I least expected to land up as a pilot after having spent 6 years in IIT – Destiny has its own twists and turns!
My situation was bad that time, I couldn’t help ditching her – Probably we were not destined to be!
I was averse to hospital all my life. Strangely, I met my husband for the first time in a hospital, when I was forced to accompany my friend to that hospital. – I should say it was all destiny’s play that brought me there!
If I hadn’t taken that offer 4 years before, I wouldn’t have missed him in my life, also I couldn’t have stood this high in my career at this young age -Destiny gave me one and took off another !
I’ve been often listening to such statements lately and this post is a direct reflection of my recent chats and conversations with those people mostly in their late 20s and early 30s.
I find a unique importance about this period in life. All through the years, you run, play, laugh, cry, shout, explode – in matters of study, work and relationships and then there comes a point:
When you know certain things were never in your hands – never!
When you know every laugh, every cry, every shout has to come to end – one day!
When you know your days have to and will move on – no matter what!
When you know it’s all about getting over and starting all over – again and again!
When you know it’s only time that can unveil your – destiny!
Amongst the 50 odd paintings I’ve made, there was one common theme I often was fond of doing again and again. A long road with trees on both sides – as what you can see from this collage above of my paintings done during the various phases of my life spanning from school days to the recent times – Perhaps a subconscious picturization of my life’s journey! I couldn’t think of any picture fitting better than this one here 🙂
Some of us plan for something ahead, fix a time frame to acheive something, work hard to get to their desired destination – be it a relationship, salary package, power or position – and the outcome matches exactly the level of effort we’ve put into it. Yet, for some of us, no matter what and how we try, there’s always a ‘No entry’ pop-up in front of all our plans.
Sometimes we receive a magic parcel on our hands of what we’ve been praying for and at other times the praying hands remain empty no matter how hard the praying lips try.
There are times when we know what we want, what to focus and there are other times we have no clue of where to go.
Some of us, though we get to our target, all that has remained at the end might be only frustration. And there are some of us who has never ever got what we desired, yet there remains a fulfillment from within.
Some of us believe in ‘man creates his own destiny’. Some of us believe in ‘man has no control over his destiny’ and yet others believe in neither. There are chances that the people who follow the first, fail to create their destiny and equal possibility for the latter to control their life paths.
These confusing lines were just to reiterate the ‘n’ possibilities of permutations and combinations of life occurences 😉
Yes, coming back to the late 20s to the early 30s – I find people beginning to vaguely introspect for a pattern in their journeys when they reach this phase. And what remains to most of them is uncertainty that makes them scream this way:
“If all that we plan perfectly, gets missed out perfectly, then can somebody please tell us how the bloody hell life operates?”
Don’t expect too much out of my stupid little brain. It doesn’t have an answer either 😦 I only wanted to tell you all that if life has ever prompted you to yell out this way, then please feel good that you are not alone. I see increasing number of people in the recent times trying hard to decode the destiny codes laid out for humans. If the myth about the evolution of human consciousness by the year 2012 becomes a reality, probably we might find some clues about where we are going.
Discussions, questions and opinions are highly appreciated (if you’ve understood so far what the hell this stupid little brain was buck-bucking) 😆
