One of the biggest enigmas proposed to homo sapiens to unravel is ‘life’. Ironic, isn’t it, that we are all living our lives without knowing what life in sooth means. For some people, life is a race. They study hard so that they can get a good job; moreover, they work hard so that their children can study in the best schools and get a good job, and this cycle goes on for generations. But in my opinion this is not life. For me, life is taking each moment as it comes, living in the present, but nonetheless also being prepared for whatever kismet holds. Furthermore, life is acknowledging the Lilliputian moments which are often overlooked, like the simple pleasure of breathing.
The idea of finding your purpose in life has always been beguiling. We all have to travel that road to find our purpose in life some day or the other. Some of us have already begun, some are just getting started and some might feel that they have already found the purpose of their lives, but little do they realize that life is not bound to have only one purpose. Just at the end of one road is the beginning of another; finding one’s purpose in life is the beginning of a chain which will ultimately lead us to the meaning of life.
We are all living in a labyrinth called life and once we find our way out of it we will understand what life is, but most of us lack the courage to leave our happy little space inside the labyrinth and venture out in search of the unknown.
Life is a miracle, a miracle of which we are all part of. Without us, life could have not been possible, but without life we could have not been here. We are all interdependent and it is this inter-dependency which binds us, which gives us a sense of exhilaration when we help others, because by helping them it is us that we help.
Everybody looks at life from a different perspective and every perspective is important, because they belong to individuals who create life and are created by life.
