What is an Angel? Most commonly, whenever we hear this phrase we imagine some supernatural being or spirit and see a picture in our mind often in a humanoid form with feathered wings on their backs and halos around their heads. This is what we are accustomed to believe since ages. We find such images over the internet, churches, temples, places of worship, meditation centers, etc. We also have some literature written about them in various religions and mythologies. Some say that they act as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence; some believe them to exist to perform specific tasks assigned; etc.
Different people; different beliefs & notions! Which one do you believe? I believe each and every one of us is also an angel in one or the other way! Don’t you think so? Aren’t you on this planet to perform some specific tasks based on your karma? Don’t you act as guardians to your kids, siblings or parents? Isn’t your soul an intermediary holding your body in earth but connected to heaven? Now, off course the feathers are missing! But I guess its missing more because we have stopped flying! We have constricted our own flight due to fear, anxiety, greed, jealousy, etc. The Halo is not there as well; but that is only because we are not connected to ourselves and therefore the divine!
The idea is not to disbelieve in different forms of angels or to disrespect this belief; I too believe in them! But my point is that why can’t we treat our own selves and our loved ones the same way and spread love? Why should we leave such small things to angels? Spreading love? Diminishing hatred, jealousy, anxiety, greed? Isn’t that something we all can do? At least start a chain? And then let the angels take over in true form and make it sustain and make this world a better place to live!
This New Year lets pledge to spread love…and let the peace flow!
