its a tight rope walk, the path of a seeker. there are many pitfalls. and its easy to get dissuaded, discouraged and to stray away from the path. everyday is a new challenge.
amidst all the perils, the one thing that has always worked for me is prayer. it reinforces my faith in the omni present divinity. more importantly, it strengthens by belief in myself. prayer gives me immense strength. prayer also cleanses my mind of its inherent filth. it fills my heart with a certain calmness that is hard to describe. i pray that He grant me the wil & time to pray regularly.
one that note, its wednesday and so i remember to be grateful to –
1. BG for being so kind as to invite me for a meeting. although it may not happen anytime soon (as i am held up with work, and also travelling one and off), i will look forward to it, as he is one of my favourite bloggers.
2. sethu, the auto driver and isakkiappan, the auto mechanic in tirunelveli. they were simple, unassuming and extremely helpful people. and we were badly in need of help 🙂
3. tirunavukkarasu, in trichy, for reminding me how truly blessed i have been. he waits in a moderate hotel in evenings, and studies science in a college during the day. he lives in very simple, and for some, very inconvenient, accomodation provided by the hotel (he otherwise belongs to a different town, salem). true to his name, he has that zeal in him and his words inspire.
PS: the weekend was a blast. will write about it in my next post.
