I was there today and after offering my prayers, went and sat at my favorite spot. Since it is next to my college, we used to visit this place very often; my friends and I. All those images flashed in front of my eyes - the xerox shop next to the temple where we have got numerous notes xeroxed, the road on which we took walks while having coffees and teas, the place behind the temple where we studied during our internals; made me feel so nostalgic.
The revelation I had today was something that my sister-in-law told me recently when I was visiting her in New York. "Letting go" is something that everyone needs to learn. I think this is so true. If we keep holding on to certain beliefs, rigid thoughts, old memories, materialistic things, grudges etc., it means we are chaining ourselves and not letting our own selves be free. If I think otherwise, that kinda makes sense too. If we don't hold on to anything, is there anything individualistic about oneself? (There is a thin line between being individualistic and egoistic, mind you). Can cultures be carried forward if everyone starts to let go of everything? These debates raised in my mind, but in the end, "letting go" won. In this fast paced life, it makes sense to move on quickly.
Having a revelation is one thing, abiding by it is another :) Let me see how far I get on this journey of mine. Your thoughts on this debate? Or your peace spot? Or any revelations you might have had?
