Search for the Ultimate Destination

Water Colors by Toyna in 2020

I run.

I pant.

I cease.

I wonder what was my destination.

I meet Death and realize it wasn’t what I had thought it’d be.

I run but do not find either Heaven or Hell.

I run. I pant. I cease to be dead.

I meet a new life.

More determined this time…

I run fast. I pant less. I live a little longer and then I cease.

Wondering still, what was my destination meant to be?

I meet Death but not the promised lands of angels.

But Hey! I can run faster now. The land seems just in reach.

But just before I get there, I cease to be dead, again.

Hundreds of times over, I have lived this cycle.

Life. Death. Life. Death. Life.

Yet, I do not know where I am and who I want to be.

Somewhere inside, something breaks or maybe something connects.

I start to wonder, maybe this is not how life and death should be.

Maybe, I am not looking at it the right way.

Maybe, I am not looking at the right place.

I have searched everywhere outside.

Maybe, just maybe, it is time to look inside.

Maybe, if I just sit down and close my eyes,

Listen to my heart beat and feel my breath rise

I will hear my faint inner voice.

I stop running and panting.

I stand still, still like a clock pausing on time.

The world stops with me.

I hear the birds chirping, the wind blowing, the trees swaying.

I feel the twinkling stars, the blazing sun and the countless smiles.

I close my eyes and focus on the air moving inside.

Just like that, the world outside merges with me.

The birds, wind, trees, stars, sun and smiles

Both the Heaven and the Hell, alive

All of it and so much more, are now within me,

Breathing, kicking, full of life.

After hundreds of cycles of living and dying

I have finally arrived.

I am an ex-Management Consultant and a successful entrepreneur having close to twenty years of corporate experience. I am currently focusing full time on being a homeschooling parent while researching on the future of education and alternate methods of education. I am also a Vedic Math Trainer, an Operations Manager at a business run by her children and a philanthropist working with tens of other under privileged children. I bring all my past and current experiences together in the form of writing blogs. Using these blogs I wish to create awareness in parents, caregivers and educators about parenting, education and holistic living.
