"Kamala! We must make able ourselves to survive for peace, for God."
Mother Teresa repeated the statement in our first meeting, which makes me think of the real definition of life. Whatever it may be, I have learned a lot about life since then. I must thank her for this. One should firmly determine about one's life. Unless we are independent, we can't accept life in meaningful ways. It is true — no one shares our loneliness and hardships.
As my friend has said, "Kamala, if you can't change the problems, shut your eyes because the earthly tension and sorrow live outside. When you shut your eyes, the world disconnects automatically and you feel peace."
It is true that to live is not too easy. The hard way of living might divide our path. Ultimately, to have a successful life is to keep our aims in perspective. We can change our life in time. It is mind. It cannot remain unchanged. To quote an intellectual, "As a brave woman, you are not far from success." As joy and sorrow are momentary, so think of meaning in the long run.
It was December 1995. I was traveling with my uncle to Calcutta via train. I was on the train, thinking of nothing except that I would see Mother Teresa.
"You think about life, and life is for happiness," my uncle shared his ideas with me. “No need to feel that you are worried. Everything will be all right after you see Mother Teresa. Now you are traveling with me and must make a good journey for yourself here. We have only one life to live." Uncle gave me a long speech.
"Little girl Kamala, you have your life ahead of you,” Mother Teresa said while touching my right hand. “Be positive and strong, you are a poet, a good girl. There is so much an intelligent girl in you. After all, your education and your family has given you so much."
After meeting with Mother Teresa, I was happy and cheerful. It's true that unless you meet and recognize yourself, you can't be happy.
Mother Teresa remains a great part of my heart and mind. The relationship between her and me remains. She was inspirational to me.
I know we can dedicate our life only when we are experienced about it. I feel very emotional when each time I remember how Mother Teresa touched my hand.
