Game of thrones finale taught me one thing today.
Being the ‘chosen one’ doesn’t make you the ‘right one’,it just makes you the ‘convenient one’.
Convenient answers are the simplest,but not in the least bit enough to understand and unravel the complexity of the world.
Daenerys Targaryen could walk through fire unharmed and was the mother of three dragons.There’s your chosen one.But that didn’t give her the right to kill innocent people.She could use fear to rule for years to come but it would have been a convenient way to keep together the seven kingdoms,not the best or the right way.
Knowledge doesn’t take you far.Only risks do.
Make most of your strengths rather than obsessing over your weaknesses.
You can’t calm down a storm.You can only calm yourself to face the storm.
How to convince someone about something? By being the best at it.
To lessen the madness of the world – first start off with atoning your own sins.
Do not cope but live life.
Not every result is desirable.But that should not stop you from making a judgement or taking an action altogether.
Happiness for me is an open garden with beautiful flowers.Flowers do fade away or get crushed though.That’s the inevitability of life and one must be prepared for it.If you want to sustain your beautiful garden – you will have to protect it and tend to it.You will have to face a lot of threats,get some wounds in the process and feel the pain for your dream.The more of it you feel,will either make you more determined to protect something precious to you or force you to give up and watch in terror as you lose everything.If you want peace of mind you will have to tend to your thoughts and behaviour and ward off any stressors out of the way.You can’t remain ignorant and happy at the same time.This may be your reality but certainly not your full world.
As we become an adult,logic becomes a norm and creativity something unique.As a child it is the other way round.To us some of their endeavour may seem fruitless,but what they do all the time is completely new to them,and that’s important.They don’t hesitate to try because they don’t understand the cost that risk bears.Who do you think is more vulnerable? Us or a baby? Of course,the latter.Our mental faculty helps us to assess and averse the risk but not take it head on because we are afraid of the consequences.We have more tools that a kid does to get ourselves back on the track,yet they are the ones taking more risks than us.We understand our risks and have a greater ability to deal with them yet we take a step back.It doesn’t seem that we just evolve from childhood to late adulthood but more like evolve-devolve,for both good and bad.
