A year back, on the same date 13/12/17, I had written and published this on Instagram.
I thought to share it again with you. Because, I love these lines. And thought you would also love these words.
I was on a solo trip at Goa. It was my first solo trip. I spent a week there, all alone. Knowing and exploring the inner self and the outer world.
I spent days by staring at the waves 🌊 of the Colva Beach, Goa, and sometimes dipping in the pool of water and the ocean of pain, as if I wanted to cleanse my inner self or just want to keep the inner demons away, loving the sun, and waiting for the moon and for the moment where its first light would kiss me at night, while the waves did the talking all the time.
Listening to them is all what I did, and I did learn the art of listening.
The waves said many things in silence, and undoubtedly, something profound. Something about myself that I didn’t know. Something that I still don’t know—but I strongly felt it.
I also discovered a truth for myself — any kind of pain is like water — it can either cleanse you within if you learn to swim in that ocean of pain,
you can let it drown you.
And in the middle of all this, out of nowhere, when I was taking a sunbath, I wrote these few lines.
she never looked stunning.
she was like water,
water wasn't supposed to look stunning;
it was supposed to quench the thirst.
In silence, away from the world,
she quenched my soul's thirst —
slowly, steadily, selflessly.
she's my holy water - Sumit Asrani
