ILLUSION

Have you ever had a dream that seems so real, when you woke up you didn't know what to believe? What would you do if what you thought was true wasn't and what you thought wasn't true was? Would you retreat into your dreams with the hope of finding a more perfect reality? Sometimes life is stranger than a dream and the only way to wake up is to face what lies hidden in your soul. And you can only hope that in those moments of dark reflection that you are not alone."
[Lucas Scott-One Tree Hill]

Sooner or later you got to accept and face the reality. The sooner the better! Be brave.

The heart speaks louder than the tongue

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
[John Bunyan]

The heart does speaks louder then the tongue. Seems more effective too. The connection is so strong. Words aren't needed. The heart speaks itself. It's like magic; being stuck in a trance. Praying to Allah, letting the heart do all the talking. Silently. Painfully.Peacefully.

Chased


He finally did it. Now Rruuuuuun!!!

recall the older post from the archive

This image reminded me of this one time, rather two times, I got chased by a dog. Both the incidents occurred in quick successions. I was around 11 years old wandering on the hill tops of Azad Kashmir during summer vacations. The first time I was leading my gang, jumping and humming away and all of a sudden, out of no where a wild stray white/ yellowish labore dog pounced off an intersection. Since I was the speedy me, I was quite ahead of my cousins in the walk. Being the nearest victim I was the target of attack. Gulp! So I ran, and I ran. I ran for my life towards my cousins. I ran my heart out, and that is one feeling I clearly remember. It felt as if my heart was in my mouth beating a zillion times a second. Thank God I didn't run in the opposite direction. The dog got scared of the crowd of my cousins and retreated.

The other time was perhaps a week after my first encounter. Just my luck! I was playing in a yard at one of our relatives place. On a corner, lied a big brown bushy dog. He looked extremely sad to me so I wanted to pat him to cheer him up. I tip toed towards him. When I was almost 4 meters away he got up and sat so I stopped. Ah, his big black poor sad eyes looking at me deeply. I took a step or two and extended my hand towards the dogee. The big black sad eyes became ferocious scary large eyes. This time I screamed first and sprinted like crazy again. My cousin and my brother were playing cricket in the lawn near by. My cousin took charge of the situation. It was his pet.

PHEW!

Emotionally Intelligent Anger

Anyone can become angry that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way: this is not easy.

Keep sailing

Your reason and your passion are the rudder and sails of your seafaring soul. If either be broken, you can but toss and drift or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas. For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining. And passion, unattended is a flame that burns to its own destruction.
[Khalil Gibran]

Don't let the obstacles on the way override you. Remember, you are bigger then your problems. As long as you keep going, you will sail through eventually. The rudder and the sails can be fixed; if you keep going, your reason and your passion will reinforce each other too.
