People have different ideas about life, so do I. While I am still trying to figure out the sense or senselessness of my life, I am penning some words for the "wise readers." Hope their wisdom will help me decipher the cross-word puzzle of my life to some extent. Please do charity and read this page by a poor fellow!

Negative Influence

We are constantly bombarded with negativity throughout the day and all seven days of the week. This is the side effect of living in modern high tech society. Just switch-on the TV – and suddenly you are face to face with the news of conflicts, terror attacks, celebrity gossips, floods, hurricanes; everything negative. It is not that there are no good people in the world or people don’t do good things, it is just that they don’t make news. Good news is no news! Can someone tell me WHY? But this is how modern media works to make money on commercials. I think they will go out of business if they start promoting good news and good people. Right?

This might be the grudge of a freak like me who is obsessed about good values and heavenly meanings of life.

Quote’s that Reflect My Life

I know that people are much saner than me and have wonderful ideas about life. It is, however, my own humble limitations that I often don’t get them. For instance, someone said – We are born wet, naked, and hungry. Then things get worse. I fail to understand what can get worse than being naked and hungry. Here is another piece of brain of wise man: Life is like a beautiful melody, only the lyrics are messed up. Unfortunately, I don’t have musical ears so this one is way beyond my reach – that is the reason I go to musicals and enjoy melodious sleep! A rare novel idea from my tiny grey matter.

I can tell you honestly in plain English that my IQ on life closely matches what Cary Grant says: My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can. Please don’t ask me how I occupy my self – I have yet to figure out better ways of keeping busy than writing articles. Lately, I also discovered that some people actually read what I write – it must be pure accident, I suppose! Because accidents do happen in life.

I also vibe well with Jack Handey when he says: I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it; and with Ashleigh Brilliant: My life has a superb cast but I can't figure out the plot. I like these people; they can read my mind and say it loud too!

    Life is a story. We are the actors and actresses in each others story, including our own. We play different roles. We act them out either consciously or as puppets on a string (on auto pilot). Life is what you make it. You write yourself in; you can write yourself out; you can change your character; you can change the scenery.
    The pen is in your hands. You can rewrite your story as often as you like. As we live our stories, we have many experiences: we grow in knowledge, wisdom, strength; we learn how to be happy, sad, angry. We learn to love and hate. Our stories have drama, comedy, adventure, action, horror. The good thing is: We each have the power to create our own life. Are you writing your life story or is somebody else writing it for you?

    Thanks Patricia. Life is all about change -- nothing is permanent except impermanence in this world.

    Good to have you sharing.
