They say love grows with time. I too agreed blindly. Then one day news agencies came hustling bustling with the headlines of a divorce after 17years of alliance. And that too happening out of the apprehensions of future. A divorce because of the assumptions that they may get divorced in future...I asked myself questions on my belief.
“There are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies in politics”...quoted a man who quotes in rarest of rare circumstances, MR. Manmohan Singh. I again agreed blindly. But again interrogated personal self on applicability in life...are there any permanent friends outside politics???
But then came the masterstroke...”when our own life, our own existence for which debates and struggles are on is not permanent, how can we expect even the existence of word permanent in lexicon”.
Is there anything which is permanent in this temporal world??? And I say yes...temporary nature of everything is permanent.
Decipher the following code...
Life is a wet soiled long, extensively elongated footpath...so long that it has a blurred end...u don’t know where will the path lead you...but we keep on walking...placing our footsteps...we keep on walking leaving foot impressions on wet soil...the impressions are our past...permanent...no one can change that...where you are standing is present..You can mould the impression but can’t hide it...the patch in front of you is future, a temporary stability ready to be changed permanently...you don’t know where will you reach but you can decide how will you place your feet...you can decide the areas where you will walk with soft ankles...area where you will do bunny hop...man only decides his actions...and in a way decides his past..a man only choose a line on the footpath which he follows.
Only past and destiny is permanent...time gone and actions done are permanent...they can’t be changed...rest everything is temporary...present is temporary...Future is uncertain...but the destination is pre destined. Where will the footpath of our life will take us is destined, can’t be changed. What soil and climatic conditions we will face is also destined but how will we react to adversities is our test of character.
Everything is destined except the decisions of man!!!
The destination of the footpath we are on is destined...It is destiny to be on this tract...it is destiny to find soil hard or soft...it is destiny to have heavy feet or light delicate ankles...these things can’t be changed...these are those attributes of our life which are inherent to us, which can’t be changed, which are permanent...which are destined....but we can realise our haves and have not’s and can wisely decide our actions so that we leave a glorious past...we have trouble free conditions for present and we don’t create a mess of our future.
We can’t complain that we slipped on wet soil...we can only blame our own selves for not placing feet with utmost care. What we are, is permanent, our destiny. What we will be is again permanent, our destiny. But how will we reach there is our choice, how carefully and wisely will we understand the conditions we are in will decide how easily we will reach our destined destination.
What you are born is destiny, permanent. What you will die is destiny. How you will reach there is our choice. We are destined to reach there, but with how much pride, it is up to us to decide.
Our actions not only decide what past we leave behind us but also determine in what conditions we place ourselves.
We watch others walking on their paths...we assume them to be perfect...we suppose their walk to be accurate and try to imitate them on our paths without realising the soil conditions are different. We must walk our own way as our soil demands. This way we can convert an uncertain temporary present-future into a worth watching permanent past.
Apprehensions for future are must. One must stand on his path and analyse the path conditions to plan a strategy for future...but one must not over analyse...who knows how hard sunshine will when we reach a yard ahead.
Past present future are not distinct...they are like a rim chain of cycle. How swiftly present will change into past and how unknowingly future transcends into present is remarkable...
Present is like a stamp machine...changing temporary uncertain time into permanent past...
And life is just as above...we are guinea pigs of god, laboratories. He experiments with us. But we can’t complain.
Realise the soils and walk cautiously. ..we are already on a slippery sticky or may be quicksandy conditions...lets not fall but see where our destination is...
