Tycoonism “The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.”

June 9, 2009

What is life? Every person has its own views about life. Life is a risk. Everybody will have to go through it. There are two types of people: the one, who are brave and confident about life and the other, who are timid ones.

Person who has come on this earth is bound to take this risk. Brave ones take it as a challenge and cowards take it as a helpless and endless phase/birth. For them life is a tough phase and their difficulty in life is the choice. They don’t want the choice rather they want to do what they want. For them life is all disappointing because they feel that, what a day may bring, a day may take away.

These two types of people take life not as what life actually is; rather the brave ones feel life to be a great challenging struggle for them. Cowards take it as a tragic birth and dies many deaths. They feel that there are two tragedies in life: one is not to get your hearts desire and the other is to get it.

This class of people is the most discontented ones. If they don’t get their heart’s desire they feel disappointed; try to end their lives; try to get salvation by going into the jungle and convert themselves into saints and sages or even try to snatch other people’s achievements.

The challenging people feel that it would be best to wake up if you want to make your dreams come true. They take every step consciously and walk by faith not by sight. They only hope for the best and always prepare themselves for the worst. They are the true people who really feel and know what life actually is. Life means sacrificing but ‘only to some extent’. Who sacrifice their whole life for others, are also included in the cowards. Rather life should actually be a “Give and Take” relationship. Not actually in material form just as love and be loved; assist and take others help, etc, etc.

It is felt that life is love and love is life. Again love is eternal and that dies – isn’t love. So there would not be life without love. If love is dead, life also comes to an end (spiritually, not physically). Because good life can only be lead by heart’s desire. If a life doesn’t have love, it would be a compromise for a person between his body and soul.

Usually it is also said that he or she, who leads his or her life by worshipping God by heart and in true form; will be the happiest person in the world. Because happiness is also equal to God and if a person attains happiness, he attains God or vise-versa.; and that person becomes spiritual in every way. So one should try to lead a type of life or do such deeds so that God should be happy and he accepts him as his disciple who spreads his consciousness.

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, love for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves. In this age, most of the people believe in praying. Because, it is believed that prayers do not change God, it changes people. It deepens insight, increase intuitive perception and expands consciousness. Prayer puts us on God’s side.

It aligns us with life’s highest purposes, aims and ideals. Prayers opens the doors to let in God and let out self; to let in love and let out hate; to let in faith and let out fear. Life is very complicated. When you are ‘loose’ you become porous. Doors and windows open in your being and God wishes into you. When you are tense you become hard and the outlets all close. You contact with reality…’ you gather a crust around yourself.

Life exists only through death – that is the paradox. And one becomes conqueror only by surrendering – that is the paradox. In this life one can have only by losing; that is the paradox. And one can be full only when one is empty; that is the paradox….. Life is paradoxical; truth is paradoxical.

Life is all a stage. We people have brought down on this earth to play our roles in this drama of life. Only we, ourselves are responsible for our good as well as bad deeds. Life is all from conception to grave. We run through a variety of stages and circumstances in this picture of life. We even have to adopt a lot of habits; good and bad. Because of adopting or accepting these habits, we feel sometimes depressed, angry, happy, contented and many more emotions which we feel. To be depressed is a habit, to be sad is a habit, to be angry is also a habit – – – – – and naturally they are very bad and wrong habits. Life is a bundle of a lot of emotions: good or bad. It includes sorrow and happiness and a lot more feelings and emotions. To be happy again is another habit. It is the same energy that becomes unhappiness or happiness; you just have changed your habit, your outlook of life, your attitude towards others, and immediately energy starts flowing into a proper channel of life. So from this moment, one can become happy, loving, grateful, or feels celebrating.

Whatever limits us, usually we call it fate. Whatever deed you have in mind, one should do that thing quickly, and if you wait a bit, then time will suck the juice of it. Take life as a challenge rather than a compromise with your fate. Life is a mixture of every type of emotions and feelings. Man is the creator of his own destiny and destiny helps the brave. We should also examine our life properly i.e.; what we have in the past, doing in the present, and planning for the future. An unexamined life is not worth living. Everything is possible in this life. Nothing is impossible rather it is a tough role it leads. One should not assume true whatever one has seen, he should only analyze it. Life is not just logical; it is also emotional.


We live our lives the way we see it. This is not good. Rather we should make life the best part of our birth. We must see, talk and walk in life in the same direction. In order to get a successful life, you have to plan to make success happen, it comes step by step.

Failure in life is never final, only a prelude to a successful phase. Be confident that HE who has begun the good work in your life will complete it too. Never believe in “NEVER”, it does not exist. One should never, never, never, never, never give up. An aim in life is the only fortune worth. If you wish to reach the highest stages in life, begin at the lowest.

Someone has said that life is like an onion, you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes we weep. Life if uncertain. This uncertainty of life gives happiness and sorrows simultaneously. It is one damn thing after another. It does not matter how long we live our life but how we have lead it. What matters is not to add years to your life but to add life to your years.

Regarding love in life, to say that you can love one person all your life is just like saying that one candle will continue burning as long as you live. Gender wise, it is said that man’s love is man’s life a thing apart, ‘tis woman’s whole existence. 

One has no greater guilt than feeling of discontentment in life. To fill life’s hour, and leave no crevice in it for repentance or an approval one should attain happiness. Laughter, along with sadness and happiness, is another source of a beautiful life. Man alone suffers so excruciatingly in the world that he was compelled to invent laughter. Life is bound to perish. It is a creation of God which is to be destroyed one day. Life, relating to joys and sorrows, birth and death, has been explained clearly by an old saying:

A little pain, a little pleasure,

a little heaping up of treasure;

than no more gazing upon the sun;

all things must end that have begun.

 Life is adventure in experience, and when you are no longer greedy for the last drop of it, it means no more than that you’ve set your face…to the day when you shall depart…  Don’t take life too seriously because you will never get out of it alive. Life has been commenced to put and end to it. Life is said to be a little gleam of time between two eternities.

In general, there is one decree for life, youth is a blunder, manhood a struggle, old age a regret and death is the ultimate attainment of life.

Life is love and love is God, so life is also God because it is HIS creation.

In a nutshell, I would like to say that don’t loose heart, take life a challenge, for you. Don’t quit yourself from living. To fear love is to fear life, and those fear life are already three parts dead. Love your life as well as love yourself too, because love is noble and pure. It purifies us and ennobles our life. It is the very essence of simplicity. It is also the sustaining power of this world. Without love, the world would be desolate and our life would be aimless. So, you are suggested to love the life and also human beings. Just love them anyway.
