Most of u all must be wondering what on earth happened to me? I disappeared for one weekend and i reappear making claims of starting life afresh and new, being a new me.....blah blah blah blah blah blah... Some of u must be irritated with the permanent smile that looks pasted on my face.
Ok... i got that ;)
I went to Landmark. Nope, its not the book store. Its Landmark education.
Yes, its true to its name... Its a landmark event in my life which has educated me... So landmark education.
Now a lot of you out there may have raised ur eye brows already . Search engines will search a lot of muck and splash you with it.
I was a big skeptic too. I took it because Jaysal asked me to. I couldnt understand what the heck he was talking. I started feeling miserable in my relationship. I could take it no more.
Something snapped and i said, fine, if u think this will help, il do it too. I had nothing, so what would i lose?
I spoke to dad, spoke to my boss, figured everythin out and finally found myself on the 9 th morning standing in koramangala, nervous and scared. 300 and more strange people. My!! what did i get myself into?
I was a skeptic, not a cynic, so i went in and surrendered myself to this ordinary looking man, who coaxed, cajoled, yelled, screamed, abused, empathised and entertained us.
There were times when i was upset hearing someone 's story, times when i almost fell off my chair laughing, and at times when i wanted to scream" what the hell is going on here?"
LM made me do a lot of things i would have never ever dreamt of doing. I was talking, laughing, sharing with strangers irrespective of their backgrounds, gender, age, religion and the likes.
I was convinced on saturday that it was truly going well for me.
Sunday afternoon, something snapped again. I went crazy...I was convinced again that LM was not working for me. I just did'nt understand it. What the hell was this man saying? I called Jaysal who patiently tried to help me out all the time i was there. All the time I had doubts he would hear me out and smoothen my frayed nerves. But this time, he just couldnt coz my nerves had got totlly jangled up and had a tight knot in them.
I went back in. And..............when i came out My eyes frantically hunted for Jaysal. Without a second thought, I reached out to this man and hugged him. The world was just a hum in the background. 340 people were coming out with me, but who cared? I was in a different world.
He saved my life, and our relationship, by just doing one lil thing, by enrolling me into LM.
Do I care what's written about Landmark? Do I care if it's called a cult? Do i care if people say they hypnotise / brainwash? Do i care ???
No, buddy! I don't. I've been LANDMARKED .........FOR LIFE.
