|Fly high - living alone|
Wednesday, April 25, 2012
Every period or phase in life prepares you for life ahead. How you approach those phases is what really counts. If you believe that this is the hardest.. it would be so. You have already set in motion that thought, which would bring you to your destiny. When you approach a new but formidable task as an opportunity to learn and experience a new phase of life, it magically turns itself into something that is indeed interesting and full of new opportunities. Being alone is a place you could reach even amidst a crowd. I can still be among the crowds and be in my own private space, because I have learned to live in my own skin while enjoying each moment of it. Living alone has it upside and down side.. what is it you want to see?
If you want to count your losses, you could count them all day. If you only had eyes for the gains, the sky is the limit. It was in this loneliness that I met the love of my life. In the midst of madness I found my peace. Honestly if I had taken the easy way out I would have missed the opportunity of my life. It is in your darkest hour that the light seems to appear the brightest.
My guru would always tell me, "Sofs, if there is no test there is no promotion." Your endurance and mettle is tested before your promotion presents itself to you. I cherish these words so much... endurance has become my strength... and there is always a rainbow in the thunder storm. Living alone is your ticket to flying high.
When you have your ideals and values you may often be left alone.. living alone in world that you believe in, is definitely better than living in a hell of which you have no part.
An eagle soars only with its kind.. often alone... Eagles do not socialize with the likes of the pigeons, the crowd mongers... Eagles do not flap around and flutter..they glide in the strength of their wings aided by the currents of air that lifts them even higher and to a lonlier place still!
Become the Eagle living alone and flying high!
