Malala Yousafszai, who stood up in defence of her peers’ right for education in Afghanistan and got, thus shot, by Taliban troops, has won 2014 Noble Prize for her great release “I am Malala”. A well earned prize.
Perhaps I didn’t yet read the book, but I surely read a lot about the little great girl of immense wisdom, courage and insight.
Indeed, insight is a talent and wisdom is a matter of perception and choice!
Happiness is: Seeing justice enacted.
May be it’s time for me to now read “I am Malala”
Congratulations Malala, this is a well- earned and well-deserved prize!!!
Pain is and has always been part of the human soul. Sometimes it has the role of making one sense and taste particular emotions that mostly relate to pain.
But let not the heart get used to hurtful kind of pain and all that comes through it.
Don’t reside much in it and make it not reside in you.
For once the heart gets used to the taste of pain it grows attached to it and dwell in it for prolonged periods than it used to in the past.
Connect to pain as you wish.. if you need to, for joy is a kind of pain, an intense feeling triggered in the soul and heart.
Excitement is also a kind of pain, same way love, sorrow, worry, hope are!
So connect and live the movement in the heart but keep that which is good and drift away from that which “Hurt” for hurt is an abhorrent kind of pain, not the pleasant one you should maintain.
Pain is one thing and hurt is another!
Hurtful kind of pain is addictive but pleasant pain is bliss, it cleans the soul and empowers it.. it’s your call where to reside!
There’s always this natural force that keeps each one of us moving. Yet they tend to vary in intensity, endurance and to a great extent, the core.
For some, they’re driven by the need to fulfil some duty or duties. For others, it’s the authoritative power of motivation that just pushes you ahead for miles and for as far as it takes to reach your aspired goals. For many others, it’s the power of routine and inhibiting life cycle that’s too large and complex for you to change or pause- which makes you so small and to a great extent aimless.
You can control the intensity, type and durability of that power moving you by selecting the source and paying a great attention to its soundness. Some rely on friends, others take books and knowledge as their reference and backbone. For others, it’s God, the primary source of power and prime motivator getting people move ahead with their plans, aims and aspirations. That third source of power doesn’t underestimate or overwrites the first two, but it rather covers them all, engages them all and makes up for the shortcoming of them all. It’s the power of faith-Faith in Almighty.. faith that you were brought to this life for a purpose.. Faith that there’s a reason behind all that’s happening and taking place; good or bad, small or big– there’s logic! It’s a standalone power that can fill all your need and places in you an endless flow of energy that gets you going, enthusiastically, faithfully and joyously, regardless of the obstacles that may come in your way, big or small. Just keep going, for indeed you will never stop the motion of life, you will just mute your role in it.
As Robert Frost once put it, summing up the essence of the force of life “it goes on”- yes life must go on, just learn how to live it well and enjoy it to the max.
What is learning but a leap into an abundant pool of unexplored realities?
You decipher one aspect and let go of a slight share of ignorance that you’ve always had.
You add to your mind a bit of knowledge and get out a similar bit of ignorance, and continue doing so until you know more exist, and not until you no more think that you’re in need of more. Read the rest of this entry
