The cool chill dawn spread its wings and started embracing the cosmos. The beautiful touch of morning awakened the spirits in us. Thank you, Lord, for the blessings; for adding one more day to our life. Life is beautiful and living a peaceful life is so imperative. I find bliss in writing about life. Often, I ruminate over the importance of life. We value our life, its happiness and peace more than anything else. Wheels of time roll so swiftly that an Onam of sharing and celebrating moved without any humdrum.
While we, together embark on prosperity, it’s time to rewind the memories of floods and pandemics. In the midst of all these destructive calamities, we sense the integrity, somewhere dripping and vanishing like ether. When we celebrate our festivals, we love to celebrate them together. That was a day of happiness blended with love, care and of course belongingness. But, unity is missing now, unlike in the past days.
I met a stranded family, two days back. The members are separated and they struggle to live their life. Is it god’s plan? Or manmade deeds strangle the chords of life? Where is togetherness? Where is the bond of love? Love is not valued at all. Mother, children relationship has stains of discontent. Sanctity is lost. Reasoning power has vanished. Stubbornness, dominancy, poignancy and ego of the family members rule the heart and soul. Adjustment is impalpable. “I”, the power, restrains the life. Mere words crush life.
It’s really painful to peep into their life. Days of togetherness and love seem to be illusions for them. There are no festivals; hunger and anger overpower them. Ego and eccentricity dominate them. Left out in the wilderness, the mind, hands and even the spirit is struck. Life becomes a standstill. It is high time to think about life, to live it and love it. A life without purpose is meaningless.
Life keeps moving forward; nothing is permanent. Hence, don’t sulk in dejection. Occasions and incidents will pass, no matter if it is a happy one or a sad one. Nothing will stay forever. Every situation, occasion and event shall pass. Have a positive attitude towards all the sufferings. An optimistic person certainly can overcome huge hurdles. This is certainly, the beauty of life. One must certainly enjoy the beautiful blessings of life before death overtakes.
You were chosen to be born and live in this world. Inspire someone who is broken at heart. Listen to your heart and act with your brain. Set an example of gracious conduct. Every morning is an opportunity to renew your connection to your soul. you and only you can change your destiny and life. Let your thoughts illuminate the actions and the actions adorn your life.
