Note #16 US Diaries 2017 

‘The things that you run away from, will chase you’
Today afternoon it was pizza for lunch at the summer camp at Chinmaya Vrindavan. As I saw the option of curd rice as Prasad at the temple, I happily opted for curd rice over pizza as I was never fond of pizza (in fact I run away from it) . I relished the curd rice a lot and I thought that my purushartha (freewill) allowed me to go away from Pizza. 
I was invited for dinner by a friend and as I was entering the restaurant I asked him, ‘Which restaurant are we going to?’ He said, ‘It’s the pizza place I was talking about. I thought I should take you here at least today.’ 
I was reminded of an instance that Swami Mitrananda ji once shared in his talk where he shared a few anecdotes and said, ‘What you run away from, will chase you throughout your life.’
