What light bulb teaches...

Life is always submerged in darkness like the rest of the Universe. A powerful source like the Sun brightens it up. Similarly even among people darkness persists and to vile it away enlightened minds turn up. To be one of those enlightened soul is the secret desire of every mind. The path of spirituality is one method of attaining enlightenment. Yet again it is not an easy task. To lighten up the Entire Solar System Sun has to endure unimaginable torture of heat and melt at the core during the process. We can accept the fact that man has risen up to all circumstances to overcome darkness through artificial means; take light bulb as an example. But the principle that works with man is the same with the light bulb too. For the bulb to give light, the filament (soul) has to endure the high voltage of electricity and become red hot converting the resistance its material presents finally coming aglow to lighten up our world. Let this be the path our souls follow too to come aglow. Converting the resistance of our mind and body to gradually illuminate our soul…

Being a woman...

When I was a little girl I used to be afraid of darkness, light was my world of wonders... But as I grew light became my worst fear.. You might think why.. Because light helps me see.. Sight? why do I hate light because of my sight?? Light revealed the constant eyes staring at me, strong hands reaching to grasp at me, dangerous smiles, people in beguiles and darkness hides it all away.. I don't see in the darkness and people don't see me , I feel safe. Light makes me visible as well as them... When night descents it wraps me in the safety of darkness one which I felt only in my mother's womb. I remember that even I enclose within me that safe chamber of darkness.. The next day again as light tears through the darkness revealing me, that safe chamber of darkness becomes my sole weakness which again signals the eyes, the hands and the smiles my way... But then again I comfort myself that one day a new soul will feel safe again in my chamber of darkness preparing for the world outside.. to become my pride...
