Today is my 4th.day in Bhutan,in this trip,everyday has been a revelation to me.All of us very easily get adjusted to the life we live and also the life we aspire.Both of those happen to us.It is just that,what you aspire,your source is checked once in a while.As long as your source point,intention,is clear, you meet your aspirations.But in the process of meeting those aspirations, you are made to go thru the process,which you need to,to let you know, you aspired,but did you know you have to face this?and if you do overcome them,with a smile on your face, your next goal,or,milestones comes in front of you.
What is the source of aspiration ? Many.But few of the things which has come to my notice and in my journey, are a combination of your upbringing,your
immediate social environment,your ability to keep pushing yourself,your hunger,or,desire,to excel,to make a difference(these are also at times upbringing f
factors)and maybe a bit of externalisms,like,fame,glory,pride,desire to share,etc.
One more factor, perhaps plays a major role in aspiration.It did for me.Which is your innate purity.Your naivity.Your innocense.If you mix these with the above, your search factor in getting more out of your life,gets a nice mix.
This so far is the Jonathan story.
My personal inspiration in life.I have not met Richard Bach,the creator of Jonathan Livingstone Seagull,but he doesnt know,what he has done to me,and many entrepreneurs like me,who grew up reading his book,and got inspired.I have spread the book amongst many friends, Globsyn youngsters,students,as many as possible.
Now come to another character,he created in the same book.Which is where I am headed to. This character is called Chang.When Jonathan just about felt,he
has achieved virtually everything,he had to,and started flying higher and higher,he met Chang,where Jonathan believed no one could have ever gone.
He asked him :What are you doing here ? Chang said :I live here.For many years.
So, Chang has a new ,different, life and story from Jonathan.What is Chang's story? having achieved all what Jonathan had achieved,and living in this space,alone for so many years?What does he do?
That's where I wish to travel.
That's for another day.
