Everyone has one private cloud. Like one dream. The problem is this cloud never remains the same. It is ever changing. Looming round the corner with a new unknown face.
Education creates a mind-set which is unidirectional. It stifles the mind of its capacity to think and grow in all directions. It robs the mind of its glow and brilliance. Much like the picture below. While as there is an illusion of moving forward, of making progress, but you miss out on the fabulous palette of opportunities life offers on both sides of the path.
I often wonder if we should be meditating on the year gone by or welcome a new year about to usher in. Should we look back and pick up bits and scraps of wisdom from the path just walked or jubilantly look up to the unknown and hope for a bigger share of luck.
If you pick up wisdom of experience, future will bring success. Hope alone will not work.
Look to the sunrise for ‘hope’ and look to the sunset for ‘wisdom’.
