QUESTIONING YOURSELF

Untitled1.png

Who are you

really?

You are not a name

or a height, or a weight

or a gender

You are not an age

and you are not where you are from

You are your favorite books

and the songs stuck in your head

You are you thoughts

and what you eat for breakfast

on Saturday mornings

You are thousand things

but everyone chooses

to see million things

you are not

You are not

where you are from

You are

where you are going

and i’d like

to go there

too.

SUCCESS AND MOTIVATION

“If you can’t fly, then run,

If you can’t run, then walk,

If you can’t walk, then crawl,

But whatever you do,

You have to keep moving forward”

                                                                   – Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Not everything deserves your time and attention

An elephant took a bath in a river and was walking on the road. When it neared a bridge, it saw a pig fully soaked in mud coming from the opposite direction. The elephant quickly moved to the one side, allowed the dirty pig to pass and then continue to its onward journey.

The unclean pig later spoke to its friends in arrogance, “See how big i am; even the elephant was afraid of me and moved to one side to let me pass”. On hearing this, some elephant questioned their friend , the reason for its action. Was it out of fear? The elephant smiled and replied, “I could have easily crushed the pig under my leg but i was clean and the pig was very dirty. By crushing him my leg would become dirty and i wanted to avoid it. Hence i moved a side.”

  This story reveals; Realised souls will avoid contact with negativity not out of fear but out of desire to keep away from impurity through they are strong enough to destroy the impurity. 

You need not react to every opinion, every comment or every situation. Kick the drama and keep going ahead. Choose your battle wisely. Not everything deserve your time and attention.

Always pull yourself…

And once the storm is over, you

won’t remember how you made it 

through, how you managed to

survive. You won’t even be sure,

whether the storm is really over.

But once thing is certain. When you

come out of the storm, you won’t

be the same person who walked in.

That’s what this storm’s all about.

Don’t know me…

Nah, you don’t know me

Lightning above and a fire below me

You cannot catch me, cannot hold me

You cannot stop, much less control me

When it rains, it pours

When the floodgates open, brace your shores

That pressure don’t care when it breaks your doors

Say it’s all you can take, better take some more

(Oh)

‘Cause I know  what’s it like to test fate

Had my shoulders pressed with that weight

Stood up strong in spite of that hate

(Oh)

Night gets darkest right before dawn

What don’t kill you makes you more strong

And I been waiting for it so long

The nights go on

Waiting for a light that never comes

I chase the sun

Waiting for a light  that never comes
