Read sometime back that ‘Motivation’ is like bath. It is a necessity and it is needed daily. However, its often boring to motivate one ownself by saying ‘everything is gonna be OK’. One or the other point of time in life we tend to wonder about our identity , our life’s purpose , our destination , our aims and all. There will be obviously some mismatch in our expected life and the real life. Sometimes we wonder where are we heading as things seem to be out of control. We tend to get disturbed by the things that happen to us in life. However, we realise that no one can bring out us from our blues except for our OWNSELF.
We try to motivate us by reading motivational books, praying , doing the things which we like and spending time with the people who encourage us. Whatever, we can enjoy the beauty of life if we live in the PRESENT MOMENT without worrying about the past and future. We need to learn to enjoy the beauty of every moment in life which is precious and which never comes back.
I came across this beautiful poem called “LOOK TO THIS DAY” by eminent ancient Indian Poet Maha Kavi Kalidasa. This is English version of the Sanskrit poem. I’m posting it for all of you. Read it and enjoy it.
Look to this day:
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendour of achievement
Are but experiences of time.
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision;
And today well-lived, makes
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day;
Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!
