Boyhood | Life In Fast Forward

It is believed that devil is in the details. When we get too engrossed in the details of life, we lose sight of life as a whole. This lack of perspective invites inferior human characteristics of impatience, mistrust and helplessness.

For we forget that life can change courses in moments and also remain the same for ages. It is sort of dualistic in nature, much like the physics of light. Like light is different when viewed from different prespectives – a wave and a particle – life follows suite.

It is the timely detachment from everyday details and meditation ont he grander perspective to the whole life – that hold the key a lot of life’s deeper troubles.Then we see how much change has essentially occured between two separated points of time instead of believing nothing really ever changed. And that nothing really ever changes.

This is so because the time interval at which we experience life evryday is so short that we soon become accustomed to the gradual changes that occur around us. Tha mundanities take a toll onto us and the commonly shared world views do nothing to help us see the bigger picture. And very soon, the time we have is over!

Oh, what a tragedy to have lived through every moment and yet never to have lived at all!

Experience the incredible power of the moment, which when viewed from appropriate perspectives, can gift us with such fulfilling lives. Experience it in this wonderful story of a family. Grow with its kids and parents through the decade that it has been shot through. Real characters, real aging, real life – well, almost! Look back at the life of how a boy turns into a man, all of a sudden and yet every single day.

And in the meantime, pause to relflect on your own growth from a boy to a man or a girl to a woman? It is quite satisfyingly haunting, but is sure to leave you with a smile on your face!
