THE 'SPECIAL DAY' OF MY LIFE!

No doubt for me the life in front may appear

Perfect when the issues around support,
Interesting when there is success,
Wonderful when prosperity shows up,
Worthy when appreciated and
Fulfilling when cared..

But 
The Great Masters of Philosophy
seeing similar life in front as limited and not alluring,
Preached self negation living thru' exemplary actions like..

A Great Saint living outside in open area saying, 
“Earth is the floor, Sky is the roof and hills around are the walls of my home!”,
The 80 yr old Saint when offered help by the disciples saying,
"As long as this hand moves, let this alone do the job!",
The Great Philosopher after recovery from attack saying 
“The hand that hit me is serving me!”,
when the serving disciple asked him who was helping him and
"They either torture or kill me; nothing more they can do to me!" 
thus saying the Great Man when cautioned about his opponents!

As 
Lives of the Great Masters are the True Examples for me,
let me too for a moment see this life as limited with its
Occasional Downfalls at the back of a Paralyzing Fear within
and the day my mind firms up 
To fight out this Monster Fear within me
thus partially getting off the influence of glamorous life around,
Is truly the day in my life I've dedicated for a Worthy Cause
and further celebrate the same as the right beginning
Thru' a certain Self Sacrifice and Realistic Living
to the max extent feasible!
