Today

 

This happens occasionally and it happened again this morning, a car from a different lane, knowing that I was on the lane still drove on and almost knocked into me. Making me swerve into a different lane, fortunately the driver on the other lane noticed and slowed down his car. The driver in his huge car acted as if nothing happened and just drove on in spite of my honking and insistent glaring. They never bother, to them here is a motorbike getting in their way.  

The key is when an individual is calmer that is, he is to understand the state of the world and where the rich step on the weak and get away with it. Anger doesn’t solve anything. The anger of a poor person only troubles himself and not others. Acknowledging the state of the world and understanding how it works will get us another day to survive. The world does not serve the poor, it oppresses them. Yea here I go again, being bitter and spiteful, you say. No I am not. I am just saying it as it is and I am not angry. I was angry that the driver didn’t care for a life and I was angry for being weak… and after realizing that there is no way for impartiality, I rode on.

If only the poor didn’t stick up for the rich and stood up more for the poor. It would’ve made at least some difference. I am grateful that I am still in one piece. I got lucky. Fellow friends, understand how the world works, accept your destiny, and most importantly work effortlessly on enhancing your spirituality; for in inner peace lies all kinds of ease and in enriching the soul one discovers the key to calmness. Let us be more accepting of who we are and pray to be people of understanding and with loads of control over our temperaments.

My teacher once told me, “Don’t fight for yourself, leave that to God. However, fight for the right of others.”
