I think it is a good idea to revisit our past and reanalyze those days of our lives when we were sad over our heartbreak or super happy on getting the first company that came on our campus.
Is it possible that the happy days of our life should sometimes be our sad days as we got something we wanted but in the bigger picture they are the things that really limited our exploration? Or that somedays, we were sad on a failure but those failures actually pushed us to our maximum potential. We missed the big picture on those days.
Then when I do that, I wonder, in future, how would I know whether to be happy or sad on a given incident. What significance will that incident have on the context of the bigger picture? Will this doubt make me not experience the emotion that incident demands? Will it average out all my emotions and deprive me of moments of extreme sadness, moments of extreme joy - moments of life? Isn't living life same as vibrating with these emotions - in the ignorance of bigger picture.
Then I wonder, do I want to be enlightened by the awareness of this bigger picture or do I want to remain ignorant?
