Meetu,
/*Thoda hai thode ki zaroorat hai*/ Very true...

Praveen,
Well I guess we will never get an answer for this question

Art said...

Gayathri,
U think anybody would have an answer to this???

Mitu,
Hmmm.... Well so now I am assured that i am not the only person to think abt this

Krish said...

We want acceptance from everyone around... So, we look for the things u mentioned !

In simple words I can put it as "contentment" - at least that's what I want in life. But its a very general term and can mean various things. Questions like "what brings you contentment" is bound to arise. The answers to such questions, unfortunately, may depend on particular situations. Even I had a long list of things I wanted - but lately, I just zeroed down on this one word - part of trying to keep things simple for myself :)

"Take like as it comes"
"Life is to live, not to analyse"
"If you don't get what you like, like what you get"

While I can get more philosopical, am not much good at practising what I preach...

When basic needs are fulfilled, one would start thinking of one's desires and wants.... I want lots in life... Just can't pen down everything here for want of more space :o)

The list that you have put down seems like a poem by itself. Nice !

Praveen said...

somu,
thats correct we need to take life as it comes b'coz we can'nt change its course anyways.

i feel so much better since i had gave up hope

Akanksha Chaudhary said...

well..I dont want to sound like I know everything ..but yet Its not a difficult thing to decide what we want in life...it may be so felt when something goes wrong n not as we planned it to be..then it might segue us on to situations where we may feel 'is this what we really wanted?'..so all you need is to say to your self that..'yes this is a bit of what i wanted..' n i just need to keep doing what i did to get the entire of bit left to get what we want in life..n for that you must know what it is that you wont..
well if u have two important things in life..as my grandma says..n u have to choose one..but you cant decide..name one as head n the other one as tail...take a coin n throw it..its not when the coin finally falls that you will know your decision but when it goes up you will find your heart hoping of either one of them...

so aneways othwerwise its all on your thoughts..everything starts n ends with thoughts..right from the beginning..from that one thoughful emotion of lord..this world came in to existance..
so anyways everyone of us think like that..one should only be worried if you dont think like that at times..:)

Akshay said...

Well I think i have an answer :P

I want to live the way i want, and what i want depends on the time and circumstance. So i hope u get it: Life is about WANT of everything at everytime.

If i am totally content i did become complacent, there would be nothing to look forward to. If i want something then i will work towards it. But then life is about attitude, a certain amount of maturity that though a lot of goals are scalable they may not happen.

It is about acceptance that everything happens for a reason, and what happens is the best that ever could.

I hope i did not confuse you any furthur :D, but then yes it is about living happily which matters in the end.

hi Arathi ...

i say ' Deja Vu ' to this feeling ....

Right now, I wanna run away from everything ... i would preferably like to take refuge in a monastery for a couple of days ....

the last time i felt this way , i went to coorg ... and came back feeling good ...

i think when u travel, u r actually putting aside whatever is dragging u down .. and i feel the more u age, the harder and stronger relations and ties pull u down ...

newayz , i like the look of the lion's face in the leaf .... reminds me of a lion who tried to be but couldn't...

and yes , do u speak kannada ??

Art said...

Krish,
So u mean little of everything??

Srini,
Contentenment is again what everyone wants... Me asking what are the things in life which provide u this.. finally u get contentment thru something... depends.. sometimes thru family...friends...

Somu,
Well "Take life as it comes" thats true.... But still we do expect something in future....
Poem... ahem...ahem...Thank u thank u..

Praveen,
Ummed pe duniya kayam hai....

Akanksha,
true.... everything is in our thoughts!!!!
But these thoughts keep changing constantly...So ultimately...we dont have a conclusion!!!!
//so all you need is to say to your self that..'yes this is a bit of what i wanted..' n i just need to keep doing what i did to get the entire of bit left to get what we want in life..n for that you must know what it is that you wont..//
So this means we need a bit of everything in life... atleast we can be satisfied that we have bits of what we wanted...

Akshay,
Happily, well this is what all want... but what do u want to achieve this happiniess...how do u prioritize...what do u want more... what do u want less??
So its one level below happiniess...is where my question is....how do we attain that... I know u can ask me how do we attain peace...that again is related to so many factors....

Deepa,
Welcome to the blog!!!
Running away...is one feeling i get very frequently... but there s always someone or something which makes me feel stay on stick on....
Well relations make u stronger...u know that if u fall back there s someone to hold u...

Me too loved that lion and leaf together... has a gr8 value in my life :) thats y its in my profile and all over my blog :)

And yes i do speak Kannada.. :)

Art said...

All,
Its so nice that so many ppl have diff views..some confused like me.. Some very sure of what they want... What ever we think life s not gonna stop for us to decide!!! We just need to pause for a while and think am I in the right track... Am i getting what all i wanted in Life.. (atleast those bits)

Krish said...

Arathi,

It's not little of everything. You want to do something, have things/qualities so thatr you will be loked by people around you. Isn't it. The set of things might change as time passes.

Anyway, I read this quote somewhere:

We don't know what we want, but we are ready to bite somebody to get it.
~ Will Rogers

Prakash said...

Hi
all i want is to be happy and around people who cares about me
prakash

Art said...

Krish,
As time passes priorities change...,agree with u...

Prakash,
Again even though u want everyone to be happy... that is the way u can also be happy.. So finally u r thinking as to what u want... :) this was my question :)

Unknown said...

As I said earlier, there's no sure-fire answer to a question like "what gives you contentment?" - I've seen some people who seem to have everything under control, and know exactly what they want from life. But believe me, they DON'T. It may be somewhat easy to define contentment in terms of materialistic things needed for life. But, then again, its not the REAL things you are looking for, are they?
And yes, I am as confused as anyone else :)
