Inner World

Answer Within


At the stroke of midnight hour I stopped my work in order to take a break from my hectic schedule. I looked outside the window and saw the serene world from the 18th floor; it wasn’t the first time, but today I felt something different. I was not in a hurry to get back to my work, in fact I wanted to stay there and listen to someone strange in me. My thoughts went back home to find my wife and my son trying to sleep, tired of waiting for me long.

“You have become a workaholic!”

“I am a renowned lawyer, if I start thinking like this I may lose my clients…. You will never understand how tough it is to establish and then maintain that career successfully”

“I can understand but our son needs your love and company more than anything else.”

Under the influence of my profession I kept on chasing the mirage of success persistently…..

Suddenly I felt that I could listen honestly to myself and differentiate between what was right and not so right.  Seemed to me like an overnight transformation.

The serenity and silence in the atmosphere filled my heart with a desire which I would dream during my struggling period.

My mind gave up in front of my heart and I was ready to leave for home.

While driving back home I felt that I was entering the freedom zone where there were no boundaries of false beliefs.

As I entered there, I realized how could I be successful as a professional, if I am not successful as a person?


We all have the answers for our problems, what we need is a perfect environment where this session can take place to become a hit.
