Life

How do you know…

…if the path you have chosen in life is the right one?

…if the decision you make will lead to something positive?

…if the relationship you are in will work out?

…if the friends that you have will be with you a decade later?

…if the words you say will ever have an impact on another?

…if he or she is ‘the one’?

…if the job you are in is the one to take you to where you want to be?

…if you are in love?

…if compromising will get you what you want?

…what life has in store for you?

…what challenges lie ahead?

…if this is the life you actually want?

…if you are living life to the fullest?

…what people really think of you?

…if any of the decisions you make will be the ‘right’ one?

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    If the universe was created by a supreme being then where did the supreme being come from ? 
    if the universe was NOT created by a supreme being and is just a product of the laws of physics , then where did the laws of physics come from ?

    why is yellow yellow ?, we know how our eyes interpret yellow, but why is it yellow ?

    why does anything happen ? why does is the point to life ? we know how we came into existence but whats the point to existence  itself ?.

    🙂 … I believe there is such a thing as a stupid question, and the ones that I have mentioned above are perfect examples for it. Its what religion uses as an excuse to promote dogma. Its great to question everything but I think at some point you have to stop and realize some questions don’t have answers.

    Do let me know if you figure out answers to these questions 🙂

    On a different note (but not totally), I am currently reading this book – The Interrogative Mood – that is made up of only questions. Each sentence in that book is a question (some of them very thought provoking). And reading this post somehow made me think of that 😀

    Not all of what you’ve asked are stupid questions Jake…I think there are several people who do question the point of life or their existence on the planet. When I have time to reflect (Which is very rare!) I wonder about it too…

    But you are right…while we question everything, maybe there is a point we need to stop. And I for one, would really like my mind to do that sometimes! I’m tired of all the questions and indecisiveness and worries it poses…

    I was afraid of that Bikram! The premise of worry is about lack of control and lack of predictability. And I totally agree with you when you say that if things don’t work out the way we want, it doesn’t mean it’s wrong. I guess I should have said acceptable versus unacceptable.

    That’s the problem isn’t it Shilpa…that the answers are only known in time and after we’ve lived through them. Sigh. I think I’d give anything to know the answers to those right now…

    That’s the problem though Ekta…that we don’t know the answers until we experience it! :S Unfortunately sometimes, it’s hard to relish those moments that are so filled with anxiety…

    Life is all about not knowing and yet doing the things we do . Why do we need a motivation or reason to do something or ,  assurance of your action’s success .   Do it because it makes you happy NOW , in this moment . Enjoy the delicious ambiguity =)

    I wish had words of wisdom, but I don’t. I guess all I can say is, it happens to all of us at some point. I wrote this post – 
    http://legally-alien.blogspot.com/2010/07/life-question-mark.html when I was having a similar sort of “crisis”. And I think at the end of it, you don’t really “know” but just have faith in yourself and know you did the best you could.

    Even I’ve been hounded by these questions since over a month… I’ve got nowhere close to the answers… it feels like hanging in mid-air wondering what wind will blow you, and from which direction. Sighhh, time… that’s the only factor to get us near some answers, though I doubt if all our questions will be ever answered, because there will  always be a new question added to the list as we age.

    Only when the present critical period is over, all the pieces of puzzle fall in place and we can see in stark clarity the meaning of it all. In retrospect, all things appear clear and make sense one way or the other. Am I making any sense?

    You make perfect sense Nirali when you say do something because it makes you happy NOW. However, me being a bit neurotic, still needs something about the future…some guarantee almost. I just wish I could get out of my own head for a while! 😛

    Aaaaah finally we disagree …. a good opportunity to fight . 
    As far as I am concerned , ALL the questions I asked are stupid physc, let me tell you why. Lets take the question of life for example, whats the point to life is probably the most important question humanity has every asked. The problem is its a question that very well might not have an answer, reminds me of this time when my dad asked me why a keyboard is called a keyboard, my answer was “well, because its a board with keys on it”, he went on to ask but why name it keyboard, why not typeboard . I was like “its just a name, you call it fred or bambi if you want to, whats the big deal”.  Its just like that, human beings have this inherent nature to question things which is good, its got us where we are but it also gave us BS like religion and astrology.

    I’m not saying you shouldn’t question things, just that sometimes its best not to think about the what ifs , they are just to product of mind’s yearning for more.

    We do disagree Jake! 😀 I guess the way I see it is that even if a question doesn’t have an answer, doesn’t mean we can’t ask it! It’s different if we dwell on the what ifs…that I understand is a way of getting stuck in a rut…but asking questions even when we may be aware there aren’t necessarily answers don’t make them stupid. Even with religion  and astrology…if we didn’t ask questions, we’d all probably be like those people who get brainwashed and part of cults!
