122. Vacancy

People talk and their is a purpose.
People maintain silence and there is a purpose.
People tell a deliberate lie and there is a purpose.
People ignore and there is a purpose.
People turn their back and there is a purpose.
People get angry and there is a purpose.
People are honest and there is a purpose.
And so on....

People welcome you with lot of enthusiasm .. and many times this one act is without purpose.
It is as spontaneous as rest of the actions, but it is still different.
One can feel it.

I have been always amused at the way people respond.
It is not that a particular person responds or communicates in the same way for all the life.
People are different with different people.
Not only that, people are different at different times with the same people.
Situations change, relationships change, urge changes, comfort level changes.

I have been always amused at the way I get connected with people and the way I am disconnected. This happens without apparent reasons.
People come and go.
Today one is the highest priority and tomorrow the same could become a stranger and vice versa.

If one looks at all these connections with the perception of 'destination' one gets attached and the attachment brings both joy and pain. Both are extremes.
But the connection and disconnection can be very non-violent if one looks at it as a journey and not destination.
Journey brings moments of joy and pain too - but one knows that it is going to end after a stipulated time.

Life always creates new connections - which almost always are enriching.
The moment the learning from a particular connection is over, the next connection comes from nowhere.

The key is to keep the 'vacancy' in the mind and life intact.
So far, I have been able to do it.
Let me see, whether I can keep the vacancy forever.
