I had an aha moment today, a gift from the universe to reflect back at myself, a reminder to practice what I preach, a ticket to remember to always be true to and with myself.
Looking at a group of Middle Easterns talking to each other only in English is sad! It’s not sad because of the language they chose to speak, they could speak Sanskrit for all I care, what’s sad is the journey away from our identity.
I am an honest advocate for expressing yourself freely, hence my writings are all in English because even I am more comfortable writing in English than actually writing in my own language!
What happened there? What will happen later?
If it’s not us, it’s our children… who will they be when they grow up?
There’s a certain image or frame that people are striving to live in, but it’s vague, it has no higher purpose or clear goal, it’s just a mirage of a better being.
The word naked comes to mind, naked from all the thoughts of dislocation, dislocation from your culture, dislocation from those around you. The urge for everyone to strip down to their genuine selves comes from the notion that love is at the center of everything.
We strip down from false ideologies, of feeling the need to prove anything, the need to come across as a certain someone to be loved and accepted.
Simplicity is a way of life, is a way of living and of interacting, it brings back the godly flow of life, of human relationships, it flips us inside out where we begin to live from the heart, love from the heart and act from the heart.
“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is a daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
