We may have an idea that we are thinking in the right way. Charlie Chaplin has quoted that you will never find a rainbow if you are looking down. Let us see what it means.
He is asking the little girl to look up the sky, while swinging, to see the rainbow and advising her as to not to look down, as there is no rainbow found. Life may be fearful for anybody. Sometimes rain may come and sometimes sunshine may come. Happiness and sorrow are very common in real life. That is really a beautiful thing in life for everyone.
We have to look pessimistically our life. There are so many people living in poor condition than us. God might have given many good opportunities for us to come up. We should not feel bad for anything or for anybody. We have to keep our attitude looking up with our eyes open to see. Then only rainbows will be found.
Sometimes bad luck may chase us wherever we go. We should not get dejected. We have to withstand the storm and they only we can see rainbow in our life. Just like passing clouds, troubles may occur then and there. We have to cross the situation firmly. If we got struck up, there won’t be any progress. Our willpower only helps us to cross the ocean of life.
We should not degrade ourselves for any reason. The people around us may say anything they think. We should know correctly about ourselves. Small drawbacks and mistakes may pull us down. We should not give up our efforts. We should anticipate any worst situation. We should keep alternate plans in mind for success. Then only rainbow will flash in our life.
In our life we might have set some goals to achieve. Even after sincere efforts, we may not be able to achieve a goal. At the same time, someone close to us, may try to achieve the same goal. We may be in a position to help him/her to achieve it. By our help, they can achieve that goal. This is known as being a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.
No matter how it happens, we can all appreciate that life’s moments are not always filled with sunshine. We have not failed in life as we could not achieve that goal. Goad has chosen us for helping someone else for achieving the same goal. We should be happy about it. We should understand that each person we come across is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Whether it is internally or externally, every person we meet is dealing with something that is challenging for him/her.
It is really a blessing for being a rainbow to others and we offer ourselves to them. When we have no belief left in ourselves, sometimes we need somebody else to provide that belief. Sometimes we need a rainbow in a cloud of our own. When we are longing for something and if it is not possible to achieve, God will send a rainbow to us, for fulfilling our desire.
Everyone, not just you, has bad days. Days that are filled with oppressive clouds where the person just can’t see their way out of the darkness. These days, weeks or months may seem unbearable to live through. That is where the rainbow comes in. A rainbow can make the darkest days brighter. You may see a rainbow after a storm passes and no matter how bad the storm was you have a sense of peace that the outcome of it is a beautiful rainbow. You can be someone’s rainbow. Simple as that.
Let us try to be a rainbow for someone else atleast once in our lifetime.
