I never realized that I was carrying so much burden on my shoulders until it was revealed to me that I could find relief by finding a scape goat.
Being a student of history I realized that it was not difficult to go back in time to blame someone for my predicament to absolving me of all duties and responsibilities. I can easily call this state of enlightenment detachment and invoke the philosophy of Vedanta.
There are so many I can blame starting with my parents. But more than that I can blame the politicians and governments of the past. I can even go back in time and blame the Moghuls and the British.
I need to stop worrying about conversion and creolization of Hindus and the failing economy under PNM misrule. That should not be my problem but for the Opposition Leader and Roodal Moonilal.
The invasion of home and robberies should not be my concern. That is the responsibility of the police. After all they are trained to fight crime, and are paid handsomely.
I think my energies should be focused on buying a better car and better furniture. I need to invite friends to my home and let down my hair and stop being so restrained in my conduct and restricted in my diet.
I need not bother about life style diseases. That is for the Minister of Health to worry about and the doctors.
It now dawn on me that I should stop worrying about the direction the society is heading. Instead I should seek salvation in applying home made coconut oil to my head. That is the definite road to nirvana!
I am now confirmed that I have nothing to worry about. I am now liberated, feeling like a bird, left to flap my wings and move from place to place.
It is great to be liberated. I regret that this realization did not come to me earlier but better late than never!
So many of my youthful life has been wasted in trying to right perceived wrongs. Now I know that nothing is wrong with the society and that I have been deluded by Maya or illusion.
