Opportunity

Opportunity

We live in an age when many of us are in fear and insecurity and a few many are in the feel of peace and abundance. In this age of speed and innovation, things got obsolete very fast and so as experience.
One day I was walking in a park in my own confusions; heard a group of people sitting together and there was a very loud debate. The debate was getting aggressive also.
I stood there to understand the happening and the reason.
‘We are more powerful than you. You don’t have any respect or loyalty. One day you have to pay for this. The cost will be very high.’
Other one responded in the same tone, ‘you don’t have seen or achieved big. Respect and loyalty are dependent on results today. You belong to old school of thought and it is out-dated now.’
The difference of age can be judged clearly. And I able to relate this with the people of middle age today.
In this tech-savvy environment, the pride of knowledge and experience has a very little age. The upcoming generation is more knowledgeable and effective than their predecessors. Their learning capacity is higher and so as their confidence; still they are in the same state; the fear, insecurity and confusion.
So we are in an age when many of us are in fear and insecurity and a few many in the feel of peace and abundance.
What is the difference between both?
The differentiator lies in the acceptance and adaptability; to stay as learner and welcome the opportunities.
Opportunities are much more than ever now.
After having two-three rounds, I find a corner bench to spend some more time with my own thoughts.
I attention was fixed at a beautiful tree in my front. A lush green colour, with all branches spread, shaping a big umbrella and the sun rays were just changing their colour on them.
In the meanwhile I find some energy with a combination of irritation and helplessness entered to my aura.
I asked, `who are you?’ I have just seen you there in a hot debate.
She replied, ‘I am Opportunity’.
I am the pursuit of almost everyone. Some seek for material things and some for satisfaction & peace; many have selfish motives and a few many seek for selfless purposes.
‘Then, why are you tensed?’ I asked her.
I am confused because of you human’s conduct, your thoughts are have contaminated us also. And this is the reason of the debate there and my helplessness also.
I am the most powerful; I give the power to the powerful and believe me that I am feeling helpless today. What a state!
The reason is fear, insecurity, greed and short-cut attached to me. Today my offspring are more than ever now. And still there is hunger and miseries.
I am feeling helpless and weak.
Opportunity continued. I am a symbol of abundance; human race has connected their scarcity mind-set to me. This raised the competition and insecurity. The gratitude is getting fade in the shine of pride and honour.
I am Omni-present like sky and space; you need to make me visible through your vision and capacity. People feel they give it to others or it is in hands of others. This is deceitful and illusion.
I am dependent upon the needs and purpose; wherever people find the capacities to add value, to satisfy the mutual purpose they connect. The common needs and challenges of life take the people together; I, opportunity, get my identity.
I asked, ‘Why did we feel that you are in scarcity then?’
This is because of your scarcity mind-set. Your mind starts with scarcity and comparison; bringing things to prove, instead of being. People work to prove their eligibility, instead of working on their eligibility.
There is some tomorrow that always scares you; and you belong to some yesterday that never allows you to move ahead. And you spread scarcity and fear.
Every day, every moment you find changes in your surroundings, you spread the message to change but you don’t change. How funny it is!
When you want to stay as it was, you carry the pride into this insanity. Instead of learning, you build a ritual from every happening; you declare others as lucky who work on me and get rise.
My aligned partners are abundance, gratitude and observation. They build purpose; help to be consistent and persistent. And above all an understanding of nothing is permanent; everything belongs to evolve; so as you.
I meet you at some corner again. Wish to prosperity and health.
