write your blog upon.
Whether you will clean your room up or not. (i know…i won’t)
Sign up for a thing which you are good at but still stuck because you don’t have faith in yourself and your talent.
And the most important one comes the last. If you know you are right in helping some desperate person but feel shy or embarrassed ,then don’t hesitate for a second. Smile is extremely precious. Save it.
How to overcome hesitation?
Listen to your heart and not mind when doubt and curiosity surrounds and you feel difficult to escape.
Do what is right. If you think you can make someone happy then don’t take too long.
Set up a time limit for your decision if you think the options aren’t surrendering.
Wait. Think. Act
Know what your fears are and try to defeat them.
Do new and unique things which will give you more exposure to outer world. This will boost your confidence and enhance your ability to overcome hurdles.
And lastly, be social so that you are empowered as well as trained to accept various types of responses from different people. Don’t be overconfident and learn to get reviews as well as suggestions.
Do not hesitate. The world isn’t cruel as you think it is.
