No point trying to squander your precious lifetime by taking it too seriously

Let’s not take Life too seriously. Just live it. And forget about it!

A story in the papers this morning set me thinking. The family of a dead man in Trichy has charged the local gasifier crematorium of the Trichy Corporation of not handing over his ashes to them. The family claims that the ashes they have received are not of their man’s and believe that there has been a “mix-up”, “some foul play” and demand a “DNA Test” by the Corporation to confirm and assure them that those ashes indeed belong to their dead relative.

I couldn’t help chuckling to myself as I read that story.

Does it really matter what we do about our dead after they are gone, after they are cremated or buried with dignity? Think about it, they are just mere ashes. We came from dust and unto dust we all will return – this is the simplest way to understand Life. That is all there is to it. It was a choice-less birth (none of us has asked to be born), and it is often an exit which we don’t quite plan. We come with nothing. We go with nothing. Then why this drama – of success, failure, wealth, ego, relationships, religion and what not – during this lifetime? What’s worse, as is apparent in the Trichy crematorium story, is that the drama continues even after someone’s dead and gone!

I can’t think of a better way to live than to simply let go. Don’t take Life too seriously. Nothing will survive. No one will survive. So, just be easy on yourself. And on people around you. If you can solve your problems, do so. If you can’t, let them be. If you can get along with people, great. If you can’t let them be and you just move on. If you have money, you can buy a few things you want. If you have no money, be sure that no matter who you are, your needs will be taken care of. Not the way you want your needs to be met, but the way Life has designed to meet them. This is what Life is all about. So, don’t waste your precious lifetime trying to make your ever-perishing Life perfect. Just let go and be happy!
