As the dawn breaks and before a new day full of numerous possibilities starts it’s energetic dance, I steal a few quiet moments of reflection. As I look back at my life and ponder on all my accomplishments, missed opportunities, shortcomings and belongings, I feel a surprising lack of passion and emotion as I conduct the audit of my life.
All the moments of ecstasy and heartbreak appear to be so distant and foggy, almost like a scene from an old movie. All the accomplishments seem so trivial and childlike. All the tragedies and disappointments appear to have lost their sting.
I feel a sense of equanimity as I dispassionately review the lessons learnt during each painful moment of life. I realise the immense contribution of these events to my understanding, evolution and growth. A wave of gratitude for the divine consciousness swells within.
The ego of doer-ship vanishes as the understanding of the Divine Play unfolds. I realise the invisible hand of the universal consciousness in each of my accomplishments.
I realise that I am a mere actor in the Play enacted on the Stage of Life. The Play is directed by the all knowing Supreme Consciousness that is ever present. My life is as per the script of the Divine Director and I play a small yet significant role in the Play.
The script is complete, the scene is complete, the timing is complete, the fellow players are complete, the Play is complete, I and my role are complete and the Divine Director is complete.
“Om poornamadah poornamidam poornaat poornamudachyate,
Poornasya poornamaadaaya poornamevaavashishṣyate” – Isha Upanishad.
For that is how it has been willed in the Divine Play of Life. All happens at the right time and as willed by the divine charioteer.
Om Shanti Shanti Shantihi,
Love, Light and Gratitude,
