If it all came back to you, would you embrace it?

Our lives are getting complex by the day. Materialism, is one of the reasons. It has seeped into the day-to-day life like never before. I do not intend to communicate that materialism is bad. It really is not. It is an integral part of our existence. Consuming worldly pleasures is part of our lives, and we must. The Universe or Supreme Being – whichever name you address Him or Her with – has given us a world that is full of materials that can either be consumed in their natural form (like fruits) or be further changed in shape, form, and at times, the very inherent nature to make items or products of desire. Take mobile phones, for instance. Mobile phone technology has enabled humans to stay in touch better and faster.  I am taking the liberty to list a select few of them below.

Create Memories As You Go

Human creativity has already, and become even more, unbounded. But, in all of this, we tend to disconnect with ourselves, and we do not even realize that it is happening. This is not desirable for many reasons. One of them being us ignoring (if not forgetting) our life experiences. Those small and big successes and failures that make us who we are today, especially the small ones. Mobile phones offer a very well-though ecosystem that allows us to document and share our experiences. Yet, we forget those priceless memories and loose ends that could be tied (or could not be). But, our mind has its own way of bringing those memories back. And when those memories comes back to us, they appear strange, unknown. Almost like re-discovering that photograph in the attic that you don’t remember existed. This, to some degree, causes us to resist accepting those memories to begin with. At times, we find it nearly impossible to accept them at all. But, we must. Because that discomfort is short-term, and in the long-term, acceptance of those memories will only bring peace. So, go ahead, embrace those memories for they are a part of you. And, you will find that you can enjoy all the material pleasures even more.

If you could change your face, would you?

Who are we? What makes us who we are? Such questions have such a deep meaning, finding an answer to them would take a lot more than introspection. Given the banality and routine of our lives, we neither have the time, nor the energy to explore the deepest parts of ourselves. While we would love to embark upon this thrilling journey into discovering our own selves, we choose to take the short cut – we end up focusing on our external appearance. How do we look? We focus on buying a host of cosmetics by major brands like:

Accessories

We do not stop at that. We want accessories like Armani Eyeglasses (GIORGIO ARMANI EYEGLASSES GA 513 0NKE HAVANA SAND) or a Zara jeans (Zara Man Men’s Distressed Straight Slim Fit Denim Jeans Blue Imported from USA) or a Gap sweatshirt (GAP Men’s Cotton Sweatshirt (12292879609_Pinot Noir 796_Large); watch by Giordano (Giordano Analog Rose Gold Dial Women’s Watch-2861-22) or Fossil (Fossil Q FTW2108 Marshal Digital Multi-Colour Dial Men’s Watch) or Armani (Emporio Armani Chronograph Off-White Dial Men’s Watch-AR2074I); fragrance by Hugo Boss (Hugo Boss Femme Eau De Parfum Spray for Women, 75ml) or Yves Saint Laurent (Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’Homme Eau De Toilette Spray – 3.3-Ounce); and so on.

Does this bring us a sense of fulfilment that we seek through working on our outward appearance? Yes. It does. Because we are God’s own creation, and it is important to take care of ourselves. It is the least we can do. We – you – are beautiful the way we have been created. Now I ask again, if you could change your face, would you still want to?
