Contentment bears many blessed fruits.More than anything else, by being contented with that which is decreed, one is able to soar to the highest levels of faith and truthfulness.
Some might wish for only good to befall them, for only pleasant things to occur in their lives, but this way, contentment can’t be gauged.Many beautiful characters which include patience, total dependence, contentment, humbleness, fear of God e.t.c only become manifest when one is confronted with something he dislikes.so being pleased with that which has been decreed does not mean being contented with only those things that suits one’s disposition; The real gauge for true contentment are those Times when one goes through a painful situation.
NB:Human beings do not have much of a choice in regards to divine decree; The choice and the decision thereof belong only with the most high, The all Knowing.
Emotion is any conscious experience characterized by intense mental activity and a high degree of pleasure or displeasure. Emotion is often intertwined with mood, temperament, personality, disposition, and motivation.
Clean mind is half way to successful results. When you need to bring an important decision, your brain should be in chill out position, and your nerves should be calm. Unfortunately, mostly it’s not like that, so we have bunch of decisions which are made in state of anger, rage, wrath or even hate. Emotions are beautiful part of every human being, but just in a case when we control them or when we use them the right way. When you let your emotions to go wild, results will be unexpected and not as you wanted. Feelings are as furious dogs. If you let them to rule over you, they will bite you.
It is not uncommon to see laborers who are so poor that whatever they earn on any given day is spent on that same day. Yet many of them are happy, peaceful, with strong hearts and tranquil souls.This is because they are to busy to think about yesterday or tomorrow.Their lifestyle has given them an appreciation of today since they have not been afforded the oppurtunity of thinking about anything else.
Compare these to those who live in mansions. Inactivity and free time have afforded them with plentiful time to think about their problems and their lack of purpose in life.Thus misery and worry afflict many of them day and night.
Happiness is a divine gift that doesn’t distinguish between the rich and the poor. Be contempted and grateful.
Happiness is all that you need.
I hear the splashing of rain
It has filled the rivers and drains
Emotions flood the watery lane;
One that can cause so much pain.
Ruthlessly, It has found a way;
To their homes and their farms array.
As lifes get washed away,
It flooded from their eyes into a bay.
Now they live under the sky with so much to fear.
Pools surround everywhere,
They are lost out here
Awaiting the day the ship is going to sail them right through their tears.
The society pays no attention whatsoever to the younger generation until they grow and quietly become something they disapprove. Its like planting a seed and just leaving it to bloom on its own but when it withers slowly and don’t come out nice, you blame it for not being able to blossom into something beautiful. We can do better to ensure we make the world a better place.
Somewhere in the night a child cries,
A woman weeps and someone dies.
Somewhere in the night,
Somewhere in the night , a soul screams,
As people fade and die, lost in dreams.
Somewhere in the night, reality lives.
Somewhere in the night loneliness dwells,
As people die, no sounding bells.
Somewhere in the night,
she dies alone.
Somewhere in the night …
Where is the light?
A 30 year-old son decided to admit his father into an old peoples home as desired by his wife. He brought the father in a car to an old peoples home run by a Catholic priest.
Then appeared this elderly priest, who came out to have a long chat with the old man. The son wondered and asked the priest whether he knew his father before, since they were talking as though they knew each other. The priest replied, yes, and continued, “He came here 30 years back and took with him a very sick orphan boy who everyone else had rejected for adoption. This man gave that boy a home and save his life. He told us this little boy deserves better and I’ll dedicate my life to make him the wealthiest young man when he turns 25”.
The priest continued, “I don’t know how long you have known him but I can tell you he is a good man and I am glad to inform you that you were the sick boy”. The boy, on hearing this, fell on his knees and begged the old man for forgiveness. The old man looked at him with a smile and said, “Son, I have forgiven you. You threw me out of my own home because of your wife. Take the house, but know that I have removed you from my documents as the sole heir of my empire. I have willed all my properties to this orphanage where I now belong.”
At the height of your success don’t forget where you are coming from, if not you will miss your destination and lose your Crown.
