Breaking away from the flock

This is a collection of thoughts not an article.

Setting sun teaches us about the impermanence of life. Everything has to undergo change. But setting is not the end. There is new life.

Like the sun, life appears on a morning and starts a crescendo. By noon, it reaches its zenith. By evening, it is time to fade away. Again life reappears in the morning.

Breaking away from the flock requires courage. But the breaking away should be for a good reason and for a good purpose. It should be not just to satisfy the ego or being different for the sake of different.

There is no other home, heaven, or hell for us mortals. This is our only home – our final abode. It is for us to decide whether we want to make our home heaven or hell.

Preparing to exit the world with ease and peace is an art we need to master.
