In Search of Direction


When you come across a point or avenue in your life, where you feel that you have successfully completed the task assigned to you by the universe (God), what do you do? How do you manage your life? How do you find out what's next? Who do you look for the directions in your life? Who guides you? From whom you take an order? Who requests you to take up the next task and accomplish that? ...Sorry, if you, as an average reader, are not able to understand what I am trying to say here. Let me explain.

Recently only, I was having a chat with one of my family members. This guy is a young talented student. He has just completed his Class XII. For him, now is the time to join college. While he can take admission in any of the best colleges of the city, or migrate to a metro city to join a University college, he thinks otherwise. He does not want to go to the college. Don't get him wrong. He has some other plans for his life. He wants to continue his studies, but not full time. He thinks it's a waste of time. Instead, he thinks he will become an entrepreneur and after an apprenticeship with any of the cities best entrepreneurs, he will have his own business; however, he will continue his studies, side-by-side.

What I thought after the chat was over was about the sense of direction this guy had. He had decided what he wanted to do in his life, of course at a young age. This guy had a serious sense of direction. Even if we do not agree with his decision, or think of it as a childish one, we will have to appreciate his determination, sense of direction and decision-making ability. And after rendering my appreciation for him, I thought of all those questions that I have mentioned in the introductory paragraph. 

In search of Direction
Then I thought that the universe (God) is kind. It has given us the ability to give direction to our lives when we reach at a point where we seek the "direction." Either in the form of parents, or teachers, or friends and relatives, or the Internet content, or professional councilors, etc., there are several sources that are there to give direction to our lives. In addition, there is this very special source, i.e., the "Inner Voice" that is ever ready to tell us what to do, which direction to go to and what to make of this life. This "Inner Voice" is also called the intuition or direction from the higher self, etc. Isn't it good to know there are so many sources that can direct our lives? Be sure, your source of direction is readily available. Just try and identify it. Also, choose the best from among so many sources, so that you get the best direction in your life and reach where you intend to reach in your life.

Why people exercise

Exercise helps to keep body fit, flexible, toned-up and agile. A fit and agile body adds around five or more years to an average person’s life. If one exercises, all physiological systems like respiratory, nervous, skeleton, endocrine, blood circulation, etc., function perfectly well. A regular schedule of exercise keeps the metabolism in control, helps to burn extra calories, provides extra power when the body gets tired and thus works towards self-assurance and self-motivation.

A pair of comfits

A  pair  of  comfits  (the  doctor  sandals)  is  just  a  pair  of  comfits.  It  walks  its  wearer  out  in  comfort.  Sometimes,  the  reason  for  which  it’s  bought  makes  it  special;  it  becomes  a  pair  of  uncommon  comfits.  
Hence,  the  incident  of  Mr.  Kapoor.  He  remembered  how  he  felt  that  the  pain  in  his  knees  had  reduced  since  he  started  using  the  pair  of  comfits.  It  was  a  new  pair  gifted  to  him  by  his  beloved  wife  on  his  last  birthday. 
Initially,  he  was  hesitant  to  buy  any  birthday  gift.  He  thought  that  exchanging  birthday  gifts  is  a  practice  among  kids,  teens  and  youth.  He  had  crossed  forty;  he  shouldn’t  be  into  all  this.  In  addition,  he  wished  for  a  non-pompous,  silent  birthday  that  can  be  celebrated  best  with  the  family  and  good  food.  But  his  wife  pursued  him  to  buy  something  for  daily  use  on  his  birthday.  She  reasoned  that  she  would  go  and  buy  som…
