Break Point

Author: Rifka Bose /

People say "its time to move on"...but are we not moving everyday in tiny ways and more ways than one? I guess its when we have to let go and move on, that the battle begins...

Take the example of the trees that sway in a storm. The ones that don't try to stand up straight, tall and erect and allow themselves to bend and be blown with the wind; well they are the ones that understand the power of letting go and surrendering to the unknown. For those trees and those branches that try too hard to stand up strong and straight are the ones that break.

Impulsiveness

I found this beautiful quote on compassion and impulses by Eric Hoffer
"Compassion is the antitoxin of the soul: where there is compassion even the most poisonous impulses remain relatively harmless."


Reacting on an impulse can have serious repercussions but the presence of compassion super cedes everything. The sad part that i have come across in my life is that there is very little room left for compassion.

Everyone is caught up in the rat race called life! Do we really stop, see and think, that a single action or word or gesture can make a difference to someone or something?
