Let the world know!
A world getting crowded up with materialistic wows each passing day but losing the true spirit of human nature and peacefulness.
What it is we are running after? A question we must ask ourselves every now and then because it can give us an insight about our own self.
I read this simple but amazing piece of thoughts at Kate’s blog about surviving or thriving in today’s world, which can be used as a set of good reminders about our own self, about what we do everyday and for what purpose.
Read it out below!
Is life busy but still a breeze
or just surviving with ill ease
Addicted to devices
Chasing desires and vices
Keeping up with trends
Catching up with friends
Botox to lips or face
World flying by at a rapid pace
Duties, commitments galore
Never satisfied, looking for that flaw
Fear and insecurities abound
Need constant entertainment around
Pause and reflect
to see what it is that you neglect
Living is much more than survival
Breath out, give calm a revival
Daily Prompt: Survive
So far away but yet so close!
Life surely zips very fast down the lane!
Do you really need what the world is longing for?
Are you worthy enough to possess what many can only dream about?
It is good to ask such questions with our own selves from time to time. There are countless souls in this very world without the basic necessities of life, for whom every new day is like a grueling marathon with never-ending obstacles on its path.
I do feel highly blessed for not being one of them and for this, I say do thanks to THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH every day for providing me with not only what I didn’t asked for but also with what I honestly believe ain’t eligible for.
A gigantic blessings comparison I read today on Calm Kate’s blog, which struck my heart. You should read it too:
I have food in the fridge, clothes to wear and a sheltered safe place to live …
so I am richer than 75% of our world
I have money in the bank and some in my purse with spare change around …
that puts me among the top 8% of the wealthy
I woke up this morning more healthy than sick …
I am more blessed than the millions who will not survive this week
I have never experienced the horrors of war, the degradation of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of real starvation …
so I am well ahead of 500 million people in our world
I can pursue spiritual practice of my own choice without fear of arrest, torture or death; those that harass are ignorant …
so I’m more blessed than three billion others!

It’s good to see the green!
Off all the colors
You can pick and hold
The wonders are always big
On the canvas above our heads
What we runs after in our life explains a lot about who we really are. While many we know do have their own priorities and goals, when it comes to our own selves, we should be doing what is best for us.
The world we live in loves to persuade us into materialism through different ways but once you have set up your own vision and goal clearly, there will be no diversion in achieving what you want to achieve.
Read out this lovely piece by Calm Kate about what is more important to us than what we do consider important.
Do you have to have this and that
Work to renew those devices
Wear the right clothes
Drive the right car
Have the perfect home
Has this made you perfectly
Happy content and satisfied?
If not then shed the unnecessary
Cull back to the bare essentials
Change your attitude and focus
Sort your values, set priorities
Know yourself to find freedom
This brings me genuine happiness
Contentment and real satisfaction
Without trying the alternative
And checking societal norms
You are blindly led down the
Throw away materialistic abyss
Save yourself now to live joyfully
Do you want to be happy
Content and satisfied?
Or are you prepared to waste this life
Slave to your every wilful desire
Chasing a never ending quagmire
Of elusive worldly accumulation
Distracting you from inner peace
You are very precious so please
Be happy content and satisfied
