Are You Living Life of Quality
A burning question which you ask often to yourself, when your friend see you after long time they ask you this question, we raise this question while concerning for our near and dear ones and the question is ‘Are you living a life of quality’. The definition for quality life is not common. Different people say different things about quality of life. For few people, it maybe to wear colourful and fashionable clothes and accessories and look great, for others, a quality life means to eat good food and live a healthy life.
A life of quality maybe to go to a discotheque and to visit bar twice in a week for others. For some, quality of life is staying at a great place or travelling to great places. These all factors for quality life are right at their places. But, the factor which we are going to discuss in this blog is somewhere related to our mind & psychology. Therefore, we put this factor at the top of all for a quality life because mind is the opening door for all above factors. Before going forward, let we go through an imaginary scenario below.
The Imagination –
You are a fun loving guy, you like to go to pub, you like to go to mall, you like to go to disco and bar and have fun all the time. Imagine, one day you are at your home alone and you were told from your father that one of your relative, who is a patient, coming to your house for one day and you’ve to take care of that patient for that day. You can’t go outside, you’ve to stay with the patient & have to take care of him. You have to follow what he asks you, whether it’s food, water or something else.
Now, you are going to stay with the patient because it’s an order for you but somewhere inside, you are not happy at all. You just wish to get escape from this situation anyhow. The reason is because you are not ready to accept what comes to your way of life, you are not going to accept which you don’t like. If this is a case with you, then you aren’t living a life of quality.
A Life of Quality –
When you don’t feel good in adverse situation, it means you are losing quality in your life. I am saying this because it’s not possible that we remain with only happiness in our life or we remain with something which we want in our life. If it was true then many politicians, actors and other eminent personalities of this world wouldn’t have gone to jail. They were having power, money and everything but despite all that they couldn’t ignore the law of universe. They had to abide by this law. Law of universe will keep presenting us funny moments and pain moments time to time. Now, it’s upon us that we accept both of these without having any doubt in our mind. This is going to happen with more and more practice and when you are able to do this you are going to feel life of quality.
References from Ramayana & Mahabharata –
Not to speak of present time, even kings of different territories didn’t escape from the law of destiny. Speaking of ‘Ramayana’, Bhagwan (Lord) Ram, who was the king of entire state, despite all this richness and facility, he had to go for exile for 14 years. He had to accept the law of destiny & the moment of pain but that was his kindness that he didn’t consider it as moment of pain. In fact, he just considered it as a part of life, a part of his journey any went for exile without any dispute in his mind.
In another reference, ‘Pandavas’ from Indian epic ‘Mahabharata’ had to go for forest exile for 13 years. Pandavas were considered as the best warrior on earth that time and were belonging to King’s family as well but despite all these facilities they had to serve forest exile for 13 years. They had to accept which they weren’t expecting before.
Scope of Acceptance –
Scope of this method is applicable on every person of any age. If you are a parent of 5 or 6 years old child, then you must do growing up of your child in such a way that he doesn’t hesitate to accept any situation, any diverse situation in his life. Once you would be able to do this for your child or when his base is going to be strong in such a way then he will keep proving himself as a warrior in real life.
Same way, if you are in your adult age or professional age, there as well, you are going to face many situations where you find it hard to accept things. Once you will follow above method and start accepting diverse situations, you are going to feel that a dalimma which used to be there in your mind all the time, has gone away. Now, you are free from unwanted obstacles of your mind because your mind is clear, now your mind is matching with the world’s mind. Therefore, everything is going to be very easy for you and when everything is easy for you, it is called a ‘Life of Quality’.
Same thing goes in old age, if you have practice the above method during your adult or growing age, then you will not find any difficulty in old age as well because you were in practice of it. In case, you didn’t practice it before then you could start applying this method. Quality of life doesn’t belong to any age limitation as it is never too late to learn.
Concluding Part –
While concluding I just want to add that we are not advocating to get quality only through this way and don’t go for the things which creates some happiness and fun in your life. You should definitely go for all that provided you are aware of it’s limits and mode. Be constructive and confident with your thoughts and belief. Consciously live the moments or situations which come in your life no matter what’s the nature of these. To complete the quality process, you could share it with others once you get it in your life.
