Success is the result of our genuine talent, sincere effort and strong decision to not give up before we achieve our goal. Yes. But then how is it that only few succeed while many do not, despite of the talent, effort and determination?
We do reflect- oh the timing was not right, or some stroke of bad luck...etc.
I feel above and beyond the obvious, there are four more things- our success is attained as it is:
First, God is answering someone else's prayer.
Two, our success is fruit of our ripened past good karma.
Three, our success is a blessing recieved.
Four, our success is pre determined, our path calls us, as we are chosen to be instrumental in accomplishing larger designs for the larger good.
So is our success something to be proud of, or not? I think actually it is better to keep our grace and have a gratitude-filled heart towards a universal supreme energy and understand our success as a rich and truly humbling experience when we count how many people indirectly or directly helped us get this success, get us here. So ours, is then, the role of an instrument and to be chosen as an instrument we may feel gratitude, exercise detachment and show affection. We must do what we do to feel alive with excitement while doing our work, feel alive with joy when we accomplish, live in that moment fully and then detach and move on to something different and new- for a rolling stone gathers no moss, and well, we cannot cling to one success forever just like we cannot keep on eating sugar forever!
Taste success, devour it, savour it, then 'gargle' with humbleness and gratitude, cleaning your mind, heart and soul and keep moving on...
Poetry is born when the heart and intellect meet and converse and reflect together.
Poetry is a moment of awareness, a moment of realisation, an insight into being alive and experiencing with the heart; therefore poetry is heartfelt. The poet's sensitivities are heightened towards the occurrence and the experience.
Poetry is inspirational, and also powerful due to the wisdom it carries within its imagery, mood, ethos and pathos.
Poetry is all this, and much more.
Writing poetry is as much a spiritually elevating experience as reading poetry.
To read poetry is to peep into a universally experienced humane moment of life once more, from a different angle and a different point of view-and absorbing the poet's refreshing way of looking at the world.
Reading poetry is therefore at once engaging, elevating, and an intellectual and emotional experience.
