In the Chaos, I met PEACE!

I will never forget! I can never forget what i experienced the other day.

Am sure it must had happened with you, not once or twice but many times in life that somethings you see, they get imprinted on your heart.

It could be the smiling face of your kid when they won their first prize, it could be the tear of joy in the eyes of the person you love when they met you after ages, it could be anything and am leaving rest of them to come into your head and put a smile on your face. 🙂

And that’s what i got too this time, an imprint on my heart!

.

.

It was not a person, not a place , it wasn’t something that i could ever expect that i will find in a city that i don’t like at all.

But there it was, something beyond words to put here, something beyond our reach most of the times.

.

.

It was 5Am in the morning, still dark outside, back in my city the streets would had been empty. But in this city where i was, 5am felt like 5pm in evening.

That city was awake, everybody was wide awake when i was in half brain dead motion because of the overnight journey and lack of sleep. And on top of that i had this unending tension dwelling with time because of the exam i had to take in the next few hours.

I am sure you can understand how it feels when you don’t sleep at night, and then you are worried to death for the exam that you could not prepare much for.

So, i was tired, very tired, and now we had to go across the road to the metro station.

Good thing was that i just had a hand bag with me to carry along and no other baggage except my body that wasn’t cooperating at all and i had to literally drag myself.

.

.

 I started walking up stairs of the bridge to get to the other side and when i reached the top and was walking, i saw something.

.

.

I saw that there were many homeless people sleeping on that bridge, very heart wrenching it was to see that.

.

.

It was so awfully painful to see that some people cant even afford a shelter or a place to sleep.

How unfortunate is that!

I felt the pain in my heart but then, when i was on the bridge i saw that there was an unending traffic crossing under that bridge.

.

.

The traffic was bad even at that time, honking, braking, making all the noise in the world.

And then there were lights, so many lights to ensure that the darkness was least to find.

.

I looked at these people, i looked at one and then the other and then the next one.

.

.

Every person that was sleeping on that bridge had The Peace on their faces.

Walking on that bridge i just had one question in my mind.

How?

.

.

How could they sleep so peacefully?

There were endless lights, no silence, no bed nothing.

.

.

There was that hard floor under them, just the tin shelter above them, no pillow, no darkness, no comfort!

But, yet, they were sleeping so peacefully like nothing exists around them.

I felt the peace within me, just by looking at their state of comfort in such surroundings.

.

.

I felt pity for them at once but then i realized that even though we have all the materialistic comforts in the world, we all still run after peace all of our lives . And on the other hand were these people, who had nothing with them but yet they had everything because they had the PEACE!

.

.

Well, this doesn’t end here!

As soon as i got off that bridge and in to the metro station, i had something else waiting for me.

.

.

I was walking fast, trying  to find out from where the hell i need to board the train.

All worried, as in back of my head i was thinking that i just need one more revision, just one more time i need to go through those pages and i will be good to go.

And suddenly i see a man sitting in the corner of the station, eyes closed, dressed in the most casual clothes, and meditating.

.

.

What the hell is going on in this city? I thought!

He was from some foreign country and not a native that i could surely see.

I know, many people come to my country to seek answers to the unanswered questions of life.

Until now i had heard of it but i saw it the other day that no matter where are you from, no matter where you are, its in darkness or in light, all that matters is when you are able to look within.

.

.

Sometimes it takes you across the countries, across the oceans to see that light within and sometimes its your own place, or city or the bridge where you find that light.

And on that bridge and in that station i saw the light. It wasn’t illuminating, it wasn’t bright but it was soothing and comforting that brought me to peace!

Not everyday you get to see such wonders of being alive. Cherish what you have, life isn’t going to be easy but it wont be too harsh as well.

Cheers!!
