Modern society demands more money, more materials, more power, more holdings and the materialistic pervasiveness. Sounds detached but the truth is our life is defined not by the things we gained here but by the things what we left behind when we dissolve in the soil.
There are certain things which are absolutely wrapped in the ego and they completely misguide us, but at the end they are all illusions and worth nothing. Ego is the false sense of identity, the identity we are trying to create from all there materialistic things and the opportunity cost to grab those false fulfillment’s are the burden we carry on. These yardsticks of ego limits our true and eternal nature guiding us to limit our perspectives and view towards this world. This ego always addresses our deficits and acquires the sense of competition and stress, life must be celebrated and the sufficient and complete dimensions of life must be addressed. I am not being against the idea of living a luxury life, gathering wealth and creating a new identity but I am against the process and opportunity costs of these beholding.
Are we ever being able to celebrate our life and acknowledge how beautiful is this being is?
Universal truth is every human being have their own darkness and ignorant part in their life, these dimensions makes us focus in wrong things and leave mainstream to achieve auxiliaries. Once you heighten your consciousness, you will realize that everything is wonder. Don’t ever try comparing your existence with the asset you have or materials you gain, this process is the endless journey of desperateness. Try seeing the beauty and elegance in the imperfection, imperfection is a perfection in itself if you just change the way of looking. We all are the equally loved creatures by nature, by god and by the creation, aren’t we?
Sadly we just tend in focusing more upon visible ignore the invisible. We all are the cosmos in ourselves, have we even realize that how much are we loved?
Bible says John 15:12
“This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.”
In epic Mahabharata, Krishna with his divine love said, “What ineffable joy does one find through Love of me, the blissful Atman. Once that joy is realized, all earthly pleasures fade into nothingness.”
And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.
(سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #195
Budhha says that
“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.”
I mean even our prophets/ lords and gurus have been long asking us to acknowledge what we have and realize the true essence of living the life.
Frustration is obvious but love can bring fulfillment, life demands fulfillment to be lived fully. Trusting in yourself and loving your deficits will transform your frustrations into fascinations.
A smile can change a lot of thing and smiling costs nothing, my request is to find invisible reasons to smile. Your smiles must not be always dictated by the materialistic achievements or the message of your ego, smile when you feel you are alive, smile when you feel the rising sun, smile when you realize you are equally loved by the creator as others.
