Let me tell you a story.
Once upon of time, there lived a wonderful painter, who knew nothing but language of colors. He saw his life through colors, beautiful and wonderful colors, rainbow colors. He did not earn because he needed not to. He was the king of imagination and god always fed him in some or other way. At one such time, god decided to test his endurance and faith in him, so he did not give food to this painter for few days. Painter remained hungry and lay on ground almost lifeless. A devil was passing by and saw him. He realized this as an opportunity to break one more potential and wonderful soul, and offered him food and water. But in exchange he asked his colors, canvas, brush and all older paintings. This painter was taken by his weakness and hunger that he readily agreed to exchange. This time god was shattered and had tears in his eyes because he was about to provide food and water to this painter but then devil made his offer first. Painter lost it all. He did not believe that god was still there and just testing him. Though god forgave him later but could not do anything to get his colors, brush, canvas and old paintings from devil. Painter died in oblivion though he had the ability to turn into great painter but he could not sustain the test of god.
We may think that life is unfair to us and give up our dreams and aspirations in exchange for the convenience of the life. Convenience is our greatest enemy and it kills you even if you may still be breathing. This devil is none other but fear, who is present everywhere in our society to exchange your dreams with so called convenience and security..
Do not die before living the life fully. Dream big and have courage to take on unknown path to realize those. After all, you are just traveler on earth like every one of us.
