Rainbow Connection

Cause is Effect concealed, Effect is Cause revealed.

The behavior we stick to or adopt is obviously so, keeping in our subconscious mind, the consequences of the same. Thus there exists a reason, known or unknown behind our behavioral pattern. When we realize its consequences completely, only then do we try to change it. This change could be to obtain other consequences that we desire. More like fulfilling our intentions and motives. It is entirely relative as to whether the realization dawns upon one at a particular time. An adult may not necessarily realize it yet a child might. So there isn’t a particular age or criterion as such, as to when a person realizes the ‘reason’. Reason on the other hand is subjective and my 6 could be your 9. Also, reasoning only brings out probabilities, not a confirmed answer. It might also lead you into believing that that which does not exist- nothing! Yet nothing holds just as much importance as everything making it only relative. When we form relationships in a worldly manner, we are not sure as to why, when, where or with whom we do so. It’s just a part of all that is happening. Yet, once we have established the fact that there exists now what we call a relationship, we are driven in everyway to ‘keep it’. But that is exactly NOT what we are to do. ‘Keeping’ relationships is not the idea. It’s growing together to become a part of the ‘other’. No more may it be called the other then. It is you, a part of your growth. It is a process that may be eternal, depending upon the nature of the growth you now share. There is no Right or Wrong, unless you want there to be. To want is another issue, but to go by your instincts is surely helpful. What feels, who feels, feels for all. And this feeling, to me, is far superior to the thoughts that engulf the mind.

Thinking is, in other words, reasoning. Not necessarily though, but it helps reasoning; while feeling is directly related to the action which is the only way to go. You feel? Don’t let it get to your mind, just feel: good, bad, right, wrong- is what the heart doesn’t know. It is what the mind understands. The heart only feels- happy, joyful, sad, ecstatic, free…

…don’t let your heart overpower your head. Don’t try to control anything. Let things be, go with the flow knowing you’re giving it all you have or are at least willing to. Consequences are not ours to worry about. Actions speak. Words are mere efforts to be precise. Yet it’s surprising how certain actions can completely overweigh words. There is no reason to compete. There is no reason.

Your reason and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul.
For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.
Among the hills, when you sit in the cool shade of the white poplars, sharing the peace and serenity of distant fields and meadows - then let your heart say in silence, "God rests in reason."
And when the storm comes, and the mighty wind shakes the forest, and thunder and lightning proclaim the majesty of the sky, - then let your heart say in awe, "God moves in passion."
And since you are a breath In God's sphere, and a leaf in God's forest, you too should rest in reason and move in passion.
-Kahlil Gibran
