I read today a very disturbing piece of news in a newspaper. It is about a Bangladeshi woman who jumped in front of a speedy train with her 4 children! She & 2 of her children died, while the other 2 were critically wounded.
Why did she commit suicide? Because the local court of her village condemned her for adultry with her neighbour, and judged her to leave the village with her children. She felt too ashamed and decided to kill herself and her children.
What's distrubing to me was:
1. She was a lonely woman raising her 4 children alone, because her husband is working in the UAE. Too sad that financial circumstances lead to the break up of a family and leave the woman alone, prone to seduction.
2. There was no word written about a verdict agaisnt the man (the co-adultrer) and she alone was to leave the village. So unfair and unhuman.
3. This is NOT a legal court, it is a local council (magles 3orfy) and it should not issue such sentences. As stated by the news, it should be only concerned with settleing disputes about lands or local fights. They just made themselves Gods and sentenced this woman just for their own satisfaction, driving this poor woman to her death with her own hands.
Justice, where art thou?
Take me to the place
The place where the sky is clear blue
The blue cloudless sky of autumn
Take me to enjoy the gentle sun beam on my face
I miss the smile facing the sun
I miss seeing smiles all around
Take me where they still believe each other
Where they still smile to each other for real
Take me where evil still makes some effort to invade hearts
If you are feeling unhappy, then the most obvious and easiest solution is to blame it on others or the circumstances, right?
Happiness really comes from the state of mind. If u think u should be happy, u will be happy. The opposite is also true. So u r doing the trick to urself !
A human being doesn't really need all the things that life is offering now, to be happy. It is an old deception that we all fall into its trap. The needs of a human being doesn't go out of the Mazlo's pyramids of needs. Even the higher levels, like self achievment & feeling one's value, can still be achieved.
So what is the trick? The trick is from inside. You have to sit with ur self first and see what REALLY makes u happy, not what others tell u that u should own or do to be happy. Don't think it is easy... it is complicated, cause by time, the extra stuff is now considered basic.
Let's take an example. Television. Like 60 years ago, TV was Sceince Fiction. A person who owned one, was considered the wealthy, up to date man. By time, the poorer people got hands on it and was a common entertaining equipment. Could u have imagined that after only 60 years, having a TV with sattelite dish installed is a must now? and who doesn't have one thinks he "should" have it one day? knowing that 60 years is nothing in the age of humanity.
Forget about things. Forget about places. A person would really be happy having loving people around him in his own comfortable place. So look around you, if u dont find this comfy place, or those loving people around u, then u should be unhappy. But if u don't have a G3 mobile phone connected to the sattelite, and feeling unhappy about it, then it's ur pure fault.
Life is precious. Don't waste it in worry or disappointment. Stop looking for what u don't have, and forgetting to enjoy what u do have. It's not easy believe me. I'm telling this to u, and to myself first. Be ambitious, no problem, but don't be ungrateful. Be thankful, for the good will go away from the unthankful.
So decide today if u want to go on with acting the lead role in the misery play, while u don't have a real script. Or just come out of ur coma, and start enjoying life again.
Don't worry :) Be happy :)
New things are always glamorous and shiny..
We get excited, we look forwards and hope.
We wish the days run quicker and bring new joys.
Beginnings are beautiful and wakes up our souls.
What if we can keep this spirit up for longer?
What if we try maintaining the excitment?
Won't this be even more beautiful?
But can we really do this? Or beginnings are just beautiful because they are beginnings?
Think about it..
It's up to you in the end. You can run away from your problems, or you can stay and try to deal with them. But be careful, while dealing with them, you must put your values and guide lines in front of you.
you pick up a brush, and draw a milky way..
you sit by the beach, and let the sand run through your fingers.
you hold your pet close and look in to its eyes
you put a loving kiss on your love's cheek, just next to his mouth
It's when u feel so hurt..
colors seem to fade ..
you pick up ur violin
and let it cry out ur pain with its melancholic blares
as it drips between your arms, your soul drips blood.. and the wound gets purified
It's when u feel reddish waves of anger
you want to scream out loud, and let the rage loose
your run, you climb, you break stones
you turn your anger into power.. into the power of will
It's when u get doubtful and confused
you lose track of your daily thoughts.. your hopes and dreams
you find the word "reach out" describing you perfectly
you reach out for your paper and pen
you pour yourself into a friend's heart and lap
no need for advice
just a pat or a hug does it all
don't be afraid
for even fear, will teach u .. will push u one step ahead
lay down the sandy beach and enjoy the sun one your face
make the violin cry with you, for it has no better use..
your paint brush looks so much better when paint is staining it, and the new road is drawn on a piece of white new cloth
hold him tightly, study his face closely
when he goes out of your sight, you'll have his picture in your heart
and when the red waves hit you.. hang on, cling to me, i can bear you in your wildest.. just promise me, you will always be true to your life..
