Wisdom – Be like the Pencil

be-like-a-pencilThe pencil maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.

“There are five things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be.”

  1. You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand.
  2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you will need it to become a better pencil.
  3. You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.
  4. The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.
  5. On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in his heart.

Now replacing the place of the pencil with you; always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

  1. You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God’s hand. And allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess.
  2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems, but you’ll need it to become a stronger person.
  3. You will be able to correct mistakes you might make or grow through them.
  4. The most important part of you will always be what’s on the inside.
  5. On every surface you walk, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation.

Everyone is like a pencil… created for a unique and special purpose. By understanding and remembering this, let us proceed with our life by having a meaningful purpose.

Maa by Munawwar Rana

#1
Meri khwahish hai ki main phir se farishta ho jaun
maa’n se is tarah liptun ki bachcha ho jaun

#2
Labon par uske kabhi bad’dua nahi hoti,
bas ek maa’n hai jo kabhi khafa nahi hoti…

#3
Is tarah mere gunahon ko wo dho deti hai,
maa’n bahut gusee mein hoti hai to ro deti hai…

#4
Duaen MAA ki pohchaane ko milo-mil jati hai,
ke jab pardesh jane ke liye beta nikalta hai.

#5
Jab bhi kashti meri sailab mein aa jaati hai
maa’n dua karti hui khwaab mein aa jaati hai

#6
tere daman mein sitare hain to hongein ai falak
mujhko mere maa’n ki maili oodhni acchi lagi

#7
woh to likha ke laai hai kismat mein jaagna
maa’n kaise so sakegi ki beta safar mein hai

#8
jara si baat hai lekin hawaa ko kon samjhaaye ,
ki meri maa’n diye se mere liye kaajal banaati hai

#9
Maine bulandiyon ke har nishaan ko chuaa…
Jab maa ne god mein uthaya to aasman ko chuaa!

#10
ye aisa karz hai jise mai ada kar hi nahi sakta,
mai jab tak ghar naa lautoon,meri maa ‘nsajde me rehti hai

#11
Sakht Raahon me bhi aasaan safar lagta hai…
Yeh meri maa’ ki duaaon ka asar lagta hai…

#12
kisii ko ghar milaa hisse meN yaa koii dukaaN aaii
maiN ghar meN sabse chhoTaa thaa mere hisse meN maa’n aaii

#13
Ae andhere dekhle munh tera kala hogaya
Maa’n ne aankhein khol di gahr me ujala hogaya
