An Open Letter To The Lord

I will never give up

Dear Lord,

We know that life is not always fair and pleasant but it’s still darn good. There are no instructions how to go about it but it’s okay. We all wake up each day to face the battle in this insular world, anyway. There are mornings when we get up, thinking that maybe life will not go the way we dreamed it. There are nights that we thought life is too much to bear. Many times, we failed and few times, we survived but it’s alright.

Life has been full of sufferings and pains but we survived because  we learned how to stay strong through your guidance. Sometimes, life made us feel so lost and not sure where we are heading to. At times, we feel tired and disheartened and wonder if we should have even started the journey in the first place. There are no sure direction of the way because the map is not well- defined.

There are times we are looking for happiness and at times, we think life is unfair. We may  readily agree with the statement that all men are equal. But we don’t have to live long before discovering that life treats some people better than us or others. Some people work so hard and remain poor while others are born to wealth or seem to get all the breaks. Some people enjoy good health, others don’t. Some people are begging for just a piece of bread to live. But this is something we have to understand and accept without resentment. When we look at others and see the unfairness of life, please teach us to always, always change our focus.

It’s true happiness is so elusive. Some of us always come to the world crying. They said being happy is the simplest thing in the world but that’s a lie. It’s hard for us to be  happy and we often wonder why. We spent too much time begging for something and it torments us that we have never received what we were begging for. There are people who are so cruel breaking our hearts into pieces. People often squeezed us like lemons and we go through an excruciating pain. People are endlessly hurting us but please teach us to include them in our prayers each night when we rest our head on our pillows. We don’t know what tomorrow may bring, teach us to forgive and  never, ever hold negative feelings in our hearts for too long.

Let us always remember that there is nothing permanent in this world. There is nothing precise. That what we have learned from the books we read each day is emotional. Love is not always easy, we know that. We cannot always make someone love us. But we will try to be the one who can be loved, in any way.

In this world where callous thoughtfulness and selfish indifference are all too common, teach us how to be more and more compassionate to others in a sense that could make our lives wonderful especially when motivated with your love. Let us find solace in our shortcomings when we look at them through the lens of self-acceptance. We need your guidance and strength. We know that  we are under your powerful hands, show us your unfailing love each day that we may enjoy the moments of great joy and unimaginable sweetness of life. Give us your peace in the midst of our difficulties. Stretch our patience to enlarge our soul. Lord, give us a task we enjoy or a person whose company we love and could make time irrelevant.

We know that this journey of our lives requires strength, perseverance and inevitable struggles along the way, both within and without. For as long as we have your unfailing love for us, we will never give up no matter what.We will continue for a good fight.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism: The Psychological Motivations Behind Retail Therapy

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood? Clinical psychologist Scott Bea, PsyD, affirms that shopping can have psychological and therapeutic benefits as long as it is done in moderation, according to research. Engaging in shopping activities, whether online or in person, can provide a psychological and emotional boost. Even just browsing can bring happiness, but it’s important to be mindful of your spending habits. Dr. Bea outlines various explanations for the phenomenon.

Shopping helps to regain a feeling of power or authority

Research demonstrates that engaging in shopping activities can help individuals feel more in control of their

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

I will never give up

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

I will never give up

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.
