What trust can do



You are known by several names – God, Destiny, Fate, but attaching names to you is just not enough. I prefer to attach value.

Accepting you as my guide, my teacher and my well-wisher has been the best thing I’ve ever done.

People thank you, blame you, pray to you but all that they really need to do is TRUST you. That is all that you've ever required of me and you have given me so much in return.

You didn’t teach the sand of the desert to absorb water, but you’ve taught me to love the feeling of it slipping through my hands – one that the mud of the forest cannot offer.

You made me realize that there would not have been a world for me if it were not for these eyes, this nose, this mouth, these ears, this skin, this mind, this body, this heart, this soul.  Any one amiss and the world would be incomplete for me. So it’s not really the World that needs to change.

I’m NOT JEALOUS because I know you give each that suits best.

I’m NOT HOSTILE to those who sent troubles for me because I know they were only your plans to help me become stronger.

I’m NOT REGRETFUL because you brought lovers to me and sent them far, for I know you intend to put each to test and make only the most devoted one my partner for life.

I’m NOT SORROWFUL when I don’t clear an exam because I know it’s so that I think beyond it and pay attention to something that I forgot to notice and something that’s more beneficial.

I’m NOT BOASTFUL because it is you that have made me all that I am and you who provide me with all that I have.

I’m AMBITIOUS because you have laid down for me the pleasant and the treacherous paths so that I have every chance to enjoy my journey and prove myself worthy of what it has to offer.

I’m HOPEFUL  because each moment, you unfold either a surprise or an adventure for me, and whatever it be, I know it’s getting me closer to the mission of my life.

I’m GRATEFUL to each and everyone for playing their assigned roles you gave them and in the best possible manner.

I’m BENEVOLENT because when I see people suffering, I know there’s a reason why I’m on the other side.

I’m CONFIDENT that the strongest force will always stay besides me.

its my first day on this site and on your blog as well (actually my fist blog when i clicked on a tab of my screen which is "next blog").
I, blame god,not to do TRUST on him. I’m JEALOUS because I know he give each that i do not suits at all. I’m NOT HOSTILE to those who sent troubles for me but hostile to god if he sent troubles for me.

Tanvi said...

Forlorn, Wow! my blog your first blog....I feel lucky!!

God is vast, and so are His plans. It is often beyond our capacity to understand His grand plans.
But once you manage to do it, life's low moments are easier to bear. Try it, it works!

Thanks for visiting.

r u a lobbyist of god.
i know god is immense, i was perceiving it since i was born. but he may not be wishful for someone (at least not for me).

LoverS! So Many!!
Its true that God will make only the most devoted one your partner for life... But I think, it also depends on, who, you are equally devoted & loyal to...

forlorn said...

my dear anonymous ur lover does not means that he or she should be ur life partner(spouse). i think our parents are the best lovers in our whole life and somewhere we are not loyal to them. so it does not means that u must be devoted to ur lover if he or she wants devotion for his or her love then it is not love. devotion comes after love.

Tanvi said...

Forlorn, I do not intend to force anything upon anyone. Force can bring only fear. But I will be glad if I can instill even a little hope and trust, because I know how much it has helped me in my life. Like I said, I tried,it really works, and I have no reasons to lie.

Tanvi said...

Anonymous, first, anonymity is so fascinating because the one who claims to be anonymous is usually the more familiar than the un-anonymous!

Second, I realized I am only a mortal, bound to make mistakes, so, I surrendered myself to the Ultimate Power. I shall be loyal to Him and his decision.

Adding to what Forlorn said, my parents were assigned to me purely by God, and I shall always be loyal to them, more than anyone else.

Gyanban said...

It s not fair you have such visuals on your blog...one has to keep coming back...:-)

Tanvi said...

Gyanban, mission accomplished! ;)

forlorn said...

its up to u.. no body can force u to do this may be its with ur parents or anyone else.

I meant something totally different...

@forlorn: Please don't confuse between Lover as in Life Partner, with Lover as in Parents. Cause that line was meant for a Life Partner not Parents. Anyway I am not here to clear anyone's concepts of life. To Each His Own.

@Tanvi: I wish i was not anonymous to you, but unfortunately as you don't know me, I am...
But since you missed the point in my serving about being devoted and loyal... There is nothing left to say...

Tanvi said...

Anonymous, I did say about being loyal and devoted. I said, I would be, to the one who shall be 'chosen' for me. :)

Anonymous said...

No Doubt you will be loyal and devoted to the lover (as in the one who loves you as his wife not mother LOL!!!!) chosen for you... But the point is will you be able to instantly develop love for whoever the chosen one is?
So either you love them all, so you are confident about being able to instantly be in love with that person or you will try to love that person or force yourself) or you don't love them, but you want them to love you, and when the judgment day comes you will be instantly able to love who ever it is... Interesting... Very Interesting...

P.S. I Love You

Tanvi said...

The fascinating anonymity!

Anonymous said...

Don't make yourself believe that you know me, just because you are following the breadcrumbs...

Death is better than being anonymous to the only one i should never be anonymous to.

But unfortunately, I am and may die anonymous to you, cause many have eyes yet they are blind, many have ears yet they are deaf, many have a heart yet they don't feel, many have a soul yet they are dead...

P.S. I Will always Love You...
