You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop!
- Jalaluddin Rumi
Masjid dha de, mandir dha de, dha de jo kuj dehnda
Bus kisey da dil na dhaween, rab dilaan wich renda
(Destroy the mosque, demolish the temple
Break not one’s heart for God resides in hearts)
- Abdullah Shah (Baba Bulleh Shah)
- (Translated by: Zahra)
You do not let the fear of death come in the way of what you believe is your mission in life!
- Imran Khan
The earth is a planet inhabited by seven billion humans, a race that dominates all other beings in its intellect, nature and history. There are divisions of language, ethnicity and belief and materialistic social classification has been persistent over time as well. However, a commoner of this race has the same five senses and the same body structure. And so they say that together, we, the humans are like drops in a colossal ocean. The reality, however, is the diversification in similarity of our being. Each human is a miracle in himself, in his acts, philosophies and abilities… the ocean is within us! This uniqueness of us, all of us, is the reason that his world exists and continues to progress. However, it is courtesy from the roots of which shoots the stem of collective progress and the much valued unification of diversity! Respects for sentiments is the breeding light for this race of ours to prosper! The race taken by the fear of being vanquished by the fear of demise. There is no subduing the reality of mortality! Immortality is an illusion cast in the lake of the elixir of life, dismantled easily and factually by the fermented ripple of truth! Seek what you seek with profoundness, strive for what you seek with fidelity to the cause of it and not the fear of the struggle being ended midway for success is measured in subjectivity of consequences but failure is objective in the premise of not endeavouring!
My Nominees for Day 1 are:
