The world which we live in, our existence which is known as life is not real. It was never real and it will never be real. We were born, we grew up doing many things, we made friends, we studied, we worked hard, we got a job, we were married with someone, we had kids, we grew older and we died! Science call it a person's lifetime or life cycle and religion calls it a journey of soul. But in reality, it is plain stupid. Again, how can you determine or know this is reality?
PS: I am not drunk right now!
I always wondered, well from the time I started wondering and it dates back to many year, that what is life? What actually is life? My existence is life? What I feel is life? This planet Earth is life? What is life? Is life the feelings like happy, sad, angry etc? I don't believe there is any person who knows what is life? Every person has a different mindset. Walk on the road, meet strangers and ask them this simple question, what is life? I bet you will get the weirdest and the strangest and the newest of the answers?
We were taught from the starting that there is God who created everything. Well, Science doesn't says so. I am not an atheist but sometimes it's too hard to believe that there is someone who is controlling everything. I can't believe the people's mindset that they don't trust any random stranger but they accept and trust the fact that there is a God who runs and control the whole goddamn Universe! It's really very tough to believe.
So, we were told that Life basically means to be born, grow up and die. This is the basic simple criteria of life and in the whole process, we face trials and tribulations, happiness and success, pain and regret and guilt. Really? Is this life? Life is basically a magic trick performed by the best magician ever and we haven't realized it yet.
Religion says that we have a soul inside us, isn't that frightening in itself? Haven't you ever thought that one day that soul might come out from your body and might talk to you? Frightening! Several experiments have been done on this field and many even agrees with the fact. Incredible Magic trick again!!
Okay, simple point, if really we have a so called 'Life', how can people differentiate between a good life and a bad life? A person born poor and a person born rich, well, who decides that? A person born in USA and a person born in India, who decides that? A person born as a boy and a person born as a girl, who decides that? God? Where is he? Science? How?
Definitely, whoever reading this would either be considering me drunk or maybe insane. I am none. But really, calling a life which has just pain and suffering, is it really worth to have a life? The most intriguing sentence I have heard and read at many places is that, 'I have to know, what I really want in my life' and then, 'I have learned how to live a life.' Please dear friends, please teach me that. How have you learned to live a life? How can you seriously define life?
We are just like animals who are left in wildlife sanctuaries. At a point they start to believe that this is their home and they live there only, despite the fact that they are given a specific place to live. We are the same. Someone pulled a magic trick and we tend to believe everything around us is real.
We know how we are born which is by the process of reproduction. I agree, that is a clear method, believable! But death? What happens after death? If we believe in the 'Soul' term, what happens to it? Confused? There is no proof till date of our after-death, though there are some cases in which people described that they have seen the after-death world. To be very frank, I am scared right now, a little. What if today is the last night and tomorrow was just in the plans. Unpredictable, eh!
People believe in the process of birth, they even believe in Last Birth thing, but when it comes to after-death, the most common answer if asked the same is, 'The soul goes to either Heaven or Hell.' Now what is Heaven and Hell? Again, blank! No answer! There are 1000 questions but not a single answer and people have accepted this fact and they live happily in a so called Life
Dreams, now dreams are the most interesting part of Life! What are dreams? What do we see in it? How dreams are controlled and who controls it? Is there a future in dreams? Answer: um, I don't know! Dreams are just dreams. Everyone would have felt some incidents in reality which they would have seen before in dreams. So, are the dreams portal to the future? The source and motivation of my novel was actually a dream. I won't indulge into the story but to be very frank, I saw a dream much related to the theme of my story and I build the whole novel from it. So, basically what are dreams?
People so casually accept Dreams and Death as a part without even trying to know what they are where as they will take a full info of the people they meet. Amazing, isn't it? Certainly, I have many questions about my existence and about the existence of this whole world. I might probably go insane thinking about it in few years or I myself accept it as a fact. But, Life is not Real, it is the best magic trick someone ever pulled!
