Compassion hurts. Doesn’t it? It’s like you feel connected to everything and every person around you and also feel responsible for everything happening around you. Whether its your own life or others,whether its your own personal decision or a decision you will take for someone else around you and then comes a point where you just cannot turn around.
If we take it in other context cant we just say that our destiny is bound with the destinies of others?
One must either learn to carry the Universe or just be crushed by it. There is no other way one can find to get rid of this. Today’s world is so fast that you need to either grow with or fall aside if you are not speedy enough to catch up with them.It’s never going to be like that one day you wake up and you are like ” Wait,what did just happen ?Is it the same world I used to live yesterday or am I somewhere just left behind?” These questions come up when you are competing not with the world,but yourself. One tends to ignore the fact that everything in this life is not about competition,it’s about growing as an individual so that you can match step to step with others.
Whatever you want to achieve,lies in your destiny. Destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. All you need to do is work on your actions. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions,what we do and aim to do and our attitudes does not need to be discouraging,because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. When your compassion changes into competition,it does nothing but spoil your actions. All the negativity or actually or actions can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements. It’s all about the winds of destiny that can either blow to help you rise or vice-versa when you least expect them. Sometimes they gust with a fury of hurricane,sometimes they barely fan one’s cheek. But the winds cannot be denied,bringing as they often do a future that is impossible to ignore.
The conclusion to this is,you must grow strong enough to love the world,yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors. Be compassionate but make sure that compassion doesn’t turn into competition one day and spoils every bit of you because we find the meaning of life with one another not just us alone.
