A Tale of Life and Death

Imagine yourself to be a space of emptiness or air.

You exist, everyone could feel you, but they don’t see you.

You are aware of yourself, and everybody else’s physical existence.

You’re now given a body and 5 senses. What would you do?

You’ll begin to experience your life differently.

Now you’re also given a mind to think, to reason out.

With this gift comes also a curse: You forget who you really are.

You think you’re this body, and these senses.

But you are given ‘like-minded’ friends to spend your time with.

You look around what others in your culture doing.

You follow the norms to be one among them.

You want to feel safe about your life. You add more and more material wealth to you.

Sometimes you involve in ‘wrong’ doings to achieve these goals.

But then, there comes a day, where you are asked to give back everything you were given.

You cry!

You cry because you think your gained knowledge, and wealth are taken away.

You perceived all these gifts to be ‘always’ yours, and these gifts are you yourself,

You cry harder because you now feel you lose yourself.

You cry yourself to ‘Death’.

You go back to your Origin.

You become aware of your Truth, once again.

You realize everything uptil your last cry is nothing but a ‘Dream’.

Someone comes to you and offers a handful of gifts again: The body, the mind, the senses, and people.

Now, you are aware that these gifts are not your possessions; nor they are you.

You choose to accept these gifts once again but you are more conscious of your Truth.

Now, the life becomes more interesting. You experience all the shades of life, the gift that was given to you.

Pleasure and Pain are alike to you.

And when the day arrives, you don’t cry anymore, unlike the last time.

You happily depart back to your Home.
