Wonder World

I wonder…ya I know I do think a lot…but is there any thing wrong in that? Why do we tend to ignore things?

All of us have a perfect world build inside us and we want to live up to that. Well sounds so very simple rite? Well the twist comes in when you realize that your perfect world is no where near to the real world and above all the different perfect worlds, nourished within them, by different people, are soooo very different. Wow the life is so very simple isn’t it?

And then you start fighting, for what…well you really don’t know. May be you fight to match your perfect world to the real world to the best you can. More you realize the unrealistic nature of your perfection, more you compromise. Well that’s practicality. Isn’t it? Hmmm… then again you start with the new zest to fit in your, now modified, still perfect, world to the real world, and again you come across another not so real aspect of your “dream to be made real” world and you modify that. Well you have to do that if you need to survive.

So now look what do you come to accept in the end. The actual “real world”, with traces of your dream world scattered here and there in it, which you cannot pull together. You think you are happy…coz you are in the illusion that it is what you wanted…it is on your conditions but the truth is not that way.

Well I am not saying that one should not fight for their dreams or one should accept the world as it is. I am just wondering, why we human beings, the so called intellects, lie to ourselves. Why do we compromise on our, thought to be, perfect life. All I believe is “Perfect things are difficult to get, true. But you force yourself to think that they are unrealistic, only when you are actually tired of fighting for it and you yourself are ready to compromise, forgetting the whole aim of your struggle.”

I Feel Free

Ya I don't know what is about this novel "Fountain Head " by Ayn Rand...don't really remember how many times have I read it...its simply awsome...

Well the whole novel is a masterpiece but there is this statement i really love. It goes as:
"If I found a job, a project, an idea or a person I wanted--I'd have to depend on the whole world. Everything has strings leading to everything else. We're all so tied together. We're all in a net, the net is waiting, and we're pushed into it by one single desire. You want a thing and it's precious to you. Do you know who is standing ready to tear it out of your hands? You can't know, it may be so involved and so far away, but someone is ready, and you're afraid of them all. And you cringe and you crawl and you beg and you accept them--just so they'll let you keep it. And look at whom you come to accept. "

Ah man I feel am free.
