Coping

struggle1

All things work together for good.

But when you are still in the mills…anywhere before getting the good, it sure doesn’t feel good…!

Our over-preoccupation with ‘how’ and ‘now’ can be mind-paralysing.

Yet as creatures of intelligence, we are enamoured by details, we don’t want to be left in mystery for too long. We want to know. We want to tout our informed positions in the face of any contingency, you know, it really makes us feel so strong and confident…

Just how will things play out? “I don’t know!”

…this response is not just a reply of fact but could be a forced protest to be left alone…to not make a big deal of what appears to be temporary cluelessness…you know, like it’s unfair to be the spectacle of everyone’s disgust now, not after all we have invested in knowledge…and having witnessed a couple situations or so with others looking helpless and could never see ourselves in their shoes, ‘cos we were (allegedly) too far gone in life to be so disenchanted…you just mumbled a few verses of pity in your mind and you were done with such a simple thing, you flaunted.

Now, what are you? Did it not come round to plague your own patterns as well? You couldn’t believe it? And now? When you see what people struggle with, would you be too quick to dismiss it? Mindlessly? …and rail all kinds of accusations on these sufferers? Why don’t you wait, let it be an x-ray on your soul. Let it alert you of struggles you know not of yet crouching tentatively in your innermost being…only waiting for an opportune time. Your time will come…when you will feel weaker than your immune system earlier portrayed…how will you then cope?

“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly…”
