Paap Or Punya
I remember one small incident of my childhood when I was just 7 or 8 years old. It has left unanswered question for me to explore and I haven’t found the right answer yet. There is one insect who usually feeds on the houseflies. One day I saw it grabbing one housefly in his mouth but I caught it and its mouth lossened the grip and eventually the housefly was saved and it flew away. At that very moment, a question struck my mind, ” Was it Paap or Punya”? To save a housefly from the imminent death appeared to be Punya but at the same time, snatching the food from someone’s mouth felt like Paap.
At that very momemt, I felt something strange and later in time realised that it actually ignited the light leading towards the spiritual path. I don’t know why but I find the spiritual inclination inherently present in me. I want to explore it more. I thank this platform of os.me and grace of Om Swami Ji for this initiative of expressing myself through the blogs.
