Taoist Story “Maybe”

Steady Wise


There is a Taoist story of an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically. “May be,” the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. “How wonderful,” the neighbors exclaimed. “May be,” replied the old man.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. “May be,” answered the farmer.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. “May be,” said the farmer.

The definition of my name “Meera”

Ever since I was a child, I kept on wondering what was the significance behind my name ? what did it mean ?, and now I have found the answer.  Once upon a time, I had to visit India, because I was told that the healthcare they provide is efficient, and that they have qualified doctors there. I remember that I went to the hospital to check my brain signals if they were normal or not, and of course I had to uncover my hair in front of the doctor who was a man (P.S, I am Muslim, and I am required to wear a garment to cover my hair). I was so nervous, because I had to uncover my hair that even the doctor felt how nervous I was. He tried to ease my nervousness by telling me a story….

I don’t quite remember the whole events of the story, but I do remember that he told me that the heroine of the story was called “Meera”, and Indians usually called her “Meera-bai”. The doctor said to me, “Do you know the meaning of your beautiful name ?”, he said, There was a goddess named “Meera-bai”, and she had a great singing voice. He told me that this Goddess devoted all her time for Lord Krishna, and as far as I remember, he also told me that she was singing, and writing poems for him. The doctor told me that if the people of India knew of my name, they would start worshiping me. This story gave me a good definition of my name, and it made me love it more than I used to do before.


If I could write you a love letter.

Sleeping got hard for me…
How would I sleep if you are always on my mind ?
It feels like you are the only thing that keeps wandering through my head…
Why is it that when you fall in love, you keep thinking about nothing but that special someone ?
Why does it hurt so bad to miss that special someone ?
They say that you are truly in love if it hurts you so bad…
Sometimes I feel like ending all of this, I feel like ending us, our dreams, and all our hopes….
I just hate how it hurts
It hurts to think….
I can’t help but wonder, how will our love story end ? Will the ending be so beautiful ? Or will it just end with a heartbreak ?
You know I love you, right ?
You know I want you…
Please be mine…..




If you ask anyone “how can you define happiness ?”, you would realize that each one has his own definition to happiness. Well, If I were to answer this question, I would say “happiness can be either something, someone, or even a place”. Some people find happiness when they draw, or read a great book, or even if they exercise. Others can find happiness if they went to a specific place, let’s say the beach for example, or the spa. Finally, some people find happiness when they are around other people. I would like to share with you the things I do to become happy

•Distance yourself from those people that have a bad attitude.

•Go out, pamper yourself, go to a spa, or a beach resort.

This might not work for everybody, but when I distance myself from people, and when I do what I like to do the most, that’s when I become so happy
