Nowadays, lives of people are so busy. No one has the time to think anything. Everyone is busy in following the usual routine of life for their livelihood. But in these busy circumstances, everyone has forgotten the most important aspect which is the meaning of life. The purpose of life may not be earning only money to have some food or other things to fulfill one’s needs. There must be something beyond it. Now it’s time to ask a question from ourselves that what the meaning of life is. Life is something which is beyond our knowledge and expectations. One cannot control it but can only live it.
Way of Living
Life flows with time. Just like time, it also never stops. As it flows continuously, one cannot control it. One can only give a direction to its flow. Now it’s on you that in which direction you want your life to go. It means the selection of your destination will decide the future of your life. Now the question is what is the difference between controlling the life and giving direction to it? The answer is quite interesting. In case we are controlling our lives, we will have the ultimate control over every single event happening in our lives which is practically not possible at all. But when we are giving direction to it, we are actually organizing our lives in a particular way to reach a particular destination with the chances of happening of uncertain events too. So as we can only give our lives a particular direction, there are still chances of happening of uncertain events for which we must be prepared in advance.
Joseph Campbell in one of his famous life quotes, said, “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”
Don’t ever try to control your life. Just give it a direction through which it will reach its destination. And the most important aspect is always be prepared for the uncertain events of life in advance because no one can get rid of it but everyone has to face it. This is the actual way of living.
