Pains are Blessings!!! Be Grateful!!!
‘Hello Manav! How are you?’
“I am good, but who are you?”
‘I am feeling you are in deep grief; unable to cry even, just sobbing silently.’
“What do you want? Who are you?”Manav just raised his eye brows and asked with irritation.
‘I can understand your unrest dear! I am Now! I am present.’
“Means?”Manav expressed his surprise and confusion.
‘Ok. Before anything else, ask your inner self; are you not in deep grief? Sometimes in some kind of hatred?’
“I can’t hate anybody,” Manav responded aggressively.
‘And what about grief and distrust?’
“Yes, they are there; always there. I am deeply hurt by the people in the past. You know, my people have never supported me; they have ditched me; never appreciated my work and contribution; even they have abandoned me in many occasions.”
“Nothing. I got strength, awareness and consciousness. I don’t allow anybody to hurt me anymore. I am successful; well recognized and accepted by the people at large.”
‘But are you happy?’
“Yes I am!”
“What do you need? Who are you to ask me?”
‘I am time; I am now; I am a healer. I heal one or the other, every moment, every day. This is your turn now. What has hurt you the most? Where are its roots?’
“The reason why I am hurt is people, my people. They are no more mine.”
‘And where is the root?’
‘The roots are always in the past. They, your people, are no more yours, then for how long you can carry their hurt? Do you know that this hurt is a blessing to you?’
‘Have you not spread love and compassion among people? Don’t you carry love and compassion deep inside?’
“Yes! This is the way people know me. I am known for this only.”
‘Now see, what God has done to you. People fail to carry and spread love and compassion for the unknown, neglected and ignored, because of their attachment; attachment with their own. The hurt is the tool for you. It has opened your doors and things for many. It has facilitated you to focus more on your purpose and passion.’
‘Nobody has the capacity to hurt us, except our expectations and emotional vulnerability.’
‘This hurt is a blessing for you; and you have converted this blessing into pain. This hurt has supported you for empathizing with the hurt and pain of others. Your compassion and love for all, are the offsprings of that hurt only.’
“May be! But I don’t agree. What do you want to say now? Is it not painful?”
‘Yes, it is. Can you tell me, where is its root? Is it now or past or future?’
“Definitely in the past!”
‘So it means, that you are carrying a blessing of the past, in the form of pain; allowing that pain to attract more pain to your life now. You have allowed that pain to hurt you now; to create a deep fear for the repetition of that hurt ; and every time your pain and fear is proving you right. Hurt is repeating itself.’
‘Every minute, your compassion and love for others is balancing you against this pain and fear; and this pain sometimes, unknowingly, unintentionally is getting converted into revenge.’
“Am I so?”
‘You are not that. Your pain has evolved you so; you are a beautiful, compassionate and loving being inside.’
Manav was in tears. He requested, “Please help me. You have understood me; touched me with depth and dared to speak upfront when others have tried to hide from me completely. I was hiding it from myself. Please help me.”
‘Are you willing?’
“Yes. Why not?”
‘Be sure first. People start enjoying their pain, hurt and grief. Their mind starts establishing the identity from that only. They keep them alive by sharing with everybody.’
‘Now’ holding the hands of Manav supported him. He hugged him tight and said, ‘Forgive them all; name everybody one by one and forgive them all.’
Manav tried to free himself. Now was strong enough. He told him, ‘Let your mind endure and identity with this pain.’
Manav started following Now.
‘Forgive your parents. See them and forgive them.’
‘Forgive your spouse.’
‘Forgive your children.’
‘Forgive every relative. Forgive every friend, colleague and team member.’
‘Forgive the remaining.’
Manav was crying.
‘Manav! You have detached everybody and the pain attached with them. You are free to your share of joy and peace. You are free to own abundance and resourcefulness.’
Manav was feeling very light and relaxed.
Now had thanked him and was departing.
Manav stopped him and asked, “What shall I do if they return?”
‘Be grateful. They are testing your acceptance, humility and patience; your unconditional love and compassion. You can hurt yourself or heal yourself.’
Be Grateful: Keep Forgiving: Stay Blessed!!!
