Take a deep breath.
Give Time, Time.
I hear many people talk about the void they feel inside themselves and feel around, at times in others. I am one of them. I have been, for some time, trying to figure out the reason behind my void and trying to fill it, and today I would like to share what I feel, one way of looking at it.
People often fill this void with things and people who come at their disposal or ease. Being vulnerable is not about good or bad; it’s about owning yourself and the emotions that make you human. We aren’t taught that, and therefore, when a 22-year-old comes into the real world with no stability and new to themselves, they fill this void with wrong people, mistakes, bad choices, loneliness, and indecisiveness which sometimes gives momentary pleasure and sometimes grieve.
We humans must stop at times and look around. Look at the trees growing, new roads being laid down, the changing billboards, the neighbour’s kid getting a new bicycle, asking your friend about their wellbeing, giving a hand to the rickshaw puller on an elevated road, breathing, and simply observing growth around. In people, in you and the environment. Spend a few minutes to look at things that evolve around you. That is the purpose of life. To come, see and observe, live to the fullest and one day, Leave.
The best part about living, in my view, is that one always has a choice. A human is just one option away from a life of contentment. People get to make this choice every day. Some understand the value, and some don’t. Be grateful you, one day it’ll be the last and boy, you won’t even get to know.
Lucy, a movie starring Morgan Freeman as Doctor Norman, says something about time and evolution, which goes like this “ For primitive beings like us, life seems to have only one single purpose: gaining time. And it is going through a time that seems to be also the only real purpose of each of the cells in our bodies. To achieve that aim, the mass of the cells that make up earthworms and human beings has only two solutions. Be immortal, or to reproduce. If Habitat is not sufficiently favourable or nurturing, the cell will choose immortality, in other words, self-sufficiency and self-management.
On the other hand, if the Habitat is favourable, they will reproduce. That way, when they die, they hand down essential information and knowledge to the next cell, which hands it down to the next cell and so on. Thus knowledge and learning are handed down through time”.
Our Habitat is favourable. Therefore, it is our duty and biological need to reproduce and share our knowledge and learnings with others. I want to pass this advice on filling the void within you to live your life to the fullest and be contented.
Fill your heart with Joy. Feel the bliss around. Listen to people. Listen to nature. It is vital to feeling joy when you see someone or something growing. Feel the gratitude in yourself. We have been blurring the lines between pleasures of life and mere joy. Sit with yourself and find the difference. Mistakes are a part of life, not life, and to be okay with all facets of life, one needs to absorb the bliss that is present around in simple yet magnificent things such as the smile on your co-worker’s face when they see you. Be aware of your thoughts and what you feel. Listen to yourself as well. When you speak, you share. When you listen, you learn.
Constant positive advancement can help you lead a life that you feel is right. Everything is energy that vibrates at a particular frequency. I hope you decode it.
Now, Listen and enjoy the song.
