Be the change you wish to see in this world

I got something inspiring for you here…a short essay authored by me.


The sun rises and the sun sets…many come to this world and many depart from it.  But only the memories of a few remain afresh/etched in our hearts. These are the ones who created a change and unleashed revolutions.

In this long and exhausting race called life, nothing is unvarying except change. Change is the beauty and law of nature. Change is that elixir which keeps our spirit going. Change is what brings color to our lives and it is what adds a thrill to the otherwise monotonous existence.

Change is an essential aspect which mustn’t merely be sought from outside but also be inculcated in our lives.  Unfortunately, we humans are as quick as a rabbit to demand change from others but reluctant to change ourselves. We resist the criticism of others because we feel that a change will curtail our freedom and lifestyle. But a positive change in oneself is a valuable gain rather than a pain. Change must always come from our heart. Self realization is the key to change wherein one realizes his or her fallible deeds and changes it.

It’s only when we come to know ourselves that we come to know others. We can’t demand change in others if we can’t change ourselves. We cannot ask others to become perfect if we are not ready to take a step towards perfection.

In reality, a lot of us have revolutionary thoughts, ideals, ethics and dreams in our heart, but when it comes to application, none of us are ready to sacrifice our freedom for the greater good.

For example, in the simplest matter of plastic bag usage, we find it easy to advice others not to use this harmful pollutant. On the other hand, we are not ready to sacrifice our comfort by not using a plastic bag.

Hence, our feeble words of advice will fade away like writing on water because our words have no value if we do not follow them. As a stark contrast, I am reminded of a story of an insightful young woman.

When all the people around her used the poor as a stepping stone on their way to reach their success, this woman thought why not I protect them? When all the people around her wanted to be served, she thought why not I serve them. When all the people around her detested the underprivileged and unhealthy, she thought why can I not take care of them?

This pathbreaking young woman was none other than Mother Teresa. Her significant change of thought made her a ray of hope for the hopeless, strength for the weak and voice for the depressed.

As another example, I present my father’s exemplary behavior. My father used to advice me, my mom and my brother to exercise regularly and practice yoga for the wellness of our body and mind. But we did not heed his advice. Seeing this, he adopted his own principles and exercised regularly. Observing his self control and determination, we also changed. His determination, self reliance, courage and patience changed a family’s lifestyle.

If one man can change a family, a family can surely change another and we can soon create a positive change in the town, state, country and world.

Any situation or issue around us won’t change unless we are ready to change ourselves.  Doing what we say and practicing what we promise bears a remarkable impact on others. Let us pledge not to be fatigued by doing what is right. Let us light a candle rather than cursing darkness.

Everyone has to become an agent of change. Everyone has a spark, an idea to change the world. All we need to have is the courage, self reliance and self discipline. By our one step, we can unite this whole world under our noble cause and extend a hand to a better future.

Just a bit of time it takes

to help that poor boy on the lane,

Just a bit of time it takes

to give some food to the poor man with a huge, grey mane,

Just a bit of your precious seconds

To mend the broken hearts and their future,

Just a bit of your precious seconds

Is all it takes to put a hope of suture,

Just a bit of your valuable minutes

which you wouldn’t think about

Just a bit of your valuable minutes

use it to answer the poor’s shouts..

Good timber -Douglas Malloch

It was on my birthday on the 29th of December, when I first read an excerpt of a  poem by Douglas Malloch.

 

The tree that never had to fight,

for sun and sky and air and light,

but  stood out in the open plain,

and always got its share of rain,

never became a forest king

but lived and died a scrubby thing.

-Douglas Malloch

It was so inspiring to me as it speaks about the fruits of hard work in such simple lines.

I just thought I’d share it here.  😀

The battles I fought

There’s more than what meets your eye

you don’t know ’bout the battles I fought

with myself, my mind, my thoughts oh

You don’t know about the pains abound,

I could not put more in a song

I trusted no one except me,

which helped my fly out and soar high

But there’s more than what meets your eye

Don’t ever say, she’s coward I know

because you’ll never know about

the battles I fought

the battles I won.

this was probably wat kept me alive this week

Standing up high with the scars of tears still stained on the face,

I could see, through my unfazed eyes how far I had come

I had come this far and I know I can’t let go…

To fight the echoes in the mind yelling give up…Oh you can’t do it….

I just tried walking a bit further

resisting and walking further

further…
