You must have heard so many people saying that live a life of your own. Live in present moment and forget about what has happened or about to happen. This theory is prevalent and wisely oriented but do you think a normal person with all kinds of financial and social pressures can easily get on that path. You are living in a bitter world of so-called wisdom of attaining new heights of glory every day. Then how can you move in a path that is not defined and not possible for normal circumstances.
I have seen all those daily wage labours sleeping a death-like sleep over footpaths and on grassy green belts. But who is able to pass a judgement that they are living in just present moment. They have to fight the whole next day for bread of their own and their loved ones. So, they are too tired and want to let their muscles and body relax for few hours in a real sense. Its sounds too clichéd to say that human soul can experience Real Peace if it is mouthful of routine life chores. There is always a dual way to look at the reality of any situation. I am not asking you to stop all efforts to alienate yourself form tortures and regrets of past and worries of future. All my concern is that you can’t put a full-stop over actual factual life that you are facing with the moment you open your eyes in morning.
How many people can think in a way as Confucius, who said to his disciple one morning “ I saw a dream and I was a brightly coloured butterfly in that hovering over different flowers…now I am wondering if that was my real self and being human is a mere dream”. You can elevate your soul but not by running behind worldly desires and obsessions. You are born to exist beyond this cage like body! Your soul is permanent and will meet permanence. So, it’s the right time to ponder upon and “Stay Awakened”. You have to find way to reduce pure worldly pressures and to get solace in the company of people who are able to see in other dimension…means on spiritual journey leading the Ultimate Truth!!!
