Good afternoon all!
Hope you’re all having a great day!
Today, let’s Forget the World!
Zone in. Focus. It’s all about you. Forget your family, your friends, and your world for a minute. Just focus on yourself.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau said,
“Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.
One man thinks himself the master of others, but remains more of a slave than they are.”
Profound words, they are. And also true. I’m not calling for the abolishment of all laws; laws are the pillars of a civilised society. Without the right laws, we’d be savages.
I’m just asking you to be free. To be independent. To have thoughts of your own. To have an opinion.
I’m not asking you to be rash. I’m asking you to learn. Form your opinions rooted in the wisdom of our ancestors.
Our world is expanding at a rapid rate. Our technological advances faster than ever; yet our Thinking is medieval. Be bound in values; not in thinking.
We boast of being one of the fastest developing countries in the world, economically; money is nothing to boast, when we can’t progress mentally and socially. Our actions, decisions, and even our thoughts are governed by the ‘Society’. By the forever-judging, always-righteous ‘Society’. We are bound by the stereotypical, narrow thinking of our Society. Nobody here asks a child or a woman his opinion; simply because for the world, they don’t matter. This has to change.
Is having a voice a crime? Is dreaming a crime? Is being free a crime?
Be free, my friends. Don’t make decisions according to your society; the worst decision you can make is to ‘not listen’ to your heart. It’s your life, not society’s. Live your life, only on your terms. Be sensible of what’s right and wrong; but be free, in your mind, in your world. Act free.
Become an engineer, not because Sharmaji’s son got accepted in IIT; but because you’re passionate about it.
Happiness and success are actually connected-
Find what you’re passionate about.
Put your life into it; become the best at it.
That’s when you can be truly happy. And successful.
Free your minds. Form your opinion. You are an individual; be one.
This is Your life, make the most out of it. The Society will always be here; you won’t.
Be You. Live free. Live happy.
