Whatever you are seeking is already seeking you !

Whatever you are seeking is already seeking for you !

It is about what we think about all the time. The innate thing within us that makes us who we are. Sometimes we may wait or sometimes we may rush. But our compass is already redirected towards it. We cannot know when we are going towards it or when we are in the process of it, but when we reach there or we pass that point, we can look back and say for our story that something we happen to become was meticulously laid down by series of events and occurences which make it sound that what we were seeking was already making its way towards us.

That’s about it.

A mix of psychology, philosophy, observation of life, function of human mind and their abilities. It sums up it all.

But this is about deeper things in life and not about the regular stuff that one may think to achieve or possess. It’s about those one or two things that makes a whole lot of difference in someone’s life.

And yes, it’s a beautiful quote.

To be able to actually believe it or just know it and traverse the journey to all the odds, is a matter of golden heart and mind.

Bundle of CONFIDENCE with LOVE…!!!

by DILINIWIJESINGHE

They are fighting a battle, a fight against a silent killer. Not every one of them is lucky enough to beat the enemy but the fight itself is an act of bravery. These beautiful four letters -“H O P E”- are the only things that drive them to keep fighting because the pain is real and so is the hope! Do you know in every three minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer and over 175,000 of children and adolescents are currently been treated every year for childhood cancer??

Even for today it’s a mystery how these little kids become victims of this disease as adults have their own reasons such as alcohol, smoking, drugs etc. When a little one is diagnosed with cancer it is a battle that the whole family is fighting for. With the advancement in the medical industry the survival rates of childhood cancer has been increased from 10% to 90% yet a life spent by a kid is tough to stand strong. The average age of a kid to become a victim of cancer is age 6 and because of this disease they lose the opportunity of discovering, exploring and feeling the beauty of world, getting new experiences and friends.

When I get to visit these little kids at Cancer Hospital, Maharagama, Sri Lanka, it was very painful to see these small kids and young blood of the country suffering yet fighting bravely against this silent killer. Most of them rode tricycles in the special play area built for them instead of their own home garden, they knew the names of their chemo instead of their classmates, they have the friends for their lives on the either side of their hospital beds and doctors & nurses were family to them. And yes when we get to see their laugh it makes us melt, their strength makes grown people cry and when you see a child fights cancer it changes your life forever.

That is the moment that we realize only the medicines cannot cure these little souls but should give them the sense of hope too. That we should convince them yes cancer is an ugly disease but beauty of life after cancer is worth fighting for…!! After a terrific battle as at today 90% of the kids will recover from cancer but with side effects such as infertility, lung failures, and permanent hair loss etc. These things will hinder their confidence of presenting themselves to the society after the recovery. Mainly when they loss their hair permanently.

There is where we can play a significant role in their lives. Although all of us are not medical majors we can still be a part of their courageous journey to protect their confidence. Just one way of making them confident and happy individuals in the society is that donating our hair to make them look good after the battle they fought. In a world where nothing is permanent and where we don’t belong even to us, I believe the greatest display of love is not making bonds with materialistic things but in the sacrifice we make towards a needy stranger just to see their smile.

The happiness of giving others a smile, loving them unconditionally without even them asking or without expecting anything in return, cannot be explained by words but should be felt by hearts! Therefore the piece of hair you donate them won’t be just a piece of hair for the little kids but a “BUNDLE OF CONFIDENCE” to face the society.

In giving confidence to these angels there are no limits as in whether you are a guy or a girl as long as your intentions are pure. Because I, myself have male friends growing their hair just to pass the confidence and happiness to these kids irrespective of societal critics. And also one gorgeous young lady once told me it takes one brave person to donate their hair but the happiness that person gets when they see the smiles of those kids will last a lifetime.

Thanks to that young lady I was convinced that I should not miss the chance of making these kids happy because life is too short and happiness is too rare. So today as a happy donor yes I’ve realized the richest people in the world are those who give more than take; because giving fills your life with things that money can’t buy…!!!!

This is to all the bravest cancer fighters and to all the brave donors of “BUNDLES OF CONFIDENCE” around the world.💝

Best movie to watch during lockdown – Tito And The Birds (2018)

Tito and the Birds (2018) is a movie about humans, birds, fear and outbreaks. The relevance of this movie to the pandemic and how fear spreads through our society is captured beautifully.

Consistently perserve what you believe. Tito is a little kid who is inspired by his father to invent, experiment and follow his passion. He feels that he is the reason his father has left them and he wants to bring his father back. He works on the only way he thinks it’s possible by building the machine. Because of his constant believe in such thoughts, it helps him to fight the trouble that lands in their city.

Always be loving, caring and connected. He is always caring for his father, mother and friends. He is concerned about the birds too. He goes far enough into the troubles for protecting and curing his friend. He fights all his while for bringing back his father. His friend, she is always a protector and motivator. The combination of friendship, youth and clean heart is always a winner.

Follow your culture, stories and lessons from life. Tito is inspired by stories and observations. He understands things from different perspective. Sometimes even his Mom does not understand him and scolds him. The cure to fix the ongoing epidemic is hidden in the past and he is able to connect it which his father couldn’t. Being so different is not so bad afterall.

Stay alert, stay safe and stay active. They are little yet very smart. They are active and naive so there isn’t something they think they shouldn’t do. Sometimes they land into bigger troubles because of it, but their self-belief, alertness, bonding with others and selflessness makes them do things that are not seen in everyday life. It makes them some kind of a superhero. Always preserve such feelings in young kids. Motivate and encourage them to face life as it comes and equip them with the resources and mindset to deal with them.

Dreamers are achievers. Dreaming is considered to be not so good in popular culture but some of the great works in literature, science and arts have come from people who were dreamers. Often there is a dream which comes in sleep or some that keeps them awake. People fall their dreams relentlessly to fulfill them. Tito has a dream and it is the key. Even Po has a dream and turns out to be the key in Kung Fu Panda series.

Fear is part of our life but we must always overcome it and let it pass through. There are so many lessons that one can see and learn from this movie. It has so many life lessons about family, dreams, friendship, troubles and culture. There are amazing conversations, motivating lines and captivating dialogues.

Tennis is more than just sports, it’s a religion

Tennis, lawn tennis is one of the top grossing global sports with Grand Slams, WTA tours, ATP tours, Challenger tours and friendly matches. Tennis is played between two players in singles match and four players in doubles match. It could be men’s single, women’s single, men’s doubles, women’s doubles or mixed doubles. But that’s just not all. There is more to it than meets the eye.

Tennis is a saga. There are million dollars prize money, world tours, tournaments in many countries, schedules, sponsors, umpires, ball boys, referees and fans across the world. But is tennis just about the game, sports, winning and losing, finals, tickets, tours, locations or money. I believe tennis is much more than just a game, it is a religion, like no other.

Tennis teaches you discipline. Sports often is not about the games, rounds or matches. It is about the number of hours you have put in practice and the various strategies and tactics that you have learnt. Tennis is an individual sports. It is about standing tall all through the game from the start till the end. At any moment if you slip, rest, loose focus or get carried away, then the tables can turn for you.

Tennis teaches you dedication. It is about getting up in the morning and training for hours. It is about perfecting your serve, your return, backhand, slice or your volley. It is about practicing to approaching the net or your movement across the court. You must strengthen your muscles, your legs, your biceps, your mind and your body. You cannot be lazy or late.

You must train, train and train only to become so good at it, that when you get into the court, you are most of the time feeling a natural flow. Otherwise you may win a match but you will not win a tournament. You may be a good player but you might not become a champion. As they say a champion is who has trained hard when it felt it cannot be done any more.

Tennis teaches you resilience.

Tennis teaches you simplicity.

Tennis teaches you about respect, honor and dignity.

Tennis is timeless. People from all walks of life and other sports come to witness sporting events greatest moments in the finals of Grand Slams. It is about witness history in the making. It is as if you are looking at the finest qualities of human when put through the toughest challenge. It takes the seniors to their era and make them relieve those moments. It ignites the spirit of other sportsmen. It inspires the next generation to become not just a great glorified champion but a true honorable sportsman who will live in the memories of people in the times to come. It is about becoming Immortal.

Tennis messes with your mind, it haunts you and it makes you want to scream out loud but at the same time it takes you through the silence of a river in plains, deep forests and dark nights to awaken your inner spirits about life, passion, fighting spirit, grit, compassion and humanity. It takes you to the heights of a mountain and then throws you down to the depths of oceans, teaching you to be strong and humble at the same time.

Tennis is life and life is tennis. All the noise, hate, love, pressure, challenges, race towards tournaments, matches, rivals, competitors, events and controversies create heaviness in your heart and mind. Your family comes to your rescue. Tennis families are one of the best families in the world. Your coach, your physician, your friends are your strength in good times and bad times.

Tennis is one man show, individual sport. You are alone in the court and it teaches about sustainability, independence and self-work. It makes you go through the tough rides in some of the greatest moments in tennis history and as you are making them, you have to hold your nerves and put on a show.

Tennis turns young boys into men. Tennis teaches you to drink through the pain of lose and rising up from failures. It teaches you to gulp through your lose in face and stand up on the podium to speak about it. It teaches you to treat both the lose and victory alike. It is like the verse from Rudyard Kipling’s poem “If”.

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;   

Rudyard Kipling

Tennis is about sportsmanship and more. Tennis teaches you to be good sports person, a good partner, a good parent, a good friend, a good child and overall a good human being. It teaches you to be good friends. Tennis is about becoming the better version of yourself. Tennis teaches you about life, whether you a player, commentator or spectator. It takes you on a journey of life. It turns young boys into young men, who inspire generations of human current and past likewise. Tennis is about sportsmanship.

If good life is about living to be a good human and spreading love, care, positivity around the world. Then Tennis is one such part of life that teaches you to live it completely.
