A friend once asked Samuel B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph,
“professor, did you ever come to a stage when you did not know what to do
next, while working?”
“OH YES! More than once”, Morse replied.
“And at such times, what did you do next?”
“I must answer you in confidence”, replied the inventor,
“but it is a matter of which, the public knows nothing. Whenever I could
not see my way clearly, I knelt down prayed to god for light and
“And did light and understanding come?” asked the friend.
“Yes”, declared Morse.“And may I tell you that when flattering honours came
to me from America and Europe, on account of my invention, which bears my
name, I never felt I deserve them. I had made a valuable application of
electricity, not because I was superior to other men, but solely because
god, who meant it for making, must reveal it to someone, and was pleased to
reveal it to me”.
Similarly, in our lives too, there will come occasions, when we do not know
what to do next and how to proceed. Sometimes, face illness, and other
times failures, pain and desperation too.
All such experiences are part and parcel of everyone’s life. Just love
yourself and your fellow beings.
Remember, always trust in god and spend time in prayer, at least 30 mins a
day, and you’ll see the change. Then, as you move on in life, you will find
impediments cleared and problems solved, enabling you to succeed. That’s
all from my side and good luck with your life and what you make of it,
because remember, god is always watching.
