Mother’s Love #2 – Black or White?

large

Me : “Aunty, Do u like white or black?”
Sara Aunty : “I like both..”
Me (confused): ” Okay, but which one you like more?”
Sara Aunty : ” Sometimes black.. Sometimes white..I like both ”
Me (more confused): ” But why so?!”
Sara Aunty (she smiled) : “When they are together they make more beautiful pictures than being alone. Knowing this truth, how can I show partiality?! I like both ”
We both looked at each other and bursted out in laughter..!!
I understood that she conveyed a very important lesson to be remembered throughout our life; “Opposite values are complimentary..” Just like how day and night, hot and cold, hills and valleys, happiness and sorrows; everything in this universe exist “together” with its complimentary. And One loses its value without the existence of other. Yes, that keeps the balance .. !

Mother’s Love #1

Meet my young friend Dr. Sara Varghese (dont get confused with her hair; she coloured it white 😀 ). We share a special bond of unconditional love; with a pinch of salt and pepper!
In this segment “Mother’s Love”, I would like to share few thoughts from our regular conversation.. Pearls of Wisdom from an “extremely ordinary” woman who likes to swim (its not just like, she is crazy about swimming 😀 ) and dive deep into the sea to touch those oasters!

Here it goes.. On your mark.. Get-Set.. Goooo..

Sara Aunty : Saneeja, do you know what pulls us away from a Holistic way of Living..?
Me : No..
Sara Aunty : Its Fears!
Me : Fear of what? Failures?
(She smiled and continued with explanation)
Fears means F- Food, E- Exercise, A- Addictions, R- Relationships, S- Stress

When your food is improper, you don’t do any exercises, you have any addictions, bad relationships and if you are stressed then without any doubt, your life will be a mess!

We both smiled looking at each other.. and I whispered to myself.. “True..!”
