As the year 2013 is approaching, I am trying to think in, out and through the “Black Box”. A question that has occupied my mind for a long time – at least since a decade – when I captured the question in my mind in the following picture (in the year 2003).
Life is filled with race – for money, luxury, comfort, security, fame, name, recognition, success etc – all the “so-called” ingredients for a happy life. Most of the humanity seems to be in search of something exquisite, which it fails to comprehend, but engages itself in a race for the above things in the hope that it can achieve that exquisite goal. The above things give security and freedom, I am sure, but do they give unperturbed happiness, peace, contentment?
At times, it appears I know the exact answer to the question; at times, it just eludes me and I am back to where I started. I feel I have raced enough. I cannot say that all that came out of this racing is permanent and ever-lasting happiness and peace, since that is quite contrary to the usual ebbs and tides that characterize a person’s state of mind. But I keep racing. I am planning to do some serious thinking to start the new year fresh with some healthy and happy perspectives and possible answers that I can embrace.
