The Wheel of Time….

“As the Wheel of Time turns, places wear many names. Men wear many names, many faces. Different faces, but always the same man. Yet no one knows the Great Pattern the Wheel weaves, or even the Pattern of an Age. We can only watch, and study, and hope.” ― Robert Jordan, The Eye of the World

No one has the power to stop the wheel of time, it’s ever moving and can never be stopped. We humans are sitting on the great chariot of life which is running on the wheel of time. It never pity or show mercy on anyone but crushes down whoever comes in it’s way. We all try hard to control it but the truth that it’s already obstreperous is known by only few. Whoever knows the truth never tries to stop it but learns to come in terms with it.

We often say that ‘the time has not yet come’ but there might be a possibility that the time has already gone. So, postponing something or waiting for the right time is a folly. Realization of the power of time is one of the most important lesson of life. We can grow but we can grow with time only when we know the reality.

There are no endings and never will be endings, to the turning of Wheel of Time.

Imagination: The glory of life

“If you cannot imagine the vision of your dreams how are you ever going to get them. It will be there in front of you all your life but you won’t be able to see it. If you have a strong imagination you could be anything, you could be anywhere and you could be anyone. People can  bind you through boundaries but no one out there has the power to bind your imagination.”

All of us know about time travelers but how many of us believe in them. have you tried knowing what made them travel through time. The answer may be or may not be their imagination. They had such strong imaginations that they broke the boundaries of time but we doesn’t have even a quarter of it to reach there.

This is the story of two captive birds. Every one of us get something as a legacy, they got captivity as a part of their legacy. They had big beautiful wings but they didn’t know how to flap them to fly. But even in that captive condition one of them would always tell the other one that when he will make his first flight it would amaze every one. He would flap his wings with such energy and strength that it  will create turbulence on earth and his soar would be so high that his wings will touch the clouds. The other one would always laugh at him and would consider him as a day dreamer. He learnt to compromise with his condition and accepted it as his ultimate future.  As the days went by both of them grew older and theirs wings grew stronger but only one of them could imagine the strength of his wings and for the other it was just another thing which will be there with him but he won’t be able to use it.

“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”- Oscar Wilde.

One fine day the holy gods showered mercy on them and someone did come to release them from their captivity only to give them another one.

“We have only this opportunity. We have to fly or we’ll be always captives.” The day dreamer asked his fellow bird.

“But how to escape? We don’t know how to fly.” The other one replied.

“You are a bird and you have wings so you can fly.”

“But I never tried that before.”

“There’s always a first time and life never gives you second chance.” The day dreamer said and when the moment came the day dreamer flew to the sky with wings wide open and with such strong flight that no one could keep him captive anymore. His flight did create a turbulence and his soar did reach the clouds. But the other one couldn’t move his wings, his fear stopped him from taking his chances and forced him to captivity again.

What made one bird break his captivity and other one remain captive forever?

The answer is lack of “Imagination”. Your imagination needs no experience or knowledge. It is like a bird with wings wide open soaring high and deep in the sky. Your imagination can break all the barriers setting you free enough to overcome all you weaknesses.

“ The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”- J.M. Barrie.

Survive: A blink was all she could do

Survive

When After five months, surviving from a deathly accident Claira opened her eyes, she found herself in the hospital room. Her entire body was paralyzed and her movements were restricted to her eyes. An initial head CT scan in the emergency department revealed that she was suffering from ” Locked-in-Syndrome” following “Ventral Pontine” hemorrhage. She was suffering from a neurological disorder characterized by complete paralysis of voluntary muscles in all parts of the body except those that controlled her eye movements. She was fully conscious and could think and reason but was unable to speak or move. She could only blink her eyes.

It was not only Claira but her father also got greatly affected by knowing her condition. He couldn’t believe the turn of events in their life. Seeing her in such helpless condition was not very easy but for him it was a gift that she survived.

Claira’s eyes slowly opened to see raindrops falling from the window pane admitting that it was raining outside. Her eyes found the ceiling above and the side walls painted in white. But her real concentration was the rain. She remembered how she always loved it. She had a sudden urge to feel the raindrops touching her skin but she couldn’t. For a moment she felt terrible to be left like that but then she realized that she survived death, that she could see this world a little longer, that she could survive a few more days or may be months. Her eyes lingered on the raindrops dripping from the window pane and she blinked giving  a deep sigh of satisfaction.

Life is not always what we wish for, it loves giving surprises to us. Whether good or bad we need to survive it. It should be cherished in all forms.
