Destiny beckons!

My favorite Buddhist saying is…“You cannot step into the same river twice!”

………………………

Recently someone asked me “Why do a few people who were once very close to us then become distant…unreasonably?”  I said “Well! You are right but then there was more unreasonable thing that you missed out upon – ‘How in the first place did they come to us out of the blue?’…

…‘How there were so many people in the class but you befriended one?’… ‘How you got your first client by sheer coincidence’… ‘How you suddenly fell in love with someone although you knew that person for long but never felt that before’… or ‘How you found a room-partner before you found a room?’…    

Life is a stream…and has a natural flow to it. That flow is governed by a higher force at work! People are drawn to us and then are withdrawn away, not at their own will, but at command of that higher force! Problem starts when we try to resist the flow…

… ‘When we repeatedly call someone who has moved on?’… ‘When we keep SMSing to those who have deleted our contact-details’… ‘When we convince people to stay when they don’t want to be there anymore?’ … ‘When we keep looking at fb-accounts of people who have already gone past us’…!

Well! Don’t push it hard! If it’s not coming naturally then it only means that it doesn’t have a role in the grand plan now! Don’t question the relevance of what you can’t understand…Trust that beyond reason lies a higher force called ‘Destiny’…taking us towards our ‘Destinations’.

………………………

And Yes! …Focus on those who the flow has now brought into your life…equally unreasonably!

…Destiny beckons!
