Be The Unsinkable


"O learned one! I can't go on like this. The world seems so unfair"

"No, it's not son. Everything happens for a reason. You grow. You end up being more mature"

"Is this the way you grow father? Is this the way you learn? Is there so much hurt and hearache involved? This pain is excruciating o learned one! I can't bear this any more. Love is not meant for me. I feel betrayed, used and cheated! I will never be able to trust anyone. I will never be able to live life. I will never ever know what being happy is all about. I hate this pathetic existence"

"A man who falls in his own eyes falls in the everyone's eyes. Please understand, my dear. Life is not a dead end. Its a never ending mine of lessons. Lessons to learn. Lessons to cherish. Lessons to realize. You never remember the pains in the long run. It's just the gains"

"It pains father. It really does. Every single memory of hers brings back that twitch. I will bleed to death if it goes on like this. If you have to go through this pain in parting, I would never ever be in a relationship! Oh..What have I become? I have changed. This is not me. I am not this soul less creature you see in front of you father. I used to breathe. I used to live. I only survive now. I am now filled with only pessimistic thougths. This pain has sucked all the joy from my system. I don't have any reason to be joyful! You say I am growing in the process. Is growing up always this painful father?"

"This pain has nothing to do with your growing child. Neither it has to do with the process of your learning. This pain is all because of the false expectations you had built. This pain is all because of the realization. It's this realization that helps you grow. It's this realization that transforms you. It's this realization that helps you become a mature individual. If there are so many gains at the cost of a momentary pain, is not that desirable my child? Does not a kid who has just learnt to walk fall down a thousand times before mastering the art of balancing the body on their legs? The joy of walking those first steps overshadows the pain inflicted by the fall on the body. Does not a sailing boat manage to reach its destination despite winds being unfavorable? The joy of your sail withstanding the storm and pulling through overshadows the pain inflicted by the weather on the sail. Does a kite ever rise with the wind? It always rises against it. It's more painful to fight the powerful winds against you. The joy of flying and touching the sky overshadows the pain inflicted on the body of the kite.

Your heart is no different from all of these. It flutters feverishly with emotions. It blindly follows the one who gives it some love. It starts expecting and clinging desperately to that special one despite the knowledge and mutual acknowledgement that things won't work between them. The castles built in thin air come crashing down, causing pain and heartache. But ask yourself, what did you gain in the process? What did you learn in the process? Why did God not be kind on you and grant you this one wish of patching up with that someone? You gained understanding in the process. You learned that love is not forced, ever! You found out the benevolence of god in showing you the path before it got too late. You got to know that he considers you the best and has reserved the best for you. You acknowledged that your soulmate is for real and the day when you are with her is not far. You realized that the river would ultimately find it's way to the sea, no matter the obstructions. Nothing can make the river change its course and if it has to, it will dry out. You are the sea. Wait patiently for that river. Sometimes it may take a day. Sometimes an eternity. But it is the rivers destiny to reach the sea and reach it would for sure. The joy of this wait overshadows the pain inflicted by the realization. It was never meant to be. And what is meant to be, will never leave you hurt.

Happiness never comes with a "* Conditions apply" tag!! And if it does, it was never happiness. And if you considered it as one, now you know to differentiate. Life is a lesson. The pain of an impending death is overshadowed by the joy of unravelling the mysteries of life. Take the spade and jump in. Who knows what you may strike up on? Life is too short to look back and repent at your mistakes. Life is to be lived only one way.....celebrating this gift! :-) "

beautiful beautiful!

i am loving the one liners:

A man who falls in his own eyes falls in the everyone's eyes,

wah wah, subhanALlah

You never remember the pains in the long run. It's just the gains"


and bech mai you infused humor too :P sadist though, i agree: his pain has sucked all the joy from my system.


hehe!

but all worth it :) I loved the way you treated every emotion as a derivation of pain. Joy is born in the womb of suffering (hah! my one liner!)

and the fact that the river's destiny is to reach the sea. On that Jibran says something like that:

Agar darya ko pata chal jaye ke hum sabar ka matlab kya samajh baithay hain ty becha rastay himat har day (aur samandar say kabhi na milay)

meaning ke sabar tu uska huta hay na, the way it keeps flowing cm by cm...


beautiful write,
and it really came the time it was needed the most :)

thankyou guru!
aysay hi tu thodi na ap guru hain :)

Amazing work!! I play this same tape over and over again in front of many of my friends, but they render it with nothing but deaf ears. Wish there were more people who genuinely listened and followed something as beautiful as this :)

You have a new follower now Big B!

** Happiness never comes with a "* Conditions apply" tag!!
- How true. It is all about how *we* *choose* to look at things...

** Life is a lesson.
- Hmmm... I'd rather say life is the *best* teacher; the exam comes first. And then, the lesson.

Plain awesome, dude. Keep writing. Spread the voice.

Peace.
