When we look at Life, or let’s call it our life alone, we see that nothing is very much what we estimated of it or what we want it to be. There would always be a host of circumstances and situations that become a part of our daily routine which we find extremely difficult to cope with and even more difficult to understand.
We often find ourselves at cross roads with little or no solutions to our grievances. Often we consider ourselves lucky whenever we find resolutions to challenges and there are times when we reach the brink of our limits and sometimes take extreme steps.
We are humans and such decisions are inevitable but we should realize that it’s just one life that we have and in whatever the situation is’ Remember bad times never last forever” and it is essential that we hold on and never give up on our inner self. The will to go on should always be stronger than a negative situation that could be driving you insane….
We are far more luckier than a million others who live happy lives in wheelchairs, Hospital Beds and as Handicapped individuals. We have everything yet are unhappy about that Promotion, that overseas holiday, that health Ailment….If these are our troubles , then I wonder what real troubles are like….
I imagine a world recreated without the flaws that we have compromised for and have adjusted to , living within the hostile environment as thou, it’s the best life we bargained for.
I would happily trod back a thousand years to the times of the wise men, when we lived without anything much, but were amazingly happy. Where we toiled from dawn to dusk in the fields but took pride in relishing a simple meal placed before us.
When we spent precious moments with our loved ones and shared relationships that we treasured for a lifetime.
When we sat and had long talks about our childhood and cherished the memories as thou we still were children…
For these are the times that we live in ,far from what we want and wishing for the new life…
When I look at this carving, it just reminds me of the patience man may have had to painstakingly carved this beautiful sculpture. What could it have taken ! Weeks, Maybe months, maybe even years. All done hundreds of years ago without any modern tools or machinery. An artwork of mankind that would probably last a few hundred of years more.
I took this picture with one intention in mind. To remind myself of the determination of a civilization that survived for hundreds of years..
Desire, ignorance, and inequality—this is the trinity of bondage.
We must have friendship for all; we must be merciful toward those that are in misery; when people are happy, we ought to be happy; and to the wicked we must be indifferent. These attitudes will make the mind peaceful.
