When I run after what I think I want,

When I run after what I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;

If I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me, without pain.

From this I understand that what I want also wants me,
is looking for me and attracting me.

There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.

~ Rumi

What We Want or Need?

Often we want things we not really need. Regularly we are caught in the trap of our wants, getting frustrated not finding what we hoped for.

We know what we want
but only God knows what
we need.
Pray to give thanks
not to ask.
No ulterior motives.

Both armies pray
to win the war.
Take yourself
out of your prayers.
Seek only to learn to love,
to be in the presence
of God.

Our selfishness
is a trap.
Pray only for the
good of all
ending all prayer with
“Thy will be done.”

If somebody puts you down or criticizes you


Work hard
for what you want
because it won’t come to you without a fight.
You have to be strong and courageous
and know that you can do anything you put your mind to.
If somebody puts you down or criticizes you,
just keep on believing in yourself
and turn it into something positive.
Leah LaBelle

Chasing all our life..

We all like to be the creators of our own universe we we can control everything. Would we all not love to have everything what our heart desires? But when would it be that what shall satisfy us totally? when shall we feel totally happy with that what we have?
There always shall be the moment to go for better, for more, for ever …

Smiles here & Smiles there

The chase is on

Was or is it ever off??

Before birth the chase starts

And it don’t end

Till after our death also

But the sad part is

Object of chase varies

And we think

That we always

Require to go after

The next object of chase

To make our life better

Greedy Us?!!

Or the society has become that

I love to believe the latter

Chase after good education

Chase after good life partner

Chase after good living

Chase after good livelihood

When do you think

We should draw a line??

Or think too much of chasing

Time to sit down

And enjoy the things

Gathered from the previous chases

But we seldom do

Craving for better

Craving for more & more

Does this crave does any benefit??

To us or our dear ones

I guess it does

Or else why to go till such lengths

But I…
