Loving Someone, is not a Choice! Not Loving Someone is!! β™₯ Some beautiful answers and way of thinking of Turkish poet Jalaluddin Rumi… What Is Poison ? ? ? He Replied With A Beautiful Answer – AnyThing Which Is More Than Our Necessity Is Poison. It May Be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate Or AnyThing. What Is Fear ? ? ? Non Acceptance Of Uncertainty. If We Accept That Uncertainty, It Becomes Adventure. What Is Envy ? Non Acceptance Of Good In Others, If We Accept That Good, It Becomes Inspiration. What Is Anger ? ? ? Non Acceptance Of Things Which Are Beyond Our Control. If We Accept, It Becomes Tolerance. What Is Hatred ? ? ? Non Acceptance Of Person As He Is. If We Accept Person Unconditionally, It Becomes Love. 😊 😊 Temple Tales temple tale #284 a light rain had started when i reached the temple. it was confused. something between a drizzle and a rain. but i wasn’t confused for a change. i left my umbrella in the car. a little rain never hurt anyone… rainy plastic blue chappals had already arrived. she’s involved with the temple duties now, i believe. strangely, when i stepped inside she was sweeping! ah…! everyone multitasks nowadays!! i didn’t look around. didn’t make eye contact with anyone. gannu was done with his milk bath. and water bath. and looked ready for me :) i stood right in front of him. bang in the middle. gannu-greedy! that’s what i am…! gannu smiled. “hogging all the gannu-space are we?” me: “yeah. sometimes i need all of you. sometimes i don’t feel like sharing. i get a minute or two with you. surely that’s acceptable…?” gannu kept smiling. i refused to budge. me: “you know, loving someone is not a choice. not loving someone is.” gannu: “and so you’ve taught me a lesson today! thank you!!” the realisation was rattling. and scary. i did my chakkar. came back for my haldi kum kum. only to be greeted by the pandit who insisted on giving me a full spoon of milk charnamrit! how do i explain to him i’m not good at dealing with “too much”…? today, while leaving i looked back a few times; only to see gannu smiling, a bit more than usual… #templetales July 30, 2013. http://bit.ly/2hxJmFw

Temple Tales
temple tale #284

a light rain had started when i reached the temple. it was confused. something between a drizzle and a rain. but i wasn’t confused for a change. i left my umbrella in the car. a little rain never hurt anyone…

rainy plastic blue chappals had already arrived. she’s involved with the temple duties now, i believe. strangely, when i stepped inside she was sweeping! ah…! everyone multitasks nowadays!!

i didn’t look around. didn’t make eye contact with anyone. gannu was done with his milk bath. and water bath. and looked ready for me πŸ™‚

i stood right in front of him. bang in the middle. gannu-greedy! that’s what i am…!

gannu smiled. “hogging all the gannu-space are we?”
me: “yeah. sometimes i need all of you. sometimes i don’t feel like sharing. i get a minute or two with you. surely that’s acceptable…?”

gannu kept smiling. i refused to budge.

me: “you know, loving someone is not a choice. not loving someone is.”
gannu: “and so you’ve taught me a lesson today! thank you!!”

the realisation was rattling. and scary. i did my chakkar. came back for my haldi kum kum. only to be greeted by the pandit who insisted on giving me a full spoon of milk charnamrit!

how do i explain to him i’m not good at dealing with “too much”…?

today, while leaving i looked back a few times; only to see gannu smiling, a bit more than usual…
