Come to think of it..

I have no expectations in life. Ok, not no, maybe low. I live in a world of fantasy where I am God. I create my own standards, my limitations, my luxuries. Say, when I step into the mall, I shop like there is no tomorrow. There is. No tomorrow. People tell me this is a bad way of living life. I think they are wrong. I say this because of two reasons. One, people are just forced factors of conditions in my life who have an unfortunate gift of voice. Two, I am never wrong.

Being right or wrong is relative. What I do is always right to me, and I shall abide by my decisions throughout. My decisions become my factors of conditions thereafter.

Life is just about dealing with the conditions around at the end of the day, ainnit? I like making my own conditions. I dictate what affects me. Is that a safe way of living, is that living in a bubble? Maybe. Then are we all not living in one?

We are all living in a rather rigid set of conditions governed by the information we are imparted with. What if the world that we are informed about is false, then nothing is true. Every thing is possible. Is denial of everything the ultimate freedom then? Or an ignorant trip of escapism?

Either way.. I do not really give a rat’s behind, for this world is not worth worrying.

(F)ilosophy on a (Ph)riday .... Sometimes it is just a matter of re-arranging things you see. You have it all, just get your Fs and PHs right :)

Your last sentence makes for very profound introspection. And everyone whoz ever read the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" shall vouch for it. Hail the Rats!! :-p

Ahh, something interesting ...
something that equally puzzles me - what the heck is this life? A MIRAGE!!!

Off late, Im in a phase of complete detachment from anything *worldly*: With my shopping list plummeting, my bank balance is swelling - What irony!!!

I dont love anyone, dont hate anyone and my latest obsession is the crazy, nutty *voice* within me that speaks to me every night as if its a *separate entity"
IS this voice - soul (??!!!)
Maaan its far faaaaaar from holy;
and it poses the same dilemma -

What the hell is life?
A "vacation* from the inevitable destiny (death!)
- but a bloody loooong vacation! Somehow gives me spare time to work towards a place I'd like to live....if at all I win a ticket to another vacation!!!

The inhabitants of the little Gaulish village fear only one thing - the sky might fall on their heads tomorrow.

But they also say that tomorrow never comes!

Cheers!

"i have no expectations from life" ..... isn't that something that is just tooooo unrealistic ... and almost impossible to implement ...

Anonymous said...

thetis, i had too be back....

you've just hit my line of thinking..."is denial the ulmimate freedom or ignorant rip to escapism"?

I care a damn attitide; sounds so cool. Mostly I subscribe to "its my life" n "to hell with what world thinks" ...

Till I hear some cataclysmic news.... Then I wonder..Do I need my city to be bombed to wonder what's wrong with my society or policies? Then my most honest reaction is the urge to do something...

till I realize I'm tooo much of a dreamer....n get back to "screw the world" thinking...

I guess I keep shifting between these two attitudes..
to give a damn or not to ....

My theory is that at some point what is to be, will be. No sense in letting it consume me while I wait for it.

Quite often I wonder if we are all some prime-time TV show for some other planet... I should get my sanity checked I know!

We all build our own little fantasy worlds around us. It is where we stay happiest.
COz whatever the reality outside our worlds, hurts, bigtime, in one way or the other.
