We’ve all seen movies in which it takes one life changing event for a guy to fix everything in his life.. It takes him 2 hours of courage and strength to change his life forever..
But what about real life?
When we live our life day by day.. Things like death seems very distant. We live one day at a time and often ponder about how we want our life to be in near future. What we don’t realise is that we might not be physically strong at that point of time. Family, love, work... all the novelties quickly become habits.
The strength that is crucial to survive in this age is the one by which you wake up every day, perform your daily tasks and actually stand up for those who you love. No therapy or yoga can teach you how to gain this strength. It only comes from within yourself when you accept that only you can take control of your life and no one else.
I’ve read about many mindfulness techniques and programmes which are known to change your life with a magical trick (only after you deposit few dollars ofcourse). I’ve seen people spending half of their lives in just trying to learn how to magically deal with painful thoughts or difficult feelings. Sadly, these are nothing more than placebo effect (which works for many of us!)
Only life can teach us this art to live, smile and also support others, even when you feel overwhelmed inside. Since the day I realized that only I am ultimate source of happiness, I stopped clinging on other remedies.
Think about it. If you being the supreme species can’t figure out what’s wrong inside you, how can others (who are exactly like you), transform you into superman?
Trust your instincts and stop clinging on meaningless things.
I know it’s hard to believe that you can survive alone when you are alone in desert but that palm tree which you are clinging on to, won’t make your journey any easy. It will actually stop you from moving forward… decreasing any chances of possible survival.
