I didn’t know there was someone more nervous than me, when I was leaving my hometown for the first time, until recently when she shared it with me.

‘ I got a severe headache, and was unable to sleep. I was anxious and nervous galore. I was wondering how would you survive in the town where you knew no one. But all my fears were dispelled when I started chanting the sacred verses.’, said my grandmother.

Her belief in the higher power, makes her stronger to set us free.

**********************************

I fared goodbye to all family members, and when I hugged her the last time before leaving, while unwrapping my arms, I noticed she was on the verge of crying. She showered some blessings onto me, and I noticed that her tears had made up their way into her voice. Tears welled up in my eyes, I avoided her gaze, and quickly ran towards the taxi. I couldn’t cry in front of her.

She had set me free in her world; This was the beginning, she had set herself free from us.

6 Questions

IMG-20180706-WA0005

Trapped in these questions…

  • What I think of myself?
  • What others think of me?
  • What I think others think of me?
  • What others think I think of them?
  • What I think of others?
  • What others think of themselves?

Never the answer to any of these questions would be the same. Our thinking is primarily based upon who we are, and since, we all our different, we will never think the same. And probably, there is no point in  even trying to impressing the thoughts of someone. Because the angle through which the other is thinking, you are not even close to it.

So, next time you overthink, just try to consciously notice the question, in which you are trapped in, and trust me, once you start understanding that you are being trapped, you will dispel all the fears, frustrations, overwhelming emotions and irritations with that smile of yours, which will show up, because this time, you would have cut the mustard by circumnavigating the trap through your awareness and consciousness.

Ordinary

Today, while talking with a friend, I came to know that I had hurt her feelings few days back, whereas, I had no clue about any of this. Also, a normal discussion with my mom took a bad turn and I ended up upsetting her just a day before yesterday.

I have always believed that I have these virtues of kindness and politeness. But I am ordinary too is what I forget. I am not the epitome of the nicest things. It gets difficult for me to absorb the notion that I did something terrible to someone, even though, it was all unintentional. So, here are few verses, saying the same. Go slow.

I think and believe

that I am positive and kind

I am all things good and nice

is the point that I cherish

Yes, I am all the heart warming things

and Ordinary

As I hurt people

and get angry

I upset my dear ones

and increase their pains

Yes. Yes.Yes.

I am all the good things

and Ordinary!
