ElusiVe number 3

​It all started one lazy Sunday afternoon in a small town near Toronto in Canada.

Two school-going friends had a crazy idea. They rounded up three goats from the neighborhood and painted the numbers 1, 2 and 4 on their sides. That night they let the goats loose inside their school building. The next morning, when the authorities entered the school, they could smell something was wrong. They soon saw goat droppings on the stairs and near the entrance and realized that some goats had entered the building. A search was immediately launched and very soon, the three goats were found. But the authorities were worried, where was goat No. 3? They spent the rest of the day looking for goat No.3. The school declared classes off for the students for the rest of the day. The teachers, helpers, guards, canteen staffs, boys were all busy looking for the goat No. 3, which, of course, was never found. Simply because ………… it did not exist………

 

*Those among us who, in spite of having a good life are always feeling a “lack of fulfillment” are actually looking for the elusive, missing, non-existent goat No.3. Whatever the area of complaint or dissatisfaction, relationship, job -satisfaction, finance, achievements, … 

*An absence of something is always larger than the presence of many other things*

 

Let’s Stop worrying about goat No.3 enjoy life !!! 😀

7 Powerful Quotes For When You Feel Lost In Life

There are moments in our lives where we feel utterly and entirely lost. There are no clear directions or paths for us to take, just one big ball of confusion without an instruction manual or a tutorial as to how to “live.”

This is more than okay, for we all become lost in life every now and then. Sometimes it’s better to surrender yourself to the universe and let the world show you your next adventure.

The next time you feel like you’re completely lost, remembering these quotes could save you a lot of trouble and time the next time it happens to you!

1. “You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.”

If you are constantly looking back on the past, then you can never truly live in the present. You must keep moving forward in your life no matter how lost you feel. Now’s the time for you to go out there and discover new and amazing things you could be enjoying!

2. “Sometimes you need to talk to a three-year-old just so you can understand life again.”

This means that sometimes adults too often let the serious things in life suck all the joy and fun away from their lives. Sometimes we need to have a quick chat with the younger side of ourselves to revisit what it means to live again. Let yourself be a kid every now and then, not everything needs to be so critical all of the time.

3. “Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be.”

This is pretty self-explanatory. However, there are times where the answer is not always clear, reminding us of who we are, what we love doing, and where we would rather be right now. Sometimes the answer for a new direction or path is usually the obvious one right in front of us.

4. “If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door.”

If your calling isn’t exactly calling back to you, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Perhaps it was something that you really wanted to try but didn’t work out. That’s alright, there are bound to be other doors that you can open, that are made to be opened specifically by you. Never stop finding new opportunities to test yourself!

5. “If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.”

If you are not satisfied with where you are living, then be that change you so desire. Find the place that is just right for you, and stop at nothing to achieve those dreams and goals. If there is nothing holding you back and you have the means to go and fight for what you want most, do it. Follow your gut instincts!

6. “Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.”

One of the most important lessons in life that we must learn is how to accept the good times, along with the bad times, in our lives. Sometimes, the bad things that happened to us, happened for a reason, giving us a new path to go on for newer and better things. It may be hard, but find that new direction to embark on, take it, and never stop moving forward.

7. “Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.”

Remember that not everything is permanent. Being temporary can actually be a very beautiful thing. There is always another path that can lead you to something much better or something that you’ve never experienced before. Be open to the limitless possibilities of the world around you!

मन एक दोराहे पर

I have felt the same myself many times. And very confident that many would have felt the same. Awesome expression of dilemma of choice we need to make someday.

Chakresh Mishra

पहाड़ पर चढ़कर, कुछ देर थमकर,
मन एक दोराहे पर खड़ा होता है  |

एक तरफ हैं और ऊँची चोटियाँ, हसीं नजारों का वायदा,
बड़ा नशा भी है, कुछ और चलने का, कहीं भटकने का,
विश्वास कहो या कहो गुरूर, वहां, सबसे ऊपर पहुँचने का,
कुछ तुड़े-मुड़े पन्ने भी हैं कहीं किसी जेब के एक कोने में,
जिनपर अपने हाथ से लिखा था, यूँ ही मधुर सपना बुना था,
समाज की, राष्ट्र की, मानवता की सेवा का संकल्प सजा था,
इस राह में कठिनाइयाँ हैं, राक्षस हैं, मनुष्य हैं, देवता हैं
लोगों का प्यार है, जयजयकार है, मान लो कि सारा संसार है |

एक दूसरा रास्ता भी है, बाहें पसारे, चुपचाप सा
कोई पगडण्डी नहीं बनी है इस पर
टेड़ा मेडा, बेतरतीब, न कोई नियम,
न शब्द, न स्वर,
न तुक, न ताल,
कहीं जाता भी है या नहीं, मैं नहीं जानता, न जानना चाहता हूँ
बस बुलाता है, बिना किसी ख़ुशी का वायदा किये,
खुद से बात करने का,
अंतर्मन को समझने का…

एक बुढिया थी

Are we all not the same somewhere. Beautiful expression of writer which highlights the indifference we all show towards less privileged human beings. Do we actually care or most of are just pretending to be good and merciful humans?

Chakresh Mishra

एक बुढिया थी,

वहीँ कहीं, शादीपुर मेट्रो स्टेशन के बाहर,

दरी पर बैठती थी |

मैं वहां से रोज़ जाता,

कभी घिन आती, कभी आती दया,

चुरा के मुह निकल जाता |

कभी कोई साथ होता तो उसको

लम्बा लेक्चर दे मारता,

गरीबी पर, भुखमरी पर, भिख मंगई पर

समाज के उन नासूरो पर,

जो काम न करके मांगते भीख,

हमारी नाक कटाते विदेशियों के सामने,

नयी मेट्रो की शोभा बिगाड़ते,

उन नाकारों पर

जिन पर tax – payers का पैसा,

पानी की तरह लुटा रही सरकार |

लेकिन एक और “मैं” था,

जो मन ही मन रोता उसकी बेबसी पर,

सर्दी में ठिठुरते हाथों पर,

क्या करता, जेब होती खाली

उसे देने को चंद सिक्के न थे |

student ही तो था केवल,

हाँ, गर्लफ्रेंड को पिज्जा हट ले जाना

एक अलग बात थी |

इस वाले “मैं” का मानना था

भीख से गरीबी बढती है |

एक दिन…
