Hope


These days I am getting a new hobby, a new indulgence. It is so much more entertaining than watching TV or whatever. It is watching my nephew Amalan live his first months. Whenever I look at him I get reminded of the haunting lines of Khalil Gibran:

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, "Speak to us of Children."

And he said:

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;

For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

-The Prophet Khalil Gibran

I wish somebody shows this to all parents including mine. Cos the only way this world moves forward is through the spoils of the young. And the only way this happens is through change. Growth is change. Expecting our children to like us is the greatest curse on them. Doing so means we accept the status quo and shut up. That's a sacrilege to the intelligence of the humanity. Hence our children are our only hope. They are a huge opportunity for us to grow because they don't come prepackaged with our stupid assumptions. They come as an empty cup. And it is only to an empty cup the river of life flows forth.

Having said this, I humbly acknowledge that stating the above when I am young is infinitely more easy than been on the other side of the equation and live the talk. J

Awesome words of truth, but seems like a very difficult task to be followed in real life may be.

Its very true about the last lines, being on the other side of the river is a tougher task than to proclaim standing on the shore giving ways to cross the river.

Whatever it is, I accept that children are thrusted with more unwanted ideas and beliefs than what is required. May be this is why there is so much of confusion around.

Gr8! I have heard quotes from Khalil Gibran but never fell in love with his words as much as I fell with the words u have mentioned here.

"Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man,' Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly, he'll basically give you a hard time. He'll be bigger, faster, and more muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, But, he'll be pretty good in the sack."
"I can put up with that," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
"Yeah well, he's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, there is one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
:D :D :D
