The Sparkle and the Thunder
What is a spark? That last dying and shimmering light which radiates yellowish light and burns out to twinkle. You see the phenomenon of life lies in it.
In order to make a path clear and to have a vivid image of it, you have to close some roads and cut off some of the bridges. Life is a series of pulls and back and forth, like the pull of the rubber band and most of us live in the middle of it.
Thunder is somewhat never synonymous to a spark, it has a roaring sound that cracks into echoes, while it passes through the membranes of our ears, before we absorb the idea of sheer lightning and the sound of the storm. This is the tension of opposites.
Now coming back to life, you want to do one thing but you are bound to do something else. Destiny plays a vital role. You don’t come across people or situations that aren’t meant for you. Sometimes we discard things as if it is a normal routine thing. This sequence of events tire us, we feel like giving up but the All-Mighty gives us the strength to fight another battle happily. Luckily, I found many people who lent their hands, all of us do, you see it is always give and take!
The quality of mercy is not strained;Shakespeare – The Merchant of Venice (Act IV, Scene I)
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest;
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes:
‘T is mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown:
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
But mercy is above this sceptred sway;
It is enthronèd in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself;
If you can’t give anything, it comes around the same way. I wish all of us can remove anxieties, depression, and this constant tussle with kindness, empathy, and sheer love. We may shower care and regard people who deserve our time and efforts.
