Yeah, here we go again! To think about it, there’s nothing in this life that at some point will not converge into one word. I can almost hear people sighing and/or rolling eyes just at the mention of it. Such is life. Such is the human condition.
It was thanksgiving this past week, so no one was in the mood to study or work and it was obvious just looking at the number of absentees. Its expected. Anyway, the past week was interesting to say the least.
Livin’ it up, not really. But some of the most amazing feelings surfaced during this week. I knew it was going to be an emotional week as it marked a year since the Mumbai Massacre on Nov. 26, 2008. I have written at length as how I felt about it when it actually happened. This time around I was determined to change the negativity that accompanied this time of the year for me personally. And Life, who is always listening, obliged.
About a year ago, I was put in a situation when I had to face my fear straight on. I had realized at that point in time itself, there is no way out but there is always a way through. I had not wanted to face it but I had to because that was the only path that will take me higher on my life story. A chance to grow consciously. Better to go through something and come out of it, rather than avoiding it.
Fast forward to now, once again, so much has happened. I have said this before that I no longer feel as being the same person as I was before. And its weird to observe it within myself. Time will make you age but you can grow with your own initiative.
I would want to detail the time that’s been so special but I will not. It is something that is still personal irrespective of how much I would like to talk about it. I don’t know what the future holds but I am not willing to live in fear of losing it all. So, I just would like to pen down these thoughts that have been dominating my thought process about everything since summer.
Love is not an obsession. Love is not controlled. Love others just as they are in their own places. Love and Care does not paralyze. It makes you reach out.
Only in love are unity and duality not in conflict. ~Rabindranath Tagore
