We are bound to fulfill the expectations of others. In childhood parents expect us to study hard and play less. Actually we expect opposite. And there the struggle starts. At every stage of our life we are expected to follow which is considered right, useful and safe. If we can follow this then all is well ! we can finish study with nice grades. Can get a job of 5-6 numbers. Can get married within society’s boundaries. And can live a comfortable life.
what else you want ?
Why can’t you be happy for the success of your job ?
Why you have dreams of your music classes ?
Why are you missing your school’s annual day function ?
Why are you wishing that your child should have interest in playing Gitar ?
Because once you want to walk on that path but you couldn’t !
When you said your parents that you are more interested in music than study; their response was horrible. They show you the picture of the failure life of an artist ; and convinced you that the different path is dangerous.
So . . . . you obey them. Study hard . Take job . Get married. And started wishing that your child should have interest in playing Gitar.
And you wonder; why I am wishing my child to follow that dangerous path ???
Why I couldn’t throw out the old Gitar which I never touch for fifteen years ?
Why my soul cries for something ?
Why I see dreams of music ?
I think many of us have this experience when you don’t dare to follow that different path .
Did you think why you are fascinated by that different path ? Why all worldly joys and comforts can’t make you forget that different path ?
It is simply because that is your soul’s urge . Your passion for anything is your soul’s reflection. That is part of your soul. So following soul’s urge is natural. And following anything beside this is different.
You are living your whole life restless because you are not following of which you are born. But you are following society’s standard path which is different from your soul’s desired path. From your soul’s point of view society’s standard path is a different path.
Really, following different path is dangerous ! It is injurious to soul’s happiness. After wasting whole life many people realise this !
