A couple of months ago I joined a group where the participants are not only exceptional writers but take the time to visit and comment on each others writing. The group, Blogplicity, is a beautiful community and I am honoured to be a member. Recently, one of the members proposed a group of us take on a writing challenge called six-word memoirs. For the past month individuals have been writing such deep and insightful memoirs. Yesterday, it was Cairn's turn who courageously opened her heart and summed it up in six words.
One could ask why I'm choosing to post this here, as this blog is dedicated to delving into the practical applications of the Gita. There are two reasons. Firstly, the Gita is all about the essentials and gets right down to the heart of the matter. Nothing superfluous or dressy about it. It's concise. Similarly, this exercise forces me to think carefully about my life so far and boil it down to six words. Secondly, the Gita has shaped my life in such incredible and tangible ways. These six words below not only represent me, but more importantly, how the Gita has impacted me.
GRATEFUL FOR UNDESERVING BLESSINGS AND OPPORTUNITIES.
I now pass along the torch to Sulekha who will be writing her six-word memoir tomorrow on her blog!
