Life…. well, it is a very funny journey. I have always felt that – ‘There is always more to life, than what meets the Eye’. What I mean by the said statement is that, as we endure this journey christened – LIFE, we come across many people, incidents, conversations, feelings, emotions, gestures; which on the surface might look simple, but deep within them lies a more hidden meaning, perhaps a hidden connection.
Life is indeed a mysterious yet funny journey. But, even the wise cannot see all its ends. It is very difficult for anyone to perhaps fathom the mystery of straight lines and the simplicity of the curves in the design of life. At this juncture, I would like to quote the below lines from the movie ‘Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring”. The conversation takes place between Frodo and Gandalf.
Gandalf to Frodo : “Many that live deserve death, and some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
These words have always helped me to avoid the temptation of judging a person or a situation.
Thus, life is full of such mysteries, events, situations, which might tempt you to fall prey to the authority of passing a judgement. But in such weak moments, I hope, the above stated words of Gandalf will ring in your senses the words of wisdom, which might help you to choose the right path.
Everyone in life is busy… busy fighting their own battles. If you can, then help them. If you cannot, then, let them pass their own way. Show compassion for always remember, what might seem easy for you, might be most difficult for the other person and vice versa.
Choose to live life in the company of Wisdom and try to enjoy the mysteries Life. I hope the above stated lines will help in some degree in achieving the same.
