Everyone is the sum total of his reactions to prior experience. As your experiences expand and vary,, you become a different man, your perspective on things evolves.. Every reaction is a learning process; every significant experience alters your perspective. Perspective molds further reaction and so on. This is a perennial and iterative process, until perhaps dementia sets in. ( प्रतिक्रिया ही जीवन है और जीवन ही प्रतिक्रिया - वोह प्रतिक्रिया है जिसने चम्पू को दीन , गोकुल को धूर्त , और बंशी को विद्रोही बना दिया )
So it would seem foolish, to adjust our lives to the demands of a goal we see from a different angle every day? How could we ever hope to accomplish anything other than becoming neurotic idiots who serve our neuroticism with to do lists, and a skewed frozen perspective which defeats the freshness of perspective.(दास्वीदानिया movie देखी ?)
Goals hence are meaningless. They make you arrogant when you achieve them, or restless when you stray. They give a linearity to a frame of learning which ought to me more holistic, spiralling. They stunt life into meaningless non-memorable routines.Life actually happens to us in between getting from point A to point B. We laugh, cry, tense up, let go, sigh, exult and go through various other consuetudines of existence. In the interim we build various comfort zones to ward off solitude- family, love, career, hobbies. We mistake these to be life, yet when the gray cells age and company and productivity abandon us to solituide, we fear it instead of accepting it as the way you entered this world. All alone, naked and unendowed of anything but the ability to observe, react and evolve.
