DP Daily Prompt: Reason to Believe

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

In Reason to Believe ,Bruce Springsteen sings,”At the end of every hard-earned day, people find some reason to believe.” What’s your reason to believe?

My reason to believe is as long as I am honest, truthful, and I never hurt or cheat anyone. I will be awarded by God.I say this from experience.

My father passed away when I was twelve, I had no idea how my mother will be able to take care of twelve children. I had two brothers and a sister, who had almost finished their education.

There were nine of us left to complete our education.  My two older  brothers supported  us by contributing funds for our education.

I always wanted to study in England, I knew it can never happen, my brothers could not bear the expense because it was too expensive to go there to study.

I kept hoping maybe I’ll be fortunate and get a scholarship to study in England. I wasn’t really positive it can happen, hope is a wonderful word and I kept hoping the day will come. It did and I grabbed it.

Now I believe everyone should hope, you never know when God would look down from heaven and say, “this person’s hope needs to be fulfilled.”

It was surely me He  looked at and said those unbelievable words!

365 Writing Prompts: My Precious

Who is the person in your life who can do no wrong? Describe this person and tell us why you hold them in such high esteem.

I saw this prompt last evening, since then I tried to think who might that person be. I cannot find such a person, it goes to show there is no such thing as a perfect person as there is none who can claim to be perfectly happy.

If I could find a person

who can do no wrong,

I’d fill my day with

a beautiful song .

Unfortunately it’s something

That’s never meant to be,

I have no regrets

Please believe you me!

365 days Writing Prompt: Morality play

Where do your morals come from–your family? Your faith?Your philosophical world view? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source?

We all learn right and wrong from an early age,whether we put it into practice is a whole different thing. Some of us follow what is right without questioning it, others might have a tendency to rebel it all depends on human nature. We learn this in school,at home, at work, we try our best to conform,sometimes circumstances can deter us from doing the right thing.

Our conscience plays a big part, we feel awful if we do something that we know ourselves is wrong. Then there are some who have no conscience, they lie time after time without feeling anything. They can and will make you look like an evil person , if they so desire.

How will I deal with them? I will stay away from them, it will not bother me, as long as my path does not cross with them. Some of these people do not learn from a different source, their mind is corrupt, they do it for attention and there are people naive enough to believe them.

Then there is temptation, an inclination to commit sin,it requires a strong will to resist it, that word ‘will’ is not present in their mind!

DP Daily Prompt: Reason to Believe

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

In reason to believe, Bruce Springsteen sings, At the end of every hard-earned day, people find some reason to believe. What’s your reason to believe?

At the end of every difficult season I have reason to believe the next one is going to be better. Winter started early, every day I believed it will not last too long because it started early. December,January,February, March and even April did not spare us from the dreaded snow.

While nature was lashing its fury on us a section of the population was loving it,they were raising their price for clearing the snow, between nature and some people we were being squeezed out of our money pretty fast. Even then I thought this cannot last forever,there still is hope of better days,when the snow will find some other place to torment and leave us alone.

This is May 1st and I am not convinced snow has done its job and will not come back till December. The sun is shining today, let’s hope our cold winter is ready to move on and leave us to enjoy some much needed warm days. My reason to believe this is because we had too many days of cold weather and we deserve some good warm weather.

I am lost

I don’t know

What will I write

I browsed through

the Reader

hoping to find the

prompts given by WordPress

On my way I found

My brand new friend,

Her name is Kavita

What a beautiful name

It means ‘Poetry’.

I stopped and read her poem,it is so amazing

I wish I could be as talented as her

Do drop by and read it yourself

If you don’t believe me.

Sachal sarmast

According to Sachal:  Thy first duty is to give up faith,unfaith,Islam and all religions.

He was born in Sindh,Pakistan in 1739,his real name was Abdul Wahab,he adopted the name Sachal Sarmast for his poetry

which means truthful mystic.He wrote mystic poetry in Arabic,Sindhi,Seraiki,Punjabi,Urdu,Persian, and Baluchi. Sachal urged people, rather than blindly following tradition,to seek truth directly.And like Ibn Arabi and others ,he taught a vision of unity called Wahdat-al -Wujud.He died on the 14th day of Ramadan in 1829 at the age of 90.

Sachal’s poetry.

Friend,this is the only way

to learn the secret way:

Ignore the paths of others,

even the saint’s steep trails.

Don’t follow.

Don’t journey at all.

Rip the veil from your face.

‘Tis not in religion I believe

‘Tis love I live in.

When love comes to you.

Say Amen!

Neither did I roll rosary nor did I ponder and pray,

I went to no mosque or temple,nor bow in adoration to any,

Sachal is lucky everyday,love is all around him.

You by yourself,know what is in your form!

Why chant ‘Allah! Allah’? Find Allah within you.

You listen,you see, Allah’s word is witness,

There is no doubt O Sachal! that the Lord is one!

We are,what are we?

We know not ,what we are!

For a moment we are blessed

For a moment we are accursed

Some moment we pray and fast

Some moment we are free spirits

Now we declare,’Only we exist’

Now we declare,’we don’t exist’

For a bit, our heart is calm

In a bit, we weep rivers

Now we say,’We are self-realized’

Now we ask , ‘Who are we?’

‘Sachal’ we are only That eternally

What other contracts can we make here?

I was sitting by the roadside ,

When the path became clear to me;

In the palace the Beloved I saw;

a glimpse the Beauty gave;

Through the window was the vision,

a glimpse the Beauty saw;

Take care of the ignorant;

Our bond was made for a reason.

I truly recognized the Lord,

My companion He sure became;

‘He is the creator of all

and intrinsic to all,

All doubts in this perished;

With happiness shall I carry

Sisters, if your trust I have.

All the journeys,all the manifestations

The Dear one’s own;

Friend Sachal  Know this correctly,

Slumber has created illusions.

Sachal regarded love as the path to spirituality:

‘Tis not in religion I believe

‘Tis love I live in.

When love comes to you,

say Amen!

‘Tis not with the infidel

that love resides,

Nor with the faithful.
