Openness

There is a great conditioning on what you are expected to be at a particular place. For example, at the workplace, there are certain expectations from you and thus all your actions and behaviour are directed by or are influenced by your role in the organization. This may result in you developing your vision are per the demand of the job. This cannot be taken as the personalized vision, which could be as different or great as writing a book or working for a social cause or raising your voice against corruption. This kind of vision setting, dependent vision or limited vision, is not preferred by the inner voice. Instead there is a better suggestion. First, you create your own vision or purpose of life, then see who all have a similar vision or purpose, and then find ways to get associated with them or if there is some space with you, associate them with yourself. Then the magic will happen. The spirit will augment and this will make life more than interesting and engaging. For example, the purpose of the Buddha's life was to find the truth of life. He found it. Then since he was all alone, he had a lot of space to associate others, accommodate them in the spreading his vision or purpose. Very soon after his enlightenment, not only did he increased his circle of associates, which were latter called Boddhitsavas, but also established relations with almighty states, nations and kings and maharajas. Such was his vision; such was his purpose. His vision was not a vision given by someone else. Rather he had himself decided to do what he ultimately did. This originality was the hallmark of all what the Buddha did in his life. Since such an authenticity is available for each one of us, there is hardly any room to say, 'I didn't get an opportunity in my life to do something.' The task we have is to find which vision is meant for us and how, what, why, when, where parts of that vision will be taken care off, automatically, by the universe.

A pair of comfits

A  pair  of  comfits  (the  doctor  sandals)  is  just  a  pair  of  comfits.  It  walks  its  wearer  out  in  comfort.  Sometimes,  the  reason  for  which  it’s  bought  makes  it  special;  it  becomes  a  pair  of  uncommon  comfits.  
Hence,  the  incident  of  Mr.  Kapoor.  He  remembered  how  he  felt  that  the  pain  in  his  knees  had  reduced  since  he  started  using  the  pair  of  comfits.  It  was  a  new  pair  gifted  to  him  by  his  beloved  wife  on  his  last  birthday. 
Initially,  he  was  hesitant  to  buy  any  birthday  gift.  He  thought  that  exchanging  birthday  gifts  is  a  practice  among  kids,  teens  and  youth.  He  had  crossed  forty;  he  shouldn’t  be  into  all  this.  In  addition,  he  wished  for  a  non-pompous,  silent  birthday  that  can  be  celebrated  best  with  the  family  and  good  food.  But  his  wife  pursued  him  to  buy  something  for  daily  use  on  his  birthday.  She  reasoned  that  she  would  go  and  buy  som…
