Epiphany

The past month or so I’d been feeling very bogged down and low. The state of my country, our people, what we’ve done to the planet, the fact that I personally am not doing enough to fix things, all played large on my mind. And it frustrated me. Life felt very pointless because one step forward was negated by a million steps back by someone else. I just couldn't see the light.
Then somehow yesterday, it struck me.
Life is what it is. It’s going to be no better or worse on another planet or in another galaxy. It’s going to have moments of glorious beauty followed by heart-wrenching ugliness but in the end, despite what happens, life is beautiful. In all its forms, it’s worth living for, and worth making the most of. And really, the only way to do it is to be fully present in the moment, to whatever is happening, be it good or bad or however our mind labels it. 
I realize now, that if we live from moment to moment and function from that deeper space that lies within all of us, there is no way that the future will not look brighter. This is because the present moment itself will be used beautifully, and perfectly, and just as it is meant to be. With this kind of power, each of us can achieve so much more. It is never too late to start, or give back or help out, and no matter how small the first step, it counts. Everything counts and it all makes a difference.
Life is perfect as it is. It is unchanging in so many ways, and like a river in so many others. All we can do is flow.

  3. Wise, Wise Words !!

    I find that a heavy dose of bottom bass Punjabi music goes on to add some flow ;), create some movement.

    A disclaimer though - Bose don't cut on the above - u gotta buy some cheap iBall for that :)

    Cheers
