A Loner !

The other day one of my close friend just casually asked “So you are a loner ?” and I couldn’t help but say “YES, I am.” The entire last week I kept thinking about it again and again which left me with an answer that didn’t come as a surprise to me, I am loner and now I like it. Last week I have traveled a lot and all by myself, which kept me busy and which earlier never seemed possible to me. I went through the patterns of things I have been doing lately in my head and they have been all alone. The funny thing is I was never like this before.

I always loved to be surrounded by people and if I was left alone it would just make me sad. I always wanted someone around me. But now even when surrounded by people I can still manage to be alone, manage to zone out from group of people, I have done that many times now. The best part out of all this is I am not answerable to anyone. I guess with time passing by and the situations that you are put into, you learn by yourself. No one teaches you, one just learns. It just makes you a much stronger person and not to forget a much better person as well. 

Namaste !

A Day to Life Post – 11

I have been away from blogging since few days. This week has been a busy week after a long time and a fun week. One of my school time friend welcomed her first child to this world, a baby girl, around 2 weeks back, so had been for her naming ceremony this week. I must say the baby is like an angel, so adorable. Besides that I had my Buddhist meetings almost everyday, preparing for our monthly zadankai (meeting) which got over today. I was a part of the study group, the song group and was even sharing my experience. So Gakkai activities kept me busy this whole week, something that I enjoy and makes me happy.

This week’s study was on a very interesting concept named Lessening of karmic Retribution which gave us a guidance as to how one can change or lessen one’s bad/negative karma into a good/positive karma and the fact that one cannot escape whatever good/bad karma you have created for yourself by words, deeds and actions maybe in this lifetime or in former life. You have to face it. The zadankai was just amazing. I now wait for every monthly meetings because it leaves me in high spirit and I get to learn so many new things not just about the practice but even about myself. I like the fact that every single member in my group is very helpful, kind, compassionate towards other’s pain and feelings. They will go out of their way to help one another. Which is so selfless and very rare to find.

As Sensei Ikeda says in Discussion on Youth ” The fact is only someone who has experienced pain and hardships can empathize with other’s and treat them with kindness. It’s essential,therefore, that you become strong.” Now I know and can relate and connect with it. Hope you all have a great Sunday.

A Day to Life Post – 10.

“Sometimes the prettiest smile hide most of the secrets and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain.”

This is such a simple line yet so true. Have you ever tried to see beyond ones smile, one might be shocked and would have never imagined what’s hidden behind that pretty smile and how lonely is their life. We all try to hide our true emotions behind a smile. We all are put through different and difficult phases in life, some face the worst, which really tears them down. If you try and look into their eyes all you will find is some kind of sadness, sadness which has been caused by someone or by some incidence. These are the very people who have the kindest hearts, understand other’s suffering because the fact is only someone who has experienced pain and hardships can empathize with other’s and treat them with kindness. For this it’s essential that he/she becomes strong. No matter what hardships one faces, one should keep moving forward without giving up, they will all eventually vanish like a mirage.
