Will you wear This ?

We  all   have   tons  of  wishes  loaded  in  our little  canoe  of  heart .


Acting  through  the  show  of  life  we  want  to  hide  ourselves  sometime  out  of  fear  ,  joy,  thrill  ,excitement ,anger  , frustration or  just  to  exploration  .

Did  this  happen  to  you  either ?  


Was  there  any  time  when  you  wished  for  being  INVISIBLE  and  do  whatever  you  want.

Being  Human  i  have  all  normal  wishes  for   my  life .

But  being  woman of  east  ask  me  keep  in  boundaries  which  society  has  set  for  me .

From  my teenage   to  until  now  (how bad)  i  want  to  wear  a  magic  cap  about  which  i  used  to  hear  in  our  folk  stories  from  grandma  .A magic  cap  that   can  make  me  invisible  so  i  can  run  on  long  lashing  hilly  roads  like  a  butterfly .

Dance  like  a  mad  with  no  fear   of  any  dirty  look  or  remark.

Run  door  to  door  and  peek    inside  the  house  of  elderly  or  poor  who  may  need  my  help .Yes  i  will  steal  all  the  money  from  leaches ( politicians, businessmen)   of  society  and  will drop  to  the  poor's  home  so  they  can  eat  ,wear and live  properly .


Do   you  want  to  wear  the  magic  cap  and  be  invisible?

What  makes  or  made  you  wish  for  this?

Take  good  care  sweet  people  and  stay   strong  ,positive  and  happy.

God  Bless  You  All!!!

    You are Robin Hood! I'd like to cloak myself and help you. We can run to every place in the world, sit in on meetings where things are decided, go to battlefields where things decided are fought over...and steal the weapons before they are fired. We can remind someone of something important, feed someone, restore something. The question is, why do we have to be invisible to do this? Why does our world require sneaking to do the right thing? Sometimes people don't tell what they really think out of fear.


    From the side bar of your site:

    "If you think you are BIG

    You are thinking very SMALL!

    If you think , you are SOMETHING

    You are NOTHING at all

    Because DRY BARE branch stand with PRIDE ABSOLUTE

    But a GREEN and FRUITFUL BRANCH LEANS upon to it's ROOTS"


    This is beautiful. The world lies to us, but we can see the truth. We can also do what is true. We are not powerless!

    1. thank you for overwhelming words dear Sandi!!!

      For years i used to cry literally for those who could not have food when they are hungry .

      who terrified of rain which will make their roof trembling when i was able to enjoy the blessing.

      I am one with an over sensitive heart which FEELS the pain of others as they are his OWN.

      i would love to have you with me in this journey my friend .
      why do i have to be invisible BECAUSE i am woman.
      yes i am proud to be a woman but this is men's world who are stronger (only physically) than me .
      i cannot put my honour at risk ,and this is the only reason which makes me want to wear this magic cap .

      Tank you SOOOOO MUCH for reading little poetry from side bar and liking it .

      I STRONGLY DEEPLY believe that only one thing that make human superior is his humbleness ,humanity,dignity and closeness to his creator .

      Nothing else is able to make him above other .

      Branch with fruits and man with such virtues always leans upon to the ground ,they don't stand straight with pride which they drive from worldly stuff which has no value in the eye of God

  2. Ah invisibility......I'm sure alot of people have thought about how good this could be for reasons much like your own, Baili. As for me, you can count me in on this wish. In fact I have felt something of what invisibility must feel like in two very different instances; one being when I used to run long distances for fitness and the other that recently happened to me in the supermarket one day. During my running, oh I was good........, I would have on my headphones and listen to music that had a wonderful driving beat and I would lift my legs and fly across the surface of the ground for miles and miles. This is known as the "incongnito" experience in running. You zip in and out of traffic and other places on your journey and it's also known as "runner's high" you feel. I can still close my eyes and sort of feel it as I envision one of my various runs. As for in the supermarket recently, I had been listening to Law of Attraction videos and was feeling particularly "high" and positive that today was going to be a super day, so when I went to the supermarket I had this feeling that no one could see me. As I walked through the store it almost felt as if people passed right through me and didn't see me. I moved in and out of the other shoppers and even though it was terribly busy at that time, made it quickly to the checkout and found the perfect line that moved quickly. It was heavenly. Yes Baili, I too wish that this invisibility came to me and I could move along and help those in need too. Random acts of kindness are something I try to do often. If I were wealthy I would send anonymous money or help to those in need. If I hit the lottery I would want to open a shelter for our local homeless teens; and give them help with job skills and chance at a good life. Your post is giving me much to think about. Blessings dear friend.

    1. Dear Carol i feel pity for people who always try to peek in other's world and pass remarks which take them down to more low level.
      it sound they don't have their own "life" and if they have one they don't feel any charm and affection towards it which leads to be after other so they can get out of that shallowness na d feel better.

      being women of tow different end of the world i thought there would be less such negative stuff to face but your words made me realized i was not right

  3. When I was a child I used to dream I travelled through space at night very fast attached to a silver cord, i used to visit my grandmother's house but also many other places along the way, i was invisible except to a dark force that i sensed was dangerous, so I had to go back to my body safely to avoid, a very strange and frequent dream, the feeling of travel and invisbility was incredible!

  5. Dear Baili, when I was in the convent so many years ago, I wore a habit and headgear that made much of me invisible. And somehow, then, that felt right for I was trying to leave behind the troubles of my home and upbringing. Some of that comes out in my convent memoir that is being published on Amazon next Wednesday--the 21st. It's called "Prayer Wasn't Enough," and in it, I show just how much I acted a part--hid in a role that I acted so no one would know how unhappy I was. Peace.

    1. Dear Dee your words touched me so deep and brought back so many memories from my past which was financially not much strong but i was so lucky to have all the LOVING relationships specially my precious mother who made me strong enough to face all kind of negativity bravely .
      yet when it came to have complete freedom(which is only illusion till last breath i think) i wanted to be INVISIBLE just to move freely within nature like birds and butterflies ,like boys who thought (and think) that girls don't have right to walk with freedom and confidence and if they try to do this make them feel bad and embarrassed so they hide in their shells again .

      i am so happy you are sharing your memories through your upcoming book which i bet will do great.
      sharing heart make one feel released and bring peace to soul .
      this is basic right of a soul !

  6. Unwanted attention from some men has made me want to be invisible in the past. Not any more. I am not in the workplace now and don’t have to take anything from anyone. I speak up and say what I think and believe. I am here and they will have to deal with me with respect.

    1. "UNWANTED ATTENTION" what a perfect word you used dear Marie!

      yes, being woman this is biggest problem that we face .

      and to avoid this to have our natural right of breathing and moving freely sometimes we want to be invisible .
      WHAT A SHAME FOR MEN BECAUSE OF WHOM WE FEEL THIS WAY >

      HOW MUCH LOWEST MENTALITY THEY OWN WHICH MAKE THEIR DISPLAY AS UGLY AND SHAMEFUL !

      I believe that men who try to disrespect other women ,first of all disrespect woman of their house who gave them birth but cannot teach them how to move in society respectfully .
      because this is truth that to have respect you have to give it first

  7. Invisibility would be the talent of my super-hero self. I could sit in on secret meetings in order to expose corruption and extortion. I would learn where the proof of their plans are so proper action can be taken. There would be much less suffering in the world if those in powerful positions could not deceive and cheat those with less power.

    1. Dear emma i think some fine thinkers and truly enlightened educationists will invent such device for sure to reveal and destroy the dirty plans of selfish people who think they own the world right now but have forgotten that NOTHING LASTS FOREVER ,INCLUDING THEIR POWERS .

      world will be in good hands sooner or later because god has loosen the rope of evil though but it is his habit ,soon he will pull it back to show his authority and equality and humanity will rule the world hopefully!

  8. When I was younger I would wish I was invisible so that I could whisper in children's ears, "You are enough and perfect." or "You are loved." I would wish I was invisible to smack any one who is a bully.

    Then I became an older woman. I find that I am now invisible. Older women in America are truly invisible.

    1. Dear Toni!

      the things you mentioned were never hard for me to do with my visibility .

      I said "i care" to elderly people of my small village who were treated not fairly by their families .
      i helped many very old ladies with their food and water and attention they wanted that time ,i sat and heard their stories of life ,their sorrows and regrets.
      i don't know why but i did this when i was in my early teens .
      now when i think why?

      i think may it was God who wanted to reveal the actual meaning of life that as child we come as weak and dependent
      then later comes the short enthusiastic time of youth which stays for while but expresses the all negative and positive points of our personality with power.
      after that again we fastly travel towards the part of age which make us AGAIN weak and dependent .
      and may be this is why my youth had no enthusiasm or excitement of youth .

      i am 48 now ,an older woman with grownup kids but still need to this cap and this is worst of being part of here(but i love my homeland though!)

  11. When I was much younger I wanted so badly to be invisible. To just disappear, and hope that no one would notice. Back then I wouldn't have done anything. I would have just disappeared, and left it at that.

    Now, I'm not so sure. Being invisible still sounds great, but for so many different reasons. Maybe for as you said, to help people, especially those who are too fearful to ask for or accept help otherwise.

  16. Oh yes Baili, I have been there. As a young adult, married and raising a child, I just did not have confidence in myself for anything, so hiding was something I wanted to do. That was a big change in me from ebing a teen where I was so social and out there. Then again in my early 40's when a relationship ended. I just wanted to be left alone, hide and deal with the issues in my heart. At that point I did a lot of self accepting and learned for the first time in my life that I really like me, I like who I am and I am proud of that! Not hiding anymore.

  17. Gosh..this is such a coincidence...I have so many times wished I could become invisible too!
    It would be so good to have the ability to walk unseen, and therefore to go for a walk in the moonlight (and be safe to do so alone)...or to dance on a crowded beach without being ridiculed!
    Gosh, wouldn't that be amazing?
    And your comment about stealing money from the leeches to give to the poor...reminds me of the Robin Hood legend. Oh how I wish...I could easily become a part of that!

    Have a wonderful day, my dear friend!☺☺

    Big Hugs xoxoxo

  18. Yes! There were times in my teenage years that I wished I could be invisible. I grew up in a very conservative and strict environment and I could not breathe sometimes. And during my first marriage there were many, many times I wished I could be invisible. Now I'm in a wonderful relationship and I don't really have that need anymore.

  20. I don't remember ever wishing to be invisible, but if I had grown up in circumstances such as you did, I can easily imagine that I would have. You always have my admiration for living under the constraints that limit women in your country. And not just living but living well - thriving. I wish you did not have those barriers but I'm glad you have a wonderful husband and good sons. And you make your readers think! That's a good thing :)

    1. Dearest friend Jenny you are always so sweet and kind!

      i agree that my wish for being unseen is more because of my environment of society around me .I could never feel free to express my deepest joy for the sate of being alive and having countless blessings .
      just once in a while even now when i want to move my legs with joy (if it can be called dance) i can't because i am 48 years old ,mother of one grownup and two younger sons, wife of a respectful husband ,and most of all dancing is bad and only bad women do it front of other men to earn money .
      can you imagine the long list which strains from enjoying my moment of pleasure which has noting to do with all those blameful or shameful stuff mentioned above.

      This is me ,and in my house I AM THE QUEEN right ! so i do it (okay did it few times) when my heart asks me to go for it .
      I can strain myself from all kind of sins though but i can't restrain myself by doing simple innocent moves through which i share my joys with me !!!
      and i believe that God is bIG and KIND enough to avoid my tiny sins
      (if they really are in the eyes of others ,i don't care) ( I DO NOT CONSIDER SUCH SWEET INNOCENT ACTS SIN WHICH WE DO TO FEEL HAPPY NOT FOR HARMING OTHERS )

  21. YES .... Often as children we, dream of being invisible especially when there is ‘ bullying’ and intimidation from others ... but I do believe that it is a transitional state that we all must go through and embrace ... In order to understand that there is sadness and mistreatment in the world, we must first experience so that we can grow and progress to be more visible by making the difference in society. ... however ... that being said ... I do love the idea of wearing the magic hat and holding onto the imagination of the inner child ... It is good therapy !!!!

    1. i completely agree what you said dear Zaa!

      But i never wanted to be invisible out of FEAR.

      i always look forward to invasions of challenges since i was child

      (before teens) i faced pushed away oppressions with dare and courage which was i guess inherited in me by mom who was also daughter of very brave lady !

      Reason behind my being fEARLESS is that my consciousness did not give me threat or fright from DEATH and may be this is why i can take all other fears easily .

      only one reason which keeps me want to be invisible is FREEDOM just like freedom of little carefree child running around cheerfully and spreading flowers of peace and joy to all sad hearts

      what an interesting thing you point out here dear Marie!

      believe me i never thought about that one that by being invisible i can know the actual reviews from others for me .

      may be this is because i can sense the REAL thoughts behind their normal talks .i believe my this sense because it NEVER EVER PROVED WRONG .

      Biggest truth about me according to them (and even according to me) is that I am SPICELESS ,SO BORING for whom who look forward some spice in me :)

      some of them say it front of me and some of them reveal this by their actions.

  25. Dear Baili - it was wonderful to read your post. I think being invisible is a new concept to me. Although to be honest - during embarrassing moments in my life I have probably wished I could disappear (same thing - I think). Love your heart that wants to do good to help others. Perhaps one doesn't have to be invisible to make a difference though...just open to the opportunities that come our way and let the Holy Spirit prompt us to reach out and show love to the hurting and helpless. Thank you for sharing friend. Hugs!

  28. I love the way you think. I have read about the restrictions on women in your part of the world so very understandable about that magic hat. I, like you, have wishes of wealth, so I could help people who are in need ot shelter and the basic necessities of life . I remember wanting to be invisible when made to stand in line for confession in the Catholic Church of my youth - i hated that and did not like the religion. There are other times too I would have preferred to be invisible. I want that Magic Hat!

  29. Most of my life I have been invisible without even trying. Even when campaigning against injustices with others. We won the fight. But I was always the invisible one even though I was quite prominent in the protests...

    To be honest I quite like the fact that in plane view I always remained invisible. I think for me this was a gift from God :-)

  31. What an avalanche of comments this post has created, Bali, which goes to show that at one time or another most people have wished they could be invisible. And it made me think of the Harry Potter movies in which he puts on the clock of invisibility. If only there was such a garment for us humans as well.

  32. I got a kick out of reading how you would take from the rich and give to the poor, if you were invisible, Baili. You have a big and generous heart, and you keenly feel the injustices of life and fortune. I don't think it is bad to want to break free of the boundaries of cultural constraints. I think it is a basic longing in every human heart to be free and carefree.

    I've never wished to be invisible, but there are times I have wished I could disappear ~ Like when I was singing in the church choir at the front of the church when I was thirteen. The minister was speaking, and I started to cough and cough. I couldn't stop. I was sitting very close to the minister, and I had to crawl past everyone to get out of the choir stall and somewhere where I wouldn't disturb the service. I didn't know it until some forty years later that I had asthma all my life. I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me because I was mortified. It's embarrassment that makes me want to disappear.

    But to chose to be invisible and go around invisible. I'm not sure how I would act or think. I might be tempted by a dark side.
