You may never know who you really are until the last moments you’re alive. Scary? Or relieving? Well, that depends on how you see your life. If you’re scared that you may never know who you are, that mostly means you have a heart of an angel. If you’re relieved that you may never know who you really are, then it’s clear that you may not have done things the way you wanted to in life.
Never be relieved about the fact that you may never learn the truth. It’s a curse that ignorance casts on you to receive short lived bliss. Don’t fall for it, never run away from who you really are. Don’t ignore your qualities, good or bad. Nourish the qualities which radiate goodness and malnourish your bad ones. Ah, the task now is, to identify what is good and bad. Unfortunately, you have to make this judgement call yourself. Be willing to bet that you can identify what is good and bad, for this, will truly tell you who you really are.
“One often meets destiny on the road he chose to avoid it.” This statement not only reflects truth, but harsh reality. The turtle from king fu panda really was genuinely wise after all.
‘Destiny’ is another blunt concept of life which holds no true meaning. If you were born in a family who owns a bookstore, you conveniently say, ‘it’s my destiny, or fate.’ When one says ‘I will change my destiny,’ I can’t help but laugh. You can’t change your destiny, you can only choose to pursue it. You can only choose IT. Destiny was never fixed, never told to you. It’s just a concept you think is imposed on you before you were born.
Of course, you can choose your path, your passion, but that doesn’t mean you’ve changed anything. It means you’re creating something. Understand that destiny is to be created, made, not changed.
Obviously, a peach seed will give rise only to a peach tree, and all humans will eventually die, so that’s my destiny. To die. Even if you do make that argument, YOU can select the WAY you die my friend. Always remember, almost everything in life is in your hands. Don’t cry over what’s not in your control, rather, embrace what you have.
One can make an argument and say, life itself is a question. What’s its purpose? The thing is, you make your purpose. You aren’t sent here with a pre existing goal, you make one. How do you make your purpose? Well, with a question.
As children we all asked weird questions and cringed upon them later, but those moments are what define us today. When children see something fascinating, it’s a given that they ask their parents what it is. The answer they give, is what turns children’s fate.
Mommy, what is that? Oh dear it’s a dreadful cat. Mommy what is that? It’s a beautiful cat dear. These influences are what makes us who we are. The questions you ask, the answers you get, all decide your fate.
Now, as an adult, you have the chance to curb your own fate with your own answers to your questions. Never stop being curious, for when you do, that will truly mean you are dead. Always spark your brain with knowledge. All you have to do, is ask a question.
