While sitting idly in the puja room of my house - into a thinking mode and not actually doing prayers :) my attention was drawn by a small insect coming towards me. With a soft bristled brush , I push that insect far from me in a different direction. That force of my hand shoved it off into a different direction , unknown to it, yet it started its journey back towards me.
There was some sense of purpose that it had to pursue that made it still carry on its mission towards where it was heading previously despite the fact that it was shoved off from that place. For the second time I did the same , this time in a different direction again than the last one , and yet that little creature with its persistence, perserverance and sense of purpose trotted its journey to its thought destination... this continued for other few couple of times with the same result. I was amused to see the perseverance of that insect.!
It made me think that whatever the force, unknown to that insect, that came to hamper its journey to its destination , it still made efforts to continue its mission undeterred. Point to take..!!
Though the last time I shoved it off, it tried different ways to reach the destination - trying to climb wall and then move horizontal to the destination, walking side by side to the base of the wall.. etc , but this time I could see it was really struggling to find its way back.. I didnt wait to see if it actually followed the lost path or not..I hope it did!!!
Such is our Life........!!!!
