Well, this is it. Another year is done and we are looking to the clouds how and where it all went. But nature is no cheat. There is no lapse of a day, of a moment or even a blink. We live it. We are aware of it. We breathe each breath full.
One thing that I learnt while I was living 2022 was that even though I enjoy writing, it cannot be my end all. I take joy in walking more, in seeing and being at a place that urges me to contemplate, to talk to it. Somewhere that pushes me to dive deeper in aspects that i wasn’t aware of before. I love movement and I love challenging myself around those movements.
So I have decided I am not going to make resolutions anymore because somewhere deep within we know what is required of us at what time. Where are we needed the most. I may prioritise it but life has always taken the better route, or has checkmated me most of the time. So what I wish for myself, for this year is to try start living really, in the world that goes on ‘today’. Or I at least should start practising it. I have always dreamt and I may still do but I haven’t really, seriously worked on today and now I want to. Opening of eyes and doing what comes the moment later. Planning will keep happening as it always has. But tomorrow’s sunrise onwards I will give my best today and i will desist any long term plan.
But, yes there are some select quantifiable goals that I had shared here but even they don’t matter nearly as much as you my co-travellers, friends and loved ones in my life. Love is what gives meaning to everything. And so my only resolve from here onwards would be to ask from the nature forces to give me that capacity to receive love and share it with utmost humility each passing moment. And that could be my prarabdha or the predestined nature.
Even though my Karma is Writing, And would like to see myself writing each passing day of my Life. As this year was one of those bricks that helped me build upon my wall of memory.
Such a word, just like 2022 is now, a year in memory. An important year; here we all lived it together while sharing what we did. I am grateful to each one of my co-travellers who was here with me, with each passing post; smiling, feeling, writing and making us two better together.
So, it felt important as It was quite hard to leave some major and even influential posts out of nearly 50 that I wrote this Year.
At number 9 is an Essay on the man whom I love to love to hate
Why Do I Like Gandhi ?
At number 8 is
10 hard truths that a student must know for life

At number 5 is a journey that arrived this year unexpectedly from my village in Uttar Pradesh, India :

At number 4 is
The Story of India in 75 Years
At number 3 is an instance that shook me right after we opened our school after Pandemic :

At number 2 is a post that will take us closer to the nature and our understanding of it once we read this :
Nature and What We Humans can Learn From Inner Life of Trees
At number 1 is an introductory post of Life in an Indian Village :
Silent Poems From My Ancestral Village. A Photographic Tribute
And the TOP post that took me to the meaning of Sacredness and kept my whole centred around that state of Meditation :
The pond of Saraswati and Meeting With the Brahma Kamal
The Final Say
So yes, these were some jewels that I could give back to the world this year.
I hope you spend the rest of tonight with the ones you want to see first thing with the rising Sun. But even if you find the Sun to be your only company, there is nothing better!
I still feel that feeling is a gift, that empathy is a boon and humility is the door to your destiny.
With hope that I will be able to create great new works, projects and courses that can bring more value, meaning, many followers and revenue along the way; so I can keep giving as much I want.
A Very Happy New Year My co-Travellers
