Deify The Mind

Don’t Mess With The Mind

Just Like The Tides October 25, 2006

Among the billions of people present in the world, we are still unique. There are some traits, some facets in us which make us who we are. Seems amazing to me sometimes how much variation there can be. Yet, there are some who don’t seem to understand it at all. The beauty of life is not to be the best in it, but to live it the fullest because really, we only get one chance.

Rejection, failure, incompetence et al are all the various phases of the same thing, they are all synonyms of an inferior person. I have had a lot of failures in my life but I have always thought that no matter what anyone says, I will do what I want to. It seems stupid tough, that I follow only myself but just think about it. Is that really so conceited?

I really don’t understand why it is that some people cannot just accept their failures and walk on. Why are they always stuck in the same moment, the same memory? Ridicule is the best form of self improvement. I can still remember the feeling of satisfaction when I showed all the “wise guys” that I was the best in something. I guess it’s all in the mind.

Take a look around, how many of us really do achieve all we want? Amongst all the beggars, hobos and unemployed we are born to people who can do something to stray us away from the same fate. We hold the key to our own success, but it really depends on what your idea of success really is. You could think that success is merely getting praise, attention and being superior to everyone else, but then would you ever feel satisfied with yourself. There will always be someone better.

The real flaw of such thought is that our happiness becomes dependent on an external factor, the most unpredictable one, in fact. I am talking about our own human race. We are fickle minded, and anyone who depends on us for our own success is really headed for the same fate, an unknown future. It may very well be that he/she could be a super hit but is it really that likely? I think not.

Dreams are the real keys to success. Success is not a physical thing, it’s just a state of mind, something we have to live with but can’t live without. Forget everyone else, if the thing you do makes you happy, then do it but always remember, forget everything else, everything…

 

So What Do You Do? October 24, 2006

This life is a complex mixture of troubles, heartaches, death and birth. Within this cycle, people manage to fill it up with troubles, some of which can really break down any normal person. So then, I ask, what will you do if such a thing were to happen in your life?

It seems really difficult to understand, at least for me though, how can one life have more problems than there are days. I don’t mean only the important stuff life making marriage commitments but everything, all facets of life. I really do hate it when people underplay childrens’ problems but that is a topic for a later time.

Running has always been the panacea for all problems. Running away is just so easy to do in the face of a problem that I doubt that it has never occurred in a normal persons mind, no matter how powerful or strong he may be. The answers are not so easy to find, and searching is very difficult to do.

Ultimately, we (or more specifically, me) find solace in the only thing we have left. For me, it’s my parents. I find solace, comfort and happiness within their presence. I am lucky to have them in the first place, but there are those who have nothing, no one to comfort them. Their lives go on, forgetting their previous problems moving on to the next. It takes real courage to face them alone but for some reason, we have become weaker.

I don’t have the courage to face my own problems sometimes. I know that they are they for a reason, but without knowing why I can’t answer them. But coming back to the topic, what do you do when it all comes down on you. Well, I can say for all sure that, in the face of all my problems, I learn to deal with them, by myself, with my own courage. After all, isn’t that what the “Creator” wants from us?

 

Running Away October 22, 2006

“It’s only when you have seen death can you truly understand life”

One of my favorite quotes, from the book Frankenstein. In the beginning, this quote didn’t mean much more to me than the fact that it was completely fictitious and had no bearing in real life. After all, who among us can actually experience death and live to tell the tale. However, as I grew older I realized that there was much more meaning in those words than I had previously thought.

As far as I am concerned, these words do explain much of life to me. In order to know what is good, you have to know what is bad. This is a whole and complete fact. I cannot know what to believe, unless I experience everything. Prejudice is the enemy of knowledge. Something which is akin to a flame burning down a beautiful city.

I would’ve never known that fighting or violence is a bad thing unless I was a “bad ass” myself. Not that I condone such actions, I am trying to make a point. I would’ve have never known that being good, or atleast trying to be good, is the most important thing for a human. Although people may disagree, I don’t care.

In order to find the perfect partner, friend or mate, we devote our whole lives, when, according to me there is only one criteria. All I want is to know a person who has experienced all the evil, hatred and the complete darkness in this world and yet has decided to be good, wholeheartedly. All else is irrelevant. Saying so, I have narrowed down the results to a bare minimum but does it matter? As long as such people exist, we will see this world grow.

 

Death: The Leveler October 8, 2006

Filed under: Advice,Happenings of Life,My Philosophy — Master Cheif @ 12:37 pm

I have been thinking recently, and it struck me, that to most people death is nothing but an escape. Suicide is not only a means to end ones life but also it acts a vent for ones emotions. Even I have sometimes felt so much grief in my life that I have wished to end it. To me, again it was nothing more than an escape, a release hatch for my emotions.

I guess, we really do underestimate death. In actuality, I believe that death is like an adventure. One that each one of us explore it for ourselves, perhaps enjoy it or be sucked into a vortex of hate and pain, yet it still is an adventure. I do not know if there is a heaven or hell however, at least we all know for sure that death is a very real thing.

The beauty of death lies in the fact that it is inevitable, we may prolong it but it always comes. Man’s continued struggle with this problem has made him foolish, perhaps even arrogant in a way. Deep down inside we are all control freaks and nothing would make us happier that to be able to control the world’s most powerful force, nature itself.

Death comes swift and sure. It does its deed and lets us deal with it. Considering it a scapegoat for our problems would be more than sufficient. We put so much faith in death for answering our problems that all the physiologists in the world are considered useless. Death is far reaching and has enormous hands.

Within the reams of our worlds, death is nothing but something to look forward to. Without death, there is nothing more to expect in our lives. It is the dead end, the omega of our lives. Considering suicide, that is, treating death like a scapegoat is merely an insult to its abilities. We have to live with our problems because we really get one life, it that goes there are no more second chances.
