What is sacred to you? I read this word in HPMOR recently and it kind of stuck with me. I love this word.
I have been going around asking my friends what they deem sacred and it came as a surprise to me that people were astonished and couldn’t think of things on hearing that word. It saddens me 😦
Now, if I take it on me to come up with things which pop into my mind when I think of the word SACRED then I will also be surprised myself. But on further thinking, I can think of READING A MEANINGFUL LINE/PARAGRAPH IN A BOOK tops the list ❤
Lately, I read STUPIDITY IS DOING THE SAME THING AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT and I was left aghast at how perfectly it was written.
I feel sad that we have lost touch with our soul. I fell sad that we don’t know WHO WE ARE? I feel sad that we end up all our life running after things that won’t matter ever. I feel sad that temporary pleasure is all that matters to us. I feel sad just because I haven’t felt sad for a long time. I feel sad because feeling sad is all I can do as of now.
But what can we do? What can I do? I am sad and devastated. But then a ray of hope comes thinking about those times when many of my friends asked me WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF OUR LIFE? WHY DO OUR SOUL CHANGES BODIES EVEN AFTER DEATH BUT ITSELF DOESN’T DIE? WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLE LOVE TEMPORARY PLEASURE MORE? and I feel happy because we ask the right question. Above are the right questions. I admit that I don’t have answers to it. I admit that most answers won’t make me feel satisfied. I admit that I am happy that the questions are correct and someday we’ll get the correct answers.
It might be so that the time will be gone and it’ll be late. That’s okay, but, we would have definitely reached our destination even being late. It’s all about timing, I understand, but there’s no roadmap, no help, no guidance, no successful history, and we discover successfully WHO WE ARE? WHAT HAPPINESS MEANS TO US? WHAT IS URGENT AND WHAT IS IMPORTANT? WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE FOR THE FUTURE GENERATION? If we discover some of these, we’re the winners, maybe LATE WINNERS, but still smiling ❤
P.S.: As always, I don’t think my post makes sense much but such confused is my way of thinking now. To clear it all, to become #sacred again, I am going for a trek this weekend to Kodachadri, Shimoga. Will post the pics ❤ If you have not already, do subscribe to my YouTube channel, Darshith Badiyani.
