Some thoughts

Posted by alizafar on May 18, 2011 in General

As I turn a year closer to moving on, felt like sharing stuff. Perhaps something personal.
I was having a casual discussion with a friend in the plane the other day and shared some thoughts and he compelled me to share them with more people as it might help someone. And since people keep asking me for tips and ways to acquire their dreams and I don’t really know what to say,I will try today without sounding preachy. All I can do is share my thought process which may help. I will try make it simple. May be kids will pick something up. Most adults seem pretty fixed and “sorted” anyway. So I’ll share whatever comes to mind. See if anything helps:

1) I have always felt connected to a force beyond my comprehension. The connection was more unconscious in beginning but later became conscious and more aware and now works by default. It brings in a sense of extreme positivity, love and thankfulness-A force that mainly drives me on a daily basis besides my passion for art and hard work.
2) I have always felt drawn towards compassion more than indifference.
3) I have always believed in the day of my dreams coming true and visualized it from the start and refused to believe otherwise even when told by someone close as a friend or relative. Most importantly, I worked hard for it day and night.
4) I do not judge/hate people on the basis of their religion, culture, creed, faith, origin, ideas etc. I respect and value each one for their own.
5) I believe that my path was my own to follow and one must learn to create his/her own learning from good virtues of others’.
6) I try not to fear. Instead embrace it.
7) I love to learn and I love to make people happy.
8) I believe that we are all extensions of each other and by hurting someone else we hurt ourselves.
9) I make mistakes and have my deficiencies but i try to realize them and work to correct them everyday.
10) I respect each and every person/animal/plant/ thing in existence regardless, but I believe in standing up for what is right and fight for it; I believe for which I must know what “right” is that can only happen through thinking, asking, listening, reading, learning and practicing and do all of this with an open, unbiased and rational mindset.
11) I believe that sometimes the only way to learn is to unlearn first.
12) I respect what my teachers, my parents or my traditions taught me but I believed in moving further on from their on my own guts to discover more in an effort to keep enhancing my own quality of life and others effected by it.
13) I love life and I believe it doesn’t end. Just like this note doesn’t end here…
