There is a mutually agreed belief that the purpose of life is the pursuit of happiness. And less is talked about how to pursue happiness; is it on the cost of other people? Everyone tells you to be happy but nobody defines the way to acquire things that make us happy; the ethical and more appropriate way perhaps. Sometimes, we acquire happiness for us by hurting others. The inequality and injustice occur in this world because they are the reason of happiness for some other people. The moral and ethical perspective in the pursuit of happiness is often ignored and is remained undefined. Hence, we witness social inequality worldover.
Your belief won’t affect anyone else. It will only affect you and your life. So choose wisely.
When I realize, I can’t talk well
I open my laptop,
And start to write..
So that I feel worthy enough
Capable of sharing ideas,
And influence minds..
With every realization,
Of my inability to talk,
I come up with a piece,
That speaks my mind,
Worthy of listening
And worth sharing
There is a popular belief that we get life for once so we should make best of it, and the sole purpose of this is to achieve happiness, which even most wealthy people in this world, can’t enjoy life. Life doesn’t spare anyone, not even wealthy people. Either some people die of poverty, or some people spend millions to seek cure for illness. The powerful has no accountability in this world, and the murderer of 100 people will be hanged for once if caught. so there can never be justice in this life.
On the contrary to this, there is a belief that there is life hereafter, which is eternal.. this belief, gives us strength of bear all worldly problems, illnesses, poverty, injustice because we know that by facing the pain in this life, there is a greater reward. We have to pay for our actions. If we do good, we will get good and if we do evil deeds, we will be punished. This belief, changes the entire life of people. If we have firm belief on this, there would be no injustice, or cruelty in this worldly life. We get strength of bear pain, and hardship, and the powerful in this world, will have a fear to be accountable in the next life. and the poor and miserable people would have a relief that this worldly pain is temporary and this would end in few years.
Thus, what we believe in life, changes our lives. Everyone dies anyway.
Choose to believe wisely.
I am a person comprised of an old soul
The soul that has travelled into ages,
Generation after generation,
That has seen several autumns and spring..
Each day I meet with a new evolved person inside me,
The old gets transformed into a new being,
With different purpose and ambition
And experiences changing passion
And finds different reasons,
To live and to serve..
This fluctuation keeps me on a journey that never ends..
Moving on a parallel road without any curve,
Each day, I look forward to a different cause,
Pursuit of which, becomes the core purpose of my existence,
The next day, I have another goal..
And it continues without any pause.
Nothing hurts me more than my self image
The complexes I’ve about myself
Getting more complicated. .
Making me inferior each passing moment
The chaotic thoughts make the most of noise
In my head, that shakes my soul
Keeping me away from desired peace
This was never my choice..
But it seems,
I find comfort in this turmoil
The disharmony gives fuel to my meaningless existence,
Of all the inconsistent experiences I have,
This chaos is the most consistent habitat of my ever changing mind.
I’m a writer
I find beauty in expression
Through words and phrases
With each emotion, I hide
In sentences that I write
I share a piece of my soul.
Writing is indeed an art
To explore the madness within
To wonder and wander,
On less travelled path..
It is a refuge that writer seeks
From the world of conformists
It is a wonderland that he creates
Where he grows and nourishes
his passion for intellect & wisdom.
