The “I” in us is just too big for us to be able to give anything else as much importance. ‘I’ in Hindu mythology stands for ‘ego’. I am the central figure in my life. Everything is about me, revolves around me. Each of us, we see only our lives. In this time and space, I cannot see what is happening with my husband or child (if they are away) or my parents living in another city. We each experience the world through our own small window.
In Hindu mythology it is said, God can see all living beings together at any given point of time and wherever they are (akin to us viewing a board game laid out in front). God knows how we are inter-connected, because he sees us all together. I don’t know if that’s true. But this thought stayed with me. If you ever want to remind yourself that while you matter, you are only a small tiny part of this endless universe, stand on the shore of the vast ocean and look out.
