Listen!

I strongly believe that your inner voice always guides you to the correct path. Whether we choose to listen to it or ignore it, is what entirely decides our destiny. If we ponder deeply inner voices correspond to the echo from our soul and our soul in the true sense is the iota of almighty.

Think about it! When we watch a movie or read a novel there often is this random character who due to some circumstantial developments is forced to rob or kill someone. On the contrary his instincts always guide him otherwise and he stands still at the spot for a couple of minutes but does it anyway which leads to the whole trail of wrong happenings. The same character submerged in retrospection later conveys his story to others guiltily repeating ‘only if I had listened to my inner voice…’

In today’s world where we humans unwisely fall prey to the void claims of random perpetrators, why is it that we find it so difficult to trust our own intimate monologue? Why are we so scared to take a leap of faith led by our own conscience?

As it is said charity begins at home. You must seek your own salvation by listening to your soul. It is only when you are face to face and at peace with your own qualms you will be able to truly, empathetically and extraordinarily aid society.

World eagerly awaits millions of stories to be told, thousands of songs to be sung, many confessions, arguments, proposals, random conversations over a cup of tea to be heard.

Alas! There are very few people who earnestly listen.

We all are so engrossed in singing songs of our own glory, exaggerating our own nightmares that we unknowingly end up being ignorant to everything and everyone around us.

Emotions are to be hurt and trust is to be broken,
Promises are not to be kept and feelings are not to be heeded,
Pain is not to be healed and Plea is not to be listened,
Why has the world become so heartless?
It’s time, a dawn of pure love, trust, empathy and respect to be seeded.

In the world where we all crave to be heard, why can’t we willingly choose to listen to what others have to say. In the process we might heal the depressed, calm the exasperated, uplift the demotivated, and cure the broken.

Wouldn’t the world be the best place to live in then?

Let us be courageous enough to listen to our own self and courteous enough to listen to fellow beings.
