I have never seen it, though, may be from pictures I know that there is something out there, and there is. No doubt about that. But is there a life in that world ? I always look into the sky and suddenly I feel a connection, I feel nostalgic, as if I know someone is out there, but I am not able to remember.

It can be a devil, or it can be nothing, just the stars and the galaxies, but I am an incorrigible optimist, and some part of my mind wants someone to be there, I like that feeling and I donโ€™t want it go.

Earlier I told myself that this feeling or connection is just because of the curiosity of the unknown. But I am curious every time about things unknown to me, not all of them, just the ones which I am interested in. And in those things I never feel such strong connection, and I realize that there is something about it which is unusual and different, I wonder what.

I have always been a glib liar, when it comes to others, and I am actually quite comfortable with it, but I can never lie to myself. All I now want is to find out more about this connection which is so genuine and strong.

So I looked more into it, I immersed in it deep, just like a cube of sugar immerses in a cup of hot milk and disappears. I disappeared in the mysteriousness. And there was nothing around me, everything was dark, I was not able to see myself.

I walked for I donโ€™t know how long, looking for something, I was scared to hell. I asked myself, was that connection misguiding me, was it just an illusion ? I was confounded.

Suddenly when I was about to sunk in the pool of fear and illusion, a bright ray appeared from somewhere, it was so bright that it illuminated everything around. The connection that I was looking for was real, it took away all fear and gave me hope.

When sometimes I am lost and my goal seems to me as almost impossible, I dive in to myself. At first it is really scary and dark, but as I reach the core of my mind and my inner self I discover a bright light. That light gives me hope, and when I see that light, suddenly all fear goes away.

There is indeed everything out there and inside you, what you need is just believe in that connection and intuition and go intrepidly into the dark. Because to see light one has to pass through the dark.

  1. This reminded me of the phrase that the sun pricks yes stronger after a long night.

      1. When we identify our source of strength, we can overcome any fear. I hope this will be true for you too Shreyans! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Beautiful piece. Searching for the unknown and finding hope and truth in the darkest of times. I was struck by your last line, needing darkness to understand to see the light. For what is darkness but the absence of light. For myself this made me think of a favourite Bible verse. ” The Light Shines in the darkness but the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5 . Very well written. Thank you for sharing this link with me ๐Ÿ™‚


      1. I think you underestimate your abilities. You are en excellent writer. As good as me or anyone. You have your own unique take on how you write about things and I really enjoy it. I would encourage you to submit some of your work to literary magazines. Honestly, there are so many, you can just google them. Your writing is excellent.
