I wish I was absent,
Absent from this whole weary cycle, from its crests and troughs.. from the way it changes and from the way it makes me change.. from the dreams and realities.. from the false and the truth.. from the way and the destination.. from the beauty and the ugliness which it unfolds.. from the spring and the autumn and the whole of its faces… from hatred and from love too.. from the yes and the no.. from this way or that way… from the nothingness and the wholesomeness.. from belief, faith and from untrust too.. from heaven and hell.. from hope and from distress…
I wish I was absent.. absent from you and me.. from what makes it.. absent from the fragrance and from its origin.. I wish I was absent… absent from this life…
Once upon a time, there was a small girl. She always ask for a candy from Santa on Christmas. Day and night she would think that the Santa will come and give her a candy. She used to be very happy with the thought. Her faith often used to get fade away as she was just a child, she used to think sometimes – maybe there is no Santa, or he may not come or he may not give her the candy but, she used to recollect herself and ask for the same.
After the wait of few months, when the time of Christmas came, she finally got the candy from Santa!! WOW she is very happy, enjoying, her heart filled with joy that she has got what she wanted. Her belief had come true!
She ran to her friend’s house to show what she had got. When she met her friend, she came to know that her friend has been gifted with a box full of gifts, which had many candies, teddies, dolls and chocolates as well.
She was disappointed. She forgot about her candy, something she had wanted from always and went and sat under a tree thinking why she was not given such a big gift. Was her friend more deserving, or was she not a nice girl.
Just then the Santa came there and asked her why she was sad on Christmas. She asked him the same – why he didn’t give her the box of gifts. He replied – I had kept that for you. The whole season I was gathering the best gifts which I could give to you on Christmas since you are the best girl. But you always used to ask for the candy. So I gave that box to the girl next door and thought that you really will be happy with the candy you wanted from always.
Isn’t that something which happens with every one of us? How many times we have said – “This is the last time I am asking something, after this I won’t ask for anything !” We are busy asking gifts from GOD but we forget that HE knows better what to give and when to give.
Have faith. Things will happen on their time and even better than what we can think of.
Just go on and keep serving!
You know what’s the first step to be taken to do anything successfully? It’s this –
BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN!
All the preparation, learning, giving hours of your time to a task, all are secondary. The first and the foremost is to believe that yes, you are capable enough to achieve what you want to.
We all know and now understand that thoughts are energies, they are the one which can make and even destroy anything. They are the base originators from where everything in this world is made of. All the inventions we see today in our day-to-day life was a thought which originated in someone’s mind and it was a belief which made it true.
What is a belief?
The dictionary defines it as:
1 : a state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in some person or thing
2 : conviction of the truth of some statement or the reality of some being or phenomenon especially when based on examination of evidence
A belief is something that WE PERSONALLY CHOOSE to form in our own minds about the way WE CHOOSE to perceive the world around us. It is our recognition that some idea or thing is true and valid.
We have instances of some of the extremely successful people who have believed in the power of Belief. According to Henry Ford – “Whether you believe you can or you can’t, you’re right”. Steve Jobs also said – “Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
These people too knew the importance of believing in oneself. There is a simple instance from everyone’s life – Riding a Bicycle. The moment we feel that we’ll fall and we’ll not be able to control the bicycle, we tend to fall. Such is the power of belief and a mind-set.
Belief is the power stored within you which if used properly, is enough to move mountains.
Just believe that YOU CAN and you will definitely do!
