We jump to conclusions, jumping at the opportunity to pass judgments, creating many such opportunities, seemingly, out of nowhere, and thus declare, the likes of, as per our liking: “You/he/they... should have done this,” rarely, “I/we should have done this,” and covering up in and as defense, with a lamentation, a resigned statement, stating, “What can I/we do?”
Yet, we shy away from asking: Why do the thoughts of “asking” from others, cross the way of our consciousness? Do we consider selves incapable of doing the same, or do we consider it to be not applicable to and for us? And above all, is it because, we have different sets of rules for self and others?
Ruminating, over these, and introspecting on our lives and times would lead us, inevitably, to the realization: All that dots our lives are the spots that we have created, whether consciously or unconsciously. The truth is spotted, sooner or later...and again, at the right moment, when the awareness is ripe to receive what it receives, and thus it receives.
When a smile, directed at others, creates a feeling of warmth inside—to cite a simple sighting, experience, instead of extending the observation, though a fact, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world,” a famous observation by Mahatma Gandhi, so as to convey that we get what we give...we create through our being—even before the one towards whom it is directed is impacted, why choose to be a bystander, living life as a standby, putting life on a standby, and then blame all those who happen to pass by, all passers-by reviled...?
Why not ask, self, “What can I do, and who can I be, to change what I wish to change?” Life is a “can” of infinite possibilities, and it is up to us to find out how and what we can extract from the infinite content to change the contents of our life.
Life, is always affirming, manifesting our intent, always, without discriminating the content of the intent...and thus, beckoning us to activate and utilize its natural reciprocity, affirming: “You can do even more than you think you can.... Have that belief and with that belief have the intent to expand the ‘can’ of your ‘can’s’. Instead of asking what others can do, and lamenting that you can’t do anything about it, affirm and be the affirmation: ‘I can and will, do...: effect the change that I wish to see...my will willed to the intent to change, with faith in the operation of life, within and without...knowing, it intends to keep us operational, always, and in-operational, never....”
Life calls out to us, earnestly looking forward to our affirmation: “So be it....”
