I am sitting at a restaurant on this colorful and a very light day. Everywhere there are people around me, eating, chatting, smiling, living….everyone is happy in their private companies. I am happy by myself, observing them; observing life…Life is so beautiful.
I ate good food, came out and walked towards my place. There are people around me doing their work, there are plants, animals, birds, around me all living their lives independently. I see their one and only expressions, their urge to live a happy life, their graciousness, their fear, their greed, their satisfaction, their thoughts, and their connection to each other. There is light, there is air, land, water and matter....They all are source of their expressions, reactions and reciprocations. These –ions are bringing the inevitable change at every instant in their lives, in my life.
I can see a man on his bike, brawling with a person walking nearby. It seems as if they are arguing on a trivial matter. A car just passed me, with all its windows open and a little boy, a girl and their pet playing in the car by themselves, where as their parents (a guess) sitting at the front talking to each other. There is a beggar asking for money on the name of God, and a very kind and a courteous woman gave him a ten rupee note. That beggar could not feign his happiness, and prayed to God for that woman’s well being and better life. I sometimes feel myself connected with the creator when I am with a woman, in fact with any female. I had always found them kind, courteous, full of love and care for others. I can see and feel that love and care in my grandmother, mother, sister and every one of them. It is inherent in them to give love and care to others to make them happy. When I realized this fact, I have always been in contact with women.
As I live away from home, from my family, there was a time when I had a lot of work and various pressures and I was kind of disconnected with friends and society; it was also a good time as I enjoy doing work but when I started sharing time and talking frequently to them I found my life a bit light and free of pressure. I have always realized peace and fun with them.
As I walked ahead, a young road side dog started barking, and once or twice showed his tiger-like teeth and snake-like tongue, I just smiled to him briefly and went ahead. It is a nice weather today with a charming light and a comforting breeze. Life has always been a little light or a little heavy. In fact it surprises me that how our lives could be compared with the numbers. We always play with numbers in between 0 and ∞(infinity), and same is our life we always live in between the happiest moment and the most sad moment, and we always with our so-called –ions try to reach on either of them.
I reached home and found my land lady playing with her grandchild, I smiled at them, and they smiled back. LIFE IS SO BEAUTIFUL.
