Imagine yourself sitting in the world’s most comfortable chair, so cushiony and soft that it relaxes you and puts you to sleep. Let the seat also be of profound beauty, beauty with simplicity.
In this hypothetical situation, think that you are lying on a fresh dew-covered grassy ground. There are multiple evergreen trees in the background, swaying in the cool breeze which just kissed your cheek. You put your feet up on the congenial stool kept just at the right distance, and you feel your every muscle relax.
There is a large glass kept right beside you filled with your best-loved beverage, and a long colorful straw extends from it to right near your mouth, so, you don’t even have to move an inch to enjoy its flavor. Your favorite cuisine is also waiting for you opposite to the beverage. Remember it’s the best cooked and the most delicious!
You can smell your favorite scent and can feel it’s mild fragrance going down your throat, refreshing all the cells of your body as it goes inside of you.
There is nobody around! No noise, no melody, just you!
There is no home work to complete, no competition to prepare for and no expectations to live up to.
No one will compare you to any others, no one will break your trust, none will degrade you. Your future doesn’t depend on your studies.
Your parents don’t depend on the job you’ll attain in the future. Your life doesn’t depend on money.
There is no worry! No social drama, no ‘impressive’ selfies and no reason to be the owner of fake beauty.
No, none at all!
You are alone, but not lonely!
There is a soft light which shines on you while you are seated, making its way amidst the evergreen trees. It is the Supreme Light, indicating the presence of the Almighty. Nobody can hurt you now!
The glimmer in The Supreme Glow enters your mind and destroys all your tensions and worries, leaving behind just coolness that fills your mind to such an extent that you smile. This Light will enlighten you!
You are simply happy, an achiever of the greatest bliss and you need nothing else.
This is the exact form of life that I wish to live. This is the much-needed break that I want! But, I know it will never come true. Even if I get in the above-mentioned scenario, no one would be able to take my turmoil away. They will chase me down eventually. So, I just make it up in my mind and fake myself. Oh, how I wish I could take a break!
