I don’t want to give any credits to anyone for making me to live a life without worries, except myself. I agree my friends and family have helped whenever I need them. But choosing a life without worries is my own decision and no one can impede me to continue it.
I am a 21 year old boy who has accepted that everything is possible with patience and persistence; and to live a life without worry a man must find the purpose of living. There are a lot of people who feel boredom on weekends or in vacations.
I believe that they will die young, without giving any good to the world. An aimless and empty life is nothing more than a dead life. ‘Without purpose, the days would have ended,’ said Admiral Byrd, ‘as such days always end, in disintegration.’
Many people fume and fret thinking about their future and kill their good times of present. Sometimes, I too feel the same, but then I remind myself the words of Psalm CXVIII: ‘This is the day which lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.’
I haven’t found anything good in thinking about my future. What I have believed is that a good today makes the past good. A good today also designs a good future. Everyone has problems in life.
A man solves one problem and he finds himself in another. It is worthless to keep worrying about the problems. Instead, he must learn how to live in problems.
It does not mean I have stopped planning my tomorrow. I am deliberately involved in planning and preparing my future. But without fears and burdens. I don’t want to die with high blood pressure and diabetes.
I recall what I read somewhere ‘Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all that life really means.’
Man is born with a congenital disease of desires. If he continuously desires and does not work to fulfill his cravings, he creates a miserable life for himself. On the other hand, over-desiring for something is nothing. You never get anything from over-desiring.
The important thing is how you are managing your desires in present. If your cravings are fuming and fretting you, then be patient and live the present.
I often turn to the poem of Kalidaas whenever I get disappointed thinking about my future:
Look to this day,
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action.
The splendour of achievement.
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today will makes yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
