Bondage

A slave of your own.

Let’s have a journey today. Hold tight, its like a different journey. Towards where? let’s see.

A man. Brutally tied up. We may can’t imagine the pain which he is having and experiencing right now. A mental condition is like a slave who doesn’t have any option other than being submissive. He has to walk until his destination comes. The lonely road with dry trees at the sides of road which gives him more and more feeling of loneliness and emptiness. He doesn’t have any option in your life, no opportunities, no hopes, no life. Only he has to do is walk, keep walking until the destination comes. He is unable to have support even with his hands because he is tied up. Probably he is running from something. Something which he is scared about. In his mind he doesn’t have even a single hope to reach his destination. It is like his tied hands has made his mind tied up to think anything. He cannot think anything, he cannot save himself from this scary journey, he cannot make himself to reach at his destination, probably he doesn’t even know that his destination can really give him new hope? he just keeps running with tied mind with bound thoughts, he himself is a slave of his own. He cannot even think that either he can release himself or not.

Are you guys are slave? slave of yourself? your mind? or do you want to be one?

Ask me, you are! shocking? trembling? The truth is always outside your circle of thoughts. In real life, we are like that man who is tied up but already ran away but still not able to think that he can release himself. Do you know the reason? he has accepted that he is a slave. His tied hands made his mind also a bound prisoner of a jail which imprisoned his mind such a way that it doesn’t even think outside this world.

In our life, sometimes or rather i would say almost all the time we accept that our mind or we ourselves cannot be successful beyond certain limit, we accept that we cannot do beyond some limit. I want to ask this straight forward question is it true?

Choice is yours, whether you want to be a slave of your own like the man of above story, or you want to be a man who can think out of his conventional circle of thought to achieve impossible success.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
