Ligo Haibun Challenge ~ Desire!

Prompt ~ Not only the thirsty seek the water, the water as well seeks the thirsty.  – Rumi

Fulfillment of our desires and our Karma govern life. To wish for something (~desire) is the strongest force in the cosmos ( Sooner or later most of our desires are realized. We succeed when we work for our desires.

However, the responsibility of the means of attaining them, i.e. our deeds, is entirely ours. We have to accept the reward/ payment for our deeds (good or evil) in accordance with the Law of Karma.

Cosmic justice demands that there should be strict and equitable retribution in nature  since there is an arrangement in it to keep balance of actions and reaction and we can assure this balance by being non-judgmental of others desire and action as we rarely understand the issue in totality. We can only wonder at the diversity.

“A craftsman pulled a reed from the reed-bed,
cut holes in it, and called it a human being.

Since then, it’s been wailing a tender agony
of parting, never mentioning the skill
that gave it life as a flute”  – Rumi.

Far from good or bad

is a world that judges not

I will meet you there.
