Once I saw one documentary….I cannot remember, I think it was on Tibet (I am not sure) I dont remember details..so if someone will be able to recognize what exactly I am talking about, please feel free to comment it.
However, those monks or whoever and whatever they were… They were doing some kind of artistic expression..they were using rocks, sand and I dont know what else.. From those little rocks and sand, they created beautiful pictures… And it was long work. Many people are working on it and it takes some time to get it done. When they get it done, after all that effort, sweat and pain…they look at it.. They feel satisfied because they accomplished this project…And then they destroy it. Yes. All effort that they have put, they destroy it in one second. You may ask yourself, but why? Why they are doing it?
And answer is, because they are practicing detachment. They are learning that journey is more important than end goal. They are learning that nothing will last. They are learning to not be possessive, to not hold on things.
So inspired by them, I decided to live best life ever and then make suicide….
I will not live best life ever.
Dont worry, I will not kill myself. I just find it fascinating this practice of creating something and then destroying it. That doesnt mean that you should live like this. I think the beauty of art is also sharing it with others. Why to create something if I will not share it with someone else??? Civilization is becoming richer because people are sharing their creative and artistic ideas. If we destroy everything that we create, then we would never progress. We would always remain on the same level. But however, we do have to learn to enjoy the journey, to give our best and to be completely detached from the result.
I am sorry if I gave any wrong information about that documentary….because I dont remember it. I was watching it long ago…but that doesnt even matter. What matter is the point of that documentary…
