The Truth Of Dreams

The Truth Of Dreams:

Hold fast to dreams,for if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird,that can not fly.”

                                                                                                              (Langstone Hughes)

Dreams are the most crucial part of life. Everybody has dreams without knowing the reason behind their occurrence. This is an involuntary phenomenon. Usually, we have dreams when we get sleep, but sometimes we have dreams with our widely opened eyes.
Dreams can be freaky, prophetic, adventurous,sensational and nightmares. Some dreams provide relief and solution to our problems; on the other hand,some dreams can be extremely tormented. Tormented dreams aggravate tension and cause insomnia. What we suppress during the day becomes our dream. Dreams are, in fact, the language of our suppressed aspirations and fears. Dreams reflect our ambitions and make us more determined and contemplated. Dreaming is totally a mental process and is proved to be a true interpreter of ourselves. Great dreams bring great achievements and remarkable success in our lives and make us exemplary and everlasting. These help us in achieving out of reach things. Orison Swett Marden has said:

“All men who have achieved great things,have been great dreamers”

Dreams Increase Wisdom:

Dreams increase wisdom and arise curiosity. Man is normally in the habit of committing mistakes and this all is quite natural. But when we do something wrong the voice of our conscience turned into our dreams, which does not let us to sleep. In this way,we look back and analyze our mistakes or deeds and then our curiousity leads us towards something new and constructive. We become the wisest people, when we are having great dreams and are adamant to meet them. Dreams infuse unique thinkings in us. We have to confront a lot of problems and dreams provide us sensible solution to these problems. Eleanor Roosevelt has rightly said:

                     “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”

Dreams enhance our reasoning level because while dreaming our mind is constantly working. In this process,we are seeing those things that we want to do or to get and in dreams we try to seek  those methodologies and techniques by which we can acquire them. This mental working increase our wisdom and make us more genius.

Dreams Are An Escape from Reality:

Reality is always bitter and painful and this is human nature to shun reality or to avoid it at all costs. In this case our dreams work as defense mechanism, they allow the mind to go to anywhere it desires. In dreams we see whatever we want to see. Dreaming is always a pleasant sensation, but it can also be rough in some cases. Dreams are not physical and exist only in our minds and these are a good source to shun reality in order to live happily. Things become as we think about them, this all depends upon our observation and perception. According to L.M Montgomery:

                                               “You may tire of reality but you never tire of dreams”

Death is a great reality of life and we all feel frightened when we think about it. We see death with great terror and it affects us badly. Therefore, we often see in dreams earthquakes, famine diseases, lightening or thundering and enormous storms that have engulfed countless lives. Our financial and social issues also haunt us in our dreams. But sometimes dreams embellish our life with great beauty and satisfaction. We feel ourselves in a fairy land and, we see beautiful lakes, oceans, waterfalls and greenery. We see that we are living in a castle and are having many slaves. Sometimes even we become king and get remarkable happiness. We forget all sorrows and cares of our real life and our imaginary world seem to us our most beautiful possession. In this imaginary world we get rid prison of this cruel world for a while and become rulers of our own realm. In sensational dreams everything looks rather different and more appealing. We feel ourselves flying in the air and doing outstanding things.

In dreams we can say each and everything that in real life we can never say. Dreams are actually the expression of our thoughts and feelings. Sometimes we love a person fiercely and we can never express it, but this expression of love is quite easy in dreams. In dreamy world we tell our dear ones that how much we love them and what we think about them. It has widely been observed that this expression of love is pretty difficult in real life. Therefore,it will not be wrong to say that dreams reduce the torture of reality and bring happiness to us.

              “Dreams are illustrations….from the book,your soul is writing about you”

Dreams Provide Relief To Stress:

Life is full of hustle and bustle, furry and demands. External circumstances cause stress and this stress is usually known an overwhelming response to events and happenings. It upsets the balance of a person and makes life chaotic. Today we have to do many activities at the same time. We have to think about our financial problems,we get worried about our next promotion. We have to bear the brunt of our boss. Sometimes we can not achieve our well-deserved career goals. Dreams are the best substitute of this stress. Dreams decrease the pain of our expectations and thinkings or build positivity in us. Diseases afflict many people and become a major cause of life stress for them. Family disputes, attitudes of relatives, studies and poor health conditions are also irritative. We get tensed and depressed, this depression ultimately turned into dream. We suppose many beautiful things by ourselves. Dreams are actually a fight between our conscious and subconscious. They increase our self-knowledge and provide us information or insight.

All our worries fade away in our dreamy world. In this world we can shed tears without any fear, we can smile or express ourselves freely and we can get whatever we want. In fact, in dreams we have everything of our choice around us, and we mostly feel ourselves very satisfied and happy. Dreams do not let stress to get on our nerves or get us down. High and positive dreams can be the best solution of releasing tension.

To sum up the whole discussion, I would like to say that we all our slaves of our dreams because these are the true portrayal of our thinking and wishes. These become the voice of our suppressed desires and compelled us to go head. Dreams bind the whole humanity together, because everyone has dreams without any distinction. We do not have any control over this phenomenon. Our dreams are our driving force that pushes us to express ourselves. I have a firm belief that in this cruel world dreams provide a great soothing relief and urge a man to think about bright future. Nightmares are also proved constructive because they increase our curiousity and give us a remarkable courage for exploring and investigating the truths of life. And they provide knowledge about an invisible world and make it visible beautifully to us. Prophetic dreams deal with spiritual sphere of our life and enhance it incredibly. Adventurous dreams bring calm and excitement in our life. On the whole we can say that dreams are our best friends because they deal with each and every secret of our life

                                         “Dreams are like stars…..you may never touch them

                                         But if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny”

A Man Can Avert His Own Destiny

A Man Can Avert His Own Destiny:

“Each man is the smith of his own fortune” (Appius Claudius)

This is a well-known saying of Roman Philosopher that shows that man is an architect of his own destination.Destiny is a quite colloquial term to all of us, that is usually defined as predetermined fate or an invincible necessity.It is true that the concept of predestination is right,but having blind belief in predetermination of things is futile and obnoxious. And this belief often causes the destruction of a man. This predestination of things is actually a test of man’s capabilities set by the Divine Power because he has granted this creature of universe with outstanding qualities. He has the stamina to face and avert every calamity. This is the beauty of destination that a man has to prove himself for its achievement. Those who have the fear of losing,do lose.Fortune is nothing in itself, this is only what a man does. A man can definitely avert his destiny, if he has an iron will; because his adamant determination can make his fortune bright. Destiny always bows itself before strong and brave people. Strength is not measured by physique, but by personal ethics and honesty, therefore, it is better to endure than to give up. Henry Miller has rightly said:

“We create our fate everyday we live”

There are certain factors that can help a person in averting his destination. These are as follows;

Firm Resolution Of A Person:

Firm resolution is considered a magical key in diverting the destiny of a man. The wavering condition of man and getting puzzled while taking decisions brings destruction of a person. The need is that he should set goals for himself and then stick to them. When he is having strong belief,nothing will hinder his success. Helen Keller has said:

   “Keep your face to the sunshine

                                                         And you can not see a shadow”

One must be optimistic. If failure comes,instead of losing heart he should go ahead;he should go ahead. Failure is like a ladder for going to height. One has to slip many times before reaching to destination. Sometimes a stage come when a person just want to give up the task, but it is his firm resolution that keeps him going. It makes him relentless urges him for doing work over day and night. There is a beautiful quote by Oprah Winfrey in this regard

“So go ahead

                Fall down.

                               The world looks different from the ground”

Hard Work:

It is said that “hard work is a key to success”. It plays a vital role in shaping the destination of a man. Those who sit idle and wait for happening of some miracle, always destroyed. Man is prone to make mistakes, he does wrong and blames his fortune. And these mistakes spoils his destiny in his later life. No one can undermine the role of hard work in shaping one’s bright destiny. Some people belong to ordinary families, they are not born with a golden spoon in their mouth. But a day comes, when they shine like bright stars because they make sensible use of their physical and mental capabilities. They do not get bother about their family background, their passion becomes their destination. We have many examples of such great people in history as well as in present age. These people worked over day and night and got an everlasting merit. For instance, Napoleon was an ordinary general but he built up an ideal empire in his life because he was a man of great vision and an ambitious person. Dr. Johnson became the greatest intellectual of his day through hard work. Similarly Newton used to forget even his meal, when he was working on a problem. His devotion and hard work made him the great mathematician of the world. Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a lawyer by profession, but he proved himself as an exemplary leader.

Today Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are the greatest examples of successful persons, who have shaped their destiny according to their own will. Ralph Waldo Emerson has said;

“They   can conquer who believe they can”

Therefore, a man who does work hard finds the solution of all difficulties. He never feels downcast in failure rather his failures make him more strong, devoted and persistent. Consequently, he achieved his desired success because he always labours hard with consistency. He never looks at the close doors. According to Alexander Graham Bell;

When one door closes another door opens;

                  But we so often look so long and regretfully

upon the closed-door,

                                                        That we do not see the  ones which are open for us”

And our this type of attitude really spoils destination.One can avert his destiny when he struggles hard and tries to find new ways and sources for solving problems.

Proper Division Of Time:

Proper division of time is very essential for shaping a successful destination. This is law of Nature that sun rises and sets everyday, this is up to man how he makes use of this day and night time. If a man is sensible enough and recognizes his duties, he will surely improve and prosper in life. But if he does otherwise he has to repent. Life is nothing but it is a total sum of time. When we sow a seed at proper time, we will harvest an ideal crop. That is why , it is always said that it is a man himself who can either make or mar his destiny.

To put in nut shell, I would like to say that a man can avert his destiny, if he has a strategical mind and has belief in practicalism rather in fatalism. We can say man is a ruler of his realm who can exploit every source for shaping his bright destiny. And it is a false notion that fate creates everything. Here, I am not refusing the role plays by God, because God always puts one into a trial for polishing one’s potentials.  It is said;

“Heaven ne’er helps the man

                                                                     Who will not help himself”

Thus when a man works with strong resolution and an unshaken will, he can mould his destiny according to his own choice. Problems and difficulties are momentary, and therefore,a person must be devoted and enthusiastic, if he wants to shape out his destiny. Edward Gibbon is very right in saying that;

“The winds and waves are always on the side

                      of the ablest navigators”

Young Habits Die Hard

Young Habits Die Hard:

“We become what we do repeatedly” (Sean Covey)

It has rightly been said,because when we do something frequently it becomes our habit.This constantly performed action engraved in personality and becomes difficult to withdraw. Young age is a period,when various habits are growing up in a child and habits formed in early age are hard to quit.Practicing good things make our life happy.We become role models when we indulge ourselves in good habits.Habitual action is a mechanical  process and usually instilled in us involuntarily.Young age is very sensitive period because at that time children are unaware about the outcomes of habits.They do things for fun.Later on,these habits become part of their life and are difficult to correct. Mark Twain states:

                                                “Everyone is a moon and has a dark side

                                                     which he never shows to anybody”

Habit is something like a nature and once a habit is formed we are completely at its mercy.We want to abandon bad habits but we can not because we have become the slaves of our wishes.A bad habit causes loss to oneself and disgusts others.Habit is like a seed.If we sow good seeds,we will reap the best crops.Otherwise the result will be vice versa.

Good Habits:

Good habits are inevitable for leading harmonious and successful life.Our good deeds make our surroundings pleasant and worth living.History is witness that all great people were having healthy habits. They were devoted,determined and passionate people.They did things with craze and used to spend their time in doing constructive things.Reading books is a very useful habit and one must cultivate it because it enhances our exposure towards the outer world.

And playing group sports is considered an ideal habit.This habit brings harmony and integrity in our social life.If the children had played together,the sense of co-operation would have been developed in them.Many other good habits also brought up in them like passion of sacrifice for each other,honesty,commitment and the courage to face difficult circumstances boldly etc.This will largely be helpful in the positive construction of personality.Good habits are like blooming flower.If we do not make practice of them,they will die.Habits are a recognition of a person,we are known in society with the reference of

what we do and think. John Ruskin has rightly said:

                                           “Tell me what you like and I will tell you what you are”

Development Of Good Habits:

Developing good habits is pretty difficult in the beginning.But with the passage of time,the work which seems to us difficult,becomes easy and we perform it with perfect ease.For instance,when a child is sent to school;he weeps and cries.But when he daily goes to school it becomes his routine work and he gets accustomed to it.And one day he achieves great success when his studies are accomplished.This habit helps him in becoming an ardent citizen of country as well.

Similarly,a lecturer is also gets confused on his very first day in class.He can not deliver his lecture properly and even he finds himself at a pinch while speaking.His voice shivers badly.But he grows bold when he performs this job daily.He becomes assertive,confident and achieves the facility of speech.It is habit which makes things easy and the pain of work vanishes away with it.These examples reveal that when we practice things with full devotion and good intentions,these are perfectly injected into our personality.These gradually developed habits make us the most prestigious and noble figure of society.

Bad Habits:

Bad habits have its own charm but these are always destructive and ruin the personality of a person.These habits kill the innovative aspect of one’s personality.These are those habits which are usually performed consciously.Mostly people indulge in bad habits at young age.They take the habits of drinking and smoking from their peer groups. They drink and smoke to show people their maturity and strength and they forget the fact that these habits are destroying their health badly.This impertinent activity results in severe health conditions in later life.These people have to suffer lung cancer and other lung related complications.

And drinkers become a burden on society.The habit of drinking paralyze them.Even they loss the sense of right and wrong.Their purpose of life dies and they spend their whole life in an everlasting lurch.They suffer from different diseases.This habit which they adopt in their childhood for making fun become a curse for their whole life.Nobody like to have relations with such people and even their own flesh and blood leave them alone.This loneliness and pain become their punishment.The anti social activities of childhood are often seem difficult to wipe out.A child learns the habits of lying,stealing,misbehaving with elders  and being stubborn at very early age.Resultantly he becomes a dangerous thief,a liar,immoral and known as a totally ignorant  person.He has to get embarrassed every where.Nobody gives him respect and he loses his prestige and becomes a notorious person.His heinous crimes bring disastrous  in society and he disturbs the peaceful life of people.

 

Habits Constitute The Character Of A Person:

The character of a person is essentially the product of his habits.Character is not formed by abrupt actions but it is rather a system of repeated actions.Therefore, it is emphasized that good habits be taught in early life. Samuel Smiles has said:

                                                             “Sow a thought,and you reap an act;

                                                               Sow an act,and you reap a habit;

                                                                Sow a habit,and you reap a character;

                                                                Sow a character ,and you reap a destiny.”

He means to say that our habits are our character and our character leads us towards destination.The desirable habits can build the character of a man in the best way.When we do things in compulsion,it is always harmful.Therefore,we should perform good habits for the building of an exemplary character.

Influential Elements In The Formation Of Habits:

There are many elements that play a vital role in forming good habits like family,environment,education and companions etc.Initially a child imitates its elders.As he grows up he moves in society and gets influenced from his companions.That is why it is said,man is largely a product of his surroundings and whatever happens around him has a great influence on him. Education is a crucial element as well in the formation of ideal habits.It helps ion moral purification of a child.Therefore,it is necessary to put a child in good environment.In this way he sees good things,he will try to follow and copy them.Educational capabilities help him in developing good habits to large extent.It will not be wrong to say that a child is what,its family and society make it.

To epitomize the whole discussion we can say that habits which are instilled in young age have long term effects,whether these are good or bad.There is no doubt that young habits die hard but a person, is known as the best creature of this world, can modify it.Because he has been endowed a strong will that can overcome any bad habit at any stage of his life.Therefore,it is said,we should make every effort to give up bad habits and every opportunity must be utilized to form better ones.I would like to sum up my above mentioned discussion by a quote of Samuel Johnson:

                                                                “The chains of habits are too weak to be felt

                                                                  until they are too strong to be broken”

A True Love

A True Love

Producing smile is the job of man;

My every smile contains Thy name,

Everything that I have is Thy blessing;

And Thou always saved me from blazing.

Thou heal my wounds and take away all my pain,

I never felt me alone due to Thy coalescing;

When I weep and get oppresses,

Thou come like a light and console me as a god friend,

I always feel Thy Hand in my hand;

Thou can never see me stressed,

And always stay me blessed.

Thou never blamed me when I do wrong,

Thou just came and lead me towards the right plan.

Thy love is like an ever burning flame,

That has no ending and is always caressing;

Thou give me name and fame.

Today I am confessing I feel shame,

When I look at thy grants and observe my sinful deeds;

Thou art an absolute Omnipotent Power,

And I am just a seed,

Who beg nothing,just the true flame of Thy Love;

That is beyond everything and is always true.

Thy Eyes

Thy Eyes Can Never Lies

        Thy eyes can never tell lies,

        Thou can not conceal thy love or fie,

       When thou are silent,thy eyes speak,

       As they are giving me some advise.

       Every time,I look deep into thy eyes,

      I find an endless affectation,

      That makes me sensationalize;

     And I get lost in innumerable memories,

    Thus forgetting the world behind me.

    When I see tears in thy eyes,

    I feel myself die,

   I want to take all thy sorrows as my glee,

   Because they have not been made for thee,

   And always want to see thy eyes shine brightly in dark skies.

Pain A Feared Apprehension

Pain A Feared Apprehension:

Have the courage to live. Anyone can die (Robert Cody)

Pain is an unpleasant and an unwanted sensation, but it is very realistic problem and inevitable part of life. People can wear pain on the outside like a mask,hiding it from the world.But it hides deep within them waiting to be freed by some emotional circumstance. Oddly enough,pain is one of the most feared apprehensions in the minds of humans.

Just the name itself is enough to drive people away.That is why instead of being an essential part of life everybody tries to avoid it,whether it is physical or mental.It seems the fear of pain is bigger than the experience of pain. Actually it is the fear that exaggerates the feelings of pain and make it unbearable.

Types Of Pain:

There is much pain that is quite noiseless; and that makes human agonies mere whisper in the hurrying existence.We all know that pain is a very intensive feeling,because everybody has  experienced it at one time in his life.There are two types of pain; the physical or the emotional painPhysical pain is the sensation of pure discomfort that we feel physically. Emotional pain is very horrid type of pain, it feels as our insides are being wrenched out. When people are suffering emotional pain that take very serious steps,such as taking their own lives.

Benefits Of Pain:

Being a crucial part of life pain does two things:it teaches us and tells us that we are alive. When it passes away leaves us changed. Sometimes it makes us wiser and stronger. Either way pain leaves its mark and everything is important that happens in our life. There are less painful experiences that only hurt when they occur. For example the pain we get during play games. At the time it hurt something awful, but by the next day it is practically forgotten. It is forgotten so quickly, because it is the part of our daily life’s routines.

Positive And Negative Effects Of Pain:

Pain has many positive and negative effects…Sometimes we think we have gone off the deep end, but pain can be very beneficial. It can hurt at the time, but in the long run we will be thankful that we have had it done. The example of childbirth will be more right in this context. At the time of real birth it is very painful.But when our child come into this world we forget everything. We see,without the pain ,our child would not have been born into this beautiful world. But when we take pain needlessly it imparts negative effects.

Every Pain Is Bearable:

But we have noticed an interesting fact that there is no unbearable pain. If it were really unbearable we would not survive. We would be dead now. Although pain is a very difficult feeling to deal with yet to prevent it we will have to counter it boldly. We will have to accept it as a part of life. Pain is simple a painful fact. Pain is a signal of physical discomfort that is given by the nerve to the brain. And we suffer when we refuse it and expect that our life should not be painful. And this refusal is quite natural because it is always human nature, not to acknowledge the unwanted things. Suffering come from our wish that the pain should not be there because we feel there is something wrong in pain. We can lead a happy life only when we admit pain as a part of life and separate the fat from our expectations. For instance, when we have a headache: pain is there but suffering is not there because suffering is a secondary phenomenon while pain is primary. When we have a headache than pain is simply a fact. We can not pass any judgement about it. We do not call it good or bad and we do not give it any value because it is just a fact. Rose is a fact, so is the thorn. If we have a day then coming of night is a fact. Similarly head is a fact, so is the headache.

Art Of Releasing Pain:

If we want to release our pain,we must know the art of looking at it;very soon the pain will turn into happiness and we will have found a key to our basic problems of life. When we feel that a pain is long lasted and focusing our mental capabilities in the form of headache or vice versa. We must listen to it and intensify it. We should make it more and more tense. The more we concentrate, the more it will go on shrinking and finally fade away.

I would like to conclude my whole discussion by saying that pain is mere a feared apprehension and nothing more. There is no escaping pain. Pain is one of the realities of life, whether it be physical or emotional. And everybody has to experience it in his life. There is no hiding from it because it always follow us. For example death captures us where ever we go. Life without pain would be like a man without a woman. But there is only thing that can save us  and help us in getting grapple with this apprehension and that is our will power. We will have to make us strong and admit the reality of pain in life. This art will lead us to happy and prosperous life. And we will be able to lead a healthy life in which happiness and sorrows go side by side.

Havelock Ellis has said:

Pain and death are parts of life, To reject them is to reject life itself.

A Dying Moon in a Desert

In a desert, I saw a moon

Sitting on a huge dune,

I was gazing at it like a loon

For this sight was really kaboom

The dim yellow light,

Reflecting a depressing sight

It was gradually sighing and dying;

Looking boozy growing broomy,

And seemed like a fragile maiden

As overwhelming grief had made it ashen

This sight of dying moon

Made me sad soon…
