MY MUSES

Sometimes textbooks teach you so much more than just theory and facts.......for example statement that seems like a treasure that i recently read.......
"It requires mental toughness to endure inner pain.We need to plan for the best, be prepared for the worst ,expect surprises but continue to move forward anyway."
One statement but so much depth........and what's surpirsing...the source is an Engineering textbook!!!

Take the part of expecting surprises....ulitmately nothing lasts forever yet life goes on....nothing is constant in life..neither is it meant to be.And we know it but aren't willing to accept it.We know we change constantly.We know people around us change constantly.Yet we fear it.

If our expectations are fulfilled ,we fear that in future when they aren't then we will be so disappointed...and if they aren.t then also we are upset.
We need to stop struggling against life so much....what will be,will be.In today's world there so much inner strife,so many complexities that we forget the meaning of life in it.We arent'n touch with ourselves.The simpler, the better.........less we analyse anything the easier it gets.We tend to make simple situations complex.And forget the simple joys of life....
The past is over..it won't come back..good or bad.And it's ok, either way we learned something from it.The future is not something we control by thinking about it...if something has to happen, it will happen anyway.There is no need to expect anything in life....and that doesn't mean that we stop hoping.....hope is the belief that something good will happen or that things will improve.Whereas expections are the result of something we do .........what we expect as a result of actions.Yes we do get results but they may seem random.Life is a mirror but a distorted one...it reflects all that we give to it but in various forms.We may give kindness and may get hurt from that person in return but that doesn't mean life is unfair.It just means God didnt' choose that particular person to be the source of kindness in our lives.It doesn't make them bad either.


It's all around us...this strange kind of negativity.........2 lines i have heard so many times in life but can never undestand why they should be said
"All good things must come to an end.."...........Well all bad things also come to an end so why point out only about good things?
Another one
"Somethings are too good to be true"

Why this statement?????????
NOTHING is ever too good to be true unless we make it.
People keep saying that they aren't worth it or they dont' deserve what they want but that's never really true..........there nothing that we cant' achieve if we try and if its' achievable and we get it then we obviously deserve it.
Same way...people say they dont' deserve to be loved ,well for that i have answer
"When you are treasured and valued,it doesn't make the people who value you great.......don't be in awe of them...,it doesn't make you great........dont' be too proud....it just makes life great.....love it and accept it.

Nice to read .... must say very deep study.....
Change is a necessary evil like "friction" because if everything is good than we don't value them ... if everything is bad then we can't even value that so the change is necessary but it become evil also when changes don't go in our favour and change our way of thinking, our values and our principles. Everyone knows something bad will happen sometime but we afraid of it but that’s not wrong bcoz it give us motivation to work in a way so that we can be prepared for it and try to avoid it if possible.... past is something which we can't change but it is the only source from where we can learn and future is only time in which we can plan to manage the things we are doing wrong presently..... and if everything goes with our expectation then also we will be depressed with our boring life with all good things and nothing to improve as it is rightly said "need is mother of inventions " so we can also say bad things are the reason for improvement in life ....... if someone says he don't deserve to be loved then he must know that he is not the right person to judge it the good judge will be the other person who is loving or not loving that person ....

hmmm......yours seems an equally deep study!
Again very unique points and yet valid ones also...

"Everyone knows something bad will happen sometime but we afraid of it but that’s not wrong bcoz it give us motivation to work in a way so that we can be prepared for it and try to avoid it if possible"

That part really makes sense yet most people will not have thought of it at all...i hadn't.

And this"bad things are the reason for improvement in life " should quoted for everyone..it gives a such an optimistic view of life...and yet its true...it shows that there is some good in everything.Its enough to be happy if we believe and implement it.
