The sun was burning the skin. The earth that i walked on was covered with hot sand. i wasn't complaining but the heat was quite harsh......and the sun was at its peak, lighting up the entire world, fulfilling its purpose, complying to its duty admirably. I continued to walk ahead observing the life of man and his persona that he has acquired in his struggle for subsistence. I was lost in my observation when i felt something. I felt a kiss of calmness and coolness on my cheeks. I smiled wondering Who could that be? It was the breeze using a subtle approach, suddenly the light dimmed and I stopped. I was inquisitive, How could this coolness be present in such heat and who turned out the lights? I looked up and found myself standing under a canopy of two trees. They welcomed me with shade and refreshment. I was tired and sweating, but my soul needed that break. I sat down under the trees, this was just across a busy intersection and there were people all around. Not once did my monkey mind tell me "What will others think of you, Get Up! ". I just enjoyed the coolest breeze that day. My eyes were open but my heart was feeling the peace, and my body understood the heart well and i started smiling............ I felt good, I felt rejuvenated and astonished that in the middle of roofless earth , these two single trees , only two...... provided me the same peace that superior mountain air gave. The circumference of the shade was not bigger than 8 steps in my shoes. Outside the shade was scorching heat and it continued for miles. I was surprised by the juxtaposition of the image i was seeing............... I learnt something that day......... In the middle of chaos and heat, i was calm and still and my spirit satisfied with the drink of purity abundant with happy energy............. WHY....WHY.....Why? Even i pondered for a minute looking for more clarity...... Was it because i chose to sit down because I felt good.....FELT GOOD....I FELT MY SPIRIT HAPPY......I FEEL GOOD.......... the reason is this simple.....IS IT ?...i made a decision based on how i felt................. I wonder How LIFE , MY FUTURE will turn out to be if i went on, walked on the same path everyday, making choices, making decision based on HOW GOOD I FELT..........Oh! Stop for a minute You Judgmental Man, You the Man made from humus........ You just got enough proof , You reaped the fruit of listening to your inner being. You experienced the solidity of your own faith, your trusted yourself........... There is Freedom in that............. Why you worry about survival? tell me why you worry about tomorrow? Isn't living more virtuous.........BEING ALIVE in that moment ......more divine....more winsome
