If you have read the story, Thank you for reading it. If you have not, its ok. It was not meant for you.
Its easy to be good. Isn’t it, speak lovely, talk lovely. Stay friendly. It helps, nobody touches you, who will??? Who will hit a pawn, on the other side of board if it is not needed.
What happens when you act?? Schuller writes- “you are tested”.
You are tested for fitness, for an assignment. An assignment of the level above what you show. That is why everytime you do something you move ahead in life.
Some people say- I am doing good, In the eyes of game, i am importent. Some close ones say” i am stupid”.
Just a few days back, i wrote one thing very depressing. Some one replied back. I felt hurt. I learned how can my hurt hit someone. One good thing that happened is- i am no longer able to write depressed words anymore.
I can think, i do think, but when i reach for the keys, i know the words which deserve backspace. This is called learning. I can not be depressed. I can not afford being depressed- because it hurts. In case of a man like me, it hurts importent people.
I had a visit to Dwarka, a few days back. On the day of holi, i visited several places. One did hit me most, Ruksmani temple. The story reflects sorrow, a saint punishing a lovely couple, a land,with the reason alone that he put his wife’s thirst ahead. And did not ask him first for water. I don’t know what God did with that saint.
But i do know the story does reflects a storg point in our culture. Your personnal feelings ” how strong or importent may be, have to be kept behind the one of sacred”. That is what my parents also tried to teach me. The law of master. I detaste that idea and it is scrap. I mean- you are carrying the load of the person along with the load of ruth. And you are treating the saint with what you can do. Then too if you gave your first call to your thirsty wife. What is wrong there??
The story gives a clue the culture which has been there.
Your parent’s feelings come first, maywhat ever.
Your religion comes first, serve may whatever.
Your Pujari comes first, reason whatever.
The story when taken to general- reflects, “You are not importent, your love, freedom is not importent, your society is more importent.”
Our society has followed this feeling, since a long time, what results have come out of this?
A panchayat system, which was then taken over by imperial rule, then by collonial rule. All of them till now have reflected: a high level of exploitation. Since personnal exploitation in person, only results in power & money for a few and the benifit is also untransferable to more then a few people. It results in what???
I was depressed whole day yesterday. I had to comeback to my spirits. I remember watching a movie way back “One i have never liked too much” -The masters and commanders of the far end of the sea. I can not explain yet, but yes it has helped me to understand the difference between the first and the latter.
…………..Its hard to not to write wrong and dead words, but if you can defeat the feeling, there is a space where you will get to write better.
