The origin of this blog is my orkut and facebook status update. As I had nothing new to update for past few months…I felt irritated and thought of describing my life in best possible one liner…”Life is so mechanical…Feeling like a ROBOT”….because my daily routine is like this.. Get up in morning, go to office, come back…read newspaper…talk on phone …have dinner and go to sleep and then comes the next day —– a NEW day with nothing NEW in it.
It’s amazing that, I have completed almost a quarter of my life and I really don’t know- WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF MY LIFE? What I want to accomplish or what GOD wanted me to accomplish. Of course, HE must have sent me on earth to serve some purpose…but what it is..?
Hope all of us remember our school days & of course, the most boring subject we used to have. How we used to study that? We used to study it just for the sake of passing exams & maintaining our percentage without actually understanding the real learning / motive involved in that.
I think the same is happening with my life. I am living just for the sake of living passing each day of my life without understanding the purpose of my life.
And I think not only me but most of the humans in today’s world are so busy chasing our MATERIALISTIC DREAMS that we don’t even get the time to think about the motive of our life.
Now , when we are stuck in some problem and you don’t see any solution, what is the approach? Look for other similar things / situations & observe them. This is wat I did to find answer to my questions. I m one of GOD’s creations and there are so many other creations of GOD around us : – Water , Air , Sand, Trees , Mountains …… And what is common in all of these? They are serving other creations of GOD. Now , we may think that I am doing job and serving my company. But here lies the difference. We are serving and we are earning. But all other GOD’s creations are serving unconditionally without expecting any favour in return. For instance, water is essential for humans, animals, trees & is therefore serving us but does it want anything from us in return—NO, nothing…
But most of the humans just think about “ME “ & not “WE”. Even if we serve or help someone we expect a favour in return.
All the conflicts, disapproval, jealousy, hatred in this world – be it at family , office, city, state or national level is just because of lack of cooperation, understanding & helping attitude towards others.
Though we humans have brains , thinking power, intellectual ability & I won’t say we have not used it. We are today using air and water as means of transport. We are today using trees for furniture, paper and many more things. In short, we are making “Optimal “ use of all of GOD’s creations. BUT ARE WE DOING “OPTIMAL” USE OF OUR OWN EXISTANCE ?? – NO.
Have we ever thought , what GOD wanted from us when HE created us ? What are HIS expectations from this world and all HIS creations?
Let us take an example…
All of us know about JIGSAW puzzles in which we have blocks or cardboard pieces of different shapes jumbled up. And we are supposed to join them to get some beautiful picture or image as its outcome.
Now , coming back to humans. Have you ever wondered why all humans are different? WHY GOD HAS DONE SO MUCH DISCRIMINATION? Everyone has different qualities & attributes- some are too intelligent while others are not, some are rich some are poor , some are practical , some are emotional & so on… Each and every human being is Unique.
This is because I feel all of GOD’s creations are HIS JIGSAW puzzle. Because if HE made me complete with all qualities and perfection why will I talk or cooperate with you? HE WANTED US ALL TO COOPERATE & HELP EACH OTHER & LIVE WITH UNITY TO COMPLETE HIS JIGSAW PUZZLE – TO MAKE THIS WORLD HIS PERFECT MASTERPIECE.
But unfortunately, inspite of being so brainy this world failed to understand this message.
So, I have hit one ball and the next one was ready for me i.e., How to proceed in fulfilling the purpose of my life? I am just one single entity of GOD’s Jigsaw puzzle and my efforts alone won’t be sufficient to solve this puzzle.
