We humans are merely passengers on a train called "LIFE", whose route takes us from “BIRTH” to “DEATH – TERMINUS”. Birth and death – the circle of life. Most people just rush through life. They can neither see nor hear, they are in a hurry to get to their destination. But what if it’s all about the journey?! What substance do we fill the journey time with? Is it love or envy? Understanding or indifference? Or perhaps, we don't even set off toward ourselves, because we only get as far as the station and then let the long-awaited train pass by? Or is the load we carry blocking our progress?
Are we hauling our luggage of childhood trauma, bag of disappointment, or box of hatred into subsequent relationships.
We can’t go back, can’t start all over. What should we do?
One of the greatest opportunities of being human is that there is always another way! We can always do something different from what we have been doing - that is the only way to change.
Realise... gain insight... re-live...
