Have you ever seen a yarn of cotton being prepared? In simple terms, a cotton ball is spun around a spindle in the spinning wheel and as a result, the disintegrated cotton gives birth of the yarn of thread. Weaving these threads in a power loom or hand loom gives us clothes.
What do we do in life? We are born like a cotton ball – clean, pure and formless. Our parents, our society, our education shapes us, builds us. Then we begin to weave our lives with all the threads we got in the beginning. After being used extensively, our weaved lives worn out finally one day and we disintegrate again.
But what do we do in the whole life? Collecting bits and pieces of everything we encounter – money, wealth, relations, memories and so much more. We keep on winding our yarns of life for the whole life – without thinking, why we are doing it. We cling to our materialistic possessions, our worldly possessions – that’s why we remain unhappy. We try to find happiness in vein – because happiness comes in destruction and then building again. Have you ever seen a little child playing? How it plays with its new toys, throws them only to break those toys and laughs with its heart out? Why? Because this is a game to the child – it breaks everything just to start afresh.
Why can’t we break the barriers, throw the old, rusty belongings, and start a new journey – just for the sake of us?
