METANOIA by Amit Aggarwal
Change in one’s way of life resulting from spiritual conversion.
“Are you alive? Can you breathe? Can you touch me? Do you feel anything? If you can, you and I, we are the same.
But were we always? I’m not so sure!
For forty years of my life, my breath was free, my touch acceptable and I felt I was alive.
Until the time when all of this was taken away from me. My being ceased to each singular breath. Tomorrow was just a hope.
I am Amit Aggarwal, and this is a story of my resurgence. A life where I breathe and live for every moment. A life where I let my feet touch the earth a little more, the waters wash me to a new everyday and the air caress me bare each time she comes knocking on my window sill.
Join me, as three of my long lost friends earth, water and air, take me on a journey. A journey where I shall surface and be nurtured, be given a form and made to feel who I truly was meant to be and be carried forward with my wings spread far and wide !”
An ode to the three elements that form the centre of our existence and help nurture us, give us the freedom to mould ourselves to be authentically us and carry us forward, Earth, Water and Air inspire the genesis of Metanoia.
