You Decide


The world
is a reflection
of yourself
Whatever you are
the world would seem
to be
that too

If you are
sad and restless
jealous and angry
dejected and in despair
that is what
the world
would seem
to be.

If you are
in agreement
with yourself
if you are at ease
if you are joyous
if you are at peace
if you are happy
the world
would seem
to be
a paradise.

How you want
your world
to look

You decide!

    you have taken the decision on behalf of everyone chandra ji, didn't Coleridge say:
    we receive but what we give
    and in our life alone does nature live
    ours is her wedding garments ours her shroud! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Often what we see around us is a projection of our own inner self! To a happy man, everything he sees will be beautiful!
    Yes, it is upto us whether we should land in paradise or in hell! (Report) Reply
