Most of us treat our lives (and expect all others to clone us) as show pieces, which are daily dusted & kept glossy in a glass-front almirah to look appreciable for the onlookers. All of us have a natural craving in gratification from others and desire to be liked. In truth life is an experience - an experience for oneself, rather than a picturesque view for others. It is to be used, even if it gets little dusty. I genuinely believe that very neat, clean and glossy lives are unused ones, wasted for others, rather than lived for oneself.
Experiencing life and all the colourful and dark shades of it is as spontaneous & natural as thorns and roses. And it is worthwhile to experience all seasons and shades of life. There is nothing more or less to life than experiencing it. No undercurrents, little reason, no spirituality or a call of the divine - experiencing life is like the lick of an ice cream and touch of burning hot green chilli pakoda on one's tongue - many a times extreme and even painful experiences, but ones that make one feel aware and alive. Compare two humans - one of whom is normally while other is born blind, deaf, dumb and lacking arms and taste. The experiences of such a human being will be devoid of any external stimuli as the aforementioned 5 are the only senses that provide stimuli from external world. It is apparent that the normal person will know more about life than the one without senses. So one has to be delighted and happy that one has all the five senses to experience the world. And feel it thoroughly. Till one does not end up taking irrevocable actions dust and rebellion and goof ups are all fine. Till one can feel life within or on the skin.
I stand by everyone in complete solidarity, compassion and understanding, who have goofed up revocably, had failures, bit the dust, and are still loving, enjoying and experiencing this limited one time message session called life. So do not colour all that has happened or is happening to you in good or bad shades. Heaven and hell are not in physical but only psychological existence - in our minds. All of it are mere experiences and one has the will to reverse one's state, any moment one desires and decides. All one needs to do is - rise 10 feet above oneself to see yourself as an actor, an experiencer of life, rather than being the one, who is inside it (life) struggling to be the showpiece in the almirah!
