Have you ever walked over sand? Then, have you noticed the footprints behind you? They are not just footprints. They are silent teachers. You have to be a good student for them to be your teacher. Don’t recall your mark sheets… I know they are best suited lying dead in that folder and locked in a locker. They don’t say a thing about how good student you are. Just try to listen and read the footprints. You’ll be proud being a good student.
So what do they teach you? When you look behind you’ll notice that some footprints have faded. Those footprints is you, some moments back. That tells you, time will never let you be the same person. That’s why, You never meet the same person again. It becomes difficult to find yourself, what you were in your past. Add to it our memories, which too tend to fade with time.
They teach us to find happiness in small things and that your low time will be over soon. Just as they fade as the time passes. Be careful and be true to your conscience as someone else may be stepping over your footprints and following the same path as you.
You’ll never be alone all the time when you walk. There will be a stage where the path will be full of footprints. So much so that you won’t be able to clearly distinguish between them. You won’t be able to see your path. You are lost. This is the stage when you have to discover yourself and discover your path. Find a way out of these chaos. Create your own path.
While you walk, there will be footprints which may act as a guide. Trust yourself. Trust your instincts. Walk with those footprints to find whether they are guiding you or misguiding you. But remember, A guide can only show you the path. He will never teach you how to walk.
Throughout the journey, you’ll find few who will leave footprint on your heart (Don’t worry. They won’t be stepping on your heart). Never ever let these footprints fade away. Then, Even if you are walking alone, you won’t be alone.
Till the footprints become your teacher
God is very busy these days. When the festive season comes he has to be busy(The only time when everyone remembers his existence). Right from a kid aged six years to an old person aged sixty years is asking for something. A gift which will make him happy. God never likes to see his children’s unhappy. So to fulfill their wishes he tries his best. He never fulfills all the wishes but the ones which will really make him happy.
This tidy schedule often makes him forget things. Then we say god didn’t listen to me. He didn’t fulfill my wish. It also gets converted into, I hate god or I don’t believe in god. In our office we have a board where we pin some notes. We call them stickies. God has also followed the same idea. Look at the picture. He pinned a note on Earth.
His To-do list contains “Prove Existence”. Some posts back I talked about this. In today’s world of science, we hardly believe in god. He doesn’t exists as he cannot be seen. Now you have a question in your mind. Why god wants to prove his existence? Let him be an invisible personality (Is god a person??). I have no interest whether he exists or not.
There is a simple reason why god wants to prove his existence. You are walking down the road with pride. You never look down or back. Just forward as it symbolizes progress for you. Suddenly you slip and fall. You just stepped on a banana peel. Curse the road cleaner and the monkey who ate that banana. When you fall, everyone around you probably starts laughing at you. You are alone and no one is with you. At that time god is with you, if you believe him.
If you have belief then you’ll laugh at yourself, take that moment on lighter side and continue walking. That is the strength god can give. And that is why he wants to prove his existence. He wants everyone to believe, there is someone behind who cares for you. That feeling itself is relief from any pain. Just start believing in him and feel the difference.
There was a time when I also didn’t believed his existence. Then some strange incidents started happening with me. Things which I never thought would happen with me. It’s not just coincidence. Coincidence can happen once or twice, not every time. Just start looking at small things that happen in your life. He is always there and exists.
Till you see the invisible…
That is an out of the world checklist. Do you ever forget to clean some parts while taking a bath? For me it’s not possible. I never thought of such things. Just nonsense….
Cute smile. Isn’t it?? Sometimes we are afraid to smile. The reasons are the braces or the tooths like above. May also be because of yellow teeth. Don’t be afraid and give a smile. As if no one is looking at you. Set this smile in your memory and recall it in such situations.
