The theme of this edition of Kaleidoscope is “My Story”. It is dedicated to the heroes of our life i.e. Us. There is no better witness to the ups and downs of our lives than we ourselves. We have known ourselves most intimately, the struggles, the fall and the rise again. Whether someone appreciates our journey or not, what is most important is that we acknowledge our own journeys, take pride in it, learn from it and become our own heroes.
This month’s theme “My Story” is a reminder that we are our own saviours, guides and gurus. We are the ones who bring salvation to ourselves. External saviours and guides are simply a reflection of that which we seek within. The purpose of external gurus is to lead us to the guru within. This is life all about – to find the guru within us.
Often, we become too harsh with ourselves, criticizing our every word, thought and action. When you receive that much criticism from outside, how crippling it can feel. Imagine doing that to yourself all day! “My Story” is a reminder that you have been doing the best you could under the given circumstances. “My Story” is an opportunity to look back and see the journey you have done, sometimes in spite of the criticism you received from others and yourself, and recognize the hero within you.
As you begin to recognize the hero within, you become an inspiration for others to find their own heroes, to take that plunge and journey within to find their own gurus.
If you are looking for inspiration and your saviour, be inspired by others’ stories and journeys. You may take their path to begin with until you find your own path.
Always remember, the external world and its stories are a guide map to go within. The ultimate journey is within you. Don’t stay stuck on the map that you miss out on the real journey.
