Book of Life.

Yes, you might be wondering what this guy is up to now πŸ€”

I was just going through a book and found that there where many pages in it with many languages, words, sentences and images. To my astonishment, none of the pages were similar. Every single page was different in one or the other way. With single constant in all the pages of the book was the word “YOU”.

Having seen this in a book I realized, this is not just the case with this book. It’s pretty much the same with almost every other book we see in a book shelf. Most of the words get jumbled up to create different sentences and with words many images also get created, which sometimes will have some meaning to it and sometimes they really don’t.

Having said all these, I would now introduce the characters I created in my imaginary world to explain all that I wrote above. Pardon me for making you read this article twice. Because, I am sure you would want to correlate with the metaphors I considered to express my thoughts.

Book shelf – World we live in.

Book – Life of any individual

Pages – Phases in our life.

Languages – Diversified class of people with different culture.

Words – People around like you and me.

Sentences – Moments that get created based on the people in our life.

Images – Dreams that we create to fulfill it someday.

So bottom line is..

Be it of any language, a book is meaningful to read only when it has right set words which will create the best of pages and some memorable sentences which fulfills the images that are created before book is closed.

Never, waste a Book [Life] that is given to you. Create some valuable pages [phases of your life] so that when you look back there are no regrets but are filled with enjoyable sentences [moments] to cherish. Be sure that all your images [dreams] are completed before your book of life is closed [Last breath].

Do you love your book? πŸ™‚ If not, then better start re-writing it soon.. πŸ™‚

Marriage – Decision Phase.

Hey guys, I apologize for not writing anything for last few days. Was stuck with loads of work in and out. Anyways, hope you all still there to read and support my writings πŸ™‚

Well, today’s post will be about the phase we go through right before marriage. As most of my friends and me are in a phase of our life, where it is very certain to get notified and be an eligible bachelor to get married. It’s quiet natural to be in the confused state of mind. As to who really is the perfect match for you right?

I hear most of my friends who say out loud that they are getting irritated with this word marriage already. Any thoughts on why this might be happening to them?

As per my understanding, I feel marriage is a very crucial phase in our life. It is such a phase which can either make or break your life. So it very important for us to be careful and choose our partner for life [our better half] very wisely.

And, when we will be in a mindset to take a call on this in a more practical way.. most of the times because of peer pressure from people around you, your relatives, family members, friends, colleagues you end up getting into a state of mind where you get a thought.

God, why do I even have to marry someone. I am doing well all by my own, why can’t everyone just leave me alone.

When you get such thought my friend, I would want you to just seclude yourself from the rest of the world. Stay calm. Sit in a place where it’s only you and no one else to disturb you at-least for sometime. Think over what is the right thing for you to do now?Β What is it that is exactly bothering you?

Is it that any pressure your feeling because of your relatives & family?

Is it that your still not ready to get married?

Is it that you’re not getting the right partner for your life?Β 

Think over it calmly, breakdown your thoughts, analyse it. When you feel your helpless you ain’t really able to figure out what to do I humbly request you to bow down before god almighty and seek his guidance. I am sure he will not let you down. In fact, what I honestly suggest everyone is please keep god in first place no matter what decisions your making in your life. Specially in decisions like marriage, it is really very important.

If you feel that you’re going through a lot of peer pressure – Just let the people who matter to you in your family, relatives or whoever it may be to let them know in what state of mind you are and what is actually bothering you. I am sure, if they care for you they will understand your point of view.

If you feel that you’re still not ready for marriage – Please make it clear to your family members about it at the same time give them a clear understanding why you feel so and by when you think you can be okay to get along with it.

If your feeling thatΒ you’re not getting the right partner – This is the most trickiest part, there can’t be a generic way of dealing with it. But, if it would be me I would pray to god and ask him to do his will for me, guide me to a person who is the right one for me. I am sure he will lead me to the right one! πŸ™‚

I am not sure, if this was of some help for you. If it was then please drop your comments and feedback’s, would love to read them πŸ™‚

Point of view.

This is an instinctive post that I am writing today. It just came to my mind when I was watching a movie while I was having dinner with my family this night.

It’s midnight here in India now and I am writing this post, maybe this is why people who know me well call me as nocturnal these days! πŸ˜€.

Coming back to what I was saying. Situation in the movie was something like this.

A marriage proposal breakup took place because the guy [who is self-centered, only cares about his happiness and he just wants to win and live his life just the way he wants to, he was totally against the word compromise and believed that two people in marriage can be happy only when they are exactly the same] on the other side was this girl [who was exactly opposite of how he was, she always cared about others around her, who believed that she would be happy when everyone along with her is happy and the one who believed if two people in marriage needs to be happy it is not necessary that they should be the same inΒ  everything].

With this background, it so happened that the guy felt, the girl was making lot of compromises to make herself fit into his lifestyle, his likes & dislikes. She had to leave her dance for him as she was learning it from past 20 years and enjoyed doing it. Little did he know that the girl was doing all this for him only because she clearly knew and saw that her world and priorities with the marriage would be just him and she was doing all that with her wish and was happy doing it.

After all that took place, girl was shattered to pieces when she knew that the guy whom she had started to love and felt that he is the perfect guy for her had left her completely broken with his point of view.

If you try to understand something from this, this just wasn’t the part of only the movie scene I narrated above. It’s almost the same with you, me and everyone around us these days. Rarely, you try to understand what is the point of view of other person in front of you. Based on whatever the situation you are in, you almost tend to build the probable possibilities, foresee things based on your assumptions and give your verdict to the person standing in front of you and just walk away.

If it does happen like this, for sure you will lose the person who was in front you while you passed the verdict because you never gave him/her any chance of understanding his/her point of view.

Well, because of this I see that most of us loosing out on hard-earned relationships be it friends, family, relatives or whoever it is. Only when you express your point of view & allow the one in front of you to express his point of view. Things get clear. Misunderstanding never occur. Every relationship will be a wonderful place to say without any hatred, misunderstandings and heart-aches.

And yes, later part of the movie the girl somehow made him realize he never gave her a chance to express her point of view and when he got to know what the girl’s point of view was about what he had thought about the compromises she was making for him and why she was doing all that for him. ItΒ was a happy ending to movie at the end.

Live your life. Express your point of view. Allow others to express it too and see how life changes in the best possible ways.

Honest opinion. Feel free to express your opinion about this. Let me know if I have missed out on anything. I will surely be more than happy to look into it.

Happy Reading πŸ™‚

Cry out.

I am writing this post today. Not because of any specific reason, but just to express myself and what I truly feel sometimes.

Being human it’s true every one of you go through hardships, troublesome time, confused, do something which you don’t want to do but eventually have to do because there is no other go, may it be for your good or bad, completely pressurised and won’t understand how will you ever be able to look up and face the world around you.

Just because of this reason that you are surrounded with so many people around you. It’s natural to hold yourself back and make yourself strong enough that you appear all rock solid, emotionally stable and strong human in front of everyone and also you tend to prove it to yourself. True. Undoubtedly, you must get strong to face the world around you.

But, amidst of all this there comes a time when you feel deep down within you that all you want to do once is TO CRY OUT LOUD.

You know, it’s really very difficult to actually cry your heart out when your surrounded with so many people who care about you, who can’t see you break down like that and that’s why you stand up again and cry within yourself in the closet of your own self, without letting anyone know that you actually did cry out some-night, some-day or whenever possible.

But, doing this will burden your heart more and more. As days pass by, you will seem to be rock solid in front of everyone except for the one person and that one person is YOU who knows that even you want to cry yourself out and lighten yourself.

Trust me when I say this, when you really make some time for yourself and spend some time alone and rethink, relieve yourself from such heartaches by crying yourself out is when you actually feel much much better.

I wish, I could do that too sometime soon. You should also try this out and maybe then you may feel much much better before crying your heart out.

To all the brave hearts out there, who are staying strong for themselves, their family, their close ones, their friends or be it for anyone you love.

Honest opinion. Not being judgemental. But trying to be practical. πŸ™‚

Missing Piece of Puzzle.

Puzzle is a word which derives lots and lots of metaphoric explanation when compared to our day-to-day life.

How many times you have ever been puzzled in your life. How many of you have come across this situation?

One moment you feel you have started to get all that you desire or wish to have in your life. Everything is falling in place. Your super happy about it.

The very next moment you start to feel there is something very important which is still missing in your life. And suddenly you start craving for it. All the happiness is gone for a toss. Only thing you want is that something which you crave for even after you have every other thing with you.

People might say it’s human tendency to always crave and desire for something new every time. I totally agree with it.

But at the same time. There will be something very special to you which we will leave you completely puzzled and you really can’t be without it in your life.

You might even get a thought. Why should I only be in this kind of situation every single time.

True! that it is but-natural. At this very moment you might be puzzled. You might be in complete confusion. Perplexed. Worried.

But, amidst all this remember. Bottom line is be sure of one thing. There is nothing that happens in your life which has no purpose or rightful reason behind it.

If that precious piece is missing and keeping you puzzled. There is a reason. Wait for it. There comes a time which will answer the reason behind the missing piece which is keeping you puzzled.

In short. Life is a Puzzle and Craving for something precious in your life is the missing piece. When you get it is the ultimate time when the puzzle is completely solved.

Happy Reading. 😊

Introspect.

I always believe if you have anything in your mind and your doubtful about it.

Introspect. If at all you do introspect. Then be happy about it. Undoubtedly you’re in the right track. Because when you do and listen to your good inner voice. Your saved from committing any mistake or sin against god.

If not, then your bound to do a mistake or something that is not right by listening to your bad inner voice and commit mistake or sin against god.

All that I expressed above. Is because of the statement I heard from my brother when he said yesterday evening during healthy discussion about word of god.

If you’re a person led by Holy Spirit you will not do anything contrary to it in your day-to-day life.

So if you’re not introspecting yourself before doing something. Be it anything lawful or unlawful. Think about it. Start introspecting and listen to your good inner voice. Be sure. Things will change. Blessings will flow and good things are bound to happen.

Happy Reading 😊

Mom.

Hey Mom,

This is a letter to you from your son on your birthday.

I would first like to say though you’re a very soft natured and warm-hearted person, thank you for being so rock solid. I know it never was an easy Journey. There were many situations when you were drained completely with sheer trauma of disappointment and sadness because of all untimely death of dad. But, I want to thank you for being rock solid and standing firm for me and my sister and regaining strength for our sake.

You made me strong by imbibing in me the word of god and taught me ways of how I can walk in faith by clinging on to the word of Christ.

With this I would like to say on your birthday.

All your days of sadness, trouble and hurt are gone by. I promise you, I’ll keep all of them miles & miles away from you. I will through the grace of god fulfil all your dreams and get you all that you wanted to have and see to it that you will always have that wonderful smile on your face all through the days of your life ever after.

Love you mom. πŸ’ž

Thankyou so much for being there for me and my sister all the time. Happy Birthday. πŸŽ‚

Eulogy.

From me and all my cousins.

Eulogy to our Daddy.

Mr. Franklin S Peter was born on 9th June 1942. He was eldest among his siblings with 2 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers born to Mr. & Mrs. Ruth Sumanthappa Peter.

You all might wonder why am I calling my doddappa as our daddy. It’s Solly because, from the time we all cousins were born we lived in a joint family and ever since then we called him as our “Daddy” and having lost our father’s few years back. It made us realise that it was gods plan for us to call him as Daddy.

Having said this, as he grew along in life he got married to Mrs. Macline F Peter and was blessed with 2 sons. And was blessed enough to have witnessed his grand children’s Asher, Othniel and Olivia.

Summing up his life in short. I keep coming back to one thought. Never will you meet a man who was more faithfully lived his values. He was a teacher of all things. He was a preacher, a carpenter and many more. There was no work which he ever said was not possible. His method was simple and was a man of perfection.

It’s true, at any age when faced by ethical dilemma. You will find yourself coming back to one simple question. What would my father do? That’s how his presence was to the entire family now.

When it came to academics. He left it half way down the lane at PC Jabins science college as he had to be a helping hand to his hard-working father who was his role model. And then on it was a non stop commitment towards his work and family.

Even at the age of 75 (post retirement). He never was a man at rest. You would always find him busy in one or the thing.

This was just a gist of how he was in his entire life that I have seen.

And so would like to say. You have been great and faithful throughout your life Daddy. May your soul rest in peace.

Good & Bad Inner Voice.

There lived this cute couple.

These two never used to speak with each other face to face except for that of phone calls and texts (Though they both were from the same city)

Talking over the call and text were the only means of communication for there rescue. (As they both studied in two different colleges in different cities)

(You can for sure imagine the gush of thoughts and emotions flowing through in any long distance relationships rite)

Same was the case with these two as they had controlled their desire to meet each other for almost many years.

Even after having mixed feelings, anxiety and many more temptations of lust and so on.

Love for each other and maturity they had developed over the period of time being in such relationship surpassed every other thing they were going through.

Amidst all this they somewhere knew about one rock solid fact which was the sole reason for them to overcome every temptation they came across in their relationships.

(They knew)

God is the one who should have control of their lives and they cannot do it on their own.

If they wished to. They could have taken the steering of their lives and fallen a prey for every temptations they came across. But, even though they almost were about to fall for it. In reality they never really got into the trap of temptations and got saved from it.

It’s true. Every one will always have two inner voices. One which prompts you to do all the things that are good for you. The other which prompts you to do all the things that are bad or not so good for you.

Moral: It is always under your control as to which voice do you want to listen and act upon. If your wise enough to decide on this. Be sure you have won most of the battles for the rest of your life.

Disclaimer: I have tried to explain the confusion about listening to inner voice within you. You cannot actually blame saying you couldn’t control yourself for no matter whatever reason it might be.

Fact is if you actually controlled, you listened to the good inner voice. If you couldn’t control then you have probably listened to your bad inner voice.

Hope so I have made my point clear through this short story. Please feel free to express your views on the same using the comments section below.

Happy Reading. πŸ™‚
