In Search of Magic Moments
We are all indeed too caught up with the world , leading an event filled life, moment to moment, never finding enough time for reflection, which can perhaps enrich all the moments to be. William Wordsworth in his evocative sonnet laments wistfully that “The world is too much with us; late and soon, Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers.” Reflections can throw a ray of light amidst the fog of the busy present, and help look much beyond. As we light the lamp of aspiration, we can make our journey a life-long education, to illumine the road ahead.
We may ask ourselves if we have a new view, a new plan, a new way of doing things, differently from what you have always done. As they shape to a definitive state in our minds, do we feel optimistic about trying it out? Why do we feel so enthused? What have we changed your mind about? What will change everything? What will we try out tomorrow? We may reflect on our vocation, our career, our purpose and our life, as every question we ask can be a key to a hidden treasure of knowledge, waiting for us.
Engrossed, as we are, with the transactional moorings of our day to day travails, we perhaps have to relax and think. When we dig deep into the reservoirs of our mind, in a state of calm, we may discover our own leap of imagination that will shape new directions. “ For I dipt into the future, Far as human eye could see, Saw the vision of the world, And all the wonder that would be” wrote Tennyson. As fellow travelers into the future, let us seek to find moments of magic, in the depths of our own mind, each day.
