In this helplessness, lies great artistry

Keep watching, how helpless you are. Keep watching that in spite of your resistance, the storm is taking you away. Keep watching and if you desire anything more than that, then you are desiring hell. Don’t desire anything more that that.

The bowler may bowl an accurate bouncer, at a lively speed, it may just not be possible to play it, put bat to the ball. You will have no option but just to bend and watch, watch it go past you, over your head.

In this helplessness, lies great artistry.

It is not possible for everyone to bend down; people take bouncers on their cheeks. Watching the ball is not a symbol of meekness, it is great artistry. It shows keen observation, it shows wisdom, it shows strength. Bending down is not just capitulation, it is wisdom. So, let the storm take you away, you bend down, let it take you away.

But never for a moment must you lose attention; just keep knowing.
