The Theory of Simplistic Approach

Life gives you so many choices. Either you select the choices or you let life make a choice for you. Either ways, you decide the course of your life; either actively or passively. The course of action that follows is a sum total of the efforts and choices made by you and the consequence of your ability to utilize your time, talent and toil.

This of course means that you are a part of a master plan set my Someone, with your own set of responsibilities, choices and perception. This still doesn't make you a slave of the so called Destiny. When people say they made choices in life and became successful, Someone was always there to give them the choices. When people say that they submitted to the Destiny, it was their choice to do so.

Eventually, we come to realise at times that we are in a flustered state with nowhere to go. Complications start taking a toll of your rational thinking and you find yourself in a vicious circle with nowhere to go. You want to hold on. You want to set lose. You want to be free. You want captivation. It's all Oxymoronic, it's Paradoxical.

You simply want to escape and subconsciously pray for a saviour to come and rescue you but hopes are low. You would wish you were never stuck up in such a situation and look for the one thing, which if reversed could lead you back to a comfortable cruising life.

But wait... Hold on... Did you just realize that you walked into a trap? Or did you just miss on the Great Overpowering Existence of the Master Plan? Standing by my statement that their does exist a Plan, a Role for all of us, isn't it still evident that we actually and literally walked into it?

If you walked into it, you made a choice. If you made a choice, you had reasons for doing so. If you had reasons for doing so, you either still relate to those reasons or have simply stopped associating with them.

In either cases, situation is reversible. Just stop thinking about the reason if you have stopped associating to it. In case you still respect the reason, or the cause, soulfully and honestly follow in without regrets and your path will be re-illuminated.

This is the Theory of Simplistic Approach, as I call it, or Simplicism. It has helped me through thick and thin. Lets hope it lights a few more paths.

Great job Chetan.
The utterly complex situations in life are presented here with a very simple solution in your article! This solution may appear simple at first glance..., but is very difficult to follow. Great people have become awry from this apparently simplistic approach of life. But yeah..., if we keep in mind this simplistic approach in mind, then we will be able 2 sort out the most perplexing problems in life for sure.But I am a bit skeptic about the time duration in which these problems will be solved. It may take years...

Hey Chetan,

I agree with your explanation of 'simplistic approach'.. but don't u think that simplistic approach is more complex in today's world?

in the world where people don't know if they have a choice at all.. people don't always choose working with a herd mentality.. they simply don't know that other options exist!!!

even if they know abt it, then also making a choice gets difficult.. in this era of information of all kinds, its is really difficult to filter out which information is actually needed to make a choice...

anyways, u hv done good work.. keep writing...

:)

Everything is in Thoughts…

It’s the game of chess that we play; rules are pre-set and we are playing against/with Him, we are given equal opportunities to make our moves, our present move decides the available opportunities for the next, and so on... two things determine our moves:

(1) Do we know where we have to go?
(2) Or do we know what He is planning for us?

The only thing that we can be sure of is- where we have to go. Rest is grey, no matter how hard we peep into... One can say 'I made this move', other would say, 'I had to make this move, no option'; bottom-line is that has become your destiny, difference lies in the perception- this was your destiny or you made it your destiny!

Chetan, think.. think hard.. harder.... The power of Thoughts; Thoughts determine your actions, actions make your habits, habits become or attitude and character..
Which decides your moves and builds your life, where lies the so called 'fate'? Your blog says it all…

Hey Chetan and Anshi, I appreciate your thoughts, and blieve both of you are partly right about what you said. But there is just an anecdote that I want to present here to make you rethink about the game of choosing and accepting the destiny.

Look at the child on the street, with deformed limbs, struggling to cross the road on a board with wheels that he is sitting on, his life is not a case of complete hopelessness, but is different from others. Had he been born in a rich family he would be living a different life, he could have greater control on his life his choices could be wider. But I won't say that now he has no choices or options left with him or he doesn't have power to make decisions, but yes his life is certainly different like every life is.

Now the matter to think is that - Is he shaping his destiny alone? Is a child dependent on wheels independently resposible for making his choices in life? Isn't there any other force acting around him? Is he living this life alone on this earth?
And atlast who is resposible for his destiny?

chetan..

seems like u've been doing a lot of thinking lately..u have managed to establish near perfect logical explanations for the seemingly muddling concepts of life..but therez an emphasis on "near" because i lost the thread midway..that could entirely be due to my limited understanding but it could also be coz u need to refine ur thoughts further...but what the heck..the hallmark of great thinker n a great writer is someone who thinks for the compelling need for it and writes for the sheer thrill of it..n not for the benefit of the reader...u've done an impressive job...keep it up!!

hey dear,
did a good job....
deep thinking with good analysis too. good for people like us who are trapped in our own decisions.

though....
you can be more systematic in organizing the thoughts...as somewhere it seems it is jumbled up

but yes, the starting was very good and impressive...

keep up the good work...
