It hurts!

57641092_dcbcb40432

Words hurt! Most of the times the words from your loved ones hurt! They call you names, and try to hurt you as much as possible. There is no point to be proved. Nothing. Just that they want to empty their trash cans on you. It hurts! Being someone’s dumping yard is not a pleasant feeling and you shouldn’t be proud of for being that. It lynches your happy thoughts for that person. It puts a big hole in your heart and all the love that you have stored for that person gushes out from there. Its hard for you to put together that shattered heart and then you simply start loosing interest in the things you loved to do. As if, the love for those things was somehow attached to that person. Or simply you start hating the word love because it brought the tears in your eyes.

Now love seems the very reason for your sorrow and you have forgotten the fact that it was not love but that person’s anger and mental garbage that brought all that sorrow. Mind no more remains rational. Well…it was never rational. Because you loved someone. Love is not rational and it does not weigh anything. There are only emotions and feelings and experiences in love. What will you weigh? Yes, these things start to feel heavy and they bring you down. But there is no weighing here. You can’t be rational with these things. Though you very much want to be rational after that hurtful event. The bleeding is still going on and all you want to do is stop it somehow. It feels as if you will die of that virtual mental bleeding.

And now the journey of realizing your own worth starts. You take your first step towards valuing yourself. But most of the times this journey is very brief. You like walk on this path for couple of days. Because she comes back and hugs you. Says sorry and you are done! Love takes over or may be the lust takes over or just emotional overwhelming takes over your heart and you forget about everything.

Some wise people say it is always best to hold on to love and good experiences than to grudge. Of course! But we also forget the other advice that says, learn from your past experiences and brace yourself for future, act in present! We just behave as if nothing happened and easily move on. But one things is always there. No matter how happy we become after that, there’s always a slight fear somewhere deep down in our mind that may be… that hurtful event will surface someday. We smile bigger or laugh even louder to cover up that fear whenever we have that thought.

At this moment we play ourselves into love again. We just try to brush off that thought. But it keeps haunting us. It typically surfaces whenever we are laughing and dancing with her or him. It never leaves our back. Some events leave a deep scar. Sometimes they are actions…sometimes words!

The Power of PURPOSE

Your-purpose-in-life-is-to-find-your-purpose-and-give-your-whole-heart-and-soul-to-it.

The need to feel positive is even higher today. The times are tough and more challenging. But even when we have thought about the troubles, challenge & many other things, all the at matters here is, how your mind responds to the situations around. Because, in the same depressed market somebody is making great Profits and while others are making losses. The only thing that matters here is, what drives us! The driving force is the most important factor in deciding whether you will rise of perish. Ig fear is driving you then for sure after some time you will perish. And if your driving force is PASSION, if a strong PURPOSE is driving you then no matter how hard the times get you will emerge victorious!!

Let me be very clear here. It is absolutely not about winning or losing, or even profits or losses. It is all about what drives you. What matters to you most? Are you here for short term gains? If you are, then mind well, you will be shattered or will give up once those gains disappear. Let me share a secret for long lasting sense of achievement with you. The sense of PURPOSE. When you have realised the purpose of your being, then even if you lose today, tomorrow or day after or may be some day you will be victorious, provided your purpose is noble and strong enough to be lived every moment for.

Money, profits, fame etc. everything else is secondary or a by-product of a purposeful living. You will find yourself motivated by the journey itself. When the realisation happens, the destinations or mere goals cease to matter. You rise to a higher level of consciousness and that gives a meaning to your life. You start living each moment fully, because you know what you are living for and why. Every event, challenge, achievement, milestone now motivates you to move on and keep aiming for more. You no longer are meant to achieve the physical attainments. You want to go beyond the car, the house, the world trip or even the billion dollars. Whatever is your purpose, you just want to live it to the fullest. Then that living to the fullest may mean climbing the Mount Everest, Cleaning the streets, founding an organisation for some cause, or simply serving people at gas stations. It can be anything. But it will more meaningful. The power of purpose is far greater than any amount of wealth.

The power of purpose ignites action, reassures faith, strengthens beliefs and builds nations. I believe the greatest salvation any human being can get is vy discovering the purpose of his/her being. The journey begins with efforts to realise to find the purpose of one’s existence. The day you realise the purpose, you truly start living your life. After that there must be the purest and most genuine attempt to live the purpose every moment. This brings the sense of peace to any man. An eternal bliss that you are always running after should always be sought within.

A purposeless human being is like a car that does not move. It can be used for all sorts of things even after it is standing still but it ceases to exist as a car because it can not run, the very purpose of any car! Hence, if you are seeking for peace, happiness, prosperity or any kind of salvation… I suggest lets find out the purpose of our existence. The journey to this realisation is itself so satisfying that you will always cherish the moments you had while searching for your purpose. Happy Journey!!

INVICTUS

INVICTUS

 

invictus_by_marechal_ecto-d5ow2b2

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

-William Ernest Henley
