Life is action, not contemplation
Birth and death between times is called life.
When he came out on land from his mother stomach from that minute is start his life with sad or happy. That life is end on his died.
Life offers many opportunities to us to succeed and see if closely. But action is required for it. Goethe, a German philosopher rightly remarked that `life is action, not contemplation’. Even Charles Darwin proved that life is a continuous struggle for the `survival of the fittest’. One who is not suitable perishes-this is the nature’s law. Action is necessary to adjust ourselves in any possible circumstance dreams are the necessary propellers but life it self is not merely dreams or a reverie. Sitting on chair, brooding, man would never have been able to reach the moon. But man thought, imagined and strove. Consequently we reached the hitherto unknown heights. Thus a life of thought and reflection will be futile if man does not try to make it come true in real life. That does not mean contemplation is futile and vain. No. in fact all great ideals and philosophies are the out come of great men’s contemplation. But these philosophies and ideals would easily have been forgotten, had they not been applied to real life. Who could remember Marx if Lenin had not motivate people to follow communism? Rousseau’s name would certainly have been rubbed out of our memory, had France not accepted socialist democracy. Lives of various great men and eve religious leaders endorse the view that action is not only natural instinct; it’s also the essence of life.
*The control of the senses is the first and foremost discipline for progress in spiritual life. Wise people turn their sense inward and realize the immoral self. Our sense –organs drag us towards the external world of pleasure, like uncontrolled horses.
