Hope and dreams - 55 words






(Image taken from here)

dreams and hope

The boats of hope filled with passengers called dreams sail towards their destination. But, the destiny is always unknown. The strong currents of fate have their role to play. They help some boats reach their destination, that is, the shore of ‘Reality’, while some boats are forced to land up in the shore of ‘Illusions’.

P.s. Since we are the ones who row the boats, some part of destiny lies in our hands too!


Someone asked God “If everything is already written in destiny, then why should we wish for something?” God smiled and said, Maybe in few places I have written ”As you wish!!"--Unknown

u may be reluctant on coming to my site .. but ur work and thoughts attract me always .. and even this one is so amazing !!!
and hence I have a query

have u thought Illusion and reality are same!!A reality is what u experience and an illusion is also what u experience visualize as much as reality and its only the one who is not able to see what u see says its ur illusion !! Even illusion is a reality .. No matter where the waves of fate take the boat .. ur landing on the same island .. the part of reality has many people alongwith u and the part of island which has illusion is where you are alone thats all !!
i love the depth of your thoughts as I alwyas say Valli !!

Thanks for the read Everyone :)

@Mysay I visit your blog sometimes and I really like your cartoons ;)

I liked your deep analysis on reality and illusion. Hmmm...May be I didn't express my thoughts clearly and used inappropriate word - Illusion. I might have used Unreality instead.

What I mean by illusion is unreality. The feelings we experience are always true but they might not be real. For example, If I say "I'm flying high in the sky!" The feeling I am having that I'm flying is true, but in reality I cannot fly.

The thoughts I wanted to convey through this post is - We all have dreams. And we all dream with the hope that they will come true one day. Hope is what keeps us going. But all our dreams won't come true! Some become reality and some remain as dreams (unreality/illusion). Fate/destiny also has a role to play in our lives which I believe we have control on it to some extent.

Saru Singhal said...

Yes, a part of destiny lies in our hands but in my experience the better part is still left out.

Nabeela Mahboob said...

That was lovely!!!

Shine Kapoor said...

That is what I am questioning today. Does God have a script, and we all are acting as mere puppets to it - is it all decided in advance? Or does the god not know what is to come next, is it like an unscripted movie for him/her? He is also relishing the drama in each one of ours lives?
Nice fiction 55.
