Dedicated to all the employed ones :p
We eat the same food,
We earn the same money,
We travel the same places but still…
Your plate is bigger than mine,
Your face is brighter than mine,
Maybe your job is better than mine.
I work the code all day,
You just make a few clicks,
My time ends in sway,
You’re making crosses and ticks,
Seems like I’m the one who’s stuck,
I’m the only one,
Who needs a better job,
That satisfies me a ton.
Still your plate is bigger than mine,
Maybe your work is relaxing than mine,
How do I get the same,
The rest, the work so lame,
That earns me the same money,
Makes my life pleasant and sunny.
Ask your boss to give me a chance,
Tell him I’m interested in such motionless dance,
Praise a little, mould a little,
Let me see your world at a glance,
I, too, need a bigger plate,
Where work is done on an invisible slate,
Bring me the papers I need to sign,
As I’m not happy with this work of mine,
Because your plate is still bigger than mine.
Why are we here? We all may have different answers or no answer at all! It is said that there are two most important days in in our life, one, the day we were born and second, the day we realize why we were born! Each one of us has some goal we are born with. However weird it may sound, it’s ours! And we work our entire life to reach that goal. Though there are hurdles on the way, but the one who has no fear for the situation and the consequences, is the one tagged with “success”. We are here not just for living as if passing each day and being thankful to ourselves and others for assisting us in making it a day not too long for boredom. We are all here for some higher purpose and obviously this purpose is not ‘counting the hours and passing the days’. To know our purpose, we think, and then act accordingly and if it suits our interest, we believe we are on the right path. But, is that it? Is this how we come to know what we need?
Well, if we expand a little (in consciousness), we’ll find a remarkable way to uncover the mystery in the book of our goals. Any path that leads us to our happiness and our happiness alone is not the right path. Just because we feel happy about walking along that path, doesn’t make it right. The path we have chosen must not interfere with the happiness of others. For example, if I like playing guitar when I am in a melodious mood, but the surroundings are disturbed by activity, then what should I do? Should I stop playing? But that would mean sacrificing my own happiness for the sake of others well-being and comfort. What to do then? Simply, change the situation; alter the whole scenario. How? Close the door! If not possible, then play somewhere else where there’s no one to be annoyed by the music. Need more alternatives? OK. What about involving others too in the activity! Or the most weird, difficult or whatever you may call it, “change the activity”! By that, I didn’t mean to stop playing. What about me being involved in what others are doing rather than expecting them not to be disturbed! Difficult? Weird? Nonsense? Yes. It may be! But this is where I would like to establish the base of my statement.
Do what you like, but don’t let your actions spoil others’ fun!
When changing the situation doesn’t work, why not change to the situation! Sometimes, things may seem out of control. What do we do then? It seems we can’t control the situation anymore, so wouldn’t it be better if we change to the situation! Well, that needs courage and fearlessness, but that is what will make us more adaptive to the surrounding world. And that is what will eventually lead us to our goal. Try it! We all have heard the famous quote, “Change is the law of nature”, and that’s completely valid and true. But change what or who? That depends entirely on our choice.
The greatest joy of life lies inside all of us and is not associated or attached to any material thing outside that is available in the external world in the form of THINGS. We are grown up using things, such as mobiles, TV screens, iPhones, Tablets, music players, cool gadgets, accessories and many many more. Each one of us develops different types ofhabits, and if the habits are same, then the style turns out to be different. The question is, whether going to a lovely looking place or feeling like stuck in a wrong place is really someone else’s fault, or simply a twist of situations? Well, the answer is NONE. Wherever you go, carry your home not WITH you but WITHIN you!
If you think that you are stuck in wrong place and everything around seems boring to you, then it’s not the place or the situation to blame, but it’s YOU! The home that makes you happy is not made of things you possess or things you wish to buy but the real home liesinside you; it’s a home that is made of inner peace, inner joy and happiness which in turn comes from inner satisfaction. If you are not satisfied internally, you will start blaming thesurroundings or people for the same. Always do what makes you happy; just don’t thinktoo much about it. You like hanging out with friends; simply do it, and don’t think about it. You love watching movies; go for it, don’t think about it. The world is weird, and you are not the only one who’s crazy here! Show your craziness to the world; the ones, who’ll like your craziness, will stay with you, and for you!
