The Begotten City
“Here I am watching through the window, from one of the most happening cities of India, all together, and yet alone… A long way from home, but so close, as to heart. A life which has become my very own”.
I’ve come along way. Way’s I never knew I could make, but still all of it has happened and has happened well. Life just like for everybody else has taken me like a flowing river, flowing in different ways and for me this would be the 5th city I am moving into and life isn't much surprising when you have all the heart and the will to make your way into it, in that ultimate search to find out where you really belong.....
It all started well. I enjoyed being myself to everyone around me, just to let them know that I am very much a person who I say I am… Not a word extra! In a few weeks, I had made some nice people as friends, and there were times when I was much cared and taken care off. Times were slowly changing and I loved it to be. After all for me life and the art of living has always been the change which life brings in at every point of a man’s life. To know to let go and to know to hold on are two little things which make up the whole life. But it so happens that most of us hold on or let go of the wrong ones and then we sit and think why it all happened that way! We all make mistakes and we all at some points of our lives sit and think why and how, we never get answers and sitting miles away from home neither did I.
I was always happy, God had blessed me with true people, and true friendship should not be taken for granted, nor should they be lost and irretrievable. Have you ever stopped to think how blessed you are at this moment? Your station in life is because of where God has placed you for a time such as this, despite the things that you may ascertain that are deemed trials or other tribulations. Even so, the journey has not been traversed alone. Your bandwagon had many occupants and with many stops along the way and so have mine. We are here together at this place where fate governed our destiny. On a personal note, I know for a fact that I'm where I'm at now in my life because of those that God has put in my life for influential value. The friends that I've ushered in and cultivated...even those that have drifted away from me -- I know too, that we've had our moments. Think about acquaintances you've come in contact with, people that have been introduced to you, and the friends that have come and gone in your life. I'm reminded more often than not how discernible options can fuel deductive reasoning, logic and common sense in knowing that not all people are my cup of tea -- or coffee, for that matter! But in the end, they all did play a role in your life. And memories that never can erase themselves were indeed made !
I read this line from a book long ago and I share it with you all… It reads: "The universe is made of invisible strings that connect to your skin. Sometimes the universe will pull itself away from you, and the strings will tighten and cause your skin to tear away. Your mind will escape, and it will go flying up, out into everything. Your soul stays with you." I love the way this line leads me… Your soul stays with what your heart thinks, and your mind moves with what your eyes look. That’s life !
I wake up every morning, with a smile and a thank you note to God, I know all what has happened, as happened for good, and I know that life what ever it may be, If you just have the will and the heart to make it happen, you will realize that somehow you will belong where your heart eventually leads you to be.
And so in the end I can touch my soul and I know its lead me here, a long way from home, but so close as to heart. A life which has become now; my very own”.
