Excerpts from ‘Some Mistakes Have No Pardon’ by Girdhar Joshi
………‘You could find your destination, your ultimate goal. But everybody is not fortunate enough to find that. People like me would hardly get it, as they are always crying for love.’ Girish spoke his mind.
‘Yes…exactly, I cried for love too. But I got it…because He being the ocean of love. Only He can quench any thirst, which a mortal person on earth can’t ever do.’ Maya spoke about her soulmate, the Almighty.
‘Maya, you have found your soulmate. But I haven’t yet.’ Girish said.
‘Soulmate! What is soulmate, Girish? What is your definition of soulmate?’ Maya asked in just one breath.
‘Umm…well…One who understands you and one who accepts you as you are, one who loves you, and one who is a kind of support centre for you. And, one with whom you have a mental, physical, and spiritual relationship. That’s my definition of soulmate.’ Girish elaborated.
‘Hmm…’ Girish heard Maya just humming on phone.
‘So, my dear friend Maya, a soulmate is everything for me. Shall I find one?’ Girish probed Maya.
‘Yes… why not. Soulmates find each other. They naturally get attracted to each other. One has to be receptive. Let all the good waves enter into you.’ Maya replied.
‘Okay…fine. I will.’
‘And… to let the good waves enter, you need to clean you of all bad instincts inside you. If you shed all your inhibitions, your anger, your fears, and all your bitterness towards others, you will be receptive and you can recognize the signals when you come across your soulmate.’ Maya explained.
‘Definitely…I will, Maya.’
‘Don’t stray, Girish. There you have your soulmate, somewhere on this very earth. Girish, you will meet your soulmate, one day.’ Maya prophetically declared.
