The words you are going to read come straight from my heart. It required no thinking; it sprouted up instantaneously in my mind. It’s about PARENTS. We all love our parents and are always thankful to them. Aren’t we? Doesn’t matter what situations we have been through, we always end up in drawing ourselves towards them. There’s something that never lets this bond tear apart; not even a little. It’s something more than a relation; the word ‘relation’ can’t define its true nature. There may be times when we hurt them intentionally or unintentionally. But have you ever noticed that when we hurt them, it disturbs us, not them. They are always ready to accept; even our unexpected words and our undesirable actions. Have you ever wondered that no matter how your parents have been in character in their young ages; they are always kind and caring when they become PARENTS! What brings so much change? Do you think it is because they think it is customary to love and take care of their children? Do you think they fear GOD’s wrath and are compelled to be so? Do you think they consider their affection and care as ‘duties’ to be performed or ‘rituals’ to be followed to keep GOD happy? Can you really ever know what they actually think about you? Most of you must have been haunted by such questions at some point of your life. But the main question is, “why is there a need to know if you already get what you really want from them?” – Love!
“Our parents are always supportive, loving and caring!” Not all of you believe that, do you? Most of you might have experienced otherwise. There may be many instances when you feel that your parents always deny your actions, your ideas, your words and even your beliefs. You may feel that they are always trying to ‘restrict’ you, to bind you in chains. But there’s something that you don’t know and which I’m going to tell you now! In general, the term ‘parent’ refers to an individual who takes proper care of her young ones by nourishing them, protecting them from harm, and teaching them the good things that they themselves have experienced in their lives. That’s just a general definition; and definitions are just definitions unless they are interpreted into some meaningful words that have some significance in our lives. So, here’s my interpretation! “Parents are hands of GOD”. What do we do with our hands? We can do innumerable tasks with our hands. We can write, climb, grasp, hold, lift, eat, manipulate, express, help, scold, slap, clap, appreciate, fetch, and do so many things with our hands. Now read my interpretation and see what relation you can make of it.
If parents are hands of GOD, then:
PARENTS write our fate, PARENTS make us climb and reach the heights, PARENTS teach us to grasp good thoughts, PARENTS hold our hands when we are about to fall, PARENTS lift us up when we are down, PARENTS feed us with their love, PARENTS manipulate (guide) us so that we are proceeding in the right direction, PARENTS express their emotions for us, PARENTS help us at every step of our life, PARENTS scold us when we are wrong, PARENTS slap us when we cross the limits, PARENTS clap for us when we perform well, PARENTS appreciate us when we show our uniqueness, PARENTS find us wherever we are!
So, if parents are hands of GOD, then it must be ‘us’ who are wrong somewhere in believing otherwise. The Creator knows the absolute truth; what’s wrong and what’s right! He uses his hands for moulding His children into something that He truly desires. PARENTS are hands of GOD; they mould us into a shape so unique from others but original in character. Doesn’t matter what character we possess, we are always loved by our parents the same way as everyone else is! There is a fundamental energy that makes us ‘realize’ and ‘aware’ of our kindness when we become parents. This fundamental energy is the Creator Himself. He is the one who, through his ‘hands’, shapes us into reality; the same way we create things with our hands.
So, next time you think that that you are being ‘restricted’ by your parents, that means you are actually trying to break a bond that is unbreakable. Every time you consider their ‘guidance’ or their ‘decision’ as ‘restriction’, that means you are leaving the hands of GOD and in doing such you can’t become anything; not even a HUMAN.
But this doesn’t mean that parents are always right in making decisions for us. They can be wrong too! But as their children, as a family, don’t you think it is our duty to tell them what we actually feel. A family lives happy when we all express ourselves with honesty. If you express yourself, your parents will know your every desire and they will give their best to make you achieve the same. This is exactly what our own hands do! Isn’t it? When we wish for something, we use our hands to act in the direction of achieving it, and finally we grasp it! Similarly, our parents’ guide us in the direction of achieving our dreams/desires and help us grasp the same.
Always wish that the hands of GOD stay on your shoulders to guide you, to love you and to shape you into originality!
