A note on life....
My cousin (10) asked me last summer why do we live if all die. She didn't understand why everyone was afraid of dieing as we all die eventually. I obviously could not give her the answer I wished for, so I decided to settle down for ..."because it's fun". In that particular moment, I was quiet embarrassed about my answer and trying to calm me down by saying that "in few years I will tell her the truth (whatever that was)". But, then (some months after) I realized that I was not wrong at all. Yes, life is fun!
I read on a blog post a very useful advice which stated that whenever you feel angry or upset just imagine you are upon a mountain and you see yourself from above. Then you will regain your peace. Life is just a game. A game in which we are all creators and players, but the former we never acknowledge. It's indeed fun to see yourself from above and have a laugh or two on your absolute innocence and foolishness.
I have heard so many times people wanting to change the world, but heard just one or maybe two saying they want to change. Life is fun, but is not to be changed. It's you and me who has to change. People blame Gods, governments, aliens (sometimes), they go to any extreme that seems close to pick on. Sadly, the closest responsible for any damage this world has suffered, is YOU! You that decided not to dedicate a minute of your day TO YOURSELF. Life is YOU and YOU are FUNNY! Funny because with our potential, we overlook our inner thoughts, we crave for material comfort, we ignore what does not affect us, we are sad for others, but never ourselves,
I am sad, for me and for others. This does not make me better, it just makes me more understanding. My sad is about the children in Africa, India and all over the world that starve to death...and I am doing nothing. This is my pain....how can I help myself to help others?
