Mohan went about his life normally after his experiment of healing with the universal energy. Over a period of next few months, he started noticing his interactions with his father getting easier. There was an increasing level of bonhomie between him and his father as if either he himself or his father would somehow ensure that there were no confrontations. He felt a subtle change in his own attitude, which would make him avoid saying anything which could instigate his father to resist him. Even he also felt that his father had become much more accepting towards Mohan’s decisions, or had started expressing his intention of non-interference. Mohan was not sure if he could attribute this change to the healing or it was just a normal turn of events, which should have anyways happened with time.
Mohan continued in life with the memories of his past life revelations and his newly acquired knowledge of nature of his relations with some of his close relatives. So continued his ill habit of staring at women at every chance. Now, this habit had even taken a worst turn as Mohan’s gaze was now directly hitting the women at their bodily curves. Especially, when Mohan faced the back of the women, his gaze was even more audacious. Some of his women colleagues took notice of it at a random instance, but might have decided to give it a pass as Mohan, otherwise, had reputation of a very diligent and focused on work executive. Mohan also got to know whenever a colleague suspected him of his misadventures, and started avoiding gazing at that lady for some days to be safe. While he was being able to somehow protect himself, at the same time, he was growing aware of the urgency of some intervention that he needed to cure himself.
No matter how much he thought about finding a possible solution, Mohan did not find any solution to his problem. He had almost given up to this bad habit of staring at women at every chance. The only way out he found was keeping himself engaged in work, as at such times his this habit used to take a back seat. On the other hand, he continued with his intense practice of meditation and energy healing.
As soon as Mohan felt at ease about his responsibilities in life, he had stared being tormented by these demons well-known to him by now. While conducting business at his workplace and during lunch or in any other setting, Mohan again noticed himself looking out for people of opposite sex and staring them. This time the situation was even worse than before in the sense that his target set had swelled in terms of age, marital status etc. He was not so much distinguishing between unmarried girls, married ladies, women with children; as long as the lady looked attractive, he found himself staring at her. No matter how he wanted to control his urge to visually chase the ladies, his ability to control his gaze was dwindling with time as it had become almost compulsive for him to stare. He was not at all happy with what kind of a person he was turning out to be. Consciously, he was aware that he must not indulge in such visual retreat with live people, but as soon as the opportunity presented itself, he just had to give in to his desire. What perturbed him even more that this all was happening to him despite of the fact that he was making steady progress in his meditation practices.
After returning home that day, Mohan reviewed the day’s event in office and feared what could be in store for him. He was wondering if that girl whom he was staring at would complain about him to the HR? And, in that case, would HR decide to take any action against him? Would he be soon out of job for charges of sexual harassment? And, would he be able to find a job in any other reputable company? He was wondering if what he did calls for such harsh punishment for him? Unable to find answers, he decided to see how things turn out over next few days in office.
