The struggle for existence has long history as of mankind itself. Life is always a struggle. Struggle for food, shelter, clothing, and above all peace of mind .Life is a dead end street. ’Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage. And, then heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing” [Shakespeare]
When we observe the nature, is that possible to find that, there exists such a struggle there? Everything is calm, and serene, controlled, in order, and that is the reason we term it as ‘natural’. The fundamentals of struggle are rooted down in our minds, feelings, and desires. Our needs, our greed.. That is why we struggle in life. These factors are corroding the peace in our life. We have to come out of that cocoon and live in joy and sunshine. Our success and happiness lie with us. External conditions are the accidents of life. .’Hard words, passionate attitudes, destructive thoughts,. Uncontrolled impulses, and desires, free floating fears, and anxieties cripple our ability to live a life of contentment, and meaning’. 'The aim of life is self development. To realize one’s nature perfectly- that is what each of us is here for” (Oscar Wilde) Struggle actually happens in the mind only. If we understand that truth, there is no need to fight. ’The treacherous, unexplained areas of the world are not continents, or the seas; they are in the mind and hearts of men’. .Our way of thinking has to be changed into a positive path. Accept the things that we cannot change. In making a living today, leave room for life, for reminiscence, for love, for laugh, and for imagination.
‘Life is a series of transformations. Death only one more change of address’
“Happy is the man and happy he alone
He who can call today his own.
He who secure within can say
To morrow, Do thy worst, I have lived today.”
