We are all Explorers

I’m just trying to put my thoughts in front of you all on exploration, its importance and why do we explore? I’m not writing any fundamental things about exploration and what we should explore and how should we explore. I don’t think that telling this kind of things make any sense as this topic is individualistic and too broader to explain. I’m not even trying to convince anyone that we should explore the things around us or the things which are out of our reach. I’m just expressing my own views on this topic, that’s all! Some of you might agree with my thoughts fully, some of you might agree to some extent and some of you might not agree with me at all. In any case, if you wish then you can add your comments or thoughts after reading this post. So here I go!

It’s cool to be the first one to go where no one else has been before. Don’t you think that? HAHA! In my perspective, we are all explorer, including all other living beings. Exploration is much more than going to a place where no one else has been before. Exploration is a basic instinct to survive. Exploration is a way to deepen the mysteries, it’s a way to understand this world and the whole universe. Exploration provides purpose, seeks purpose and defines it. With exploration we become and we are always becoming. We are all explorers, we are all seekers. We keep on exploring things around us and sometimes we didn’t even notice that we are exploring something, something which is around us or maybe not. Our mind is always ready to explore the things, we just have to put our will and have to discover our area of interest. When you travel to a place where you haven’t been before then what comes in your mind? Don’t you want to explore that place? Don’t you want to find out what’s there in that place? Exploration is always followed by curiosity; curiosity is a trait of exploration. When we explore something it certainly raises some newer questions in our mind and to find the answers we have to explore more till we get our answers. The more we explore the more we learn and the more we gain knowledge.

Exploration has no limit. Some people like to explore their imagination by looking at all the angles of their imagination. Exploration can be of any type and it can be anywhere, like a person walking down a beautiful park full of people and then that person tries to explore that area automatically, that person tries to explore its every parts with some different perspective and gaining some knowledge from it. Some people tries to explore the world by taking photographs of the world around them. Exploration can be physical, it can be mental or it can be anything. Some people tries to explore themselves and some tries to explore the world by traveling to different places. For exploring anything, it doesn’t matter that our hands can reach that place or not, our eyes can see it or not and our bodies can travel there or not. We are always fascinated by the universe and therefore, we always try to explore it and it doesn’t matter whether we can reach out there or not, we will still be exploring it like always. Some people like to explore the laws of universe, physics and other. There is always something you can explore about the laws of universe and physics. Who knows, one day these laws might fall but for now, they are still what make our universe go round.

There is a special kind of pleasure we get from exploration. Going out to a some place and then returning back to the home but by some other route which is unknown to you and this will makes us feel good that there is another way to return back to the home and that’s what exploration can teach us. Exploration is the ability we have which let us to see beyond our horizon and beyond ourselves to ensure a future for our civilization. Exploration is in are thoughts, it’s in our behavior, it’s in the behavior of all the living beings. Our civilization will one day may live on Mars and beyond when we will run out of resources on Earth or maybe we will find some other alternative ways or things. So one have to explore to find new resources and areas which will help us to survive anywhere whether on this planet or on somewhere else. By exploration, one day we may find out the answers to some of the questions about our own origins. How did life begin on Earth? Is there life on any other planet? How did the universe originally form? How did the moon, our planet and the other originally form? Exploration has no limit, from microscopic to the macroscopic, from ocean to the universe, from bacteria to the space, all are in the field of exploration.

I was just wondering…

                                     I was just wondering how one can live his life to the fullest and this made me to put this blog in front of you all. There are many things which we can do to live our life to the fullest, why settle for anything less if you deserve something better? We all deserve the best! And to get the best out of our life, we all should keep developing ourselves. Try to find pleasure in everything around you, it’s a beautiful world if you know there to look. Love every bit of your life to the fullest whether it is pleasant or not as it belongs to you, somehow you are the man who is responsible for creating all these moment around you! Always relish in the little moments because these little moments make your life complete.  Spending time with your family and friends! Snuggling under warm covers on a  rainy day! Ice cream on a hot day! A kiss with your loved one! A walk by the park! The gentle breeze on your face! Sometimes, getting drenched in the rain! Quiet, alone time! Calling someone after a long time. Feel all these little moments. And if possible, try new things! What’s something you would normally not do? Get out of your comfort zone, try something different. It can be something simple like instantly planing to visit a place with your friends, taking a new route, any surprise to your friends or to your family members, trying a new food item which you have never tried, picking up a new interest or hobby. There are many things; you can try something bigger, like studying a different field, traveling to a place you have never thought to visit, exploring any unknown place. You know, there is a lot to explore, there is a lot to learn and experience.
 
As Steve Jobs said  ~ “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
 
                                     Life is too short to do anything else you don’t like. Sometimes, situation doesn’t favor us to do the things we love to do but never give up easily. Try to do the things you love because who knows maybe someday you will get what you want! We all have certain things in our life which gives us fulfillment and happiness, try to spend time on those things. Never stop learning from your surrounding, there is something to learn from everything you see, hear and experience. This includes everything like your mistakes, misconceptions or anything you did wrong in your past, i mean if any! Then learn from all these things and surely it will going to make you better person than you were in past. I think, nobody is perfect and practice can’t make anybody perfect but practice is one of the thing which makes you better and more better. So, never stop practicing to become a better person. There is one more thing which can help you to become a better person and that is criticism. Try to learn from criticism and be open to criticism but don’t be affected by it. Criticism is meant to help you be a better person. There are many things which can contribute to our betterment. And If there’s anything you don’t like about someone, say it to him in the face or otherwise, don’t say it at all. Backbiting is not a nice thing to do. We are human beings and there are lots of things which we face in our day to day life, try to understand and feel another person’s feelings! Try to be empathetic. If everyone only see life from his own perspective, we’ll forever be close-minded and insular. See things from others’ shoes. Be a compassionate person! Show compassion and kindness to everyone around you.
 
As said by Dalai Lama ~ “Compassion is something really worthwhile. It is not just a religious or spiritual subject, not a matter of ideology. It is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Compassion and love are precious things in life. They are not complicated: they are simple, but difficult to practice.”

 
                                   I must want to say this that without creativity and art earth would be just dull. Fall into any kind of art. Art can make our life more bearable, art is a way to grow our soul and art can teach you many things about the life. And creativity is one of the important thing which makes us superior than other living beings on our planet. Creativity makes our life different. So, focus on creation! Think about what you can bring to the world, and try to create that! There will be a lot of people you will be going to appreciate your creativity and art. Bring changes in yourself, we live in a world where we have so many things to do, there are so many taboos in our society, there are many things we want to change in the world. As in a simple words, if you want a change then be the change. The only person you can change is yourself! Stop expecting others to behave in a certain way. Rather than demand that others around you change, focus on changing yourself.
 
                                Let the people who’ve touched you know of your gratitude towards them, so express gratitude. If you don’t tell them, they’ll  never know; expressing gratitude makes a positive connection. Let loose and have fun! hanging out with your friends or your family! Sing at the top of your lungs! Dance in the rain! Watching movie with your beloved one! Sometimes, breaking your limits! Getting into nature and feel it! Smile more. Are you reading this with a straight face? Smile and have fun. It’s only through being the best we can live our life to the fullest! Love yourself, you are the person who have to live with you for the rest with your life. Treasure and love yourself!  Love others,  be grateful for all the people around you because they help you to grow. They enrich your life experience. At last I want to say, Love life, living a life is fascinating experience; and I believe our life should be composed of these five things: Live, Explore, Learn, Create and Share!
Always Remember: If life is hard, so live it hard and enjoy it to the fullest!
