When dramas begin to unfold before you

There are days when the planets, especially Saturn, decide to show you reality as it is. What really happens in the peak of those moments when reality begins to unfold before your own eyes?
You will ring the door bell to convey an information and the lady at the door will pretend that she was sleeping and how you thoughtlessly intruded and ask you, “Now what?’ Before you could even begin, she would go on her own trip to tell you how useless this information was and slam the door on you. If such things can happen to Sri Krishna, it can happen to you and me too. Sri Krishna was driven out of a house when he knocked the door with hunger and asked for food.
These are the splendid moments of life when reality speaks to you directly, showing you those people whom you need not waste your precious time talking to or entertaining them.
Reality can unfold itself when someone on whom you invested all your time and energy, and suddenly that person tells something to make you feel how silly you are. It can be shattering and heart-breaking. But yet, it is not that individual, but reality speaking to you in no unmistakable terms to learn to rely on your own self for your happiness and well-being and not look for props and support outside.
It can happen between friends and other interactions too. You might be yanking away all your personal stories to someone whom you thought was your friend, but sooner (better if it was so!) or later, that person shows up her original form of nastiness, hatred, jealousy—being the totally opposite of what you thought. Well, it can hurt big time, but tell yourself it is the loving hand of the universe that has placed you within its palms, protecting, shielding and guiding the little mind that is lost in not understanding the vastness, depth and undercurrents of the situations and persons you spend time with.
There may be sometime when you are caught in an abusive or manipulative relationship not really knowing that it is so. Then one fine day, the person who has been pretending so long to be so good and charming, will act up and show up. When you see the true colours, don’t panic and jump frantically with knee-jerk reactions. It is just the hand of the good old universe again. At the right time and in the right moment, the true picture is revealed so that you move on with more clarity, strength and independence.
When it comes to renunciation of relationships, remember it is always good when the not so good things happen. Welcome them whole-heartedly, for they are the situations that make renunciation a happier and smoother experience. If everything and person around you is bound with love, there is no possibility to experience the joy of liberation, the freedom of an independent mind.
Situations like this just are an external manifestation of the hidden karmic mountains in you coming down with a big crash, and yes of course they are reasons to rejoice for who wants to carry burdens and loads of lifetimes on the shoulders of their life?
