Life is full of tensions and people keep running here and there. They do not find time to sit and relax. Every time they keep thinking about something or the other. Many of us feel edgy and jittery through out the day. We sometime think – Alas! Cannot life be peaceful!
However, there is flip side to a completely peaceful life. If there is nothing to do in life, it gets dull and drab. However, our restlessness prompts us to do something; it motivates us to move forward. Our restlessness directs us to go for some activities in our life. When we look the life from a short term angle, peaceful life appeals us. However, when we evaluate our life from long term angle, our mind tells us that we could have taken some risks in life and had we taken some ‘risks’ in our life, it would have been different altogether.
Sometimes, we feel that flow of life has stopped. There is nothing new in our life. However, we feel comfortable in the situation, where we are. We stick to our situation and do not want to exert ourselves. One part of our mind says that there should be some change in our life; however, we do not feel like taking risks or entering into new ventures. These kinds of thoughts make us feel disturbed. One part of our mind tells us that we are not ‘zero’; we have ‘something’ in our life and this makes us feel contended. We somehow find peace in our life, in our own way.
We sometimes want to change but without disturbing our peace and this makes us standard, where we are. This way our life remains peaceful and stationary, however, it gets unexciting and uninteresting. Nonetheless, we sometimes get restless with peaceful, calm and cool life and want to come out it. We keep trying to come out of it and sometimes succeed in bringing changes, despite uncertainties in life. You cannot change life if you do not want to make efforts and lie low. So do you make efforts to transform your life or you feel contended the way you are going?
