Who is your fallback..!!

Wonderful..must read..

 

People help you the way they know to help you.

To help you to come out of stress, one friend will ask you to drink and another will ask you to meditate. 

To overcome hurt, one friend will ask you to take revenge and get even,

and another will ask you to forgive and get ahead with your life.

‘Who is your fallback’ makes all the difference. 

Duryodhana’s predicament, in his own words, was, “I know what is right but I am not able to indulge in it.

I know what is wrong but I am not able to avoid it.”

He needed a fallback.

His fallback was his uncle Shakuni, and resultantly, Duryodhana moved from bad to worse. 

Arjuna’s predicament was different.

He was allowing his personal emotions to dominate his sense of duty,

and hence wanted to escape from the responsibilities he had towards upholding righteousness.

He needed a fallback.

His fallback was Krishna, and resultantly, Arjuna was restored to his greatness. 

Humans we are, at some point or the other, we all  need a fallback.

‘Who is your fallback’ makes all the difference.


Choose Well !!!

 

 

Note: in our case as sikhs, if we make Guru Jee and Gurbani our fallback, we shall always remain morally straight.

       REALITY OF LIFE

*"At  the  age  of  ten , he  is  a  child ;  

at  twenty ,  a  youth ,  

and  at  thirty ,  he  is  called  handsome .  

At  forty ,  he  is  full  of  life ;  

at  fifty ,  his  foot  slips ,

and  at  sixty ,  old  age  is  upon  him .  

At  seventy , he  loses  his  intellect ,

and  at  eighty ,  he  cannot  perform  his  duties .

At  ninety , he  lies  in  his  bed ,  and  he  cannot  understand  his  weakness .*

*After  seeking  and  searching  for  such  a  long  time ,

O Nanak ,  

I  have  seen  that  the  world  is  just  a  mansion  of  smoke ."*

One friend...   3 years earlier crossed 50...


 

Just about 8 days later an ailment was the excuse and a condolatory message  on the group ...Sad ..no more RIP 🙏

Two months later i called her husband. A thought crossed my mind ..he must be devastated.

Her spouse had a travelling job. Till her death she would oversee everything...home..education of their children..in laws..their sickness..relatives..everything
 

She would express at times..my house..my family ..but should we not get appreciation...why are we taken for granted?

I called up. I thought her hubby must be lost..to be responsible for evetything..aging parents, loneliness at this age..how must he be managing?

The cell phone rang for some time..the mind was perplexed...

After an hour he returned the call..He apoligised that he could not receive the call..He had started playing tennis for an hour at his club and meeting friends ensured he had a good time. He took a transfer to Pune.

All well at home , i asked.

He replied ..he had hired a cook ..he paid her more and she would buy the groceries and provisions.

He had hired full time caretaker for his aging parents. Managing..have to ..etc..I barely managed to say a couple of sentences and we hung up.

Tears welled up my eyes.

She was immovable from my vision.  She had missed the school reunion for minor ailment of het mother in law.  Looking for some appreciation and some applause..said she.

I feel like telling her...  No one is indispensable. And no one will be missed..it is play of our mind.

Perhaps it is the consolation...a symbol of our understanding if you would like to call it that...

That's the problem of putting others first.  You have taught them You come second Reality bytes.

After her death two more maids were hired. The house was in order.

We only measure our respect and our value..ain't that true?

Then do enjoy life..Remove the frame of mind that i am indispensable and without me my envoirements will suffer..🙏

Most importantly make the time for the self..🏃🏼‍♀️
