It sounds very simple, doesn’t it? You immediately feel intellectually insulted by the question. You even want to defend yourself and ask: “What do you mean whether I know what I want or not, of course I know what I want!” However when you turned to your deep self you hear endless noise, where what you once wanted and dreamed is neither visible nor so loud. You are no longer sure what you really want in life.
No, that is not right! Of course you know what you want in life. You just need to quiet that noise! How? Well, simple. Turn off the TV, turn off your phone, turn off your computer, stay still, let those who have conquered your life, talk loud, threaten you with withdrawal of their highly conditional love and respect a little more, let your fear of popularity, criticism die slowly, kill all your viral worries quietly somewhere far from everyone. It sounds easy doesn’t it? Well, it is easy. There isn’t a single thing that is hard in this life when you have a strong desire to do it.
Do you have a strong desire to discover what you desire most in life? Or do you still want to follow the crowd and let them define you? Do you still want to make endless effort to fit in their definition of you? Can you see how knowing what you want in life is strongly linked to knowing who you are and how much love and respect you have for who you are?
Yes, you do but it hurts to accept the fact that you let the song of your heart be quietened by the loud crowd. Yes, you do because your heart is still secretly singing the same song while you pretend to be happy to sing the song of the crowd. No it is not late, it is never late to sing it out loud. It is never late to be who you truly are. It is never late to stop the pain of denying who you are. You can do it! You can sing the song of your heart! And sing it loud!
