What is the purpose of someone’s life? What is one’s destiny?
I guess everything in our life boils to one fact, i.e., how to be content and be loved. The feeling of being loved by someone is very comforting, which gives our life more meaning and purpose. To live our life in the presence of someone who loves us, someone who appreciates for what we are, someone who loves our closeness, someone who is our best friend, gives us the confidence as well as the conviction to walk courageously in the obscure path of life. There are many advantages of this feeling of being loved, but I am not going to talk about that. My question is how to survive when we’re lonely; how to console our soul that someone, somewhere loves us when we are in dire need to hear the three magic words, I love you; how to get that confidence to get up on our feet and live our life as never before; how to be content and peaceful when everything goes haywire, precisely speaking, how to live in the moment.
I have been thinking about this for a long time and I have come to the conclusion that is quite simple, not the expect anything. When we have expectations, our desire grows. And when some of our desires remain unfulfilled, we plunge ourselves into the abyss of darkness, which only results in depression and degradation of our own self. We project those desires as if they are the only one that matters in our life and we want to get them fulfilled by any means and in this process lose to appreciate the many wonderful things which are given to us needlessly. We forget to show gratitude to the universe for providing this beautiful life. We take the love of others for granted, which has been given to us and concentrate only on that person whom we are attracted to. Most importantly, we forget to love ourselves and give importance to that other self.
