I know that the readers of this blog must be getting bored of Philosophies of life. Life as such is a long and complex choice; the views we have on those will be different as well.
As the writer of this blog, I try to find different perspectives in life from daily life.
This determination made me get another one from this hindi movie Dil Chahta Hai.
The movie as such is one of my favourite Hindi movies of all time.
But the philosophy of life from this movie goes rather unnoticed.
The movie is about three friends. A girl is in love with one (Aamir) of the three (Aamir, Saif, Akshaye) but the guy doesnt like her at all. Another one (Akshaye) of the three friends is trying to explain this to the girl.
He takes beach sand in his fist and clenches it hard; most of the sand goes from between his fingers as he tries to cling on to it.
Explanation: The harder we try to get someone or try to keep that person with us, the more distant you grow from that person.
This small gesture addresses the biggest problem most of us faces. Possessiveness.
Why do people tend to get possessive? It is one of the most natural of human emotions. People tend to admire someone/something so much, they do not want to lose out on it. It might be insecurity or maybe you are stubborn.
We have to realise that if we have to cling on to someone, that one person might not be completely yours at all. The harder you try the farther they get from you.
Freedom is a birth right as the Great Mahatma's said some while back. Everyone needs it. Give everyone their space and they will give that great big pie of their life to you; if you deserve it. Let independence be yours as well as the person you are so possessive about.
Visions and Perceptions from your life makes this world a better place to live in. So let us all open up that clenched fist of ours and discover peace.
