The one who has realised God feels: I’m the machine, and Thou, O Lord the Operator. I am the house and Thou art the dweller. I am the chariot and Thou art the Driver. I move as Thou movest me; I speak as Thou makest me speak. – Sri Ramakrishna.
Hello friends, a very warm greetings from me to you all. I must express my regret for becoming incommunicado for some time. As you may know that I have become a fresher teacher from the beginning of this month, April. In this very short time, I have amassed a whale of an experience to narrate to you. I shall tell you as soon as I get a window of time from juggling school and home duties.
The above quote by the revered saint, made me squeeze out some time to present it to you. The eternal truth of the statement impreesed me a lot. We always tend to take credit for the job well done by us but we seem to forget that there is a Supreme Power who is handling all of us like a puppet.
He has fixed all of our respective roles and oversees whether we abide by his dictats or tend to digress from the set path. It’s indeed our Karma or the work done by us which sets the tone of our destiny. The point is , we have to persevere on the path He has set for us, no matter what.
In my case, it wasn’t an easy decision to take up the job of teaching after my children are all grown up. I have to start from scratch and have to toil as hard as young teachers would do. Believe me I was skeptical myself, about my own ability to discharge my responsibilities. But apart from initial hiccups and trials I’m coming to enjoy what He has destined for me.
When I got selected, I knew He is showing me the path to proceed and took it up. Interacting with so many children and their encouraging response is such a heart warming experience, I can’t describe it in words. It has infused a fresh vigour in me to work hard and build up their charecters as well as transfer of learning to them.
The children are so amenable to learn new things is really satisfying for me. I’m also learning a lot from them, like operating an electronic board. Hope, He will continue to drive me and all of us towards right path towards success and fulfillment.
Wish you all health, happiness and prosperiti. Adieu for now.
