Lesson relearned

To be honest, truth has several layers. Learning something as an idea or logic is probably the thinnest outermost layer. Until we act it out regularly in a disciplined manner, the core of the truth remains illusive.

Today I rediscovered the value of thankfulness. Here are some reasons.

I am thankful that after so many years, I can feel love. It took me a ridiculously long time to learn this simple act of ” how to love”.

I am thankful to have realized that what ultimately matters is how you made someone feel.

I am thankful to still have the opportunity to thank people who have helped me. I realized this opportunity does not last forever.

I am thankful for the reminders that my parents provide when sometimes I feel confused. I am thankful for the insightful words and songs of Rabindranath Tagore that my parents bring my attention to. In this context I would like to share the latest reminder. “I have invited sin itself in the process of punishing the sinner.”

I am thankful to have been guided to essential truths of life by the true Teacher. I am forever thankful to You for this opportunity to journey through life.
