Lack of introspection cause worrying mind

There lived an old rich man, he once bought a tiny little bird to get rid of his loneliness. He placed that bird in the cage made of gold and diamonds embellishing its bars. He kept the cage beside a window sill so the bird would not suffer suffocation.
As the bird grew, its desires built along. Whole day, bird looked outside of the window and wished that it could fly too like other birds. Bird tried to escape out of cage many times which the old man noticed. He realized that bird had no space to fly so he ordered another gold cage of the room size. Now bird could fly inside it. Many days went like this, after then an urge for freedom disturbed the tiny creature. Bird got sick. When old man saw that bird was not recovering and he too was near his death bed, he pulled the lever of cage and allowed bird to fly. The creature flew away. After few days, it returned to the same window and tried to look inside the house where its old cage was kept. Bird wished that it could return to the cage, as there was no struggle to survive, no striving required to get food and shelter.
There was a conflict in bird’s mind. On one hand, freedom was awaiting it which required struggle and on the other, a prison full of food and shelter. There were many thoughts occupying birds little mind lacking INTROSPECTION.
What truly required was the introspection of its own mind, as it stimulates the power to take decisions.
Introspection helps us to find what we really in need of, what we truly desire, and once the decision taken then it results in peace of mind, regardless of what kind of hardships that decision brings.

The tales of Sheikh Chilly

‘The tales of Sheikh chilly’ have been creating humor in the life of every Asian citizen, especially every Pakistani child.

Sheikh chilly is famous for his imagination. All time he engrossed in his thoughts. He used to dream even during day and this was the reason behind his unemployment. Once he was sitting at the corner of road, a man came and asked him to carry an oil pot for him to the market place. He also told sheikh that he would give him five rupees for the service. Sheikh agreed and went on. During all his way, he thought about his future. He thought that he would buy eggs with those five rupees. Then chicks would come out of eggs. In few days they would turn into hens and cocks and hens would lay more eggs and within few months he would become an owner of poultry farm. He would marry a beautiful girl. He determined himself that he would not become spend thrift and when his children ask him for icecream then he would refuse. Being engrossed in his thoughts , sheikh shook his head and the oil pot fell and oil spilled. Merchant got angry.

No doubt, its funny but in modern days where everybody is talking about inventions and revolutions, out of many theories there is a theory about visualization and law of attraction.

Author of THE SECRET, Rhonda byrne says, ‘Visualization is the process of creating pictures in your mind of yourself enjoying what you want. When you visualize, you generate powerful thoughts and feelings of having it now. The law of attraction then returns that reality to you, juat as you saw it in your mind. Visualize! See it and feel it. This is where action begins. Visualize! Rehearse your future.’

Bob proctor says,’ when a wealthy person reaches their goal, it is exactly what they expected. Precisely because, through visualization, they have already been there.’

The famous scientist Albert Einstein said,’Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.’

Neither I am defending the character of Sheikh Chilly nor I am very sure about the effects of above quotes. Only thing which I noticed is our behaviour towards different people. There is no one in our society to tell those people, ‘ yes, you can do that.’ There is no one to pat on their shoulders and say, ‘ believe in yourself.’

Dilemma of our society is that we consider these types as fools. Though we have many examples in history as well like Thomas Edison. He too was different.

My question is why we create difficulties for such innocent souls who have tendency to do something extra ordinary.

I recently watched a video clip of Nick Vujicic. He is a man without limbs. He too suffered a lot during his childhood not because he was disabled but the people made him realized that he was.

Let we all determine ourselves to promote positivity and motivation in society and especially to those who are really in need of.

Perhaps one word of kindness was the only thing for poor Sheikh Chilly which could change his life. Unfortunately, he became a joke. Nobody ever think about his business mind. Nobody values his imagination.

Life

Today one of media group member asked about life..

I dont know that in what kind of muse I was in that moment, I just replied to the post and here are the words that I typed..

‘ Life is like an aesthetic garden with beautiful flowers surrounded by thorns, Life is like a daffodil floating in stagnant water, Life is exortic, tremendous, adventurous and sweet, Life is like an ocean giving life to different species, Life is like a river with quality of vastness in its nature which paves its way towards ocean and lost its identity, Life is like a space which despite being dark embellished with numerous galaxies, Life is like a pearl in the shell… one has to dive into depthness to findout that pearl, Life is not we are living… life is something living in us…’

I wrote it and my own writing compels me to ponder over…

Such a pleasant feeling we get by reading such stuff…

I wish that the same pleasantness we feel in our practical lives…

Unfortunately, we pluck the petals of half bloomed flowers and then complain about uglyness of our garden…

We look above at stars at night and wish to become one, we forget that stars shine in darkness then why wont we?

We like the flow of rivers, the sound of rivers and its beauty but we forget that the beauty lies in flowing….

Unfortunately, we dislike flowing, we forget that by flowing we can pave our way out but we lack it…

We look at the beautiful gardens and wish to hv our life become like one, we forget that for aesthetic greenery there is always one thing required that is soil…

Unfortunately, we dont like to become a good soil instead we like to become a tree, flower and grass… we forget that tree can be cut, flowers can be pluck and grass is the one which remains beneath our shoes…. its the soil which can regrow the garden whenever there comes spring..

Be a river, be a soil, be a star, be everything except being lifeless..

Ladder too needs a thing to rest upon.

Phenomena of life starts with a rule of development. Whether we talk about life thousand years ago or present day life, the phenomena remains the same. The rule that every livingthing grow step by step… even if we ponder over the sea… there is process comprises of many steps which cause rain. The plant, it grows out of tiny seed. We humans, grow little by little in our mother’s womb..

Every process takes time…every process comprise of easy and tough tasks… but here, there is a universal fact that every upcoming task or step is difficult than the previous one.

The life is like a ladder… every step is taking us to one more higher place but at every proceeding step, there is a possibility to lose our balance.

Ladder of life should be rested with firm surface. If we do it then there are less chances to fall…firm sufaces of our lives are values, ettiquettes, loyalty, honesty, respectfulness and above all humbleness.

Let your life’s ladder rest upon some smooth surface… have a happy life ahead….

Difference between struggle and strive

Struggle! What is it? When to do it? Why to do it? These are the questions that come in mind when we hear this word.

I have seen many people struggling in their life. Some of them succeeded, some failed though never accepted their failure and some of them are still struggling.

Now here the question arises, we heard that struggle leads to success then why some people fail despite struggling?

Perhaps the people who succeeded were consciously or unconciously were on the right path of their lives and the failures would have been walking on the wrong path. What is the wrong path then? To understand it one has to understand the meaning of right path.

Right path is always the one which we are created for. The work in which our passion and profession amalgamates. The duty which never make us tired. The task in which we indulge ourselves in the way that we find ourselves spaced out while doing it. When the area of our passion and profession becomes same, we call it straight path.. this is the point where our struggles make us winner.

What about those who are unaware of their work area? The answer is ‘strive’.

Strive! Striving is different from struggling. Strive to know what are you created for. Strive to find oneself. Dig in ourselves to know your destination. Only thing difficult and exciting at the same time in this world is to find oneself. The most fabulous adventure of our life is to explore oneself. Strive to take out what is hidden in you. The day you find yourself is the biggest victory.

The lesson

A girl was searching for the love of life, 

love, which could take her out of lowlife,

days passed, and the years too,

nobody came to rescue,

disappoint submerged her,

she fell into a well of blur,

In the depth of dump, she found a shell,

Inside shell there was a light which dwelt,

The shell broke,she found sparkling crystal, 

Object worked as transmittel,

It glistened the light of blessing and hope,

Girl understood that to become valuable, fear has to be cope.

The little blooming flower

Once upon a time, far away in fairy meadows, there was a beautiful garden with lots of trees and fresh, lush green grass.

Among tall trees and short lovely plants, there was a tiny baby plant, growing aesthetically with each successive day.

One day, the gardener died..another person came to take care of it.

He was not that responsible like that of former one. He skipped watering many times.

Fortunes of garden went upside down.

Leaves got pale and grass became a bush. Doom and gloom prevailed…

‘Why? Its my time to bloom…why this all happen to me..I have seen so many dreams, i want to become a beautiful plant with eye- catching flowers.’ The young plant sighed.

There was a closed bud on one of its branch..’its better not to born than being murdered.’

A tall tree heard this conversation. ‘Dont give up, everybody born with its own rights, no one on the earth has power to make us born nor on the land has the power to kill us. Wait with patience and high spirit.’

There came a rain then, which nourished each and every leaf and bud.

The fortune of garden got bright again. Bud then bloom into a flower. All of them sang a song.

Stand at your place,

Stand firmly,

A day will come,

When we succeed emphatically.
