Change

July 27, 2009

Since we were born till you get to the end of reading this post, one thing has been prominent: CHANGE. You have become bigger, more intelligent, much more experienced and a lot more that has CHANGED in you. With a little observation, one can see a ‘hang’ in there.May be it is to say that your OLD self  ‘hangs’ itself and you ‘hang on’ to the NEW, better you.

So why do we hear people not wanting to change? May be they are too comfortable to be the way they are?But in some sense they have changed. To have decided to not to change means that they have ‘changed’ to resist change. But how long can one resist change?Is it really possible to not change?

Change is inevitable and for sure to occur not only till one dies but even after death where the body will decompose, form nutrition for some vegetation and be the edible food. The environment within us and outside us doesn’t resist change. More knowledge everyday, more thoughts and more thinking and analysis. This changes all the perception about the previous assumptions.

Changing or being the Change, you do CHANGE.

All of us have favourite something:books, songs, movies, comic characters. Having read, seen or heard them, we automatically try to analyse them. Somehow unconciously our minds picks up few things from them and it becomes a part of us.

To make it a bit more clearer. Many of us enjoy watching the TV series HOUSE M.D. Out of everyone who watch it, most them have a liking for the character of Gregory House. The way he is sarcastically funny & ends up being right all the time. At the end of it I realised I wanted to be like that guy on my screen and for no reason I felt i should have chosen MBBS over engineering(Mechanical is still the best) which surely wasn’t what I wanted then nor now.

Same thing applies to musicians, cricketers, the people around you(remember how to caught on to lingos of your friends around you), philosophies……The list can go on. Nor can this be avoided. It sure is inevitable and nor is everything inspirational; few are influencing us just like what I am writing now or have and will do has affected you, influence you in someway.

So how do I differentiate between the Real I and the Influenced I? How do I know that the choices I make aren’t under the influence of  some other person’s thinking or something that the person has said? How do look into my own eyes in the mirror and assure myself that the person in front of me is the REAL ME?How do I segregate on what should influence me and what should inspire me?

Questions remain unanswered. If you have them, let me know. If not join in; paitience shall pave way and we shall be enlightened at the end.

POST JULY 16TH

I realised I asked the wrong question. I wanted to know this system of life; which was working well just like the others. I questioned the obvious and the natural.Like Timbaland’s song it is:

THE WAY I ARE.
