One guy said that I will lift a bull and everyone started laughing at him. After few days, a cow delivered a calf and he started lifting that calf daily. Day by day the calf was becoming heavier and day by day his muscle strength also was growing. When the calf became bull, he lifted it one day. The thing which seemed to be impossible because our mind is unable to percept, became possible. If a human being can lift a bull, it can do many more things which we haven’t thought about up till now. However, for that we have to believe in ourselves. Indian history is full of such stories, where one person believed in his/her strength and was able to do which seems to be impossible by a human being. However, when we look at those stories, we think that they were born different. We are not from that lot. Whether it’s Mahatma Gandhi or Queen Laxmibai or Vivekanand. My mother always tells me that we are born in a restricted culture and we are supposed to follow same culture and values. You cannot rewrite anything new. Whatever is written in books for us we have to follow. So the big reason was what is written in books. I went and checked her reference books and I realised there is nothing as such written. In fact all the books or holy scriptures guide us to the path of love and oneness. No book says you are to divide human beings on the name of culture. Rest of the things are our interpretation and that is why everyone is trying to impose more and more restrictions. And to next generation we pass a message that we are supposed to follow whatever has been told. Well if that is true then there would not have been any BR Ambedkar because he was born too inside the boundaries and he broke them and wrote Indian constitution. He was born in that time called as untouchables. However, he stood up against untouchability and rose to that level. If we look at the things 50 years back, we were fighting with so many evils in the society like Sati Pratha, Child marriages, mistreatment of widows etc. If we would have kept believing in same that whatever was told to us was right, we still would have been reeling under same. Same way whatever restrictions are imposed on us would not be there after 50 years. These boundaries also would dissolve. However, for that we have to stand up for whatever we believe in instead of looking for everyone’s approval.
The truth is our mind cannot comprehend everything. We do not understand everything still we believe in lots of things. This is also true that we are much more powerful than we would ever know. However, since the time we are born we have been looking at ourselves from others perspective. We are taught who we are instead of being taught how to know ourselves. No one know how much powerful he/she is. We know about us only to the extent what others have told us and that is why for everything we would like to depend on others approval. We are not taught to believe in self and then do things. We would like others to stand by us or else we feel what if tomorrow it turns out wrong and then I would be standing alone. We are unable to accept own responsibility. However, if you believe in yourself, you would never need anyone else’s approval too. You need others approval for the things you want to do, because you don’t believe in yourself enough. We are taught to do things from others perspective.
If you want to step out of this quicksand, you need to believe in one thing that you can be whatever you decide to be and that can happen only when you expect only from yourself. If you expect from others even their approval, you would never be able to know what actually you are capable of. You are as infinite as this Universe because you are the Universe yourself. When you have God inside you, you cannot be short of any power. If they were born different, you are born different too. Just believe in yourself and believe in the God inside you and get going. No one would be able to stop you. Few days back, there was a news that a mother lifted a SUV because her baby was buried under that during an accident. The situation and her love for the child gave her power to lift that SUV vehicle. However, if the situation would not have arisen she would not have lifted. Now the main point is, she still had that power. It was upto her, whether she wanted to use that power or not. When she needed, she could pull that power. Same way we all are connected to the infinite source of power and whenever we want or intend to or we realize, we would be able to bring that power into use. No one is born different and yes everyone is different but equal for the creator and everyone is connected equally with the creator. Whenever we desire we can re-establish the connection which we have lost. Moment we are able to do that, we would realize that we have always been more powerful than we could imagine.
