The Desire

Last week I have read a very interesting passage in a book " Make your Life worthwhile "by Emmet Fox and I felt that I should share with you....... because it is really amazing............!!!!!!! -

We all have desires.........but do we really have a burning desire....???  Read this passage and decide.....

There is no true desire without a faculty and no faculty without opportunity.

When you REALLY desire to be or do something, when you really desire it - it is a sign that God wants you to do that thing, and He has signified His desire by giving you the necessary faculty. Indeed, that very desire is really the faculty itself making known to you by your craving for expression.

People have all sorts of PASSING WISHES, but a passing wish is not a real desire. In summer, a boy wants to be a professional baseball player, but in winter  he is going to be Ski champion...and for 24 hours after the big fire around the corner, he is going to be a fireman. His sister goes to the metropolitan and sees the bouquets being passed to the prima donna and wants to be a singer; but a month later, when a women  scientist gets the Nobel prize, she thinks she will be a great chemist instead...

None of these are true desires. They are passing fancies. A true desire stays, and as time goes on it increases in force instead of diminishing. It is steady, and without excitement.

Given the desire and the developed faculty, there is no need to look opportunity.....The door will open automatically

ഭയം

ഭയം .....

എന്തിനെയും ഭയം....

ഇന്നലകളെ ഭയം.....ഇന്നിനെ ഭയം...നാളെയും ഭയം..

ഇരുളിനെ ഭയം....വെളിച്ചത്തെ ഭയം.....

ശത്രുക്കളെ ഭയം.....മിത്രങ്ങളെ ഭയം.....

വീടിനെയും  വീട്ടുകാരെയും  ഭയം.....

എല്ലാവരെയും എല്ലാത്തിനെയും  ഭയം....

എന്നെത്തന്നെയും ഭയം.....
 
സ്നേഹമോഴിഞ്ഞ മനസ്സില്‍ ഭയം ചേക്കേറി......

... ഭയത്തെയാണോ  ടെന്‍ഷന്‍ എന്നും സ്‌ട്രെസ് എന്നും ഞാന്‍ വിളിക്കുന്നത്‌ ...?

My Purpose

"You have a duty to perform. Do anything else, do a number of things, occupy your time fully, and yet, if you do not do this task, all your time will have been wasted" - Rumi

What is the purpose of my life ? I asked this question many times to myself. More than four decades I have been living in this planet with the mercy of the ones who have been rightly identified their duty....and I should be definitely ashamed in asking this question for all these years and left with no answer. 

But I am not giving up.....Better late than never...am still in search of an answer.  I am not sure about the results...but I have to continue my search...

Millions might have lived and died in this earth in utter disappointment without knowing their purpose. Living the whole life in pain and misery !!! Living without knowing your purpose....Living away from your Creator....Also making the life of the people around us also miserable...This is called SIN....? I don't know....

I read some where that my duty had been decided before my birth itself...True....I have been given that small pouch of 'Talents' or "Tool Kit" also to do my expected duty. But I made a small dig and kept the kit inside and covered it with soil. Because I am afraid and confused...But sad ........I forgot my purpose.....some one told me that I can ask to the one who decided my purpose....I asked.......Due to my noisy mind I couldn't hear the reply...

One thing I know and am sure.... once I know my purpose and start moving towards it.... I will be the happiest....I will not be tired of my work anymore....,'Work is love made visible' told Khalil Gibran.....

Let me continue with my search....one day I will definitely find it......Yes... then my journey will be fruitful and beneficial to the whole universe..

Look at your eyes; they are so small, but they can see enormous things- Rumi
