There is nothing new about ‘waiting’ in waiting rooms. But this one is different – because often you get roped in an animated discussion and the time just flies. How come? It’s because the people waiting pen down their favorite quote on a white board kept in a corner. The quotes generally are inspirational and the discussions interesting. The quote yesterday was in Hindi – there were many interpretations. I am not sure if I can translate it’s meaning correctly in English. Read below what it says – so what do you make of it?
I will attempt some kind of a translation of the verse. It is far from perfect and may even dilute the effect of the simple wisdom hidden in it. Here goes:
God (Almighty) says
“You do what you want to do,
But you get what I want for you to get,
If you do what I want you to do,
Then what happens will be what you want it to happen.”
The moral of the verse in simple terms is that we must listen to our inner voice (Gods voice), and do what He tells us to do. Not to follow materialistic attractions us or things which misguide us.
Translations always do not work. I am not entirely satisfied with my translation but hope you get a gist of it.
One of my blogger friends Pamela gave a better translation below 🙂 which I am inserting here:
“You always do, what you want to do.
But you always get, what I want you to get.
Now, you start doing what I want you to do.
And watch! You shall get what you want to get..”
Thanks Pamela 🙂
