There are people who never seem religious but are spiritually more awaken than most of us would ever be. They follow simple steps unknowingly and the almighty ensures that they travel safely. There was a friend of mine who never spoke in the religious discussions, preferred to keep silent rather than proving him, despite all I always felt his aura.
He was never the best but he always remained the chosen one. He was a heartthrob for all those with whom he spent time with. He never performed well in studies but was loved by his teachers. He cleared almost all the interviews he ever faced for a job. When he graduated he earned a job not because he was technically sound but because of his interpersonal skills.
I could always sense there was something always behind him through all his success. He used to name it ‘his undisciplined spiritualism’. Undisciplined, because he did when he wanted to do, he stopped when he wanted to; there was nothing that could prevent him from following this principle of his. He started the things in fashion and usually brought most of them to the execution level but for those he didn’t like he didn’t take a step further. He won’t mind calling a loser.
His principle was enjoying almost everything and thank God for the pleasure you had. The formula was he brought enthusiasm to all his deeds otherwise he won’t do it. If he prayed it was like he lost in the eternity but he didn’t do that more often.
The indiscipline made him successful but his success restricted to a certain level to which he could not go beyond. When I suggested him to bring discipline to his life he always ignored and continued to believe whatever I am eligible or liable to get, no one can stop me from that.
As per him, his utmost faith in the almighty made him what he was. He would visit churches, temples, mosques and sit there for as long as he could while there were times when he wouldn’t pray for a minute before the God as a part of discipline in his house. When asked about this he said, ‘’it is not like if I am not in a temple I become an atheist, he is always with me and I always feel that’’.
I am a strong supporter of discipline but this personality made me think the other way too.
