Since long, my inner voice was always pressing me to write something different away from my legal pursuit for awakening of mankind. With pressure of professional work, I have been deafening my inner voice and deferring the inevitable.
I was awakened once again right at the beginning of the nationwide lockdown. It is then I realised that destiny has something different in store for me. I therefore, took up a rough pad and pen. Sat quietly for not less than 30 minutes totally blank and pondering upon the subject to write on. No thoughts, just fidgeting with my pen and at times rubbing my eyes only.
After a little while, a thought suddenly struck my mind of 'perception of good and bad'. What is good for one may be bad for the other and vice versa. I introspected myself whether I will be able to do justice. 'Yes, attempt it', was the inner response. I settled on the 'perception' – of good and bad through sensory information.
My pen nudged in my fingers as if prodding me to write. Believe it or not, the moment I began, my writing speeded up with flow of thoughts. While penning on perception a new thought occurred about good feel and bad feel and out flowed another topic on "feelings". So the flow started with topics multiplying. On analysis of the multiplying topics, I realised midway that I am dealing with all aspects of abstracts of life and that gave me the title to my writing "The Abstracts of Life" – a vision. Interestingly, the entire lockdown period of over 12 weeks passed by without me realising that I was under lockdown. With every day, the thoughts multiplied and I felt my writing becoming creative. By the time, unlocking 1.0 was introduced, I was nearly ready with not less than 43 topics on the abstracts of life.
While penning the subjects, I will honestly confess that Google search did help me with terminologies, meanings and analysis. Having collected the basic data, I coupled them with my thoughts and experiences to give birth to a vision in the form of "The Abstracts of Life". Each topic has originated from the other and is interrelated, yet distinct, all touching the inner chords of a human which remain either unnoticed or unattended to.
The events begin with life and end with death, both realities. In between life and death are our different emotions and varied feelings which every human encounters one day or the other.
Existence of a human is with the mind which is a magnet, but both creative and destructive. It is therefore imperative to be aware of one's onscience and sensory information giving the right perception. A human seeks and wants to attain tranquillity and remain happy by adopting goodness and ensuring that truth prevails by following ethics and morals. Such a person lives with humility, awakens his compassion within and inculcates passion and desire to learn, improve in life and thereby overcoming sadness and depression, surpassing anxiety, killing stress, shedding fear and distancing from jealousy. Every human attempts to maintain character, ensures to be judicious, plans his strategy and aims at perfection. He acquires knowledge to achieve success, keeping service before self with smile and gratitude. At the same time, he adores his friends and their friendship, maintains relationship and keeps faith.
A human realises that ego is destructive, controls his anger and avoids hatred, applauds the creator, aims for ultimate spirituality and allows the destiny to play its role. By nature, every human seeks solace, peace and divinity in love and sex by complimenting each other and pleasing his soul and spirit, the invisible. Having adopted the best of abstracts and attributes and having lived his life, he welcomes death when due as an eternal sleep.
I do not claim to be an authority on the contents of this text nor I am a preacher. I am just sharing my little knowledge and experience with the readers. I have attempted to be lucid, clear and express in my views which are strictly personal with no intention to hurt anyone’s feelings, sentiments or ideals. I have been exponent and frank in dealing with each abstract of life without any bias.
Every human has a dual personality, one is strictly personal and the other is for the world. To keep a proper balance, he forgets cultural values which need to be adhered to for living a satisfying life. I have therefore dealt with both positive and negative abstract aspects of life. I have suggested the ways and means to lead a positive, healthy and happy life and to attain solace and peace. This text has been enriched with unique abstracts of life.
