Don’t Telecast your Past

One beautiful morning, I along with my two friends, went to our society garden for a walk. It was a beautiful morning with sun smiling above us, birds were singing the morning rhyme, and dank green grasses beneath welcomed us. We could feel the chilly breeze on our face. It was serene and tranquil dawn in which we felt like three butterflies enjoying the essence of flowers.

As we broke into conversation, one of my friend started blaming his luck, his life, his society, his family and his past. He started throwing negative vibrations and soon we could see his outburst.

boomIt was a burst of grunge in the garden of flowers like a jet of negativity in the ocean of positivity.

Believe me, we left that place within fifteen minutes. My day came to an end before even it had started.

Before you read further, let me ask you couple of questions.

“Do you carry your past together?”

“Do you (sometime) remember those horrifying moments which drain your energy out of your soul?”

If you nod affirmatively to the above asked questions then you are drifting a bit from your positive path and if not rectified soon, it will going to take your life downwards sooner or later.

We all are human beings and we take our previous memories together. It’s a human tendency. The question isn’t about remembering mistakes or criticisms which we did or received in our earlier lives, but the question is taking those hair-raising time along with our lives and more importantly allowing those memories to ruin our present and future. These are like slow poison which kill you gently.

It’s like entering in a dark tunnel where you see nothing. Complete darkness. Complete black out. No light, still we move further with hope and faith on our little baby steps. Time may be daunting but with brave heart we move towards the search of light, towards a ray of hope. We come across some difficulties, we stumble in between still we never stop. We keep moving in search of that hopeful torchlight.

Finally, when we come out of the dark tunnel, we embrace the light. We dismantle the mask of fearful and dress the shield of relaxing attitude and wear smile.

This tunnel journey do teach us many things. It makes us internally strong and teaches us about patience and courageousness.

What will you carry along with you: A negative memory (darkness and stumbles) or a positive one (learning experiences) from this tunnel journey?

You said right, obviously a positive ones and will make sure that we do not repeat the mistakes which we did.

What will happen if we constantly carry those weirdo negatives and indulge ourselves in scary and spine-chilling thoughts?

I have seen many people across my circle, who keep talking about their failures, past negative experiences, illnesses etc. and once you listen to these people, you start feeling a negative vibes in the positive atmosphere like fishy smell in the garden of roses.

Its like carrying burdens on your own shoulders.

Result: They get trapped in the negative web and overthrow their own life. And their family’s life.

We must learn from our past but we should never carry them on our shoulders all the time. Covert those time into learning lessons and change your day, your life.

“Forgetting bad time leads to good and beautiful life.”

Story of a Cactus

A cactus stood all alone in the desert, wondering why it was stuck in the middle of nowhere.

I do nothing but stand tall here all day,” it sighed. “What use am I? I am the ugliest plant in the desert. My spines are thick and prickly, my leaves are rubbery and tough, my skin is thick and bumpy. I can’t offer shade or juicy fruit to any passing traveler. I don’t see that I am any use at all.”

 

All it did was stood in the sun day after day, growing taller and fatter. Its spines grew longer and its leaves tougher, and it swelled here and there until it was lumpy and lopsided all over. It truly was strange-looking. “I wish I could do something useful.” it sighed.

By day hawks circled high overhead. “What can I do with my life?” the cactus called.

Whether they heard or not, the hawks sailed away. At night, the moon floated into the sky and cast its pale glow on the desert floor. “What good can I do with my life?” the cactus repeated. The moon only stared coldly as it mounted its course.

A lizard crawled by, leaving a little trail in the sand with its tail. “What worthy deed can I do?” The cactus asked.

You?” the lizard laughed, pausing a moment. “Worthy deed? Why you can’t do anything! The hawks circled way overhead, tracing delicate patterns for us all to admire. The moon hangs high like a lantern at night, so we can see our ways home to our loved ones. Even I, the lowly lizard have something to do. I decorate the sands with these beautiful brushstrokes as I pull my tail along. But you? You do nothing but get uglier every day.

And so it went on, year after year. At last the cactus grew old and it knew its time was short.

Oh Lord,” it cried out, “I have wondered so long and I have tried so hard. Forgive me if I have failed to find something worthy to so. I fear that now it’s too late,” but just then cactus felt a strange stirring and unfolding, and it knew a surge of joy that erased all despair. At its very tip, like a sudden crown, a glorious flower suddenly opened in bloom.

Never had the desert known such a blossom. Its fragrance perfumed the air far and wide and brought happiness to all passing by. The butterflies paused to admire its beauty, and that night even moon smiled when it rose to find such a treasure.

The cactus heard a voice. “You have waited long,” Lord said. “The heart that’s seeks to do good reflects my glory, and will always bring something worthwhile to the world, something in which all can rejoice – even if for only a moment.

Moral of the Story: In two simple, yet very effective words, “Patience” and “Time”.

Patient is the key. Always have patience and keep working towards your goal no matter how difficulties you pass through, how many critics you face. Never ever get saddened and never get frustrated. Calm.

time_patienceGive time some Time. Time is the most important thing which has the ability to change everything. Whatever work we do it takes time. Tajmahal took 20 long years to get completed and once it got completed, it is known as one of the wonders of the world, it has become the Symbol of Love.

Have passion and be patient towards your goals and at the end of the day, you will find yourself at the top of the world.

Keep Smiling… 🙂
