My Amusing Mind.. As It Wanders

May 6, 2008 at 7:14 am | Posted in Thoughts | 5 Comments

Today morning , while I was travelling in auto , the stopped at a red light. Next to the auto was a big red AC volvo bus.The auto driver touched the bus and looked at it with some sort of admiration. That action of his initiated a series of thoughts in my amusing mind , as follows.

Why did he do so ? May be he dreams to drive the bus some day , a big AC bus. Or may be he wants to sit in the bus and enjoy the AC. A dust free peaceful ride. Will his dream ever come true. He might have never experienced AC. He might never will. I will pray he will. Actually I will pray that every man and woman should experience all they aspire atleast for day. That there should be at least one day in everyone’s life when they feel that I want no more and this is the best I ever wanted. That day may not be same for everyone , but just one day.

And then that led to a different set of thoughts all together , like, what will happen if my prayer will come true. Will it create more problems ? Will be people be more unhappy after that day ? Can there be such a day actually , when humans can say , I am happiest on earth today , there can be nothing more I can wish for myself.

I could have continued with the thought process forever, but then the destination arrived and I payed the amount due and walked into my office.

Editted to Add : After reading the comments I would like to say that the post was just a spontaneous thought flow triggered by the auto driver’s action. I agree that happiness is just a perception , I also agree that being content hampers growth sometimes , but all I wished for was EVERYONE getting a day (just a day),when one feels like a king , for example if I ever wished to be the CEO of my company and thought that is the best that could happen to me in this life , let me be the CEO for one day and live my life to full.

  1. You wrote “That there should be at least one day in everyone’s life when they feel that I want no more and this is the best I ever wanted. That day may not be same for everyone , but just one day.”

    Happiness is all perceptive. That day can be TODAY if only YOU would look at it that way!

    Somehow I do not agree with being content and I do not agree with being negatively competitive also. If people wouldn’t dream, they would not strive towards it!

    i guess each one of us is perfectly content on few days every now and then!!

    and it may be a big dream come true or a small unexpected kindness received!

    its all in the mind afterall!

    🙂

    cheers!

  4. I think most of us have such moments – for example when someone very close to us escapes a crisis or when we get something we wanted badly . trouble is we forget it over time and think we have never been that happy in our lives. Human mind, I tell you!

    Very nice post Swati… I really think that happiness is a state of mind…
    so, I agree with NM, when she says that “Happiness is all perspective”
