I TRUST YOU!

Hi there! Its been a long time since I last posted. Hope you all are doing fine. The past few days have been a roller coaster ride for me in some sorts. Many changes took place in my life which has and will continue to exert a lasting impression on my whole life.

We all face such situations in life, which change the whole perspective of life altogether. A moment, a fraction of second is what it takes to change everything. Being a worshiper of existence, I am ever optimistic. Yeah, we all have gone through that rough patch. The harsh reality of life. We all have gone through that phase when we crumble down by the weight of our own failures, guilt and mistakes. There are times when we desperately pray that this phase we are going through isn’t true. Let this be just a nightmare. We’ll wake up one fine morning to find out that it was all a bad dream. But no, somewhere in our hearts we are aware of this brutal fact that this is true. This is life, verily the life in its true colors.  It is at that particular moment when we realize that we are all alone. We search for shoulders to cry on, people who would sympathize us, pacify us. We search for people who would trust us. But in that desert of sorrow, we feel alone, deprived and lost.

  WHAT IS TO BE DONE?

     Wait, watch and take care. Right now, you feel you are all alone. You think that in this war, you are fighting all alone, but its not true. I am with you. We are with you and we all trust you. That harassment you faced while going to work, that mistake for which your boss abused you so much, that  failure which still haunts you, trust me we all have faced and some of us are still facing these things You worry over the failed relationship you broke up  with, last week? Well congrats! It made you strong. There’s nothing which can’t be fixed if tried real hard. There’s nothing wrong in committing mistakes. Mistakes give you an excellent lesson and a gem to utilize in the later period. It gives us the gift of EXPERIENCE! With perseverance and experience, any man can bring down empires.

Do mistakes, but learn from them. Utilize them as your experience. Grab the opportunities by both hands and brush aside all the negative thoughts that stand between you and your objective. Remove all the negative elements from your life which deters you in any way.

 Above all,  have faith in GOD. HE trusts you. Remember, It took the perseverance and workmanship of the Supreme Being to create a masterpiece like you! you are special and I have complete faith on you.

    I TRUST YOU.

    WE TRUST YOU.

So my dear friend! get up, wear your armor and strike again. The war of life isn’t over yet!

Why are our prayers often unheard?

Prayers and various ascetic practices have been considered as means of attaining peace, a calming balm for healing the various wounds acquired by the struggle we face in our day -to-day lives. All the faiths have made it compulsory to include daily prayers in their daily routine. Some consider Prayer as something miraculous, something which renders them capable for performing certain superhuman deeds. Some others pray just to attain peace of mind. There are also many such devotees who pray to their Lord for saving themselves from some impending danger and to avoid trouble. Whatever might be the reason behind it, Prayers are undoubtedly the strongest articles of faith irrespective of the sect one belongs to. To sit in front of the Lord and to express our desires, our feelings is a part of the prayer, but not the only part!

      But it is utterly surprising that how, in our so called rational world, we have completely lost our senses when it comes to religion and spirituality. Praying and other religious practices, which have always been considered as the pivot of life and growth, are being seen as ways of escaping the real world. Some even call them ‘job of the idles’.

 On the other hand the actual meaning of prayer is quite opposite from this. Actual prayer consists of various parts. While meditating upon the Lord, praising and glorifying the Almighty is obviously an important aspect of prayer, however, it is not the only part! Prayer is actually a three-fold procedure. One part is praising, glorifying the God. Next is to contemplate HIS attributes and to try and imbibe these attributes within our character. The attributes of Truth, Perfection, Mercy, Compassion, Justice and many such virtues are considered Godly in the scriptures. If we worship the Almighty but fail to develop compassionate feelings towards any of His creation, then indeed our prayer is not the real one! If after years of praying, we still have to fight over something with our neighbors, then indeed it is to be contemplated seriously whether or not we have understood the true meaning of prayer. The third part is another important part – doing!

  Yeah, the part of doing, the part of executing what we have said and contemplated upon. Without doing, the condition of the prayer is as worse as a man whose limbs are severed and is still forced to walk by continuous thrashing by a stick. No prayer claims to work without completing the third part of doing. It is like you have completed the electrical circuit and have fitted a bulb. But if you do not switch it on, Will the bulb glow? The same stands true for prayer. Even if by advanced ascetic practices, we claim to have acquired some divine connection with the Lord Almighty, that won’t be of much use if we fail to complete the final procedure of doing.

       The whole universe works on a ‘cause-effect relationship’ . It’s not like we can just do anything out of free air instantly. Even the incidents which apparently look like Miracles have a huge science behind it. Everything is governed by a set of laws and rules. We can not build a house by just any material according to our whims or wish. We need to understand the soil texture, the type of soil, the ground water level and much more. In a nutshell, we must always remember that praying is not just an idle pastime of a lazy man but rather it is an ever dynamic process which involves praising the Lord, contemplating upon His attributes and doing accordingly. Then, surely our prayers will be heard and we shall be bathed in the river of bliss!
