Broken things – New things

This morning when I was working in the kitchen, I accidently struck my hand on a coffee mug and it fell to the ground and broke…. and then I realized… it’s so hard to fix broken things. Sometimes, no matter how much you try, even after mending it, you still see cracks.

Does that mean things should never be broken? Does that mean old things should live on forever….?

If they don’t break, how will new things be formed?

Old things have always been broken….. old ways of living, old civilizations…. old relationships… and then new things form…. new civilizations and new people…

When old habits break…. new habits are formed….

Some people say that it’s very hard to break old habits…. but I feel where there is a will, there is a way. If you set your mind to something…. and continuously try to improve upon it… you will succeed at breaking old habits and forming new ones…

When old things break or die…. we call it “death”… and then when new things are born…we call it “birth”… but isn’t everything running in a cycle….

Old things die… new things form…. old relationships die… new relationships are formed….

The death of one thing leads to the birth of another thing….

When my coffee mug broke this morning, it split up into 2 pieces…. the handle of the mug fell in one corner and the mug fell in another corner….

Just like one cell splits into multiple cells in our body… the death of one cell leads to the birth of multiple cells…

Death of an old object… leads to the birth of another object…

As soon as something is born, it is bound to die… Someday… that is INEVITABLE…

However…. no matter how much things break and reform…. there are just a few things…. very few things… that are in your hands and “Should not” be broken…

Certain special relationships… certain memorable things belonging to your children….

Certain friendships….Respect for parents and elders….

They should not be broken!

Just like there is a “Chakra” of breaking and reforming …. Similarly…. there might be a chakra of birth, death and rebirth…. Who knows? Who can tell? No one… Absolutely no one.

We can only say…. BE CAREFUL…. Avoid breaking things… Focus on “Mending, fixing, forgiving and creating….”

In the end, it’s not the people who “break” that are valued…. but it’s actually the people who “Mend” things…

If your ego ever comes in between a friendship or a relationship…. keep it aside and just try to heal things…

Let things go…. let things flow…

Don’t break…. and if it does… try to remake…. until possible.
