NO STRINGS ATTACHED
An elephant chained in its growing years continues to remain in check throughout its adult life for it thinks the chain is unbreakable.
Remarkable as it may seem the strength of chain is no match for the mighty elephant yet the huge beast remains contained always. No questions asked.
This is common for us humans as well. We remain confined, limited without questioning the validity of the chain which contains us.
In the name of rules, rituals, practices, traditions, dogmas. We remain held, captive for our entire life or generations which follow through us.
This proverbial chain is an unique collection of our past experiences both good and bad, individual and collective across the humankind almost ingrained or imprinted on our DNA. It keeps us safe and away from risk, neatly cocooned in our comfort zone.
It also keeps the huge mammoth of potential dreams, unlimited creative possibilities and life changing decisions blissfully asleep unaware or on a screen saver mode for major part of our life.
There are few instances when life throws challenges which awaken the beast who then tugs at the chains wanting to break free, alas the instances are few and far away from each other to make a shattering impact on the vast majority of individuals who after a small bit of struggle go back to the snooze mode almost immediately, and sadly life continues as usual …
To make individual progress and collective impact we need to change this 'Chalta hai’ mindset.
Now is the time to examine the chains which contain us.
Now is the time to awaken the untapped potential within.
Now is the time to get out of our comfort zone.
To challenge the possibilities within!
Pick your cause, be it health, fitness, quality time with family, enhancing career by taking extra education, social causes, personal journeys.
All are relevant and make perfect sense to the awakened.
The mighty 'Elephant' within is called to the dance of Life. No strings attached…
