In the beginning of my graduation, I knew not who I was...I knew not my likings and dislikings...I knew not the purpose of my existence on Earth..All I knew was that I had to excel in my chosen field of study - Law...All I knew was that I had to study exerting myself into the subjects...into the vast ocean of knowledge...
This well and good, God had other plans for me...He wanted to teach me the ways of life...And I am grateful to him for having done so..! He taught me to understand me..He taught me to understand people...He taught me to understand their manipulation...He taught me to understand their psychology...
Now, I have reached such a point wherein I am tempted to be nice to my perceived "enemies"...At the same time, I am tempted not to get involved with them emotionally...Smile for a smile...Smile for a frown...And in both the cases, the smile got to be of the same qualitative intensity...When I say I am tempted not to get emotionally involved with them, it stands understood that even when I return a smile for a smile, I am tempted not to do this with a feeling inside of me that that "enemy" of mine has "transformed" and has "realised" the "truth"...I ought not to give much thought as to whether the person has really "understood" or no...It is immaterial...At the same time, hating them is also immaterial...Loving them too, is unnecessary...What I need to do is be friendly to all..! All means all..! No grudges..! No ill feelings..! No discomforts..! Truly boundaryless..!
Here, a substantial question of concern may arise as to how should the natural loving and trusting propensity of a human being like me be managed...
For this, the answer is very simple...the focal point of all love, faith, trust, hope, happiness and bliss has to be Me..! For, in me lies God..! In me lies the Divinity..! I should love myself more than anyone..! Only after me, shall I be loving all my dear ones...But, one important fact to be kept in mind is, I love them...this should not mean I am dependent on them...I ought to be dependent on myself only..! Because, in myself alone lies God..! In me lies the happiness I am seeking in others..!
I love this..!
Thank you, God..!
Break open all the shackles....be free...be seamless...be one with the One...be Boundaryless..!!
You are me....I am You....We are the Universe...We are the trees, the insects, the animals.....We are Our Enemies...We are Our Hatred....We are the Love...Love thyself....You will love the Universe....Hate yourself....and you will discern that you are the most hated..!!

Everyday opens up with a new opportunity to experience life in its entirety...Everyday opens up for ourselves to love the world we are in, gives us an opportunity to let go off the past, to make peace with our enemies and to feel the satisfaction derived out of forgiveness... Everyday makes us realize we are something more than our body...We are divinity embodied in us..We are the power...We share our ancestry with the Sun; for, it is God who has created the Sun and all of us...Everyday makes us realize that we possess in us, the same amount of resplendent aura and energy, as does the Sun...We have in us, the same amount of patience and love, as does the Earth, in containing all its beings...Everyday makes us realize what wonderful packages of energy we all are..! What wonderful embodiments of peace, love and happiness we all are..! Every rising Sun stands testimony to the impeccable courage and determination we all possess, like the Sun, who falls everyday, but rises with a renewed vibrant brightness, to spread happiness and cheer everywhere..Everyday we wake up feeling grateful to the soothing feeling of the sleep we would have just then have had...We wake up to live life in its entirety, yet again, making peace with our "enemies"..I call them "enemies" and not enemies because, enemies do not exist...they are the creations of our minds...For, everyone is the child of God...and thus everyone has a chance of redemption...None of us is perfect...Everyday makes us realize how important it is to forgive the mistakes of others...Everyday drives home the truth that in forgiveness alone lies the ultimate freedom of the mind from the past...in forgiveness alone lies a bright future...Everyday makes us realize that forgiveness may not mean rebuilding the broken bonds; in fact, it makes us realize that how important it is to just let go off the corpse of the dead past..and embrace the beautiful present in its entirety..! How beautiful everyday is..! How peaceful everyday is..! How it makes us love the people around us..! How it makes us boundaryless..! All praise be to you, God..! All praise be to you..!
