broken glass in anger

“Although you may spend your life killing, you will not exhaust all your foes.

But if you quell your own anger, your real enemy will be slain”

Nagarjuna

Easier said than done.

But one can try…try… and try.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Face the mask that masks the face-Monamy Chatterjee

Moon B & W

“Everyone is a moon and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody” Mark Twain

Which face you will wear today?

I am not talking of the personality disorder which we come across in the Medical World…..I am talking about the normal, perfect down to earth gentlemen and gentlelady, who invariably have two faces, sometimes many faces (multifaceted indeed!)

I am interested to know why we all have two faces one for ‘Public’ consumption and the other for ‘Private’ consumption.

“Everyone has two faces but often we see only one side of them, so never judge anyone by their looks, because, the truth might surprise you”! unknown

Have you any time seriously gazed at your soul?

I think we are all not just actors but great actors

A few simple examples…

1. You agree with me that wives hide (secrets) things from husbands, and husbands hide things from wives, but each will be talking to the other sweetly and kindly.

2. All Men talk differently when they are with wives, and when the wives are not around. (men there… ..you know what I mean ). I can’t talk on behalf of women.

3. We preach to our kids, but practice quite opposite. We lie to them on every possible occasion.

4. Young boys and girls as lovers, constantly lie to each other which suits the situation.

5. We shout at our children and wives for no fault of theirs, but show sweet faces to the boss, despite getting abused.

6. Married men, when they come across a single woman, try, to attract her attention, but when wives are with them…it is a different behaviour!

7. Our offline behaviour is in contrast to our online behaviour. You may be a beggar in real life, but on social media, you flaunt all your richness from nowhere!

8. You can see, Professional child kidnapper/killer is a dedicated father to his kids.

9. Your sweet talk entirely changes when you are fully drunk and all your hidden emotions come out in full play.

10. Between the friends…oh! less said better!

I can go on and on…..

We all wear masks.

Let us be frank. And that is the way of life!

And we have to live that life if we want to survive in this wretched world.

We all play these roles to get through each and every day.

Playing with God

And the worst part, you know…..even with God we play our duality!

“There’s a duality of a guy calling on God: ‘Where are you when I need you and, at the same time. ‘God helps those who help themselves.’…I think that contradiction does exist in all of us, those of faith and those who profess to have no faith.  ‘JoeCornahan’

Can we be checking our back all the time?

Now that we realized that all of us have two faces(dual personalities)….now it becomes even scarier.

“It’s not about who’s real to your face,

It’s about who’s real behind your back”   unknown

So be busy checking your back frequently!

What is my point?

It’s simple.

Why can’t we accept the fact everyone is faking everything at every possible situation and occasion? (almost daily)

The word ‘Honesty’ exists only in text books and in our daily talks and preaching.

Why then- ‘holier-than-thou attitude’?

Summary

Remember, there are two sides to every story. Kinda like your face!
Unknown

And wishing and praying that, let 2022 bring just the single and original face of ours all the time!

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Thursday Thoughts

“That’s life! Sometimes you’re on the horse’s back, and sometimes it’s the horse that’s on your back Marjane Satrap

How do you define life?

“Life is richer than poverty. Don’t let poverty give you another definition of life!

Life is better than torture. Don’t let torture give you another definition of life!

Life is more than problems. Don’t let problems give you another definition of life!

Life is more than despair. Don’t let despair give you another definition of life!

Life is more than lack. Don’t let lack give you another definition of life!

Life is richer than riches. Don’t let riches give you another definition of life!

Life is more than ‘wisdom’. Don’t let ‘wisdom’ give you another definition of life!

Life must be lived with hope. Don’t live life without hope and faith in God!

God is more than life. Don’t let life give you another definition of God!”

Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

My friend, what is your definition of life?

Can life be that simple as the above quote wishes us to be?

Everybody says that life offers us many choices and even opportunities

But who guides us to take the proper decision regarding the choices available?

This is a million-dollar question.

Sages go even one step further and declare that your life is a result of the choices you make.

“Choices are abundant, it is the right decision which is the rare one!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

The blame game goes to…

“Blame is a beautiful thing, baby. Blame keeps this whole planet spinning. You can point your finger at the next man, you can shift the weight onto him, you don’t have to carry that shit around yourself. You can slide into bed and get a good night’s nap. Yeah, right.

Narrator-Augustus Hill ( played by Harold Perrineau) from Oz tv series

Irrespective of whether you make choice or not, you are ready to blame others for all the misfortune that is befalling you.

You blame the time, you say that it’s a wrong choice on the wrong occasion on a wrong day.

If you happened to be an emotional person, hell descends on you!

My friend, don’t get disheartened

As Mehmet Murat ildan says in the above quote…making the right decision is a rare one.

You are not alone.

Most of us make wrong choices by taking wrong decisions. It’s the part of life and the way of life.

It is the only way you can learn from mistakes.

Of course, mistakes can be sometimes costly!

Let us not blame others for everything. Remember you made the choice and be bold enough to accept the outcome of your choice.

Depend on your gut feeling.

And God provides you yet another opportunity to pick up one of the other choices available.

But you must have patience

Do you know what patience is?

“Patience is the art of hoping” Luc de Clapiers

Patience for one day, one month, one year or years together, ultimately you get what is best for you.

Are you aware of the three’ C’ of life? 

They are the triplets whom we should never forget.

  1. Choices
  2. Chances
  3. Changes

Let us try to analyse further.

Choices

My topic started with the ‘Choices’ we make.

Choices determine how far you can go.

“Choose your love. Love your choice.” Thomas S. Monson

My friend, all of us start the day by making certain decisions and irrespective of whether the decision you made is going to be good or bad is not in your hands, but some outcome happens. Now is the time for you to choose from this outcome.

Now you are in a better position to make the choice that can take you near to your goals.

This is the choice I am talking about all the time.

“There comes a time in your life when you have to choose to turn the page, write another book or simply close it” Shannon L. Alder

Chances

Here one has to use wisely the choice selected.

My friend, the greatest risk you should avoid all the time is the risk of doing nothing.

And here is the point. Don’t depend on others to guide your destiny.

When life is generous enough to offer you choices, don’t hesitate to take a chance.

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make” Unknown

Changes

My friend, change is the way of life, all of us know this truth.

Never resist change once you decided about your choice and have taken a chance (irrespective of the outcome).

Be ready to welcome the change.

Remember Wu-Wei. Just flow with your life that happens once you have decided the ‘choice’ and the ‘chance’ you would love to take.

“Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes” Hugh Prather

Message

“The 3 C’s of Life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.” Zig Zigla 

 

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care my friend.

Which is the best thing in our life?

Such an easy question to answer!

I know my friend, each one of us can come with an answer.

The answer is well known, but sadly the majority of us are selfish.

Here is the answer.

“The best things in life are not things, it’s the people who make you feel loved and cared for” Unknown

Both ‘true love’ and ‘loving care’ are very very scarce.

Of course, money can never replace these two.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
