The Road To Self-Discovery
کر ڈالا قید آگہی سے ڈرا کر مجھ کو
سائیں اُلجھتا رہا آسماں اوّل کے نیچ
I was warned of the price of consciousness but never had they told me the reward. I kept jumbled in fear in this very world and forgot the skies above the one.
Life revolves around the axis of our actions, actions are assembled as ideas in our minds which drives our direction of our life. In a world full of delusions and fantasy one who finds his motive and the reason of his presence reaches high spiritual level, in addition the one who has realistic approach towards life and works for a great cause accomplishes something beyond the vision of people.
A very basic yet highly philosophical question might pope up in your mind regarding “SELF RECOVERY” that what is its practical meaning? So according to my poor and incompetent knowledge I would add that “Self Discovery is the ROOT OF EVOLUTION” which means a person evolves, a person evolves in his character, in his social life and other affairs of his life despite his beliefs and religious matters. I would not touch any topic related to “Beliefs and Religion” because people belong to different races, classes, mindsets and are highly sensitive to this issue.
The thought of Self Discovery might cause distress in you, it may take you to existential crisis and mental fatigue after all it is related to LIFE. While self-discovering, it should never be taken as a subject, it is not taught but it’s learnt, it’s an art. When a man goes through dark nights by himself all alone he realizes it as matter of fact that how much self- realization is important and how badly he was missing it.
The crisis which the world has faced over a long period of time is bowing down to a reasonless, meaningless life and surrendering to the customs of society. A rebellious heart is needed to understand the philosophy of life, life itself is very dynamic and every person derives its meaning based on events occurred in his life. People know the term self-discovery but they cannot find a way that leads them to their inner self.
Another question people arise with is that how are they going to find themselves? I think it’s quite complicated yet easy. Finding yourself needs time. Knowledge seeks Time. Vision seeks Time. High level of patience is required to reach the secrets written in the core of your HEART. You have to take a hardest walk which is a lonely walk, when all seems lost. Just like in the case of life it’s also very complicated and is not feasible, a lot of thinking, analyzing, investigation and the last but not the least A CLEAR VISION is necessary. Vision is itself a vast and philosophical topic.
The moment when the artificial, fake and fabricated version of you which is created by people around you meet the Real YOU! At that moment you’ll know and you’ll feel changes in yourself. Self-Discovery is all about finding what your heart guides you about the direction you are walking in and about changing the cosmetic version of you with the one that bleeds for humanity, the one whose heart pumps for a great cause for nation building or for the sake of humanity.
ARISTOTLE SAYS THAT,
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all Wisdom”.
