Communication

It’s been so long since you actually spoke to me properly my friend. I sometimes wonder if you actually consider me too as a friend. Can any friendship exist without speaking, interacting, talking? Why does it have to be anger all the time? I sometimes wonder if you actually have any Love and Affection for me.

I have been reflecting through, it’s always been me who tries to talk to you, wants to be with you, keen on showing my Love and Affection for you. But, it’s never been the other way. There has never been a time when you have come back to me trying to console me, cajole me (sigh).

It really hurts a lot when you just stop speaking or communicating. Isn’t there anything to talk or communicate to me? as a friend?

Trust is the most important part of a relationship, closely followed by communication. I think that if you have those two things, everything else falls into place – your affection, your emotional connection.

Maybe this saying explains all. O! Krishna, O! Madhava, why does this have to be like this? Everytime, it’s me who has to compromise, receive all anger and irritation and wait for my friend to be back… Is this what is known as separation? No communication. Just look at each other as ghosts.

When Krishna left the Rasa dance and disappeared, the gopis felt intense separation from their lover Krishna. To remember Him they imitated His pastimes and repeated His words to them. Krishna is the most handsome male, and with His sweet words, He won their hearts. Although some of the gopis were married, they could not forget Krishna for a moment of their lives. All living beings are female to Lord Krishna and meant to be enjoyed by Him. Lord Krishna’s disappearance from the gopis is mentioned in the Srimad-Bhagavatam, 10th canto, 30th chapter.

Such descriptions of Kṛṣṇa’s transcendental pastimes and activities were remembered by the gopīs during His absence from Vṛndāvana. They give us some idea of Kṛṣṇa’s attraction. Everyone and everything is attracted to Kṛṣṇa–that is the perfect description of Kṛṣṇa’s attraction. The example of the gopīs is very instructive to persons who are trying to be absorbed in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. One can very easily associate with Kṛṣṇa simply by remembering His transcendental pastimes. Everyone has a tendency to love someone. That Kṛṣṇa should be the object of love is the central point of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. By constantly chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra and remembering the transcendental pastimes of Kṛṣṇa, one can be fully in Kṛṣṇa consciousness and thus make his life sublime and fruitful.

It is so true, and you my dear friend was the one who awakened this Consciousness and brought Krishna Consciousness in my life. Is my Love for you the devotee and Krishna so weak that you always are in anger with me? Always do not wish to accept my Love nor show any from your side?

“They do not Love, that do not show Love” – William Shakespeare

I hope it is not. O!Krishna, I hope you will sincerely give me my share of Love and Affection from my dearest friend.  I am waiting for communications.

Understanding…(Mis)understanding?

Life sometimes throws in such challenges when you least expect. When I met my dear friend years ago, there was so much of love, affection, trust, care, concern for each other. But, Poof!! everything just vanished, some owing to others poisoning the thoughts and some by wrongly understanding situations.

Misunderstandings can mar any relationship easily. To bring back the earlier charm, and life into the same, can really take a very long time, depending on the inclination of both the people involved. But why do we give our understanding a mis—why don’t we understand that the person who was so closest to the heart could not have meant or thought bad for us.

maya drastum iti prabho
yogesvara tato me tvam
darsayatmanam avyayam

If You think that I am able to behold Your cosmic form, O my Lord, O master of all mystic power, then kindly show me that universal self.

The Lord cannot be understood or perceived by our mere senses. Arjuna could understand that for an ordinary person understanding the Supreme is next to impossible. One can understand the Lord only if and when He reveals himself to us.

I hope and pray to Lord sincerely that the truth be revealed soon and my dearest friend comes out of the (mis)understanding and our lovely friendship, a cherishable relationship is always strong in the bond of Krsna consciousness. Only miracles by the Lord can make this happen. Counting on miracles..
