So I was in in my secondary and I read this poem by Shakespeare “All the world’s a stage” which gives a brief description of stages of life one has to go through. There is more to this I realised way after but for now I am just relating things.
For me my life has been a closed box(no restrictions) between two pressure forces on the either side one being the ‘ I factor’ and other being the ‘you’ which is ‘me’ the significant other. Both the factors have heavy force but there is but inside the box roaming that is the ‘ soul’. The reality is the heavier force pushes life towards its path with other lighter force constantly making feel its presence, but is it weak on the box? Now that depends on the box because it is Life.
When life moves on, things are done on its way creating other forces pushing it too but the initial heavier force must be the heaviest, which makes Personality.
All the way when life goes these forces create a process of cleansing or dirtying the soul until it reaches the destination, the end. We all make it till here and that is the ultimate truth but what matters is what do we do with ourselves in this span of time, what Karma or deeds. And Karma is a result of all of the doings.
Deeds are the vacuum cleaner or a dumper to one’s soul. That is the the aim. And when does a soul become dirtier? When you perform deeds knowing they are wrong leaving spots on the clean soul when it came into the mortal world. There are still other numerous ways to options to pick and apply to clean our soul. This is one of the easiest and straight. What mostly blocks the way of cleansing are Mistakes. I call it blocked because barriers can be overstepped by filling the box with guilt.
Mistakes are a major factor in blocking ways but a major factor in learning too. It also greatly lies at the level a mistake is made . Small mistakes can be turned right but they can lead to big ones too. But the big remain big and can be only be improved to get faded. The quality differs.
When mistakes are ignored they practically destroy the person later. And even after improving the big mistake the small thorns keep pricking because of the delay. We can always control ourselves and being humans we tend to make mistakes but one should know how to mend it after committing.
Following one’s heart has a deeper meaning. That does not mean ignoring brain which leads to drain. These two are parallels and we can always choose one, either, or neither but following one parallel is like moving your life train on one track line which results in crashing. Heart is beautiful, heart gives and takes pleasures for you but heart is easily dragged and cannot be a leader everytime. Thus, it needs brain to move ahead which makes a strong personality.
Otherwise, life is full of surprises or maybe you need to give yourself some of them but playing roles of life with hold on certain self-policies or ethics which is complicated but the best way to control hyperactiveness. Know yourself. Know where are we going. Know what path is factor pushing your box. Just don’t reach the destination be the destination so you know in your last moments you were worth the ill-fated world and made it till here. You left your footprint there before the soul leaves the box. Let the soul go further clean and free.
