Five years. Five years of daily blogging. Five years since I decided to never give up, no matter what. To keep writing, to keep blogging, to just keep at it for as long as it took. And what a ride …
God I ask you for ” WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, STRENGTH, POWER, PATIENCE, HIGH BEARING CAPACITY, STRONG FAITH, LOVE “.
All you asked for Is granted, Now tell me how are you going to use all those things which you asked for ?
What if All our wishes are granted ?, Everything we asked for is given. Now the question is what are you going to do with those things?

Now you know how badly someone wanted you,”Children forget that sometimes. They think themselves as a burden instead of a wish Granted.”
— FOR ONE MORE DAY.
The Knowing and the Doing When we first undertake to live the spiritual life we are seekers after knowledge. We soak up the sacred books, the sayings of the wise and the words of our teacher. After awhile, we sense something is missing. We are bursting with knowledge but our lives have not changed. Then one morning, after have read the words many times, we wake up and something is different. We realize that all the knowledge of all the wise men through the ages means nothing without doing. On that morning of the soul we become doers instead of listeners. Then the doors of wisdom open to us and our life changes forever. This is the “awakening”.

Over thinking happens when you live amongst your emotional reactions to your unconscious thoughts. That’s no efficient way to find answers. I learnt to observe my thoughts and not get tied up in how they make me feel. My thoughts move at lightning speed, but I can observe them. Now, thinking gets me answers instead of a headache and heartache. It seems people treat this as a sort of supernatural ability and give it the mumbo jumbo spin. But it’s much easier than you think. The only thing you require is the will to help yourself. Playing the victim card to try and get others to rationalise your actions is how most people seem to get caught up in their false truths. Only help those who literally can not help themselves. The ones who cry bloody murder are the ones who are worse off with, than without help.
