Planning Our Lives

From Celia’s Images in a Reflecting Pool; a Journal.

I think we plan our lives before we are born.  If so, given that I have always spent much time in thinking about what I should do next, I’m sure I planned carefully on the other side.  

I once had an intuition that my growing-up years went just as intended.  I wanted to emphasize working hard on academic pursuits and developing the impetus to achieve.  Now when I question the advisability of all that, surely some balancing act is taking place.

All of us enter life with a script that is filled with challenges and hurdles meant to build Character in the highest sense possible.  But, as Wordsworth says, we forget about this intention (“. . .Shades of the prison-house begin to close/ Upon the growing Boy, . . . .”  Consequently, we attend alumni reunions with a bright smile, making conversation that lies about a successful life with rarely a cloud in the sky.  Instead, we should drop our masks and admit that life has been tough.  After all, we planned it that way—each and every one of us.

One thought on “Planning Our Lives”

  1. Indeed we plan our lives before we born. I think this way that the whole Universe is an autonomous system and we all are system administrator. But we(mostly) don’t know system administration in efficient ways. However according to own capabilities we make ways for the next.
    Thank you so much for sharing this thought 😊
    The first line of your post made my mind very joyful because I do believe same as you said.
    Your website title “Planning our lives” is unique. Since I do study Upanishads and quantum science,(Vedanta philosophy, spiritual Text), I believe that planning our lives is most important.
