The Capital I | Inspiation

The Capital "I"

  • The Capital "I" stands like a wall between me and the rest of the world.

  • It does not let me experience the world around me.

  • I just exist in my own dark world where I am constantly trying to defend my actions, blaming others and blaming situations.

  • I am constantly begging love from others without ever giving it.

  • I have received help from so many people but never recognized it.

  • I am not aware of the hurts that I caused to others. I don't want to look into my own hurts which I have so fondly treasured for myself

  • The problem is that I don't know anything and still think I know everything.

  • I am never happy but I try to bluff myself that I am always happy.

  • The tragedy is that I don't even know that I need help.

  • I am a very brave person in the external world, but I don't have the courage to look into my own internal world.

  • Do I need Someone to guide me through this journey? May be a Friend who loves me the way I am.......without judging or condemning me.....

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
