Kamala Sarup: Peace & Freedom Needed To Survive

Peace And Freedom Needed To Survive


By Kamala Sarup

There are such people in this world who live in minimum remuneration. It is true that to live is not too easy as we think. The hard way of living might divide our path.

Ultimately to receive or having a successful life and freedom is to keep relative ideas like our aim of life. But what is making me distress is we are not understanding each other on humanity. Is peace always successful ? We can change the peace relation according to time It is mind, It can not remain unchanged. To quote an intellectual, 'As you are far from success, you posses nothing to rely on.' What you don't have, you may not be happy after having it. Success is not static . What makes you to feel proud of the thing is changeable. As joy and sorrow are momentary, so as respect and disrespect keep no meaning in the long run. So is the world where nothing is kept specially for you, peace.

Here nothing special is kept for us then also we are traveling in indefinite way in vain. I may die during this indefinite travel - yes die. After my death , humanity and peaceful freedom would keep some meaning for me. What I realize is that we can not take time in static manner. If we do so, we will be in sorrow. It is apparent , our life style is nothing but the continuous process of living. Why do we live in dream ? The fundamental feature of our life is change but we pretend our life to live only, to survive only. You declare yourself how difficult it is to bring into faith. We are defeating ourselves. Sometimes, we defeat ourselves with our own ideas.

The world where we have to live is full of scarcity and failure. But what is true is that sorrow and joy are momentary things in this world. You can't be happy forever. You, yes you are flying far from yourself. Unless you meet and recognize yourself , you can't be happy. 'Kamu ! we can't tie ourselves in the string of peace so soon. Prior to this, we must make able ourselves to survive.' You repeat the statement in every meeting which makes me to think the real definition of life. Whatever it may be, I have learnt a lot about life due to your company. I got chance to think about life. I must thank you for this. Yes, my freedom ! one should firmly determine about one's life. Unless we are independent, we can't accept the life in meaningful way.

I am distressed with the present unfavorable condition. It is true , no one shares our loneliness and hardships. Perhaps you will accept this assumption. How far you fly from hardship, that much you suffer from sorrow. As Rajanish has said, 'if you can't fly and change the problems, shut your eyes because the earthly tension and sorrow live outside , when you shut your eyes the relation with out word disconnects automatically.' I wonder to see endless sorrow of the world . Is there end ?

You keep the second position in my heart and mind, the first being God. So, I can not forget you. The relation between you and me is not generalized but I alone is not guilty for that. You are true to me and undivided like ideas. My freedom as we can not be confident for the present, likewise we can not accept the future blindly. What will be the end of our life? Will we be able to bear that or not ? If there grows unbearable pain, say how to beg the heart to accept that. I can't offer you more than my life, that's why I provide you the second position in my heart after God. You are not lesser than God to me.

The definition of truth and ours is same and I am in war to make the relation more sensitive and delicate, it is certain . War brings both positive and negative results. I might loose in war. I know , we have lost the time. The time has pulled us together in such a position where we are bound to make an agreement. The agreement will indicate a new path to proceed. Why does not the life run according to our will ?

My Freedom ! we can dedicate to lead life only when we are experienced about it but we have lost our way, it is divided. We should not deem our recognition as some people do. I dared to introduce you the meaning , depth, aim and dedication of love. It means I am mentally ready to make an agreement with pain and sorrow. We can't uplift ourselves beyond the definition of life . Life is short, man is mortal then also how difficult it is to lead a free life. After long struggle of freedom, I reached to you and possibly can proceed the life alone without you. Or, I can start an independent journey.

There is equal probability. The journey should not get full stop as there is no full stop of faith and love.
