The artwork of dying have to be an extension of artwork of residing. I’ve been privileged to have lived a lifetime of consolation, however it’s the unwalled joys which have been probably the most rewarding. Every side of my life has shone with contentment, and certainly, a tranquillity introduced on by a way of accomplishment. I’ve by no means needed to yearn for something. The solely lack has been that of unhappiness. If that lack, or luck, or one thing extra profound? It doesn’t matter.
Of course, like all mortal beings, there have been a number of events and causes for feeling dissatisfied. But, on every such event, I requested myself, “is there any need to punish oneself with unhappiness?” The reply has all the time swiftly banished such detrimental ideas. This is why I’m sure that, as with the sojourn, the departure from life too might be amidst the surround-sound of delight, and extra so, pleasure.
All these years, I’ve all the time been stressed for brand spanking new experiences. Now, to inform you the reality, this life has change into jaded. One has had the privilege to have been there, accomplished that, purchased the T-shirt. Now, as for an journey traveller, the final frontier beckons, demanding to be skilled. Of this, I’m sure: the never-before vacation spot, the good unknown won’t disappoint. Everyone has talked of its thriller: us paar na jaane kya hoga, us paar jaroor kucch naya hoga. I can’t wait to discover it.
Having mentioned all this, I might need to go aaram se. Tell demise, very sweetly after all, to attend a bit whereas I modify my pillow simply so and snuggle into my quilt for the precise diploma of heat. I’m not apprehensive about settling issues of this world. Material bonds are already being untied as I gravitate in the direction of my final halt earlier than the ultimate vacation spot. NO, not Banaras, this might be some tranquil ashram away from worldly cares and cries.
My associates are being ready for my departure. Those near me, and actually know me, don’t want these consolatory noises. They know that I’ll embrace demise with the identical uninhibited celebration with which I’ve hugged life. In this conscious membership are my gurus who’ve nurtured and pampered me. Sometimes, I’ve a quiet snicker when considering of those that will mourn for me. Poor issues. They are those in want of a comforting pat as a result of they don’t know what lots of enjoyable I intend having on the market.
If there’s a final want, It is that this. No one ought to be knowledgeable of my departure. No one must ask “where is Indu?” Because, wherever there may be laughter, they are going to discover her there. The physique’s soulless shell will be cremated in whichever approach the ashramites really feel finest – my guru will certainly wing to my aspect from wherever he’s. Then, I’ll fly, flirting with the hearth, land, water, air and area in a long-awaited meeting-mating milan.
Always me in you.
