A human being has never managed to stay too far from the darkness. What we really have to fight for is the light. The day brings you light, the night brings you darkness.
Having your hands cover your eyes drags you into darkness in a second. But reaching light with your eyes closed demands the greatest discipline. The kind of discipline only found in a monk. The ever so enlightened monks – who fear nothing, who have mastered not to show any reactions to the behavior and acts of those who surround them. Letting go the urge of reacting to something can lead us all closer to that inner and ever so shining light.
Unfortunately we are not monks. Pity how we do not bother to practice any such discipline. We are sadly mistaken simple people, who is rightfully referred as “human being”, who has never managed to stay too far from the darkness.
Spreading the lightness has truly proved to be the hardest task. But there is a sign of hope I find in Andy Williams “Impossible Dream”
And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star.
There was a time when I would write a blog here after skipping a few days, and feel like “Yes, I am back”. But now, after having to update 4 different blogs publishing writings of different genres, trying to find what genre of writing I can swim into without having a fear of sinking some day, it is tough to keep track of it all.
Good thing among all of this is the battle to keep writing continues. It only tells me that I haven’t given up yet. I haven’t given up after the disappointments from many of my friends who said are waiting to read “Get Inspired Get Thinking” book but have never bothered even downloading it for a dollar. On the other hand, there was a hope given from all the strangers who continue to send me positive feedback through blogs or e-mails.
For the same I must continue trying. This one is for all those, who are forever hopeful to reach the light or die trying.
