Who am I and why do I exist? How did I appear here and where am I going? Is it possible that I have already been in this world before? Can I know myself and the universe? Why does man suffer and is it possible to avoid suffering? How can one find peace, pleasure, and blessing? How can I attain calmness, satisfaction, and happiness?
Who am I? At first glance, it’s a simple looking question and seems equally simple to answer. Most often, I’ll start answering this question by listing off things about myself – my age, what I do for a living, how many children I have, and so on. But do those things truly define who I am? What about my hobbies, interests and behavior? Once I started thinking about this ‘simple’ question a little more, I quickly recognized, it’s a lot more difficult than I thought – and I found it to be a difficult one to answer.
Many children in the world die each and every day due to sickness and many other complicated illnesses. Street children wander without any hope. I wish I could find a way. I’m Sangita Rana, born in Rajasthan. In my life, I’ve always dreamt and tried to help people and I think it’s what I was created for. Believe me, we are living in a world of corruption, a world where people kill each other each and every day. I have faith in God and I trust that with him all things are possible.
I’m more than willing to change the lives of people who are judged yet they are innocent, the lives of street children, the lives of orphans and widows. The power is in God’s hands and the ability is in my hands: if changing lives is my dream, then I should stay focused on my job. I live because I have a goal to fulfill and that’s changing lives.
Success comes from ‘cans’ not from ‘cant’s’.
We shouldn’t allow anything to be an obstacle. We should see everything as a stepping stone to victory. I know that life is not easy, especially when situations become more difficult. Many people wish they were never born, some even curse the day they were born, others even feel like committing suicide. My life taught me to stop blaming others and to take responsibility for every area of my life.
We should all learn that even if we don’t have much we should give 100 percent of the little we have and God will make up the difference.
I am a woman. And I am a former baby and a future skeleton, and I am a distant future pile of dust. I am also an Aquarius.
I am “sister” and I am “daughter” and I am “mother”.
I am trustworthy and loyal.
I dislike saying “I am trying to find myself” because my identity is not lost, it just needs more uncovering. Fortunately for me, what I love to do and want to be helps me uncover more about myself. I want to be a writer. I may not end up an expert writer but I will always write, even if I am the only one interested in my work, because writing is my self-reflection.
Every day my experience and knowledge increase, and I learn more about myself. Each time I write what is in my head as honestly as I can, another piece of the identity puzzle is revealed.
At last I would like to write only this
“Courage is the stamp of spirituality. Courage comes when you love yourself for who you are.”
