Your intuition calls you. It slowly rises from ashes, the one you never thought belonged to you, becomes a molecule and fuses with your spirit. In moments of oblivion, when the chatter outside makes you deaf; in moments of catastrophe, when the pieces of self look at themselves, all broken and shattered; in moments of elation, amidst smiles filled with glee, a voice speaks, only to find us no one around. Who do you think it was? Cum’on! I answered it right in the big-inning of the sentence.
As I read the text on language, it’s development and theories, words called me. My body felt hot with all the heat that the city was giving away. They contrarily felt cold. I invited them over. We had a chat, a very small one, just when Yalom wrote “Patients will resist your disclosure”. Our chat was mere a thought which was blank. No word spoken at my end yet understood by them. They knew it reached me. However I knew it too, yet I didn’t understand what chord they struck in me. Some are magic, they are all smoky, light, enchanting, vague and alluring. A swoosh! And they are gone, leaving behind a feeling unnamed.
Did I know Yalom would invite me for having breakfasts, lunches and suppers? No!
actually Yes! We
all carry answers to our questions we never think we will ever be able to
answer. We reach out to those we think shall know. Why? The heart needs
comforting, my friend. Far away in the corners of the heart lies a part which
hears nothing but words. Words written are what it listens to; those that play
music which enters the soul, so gradually, making them feel a part of our
veins. The next time somebody invites you to open the pages to their world,
give it a thought “Why now? Why them? Why You?” and may be as you shall ask the
why’s, more shall emerge as more shall die.
