Today, Jan 12th is Swami Vivekananda's birth day.
The greatest of great men i admired ever.
He has influenced me to a great extent.
One quote which i found very inspiring and motivating is,
"Take up one idea.Make that one idea your own.
Think of it; dream of it; live on it.
Let your mind, muscles, nerves every part of your body
be full of that one idea. Just leave every other idea alone.
This is the way to success!"
-Swami Vivekananda.

I always tried to follow it.
In every little thing i do,if i am
successful, i am right on the path;
only one idea in mind.
But its not always the case.
Thoughts pour into mind, from all possible
directions, whether i want them or not.
Unknown fear, feeling discouraged and i would think
to give up almost.I'll suffer with them for sometime.

But again swami's words on the wall
give me strength:

" Be Fearless Fear is death, fear is sin, fear is hell, fear is unrighteousness, fear is wrong life. All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in the world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear."
-Swami Vivekananda.

I will become alert,
throw everything else from mind,
and focus on that one idea again.

These two cycles come as day and night come
periodically. It thus proves the phenomena
that nothing stays long;
Bad days go, even good days go.
We just have to be aware of our duty today.

I should mention here that, its one year today that i
joined Indian Institute of Astrophysics as a PhD student.
My dream of several years came true on this day of 2007.

Truth can be bitter...
Truth can be painful...
Truth can be funny...
But truth is always a truth...

You can make one believe a lie as truth...
You can never make one believe a truth as lie...
Truth is always a truth and
Lie is always a lie!!

May be its true...

May be its true that some thoughts will never come true...
May be its true that sometimes i can't prove...
May be its true that somethings which i believe do not exist at all...
And they just cross the mind without any reason...
May be its true that somethings-which i think today
that would make me happy tomorrow will dissolve tonight in darkness and
next morning (which surely comes) comes with a different light...
Light-bright enough to overwhelm my thoughts...
And makes me realize that,
Light that i had expected is not the end of darkness...
Its just a light which even ends with darkness...

I may shed a few drops today..
I don't want them to flow tomorrow...
This little strength is that i have always...
I certainly have always...
