Vicious cycle ~


You are an object of misery. Your DNA is made up of hopes and expectations. Hopes that keep your darkness at bay, and expectations that mask your world from seeing light. You are stuck in a world full of dilemmas doomed to love, doomed to expect and doomed to suffer. Freedom for you has become a lost concept. In pursuing your peace, you forget that happiness actually lies in the pursuit itself. There is nothing when - and if - you reach there wherever you are going. Destination is a myth. You walk and you are not happy because you want a bicycle. When you get a bicycle you are not happy because you want a motorbike. When you have a motorbike, you want a car. When you have a car, and you are stuck in traffic jam, you think bicycle was better. Life revolves around one long miserable vicious cycle. Your yesterdays are laughing on your wasted todays

wow.. did u write this, really? the way it's told is so familiar yet so fresh.. n indeed "destination is a myth".. coz it keeps on changing.. if we had jus one destination,jus one goal to reach, then the zest for life would have gotten over the day we reached it. but instead, the smart mind keeps on changing the destinations..n it remains a myth..

Aadii said...

I believe this sounds familiar because papaji used to tell this similar story :)

it reminded me of the famous dialogue from dark knight:"I am like a dog who loves chasing cars but doesn't know what to do when he catches one "(not exactly the same words:)

Nakul, Don't worry. Every dog has his day. ;)

I am marveling at how simply you captured the complexity of today's times. Its not like I hadn't wondered this before but this piece made me sit up and read it again and again and again .. I was fascinated. A masterpiece. I will keep coming back to read it.

Destination is a myth. Absolutely true. Ispe ek sher arz karti hu.... Raaste kahan khatam hote hain zindagi ke safar me...Manzil to wahi hai jahan khwaishein tham jaayen...
