Biologically life is a characteristic that distinguishes objects that have signalling and self-sustaining processes (i.e. living organisms) from those that do not, either because such functions have ceased (death), or else because they lack such functions and are classified as inanimate but life has an altogether different face also. Life is not as easy, it is much more difficult than we actually think it to be. Life is complex and brings about complexities in different forms and so it is to be understood that life is not a bed of roses. It shows us good as well as bad times.
Everyone can survive in good times and stay happy and can be smart with words and go on saying words of philosophy. It is only during the bad times that the real substance in a human being is witnessed. When he/she can fight through the bad and the unfortunate times and be as strong as he was during the good times and when he can face the jeering throng. ‘Bad times’ are not so bad in the true sense of the word. They have positivity too. For instance, they make us much more stronger then we were before, it makes us wise, experienced and reasonable. Plus, we are able to make distinctions between the bad and the good when we actually live the bad phases of our life. Gradually we become more cautious and careful and take our future decisions carefully for which we don’t repent. Unfortunate times can come in different forms: seldom professional loss brings about drastic change in our lives. The other day I was reading Q and A where Ram was sharing the experiences of his journey in order to become a millionaire he met an astronomer who had made a discovery of a star in the field of astronomy whose credit were stolen by another astronomer. Then, he lost his senses after that by drinking, shouting and abusing both his wife and daughter. Another instance could be of a student, who can face bad times by not getting admission in colleges, by not getting professional success during the most crucial phases of his student life, sometimes faces problem because of some of his class mates and friends but these kinds of struggle makes us strong, brave and more than anything else wise. We do shed tears in pain and grief and we feel frustrated and traumatised but viewer’s these are just small examinations that god takes and he only makes us pass them. Everyone has to face adversities in some or the other phase of their life. Viewer’s, you may recall I talked about an astronomer above. By his example what I was trying to say was that he lacked will power which was the only thing he needed during that phase of his life. By will power I mean a sheer fire to improve and think optimistically in the worst of times. Will power is the only way to fight the bad and the wrong doer and certainly abominable times. We all should have a pinch of will power in us because it indeed is much needed. Don’t fear the bad, fight the bad. You may shed tears which nobody sees and you may fall possibly a repeated number of times but don’t forget that you have willpower and that you will get up and fight the bad again. So, try and inculcate this trait in you. Good times and Bad times go hand in hand. If the bad times are there good aren’t far behind as we all know every black cloud has a silver living. Reader’s, no wrong doer goes unpunished. Never forget everybody gets his share of justice and punishment. So believe in yourself, time and god. Everything will be perfect with time and also time has the power to heal every pain. So, have faith and don’t forget the will power because it is the biggest weapon to fight during your worst of times. Lastly, be optimistic and I will again say what I have said before in my article have willpower and more than that have faith in your willpower. ‘Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity and willpower.‘
