In India, Celebrations of Navaratri is on and tonight is the last night when celebrations will reach their peak. Meat and alcohol lovers wait for tomorrow in anticipation when Life for them starts again. Vegans shudder at such thoughts of the carnivores.
Fasting and restraint is practiced by most during these 9 days and nights. In an attempt to go inwards, the tradition was created. People live without their seemingly compulsive habits. They eat alternative foods. It is a comprehensive exploration of alternative thoughts, ideas, foods and routines. Have we learnt or realised anything out of this exercise, is up to us.
Realising is a habit and a life state that some people live with. Others live with justifications and arguments. Once such habits are formed, we either keep evolving by understanding how wrong we have been or we keep proving how right we are.
Getting realisations require a conducive atmosphere at home and at work place, an intent to evolve and grow, and no intent to prove our intelligence to anyone.
No one can stop growth and evolution for those who walk the path of realisation. No one can propel growth for those who walk the path of justifications and arguments.
Which is your path?
