On my home-yoga-practice, I really give myself enough time on that shavasana. Its a thoughtless state and sometimes after I’m out, there is this rush of thoughts which feel like someone is putting words in my head. One of those shavasana experience I would like to share:
ज़िंदगी एक पतंग उड़ाने जैसा
ज़िंदगी एक पतंग उड़ाने जैसा है,
कभी माँझे को ढील और कभी खिंचना है।
हवा के रूख को महसूस करना होगा;
हर पल में ध्यान लगाना होगा।
सब सीखेगा तू चिंता ना करना,
बस मंज़िल को मन में याद रखना।
लटाई लिए बंधू है पीछे खड़ा,
जिसके बिना ना कोई उड़ान हो पूरा।
ज़िंदगी है एक पतंग उड़ाने जैसा,
हर पल में है अनुभव वैसा ।।
Life is just like flying a kite, you work and rest and that continues and the cycle never stops till the end. I love to learn but as I write I realise that only work is not learning, you also learn when you are resting.I don’t want to miss out on any possibility of learning, so I’ve only been working my brain and mind. Doing nothing is a rest to the brain so when its working the next time it will learn more.
Being too focused, goal-oriented and controlled about my life makes me forget to feel all the effort going into making it amazing and I forget to breathe. I overwork and then gasp for air. I can also plan my days and weeks and everything I do, in a way that its relaxing and has its spaces to breathe.Its not about numbers, achievements, goals achieved, it is about feeling and experiencing every single moment.
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Life happens in every single second as I write , right now, now in every moment. The previous moment is gone and it is a memory in the mind. You can dwell in the previous moment and feel sad or nostalgic but that isn’t your present life. Life is in every tick of life as you read. So its all about letting go a little when things are not in the direction we expected and going head on when everything is in favour of what we want.
In every way of living it is like flying a kite.
