TO BELIEVE OR NOT TO BELIEVE
By Ashish Kaul
Fengshui is very similar to Vastu in the Indian subcontinent. Many a years back my fengshui expert had suggested making a wish list. This list is like a nice point wise list of what you want in your life or I suppose what you wish you had in life. I presume on completion of this list one plans to achieve salvation.
Few times a thought did occur to me… Is the wish listing going to be on the basis of my desire or want… or will it be on the basis of my deserving it…! Well, the expert had already left for the term after the settlement of the payment.
Now so many years later, I have another query… as the list is more or less complete; most of the wishes have been granted.
So… do I wish for more or do I feel thankful to the Almighty for fulfilling my dreams and wishes…!!!
There is no answer to my questions. Humans are a breed which are never satisfied.
More we wish more we get. There is no doubt about that. But then again our wishes expand.
What starts as a small habit … then … turns into a bigger greed. Every individual is to one self, there is no competition actually. If humans are like any other species, one might study there is no competition between a cow, a buffalo, a tiger, a lion, a horse or a mule.
Some might not agree with the comparison, as man is to be a superior being. Actually it doesn’t matter because I am not debating man’s status here.
My motive is simply to verify from someone… should I be making a new list or should I be content with the first list, which has been fulfilled…!!!
One might suggest it’s up to me, whether I am happy or not. Well, even before I was quite happy and let me assure you I am still a happy soul.
Do enlighten me someone… when the salvation level is achieved…!!!
