Everybody in this world is an achiever, or it is what i’m forced to believe… I have seen some years of LIFE myself, and over the years i have come to believe one one harsh reality of life… I can broadly classify everyone i met as Winners or Pretenders…. The people categorized as Winners can be Pretenders as well (How else would you expect them to win in THIS WORLD), but the Pretenders can never be Winners (One can never truly win if what you offer is what you do not have).
So one might ask me, How do you categorize them if the above statement is a dead end both ways.?, then remember dear readers, i never said the “Harsh Reality” i mentioned was the above, The reality i’m talking about is this :-
In this world we exist in and in this skin we live in, Everyone is a Pretender and No one is a Winner.
One might ask me again,
“How is everyone a pretender, And hows is no one a Winner, surely we can name a couple of people in present or past as being winners.?”
We’ll then let me take you through the truth i so mentioned in the above lines, We are human, that’s the ultimate definite truth we can be sure of in this world, and in being so have a concept of the mythical Perfect Being, without going into details of who and where are these “Perfect Beings”, i only want to shed light on the emotion with which we have conceived the idea of the perfect being, this emotion has a hard coded belief that we are imperfect and with every passing day are tending to become the perfect being, this proves of how we are and nothing we can do or say can be ultimate. We as humans make mistakes, and have our relative flaws in ourselves, same or different. So in a lifetime of deeds and actions, thoughts and words, relations and professions, we do miss out on some aspect that we cover up by pretending otherwise. A thought we hid, a cookie we stole, a idea we stole, or just being upright rude or arrogant, we do make mistakes, and try to cover tracks big or small, that takes care of the first part of the question.
The second half similarly follows, One cannot be a complete Winner in all aspects of his or hers life. Where we excel in studies, we might not contribute to good, where we might love our people, we might just end up hating the neighbourhood, where we might create good, we might bestow some destruction. Blessed are the people who do not face the modern world, they are free from its evil, “They have won” is the last thought in there mind before passing away peacefully. The world as we know it has made life easier for us, giving tons of comfort, only by taking comfort away from some other. The world runs on an equation, there’s nothing we can create on either side without taking away from the other. Thus if we acquire the wealth, luxury,love , support etc from the world around us, it is only because it was taken away from some other as non of it can be created, Not at least in the so called Modern Society. Thus, no one can be the Ultimate Winner, an Alchemist winning everything without heeding the Law of Equivalent Exchange.
I’m not being aggressive though, mind you dear readers, this is applied to what we have brought the world to, it was different once upon a time, or so i would like to belief, to give myself a chance to repent for what i have done to the world or for at least my part of it.
Funny thing is , The Winner is a mythical term that we cant find in this world, and The Pretender on the other hand, plenty which vary in dimensions. There are people who pretend to do or say, then there are pretenders who pretend to know the first ones are pretending, lastly are the pretenders who pretend that they DO NOT know if the first kind were pretending. Convoluted your mind … Ain’t it.? 🙂 🙂 Well not that much , As i once remember reading this and i quote :-
“The Idea of Perfection is so imperfect.”
Moral, in this life, in this world, we pretend to do, we pretend to know (even if we don’t know) and we pretend not to know (even if we know)… The struggle of life is to get ourselves into one of the categories, The first kind gets glory, the second kind gets fame, the last kind are the wisest who live longer 😉 Funniest fact is.. all of the types believe they are winners. Dint i tell you to begin with, The world is split between Winners and Pretenders…
