What Do I Need In Life?
In the low and high tides of life, the question really concerns us what is to be needed most in life. Our needs are of individual but at very fundamental, the nature of our soul is same. so I think ,it needs same nutrition. Let me tell you what I feel about the greatest need of our life.
LOVE- For me, Love is not a word that can be so easily defined by Bollywood songs. Love can be felt, not instantly, but in complete awareness.Love completes us and fills the terrible void of loneliness. Well, I cannot define love but yet I can say what cannot be love. If anyone say his emotion ‘Love’ which is cuddled with envy, competition, distrust, expectation of receiving some thing, possessiveness and distortions of other’s individuality, I can definitely say, he/she is faking. I don’t how many person will be agree with my utopian thinking or ever feel such type of Love, But you know, hypothesis are basic steps of search.
KNOWLEDGE- I remember, in childhood, how a small green leaf of a mango tree, filled me with amazement. The round marbles, we used to play enthralled us. Slowly- Slowly as I explored these things, the amazement died out and new things substituted them. Knowledge, I feel, is residual of our exploration. An instinct, to explore, is shared by everyone. Nature has infinite capacity for exploration and so our journey to attain knowledge is never ending. We reveal mysteries; we invent new things; we discover new dimension. This is all result of our undying thirst of exploration.
COMPASSION FOR HUMAN BEING- Well, I feel, it is the best way to use your attained knowledge. The significance of our life reflects from the radiating eyes and happy smile, which we bring out to human being through our knowledge, in the journey of our life. This is something which connects our soul and gives a significant purpose to attain knowledge. Peace and serenity are gift for our compassionate nature.
One thing is evident is that all the three things, put above, are mental or emotional need. One need bread, cloth and shelter. But I think, somehow the fulfilment of these three will bring a more lovable, more humane and more intellectual being where bread, butter and shelter will not be a bigger issue..
Bertrand Russell truly says,
“Life should be inspired by Love and guided by knowledge”
