Unprecedented Times

The world breaks everyone and afterward some are strong at the broken places.“…Ernest Hemingway.

So here I am jobless,not in my wildest dreams did I ever think it could happen to me ,well as you know I was in a very safe job of healthcare.”People will always need me or so I thought.”I was laid off work due to the current situation we are in ,I should not mourn loosing the job as I am not the only one.Hundred’s of people everyday are laid off as our enemy has been an unknown microorganism .Yes the unseen enemy has made its entry by creating a havoc in our lives.So many lives are lost as the war is against an enemy no one can seen with naked eyes.You meet a person ,you may never see them again.The lives are lost every passing minute.

So should I even mourn my job?I don’t think so.

But I feel a break in my back just like the picture attached to this blog.

I feel I may not recover,the pain is intense and no words are there to express my loss….but mark it I am not mourning it yet as I know the world has larger wounds ….

So how can I pull myself together.Yet another hurdle to cross…life is all about hurdles so I say to my little heart get up and get moving.Like an athlete I have to train again my mind and body and I do want to believe I will be fine.

till then my friends.. arrivederci!!

Life is uncertain

So today I learnt another young life lost to the brutal hands of death. Sudden massive heart attack of my good friends brother.Its painful when someone leaves and even more when a young life is gone just like the sand escaping from our hands.

Our time here is so limited so get up express love to the ones you have not spoken or hold a small grudge against them.Give up your ego and be the first to apologize as we know this loan of life is soon to be repaid even if we want to hold on to it forever.

I bid adieu to the departed soul and May he attain moksha and be freed from the unending cycle of life and death.

I yearn for peace and health to the universe.

Ignorance

Today my child was told she would go to hell by not believing in Jesus…:child cannot process it well…at her age it is extremely difficult..

We were raised in an educated Hindu believing household where going and praying even in church,gurudwara and for that matter other places was not frowned upon.As a kid we were raised by saying God is one but every religion calls him by different name but we should respect all religions…

It’s so sad times have changed…I would study in a convent high school and almost each day would run and pray quietly in church..didn’t think I was doing anything out of ordinary as I truly believe our creator is one….

I still have a roseary both of Hinduism which has 108 beads and a Christian rosary with Christ on my bedside table….I am strong believer that humanity is most important and religion is very private but it does not make me feel other religions are any less….

Peace be upon world and let us enrich the world with love and brotherhood and not hatred.

Thankful

Well it’s so true till life just goes on as planned we don’t really have to think or pay attention to the daily life activities as our bodies automatically are able to complete the tasks.Mark you I am talking about the basic tasks of life like being able to safely get out of bed, be able to walk ,use stairs and be independent with all the activities of daily living.We are young and vibrant and why should we think and thank for such things,it does not occur to us how valuable these basic things are.until with a bolt of lightning in a fraction of second you lose all of it.

Even though you know it’s temporary but it leaves a lifelong impact on one.Makes one more humble and thankful for all the little things which we often take for granted.

Now as the time passes have to gain strength mentally and physically to be able to return to prior level and I am sure in this vast ocean of life thousands of people probably have to face much harder challenges…Remember to be thankful and more humble and please have empathy for all…

Waiting for my spring…..

Friends

Sometimes friends in real world go years without talking probably due to some misunderstandings.But sooner than later they do eventually talk.

Well it’s true they missed some years but when they meet the divine intense feelings of mutual friendship seem to erupt instantly and they realize that nothing has changed.They were little fools and maybe young and little careless.But with age comes maturity and the yearning to hang out people of the same background and with whom some history is shared in past so they understand each other better…One such friend I met today and it got my mind reeling into childhood….Oh how I thank God we crossed paths again and this time to stay connected for good…
