Inspired from 'Looking for Alaska' by John Green

"Everything. The chair I’m sitting on. It was built and so it will fall apart. I’m gonna fall apart, and you’re gonna fall apart. The cells and the organs and systems that make you – they come together, grow together and so must fall apart.” – John Green

I love the above quote so much. It is true. One day we all will fall apart. Someday no one will remember that you or I ever existed in this life because memories fall apart too. This blog, this whole lot posts… These journeys, these pictures… One day, not so fast nor so slow, I too, will disappear from this world. I will have no chance to write and you will have no chance to read. This blog may leave untouched and will be forgotten. No matter what the consequences will be, it will never stop me from writing and fill this up with stories or whatever things that I want to share with you. Even if it’s just a bit or a while that it can make you happy or help you, I am happy enough.

Forgiveness creates peace and happiness - Me :)

“Suffering was caused by desire and the cessation of desire meant the cessation of suffering. When you stopped wishing things wouldn’t fall apart, you’d stop suffering when they did.” – Buddha

I write this not because that I’m dying, nor I’m unhealthy. In contrary, I’m very healthy now, as strong as a bull hehe… It’s just a realization that one day we will all fall apart. Live in present and cherish the moment as nothing lasts forever. You will forget me very soon after I leave this world and it doesn’t really matter for me. Just treat it like a dream, a dream that you ever know or meet me in this life, but this dream will vanish as soon as you wake up. Forget me, forget my existence. If we have enough good karma, let us meet again in next life, for better or for worse :)

“So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.” For here, Alaska was defintely a hurricane in the labyrinth.

John Green quotes are awesome.It always resonates with something or the other.Even if the story line is ok I found some great thoughts and meanings to be pondered upon especially towards the end of the book. So if the book is a light read it definitely do not fail as a philosophical one.

Nice post!
