WHY ??????? some of my musings

July 10, 2009

Why is that when we know we will not take any thing with us when we leave for our final journey then why so much greed for money and material things?

Why is that when we know that when the society is US and we are the society, we bother so much about society (what will people say) ? And give it more importance than self .why not do what we want? Moreover we know that no one will come to our rescue or offer their helping hand when we need except for only giving lip service they why do we bother so much about people and their views?

Why is it that when we say we are not concerned about what others think about us and we will live our life as we please, we still look forward to the views of others?

Why is that when we can not tolerate negative comments passed on us, we go on commenting on others behavior and expect them to take it in positive spirit and treat our comments as a guide to improve themselves?

Why is that when we expect certain acts, deeds, gestures, behaviour from others then, we just ignore that others may also expect certain things from us?

Why is it that when people who are hurt (I don’t mean physically) go out of their way to do such things or mouth such words which will surely hurt others? Is it because they think that (a) “when I am unhappy why others should be happy”? Or (b) they think that by venting out their feelings on others their pain and suffering will be reduced and they will feel relieved or (c) they just derive sadistic pleasure in hurting others?

Why is that when we know what is done can not be undone we still want things to be in the original format ?

Why is that people who condemn /criticizr certain acts of others ,do the same themselves?

Why is that when even after regretting some thing and admitting the mistake, the same is thrown on your face again and again?

why is that even after serving the punishment given by the judiciary the soceity still punishes you by shunning you out?

Why is that when we know change is essence of life we still resist it?

Why do we brood over the past so much as to spoil our today as well as tomorrow?

And when I know there are no answers to these reflections of mine, I still expect some solutions.

WHY WHY WHY???????????????????

    Well, if we would all become a bit more narcissistic (in a good way) and truly love ourselves instead of getting jealous and selfish, that would solve a lot of our problems. What do you think? Its only an 'if'…!

    these answers are not all unanswerable…
    it may sound philosophical…but the answers are really within…
    we can really live without worrying about others…and we can really do things the way we want and bring them back to the original way….and be good at accepting criticsm…we can be all these…

    because we're humans.

    if everything was logical and just,

    it would be too boring.
    there would be nothing or no one to blame!!!

    Hey! very pertinent musings. If there is something called "Food-for-soul", these are definite ingredients in its making!

    The questions are so much to ponder ourselves as they are to ask them out!:).. As they say "you are not destined to be happy, You choose to be happy". I think this applies to all the points you have put forth! Every thing around us will change when we decide to let it happen. Its all in the mind. The day we realize that things in our life are to be controlled by US and US alone, every thing will start to change. Its all in our minds.
    The day we understand that success, happiness, aims and life in general is very subjective to each individual, we feel liberated and no obligations will bind us!

    We expect things to go the way we want them to…thats where the problem lies. I think if we right then everything around us will be right and positive. Whatever the human mind can perceive…it can achieve!!!

    Oh soo many questions…I asked myself and have no answers!
    Just one thing which am sincerly trying from ages is " not to give advice, if you cannot actually step in and help" and to give speace to people around you and let them be themself.

    Sometimes there are no answers and even if there are, they may not be the right answers for you.
    I have stopped thinking of too many whys in life…it makes life much simpler to live. That is the only answer I have come to:)

    No idea Anju. If we new the answers and acted on them, then the world would have been a much better place.

    a part of it goes to your "double standards" post. There are a lot of questions which people can answer and others which they wouldn't even if they know it. That's just how people are
