Ninaipathellam Nadanthuvittaal… if all thoughts become reality

November 25, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

If all your thoughts become reality, there is no God!
If you keep thinking about what already happened, there will never be peace of mind!
A concluded story does not continue in God’s books!
A continued story does not end, in a man’s house!

A heart with thousand gates, in it rise a thousand thoughts
Someone comes, someone goes… their comings and goings never noticed
If just one inhabits inside, there is no suffering
While the one stays, if another comes in, there will be never be peace of mind

Where life begins, where and how it ends,
this is the path, this is the journey…  no one knows
The paths keep changing and finally the journey ends
if the changes are understood, then one becomes sober

This is the translation (as near as it can be for me) of a famous tamil song “Ninaipathellam Nadanthu vittaal” from the movie “Nenjil oru Aalayam”.
