Life is breaking into and joining of bits and piecesLife is bits and pieces of various experiences conjoint. When we come to this world, our life is a clean slate. It basically consists of empty bits and pieces waiting to be filled up with happiness and sadness, tranquility and turmoil. Initially our world consists of our parents. So our parents start joining the of the empty bits in our life with their love and guidance. Slowly, as we grow up we meet up new people like friends, teachers, colleagues and fill the remaining empty bits in our life with their thoughts, memories and experiences. By this time we are also fully grown ups and capable of filling the empty pieces of our life with our own thoughts, hopes and experiences.
If we really think deep, then the irony is that all of us try to fill the void of our life with bits of amenities and luxury. But do we really take them when we leave this world? We only leave our memories behind for the people with whom we shared our life. Yet we seek materialistic bits and pieces all our life.
The bits and pieces of experiences that we gathered all our life and made a beautiful ensemble of happiness with, disintegrate when we leave the earthly bodies. They remain as torn and incoherent bits and pieces of memories with our loved ones. Again, our loved ones make their own ensemble of happiness and experience with our and their bits and pieces of thoughts and experiences. When they die they also leave such thoughts with the memories of their loved ones. Like this, the cycle of life continues by breaking and joining bits and pieces.
