|Harut and Marut - The Fallen Angels
|Mathnavi Maulvi Ma'nvi
When you are totally in a relaxed state, then slowly bring in your mind what
do you want from life? What are your dreams and desires in life? For few
minutes very pleasant ideas shall sail in your mind: what kind of a job
status you wish for yourself or a life partner; what car do you want to ride
in and where do you want to spend your vacations. Slowly, soon after that
the hazards which may be blocking your goals shall start peeping in. A
domineering boss, a competitive colleague, lack of economic resources,
etc. and you may start wishing to eliminate all those blocking your way to
your dream life. The unpleasant incidences shall creep in, the people who
think ill of you and whom you cannot ignore or forgive, people who do not
value your dreams, even if it were your parent, spouse, any close member
of your family or a friend, they were the people who did not help you out;
they were not with you in moment of need: a teacher who does not grade
you well; a boss who is more favorable to your colleague; a father who
supports other sibling or a beloved who has set too high expectations.
Your breathing rate is quickened, your face has started flushing, your
heart is pounding, your stomach is churning and whole body is in tense
and turgid muscular state. You are awakened in an intense emotional
state, ready to do anything to remove the blocks to achieve your personal
goals. So far you may have considered yourself “friendly”, most congenial
and accommodative person, but now you can no more “forget” and
|Am I an angel or a devil?
|The demon of your “self” has been aroused or
angel has gone to take a nap?
