Life is a…………

Life brings strange feelings at times. There are days when one is filled with moments of immense pleasure and there are days when one questions the mere existence of it. There are moments where there is so much agony, so much pain that one is frozen in horrible dimensions of the world. My mind just wanders between those moments and I at times find myself in abyss of darkness. My difficulty and for that matter- difficulty of every individual - whoever desired to achieve anything worthwhile comes in the movement. We all tend to desire something important in life and if that desire is not fulfilled we get unhappy, depressed and upset. Most of us fail because we never get started or we never overcome inertia or we don’t want to begin anything new.

Life is a moment to celebrate, to enjoy. Make it fun, a celebration, and then you will enter the bliss. Look at life-do you see sadness anywhere? Have you ever seen a tree depressed? Have you seen a bird anxiety-ridden? Have you seen an animal neurotic? No, life is not like that - not at all. Only man has gone wrong somewhere and he has gone wrong somewhere because he thinks himself to be very wise, very clever. Your cleverness is your disease. Don't be too wise. Always remember to stop - don't go to the extreme. A little foolishness and a little wisdom is good and the right combination makes you a perfect human being. - (Some lines of this post have been taken from Osho's Zen Tarot)

>> "Your cleverness is your disease" - not sure, but I have a short story to say:

Watching a beautiful full moon, a man in sadness says that he finds a blackspot and no beauty while a man in happiness says that he finds a painting of a rabbit that added more beauty to the full moon.

Bottom-line, I feel - "Your sadness is your disease" :-)

If not for cleaverness we woudnt have progressed and if not with cunningness and opportunistic attitude with cleverness we could have lived without hiroshima, nuclear weapons, spite and hatred.
Man has indeed lost purpose of life and is just trying to live smart.
