CATharasis

"Don't Worry, That's How Life Goes..." - I think it serves as a good solace. I m using it today.
And also the Coldplay Number - A Message, serves good:

...And I'm not gonna stand and wait
Not gonna leave it until its much too late
On a platform I'm gonna stand and sing...


No if's & but's, no restlessness please.

Normally I hate pithy platitudes or cliche-ridden stuff...like "Everything Will Be Alright", because they are highly contextual and carry with them various assumptions when they were carved out at the first place...However as they evolved, their purpose evolved and are no more used to state Facts per se...we have given them more subjective meaning.

But somebody was right stating cliches encapsulate the "purest form of truth and wisdom"...and you have to chisel that out from the time-worn-dull-meant covering, so as to absorb it in truer sense...

Maybe some experience needed sometimes...but not necessarily.
So next time when you chance upon a chinese proverb or listen to your grandma slurred voice: "Son, dont worry your time will come...", dont be ignoramus & shrug it off...better would be to visualize urself in such a place and see how you react to it.

For me today's cliche would be what
Swami Vivekanand said: Keep No Expectations From Anyone...Live An Independent Life.
But why does it turns out to be idealistic-but-impracticle quixotic kinda thing???
Looking for Answer...Still.

Only one regret today...I didn't "Keep Smiling" enough. Yet another cliche.

"Keep Smiling!" is what I find difficult too I admit... And its a wonder to me how some people manage to do that all the time.

I agree dude - am with u on this.. cliched as they r, these things are true..

For eg- Live like there is no tomorrow - 'Kya pata, kal ho na ho' - Dont we do that ALL the time?

@ Aparna
Yes we do that all the time...That's the irony u know...and results finally in truth being neglected...Definetly then as it stands: "Prejudice Is Ignorance..." :-)

Heyy... you know what... though ignorance is bliss, it feels really gr8 to face the truth and then drive your own destiny. I remeber Swami Vivekananda's words "Only the truth shall make you free."
