Strength within

At times we tend to think that we are the children of a lesser god. We think that we do not have the potential to achieve anything worthwhile on our own.

At times we tend to think that we are the children of a lesser god. We think that we do not have the potential to achieve anything worthwhile on our own.

That is not true. Here is how you may tap your strength.

We are used to giving our strength away to something or somebody else. We give away power to icons, heroes, politicians, priests, wives, husbands, bosses, parents, lovers and friends.

We do so because we do not value who we are: we seek to find our worth in the externals. What we do not realise is that we neither need the power or backup from outside nor do we have to depend on anybody else for it. What we need is ‘self-recognition’.

The power of the atom is not power coming from an external source but from the power of the dormant atom that has been kindled. This is possible through an atom, that is a part of electricity, just a tiny particle, a speck. What if we exploded the materialistic living being of a person into small particles of super consciousness? If that explodes, it will bring so much power and light.

The real power from within comes out of regular communion. It comes as if flowers are raining on you, as divine blessings, as fresh fragrance. It comes as love, as compassion. It brings along all great attributes and all the great values of life suddenly to their full bloom. It is the spring of your life. We now treat others as fellow souls; we are one with the universe.

The metamorphosis in your life is from materialistic to a spiritual person. You are nearer God. You have developed a life philosophy. You have made friends with Him. The world is your canvas and you are in a commanding position. Instead of easy priya marg, you have followed the more difficult shreya marg. Kudos go to you.

What else can you wish for? Your life journey is in for smooth sailing!
