The Other Face Of Life

Reality Or Incongruity ...

Some study hard and graduate with freshly minted degrees but choose to do hawking
Others with post-grad degrees, prefer to drive taxis

Healthy individuals cannot find time to workout and keep fit whereas bedridden patients wish they can, or had done their part

Cheating spouses, enjoys their escapades, but wished they can come clean instead of living in fear of being discovered! Multiple households do not always equal exponential happiness; the thrills without the spills

Some cheat their way up the corporate ladder while some sleep their way up. They sell their soul to the devil and is slaved to their position. When vanity and money can buy their souls, they are just digits in Society

Yet others are fast to acknowledge acccolades but avoid responsibilities; professed to be upright but decay inside. When their misdeameanors are exposed, they deny wrongdoing hoping their false fascade will hold

If you are the chosen one, your life is made. If you select yourself, you struggle and fight to make a living; you make your life

The materially rich has ivory tower, the mindfully rich has blessings; less well off but happy

The Hermit Kingdom, DPRK telecast live World Cup match between DPRK and Portugal; the humiliating defeat of 7-0 was a tragedy, aka reality check, as a victory would have embolden their war antics

A mental health community survey done in Singapore showed that 16.6% of adults in Singapore suffer from minor mental disorders. This means that about 1 in 6 adults will suffer from some form of common mental health disorder in their lifetime. Most lead normal lives and behave normally. It is just the other face of life less travelled

Everyone of us has a page not seen; unknown to all but not the AlMighty

Some day the truth will prevail and the dues paid


You can cheat, you can lie. If it is not meant to be, it will never be
If unsure, look at the mirror, smile and ask "Will he be smiling tomorrow"?


All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him.

If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.


Buddha
