(the)fence

Just how many times does it happen that you want to jump over the fence and for once feel what it's like to decide everything on your own? So many millions of times that you've envisioned that place in your mind? So many plans, so many dreams. Just how badly you want it - Uninterference, that is. And you've worked for it, done all you can. And you're right on the cliff, just the edge - all you need now is to jump off - and not care. Just let go. And then, someone moves the chroma screen from the front of your eyes. And you're back to where you started, a neverending trap which ultimately goes nowhere. Petty makebeliefs. Its a sick, sick world.

" Wtf, am I doing? I'm sure everyone goes through this phase, so its all cool in a very zen-ish big minded way..."

By the way, this blog's getting a bit sadder these days. Who's been taking all your happy hours, eh?

Passion versus Parents is a tough call. But if you have to choose, passion should win.Humanity wouldn't have progressed if people listened to their parents all the time.

Sahi. I feel better somehow. It sure gets to you to argue and rebel against your own people. I have a thing about quoting people, and here is what Oscar Wilde said, "Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man's original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion".

It's not too bad a world now, eh?

So, right you are. Life throws such situations at you many-at-times (though not always).

Nope, not so bad at all. Impermanence :) IF you belive in it enough, nothing else lasts long enough. (I guess)

Well, since you started already with the brief history of time, might I suggest the book The Theory of everything by the same author(I've just finished this one though). And I was surprised more becuase it is not just a title of a book but actually an existing theory which has been around for some time (forgive my general ya da).
PS: as for commenting about your post a little time back I too was having similar thoughts when I posted (though not as profound as yours)http://relativeconstant.blogspot.com/2006/04/quarter-life-crisis.html

Your truly,
Another blogger of the same block!

Have been visiting your blog since then and am slightly disappointed that you've haven't posted anything new since May 20, 2008.
Being one of your fans, I am pretty eagerly waiting for a new post. Like I said earlier, it gets me thinking. :)
Ciao!
