Do you sleep well? Not in terms of time, neither in terms of quality of your bed or the size of your room….rather the peace of your mind! Do you sleep the sleep that the richest of the world wish for? Do you sleep the sleep which is the synonym for peace and serenity?
Hmm, well, I don’t know about you, but I always vied to look out for people who possess this precious capability of resting like a child…a child who is carefree, free of; tension, anxiety, jealousy and envy.
They work and exert effort equivalent to what the world pours in, they also ponder over things the same way as others do but yet when they rest they are like children. Children called as angels by some and sin free by others. These people are like children for the moments they sleep, talk and even walk pass by….but they are fully fledged adults when they commute, take responsibility, perform a task or analyze a matter.
You must be wondering who are these people I’m constantly talking about? Do they even exist?
Well, yes I have seen them, witnessed their peace and experienced their serenity. When ‘normal people’ are fidgeting, they calm us down….when normal people over-react, they are the ones to tone it down…. When they are pessimistic, they show us the bright side. They exist side by side; near every anxious shoulder there exists one pacifier who diffuses tranquility which supersedes the darkness around our souls.
When I pondered with my anxiety that what is it that they have that ‘normal people’ don’t? Is it their point of view? Is it their innate quality of remaining calm? Or is it that they have something that we don’t? The answer is may be a mixture of all of these questions!
After deliberating on the few such people I have met in my life, I can conclude that they have a different point of view. They can see the white which we miss out while pointing out the black.
They have something innate that we don’t, yes, they have the capacity to absorb shocks. When we are over reacting, they are scrutinizing, i.e. what they do and what we don’t.
Lastly, the answer to the third question I posed to myself was also clear… yes they have something which is not in us….they have something above us, above the human kind, something metaphysical. Yes! They have trust, trust in the presence of our Lord. Faith in the Lord that He is there and He is the One Who will Make things alright. So when they sleep, they sleep with the faith that someone will wake them up, when they face a problem they know that Someone will help them overcome it….And they don’t only say it with words like ‘normal people’, they say what they really Believe! May God Bless Them!
