The different colors of life

By Indira Chongbang
The destiny of life is always far beyond our desires, always outside of our imagination. Sometimes life becomes a flower without fragrance, like a garden without sunshine and like a smile without happiness. Nothing is permanent in this life except death, that is why we must take everything easily, happily, and patiently. Only the patience and self-resilience strengthen our feeling then we come to see again the new colors come to sprout, the fragrance of colorful flowers awakens new vigor and enthusiasm in life.

Life is a combination of different colors. The rainbow is beautiful as it is a mixture of several colors likewise life also becomes gorgeous when it fills with various colors. Life without color is tasteless, plain, and indulgent. Only the color makes life to stay evergreen. It also changes as the seasons’ change. When life blooms with the greenery of spring, it will be the moment of happiness and joy. When life blooms with the falls of winter, we must cope with the bitter and sour experience of life. Sometimes life hops with the stream of pleasure, sometimes it faces the hitches of rain. Countless moments of life that change with the seasons, this is how the colors of life keep on changing.

Life is not what we think it is but, it is what we experience in it. The destiny of life is always far beyond our desires, always outside of our imagination. Sometimes life becomes a flower without fragrance, like a garden without sunshine and like a smile without happiness. Nothing is permanent in this life except death, that is why we must take everything easily, happily, and patiently. Only the patience and self-resilience strengthen our feeling then we come to see again the new colors come to sprout, the fragrance of colorful flowers awakens new vigor and enthusiasm in life.

In fact, we are all the artists in this world who make the beautiful crafting with our own perfect color. What color to use to beautify our life is our own art and our creations, because everyone’s choice is different. Some people like bright colors while others like light or pale colors. In the same way, we can decide for ourselves what makes us happy, but some things are far beyond our reach that we can’t control. We are forced to live by accepting the truth when the situations go against our will. These realities become the softest color of life, the moments without longing, and without exhilaration. Having persistence courage is the most important dimension to cope with these situations, which continues to give us the nerve to face many challenges.

If we widen our vision and mind, everything seems beautiful whether it is in sorrow or in happiness. The life is the mingling of different colors which contains, sorrow, laughter, crying, and many more. If we keep up learning new arts in today’s imperfect life it will be moved towards perfection again tomorrow. These are the innumerable colors of life that adorn life that we need to dig deep with the intelligence and wisdom.

This precious time of life is wasted if you are always saddened by the situation beyond your control. Time does not come back to you and it is not in your control. So, we have to learn to have faith and patience instead of having regret and grief. May today’s captive life soon be able to dance in the open theater, may today’s tragic fantasy be filled with laughter tomorrow. May peace prevails not only in me but in the whole world, may the life of all be filled with the color of happiness. This is my best wish to all.
