I was just learning some words of Korean and was surprised how my mind would want to compare it with Hindi or English. It was so difficult for the mind to stand independent, alone, by itself. Learn without leaning on the crutches of the learnt. Later when I thought about it, it was so similar to the way we look at life. Our deep-rooted impressions have formed a penchant to events or an aversion towards them. An impression is a feeling. And a feeling needs to be thrown in the garbage where it belongs, to experience the newness, to experience life as it is. The misery is because we have already decided the flow chart of life, the patterns of how it should be, or how it should not be! Life is in the present, as it stands, today. Right now. Changing, all the time.
PS:- The picture I selected since it has the buds which depict the future and a flower which has faded away which is the past, but it is amazingly beautiful with the petals of the present.
