Kinship..


I often wonder how complicated is our life, Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose we don’t know, though sometimes we think we do and try with all the resolve to fulfil it. But upon deeper reflection, we know from our daily life that we exist only for other people — first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is dependent, and then for those many who we interact with and, unknown to us, whose destinies we are bound by the ties of labour or sympathy. Several times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are interlinked yet separate and based on the labours that I do or that of others who I impact, hence I should put in my 100% efforts to ensure that I receive what I desire.

I don’t look for instant gratification as it belies my tryst to gain knowledge and competence. The ideals that I follow and which time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, a keen understanding and to the ability tackle various challenges through hard work. But increasingly I realise that without the sense of kinship with people of like mind, without the occupation of mind to find out ways of improving myself and contemplating change, the objective of learning looks defeated to me. I often find myself at crossroads, with my judgement and logic at odds with each other. My heart aches to see fruits of the effort but logic denies me time. It is the decisions taken at such crossroads that I believe would shape the destiny, yet nothing seems to be straightforward.

it is at these junctures that I miss few people the most, those who have helped mould me and given me a sense of accomplishment. Though I know that they may be only a text or call away, I guess time has created a bridge that I hardly travel. Those calls are never made and texts never leave drafts.

The purpose is immaterial right now, the journey is what I am on and kinship the fuel that powers my methods. Its kinship that I seek with souls quintessentially nomadic in nature to traverse this journey through life into time.
