Death has taken bigger toll on 2020 than we had ever expected.
It has become a daily feat to conquer instead of facing it at the end of the life.
However, when death comes with a possibility threat, it also comes as a reminder:
1. That if it comes to grab us, let it take us away with our happiness, instead of letting its fear take away our happiness.
2. That there are people who need our support and just our emotional presence. We can always be there for them, even if we are not around them. Let our loved ones know you care. Because you do. And because they need you.
3. This moment is all we have. We don’t know what’s next, however we do own what we have now.
Last night was something I would remember for a long time.
Ever since the time lockdown began, I was in Delhi – where I stay owing to my work. Couldn’t go to home.
Yesterday we finally got the permission to move from there to my hometown via hired taxi. It was four of us – me, a friend, her brother and the taxi driver.
We had just crossed Jaipur and at the border of Jaipur and Tonk – there was a police patroling like it’s always there.
While crossing from there, the driver perhaps dozed off and blew away four barricades at a drizzling speed. The fifth one happened to finally drag the car for twenty metres – until it finally moved to a zigzag pattern, rendered the car to forcibly stop.
It was 1AM.
The moon was sparking bright.
In the month of May in the state of Rajasthan, the cool breeze was refreshing.
And then this accident. We managed to handle it. The police was extremely kind to us.
Another car was passing from the highway and the driver noticed the number plate on our car was of our hometown – where they were going. The driver offered to help. We were skeptical.
However going in the same broken car was nothing short of dangerous – here the police was there, later on we weren’t promised of police support.
We thought over it, deliberated it for a few minutes – until we finally asked the driver to share his ID.
When my friend clicked the picture of his ID, she realised she has seen this ID a couple of days back.
She scrolled through her pictures and realised he was the same driver who had cancelled his trip to coming to pick us up because he was appointed to go somewhere else.
What a coincidence!
We went on with this driver, made the former driver go with his car, called his manager in the middle of the night to no avail – and off we went.
All sorted out.
With just one thing – yesterday as I escaped death just by a few inches, I almost had an intuition at 10 PM in the car that I better start meditating and create an aura of safety and protection around us.
God moves in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform – said Napoleon Hill in Think and Grow Rich.
PS: In this entire episode from 1:10 AM to 1:55 AM, I felt zero anxiety or restlessness. Someone is mysteriously moving along.
PPS: Btw here’s a pic of clean sky in the otherwise busy evening of Noida. Enjoy!
Last night was something I would remember for a long time – for all the good reasons!
If you don’t like working on PPTs, are you doing something along with it that you love?
It’s okay to feel sleepy when you’re not rested, are you making best use of you time when you are well rested?
If your parents did not give you a perfect childhood, are you giving them a perfect older age life?
It’s okay if you want to change how the current world looks like, question is are you starting with yourself? Daily?
No one was offered a perfect world on the day they were born.
Everyone, was offered an opportunity, to leave the world a little better in the un-defined number of years they were given. If you, like the rest of us, do not know the date of your death, today would be a great day to start.
In search of life, I settled for death Why ask others When after murdering my own happiness I am suffering the pain of its death In search of life, I settled for death
The above is an excerpt from my book “Fit Doesn’t Fit: Why not fitting into the world is The Best Thing for You and the World”
The only purpose behind me writing this book was to let people like you and me, who are wandering in search of happiness, yet know the only person responsible for happiness is the person in the mirror.
Yes, there are people who shattered you from the core.
Yes, there are people who tried to bring out the worst in you.
Yes, despite all this, no one understands you.
This book is an attempt to bring that understanding not TO you, rather FOR you, because you deserve it. Your life is not randomly allowed to be wasted by anyone.
You matter. Stop fitting in.
The ebook is available here and Paperback is available here.
What’s better? It’s available globally, outside India readers do check your local Amazon sites, because I want my global community to be benefitted.
Wish you all all the peace, friends. Stop fitting in. Be an Unfit.
