No matter what happens, we always kiss life. In other words, life moves on with the road of time. It really does not matter how we perceive life. It always happens the way it has to happen and perhaps, in the best possible way. Even when it is not best for us, we accept it like that and move ahead. Then, at some point of time, we may realize that it was the best thing that could have happened or it happened because it had to.
Is it like that?
Today, while taking down the notes of paper IV, a strand of my hair fell off on the sheet of my notebook. I took it in my hand, stretched it to its full length and started staring at it. Thin, blackish, long and even. I brought it closer to my eyes. Everything except the hair faded. All I could see, was my hair. Then, I distanced it a bit. I could see my hair along with the things beyond it, my notebook and pen. I, then, ignored my hair and concentrated on other things kept on my table. The hair faded away from my vision. This is very normal. The focus of eye is adjusted according to the distance of the object to be seen. I was playing with my ability to see. I made three observations listed above and I wanted more. I tried changing the distance of the hair again. Nothing special, the three observations got repeated.
The Balanced Vision
I tried moving around with the hair in my hand put near my eyes; the observations got repeated again. Then, I suspended the tiny strand of hair freely in the air, with one end in my left hand and moved it to and fro in simple harmonic motion vigorously. At the extreme left and extreme right positions, I could see my hair and at all the other positions it was a blurred image of every visible thing that my eyes could create. Things beyond my hair were obviously not clearly seen. I wondered how such a simple thing got unnoticed since the day 1 of my existence. Continuing with my experiment, I then changed the positions, of mine and of the hair strand. I found nothing new.
May be I am stupid, but that’s how life works. The focus of our brain and heart gets adjusted according to the proximity of people and incidents that we come across. The more you go near, the clearer life becomes. It largely depends upon us that how much importance we give to things around us, to whom/what we allow to come near us and to what we choose to ignore. They all fade away, just because we don’t see them. But they do exist. When we take life for granted, life puts us at extreme situations and there perhaps, we learn to value it, to see it closely, to identify with it.
I feel, my vision is very limited. I could see only four dimensions of life, like the four unshakable directions. East, West, North, South. May be my ability to comprehend life is limited to these four ways. But that does not mean that there are no other dimensions. They sure are. Maybe someday my horizon will expand and I would be able to find the fifth dimension of my vision. After all, I am keen a learner.
