Rise and fall and then again rise, that’s the purpose of our lives. We sometimes feel so low in our life because of our defeats or emotional turmoil that we think, this is the end and dejection take control over us. We should try to think, well in thermodynamic term that each event in our life is a path function and it will fade away with time. Or in a much broader way, entropy (disorder) of our life is always going to increase as explained by the second law of thermodynamics so enjoy this turmoil instead of getting sad over it. Well for many, this is a very silly way of thinking to console ourselves but we should always try to find ways to move on in our lives. Winning or loosing , sadness or happiness , rise and fall and every other feelings are just the illusions of our mind which depends only on our perceptions and conceptions. We are loosers if we think in our hearts , we are the happiest people in the world if we think in our hearts. The key is contentment , our true Karma which suggests to do things just for the sake of doing and not for getting happiest results. I want to share some of the lines from my previous post ‘A Tale of Sacrifice’.
The truth is felicity in the doing for others,
The victory is Karma and not in its result,
The felony is idleness and not endeavors,
The truth is perseverance, the sage said.
The inspirations of life come from nature and you need to just surrender yourself in the arms of it to achieve the ultimate goal of your life. I am greatly inspired and touched by the lines from the movie and novel ,‘The Cloud Atlas’ which goes like this
Fear, belief, love, phenomenon that determine course of our lives, these forces begin long before we are born and continue after we perish. Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we build our future……
So surrender yourself to the forces of nature and follow the path showed to us by the great minds of our times. You can do so by trying to hear the echoes from the omens of nature , books and everything around you.
