“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.
'Which road do I take?' she asked.
'Where do you want to go?' was his response.
'I don't know,' Alice answered.
'Then', said the cat, 'it doesn't matter.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
How true! Nothing matters at all until you know where you want to go. Sometimes we don’t think and we reach nowhere, as that is what we thought of. Then it also happens that we think we know where we want to go but we find ourselves cheated and so we stop. There are also few among us who don’t stop and finally reach an end. Mostly, the circumstances around us influence our decisions and we find that we have become a part of a huge structure.
This happens a lot.
Well, the best thing to do is to know where to go, uninfluenced by anyone; in knowing one’s own way and steadily going ahead along it; and smiling on the way as it is your way.
Knowing oneself isn't easy but is ultimate.
