I am a firm believer in god, but I can't name him in different forms! I believe there is just one force from which we all have emerged and would submerge as well.
I also have a firm belief that we are all unique in our own ways .. Even science says that we all have unique DNA!! So we all have similar but different opinions, thoughts, expressions, etc. God has given us freedom of expression that we strangely are unable to use wisely. We are stringent to express at most times on how we really feel over something to ourselves first; then our parents, friends, society, etc. We all restrain ourselves in some way or the other and think that it’s for the highest good as it will be harmless; but in return we harm our own self.
And yes I won’t be a feminist here saying that this suffering lies only with women! Even men harm themselves by curbing their freedom to express! A lot of times people don’t express themselves to others. They refrain to deny things they are not comfortable about or put up things that they feel is right thinking that their family/society/friends may not approve of the same. They agree to what others want them to do and feel chocked and suffer! But this suffering is not what is destined for them. It’s a choice that they have made themselves by not using their freedom to express. They have curbed their own voice to express their desires. The strange part is that they feel that since the society would approve of it, so it s the right thing to do!! But I also want to highlight the fact that this society is made up of people like us only; even they have to oblige your approvals and get stuck in the same vicious circle of sufferings!! So why not break this chain and not only let ourselves but others too get out of this?
There are no universal rights and wrongs; it varies from individual to individual! What is right for you might not be right for others and vice versa. The next obvious question is how would we know what is right for us? For this the only way out is to hear your own inner voice…which is nothing but your connection with yourself and oneness with the supreme power!!!
I have read this thought somewhere and would like you to think through this … there are 3 C’s in life - Choices, Chances, Changes … you must make a choice to take a chance to change your life!! Please go ahead and find your own voice!!!
