It was just a day before the announcement of lockdown that I returned home where my parents live. I work in another city so I brought two- three sets of clothes only with me to survive a weekend.
As I was staying alone for so long, it wasn’t easy for me to adjust in the starting. Plus I had no clothes except for those few sets. It got really irritating in the initial days but with the passage of time I realised that one can actually survive with the very basic stuff.
It was the moment of realisation. The realisation that one actually doesn’t need much to survive in life. Needs are very basic. We can survive with very little stuff.
We just make life more complex by overdoing everything whether it be eating or shopping or travelling or spending. Or one can say, it’s the programming we have received which keeps us in this forever loop of earning and spending. This is supercrazy. Maybe that’s what the matrix is all about.
Moreover, mentally and emotionally it is a nice experience for me as it has given me a good long break from my 9-5 job which sucks out all my energy. I hate my job so it is liberating to be at home.
And about staying indoors for this long I can say that it has helped me in becoming more focussed at meditation. I have become a regular meditator now. It feels like a rejuvenation therapy. It helps in maintaining my sanity during this pandemic situation.
And I am using this time to try and prepare different cuisines for my family which I never thought I would be able to prepare before.
I am cooking, sketching, painting, reading, baking and exploring everything I possibly can in this period of lockdown.
I am using this time as an opportunity to explore more of my creative side.
I have started my own blog as you know it.
Pouring my thoughts out here brings inner happiness to me.
Writing is an eternal bliss!
