I have a lot of insecurities, fears and experiences that stops me from moving forward.
Yeah. Not a new thing to say, isn’t it?
‘You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.’
Remember this line in the movie ‘The Dark Knight’, well now it makes sense to me.
The hero can be a hero when he is fighting a villain right! But when the villain dies, then the hero can be misunderstood to be a villain because there’s a little difference between being a hero or a nasty villain.
The line of difference is the will to be at peace or create havoc.
Because with great power comes great responsibility. Try to be creative with your will and people will come up with titles.
If I would be honest with you guys then here’s a fun fact; People fear the things which they don’t understand, like for example God. He is all powerful and strong, haven’t seen him ever, so they fear him.
Now to sail this whole discussion away into our own deep self, I began exploring the deep questions of consciousness and life.
Like why are we here?
Is it all planned or are we just some lucky bastards who are alive due to some evolution?
Now you may ask –
Really, bro, that’s what you think in your 20s?
Think about girls, man, like how to get one?
Basically to do what? Have coitus with her.
Leave her for someone else. Villainous isn’t it?
Our life can be depicted by a mouse on a wheel, running round and round and round and round with the same desires and lust for comfort…
Well we need comfort basically and to be comfortable, one needs to be rich, isn’t it?
MONEY! MONEY! AND MORE MONEY!
A big house will be nice. A nice black Mercedes will do just fine and a large bank account with 7 figures amounts will be all very sexy. I can manage. Sounded dreamy, isn’t it?
But life is more about GIVING than taking, more about CREATING than destroying, more about HAPPINESS than envy.
Don’t wait long enough to be the guy who you hated in the first place…
Either tolerate something bad and keep moving forward in life (die a hero) or you hit your patience and start doing something which will eventually lead you to become what you hated in the first place(live long enough to see yourself become the villain).
God bless us all.
