I have always been an over-thinker. Parents and close friends keep suggesting me to think less about life and just focus on one thing at a time; as overthinking create chaos and live with the flow is always helpful. I continuously try to believe it and keep telling that to everyone, but somehow couldn’t convince myself completely.
But, when I was here at this place – in front of the holy water of Ganga – I just couldn’t understand why I am feeling free! Why I am feeling calm! Why I am relaxed! Why I am not thinking anything! Why I am so grounded today! I was just enjoying… I didn’t care about how I look, what I am wearing, my social media posts, or what other people think about me!
Divine Ganga and ME!
Suddenly I realized that everything I’ve mentioned doesn’t matter actually! Suddenly I found this cliché true; that we are not here to impress people. We are here to live and celebrate each and every moment. Just sitting in front of Ganga and looking at its flowing water, I experienced relaxation. This place is peaceful, calm, and positive. There, I got a hint of thoughtlessness, for which I really crave for!
Here at Ganga Aarti, I was mesmerized. I asked myself why I am liking all of this so much! I do not feel the same feeling at some other places. Why here? What’s new in this atmosphere? The peacefulness? The divine instruments? The people? Or the fire inside me? Then I started introspection. I was aware of my surrounding, but I didn’t have any thoughts in mind. (Which is rare!) I wanted to write something about River Ganga and her divine vibes, but I couldn’t!
So, after all these temporary but important experiences; I realized that what people say is correct – There are some magic and positive vibes in this place. I really got some glimpse of thoughtlessness here. I had thoughts, still became thoughtless. Isn’t it strange? Actually, no it’s not! It’s the power of nature – clean, calm, and correct!
River Ganga has something magical in her flowing water, which makes you realize that you are “just a small dot” of this eternal universe. Then why this much tension? Why worrying? GupShup believes; “When life gives you a lemon, make lemonade!” Be true to yourself and keep going – just like a river.
