A walk with my shadow….

At every turn in life, we see things which can relate to our practical lifestyles. Due to our failure to observe and think deeply, most of the times we missed out the important elements that nature is providing us in our day to day lives. Frugality in observation and thinking can render us paralyzed throughout life. Be generous in observation and thinking styles, so that these two processes may help to stimulate the production of neurons, leading to a better capacity to think, evaluate, discriminate and remember things.

Life flows generously like a stream, which then turns into a river to merge with the ocean. This is a wonderful part of nature. But, we human have become selfishly entangled in our own personal world, sometimes we become selfishly very personal, to the extent we can’t even tolerate our own mind attempting to try something new. Confined within the walls of selfishness, most of the moments in our lives, are spent in routinely guided schedules. We get up in the morning. We have breakfast. We go to work. We grumble. We backbite. We gossip. We worry. We come back from work. We have tea. We watch TV. We go for leisurely activities. We come back again. We take bath. We socialize. We watch TV. We read. We listen to songs. We have dinner. We go online. We chat. We reply e-mails. We write something. We yawn. We go to sleep. We go on dreaming. We do all these to please our own mind. Huh!!! What a routine list we have here.

In our attempt to lead a good life, quiet often, we tend to ignore the true meanings of life and happenings around us. When a tragedy occurs, we either blame all those around us or end up consoling our own self and live in an artificially accepted satisfaction. Too much of anything can become very unhealthy. Too less of everything too can become fatal. Moderation is the secret.

This life, I would say is a walk with shadow, because most of the time nature walks with us, though we walk far form our conscience. Let us together put own steps forward for a fruitful and generous march in this life. Lets take as many people as we can along with us and head towards betterment. Together.

  1. I would have to say that 70% of the wee bit of wisdom I have gained comes from observing nature and the rest from observing people and their reactions. Nature has been a constant companion for as long as I can remember - which these days is sometimes not very long :)

  2. too. I agree with you.Thank you.

  3. 'Moderation is the secret'. Well said.
