Seers say each day is a new day when the Sun rises. Thousands of quotes about a day being a new day each day. Yes..it always is a new day. The cloud formations are never the same, the hues and tints of the crimson colour are always displayed in different shades on the canvas of the sky. Yesterday s bud would have slightly opened up or on the verge of flowering. And the old leaves drop away paving way for the new budding ones...how beautiful !
But WE the great drama Masters..have all our focus on the dead and dry leaves which have dropped. We sit and cry over the painful things of the past and wear our struggles and fights like martyrs. Just like Jesus Christ wore the crown of thorns.
Sometimes even the drama during the times of Christ makes me feel like laughing and asking.."wasn't there a better way " ?? The carrying of the cross, the crown of thorns, and then being nailed.!! And then wailing for thousands of years over that nailing saying "christ died for our sins" !! There is so much about LOVE and the power of the SELF and the miracles that Christ taught..! But our focus is only on his painful part. Finally we have morose serious looking pictures of Christ all over ! Sigh...
A friend gave his view point saying..may be the times of Christ were dense..so this drama was needed to drive home the point to people . Possible.
I also sometimes secretly feel..that Jesus Christ who would have evolved more by now would be looking back at his own incarnation of Christ and chuckling saying...."how much of drama i played out !! hehe !.. And if i were to have a chat with him..i will say..may be in the next cycle..we will make some changes in the script ;-)..like may be you can wear a crown of nice flowers..or may be u can smile more..or also we will cancel the nailing part..it is too dramatic !! I will put my hands on my waist,raise one of my eyebrows.. yell at him and ask him.."Christ.. are you all set out to make us feel guilty by getting nailed eh ??? Enough..!!! He may say.."errrr..child..calm down.." Jokes apart..may be Christ knew what was best for those times.
But NOW..we need to decide what is best for these times..fast changing times.
We hold on and clutch the baggage of the past as if they are precious belongings. We hear people narrating how much they have suffered and how much the scars hurt ! And suffering and pathos is supposed to make a person deep ! NO..Thanks ! There are other ways of being deep.
Tell me who has not suffered ? WHo has not swallowed pain ? Who has not walked the path of thorns ? WE ALL HAVE...
We chose to do this during these times. So why go on singing about it and spreading sad vibes around ? When all the meditations, the techniques, and paths are to realise this one single fact that BLISS and LOVE are the nature of the soul.
Pain has played its role dear ones...it has done its job. Left behind some lessons and may be some scars which will heal if allowed to. Let us neither glorify pain nor resent it. Let us say thanks to this illusion called pain...and let go of it to embrace our true nature that of love,Joy and celebration....
