I have been enjoying a comfortable, unambitious life since November 2019, after the surgery. Reading, sleeping, following a hobbit-like diet (Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Elevenses, Luncheon, Afternoon tea, Dinner & Supper) keeping me busy throughout the day.
Sometimes I try to indulge in some deep productive thoughts, for instance, I may ponder “What is the purpose of my life?” which mostly gets interrupted by my mother with a delicious and warm cup of soup instantly giving a clear picture of the purpose of at least that particular moment.
Lately, I started taking short breaks from my busy schedule of lying around for strolling in the nearby park. On 1 Jan 2020, about mid-day as I was not so enjoying my walk in the strictly confined green area of New Delhi, trying really hard to ignore the annoyingly silent yet heavy and chill wind. Though the Sun was peeking from those smog darkened clouds, it seemed as if he had no power to warm up things at that moment. Suddenly I felt my frozen mind slowly slipping into an introspective mode, which got me almost overwhelmed with the gratitude of all the beautiful things happened in 2019. I was also baffled on the thought that I have already spent almost 3 decades on this beautiful planet, consumed a lot of free oxygen and sunlight, grown-up to almost 150cm, visited new places, met new people, experienced various emotions like pain, fear, faith, hope, love, to name a few; but the greatest of all is indeed love!
If you ask what is the most important takeaway? I must say “value each moment at hand as it has a lot to offer. Do not dwell in the past and do not just wait for future moments, what you have is the present, so seize it and this particular moment makes your eternity!
C.S Lewis rightly quotes, “For the present is the point at which time touches eternity”
We all pray, wish and look forward to a happy and prosperous new year, a new decade, a new beginning but all our creator wants from us is to be faithful to Him in this very moment. So I promised to be faithful, trustworthy and not leave His arm in this beautiful journey. I wonder, like my new year resolutions and goals I may succeed for a day, a week or a month but might eventually end up betraying and failing Him at the very next moment. Sometimes I ask myself, or maybe I am being asked from within, “If God can trust me with the next moment or a day?
As it’s already a brand New Year of this journey on this blue planet governed by time, seasons and various laws of nature. A humble request to my Heavenly Father the owner and creator of everything I can and cannot see and the author and finisher of this big story, as once Moses also asked, “If your Presence does not go with me, don’t send me up from here”!
Happy New Year Fellas! Have a blessed year ahead!
May God Almighty Bless You All!
