The Journey called Life... (Part 1 : Storytellers)

The Journey called Life...

1. Storytellers

Ever since we were born we have been travalling on a journey that will take us our whole life to be able to reach the end of it, a journey that we all called our lives. And each of everyone of will have lots of our very own unigue story to tell others. A unique story that no others will have the exact same experience as us.

some of us will have stories that will tell stories that will have a happy ending, some sad ending...some want to hide from it,some will want to reveal them to the whole wide world. some will have be very eventful, some will be rather dull...that's the nature of life, it can't be predicted, not even the so-called fortune tellers.

Behind these stories are people who have lived the times which had come to be the past..some will look forward to what's in the future, some will be stuck in their past, and a little of them will be living in the present, enjoying every breath they take, in and out. some will have guides that will guide them to the right path and enjoyed the fruits of their labour, some will have strayed from the path and had to suffer the consequences...

so what is it that all of us are travelling on now?? This journey is to be named life and the only place we are standing or should i say walking on shall be the present, what is in front of us will be the future and what is behind us will be the past...and it's like travelling through a series of doors that can only be opened in one way and not the other.

Regret shall be of no use in this and every life, what is in the past is in the past, it's above us in the slope now, and there shall be no way for us to travel back and repair the damage. The damage is done for now, and what we can do is to move on with the journey.

when we do come to a junction, often we are too afraid to choose what is best for us and let others do the choosing for us. If all turns well we'll keep relying on the person to keep choosing for us, if everything goes wrong, we blame the poor one for bringing us misery. If we had looked deep into our hearts and minds, we'll have the answers ready for everything, and there shall be no need to let other people make the choice for us. If it proves to be wrong then take note of it and move on with life, there are no need to stay there and weep. If it proves to be correct then also take note of it and keep moving forward, no need to celebrate for years and years, that will constitute as standing still too.

the road in front of us are always covered by a very thick fog, we can never ever see for sure what will happen if we keep moving on, neither can we see what's behind us as well. do we stay there and keep wondering in which direction we should be going? or take the risk and move on forward and see what is in store for us? Of course, our hearts will be our reliable guide as always..perhaps we can stop for a while and listen to what it have to say...most of us are so diluted be illusions that we are very afraid to see what is really good for us, because our visions are clouded by the thick fog. Look deep into your heart and let if guide you to the correct path, the fog will eventually disappear and all will be clear for you.

of every moment we are both dying into the past and being born into the future, what we really have is one and the only one, which is the present. can we actually enjoy every breath of air that we are breathing, when we can do that, then life will be so does not need to accumulate lots and lots to be happy, all that is needed is only to live at the moment, enjoying whatever we are doing now, not worrying about what's in the part nor the future...

and of course, that will include letting go when it's time to do so, most of us are holding on to something, hoping things will go our way..some will keep holding on to things even though they are of no more use, some keep chaining themselves to their past..some fell slaves to what's going to (or perhaps will never come) happen. some keep clasping to what that is no more theirs, some kept holding on to the hope that the good times soon even though they are doing nothing but keep hoping. learn to let go of anything when it's time, and feel the joy of doing so, it's just being able to breathe fresh air after being kept in a jail with no windows for the last 100 years...

remember that nothing is permeanant over here, everything will change no matter matter how much we wanted them to stay the same forever. change is imminent no matter what and all we have to do is to accept it and move point crying over what we had lost, for every lost we gain something else. we may not what we had gained by losing something but do be patient for a while, not everything can be clearly seen the first time around.

Life is all about patience,if we are can be patient in every situation and observe carefully, life can be very bad or very sweet But it all depends on how you would choose to look at it. If you choose to look at the world with gloomy eyes, then the world will be gloomy all the time,no matter how much you try to entertain yourself. If you choose to look at the world with a beautiful outlook, thethe world will be beautiful no matter how ulgy to others it is. Whether you want to live a happy or sad life depends on what you choose. Now the question to you all,how would you look at the world? What kind of story are you going to tell the others later on? Should it be a happy or sad? It's all up to you to do the choosing.
