When it comes to marriage, I am thinking about my parents.
Arranged married, Indian.
That is what it is mainly.
If that involves love?
I don’t know, really.
There seems to be a lot of mystery around that.
I have seen documentaries on Netflix and even spoken about it with some Indian people.
I don’t think they know either what it is about.
But when I think about my father and the reason he died.
It was because he couldn’t get further in life.
He couldn’t elevate, move forward in life.
I don’t know if this was part of this system he was living.
His soul’s journey came to an end, although his body was not that far.
However, the progression of his soul, ended.
You must understand that Indians are very spiritual and this spirituality gives them a sense of belief and existence.
The ending of what he was trying, to progress in life, wasn’t a failure, but that was how his soul had laid that path for him.
A legacy I keep, to understand that although destiny is already written.
To progress and move forward is a deep root in my own genes.
Although, the ending of a soul’s journey, doesn’t mean you have to be dying.
It is this what the mind believes.
An ending is not always a death, it can also just be a new beginning.
But I can feel that his time has ended and there is still some mystery to be unfolding for me.
When it comes to the arranged marriage of my parents.
What is their legacy?
As my father was poor and my mother was richer.
Does it mean I will marry someone just like that?
As I am already rich.
In my ways of understanding, moving and being.
Is this poorness something I am attracting in my partner(s)?
A legacy of my father?
Or have I ever been?
Something I am starting to be leaving.
The roots of a tree, sometimes go so deep, that we can barely touch and see.
As I spoke with my friend and she explained her marriage, was stable and sound.
From shared experiences, of getting to know each other and overcoming obstacles of life.
Is that something I still have the time for?
Is what I think.
Or is it better to lay that foundation of a healthy and happy marriage of the human standards that I keep?
Although I am still single and not really ready to commit, yet.
I do believe that being with someone that values the same standard can be a great love recipe.
