I still haven’t found what I am looking for…

What I think of Life? Good question.

To me, Life indeed is beautiful – if lived with a sense of purpose, a direction. People claim to be happy and say “we know what we are doing” and “we control our lives”, which actually amuses me. Because, the same set of people claim they are depressed and facing tension. So, how do we verify that we have found our purpose, our direction in life, and it is us, who are controlling life and not vice-versa? But why am I even talking about controlling life? Why don’t we just go with the flow and accept the norm, the obvious.

Ambition, desire, expectations and dreams – tell me, how our life will be without these words? Presence of any of these in our self is sufficient to provide us ability to ask question and put us in a situation of quandary. We wish to change the world, want to make a difference in our/other’s life, want to be famous, want to mint money, want to reach pinnacle in our careers and at the same time, we want to be happy and lead a ‘balanced’ life. I guess, we are so busy thinking about routine life and its problems that we never come out of the sleep and ask ourselves – why am I here? Is that what I wished to do in life? Am I happy doing this? Life is an aggressive striker, we just can’t figure out the score. and when we do, we are too exhausted or entrenched in coming to terms with our daily, routine, purposeless and direction – less life.

Equilibrium, I have been told is an ideal concept! To have the cake and eat it too – seems to be the biggest challenge…

Around me, everybody, including me, is in abeyance, trying to come in terms with what they want. They earn enough money, are at good position in their careers, have good set of friends and partners,  but crib about something that is missing. This missing bit is what puts us in abeyance, makes us believe we are lacking direction, purpose. Is it for real?

I am still searching for an answer…
