There are many masks ( source Pinterest) but the one we wear is the invisible one. Not everyone can see, we mask our inner self to deceive and please. Mostly to please , because our reality is not acceptable in a world where beauty is skin deep.
Where richness is never questioned , so we hide our poverty. We hide under a cover ,leading a masked life. Sometimes we hide our age, at times our nature ,our back ground for getting praised for who or what we are not.
World is a mirror and we the unknown faces , silent witness to unbearable injustice and immoral behavior. We have lost our souls in search of recognition from those who lie and impose unrealistic standards.
Can we ever free from the mask and become pure and visible?
Vacations are many and most relaxing is the beach. Have you ever thought why? Let me tell you ; it is because the waves in the ocean has a magical heal. It sends its countless waves to touch your heel, and take away the sand under your feet. Sinking you inch by inch in the shore, making you realize that time is passing and you are with the nature, your value is no more than a minute passing in the universe.
It takes the burden off your shoulder from daily chores, it makes you choke when you watch the sunset or sunrise. The end and beginning of time and day leaves a strong sense of presence. You survived!
Survival is the most crucial of all feats, we try to defeat death , but actually death is never in a fight with life. Death comes to take us from life.
Standing alone I watch the sunset, just like a life from cradle to grave. yet, the entire time it emanates light, heat and waves. It gives energy to all that it face, continuously moving and rotating in space. A cycle of life, will go on till doomsday.
I stand and think, what have I done in this world to link, my worth to the next world that awaits me as per my faith. I am a believer I know my place.
I have come to this world to serve and please, I have come to submit my will for the betterment and peace. Have I done my role as given or had I deceived?
Question is how well have I faired and passed or failed. Result will get announced one day. But then, it would be too late.
