The beautiful analogy in this story brought me into writing it as a post, where it was illustrated in Paulo Coelho’s book ” Like the Flowing River” Thoughts and reflections with a series of inspiring stories written as eloquently as ever. This is only one of the many great stories, though i truly recommend reading the whole book!

So,Here’s where the inspiration starts :


A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point he asked:

‘Are you writing a story about what we’ve done? Is it a story about me?’
His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson:
I am writing about you, actually, but more important than the words is the pencil I’m using. I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up.’

Intrigued, the boy looked at the pencil. It didn’t seem very special.
‘But it’s just like any other pencil I’ve ever seen!’

‘That depends on how you look at things. It has five qualities which, if you manage to hang on them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world.’

‘First quality: you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.’

‘Second quality: now and then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpner. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he’s much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person.

‘Third quality: the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. This means that correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps to keep us on the road to justice.’

‘Fourth quality: what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior, but the graphite inside. So always pay attention to what is happening inside you.’

‘Finally, the pencil’s fifth quality: it always leaves a mark. in just the same way, you should know that everything you do in life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action’

Why i love jogging ,

When i jog i feel the whispers of cold breeze brushing over my face,

When i jog,i appreciate the beauty of nature: the brightness of the sun ,the beauty of the moon,the twinkling of the stars,

When i jog,i can feel my heart’s need to be healthy,pumping more blood and expanding for the sake of keeping me running,

When i jog,i feel the fat burning,burning into ashes,

When i jog,my mind is free,free of all Negative thoughts,problems&worries that can annoy the human kind,

When i jog,i think of how much god has given us blessings that we  fail to appreciate  because of the daily distractions,

When i jog,i feel like jogging forever,to maintain my state of positive thoughts,and forget reality…

Let me just jog,jog forever…
