I always keep wondering how difficult it is to live in your present phase. Some of us live in the past or some of us live and only think about the future. How many of us actually live in our present with respect to our emotions, mind and thought processes. I really do not have an answer for this and maybe will never find an answer either. My mind is so restless and scattered. I find it very difficult to focus and concentrate. I wonder if others experience as I do. Emotional urges, thought processes and intuitive abilities are extremely volatile and mercurial in temperament; especially the way they affect our life and the way or manner in which we decide or our ability to make decisions. I am no one to judge or analyze this because my mind is prone to the same restrictions and constrains; under which every human mind survives and functions.
Since my thoughts are always scattered and fragmented. I can never have a seamless or a consistent flow of thinking. This only proves my lack of focus or concentration. A virtue I am not blessed with. Unfortunately as of now; I do not read much. However, a couple of years ago; when the burden of making a living was not so tense or chronic. I did read a few books and am grateful to British Council for the same. Reading chisels your mind; makes you a visual thinker. Buying books is expensive and a privilege I could never afford to indulge in. When you wish to read a bit; but cannot afford to buy every book you come across. Then the best option is to opt for a library. British Council has some really good collection in it’s stock. A few years ago one had the option or the facility to visit the library. You could screen through the book shelves, sit back for a while, read or browse through the books you intend to borrow. By the end of the day you had the shortlisted few book; you were allowed to rent for a number of days. This was far more comfortable for souls as weird as I am. Some of the best books I have read were from the British Council Library.
The current scenario is all about online circulation and renting. Once you avail the membership; you get a login to access the database of books on circulation. You select the books online and they deliver them to your address. Convenient and feasible: if you have a house or an address of your own. Unfortunately for someone like me: who is a vagabond and has no permanent address or a place of my own. This convenience becomes a pleasure difficult to access. I am certain for one thing: the team that selects and manages the collection of books. They know their job pretty well and are extremely resourceful in their approach.
The reason I emphasize and stress the importance of reading. Is because just the way people do physical exercises: to keep themselves healthy and stress free. The same way, reading is an exercise of the mind, your intellectual prowess. For the past of couple of years, I have not read a single book and I can see the degeneration. My mind Is more restless, scattered and it becomes a tedious task for me to concentrate; which makes me dig into my past or look for the future. It is not easy for people to live and think in their present; and I am one such foolish soul. Present is what is important and when we do not live in our present. We are running away from the battlefield and are not making any attempts to live or to survive. Life is all about survival and to make the most of your abilities to survive. We need to live in the present and accept what comes through.
Even when it comes to tarot readings: the emphasis is always on the present. I will not deny that the reason why people approach any card reader is because they are curious about the future. You seek for the future or the unknown when your present is painful and one is looking for an escape. There are times when we cannot resolve the present crisis and cannot face it either. Even then, we cannot discount the fact that the present phase or issue needs to be resolved so as to ensure a peaceful future. What we all know is that the human soul does not wish to suffer. So the moment anything unpleasant comes up. We look for a way out by cursing the past or other people. Or by hoping for a peaceful and prosperous future. Who does not love wishful thinking in times of panic? We all do. What is difficult is to face the present. What is crucial right now will shape our survival instincts.
I have published a few articles or blogs over the years on the World Wide Web. I am immensely grateful to all those web sites; who have allowed me to publish my content on their portals. However, I do not come across much of comments or feedback; from people who read my content. May be: because very few people read my articles or blogs. I do not know why. Whether the articles or blogs that I publish; are too inconsequential or unimportant to comment on. Or people who read my content are too busy to spend five minutes of their time on a feedback and mail it across to me. For me every single reader is important. So please do write back if you have an opinion on my writing. I am open to all kinds of criticism as long as you make an effort to criticize. I will never know my mistakes, it is the reader who can make me realize where I have gone wrong.
