Although the word “life” is a short word itself, I believe it hides an adventure in it. This is such a word that when we try to understand the meaning of it, we can only be aware of just a small faction of it and the rest is a big mystery.
Note: Although some scientists have been trying to explain the meaning of the origin of life for a long time, our mental sufficiency is not enough to comprehend the whole picture.
Each of us has different ideas and perspectives about life with different happiness expectations. A worthless element for someone can be a vital important element for the other one. For example, if you think that some children are dying because they don’t have access to clean water , then you can probably understand how the meaning of “happiness” changes for every single person. In fact, most of us, of course, are aware of these children but we hardly ever try to reach them to help. We sometimes watch them on television or read about them, feel sorry for them, however, unfortunately we often pretend as if they don’t exist.They are just other upset, confused, hungry and poor children whom we know but we cannot do anything to change their situations.
Now, let’s do something different, travel deeper into our feelings and think.
When we are able to think a little bit deeper, we can understand that we act differently to various situations. Our behaviours change when we are free or under control, or in war or in peace. Our responds to the situations completely differ even when we are rich or poor,or when we are a leader or not. when we feel we are safe, I am sure all of us feel more confident than when we feel we are in danger.
We cannot know how we feel unless we experience those situations ourselves. So, when we are not sure about our responses to different situations, how dare can we criticize the other people’s judgements ? As if it is not enough, we also gossip behind them just because we are not brave enough to tell them directly, face to face, what we think about them.
Do you know why we are like that? I believe, you need to read more to learn the reason of it.
I believe, we all have many happiness and sadness cheques whose dates are already fixed and written. Also, when the time comes, we will be asked to pay these cheques.Please remember that we will always have sadness and we won’t be able to ignore them.The question is; are we going to have the pain alone or are we going to have our families or friends around us to share them with us? or, are we going to share others’ hard feelings to try to ease their pain? The same questions can be asked for our happiness, laughter or loves that we are supposed to have in our lives. Are we going to share them with others and let them shared? Wouldn’t it be easier if we shared the burden and the happiness of all the cheques that we all have?
I believe, the more we care about the others , the better and easier we understand the meaning of life. Moreover, I guess, we will receive more and more light into our lives if we care about others without judging them no matter who they are.
As a result, I think as we understand this equation, our lives will certainly be more meaningful and we will definitely be able to bring more joy, happiness, love and goodness into our lives.
