“Some people are related not by blood but by pure love.Some relations are deeper and more divine than familial ties.”
I had two people in my mind as an inspiration while writing these words.
We all have our immediate family that comprises of parents,husbands,wives,children and siblings.Other than them there are nieces,nephews,cousins and so on.
We love all of them and may or may not share a close bond with them.
But somewhere,at some point in life,we come across one or more persons with whom we begin to share a bond and slowly but surely,that bond becomes deeper and deeper.
Suddenly a total stranger enters our world and our hearts.An undefined bond exists with that person.The bond between these two hearts could be romantic,friendly,brotherly or sisterly,father or motherly or something just beyond an explanation.
Do you not have if not many at least a single relationship in life which is much deeper and stronger than your relationship with your kith and kin??A better-half or lover,with whom you spend your entire life is one such person,gifted by God through destiny.
Such relationships need no reason to exist.They are destined to exist.They are what you call platonic or divine.Special and beautiful.They enrich your life and allow love to overflow within you.Nothing can ever lessen the depth of love in these relationships or the value they hold in an individual’s life.
For an orphan it could be the family or that person who gives him the care and love he always longed for. For a depressed person it could be someone who walks into his life and fills it with happiness and laughter. A person who meant absolutely nothing just a minute ago,now shares a special relationship with you.
A believer in the Law of Karma would say its a connection from lives that have passed by.That your souls are connected due to your life’s Karmas and purpose.Yes,there is a connect.It could be a past life connect.But mainly there is a connect of trust and love.
Lord Krishna in The Bhagavad Gita says,”Love everyone.The entire Universe is yours.Your very center is Love.” When He gifts you such a person is He not trying to tell you that every person is special in some way or the other?? Is He,through that person not trying to teach you the value of divine love??
His relationship with Arjuna and Shri Rama’s with his devotee Hanuman,are the best examples.
For me,I was blessed with two such people at a very tender age.The two people I spoke about in the beginning. One being our neighbor who is like a mother to me and the other one being my brother,not by blood but by heart.Due to whose love I understood what a perfect elder brother is like!
Such people leave a permanent mark on your heart and give you a bond to be cherished for lifetime,or even beyond that.
They teach you that Family isn’t always about blood.That it is about those who love you for what you are,who want you in their lives.Who love you no matter what.Whom you love for what they are,whose presence causes your heart to smile and whose absence only deepens the bond.
They are precious blessings meant to be valued forever. Isn’t it readers?? 🙂
