It has been almost 3 years since I left the Doctor of Philosophy study to work on myself as a human being first in this confusing world of constant battling of one side against the other. Since of these battles can trace their origins as long as time itself can remember. We all face obstacles. How to deal with those obstacles defines who I am, and how successful I am in my life: there are problems we need to deal with one way or another, we may delay the progress by switching it to another tasks that somehow incorporates these problems as we are pulled together by a higher goal, for example, making money, growing faith, gaining righteousness. These higher ideals call people under one banner.
Steve Jobs once said: “Your time is limited, so do not waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. At most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
This quotes pull me back to where I am in my life today: a boat floating on the seas of past, sailing towards some destination only guided by my guts. Steve Jobs is no saint, and I realized that somehow, being saintly is part of my life at this stage, though admittedly, I do not know if anyone judges this living standard today, as what we call a living standard today is going to be obsolete in a few years time, and the new generation growing up will have a different standard we have never even heard of. Therefore, as long as I am breathing and moving and acting, this journey of life of mine on earth is not finished, unlike what said by Benjamin Franklin: Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75.
