WAIT… WAIT… WAIT…!!
“Oh GOD..!! I am fed up of waiting now. How long I need to wait?
Are you listening to me?
Why am I supposed to wait so long?
Why can’t things happen fast, on time & the way I want?”
Waiting – I think no one on this earth has escaped this experience of waiting. There are so many forms of waiting & so many ways of reacting to these.
The word gains significance w.r.t. time frame allotted by us. It can be based on how long it takes or how fast we want it to happen.
Waiting for few things is just natural & obvious. For instance, waiting for rain, waiting for spring, waiting for day, waiting for night or waiting for weekend. This is self created wait, just because we are longing to see the change for a particular reason. These are all pre-defined things no matter how impatiently we wait & these will happen for sure no matter we want to see that change or not. I would term this category as “ILLOGICAL WAIT”.
Then comes, routine life waiting. This one is based on punctuality, crowd, and unavoidable resistances. Waiting for bus/train, waiting in a queue, waiting for someone. This is completely unavoidable most of the times and is the most irritating one. You rarely know how long you need to wait. Some people adjust themselves to these and try to handle the situation calmly while others keep cursing the situation & the system. These are all momentary waits that distracts/ disturbs us for a while but end up soon. I would term this category as “IRRITATING WAIT”.
And then comes, the most difficult category that is totally based on our desires and expectations. This form of waiting is undefined, unpredictable, without any boundaries / time frame. At times, it relies just on imagination & belief and at times it is based on realistic goals. How well we can cope with these actually defines how patient and adaptable we are to the current situation. At times, we have the illusion of getting nearer to our target & then we realize, it’s still the same distance away.
We either keep moving with belief, with courage, with patience. I would term this category as “REASONABLE WAIT”,
Or, we get panicked, irritated, frustrated & just give up. I would term this category as “FRUSTATING WAIT”.
It’s necessary to set some goals & targets to keep yourself moving & growing. It’s inevitable to have desires & expectations. To achieve these we obviously, make some plan, do some efforts & eagerly start waiting for results. Sometimes, things flow the way we want but not always. This is where we need to understand the role of GOD, our destiny & our fate.
“KARMA KARO FAL KI ICCHA MAT KARO” – Bhagwad Gita
“Do the actions but don’t have desire for fruitful results.”
Leave those to the will of GOD, and keep moving enjoying your present.
Always remember, if you keep worrying for the future you may end up ruining your present. Learn to live the present and plan the future but never get so busy planning it that you forget living your present.
WHAT IS YET TO COME IS ALWAYS A MYSTERY,
IT’S ONLY THE PRESENT THAT IS REALITY,
LIVE IT… ENJOY IT…!!
