A state of being is just existing but bravery is the true meaning of living a life. Robert Frost is notorious for speaking on the different stages of life. In the poem “The Trial by Existence”, Robert Frost speaks of bravery, life, and the after-life. A life lesson taught throughout the entirety of the poem is doing what you desire and overcoming the fears that are implanted in the cycle of life. Frost gives everyone hope in every poem he creates that something better will transpire from their current life struggles.
Is it even possible to “overcome craving in all forms?” I don’t think it is meaning we constantly have to work at finding contentment. As for the “perfect happiness,” I agree that there is no such thing here on Earth. Although, I do believe there is such thing as it being true as opposed to limited. Thomas Jefferson so smartly ... ... middle of paper ... ...of time and the other type, more permanent and true. I think that both depend on us to reach them.
You are in a place which is alien to you; where you do not know anybody neither does anybody know you. You are completely on your own. You have the freedom people crave for and during this time period you can do anything you wish for without thinking about what the world with say. This is what travelling gifts you as said by Freya Stark, “to awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.” There is something strangely endearing to be on your own. The thought may sound frightening that you are alone and you will have no one to turn to lest you get in some trouble but that is what life is all about and this is what travelling teaches us, to take on new challenges, to not care about luxuries and instead find a new world.
There will be no disclosure to greedy or decadent cultures. Instead of it, people will be surrounded by happiness and joy. However, the perfect society represented in Thomas More's Utopia uses reason alone in political, religious practices, and in society. While I was reading Thomas More’s book, the Utopian society had some aspects of my “perfect” society and it has some things that are similar to the world that we live in now. Firstly, Utopian people do not absolve wars, disturbance or assault.
“It’s rumored,” Maimeó said nonchalantly “that the sídhe are from Tír na Óg, the Land of Eternal Happiness. In this wonderful world, there is no death or sickness. There is an abundance of all things pleasurable: food, drink, and music. When one lives in Tír na Óg, they do not age or lose their beauty.” This made no sense to Neil. “If some of these guys are weird and dangerous, how can it be called the Land of Eternal Happiness?
In this sense, enlightenment is just coming to a realization that life is random; disasters, injury, good news, and even death can occur at any time and thus, one needs to live life to the fullest in face of this uncertainty. My quest in life is to experience every aspect of the world possible to me, from adrenaline rushes to falling in love, for these experiences are what make life interesting and worthwhile.
Different cultures have developed varying myths to coincide with their religious beliefs and give reprieve to their members in the face of irrevocable death. The same is true for the stories in the Book of Genesis and the Mesopotamians’ Epic of Gilgamesh. In these two myths similar paths are taken to this absolution are taken by the characters of Adam and Gilgamesh, respectively. These paths, often linked by their contradictions, end with the same conclusion for each man on the subject of immortality; that no amount of knowledge or innocence, power or humility, honoring or sinning, will achieve them immortality in the sense of a life without death. Eternal life for a mortal lies in memory by one’s friends and family after one’s death.
The wants to send a message that the one who is truly free from all the worldly norm and bounds will only nurture himself to his fullest potential and leave an imprint in the sands of time for the other seekers to find their way to reach their madhushala. In one of the few verses, he stresses on the point that even in the residence of god, you will not be allowed to enter but madhushala is the only place where there are no bounds. Everyone here are in their sense of utter joy and it purely irrespective of the fact of what was origin was. The poet conveys that it is completely irrelevant from where and from what you start out as a seeker,
Close your eyes and imagine a world free of war, suffering and pain; an environment that provides all the necessary luxuries to maintain eternal happiness; one that is stable, friendly, peaceful and enjoyable. In this world, every inconvenience known to man is rid of. We are no longer affected by disease, aging, heartbreak, depression or loneliness; conformity is at hand and stability is achieved. Now envision a world where there is no love, families do not exist, humans are no longer conceived yet created in test tubes, and sexual promiscuity is not only acceptable but enforced. Picture an environment where there is no religion, art or history.
Having a great amount of fortune won’t keep you genuinely happy, you well be satisfied with your lifestyle but once you die , you can 't take that with you. Someone once told me that, “Happiness is a gift sent from heaven, a smile graced on a face and a laugh fixed with a beautiful melody. It’s beauty in a song that you 've never heard, but know all the words to.” It about doing a good deed to someone, staying simple but being the best person you can ever be, and being loved. Happiness is a sense and is a mixture of emotions, being glad and relaxed. On one hand, many people stay happy by having positive thinking and attitude.
