A Moment of Truth

For last few months this guy has been a good company for me. Someone who loved to talk his heart out in the most natural manner.

What I understood in the beautiful world he and his companion wanted to have a best and be happy. But after so many tries the nest they were making didn’t stay for long in one place. It just fell apart. This raven used to pick fight with the female and his friends on this matter. Even for eating too raven had his rules and conditions which slowly were accepted by other ravens and crows too. Then beautifully cartels formed and groups happened while this raven used to sit and continuously Chat with me in deep gruntling tones. Other ravens and crows used to surround him sometimes and lot of communication between them happened. Slowly the cartels moved away from the raven including the one raven he was courting for few weeks. During the whole period everyday the raven used to sit in same place kept talking to me with different tones. The more I listened I could relate to the Kaka-Svara Vijnana. The sadness and loneliness of Raven could be sensed through the sounds.

Slowly the groups of other ravens and crows started having there bitter fights and arguments over food, control and leadership. Few among the ravens and crows came back to the raven my friend. Whenever such get togethers were happening I found raven becoming more quiet and only few sounds were coming from Him. Ten days back I saw three groups from the original one group. All the three groups had similar traits it was scattered for none were ready to accept leadership and raven here became more quiet. Coming here sitting eating very less and then vanishing after saying few words.

Five days back I found that lots of ravens and crows were sitting at the spot calling out to the raven who was sitting at another end on top of tank we have.

The group of Raven and crows kept calling out but the Raven didn’t come down.

For last two days it happened and today the Raven came down when everyone left to other side of block. Sat on the same place and kept talking to me, then other crows and raven came at the same place surrounding him but there was no sound except His. After chatting he left the place and sat on the tank while others sat there in utter silence. After sometime more crows and raven came few flew away rest were there, just now all others too left but the leaving itself was beautiful as if it was a prayer.

It was something so deep that showed the way to a issue which was perpetually there. I had dropped something a decade back, today I adorn it, wear it and shall continue with it.

Walking the path of self is a condition but being on the path of selflessness brings one about to the pathless way. Come on the way of knowing the way and in the process bring about a change within to get liberated.
