Alas, man does not know what is good for him. He seeks only pleasures of the senses and, being deluded, does not realise that in seeking in these passing pleasures comes great grief.
Human birth is a blessed birth. Man must not run after the pleasures of the senses and be deluded.
When man is attached by the things of this world, and seeking pleasures, pursues them, he suffers delusion and engage in every kind of evil.
Man is the divine self. It is evil deeds that cause his identification with the physical body. Therefore he must desist from all evil.
Man experiences suffering, misery, and death, all caused by ignorance untill he wakes up seeks the divine truth.
Deeds attached to the m...
'Moments That Made My Soul Happy'
I remember, watching my love leaving forever,
I wept like a child who just lost his air balloon,
Watching this balloon leaving forever, sad face,
Having tears in my eyes, i learned acceptance.
When i was battling with inner self and depression,
When my friends started behaving strangely around me,
All alone, surrounded by emptiness, i practiced patience.
When a shy women approached me,
But was too shy to come over and tell her feelings,
Remembering my own nervous days
and knowing how does it feels like,
To that shy women, I learned to show compassion.
When finally i realized that i have no control
over people who misunderstand or misqu...
Keep switching people in search of perfection. Keep making new alter egos again and again and crave for new excitements. Meet someone new and start loosing interest in those who once were perfection in your eyes. All of a sudden, you will find their imperfection becomes an excuse. You will find yourself blaming old ones for not being original. And within blink of an eye you will find yourself making loyalty promise to this new person who is now have your stamp of new adventure. That's not loyalty. Loyalty lies with old ones. That old alter ego never changed. You craved for temptation of new excitement. And that's the time when loyalty become irrelevant for you. That's not loyalty. That's some...

"IN MY WORLD"
In my world, you just see,
what it's like, to be me,
Come closer, enter my soul,
Let me show you picture whole.
Feel your pain, do feel mine,
Go inside my artistry mind,

My creativity is the sky and I'm on the cloud
When my words comes out as the lasers fly
Heaven feels touched and the ...
Hey Dear! Yes you. Yes, I'm writing this letter for you.
You have seen so many things in life. Right?
Remember? You've been through so much trouble. So much pain. So much anxiety. You've suffered a lot.
Remember? There was a time when you've been criticized . You've been through those phases where you saw yourself rejected. There was a time when you lost your close one. There was a time when you was surrounded by emptiness. No hope. No ray of light.
Ah! So much pain you have seen.
Even today, you are down with something. Something that is killing you from inside. You are facing problems. Again sufferings, pain & anxiety is playing their role. Emptiness is all over the place ...
"A Hopeless Soul And Naked Heart"
Wake up in solitude, had a nightmare of memories full of fortitude,
Now, like always habitude, feeling quite Inaptitude.
I know, I’ll never get a chance again to come back to you.
It kills me when i think what if I would’ve made it through.
I think about the things I never had said to you,
And hey, all the love i felt and emotions too,
I'd never get to make it right, deep down inside I always knew,
My love, can i skip apologies and ask you to forgive me with your gratitude?!
I still love you, that'll never change.
Will it change? It will not. I do know, ah! wish there wasn't any pain.
Think about you every day,
I just c...

Make Yourself A Brand:
I've read plenty of letters here. Liked them. All are motivating and inspiring but lacks practical solution. I know people needs motivation but what is the essence of motivation if there is no meaningful solution attached to it.
So, this time i choose to write on the topic of BRANDING! I won't talk about Love, Stars, Universe etc. They are big people. Very big people. I would say GIANT PEOPLE! We need something grounded now. Something that we can follow in our daily life.
(Sorry, if i hurt your sentiments here. A big apology)
So, Here we go!
You need motivation right? Something inspiring? You need a solution in your life. Don't spend time on reading un...
A Little Stubborn Man Inside You:
In this letter i'm introducing a very unusual person about whom you never heard of. He is a person who controls your life.
He is inside you. Even right now he is reading this letter too.
He is a "little stubborn man" who is inside your mind sitting behind the curtains controlling your every single move. Don't be surprised.
He plans things for you. Sometimes you think you are not a free person. Someone is controlling your life. Whatever you plan to do, most of the time you see rejections and then you curse your life. Right? This thing happens with everyone.
But you know, in reality he is the one behind everything who says "A Big No" to your ...
This is a little story of caterpillars.
Caterpillars, they're just scooping along, right? Being caterpillars, at some point, some cells show up, called imaginal cells. Scientists don't know where they come from or why they appear. These imaginal cells just show up inside the caterpillar and you know what they say?
"Get psyched, caterpillar! It's butterfly-turning-into time!"
And what do all the other caterpillars do once these imaginal cells show up?
I know, you've have no idea. Let me tell you,
They attack 'em! Try to kill 'em! They're, like:
"Screw you, imaginal cells. We're happy being a caterpillar. Get lost!"
But eventually, the...
A Thought I Had In Mind.
Recently, I completed my second year of traning, so i posted a status on my profile that I'm having a tough time these days. I have to work all day and study all night and within hours i received so many comments. The strange thing was they all were common. Everyone said,
"Don't worry, your hard work will pay you off. You will succeed in life. It's just not your time".
And i was like , thanks for kind wishes but how do you know? Have you lived your whole life? Have you already seen both success and failure? How can you be so sure?
And suddenly it clicked to my mind and i asked myself, are they really wise and mature enough to say that? Or is this just...
I can't tell you in life how many birthday's I've missed. "How many birthday parties of the year" i didn't make it to. How many times i was leaving my office while my friends were leaving the club.
If you want to be successful, you have to dedicate every part of your mind, body and heart to it. You always have to be the hardest worker in the room and be willing to sacrifice short-term pleasures for long term goals.
Focus on yourself. On your dreams. Every day, every moment ask yourself "Is what i'm doing right now getting me one step closer o where i want to be in life?"
Unless you're exactly where you want to be , right now it's time to focus on building a better ve...
A story about a Girl Who Believed in destiny:
The first time I saw him, I was 21 and attending a reading by poet P.K. Page at the University of Victoria. I tried to keep my mind on the reading but I kept feeling a strange pull from a few rows behind me. Finally I turned and looked. Sitting there was a young man with longish black hair and soulful blue eyes, wearing a scruffy poetic hat and a Calvin Klein sweater with holes in it.
I was alone at the reading and self-conscious amongst the literary elite, some of whom I had read and admired. I wanted to be unobtrusive but I couldn’t help turning to steal glances at him. He looked like a poet, with shadows under his eyes and a kind of serene m...
Sometimes you just need to realize that Love isn't about having possession. You just need to realize its meaning. Take little pain. Feel broken for a while. But in the end just let it go.
Because sometimes love means taking a step back. If you care about somebody you should want them to be happy. Even if you wind up being left out. :)
people facing rough time;
Have you ever noticed that you spend most of your time in regrets? You spend most of your time in thinking about others life? You spend most of the time on living someone else life?
You spend most of your time on making yourself down and worthless. You feel inferior to others. You want to close yourself in a room forever. Well, Its enough. No more of those things.
Take a step back. You're human. You are beautiful. You are so beautiful & you can be anything. Don't hate because someone broke your heart or because your parents split or because your best friend betrayed you or because the kid down the street called you fat, ugly, stupid or worthless. Cry when you...
To Book Readers,
Sometimes you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. And then there are books like an imperial affliction, which you can't tell people about, books so special and rare and yours that advertising your affection feels like betrayal.
Give It Time.
Everything we go through so young in life is all about waiting for the person who we are suppose to spend the rest of our lives with. And the bigger picture is every single mistake we make, person we encounter, and every hardship we go though brings us exactly where we are supposed to be.
Every person, including me, in the world hates waiting. It is usually because we think all our friends are happy, in love, and have everything on the world going for them. But the truth is that they probably don't really have as much as we think and that everyone has something they did like to change or are so waiting for. Some people are waiting for that guy to message them first, someone ...
