Today we were discussing about the obstacles that come across in life.
I try (or at least wish) to consider obstacles as the initial steps that we need in our life to reach somewhere we have never gone before.
For me, life is all about learning. Learning brings new insights and so life is vibrant. I prefer to see life in that way.
One of my friends put forward a totally different thought saying – ‘I think, god is making me prepared for the worst things that are yet to come’.
For my friend, it was about creating immunity!
May be god doesn’t want us to get scared of what is yet to come and so incubating us in a pseudo state before we enter the real danger zone in life.
May be we all are trying to be immune day by day by adapting to things in our life that we come across each day.
I think we can relate this to Life Cycle which is about the metamorphosis – pupal transformation into a butterfly – it needs time and patience for the larva to reach the state of beauty, to enjoy the nature. Though the pupa looks inactive from outside, the changes happening inside is enormous even if not visible.
Same way, at some point in life we might also feel that we are becoming inactive, or may be we are not getting what we ought to get. But may be we are just getting equipped from inside, though we don’t realize at that point in time.
I dream to fly
And I plan to succeed
Though I am prepared to fail
PS: Thanks for the word immune - It provoked my thoughts.
