Leemz Pearls of wisdom

14 Mar

Son to his father

Son: “Daddy, I wanna be just like you. A controled, well established, humble business tycoon just like you.”

His father smiled and took away his car keys and bought him a bicycle. Cut his weekly pocket money to half and told him to find a job, start a small business or anything- Something!

Father: “There. Now earn it like I did.”

Younhee tamam hota hai

5 Jan

Youhee subha shaam hoti hai,
Zindagi apni tamam hoti hai.

Na kuch paaya, na khooya,
Jeewan ko apnay tamasha banaya.

Nadaniyon mai guzri apni tou zindigani,
Kadar iss zindagi ki humnay na jaani,
Kuch pal milay jo,
Hass ro kai beethay,
Haqiqat humnay kabhi bhe na maani.

Hy,
Younhee subha sham hoti hai,
Zindagi apni tamam hoti hai!

Been wanting to spare some time for myself, for quite some time now. But all in vain. I don’t even offer my prayers on time. How stupidly lousy I am. How ignorant of the consequences. How imensely oblivious of the outcomes. How ashammed of myself I truly am, right now.

It’s 2 in the morning and I haven’t offered my night prayer, uh man! I hardly ever wake up for fajr 😦 you know what, one of the identificication characteristics of ‘hypocrite’ is that they miss/ not regular in morning and the night prayer.Damn!

For how long, am I gonna live, 5 to 10 years maybe, make it even 20, what then? After that I’ll have to face all my short comings. Uh!

I disgust myself,
I truly do!

Change

26 Oct

Are you familiar with this word? How often do you hear it? No, never, not often, everyday? So, what is change? Why is change important? Is is wise to bend rather than to break? What is change to you?

Change to me, my friend brings out the best in you, it makes you a better human because it allows you to explore your abilities and polish your skills. Opens new horizons for you to explore, so you never get bored of yourself. And who can get enough of the person having gazillion interests. (with a hint of exaggeration hehehe)

You discover new ideas, thoughts, feelings and the best of all, new-world around you. You won’t get bored anymore.

  1. But the first step to change, is self-assessment and that my friend ain’t THAT easy. All you need to do is, be honest to yourself, filter out all the things you don’t want in yourself  by first jotting ’em down on a piece of paper. Once done get to second level.
  2. Now the second level is that you, give it your best short and do wonders. Now there there, it won’t happen overnight but it won’t take THAT long as well.

Do it often, filter out unnecessary habits and make some space available for some fresh ones. Those who change will get spiritual wisdom. Conversely, those who have wisdom will decide to change. Because only stones don’t change 🙂

Live a better tomorrow.

Food for thought

15 Mar

Don’t just jump to the answer. First think of your answer and then read the correct one.

Question: Two men walked out of a coal mine. One of them had his face all covered in coal dust. So, who will wash his face first?

Answer: Nope, it’s the guy with a clean face. Yes!

Because when he will see the guy with the dirty face, he will think maybe his face is dirty as well so, he will go and wash it.
