Life is as beautiful as it is mysterious. Giving up, letting up and committing suicide are among the biggest injustices anyone can do on themselves. Shutting potential of people, tying people to non-meaningful lives and making them not believe in their capabilities is witchcraft in itself. When you understand how powerful the mind is, you will tap into its potential every day until the day you die.
You have not lived well enough if you have not ridden on a Super bike at 300km/hr and felt everything blur before your eyes as you eat up miles of the road. Better still, driving a road beast that revs up on the road and makes everyone hold their hearts in their hands and make silent prayers. Your foot hard on the gas, hands shifting wildly as you engage gears, and loud music blaring… Have you bungee jumped down a cliff in a suicide lunge and seen the distant rocks, water and trees rush towards your sweaty head, as you scream your head off? That thrill and rush of adrenaline will make you want to more of what life can give, as you live right on the edge…!
An hour or so with one of the most prominent, wealthy and influential people in the world like President Trump, Warren Buffet, or Tesla’s owner Elon Musk will surely change your perspective about life. Their view and interpretation of life could be the most intriguing and will make you appreciate your life more, as you strive to achieve more.
Have you sat quietly in a safe room with a billion dollars new note bills on your bed, contemplating your next step? How will you feel walking the streets with that cash stashed in your shirt pockets, trouser pockets and jacket, knowing almost everyone is striving to get a piece of what you have?
A dive to the sea floor, seeing fish and fauna as they thrive in a totally different world to our familiar world will mesmerize you. Even there, life goes on, oblivious of the troubles on the ground. From the mighty and gigantic whales, deadly killer sharks, octopuses to the slithery anacondas all strive for survival, in the cycle of life. Out on safari in the Savannah, a pride of lions, headed by their dominant male out on a hunt will make you cherish the order of the day in human society. In the wild, it is survival for the fittest, with the prey always on the run, chased by the predator.
Yet, God ensured there is balance even in such natural unfolding of events.
Life is beautiful. You just have to change your viewing glass to see more clearly and vividly. Spending time alone reading meaningful books, contemplating life and clearing of your mind from the clutter and the noise of the day will certainly do you good. Wherever you find the time, seek new experiences that make you see the totality and vastness of life, beyond the debts, troubles and worries that we carry in the day. I look up at the sky, see the millions of stars, the constant sunrise and sunset and feel glad I live to see this. There is more to this life. What great hand put such order to things, that the earth does not hurtle away and get lost in space? Be grateful, and seek for answers.
