Obsessions:A Human privilege

Like intellect and thought, another privilege bestowed on us by Nature is the ability to get obsessed with few special things. Obsession is the deepest human trait, and is one of the most intriguing attributes of us.

I believe that, being able to get inspired by any special thing, and to pursue it with immense passion is a privilege. Obsession is one of the things which has driven people to create history and make a mark on all our lives.

At personal levels, each one of us would definitely have few precious things to be obsessed about, and which would channelize our thoughts, efforts and actions converge to the perpetuation of these obsessions. And, this is is one of the most basic traits we as humans should exhibit.

But, while conversing with people, regularly and quite often, I get to hear almost a remorseful confession-

I don't remember anything that I have been deeply passionate about in my life...

This is a ubiquitous scenario in today's world of haste and hate, where people seldom find time or the patience to pursue something they really love. This is unnatural and by the virtue of this anomaly it deteriorates the quality of life we live....

Find time, inculcate patience and grow passion to do what you really want to do.

And, this is the only thing you are obliged to do for being born as a human :)
PS: The image above- The Old Guitarist is one of my favorite paintings by Pablo Picasso. A legend, obsessed by his creativity pursued the same. Look at the mark he's left behind on all of us :)
