Someone chanced to be born in USA and another one in a tribe in Africa. Someone born in USA planned to travel to Europe and chanced to be at the Brussels Airport at the time.
Someone chanced to born poor and made it to super rich. That super rich chanced to be in Syria and had to leave it all.
Someone planned to take Uber to home and chanced to get in the way of rogue drunken driver.
This World is a mess. You don’t take chances… Chance takes you.
Enjoy this moment! This moment is the only truth.

Baandh ke yun, kyu chal raha hai khud ko…
In sab ke banaye daayere mein!
Ye apne pankh faila ke to dekh…
Kahan door tak le jaate hain ye tujhe!
when I apply whatever lies within…
to create whatever I can…
only then I become ‘I am’.

Once you decide on your occupation… you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job. You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill. That’s the secret of success… and is the key to being regarded honorably.
– Jiro Ono (from Jiro Dreams of Sushi – a must watch documentary)

Ten years of continuous search, research, lots of books and what not to find answers to few larger than life questions.
- What is life?
- What is my purpose?
- What is that one special thing I have been put on the Earth for?
- If you have all the money in this world, what would you do?
- If you know that you are going to die in one year, three years, etc. what will you do?
- Find your passions and find out what you like doing
- Write your own Eulogy
- Act on your dreams NOW!
- If not now, universe is not going to inspire you ever. (By the way, do you really think Universe conspires / inspires? Does it even care? Really?)
- No one cares even if you do it wrong. So, just do it.
- Do BIG things. Make a dent in the Universe (Steve Jobs). Do EPIC shit (Johnny Truant).
- ‘Live EPIC in the moment’.

With each passing year, each hour, each moment… we experience so much. And then ‘Experience’ of having these experiences and accumulated experiences… I’m today talking about this accumulated Experience with a capital ‘E’.
With each experience we become wiser, more strong and emotionally more stable… As they say.
But is this accumulated Experience really good? Is becoming emotionally stable really good?
With each and every experience are we not slowly moving away from our core and intense emotions… are we not becoming cold to our passions? For e.g. first encounter with actual death or terminal disease you witness… you are not able to sleep for days… then next… then next… and then yet another. And suddenly one day you realize that such things doesn’t affect you that much. You have become stone hearted. Then next thing that moves you is something happening to your very close family/friends… you again feel heightened emotions for some time… then next… then next… and we are emotionally cold again.
Another not so dramatic example… we are in early twenties and we believe that we can do almost everything in this world. We take up your job, hobbies and interests very passionately. We want to change the world. Then one year passes with some compromises… some routines… attending to some urgents somewhere. Then another year… then another year and slowly passions and dreams die to give way to so called reality and responsibilities (another socially acceptable excuse for procrastination). By the time we are in our thirties we have ‘E’xperienced so much that we would not even realize that we have become stoney, emotionless, lifeless. And we end up saying passion is for kids we have already so much else to look into. Really?
Why can’t we do something about it? How can we keep our passions alive?
Solution is simple. At least sounds simple. We need to unwind some experiences. Undo. Forget some of the things. Let go of the load we carry.
But how? Few ways – Speak out loud. Write out randomly. Keep writing till your head feels lighter. We need to find out what works best for us but we need to connect more with our deeper emotions and let go of any limiting ‘E’xperiences. ‘E’xperiences should not become an excuse for us to disconnect with our soul.
Let go, simplify and keep connecting.
