Into the wild…

Posted in Experience, Personal by justaroundme on November 18, 2010

Have you seen this insurance ad.The kid asked to ride her bicycle in a space barely bigger than her cycle.It is funny.

How much space do we get in our life.At times, I do feel that I am duped like that little girl.I look bewildered in need of more space and more movement.The soul within us begs to set it free.It wants to wander across mountains,deep oceans.It wants to travel like a gypsy beyond the geographical boundaries to get the feel of freedom.It weeps silently wanting to follow its passion without any fear of the future.Sometimes, it simply wants to stop right there and be idle.It doesn’t want to move any forward.Other times,it pleads to voice strong opinions.

But in reality,we can function only within the confined space of our family, our culture, the country we make it as our “home”, the laws (the immigration rules for immigrants !), our relationships, our abilities, our knowledge,our religion, our commitments.

These invisible strings make people to stay in jobs that they don’t like, tolerate unhealthy relationships,endure lonely turbulence within but simply carry on for the sake of the outside world.Oh poor soul, how do I set you free with no physical dimensions and boundaries.

Am I making sense.NO?.Never mind !!…

Hey do catch this ad.The boy looks cute,ha his face expression is priceless!!!

And have you watched the movie …”Into the wild”…if not,please please do.It is deep, intense and serious but quite an experience.

      yup..that is a wonderful movie…

      and one quote from the movie,which is kind of cool – “Mr. Franz I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don’t want one. “

      Misty,We all get trapped in one way or other and we are made to realize at some point in our life time….
      and please do share your thoughts after watching the movie…

    You make perfect sense. But there is no need to always be binded by invisible strings. I found ways to soothe my mind.. then found that a calm and balance mind brings up creative ideas to shrugg of bonds and enjoy life 🙂 But yet to do it fully! I keep binding myself in these invisible sticky strings 😦

      Each one of us try our best to unbind ourselves from the strings, but then how far are we able to do that becomes a question again right ? 😦

      But,I am glad that you are trying to achieve balance.
