This world is full of different people, who have different believes, cultures, religions and languages. No matter how different we are, yet we all share something common at some point of time in our lives, which we call ‘feelings’.
We are like a painting, full of variety of colours and each colour is blended with other, yet has its own touch too. Or we are like pieces of a puzzle and each piece has to get along with other, in order to complete the puzzle.
No matter where we are and what we do, we are ‘unique’. No one in this world has same life, yet we share same ‘feelings’. These feelings make us soft or push us to take tough decisions. Based on these feelings, we make our opinions and then shape those opinions into actions.
How incredible is this life! Sometimes we have a choice to make and sometimes we get dragged into a situation with no choice left at all. Whatever it may be, whether willingly or willingless, we get affected by our feelings.
Some feelings are temporarily and others leave a permanent mark on our mind, which is known as a ‘memory’. Depends upon the intensity of our feelings, we get to experience these memories. I ‘felt’ very ‘happy’ when my daughter got graduated eight years back, so, that ‘feeling’ of ‘happiness’ has now got a permanent impression on my mind. Similarly, my cute little dog, who had been my room mate too, passed away two years ago, which has created a ‘bitter and painful memory’ for me.
We re-live our experiences when we ‘recall’ our memories, because we again get the same ‘feeling’ that we had experienced initially too. So, the intensity of any action creates ‘feelings’, which leads to ‘memories’.Sometimes we do not like to think of a person because of a bad experience that we had with that fellow and on the contrary, thinking of a loved one brings a smile on our faces. Although that fellow is near us or not, yet had left an impact on us.
During the caravan of life, we meet and leave people; then meet new ones and leave them too, but we keep on moving. People come in our lives and go away. Some stay in our lives for little time and others for more. But people get to leave an impression on others and no one can take their place in our memories. Even if we try, we can’t replace them with some one else in our memories.
Sad but true, this is something that we do not have control upon, because our memories had been generated by our feelings, to whom we can not defy.
Keeping our hearts pure and not holding any grudge towards anyone, can help us have pleasant feelings and memories, which will keep bringing happiness to us later in our lives. Science has progressed so much, yet few things are so simple. The heart does not has mind, so, it does not think of anything, it can only ‘feel’ and pass that ‘feeling’ to the mind to create a ‘thought’ or ‘memory’. Keeping it ‘pure’ can help us create ‘good feelings and memories’ for us.
