I wrote about the Dying regrets of terminally ill people few days back. Now I wish to write my commentary about each one of them; to start with the first one:This is the top 5 of the Dying regrets which means people are faking all their life to make others happy and not themselves. In childhood we eat food what our mother liked us to eat. At school & college we took the course what our parents missed in their life. After marriage we danced to most of the tunes of our spouse. In corporate life we did everything to keep our peers and boss happy. While dressing we chose a dress which the society will approve. Alas! Throughout our life there was nothing we did for satisfying ourselves.
There are three states we have choice to live:
1. Looking good
2. Feeling good
3. Being good
- The looking good is a state in which we are always trying to look good in the eyes of the society.
- In the feeling good state how we feel is more important than what others are thinking about us.
- The being good is the highest state the prophets have reached in which all are divine in their vision.
The dying regret dealt in this post is the result of living in 'Looking good' where we are not living for ourself but for the "Ghost" called society. Beware and learn to live to your ideals and what purpose you have come here for. If you have born as "Tendulkar" don't try to become "Latha Mangeshkar".
As Rajneesh once said "If you have born as Jasmine and try to become a rose, you will neither be a rose nor Jasmine". Be what you are and live life fully within the laws of nature and if you do your peace of mind is guaranteed.
With whole of my heart.NC
