Presence of good souls, who can be classified as friends have made me understand that animosity in every aspect, is a crime that has not been declared a crime, by refined human acknowledgement in the list of common crime.
Friends of life teach the importance of another soul in their lives; that helps one realize who really one is. They guide us to identify the presence of essence of crude kindness. One then has to with the help of acquired knowledge lead self to the path of self reliance and glowing bliss.
A recent development in the wake of a day is a matter of concern. My friend is unwell and I raise from my chair, a quick decision to visit her. Nature work in my favor and clears hurdles. I take leave of my existing surrounding and travel to the city enveloped in a dome of bluish smoke,( I suffocate) within match box buildings and glowing roadsides. Picturesque, starry oasis in contrast to the green surrounding I travel from.
I am dropped at her doorstep. Cuddled in a bean bag is the timid figure of a once upon lively butterfly, now tired and weary of life. She is a gem of a soul who had helped me learn the warmth of love, care and concern.
I look into her dull, hopelessly weary, dark circled eyes; that not long ago had been bright, lit by the glow of love and youth. A pain shot up within; that raised the foremost question why this lackluster, which were against my continual belief that she would soon get better. One often tend to believe a scene as an injustice, contradicting positive attitude.
That night she became very ill and I surrendered to her bad health condition. I at a night watching her fragile figure fight its battle within. Hope refused to surrender. I fought on and she fought on, while I sat as a mute spectator. I witnessed the struggle to bring self in harmony.
She talked for a whole day after a break of one and a half month of a world beyond the earthlings’ dwelling. I protested and wailed, how can she talk of such things stranger than fiction. I am a fiction writer but to accept a strange reality happening to self secludes us in experience. Anger bubbled within.
Wrath is the inability to accept contradictory views; diffidence equalently evident when mind connives. Knowledge and acknowledgement; think out of the box, is easily said then realized.
In a way, coming to an understanding with reality is through self repentance, self declared method of purification that for a time only the subconscious knows and plays hide and seek.
For my bewildered, aghast mind; on the verge of irrationalism, was to understand in her case that what modern medicine failed to find the cause of pain, a sign spiritual, lent the knowledge; the reason for her pain.
Thus the realization would be; refinement of thought becomes the essence of education.
Probably, animosity would be worldly accepted as inhuman.
This journal will be a record of self analysis…… readers are welcome to leave their valuable comments.
