Couple of days back while going back home from office I saw a nomad. He had a garbage bag with him, his clothes, whatever could be seen, were dirty and torn, he had a quilt (with lots of patches) wrapped around his body, his hair grown long enough to reach his shoulders, all entangled and uncombed for years. He was crossing the street, which honked with speedy vehicles and rushing cars. He could have got hit, maybe even killed, but I couldn’t find fear anywhere close to him. he was calm, so calm that it made me nervous, he was just holding the bag and taking, taking small steps, looking down as if talking to the street, looking up once and never bothered to see what could happen. Its then that I realized what he had. He had ‘Nothing to loose’, ‘No lose to grieve’ and ‘No happiness to search’. he lived this moment and that’s all he cared. No past and no future, just Present.
It made me think and really think, what would life be without what we have now? How does one live with just this moment. It might sound crazy, but its true. If you want to live today let go of the fear of loosing. Its not yours and you cannot keep it with you. Its just there with you like your present. so don’t think of taking it anywhere. If it has to be, it will be and if not then it won’t.
Be alive today and rest destiny will decide.
