Whatever we do and whatever we don’t, It’s our decisions which paint the picture of our future. Decisions are often very difficult. There are times when you are unable to decide. There are times when you have to take a quick decision. No time to think and there is no situation like “unable to decide“. In such situation, humans have mysterious and spontaneous reactions to the situation. We call it our instinct. Someone inside you (Not in your clothes) guides you to mark a way ahead. Your role is to listen to this “Someone” inside.
Very often we listen to what others say. Parents excluded because hardly any child listen to their parents. If you do, then your parents are lucky. So the “others” include your friends mostly who themselves are in a situation where they cannot take any decision. But they influence you to take yours. The results of this…. No guessing needed.
Why don’t you listen to the inner self? The instincts which always guide you to a safe path for the journey. Take example of childrens. While studying, they know what they are capable of. But if the parents are Lawyers, Doctors, Engineers then often they want their childrens to be the same. They don’t give a chance to their child to express himself. You don’t listen to them, but you are forced to. As I said earlier we have instincts which guide us. We don’t need anyone else to decide about us. Good instincts usually tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out.
It’s your life, It’s your destiny and not theirs. This doesn’t mean that ignore everyone else and do whatever you want. Listen to them but don’t let your decision fluctuate as you get advice one after another. The final decision should be yours and it should be influenced by your instinct.
Remember, Your mind knows only some things. Your inner voice, your instinct, knows everything. If you listen to what you know instinctively, it will always lead you down the right path.
A saint asked his disciples, ‘Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?’
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said,
‘Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.’
‘But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?’ asked the saint. ‘Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a
soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry?’
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint.
Finally he explained,
‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.’
Then the saint asked, ‘What happens when two people fall in love?
They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their
hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small…’
The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to
each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

I was going through my e-mails and stumbled upon this. This is posted on many blogs and websites, but I still thought of sharing this. The message inside is too good and worth repeating. I had love for gardening and this computer took me away from mother nature. I am not a gardener any more. I will still try my best to do gardening like said above. Forge about the fruits, I’ll be happy if I am able to convert seeds into plants.
Today is friendship day. It is supposed to be the first Sunday of August. Friendship is a relation which stands out of all. And today is the day to remember all your friends anywhere on earth or traveling in space or may be somewhere underground. Just remember the friend and I assure he’ll be doing the same. Whenever I remember a friend of mine I somehow get a visit in next couple of days. Or a call at least. Why I don’t call my friends is out of question. Something I never understood of myself. I do call them sometimes. But not often.
It used to be often when I was in college. Since my professional life there have been distances. My friends are found to be nowhere. I am still searching them on orkut and trying to have a knot there. When I am away from old friends it’s good that I am finding some new ones. Then I remember old saying. “Old is Gold”. They are pieces of gold and make me rich.
So this post is to remember all my friends all around the world whom I don’t contact or lost my contact. I still remember you. I still miss you. You always have a place in my heart.
