I haven't given love. So how will I receive it?
I haven't been a friend. So how will one befriend me?
I haven't been good. So how will others be good to me?
Let me be the source first.
Becoming a destination depends on,
How good a source I have been.

Have I been like the Sun,
And helped life fluorish?

Have I been like the soil,
And nourished the plants above me?

Have I been like the air,
And supplied life-giving oxygen to all?

Have I been like the water,
And flowed through everybody, and quenched their thirst?

No, I have not constantly been so.

But the few moments I have been so,
I have been the happiest human being.......:)

  3. Hey :) I found another Gyan-creature alive on blogging world... I am not alone :) Just kidding. Wise words expressed so simple. There is a saying, "you correct yourself, the world will correct itself automatically", so it's always inside-out as you explained in every line.

    As one person commented above, world may call Gyan-creatures Impractical ones, but be like that. Impracticals' are original piece of humans; rare beings to stick to principles :) Keep writing.. I Will come back too read more here...

  4. Good One and powerful , Amrita. Soul searching and Introspection - while they help to be a better individual, at times, second guessing your own self pull you behind :-(.
