She was always remembered in every family gathering when her daughter arrived. Her every action, all her mannerisms and all the conversations that she shared reminded of her mother. Just like her mother, she was the heart of all gatherings and there was no one in the room who did not enjoy her presence. Even after 10 years of Aunt Mary’s demise, she lived in her daughter and every person she met throughout her lifetime.
Hey there it’s Iris,
Since childhood we have known that we are mortals which is true until we believe in a theory that proves our immortality. I know it can be surprising to a lot of you and I don’t deny that it’s completely subjective to how you perceive it but if you welcome this conjecture with open heart and mind then I am sure you will appreciate a greater responsibility which is much more than life itself and For this it’s vital to understand who you are.
Over our lifetime we all go through remarkable physical changes from a little baby to an adult and ultimately to a grey hair 180 centimetres high structure. Biologically, our cells gets replaced every 20 years making no sign of memory between these age brackets due to which when you look back you won’t be able to recall who you really were 20 years ago. Generally, a compliment made on physical characteristics feels rather superficial or emotionally detached because somewhere deep down we know that we are more than what others can see.
Now imagine you lost your memory, you don’t remember a single experience of your life… will you still be you? The answer is yes. It is still you. If you get two options today to choose from having the memory intact while being a completely differently responsive individual and losing your entire memory while you still hold same values as before then most of us will choose the later.
Why so? Because in the fullness of time, though we all carry the same names throughout our lives but what actually makes you…You, is your character.
Losing your body and mind into ashes doesn’t cease your existence because it’s your character which defines who you are, it stays and lives on forever. Delighted with joy, Rosy did not know that just like her, her mother also reminded of her mother.
There lived two brothers, they were identical twins. They went to same schools and had almost all experiences alike. No one could ever identify any difference between the two from surface level but just 2 to 3 mins after sitting with them, a person was naturally inclined to Peter. They were so same yet so different. Peter was a man of character and values while Henry, Let’s just say he contrasted his brother’s personality. Years have passed since they left yet everyone in their family remembers Peter, a lot of them have inherit so many traits from him without realizing. After all these years, while Uncle Henry is just in the frames and photographs, Peter lives in the family hall forever.
We all remember Princess Diana for her beauty but somewhere we all are subconsciously inclined towards the purity of her character, her values and the innocence with which we lived. Regardless of her mesmerizing beauty, it is her aura which stays in the hearts of billions forever.
It’s natural to wonder what you will ever receive by learning about this truth while you live and I have two answers which hold equal importance. The first reason is that, when you know you are much more than how you look and what you know, it doesn’t confine you to these shallow niches because it’s not who we are, never is, can never be and the second reason is a much of a reminder to focus on what REALLY matters.
Enhancing your character is an underrated and unsaid duty which lives with us the moment we take our first breath. Somehow our urge to be immortal will remind us of our mortality, its contradicting but once understood deeply will make sure you are remembered for your good in the limited time of your continuance.
So now, when you wish to live on forever…Remind yourself that you dont have much time on this planet ,what stays is how you lived while you had a chance to mark your footprint.
