The mysterious connection with the higher self
Sunita was busy preparing the 250th Poori in her kitchen. She was wearing a red Banarasi with Mata Ki Chunari and Sindoor. Few minutes later she joined us in the hall. The moment Bhajans started she closed her eyes and transcended to her world of worship. She was singing the songs along with us and but you would notice she was on a different level of detachment with world and strong connection to the higher self.
It was visible is her eyes and face. Be it Hare Rama Hare Krishna or Pahadi Wali Maa she was connected with someone up there. All the ladies even told me she is the one pushing every one to come together for all the festivals. She plans and organised numerous get-togethers for all the Indian families.
A multitasking Mom and Businesswoman
When you talk to her you know it immediately she is transparent. Whatever she has inside in her heart is on her tongue. She has two daughters , one is 7 years and younger one is just 9 months. One can easily assume and mistake her for a homemaker for her simplicity but she is a fierce tigress. On one hand she bakes the best cakes for her daughter’s and cooks amazing cuisines for her husband while on the other she is a business partner in a logistics business.
Yes ! You are free to imagine her heavily decked in traditional lehenga or saree but with a phone in one hand while she just handles another client very politely, smartly and tactfully. When you get to know her you see how practical and strong she is. But how does this religious side fit in is a mystery. When you have a logistics business like she has then finding peace is most difficult even for the most organised and sorted people. How is this Mom, Wife, one Woman managing EVERYTHING and STILL ABLE TO CONNECT with that higher self or God or just plain simple soul.
How she made the connection to higher self?
By now you would have known me. I wouldn’t let go any chance to know more. so yeah we talked once on our way while travelling together and on phone.
She explained a few years back she lost her father who was mainly instrumental is teaching all the Shloka and Sundarkand etc but after he passed away she lost her faith and trust in her God. Two years back she had a crazy realization that when she drifted away she let her faith too loose to get back in touch.
She became too busy working and put her energy and soul for excelling in work alone. She succeeded and earned a lot of money but she had become a foreigner to her own culture, her faith and her soul.
She chose to make a difference for herself and her family. She brought herself to present and decided no matter what happens in her life the faith that her father instilled in her should pass on to next generation and that is when she slowly started connecting back to the higher concious. It’s has been two years and she says she knows not much of faith and learns from every one about meditation, prayers, religion, faith and it just helps her to stay connected with the higher consciousness.
What I learnt from her story?
Let me ask a question before I start telling about what I learnt.
Who changes their course of life just for family?
EVERY PARENT DOES IT. I know many parents do it and never tell their story. I wish to share this story to Sunita ji’s daughters one day when they are big enough to understand how strong and inspiring their mother is. I lost my father and just like Sunita I have lost my connection with the higher authority but seeing her I want to be better version of myself.
