Yesterday night I went out with one of my friends and had drinks from a low class bar, the bar room was filled with the fragrant of cigarettes and I was just enjoying the white color smoke filled in that room. I was happy that the smoke was partially hiding some of the cracks in the roof and adding an interior design effect in that room. Suddenly my friend disturbed me with a question – ‘do you believe in life after death?’ I was not sure what my friend was thinking of all those time and from where he got that question. I heard this topic before but not much thought on that.
But yesterday the question was specific to me and unfortunately my friend was expecting an answer. As usual, I was confused and I started thinking – do I have an option (Preferably user friendly) to choose life after death? Who is controlling my life? – is it by myself? Is it by my friend? Is it by some unknown power? Is it by destiny? or by some xyz?
Good, if my life has been controlled by someone else, then I don’t have to do much than just live. If I’m the only person controlling it, then I can decide whether I want to live after death or not. One of the other options is; my life can be controlled by me and an unknown power. Then it is become competitive, who is having more control? me or the unknown power? Thoughts became wild and I don’t have answers for my friend. But the bar man was clear in his thoughts that he wants to send us out, close the bar and go home.
When I woke up in the next day morning, it was 10.30. I was supposed to be at office by 8 AM and I missed two early scheduled meetings. I understood, now I have to take control, at least for rest of the day to avoid further damage.
