Hello people! How’s everyone? Maze mein? :D
After having two different flavors of ice-cream (yum!) ,
one still chilling in the freezer (my throat went sore, and it didn’t
permit more :’( ) , I am feeling super energized, and am here to extend this
energy to you all. Yes, I am again up with some ‘gyan’ post, like that
“All-Smiles” one. :D
Okay, now, constantly being stirred by a single thought since last 4-5 days, I was forced to think how easily we blame God for every other mishap in our life. Okay, that’s an old chestnut but I believe you agree that the fact that we humans prefer to disturb God the most in every sour moment of our life, even in the case of a little scratch on the knee. Trust me Mr. Victim, that scratch is because you tripped on the damaged road, which is an eternal gift by some government authority who, by no means, are even a resemblance to God! Spare him! And when it’s party time because your darling son finally qualified to be an I.A.S., the same God stands last in the gratitude list , as it’s the highest need of the hour to text and telephone every other person on the contact list, and stuff them with the details on how well the effort has paid off! Not even that plumber who came to fix the tap of the son’s washroom, last year, is spared. After all, if he hadn’t done the deed, the son would have had to cut off few minutes of his study time to walk up to another washroom, nahi? :P
Anyway, from all this overplay, what I actually mean is, we should have some mercy on the divine. He never signed a deal to stay aligned with each step of ours. Going by the old belief, god’s a supreme power whose sole aim is to be the guiding force in his children’s life. The one who believe in him, believe that they’ll be punished if they deviate their path. And it’s the fear that holds them firm. But that doesn’t mean that we’ll drag him to the culprit zone every time we face a blow. Why not just thank him for saving us from the just next bad stage where we could have been standing? Writing all this, I admit I too have been one of such persons, having a one-sided quarrel with the idols in my home, whenever I experienced a setback, may it be the poor performance in exams or a betrayal in friendship. And I regret that, from heart. Some time back, a satisfactory conversation with me, did make me realize that all those failures were the results of my own imperfection. I scored less, because I concentrated less. I face betrayal, because I leave myself vulnerable. And it were the never expected successes constantly making way into my life account, that pulled me to the reality. We always have the opportunity, it’s just that we don’t try hard enough to realize what we deserve.
Another tendency we hold is to cry for what couldn’t be ours. Again I had been the preacher of this notion too, always fascinated by a better life. But, does any of us knows the end of this ‘better life’? I never realized till a few days back that how blessed I am to have everyone close to my life, still around me, laughing and living with me (*touchwood*), while even some of the purest souls have to go through some grievous loss. Human loss is something I fear the most :-I.
You all might be acquaint with the phrase which is something like this: “In order to make larger in life, we often forget to enjoy the little things”. This simple line has such an impactful message, and I don’t feel the need to elaborate it. All I’ll say is that once in a while we must thank the almighty for these little happiness.To me, these tiny bits make the best memories. :)…like having three ice-creams a day! ;)
Why run after the ‘best till-date’ technology, when what people are going to remember us for, is our content smile, and the cheerful air about us! So, try to side kick the little notches that come your way and celebrate your life, for LIFE is what you make it! :)
“It’s better to live life accepting what we have, rather than wasting time mourning over what we don’t”.
With this I put an end to this wisdom session of mine. Though I guess I messed up the gist but still hope you had a nice time reading it (Please please, say YES!).
P.S.: While writing the parting note, I had already started dreaming of the wonderful comments I am going to read, so be a good girl/boy, ok? :P
P.S.(i): The P.S. was just fun intended. Please pen down your take. :)
