Cherokee Legend  - The Making of a MAN (From an email I received from a friend and thought of sharing it)


Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth's rite of Passage?

His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him alone.  He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it.  He cannot cry out for help to anyone.



Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.

He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own.

The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him . Maybe even some human might do him
harm. The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could  become a man!
Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed hisblindfold.

It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him.   
He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.


 
We, too, are never alone. 
Even when we don't know it, God is watching over  us, Sitting on the stump beside us. 
When trouble comes, all we have to do  is reach out to Him.


If you liked this story, pass it on.
If not, you took off your blindfold  before dawn.

Moral of the story:
Just because you can't see God,
Doesn't mean He is not there.
"For we walk by faith, not by sight."

Is it wrong to dream?
To try and catch the moonlit beam.
Is it wrong to to want to shine?
With no penny in pocket nor a dime?  ......

"Walking Alone"
I am alone walking in the dark.
Faltering steps, groping against walls of stone
Searching for that tiny ray of light.
Unmindful of the fact that I’m walking alone.

Faith needs no definition nor tantras.
Yet it is a feeling divine.
When all else leaves you – its faith that helps you shine."

“Break even yet”                                               4th May’2009

Words unspoken yet.
Deeds undone yet.
Dreams unfulfilled yet.
Lands untouched yet.

Emotions unexpressed yet.
Ambitions, Quests not met yet.
Yet this word alludes me yet.
When will I break the unexpected, unspoken and unfulfilled?
And undo what has been expressed.

Emerging out of my quest victorious yet.
When will I break even yet ?
