Finding Positivity in Your Hard Time

When we are going through the hard time, life seems miserable despite having all the things we wish. This happened to me in the last month. June was a month when my world turned upside down, once again and I felt broken completely. This time, I felt like, I would never succeed to rise again. This is not the first time I felt broken. I have been broken from inside many times before that. Every time I fell and broke, I managed to rise again. But, this time, it took me long to accept the reality and getting myself ready to let go of the past. Until I did it, I was unable to move on in life. Gradually, after fighting hard with my own self, I made myself understand that whatever I lost will never come back to me. What I didn’t find will never come to my life.

Liberation

14th May, 6:30 AM, Banaras “Everything ends here”, the boatman whispered. I was having an early morning ride in the river. We reached to the famous Manikarnika ghat. A man set fire on the funeral pyre. My heart became heavy after witnessing such a ceremony. It reminded me the most forgetful truth of life. “But, it’s also true, a new journey starts here”, he said, again. I turned back to him, but he kept gazing at the blazing fire. He continued, “The soul departs for a new journey, leaving this cage of the body alone. But, the journey, never ends, until the soul is liberated to the eternity. Here in Banaras, we believe, departure is a new beginning, too.” I turned my eyes to the river, where a flock of birds was flying, carefree, liberated.
