A positive life
Jarna Kataria follows her heart to find the path that the Divine has laid out for her
Bad luck, I would say, every time I’d run into a depressing relationship, wrong people, or unfaithful friends, and move on. My teens were dramatic in themselves; I would care more about what others thought of me, work to please others, and keep giving more of myself to negative relationships, never realising that so much of my life was being wasted.
However, one thing was constant. I had been truly blessed that I was an introvert, constantly seeking how I can go right. What can I do right to attract goodness? The idea of spirituality, that there’s something beyond my constrained thinking, was always there.
I was hooked on books since Grade 11, as none could understand me and nothing that kids of my age usually did excited me. What would light up my eyes was nature, stars, sunrise, dreams, faith, mythology, and stuff that very few were inclined towards. I’d often feel lost and deeply saddened, asking myself why I was so different from others.
Love for books
Books gave me solace. The same sunrise that we all see was expressed so differently by varied authors. Their perspectives, myriad imaginations, and more importantly, their positive outlook made me smile in wonderment. Books were my very first teachers in diverse aspects. They brought forth beautiful insights that none talked about, which I decided to put to practice. The very first thing I picked up was ‘What you think, you become.’ Consciously, I’d reiterate positive affirmations in the morning: My life is beautiful. I attract good people. I am beautiful. I am successful.
Now that I look back, I am in awe of myself and the Universe. Imagine an 18- or 19-year-old girl, teaching herself about optimism and goodness! My tiny mind was just doing what those few pages of books taught, yet it did wonders to me and my life. Possibly, the Universe thought, This little girl has potential; however, she needs a mentor to guide her right. My love for writing and the seeker in me attracted a beautiful mentor who has been by my side through thick and thin, helping me blossom through words and actions. My mentor channelised my thoughts, correcting me like a mother, every time I deviated from goodness, and I started hitting all the right things, banging the right doors, and leaving the wrong ones with so much ease and truly started shredding my older immature self.
The blessing of my guru
The girl who would usually run into horrendous relationships came across a loving partner. The beginning was clumsy, yet it was my faith or this Universe that asked me to hold on to this guy—and I did. I am truly grateful for this one decision. It has been almost four years of our marriage. However, to date, I never miss a morning when I thank the one above for blessing me with him.
Indeed, I have done something right, for I took to a path, a guru, an inspiration that I’d cling to for life. My guru showed me all that I still need to work on, to live the life I have always desired, to keep transforming, to keep working on myself, to keep growing. Oh! There is so much to learn, there’s so much to do; life seems to be short and my dreams—sky-high. Yet, He gave me the confidence that I have the potential to reach there!
The seeker in me dances with joy each morning, for so many beautiful days are yet to unfold, so many beautiful transformations are yet to happen, and so many loving memories are yet to be made. And I, like a child, smile at the altar of the Lord, not asking for anything, simply being grateful for all that He is showering upon me and for never losing hope every time I, His child, faltered. How would I ever be able to thank him enough? And my guru whispered, “Find your purpose, my child. Live for the goodness of others. Work on what you’re good at, and seek how it can help the ones around you.”
I see myself walking on a path laid for me. The seeker is yet again walking, to seek something beautiful. I see myself, unstoppable, dreamy-eyed, relentlessly working with joy, peace, and laughter. And abundance flows! Reminiscing how it all started with ‘What you think, you become.’
