Intention Creates the Destiny by Munia Khan
In a world of 7.7 Billion people, how can we expect to be in complete happiness, if we don’t try to create a peaceful environment? Not an easy task, of course; but not impossible. If we have no control over our environmental surroundings, no need to be frustrated; at least we can and we should have control on our mind.
In order to stay in peacefulness, we have to be optimistic hoping that ultimately good must prevail over the evil…sooner or later. We have nothing to lose if we stay under affirmative influences and try to view things positively. But think about how much of a loser we would be, if we choose to live in darkness embracing all the negativity of the world!
We need to remember that we cannot escape from getting older and the earth we live in is aging too as 4.5 billion years ago it was formed. So, in this ephemeral life there is no point of living in sadness or in total despair.
Know that if you allow coldness to engulf you before winter, season is helpless to help you. Therefore, my idea is to create your own spring in your mind for the whole year through. And ‘learning’ works like a magical spell that can never be broken as far as inner capacity building is concerned.
We have to learn to learn good things from various incidents and objects in our surroundings, even from our daily life. Our world is a teacher itself and it depends on you, how great and obedient a student you are to learn the helpful lessons from it. From the immensity of the galactic life in outer space to the tiny tunnel of a badger’s den- great lessons are concealed everywhere, only if we have the constructive intention to extract it.
The amazing face of the motherly mammal of a seal near the oceanic shore has more honesty to offer to our world than the unreliable feature of a two-faced politician. There is nothing to be ashamed to learn to gather simplicity from a lovely grasshopper which has the wonderful ability to mingle with the greenness. We can find more serenity in life by befriending trees who never cease to be by our side.
For the sake of living a better life, we must not underrate people’s inner ability. (And here ‘people’ refer to us, ourselves as well). I look at it this way- wings are of many kinds: butterfly's wings, vulture's wings, eagle-wings, spread wings of white swans, dragonfly's transparent wings, wings of albatross, beautiful wings of humming birds, tiny wings of a fly or a bumble-bee-wings; and when they fly, they fly their best according to their ability of flying. We should not underestimate the size of those heavenly wings. Similarly, we should never fail to appreciate people’s proficiency- no matter how little the degree of competence appears to be. In today’s competitive world of hardship, we need to inspire each other to be inspired by each other.
Our body could be in error falling ill, we can have clash of culture, we can suffer from social injustice and racial conflict, our days could be sick and tired of living, but we have our mind and soul within us as our greatest possession on which we can rely on if we can be strong and determined enough mentally to overcome the adversities and tribulations of life. We can learn to attain that positive capacity of mental power.
Moments are extremely valuable. We must learn to savor some moments to let time feel worth existing. Clouds form in our life’s sky and if sunlight fails to pass through them, they get darker and darker as the droplets of misery become frozen. We should be always aware to let the sunlight of goodness shine upon our lives. Or else indeed dark clouds will keep on forming, aiming to develop a stormy weather of misfortune.
We need to be enlisted in the group of like-minded people filled with optimism because positive people find encouragement within themselves as they are mostly experts in developing their psychological resilience constantly. Gratefulness, acceptance and adaptability within them always lift up their inner motives.
We must never feel purposeless in life, even when we suffer from different kinds of brokenheartedness; rather we should know that sometimes a broken heart can mend something else's brokenness.
Our good intentions will certainly create a better future. Always remember that life is the music of our souls; all we need to do is to listen hard so that we can sing along with the tune in a peaceful way.
