Each moment, as we live it, is the only reality. So, the past which has passed and the future which shall follow are no more than fleeting dreams. An individual who relishes the present moment, finds a space to sit and contemplate. To him/her the mystery of how and why people behave the way they do, unfolds itself. People can fool the world into believing their persona, but to the one who lives in the moment perceives each gesture, expression, posture and hence, knows the truth.
What differentiates such person from the rest of the world? It is his/her determination to behold each moment as it comes.
Experience lies in the mind of the one who ponders. The meaning of experience is not to mindlessly do numerous things throughout life but to feel and contemplate over those numerous experiences at the same time. In our relation with others, it often happens that we blame other people for the conflicts but the moment we embark on the journey of contemplation, we realise our flaws and mistakes. In life, it is paramount to keep your mind open, let the experiences in and reflect upon them. A closed mind is a sign of a numb mind.
An open-minded person stays grounded to his/her reality. This grip on reality enables people to accept that the essence of who you are is never lost. Even though one goes to the length of putting on a deceptive appearance, in the end, his/her true self shall reveal itself like the sun does even while hidden in the cluster of clouds. However, it is in our hands to make the best use of our essence to reach our dreams. If you were to aim for the moon then you would at least ascertain to have the right amount of resources within your reach to do so. Similarly, if you want to achieve considerable success then you should make the best use of all the suitable qualities and skills within you. If you constantly compare yourself and eye on other people’s success then you will fail to reach “your best”. Therefore, get inspired not from what people have achieved, rather from how they have achieved it.
The key to be the best version of yourself is to patiently overcome the obstacles on the path and learn from them. The constant self-doubt in the difficult times will block your path to success. Nothing good in this world can be achieved with haste, every journey is a process and the one we take to achieve our goals is the most important one. There are no side steps to experience and success, especially the ones gained by fair means. Hence, life has to be lived the way it comes. Your devotion to it will open up the ultimate path towards your aspirations.
