"ni" of my Sadhana!
Light diffuses into its myriad colors painting a spectrum....
each hue shining in its might
a rainbow.... a beholder's delight!!
the sight of a rare rainbow sprouts joy, wonder and excitement in almost all of us. Light casts itself into its various colors,with varying frequencies and wavelengths ...!!! each having its individual properties .. yet is only a part of the whole!
We too, in our day to day lives put on various roles...that of a mother , daughter , wife , employee , student and many more....and in the long run start identifying with our roles. We transform ourselves into these roles and just bury our true self, in this role playing.
At one point, I am the wife , never ever tired of nagging ...and then I am the mother, always expecting ... then I am a daughter always demanding .....In all this role playing, I have forgotten to shed the roles and just be me. In the previous posts relating to sadhana ... I had revealed a few facts about myself . Today, when I try to come up with yet another fact, I can just say that I am not just a daughter , wife , mother , dancer , student .....I am something more! I am not just the human, I am also the " being"....and it is that something which makes me whole! Like the VIBGYOR colors, which are beautiful expressions of the same white light ... the roles I play are only expressions of my Being! The Ni of my sadhana is that I am some thing more that I think I am ....the taste of which I have experienced .....only in glimpses ...or split seconds when I have shed my egos unknowingly, when I have forgotten to play my roles!
With this post I conclude my long tag! Thanks to my friend Bharathy, for tagging me ...and helping me launch a quest... I thoroughly enjoyed it! ( I am sure she will never ever dare to tag me in future :) )

Nandita - the path you tread the last few blogs from Sa to Ni is pretty daunting. I could never have thought that way or imagined those connotations...It is great to have an open mind like yours, I guess. Keep going...

"We transform ourselves into these roles and just bury our true self, in this role playing..." how true. :-) ... probably being selfish at times is not too bad.
and ofcouse I do see a lot more coming from you.
I have been following the trail, though not commenting as often. It has been amazing. The depth of your thoughts and perceptions... Keep it going... It's a pleasure reading...
We are so complicated, it is a wonder we can even put one foot in front of the other. That you can dance, too, Nanditha, just shows how you pull all the facets of your life together. Thanks for another lovely piece and look forward to your next one.
Thank you all for your warm comments!
hope the glimpses recur in quality and quantity.
nandukka .. the sadhana series was truly inspiring .... hope those "split seconds" get gradually prolonged ....
