What do you see when you close your eyes?

One cannot recognize anyone if he does not recognize himself. To understand this world one has to begin with himself. What is the world like? Is it the way we see it? Or is it the way we take it? If you take it is as good, it is. If you take it as evil, that’s how it will be. You will find it as a reflection of what you are!

Do you know why do you do things that you do? One studies to qualify, qualifies to get a degree and gets a degree to earn money. He works to earn money, he eats to satisfy hunger, he sleeps to get refreshed. But what about living? To feel the life? To feel alive? What does a man do? Nothing much. Everything keeps going with a flow. Our sensitivities too have gone habitual to our routine that there is no change. Nothing touches us.

Once, eye questioned a man, that what was it for? To see or to cry? The man answered it was the source for him to see things and explore them. With its help, he saw this beautiful and colorful, dark and painful world. The eyes replied that it was fine, but what did he learn through the scenes? Because it sees almost everything. In a rose plant there is this beautiful rose and prickles. In a lake, mud and then there is lotus. There are gardens and dump yards in the same town. Gods exist and so do the devils. There is a ‘hurrah!’ and then there is ‘alas!’. There is smile and there are tears. But what did he learn? It said “close your eyes for a moment and try to learn something from anything and then ask yourself. Is it the right thing that you learnt? Do you have the filter on?”

The filter is essential because many a times we don’t know that the things we do are right or wrong. A number of beliefs, faiths, mentalities and thoughts, etc have become rigid in our minds. Do we ever filter them? Probably, no!

A scuba diver, who used to earn his living by selling pearls once dreamt of gifting a pearl that he found that day to the needy kid, who was immensely in need of food and money. The time, he handed over the pearl to the kid, a tear fell off on his wrist and it made him realize that the tear was no less than any pearl. He woke up and cried and looking into the mirror, that reflected the price of the tears of happiness!

Love, emotions, care, sympathy, humbleness, respect, purity and condolences lie within us. We are the ones who fail to discover and express. We expect respect and love but we don’t want to earn them. Why? Because we don’t want to give anything and just receive. We have to learn to earn and to earn we need to spend.

When you see to it you don’t hurt anyone, Everyone shall see to it you are not hurt too. You just need to find the right people at the right time. Sometimes finding isn’t essential if you are good, people that are good shall be attracted towards you. So just close your eyes, use the filter and see to it that you hold no dirt in your mind.
High time my friend! Talk to yourself because you are the best inspiration to yourself.

Concluding it, don’t trust a man based on his promise, trust a promise based on the man!
