The Island Of Feelings.

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge.and all of the others including, Love.One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all started constructing the boats and left.Except for Love.Love was the only one who stayed.Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat.Love said, “Richness, can you take me with you?”Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat.There is no place here for you.”Love decided to ask Pride who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. “Pride, please help me!”“I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,” Pride answered.Sadness was close by so Love asked, “Sadness, let me go with you.”“Oh, Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come, Love, I will take you.” It was an elder.So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going.When they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way.Realizing how much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder,“Who Helped me?”“It was Time,” Knowledge answered.“Time?” asked Love.“But why did Time help me?” Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.”Similarly, we have also forgotten our love for the Lord.The love is always inside our hearts waiting to be discovered by us. And we all are trying to take shelter from the various worldly aspects of our lives.Like money, fame, position, success, and so on.But at the time of difficulty, when we would be about to sink in this ocean of stress, troubles, sadness, quarrel & hypocrisy, none of these aspects like money, success, happiness etc, etc would come to our rescue and save us.And that would be the moment when the time would reveal our forgotten love for god.Because ultimately when no one can help us, we have to bow down to Lord and beg for help.As lord Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita, "I am the Time himself".And at that moment, only the Lord will save us from all distress of our lives.So why not we take shelter of the Lord from the beginning itself and save ourselves from sinking in this material ocean of repetitive birth & death and sufferings for eternity.And that we can do by simply chanting the Holy names of the Lord & making our lives successful... #sjoshi
