Past, Present and The Future....

Talking to a young man who was attempting to change his prospective of life. He considered himself as a failure because he hadn't achieved anything, though most of his friends have done well in business or in career. He was mixing with the wrong group since as a teenager, when he took up smoking and drinking. Not strong minded was he, when he could see only the bad part of life. His personal drive was weak and had a negative perception of everyone he met. Though he needed attention and was hungry to be loved, he didn't know how to express himself to his family and to those who were closed with him. His heart was sad when he had to cry silently in the late night by himself. He saw the world as ugly because his heart wasn't happy at all. Wherever he worked, he found it difficult to interact with his colleagues and the surrounding.

Thanks The Almighty Universe. I was given a chance to speak with him lately. As a preacher without any particular faith, I managed to reach up and touched his sorrowful heart. I spoke with softness and logic, understanding his mind and sadness. When a heart speaks with another heart, it usually speak the truth of life. I was amazed that this young man finally accepted my blessing, and is prepared to change over a new leaf of life. From rock bottom, he is willing to change and is prepared to climb the obstacles of life again. From a mind of negative, I inspired him to think positively. Motivating him to think only the brighter part of life. 

Taking him as a son I said... To be a good Angel, one has to understand what is a Devil. And to understand what is good, one has to experience what is evil of life first. In view you had seen what was hell, and had tasted the forbidden apple, you are now capable to understand the entire life of good and bad. Son! It's definitely not late for you to prove yourself that you can do well in life. In fact, I believe you can do better than those who had never experienced what you had gone through in life. I was one before. I was a rascal, good for nothing, not good in studies, a lone ranger, playful and a mischievous boy. BUT! With the so called as an unpleasant start in life, today the past had made me a stronger person who could understand the good and the evil of what life is. Yes! I strongly believe you will succeed in life. 

Food for thought - "If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present" - Lao Tzu
