I am 26. What is life? Why am I here? Am I here to fulfill the great purpose… or may be I just live this life. May be it is like museum where I come and look. My life is simple and I can say that it is being good so far. However, I do realize that there is no good or bad, it is my sorting of mind that I learned.
The life as I know is a very precious thing that I have. Sometimes I disregard simple laws of nature and pollute my life with unnecessary substances – oh well it is a luxury of my decision making process.
How should I live my life?
The answer is simple: the way I want, feel and do. It is too short. The first mistake of mine is thinking that it will be here forever. No. It is not true. It will end at some point. When one loses relatives one understands that it is not endless. The life has a dead end – the ending point where one will have to stop. Well. Does it mean that I should live every of my day to the full potential? Yes. Do I? No. I waste a lot of time. I make decisions that are based on my eternal living. Is it true that I feel that this life will never end? May be. The only thing that alters my behaviors is the state of death. The fear of death is obvious. It is inevitable. I will be there. You will be there. Everyone will be there.
What is known about death? Absolutely nothing. Now, there are plenty of speculations what death is and what happens after it. The death is unknown. It is inevitable. It is real. The very understanding of this concept puts me in belief that I am alive as long as I am not dead.
Death is a reality check. I tell you, that you will die in 3 days. Your behavior will change. You will say whatever you think and do what you always wanted to do. The knowledge of an end changes the behavior. What if I assume that this is the way I should behave at all times. What if the knowing of death is an imminent threat?
I do not want to die. I love life and all its perks. I make choices and I bare responsibility of them. I want to live. I am in charge of my life. I want to live the life like it is the only day I have. The day is here. I am alive. I am a living organism. I can think long term. I can plan long term, but the reality is unknown. I can die any moment.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
What one thinks when he or she hears those names? Nuclear bombings of the August 1945 probably are the most common. The history is dry and does not have alive content in it. The only thing that it offers is statistics. The bombs killed as many as 140,000 people in Hiroshima and 80,000 in Nagasaki by the end of 1945, roughly half on the days of the bombings. Since then, thousands more have died from injuries or illness attributed to exposure to radiation released by the bombs. In both cities, the overwhelming majority of the dead were civilians.
Wait. ..We know that a lot of people died. But those where people with hearts, beliefs, long and short term goals. They had their kids in college, planning weddings, applying for a better job, changing their habits to preserve their older ages in health. What had happened with them? They are dead. Did one of those men thought that it is possible to see the whole community, family, city dying from radiation. Wait. We just planned a trip over this weekend… Oh well. It’s all gone. They were all dead before they knew it. That’s it. That is the way the life goes.
While it is great to have long term goals, one must consider reality and possibility of the death at any time. Try to stay away from the things you do not like to do. Live to the full potential. This life is very precious to waste on things you do not like. Follow the path of the heart and throw away society objections to your behavior. Throw away “normal” way of doing things.
One man said:
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society”.
Dilemma here is to whether to adjust to a society or challenge the modern way of life if one thinks that it should be challenged. The choice is yours.
