भागती फिरती थी दुनिया जब तलब करते थे हम
I chased the world and it eluded me
I renounced and it’s after me now
Connecting the dots of my life sometimes I have come across situations where the above quote ( my grandpa’s legacy) has helped me explain things to myself.I don’t know if it has something to do with Murphy’s law but once you decide that I don’t care the world around you starts realigning itself to lure you in.When you have risen above a subject it represents itself in a more interesting manner, the scene unfolds and transforms itself into something exciting,people who were strangers give you a warmer smile and your bank accounts starts to swell when you have opted for a simple life.
I appear therefore I am says Maya
I am blinded and I can’t see says me.
In the perpetual fight between the illusion of Maya and the reality of existence Maya wins invariably.I have wondered why ?Perhaps because we are limited by our senses which filter the information before passing it on to the intellect which is in turn burdened by years of conditioning habituated to respond in the same old way.
To get the right picture I will have to step out of the frame.Train my senses for a more direct perception so it feeds the intellect with data that is not colored or blurred by sensory malfunction.As this happens the awareness levels will go up and I will be able to sift between right and wrong not necessarily in a worldly way but in more spiritual sense.
Its a long journey but I have taken the first steps.I am experimenting with the above idea and the more it proves to be correct the stronger is my conviction to change myself and not the world around me.
