Is life a game of extremes?
Too right? (or) Too left?
Too religious? (or) Too atheistic?
Many more such choices of ideologies that shape our lives. Each of us lie at some point on the spectrum, between the extremes, often tending towards one side or the other.
How do I ensure a balance between these extremes?
- Start with realising the side you are inclined towards.
- Qualify your decisions with questions pertaining to opposite inclination. A believer may ask “Do I miss the practicality of an atheist?”. An atheist may ask “Can i display faith while everything fails me?”.
- Relook at your choices now.
If for nothing, such reflection would atleast enable us to understand the other person better.
To a peaceful coexistence! Cheers!!
