On life and its vagaries

The other

with 6 comments

The title is tough  all right, but this article has nothing to do with toughness , but  it has every thing to do with people, who of course are the tough-less of beings.. Not people like you and me, but people like “them”.

They are a tricky  lot.

They are out to get us. They do not like us. They love to hate us.

They might even kill us.

Well ……..who are they?

Not me or you. But are you sure? It could be any one of us or it could be all of us. Every one of us carries the germ of alien-ness, the identity of difference, it is inevitable, we all live in different space and time, literally. But we are not very sure of it either, are we? We seem to live in the same environment, physically and often mentally that is, but we are yet so different and so alien to one another. Even with conditioning that we receive we do not see eye to eye with others. Yes we bow before certain rules and perform any number of actions socially, but that does not drive away this feeling of being different from others.

We are often lost within ourselves, unmindful of others, not heeding them or their promptings……..

But stragely even the most mundane of people talk about love, and being with others, and giving ourselves up unconditionally. I am not blaming them, for what else there is to talk. They are as fit for truth like any of us. I can only see the difference in the degree of callousness  in them. But is there any one among them who could do that? No, I do not think it is possible to them. Yes there are souls who could. They can convert us into the state of the blessed by a mere touch or word. They all teach us one thing.

That all our answers have to come up from ourselves, not from others, not from books not from any thing else.

This is the whole story of life, this search ever turning inwards into your own very being, quizzing our own selves. The final truth lies some where within us, waiting to be found.

“They” prevent us from seeing it, “they” turn us towards every thing else.

They are the “other” the obstacle, the veil.

May be you have noticed, “veil” is “evil” in essence, no, it is not a play of words, it is the whole truth.

Let us remove the veil and all will be clear.
