Who You Are

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.

The Horror of Destiny

“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.

It All Starts With a Question

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.

My Perfectly Twisted World

Is the world is a good place? Is it a bad place? Neutral? The world we live in, is pathological. It does not have it’s own personality, but it’s pathological. The world works on principles created by humans, not an angel. If the engine of the world is pathological, the world itself is bound to be the same.

We consume ourselves through ego, we run behind money, fame, name. All just for temporary ecstacy. Without different gear sizes, a clock won’t work. In the same way, without bad people, good people, or neutral people, the world cant work. Aimless dreams such as ‘I’ll make everyone kind’ is not possible. Influencing a group is different from influencing the world. Bad people will be replaced, and so will good people.

How is this world perfectly twisted? No one will call themselves a bad person, and good people will never say they’re good. At the end of the day, neutral answers are given to us, just to maintain equilibrium. If it’s not maintained, fear of getting killed, or betrayed arises.

My twisted world is perfect, perfect for survival, for it is the one that created that concept. You must survive in this world, but also, try to live too. Live with all your heart. Try to treat the world’s pathology, or at least try not to add to it.

Indifferent Salvation

Many species of animals thrive on earth. Dominance separates one another but balance is maintained as much as possible. Suffering is a constant for every life form, but is it the same?

The problems of a rich man may be heaven for that of the destitute. Problems for fish is heaven for a camel. Lots of these comparisons show us that life is not indifferent. It is purely biased.

When someone says they believe in indifferent salvation they are probably lying, or try and maintain a good reputation. Would anyone want to save someone who would go on to kill other people? That’s what it means to have indifferent salvation. What is right and what is wrong, cannot be decided so easily.

Salvation and forgiveness must not be indifferent, but not completely biased either. There is always a chance that someone may change due to the kindness they receive. You should always be willing to place bets on people. Sometimes large bets, in cases where you’re sure the person will change, and small bets when you’re not sure.

Be kind, but don’t be a god, for that is not your responsibility. Your responsibility is to be human.

The End of My World

Life is exactly like a dictionary, except, instead of words with their meaning, you have clusters of paths with their own meaning. Many words are different, but have the same meaning, just like the paths of life, different, but leading to the same place. So why do you have to worry about which path you choose? Though a few words are interchangeable, their connotations are not. In the same way, the paths of life, though leading to the same destination, are different.

Rocky roads, do you stick to them, or change when you have the chance? Money, a desire of many, is wanted by this man who holds on to business in pursuit of it. He walks along this rocky, treacherous road we call happiness, but decides the road is too rocky, and changes his path, to get the loan he forever wanted. The road is smooth now, wonderful in fact, but now his saviours are asking him to return all of it. He looks at his family, and decides to change roads once more. Theft. The once smooth and comfortable road we identify as fantasy, caused a major slip. The road was too smooth, too smooth to handle. He has fallen from grace and now behind bars he realises that the end of his world has come.

Avoiding the end of your world is not a hefty task, but not a light task either. Choose a path you can stick to, a path where you can’t lose footing. Otherwise, you might as well reach the end of your world as well. The path will be horrible, filled with agony and despair, but later will lead to a glorious concept known as success.

Are you curious to know what the end of my world is? It is when I allow the outside world influence the path I rightfully chose, and fall as result of something which could have been avoided. Where there is an end, there also exists a beginning, and hence, the true end of your world, is when you don’t find that new beginning. Falling from grace is not the end, but not returning just as graceful, is.
