Am I traveling???

I'm in a bus and on my way to Delaware. There are different kind of people who travel along with me. I can see happiness in some faces, tiredness in few faces and some don't have any kind of expression looks like they are in balanced state. My neighbor is in deep sleep. I started starring outside.

Everywhere it's green and green:) my heart starts saying HELLO to the trees which passes by. There is a tree in the middle, it's the tallest among all the trees. But but... It is dying.. All the leaves are faded.. Yes, it's in her last days. My heart stopped there and started talking to this tree.

This tree lives here for few centuries. My heart tries to read her thoughts. It seems to be in a very balanced state. My heart starts asking several questions.

Anton : Hey you looks so amazing. You are the tallest one among your friends!

Tree : Ha ha ha!

Anton : Excuse me! Why are you laughing?

Tree. : I know the truth. I only have few hours or few days!

Anton : .... Do you have any last wish?

Tree. : Last wish! Why?

Anton : Didn't you say that you are dying?

Tree. : Yes, my this form is coming to an end.

Anton : what does that mean?

Tree. : In another 100 years I will become the fertilizer and will be utilized by several other trees. Everything changes it's form from one to another.

Anton : ..(I am stunned by the speech of the old tree)

Tree. : why do you humans think you are superior and haave the power to control everything???

Anton : Don't you see the advancements? Are you gonna deny the intellect of people like Einstein, Newton...??

Tree. : Hahaha!!

Anton : Why are you laughing again?-

Tree. : Ok, think logically! Let's assume, if the great Newton comes back to life. Do you think he will be able to operate computers and latest inventions?? That is going to take few years for him to understand all your inventions!! Isn't it?

Anton : Yes!!!

Tree. : Let's talk about you... Do you have control over yourself? Can you change your birth and death??

Anton : No, but the present is in my hands, i can control my present...

Tree. : Hahaha

Anton : !!!

Tree. : It's not in your control. You are controlled by the present. You are just a part of the flow. Sometimes you might reach pleasant shore and sometimes the other way. Be in the flow... In the flow of life.

Anton : It's nice talking to you. Who knows we might meet again in future in different forms:) let us flow in the path of life....

Oh my God. Where am I??? I reached Delaware!!!! I thought I'm still in NY.. Did I really travel??????
