Flow away from fear
Megha Bajaj asks us to consider that life gives us only three options. Knowing that, throw away all fear and keep marching.
If you really think about it, all that we are asking from life can be divided into these three words: Yes, maybe, or no. Will I have a baby? Yes, maybe, or no. Will I remain healthy? Yes, maybe, or no. Will I become a billionaire? Yes, maybe, or no. Will I attain a state of spiritual alignment? Yes, maybe, or no.
All of life encompasses these three answers.
Now that we know it can only be a yes, maybe, or no, why not drop something from our life called fear? One of the biggest things that stop us from living life to the fullest and achieving all that we wish to is fear.
We are so anxious, so worried, so concerned about changing the status quo because we just don’t know what will happen next. Somehow, it’s been a revolutionary discovery for me to recognise that for every move I make, life will only respond in three ways. Either she will say a huge, resounding ‘YES’and give me what I ask for or more than that. Or she will say ‘Maybe’—which could be a ‘Yes’or a ‘No.’ Or she will say ‘No’—so I won’t get what I want, or I may even get the opposite of what I want. My beloved guru so beautifully draws up a model saying there are only four possibilities to everything in life: Either we will get more than what we ask for, or we will get what we ask for; either we will get less than what we ask for, or we will get the opposite of what we ask for.
That’s just it.
Is it that bad? Not really, right? And yet, our mind conjures up so much as though there are possibilities beyond this.
One of the worst things that fear does is, it paralyses you into inaction. It stagnates you. It stalls you. Life is supposed to be a flow. If not this, that. If not that, there. Keep trying, keep growing, keep flowing; that is the only truth of life.
I remember one beautiful morning by the Ganges. As the sun rose upon her swelling bosom, I wondered to myself, “How is she so pure, so abundant, so ever-flowing?” And the answer came in the form of this poem that made me realise that when everything about life is just a yes, no, or maybe, why would I ever stop:
As I sit at her bank
I ask her
How, oh beautiful one,
do you stay so calm
And Ganga whispers
I do not think
of what I can receive
I do not become egoistical
about what I can give
I just do what I must
touches me not
touches me not
I just do what I must
And watching her
for just a moment
I close my eyes
and I flow
Oblivious of my past
Unperturbed by my future
so infinitely present in the moment
Oh yes, I flow.
Flow is the antidote to fear. Notwithstanding whatever it is that is stopping you from living the life you dream for yourself, in whatever area it may be—health, wealth, bliss, love, or spiritual alignment—the important thing is to keep flowing.
