JUST CHILL!!!!

Are you absent minded ?

Hmm……

Okay…

Let us have a small analysis by relating to these absent minded behaviours ?

– Searching for your glasses while wearing your glasses.

– Texting someone to tell them that you can’t find your phone.

– Completely blanking on the reason you called when the other person picks up the phone.

– “Breaking” an item of gossip to the friend who told you it originally.

– Momentarily forgetting your best friend’s name.

– Only ever managing to say “Happy birthday!” with the word “belated” in the middle.

– Never ever being on time, and never ever being able to figure out why.

– Walking into a room and wondering why you went in there.

– Walking back into the room you came from, and wondering why you were in there.

Now that I’m sure you know how absent minded you were ,

🎼🎼🎼🎼Let us spend a moment of silence and call it our sins for the times we were absent minded…..🎼🎼🎼🎼

The secret motive of the absent-minded is to be innocent while guilty. Absent-mindedness is spurious innocence.” – Saul Bellow Oh!!!! I had been absent , that I forgot to tell you what Absent minded means…

Absentmindedness is where a person shows inattentive or forgetful behaviour.

Did you hear about the absent-minded who stood in front of the mirror for hours together wondering where he had seen himself before.

One day at an hospital –

Nurse – You’ve just become the father of a baby boy!

Husband – Don’t tell my wife, I want to surprise her.

The Buddha said that the mind left unsupervised is like a wild elephant that runs over everything in its path, destroying beautiful trees and villages. The good news is that we can always choose to be present and tame our minds, shining the light of awareness upon our own thoughts, listening to the stories of our minds calmly and gently, just as a loving parent would tend for his child’s cries.

Don’t take life too seriously … just chill…

I had distant relative in Kerala, Kerala Christian names are funny sometimes – Peter Kunjumon, he was a very serious and a hard working man. He loves multitasking always. He was a good husband and great father. There was just one complaint with him. i.e. He was very absent minded… he is amazingly absent. My aunt believes that he is the most absent creature in this world.

One day my aunt was busy in the kitchen preparing biryani for the weekend and my uncle was busy preparing a presentation on his laptop.

Their 6 year old kid was in the toilet in the upstairs. Conversation b/w mother and kid – Mone … Appi itto ? ( Son … did you shit ? )

The kid shouting – Amma … appi Kazhichu… seekirom va…. ( I did the shit, come fast )

My aunt was busy in the kitchen and asked my uncle for help… uncle was so seriously engrossed into work that he didn’t notice aunty… aunty, in a loud voice shouted – Peter!!!!

uncle in a very quick reaction got up from the chair

Aunt – Can you Please go wash the bum…

Uncle immediately rushed to the toilet…

There was a sound of the water flush.

Aunt relaxed…

When uncle Kunjimon came back aunt smiled and said “thanks dear… ” uncle without any reply sat for work again…

After a romantic pause, again the kid was shouting – “Amma appi kazhichu seekiram vaaa… ”

My aunt was confused and furiously looked at uncle who just realised that he had washed his butt instead…

Friends, we are the ones that cause our own absent-mindedness. Being present is a conscious choice that only we can make for ourselves.

Uncle Peter Kunjumon seriousness of life and his absent mindedness had no limits… one day there was chaos in their street because of uncle and they had to vacate that house just because of that incident… my aunt was laughing when she said this to us….

My aunt was not in town one day as her mother was sick…

my uncle was all alone as aunt had taken her kid along with her…

a middle aged lady used to sell vegetables regularly in that street..

That day she came and was calling out loudly and rang the bell to deliver the vegetables…

my uncle who was all tired woke up to the lady’s voice… he wore nothing but just a Lungi… he tried to tightened the lungi as he approached the door…

the lady smiled and handed over the vegetables.. uncle just left his another hand that was holding the lungi and held the vegetable tray…

the lungi fell down.. the lady got scared and screamed loudly… uncle, out of fear dropped the tray and ran inside the house…

As I said, his absent mindedness had no limits… The reason he might forget something is because his mind is like a computer. He has so much useless stuff stored up in there, that when he forget to clean out his Mind’s Cache, it has no room for new information. Like wearing pants!

Uncle who was hiding himself, with a heavy heart beat , nervous and watching outside from the window… that is when he had realised that he left his lungi there…

The lady who ran away, felt ashamed, she came back walking slowly to collect the fallen vegetables on the road…

Uncle was so much absent minded that he forgot there were other clothes in the room to cover himself… of all the dress he had , he was so focussed on his lungi…

He slowly opened the door and looked around and ran out to pick his lungi…

It was such an unfortunate timing , when the lady and uncle both approached towards the spot Simultaneously…

Uncle was shocked to see the lady and the lady was shocked to see my uncle fully naked again…

The lady screamed loudly – Rape Rape Rape— when she watched my uncle running out naked…

Ah!!! That was heights of being absent !!!!

Being absent-minded is like being away from home, being away from ourselves – our mind is loose and it runs in all directions, past, future, or imaginary fields. It’s enough to return to your breath and, whenever you do, it is the first act of kindness – because you, more than anyone else, need your own presence.

Are you absent minded ? Don’t take life too seriously … just chill…
