Some things are not in our control…. no matter how hard we try… someone else’s intervention is required in order to achieve/complete them.
For instance, an interview: We can not interview our own self and get selected for a job. Someone else has to test our abilities.
A match: We can not win a match against our own self. We have to play against some one else.
We are dependent on other people at several instances through out our life. Maybe that’s what is called destiny…maybe that’s what is not in ‘our control’.
These times make us feel helpless. We think, what more can we do to change things? How can we somehow make the situation better? Nothing works. Even prayers don’t seem to work.
We can not control who we meet in our lives. We are destined to meet some people and destined not to meet many others.
Every person is a lesson and some lessons are repeat telecasts too! Until we learn each lesson well.
We try not to worry during these times but since mind is a wanderer, it wanders and worries.
There is a famous dialogue from a movie: “In life, you will always see two paths. One easy and the other difficult. The easy one will give you a lot of happiness initially, but in the end you will lose. The difficult path will test you, strain you, but in the end you will win.”
It’s important not to give up. One should not give up on himself and on his destiny. When one door closes, another opens up. The delay may seem challenging but everything works out in the end… if it is destined to work.
When things are not in your control, let them flow….let them go by….Just wait for the right moment.
Imagine ….you want to cross a road and there is heavy traffic. There is no way you can control the traffic. You have to ‘wait’ for the traffic to stop for the red signal …and then you can cross the road. Then the path will be clear….right in front of your eyes.
Wait for that moment…. Just wait….
In the worst case scenario, when you are stuck in a locked room…..Knock on each door that you see, look out through each window….keep knocking, keep looking, keep trying….Do not judge any opportunity…Do not judge yourself….. If you are destined to live, breathe and be successful, you will be.
Do not give up on your destiny and your life, until destiny gives up on you and your life.
Some things are not in our control and we need not be in their control.
