At the end of a busy day, I tell to myself, “Thank God I don’t need to remind myself to breathe, else I would have been long dead!”

Our body is continuously working, each cell, each organ is doing its duty with perfection without us consciously instructing it to do so. You are breathing in air, the lungs are extracting out the oxygen, in return for carbon di oxide, which is being breathed out. The food you eat is being continually digested, broken down and utilised to provide you energy, to repair damaged tissues, but you don’t really know what’s happening in your own body. Your sense organs are recieving stimuli from all directions which is continuously processed in your brain, without you being aware of it. Actually your body is working 24*7 but still you don’t know it!! And all the while you are caught in the whirlpool of your own trivial thoughts. Even though life is flowing through every cell in our body, we are unaware ot it. All that is catching our attention is this incessant bombardment of thoughts. We are aware of our existence only because we are thinking! Actually we think through our life rather than live through it…

Imagine that you forgot to breathe in after breathing out… Poof!!! You are dead in the next moment… Life is as fragile as that… but it doesn’t happen that way, because life wants to live! It will not let you throw it away so easily. Life holds on.

Life is so sturdy… Have you seen the grass growing even on high mountains where it is so cold that even our bones feel chilled? Still life manages to survive in that high altitude. But life is so fragile that when you pluck the grass out, it exists no more, it’s no more alive, the life it was harbouring is gone… 

Life is so sturdy… The little ant even if he falls off the table which is a thousand times its height is still alive, but yet life is so fragile, that the moment you crush him between your fingers, he’s dead…

Life has a mind of its own, it flows where it wants to and how long it wants to, and once it decides on a change of course then no matter what we do, we can’t hold on to it….

Life is so sturdy yet so fragile…
