    Do we engage in action to escape the silence of meditation, or do we meditate to escape the confusing ambiguity of action?

    Our inner world, our dreams reflect the outer world we live in.
    One can escape, if one is brave enough and can afford. One can suicide if one is weak minded , or struggle a bit harder to survive and carry on. Some are gutsy, these do not give in; these fight back and overcome the difficulty of life and feel proud of it.
    The only thing one can do is to charter ones path initially: one can choose a simple style or a materialistic. who decides? do the parents do for their children or the children decide as they grow up?

    This is not to say that life can't take an unexpected or a rational turn at any stage in life.
