~ Race / Embrace ~

Surprising to see certain words become a part of the other. The meaning too reveals the contradictory side when seen as a part. One such is Stranger-- Anger. when anger enters, even the closest known person becomes a stranger.

In this world of action and achievement, its like a running race. Sometimes madly running behind anything and everything without even knowing where its leading to. The competitiveness is the fragrance of this mad running from pillar to post until a break down happens or something within taps you. Thats when embracing begins to happen. In search of the Real Self, one learns to embrace -- accept anything and everything, for it knows there is none to compete with. Its whole and the individual is only a part of the whole. From being whole, the run still continues in the external world, just with a difference -- no longer a running race but just a free run!

No timings to clock, none to compete with, no grading, no one awaiting to mark you, no beginning and no end, no, no....... Simply watch the children when they run in an open field, or a park especially the moment they reach the place. Its a joy of freedom -- Free run!

Thought ---
Watch the one that runs
Dont be caught in the running.

Merging Point, what an enlightening post. We spend too much time running from ourselves and it does take an acceptance that we are truly part of a bigger whole before our footsteps make sense. :D

Hugs, JJ
