"Whatever happens, happens for good."
These are powerful words, often not realised on time. But is it completely true? Isn't the fact that whatever has to happen, just happens. Good or bad is too meek a word for a powerful executioner like life. Becoming nostalgic either brings us back sweet memories or some pain. But it definitely proves that we were strong to go through the phase.
As a kid I used to read the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew detective novels. Usually, in any given plot, these teen detectives would look for clues. Most of the times, only one clue looked promising. Even if there were multiple, it would not take long enough to figure out which one was worth pursuing. Later, they came up with a series, in which the reader was given a choice which clue to pursue. If one thinks A is correct, go to page x else go to page y. It would be the same story, with multiple plots and multiple endings. It was possible that more than one plots would result in the same ending.
I heard this idea was trying to be implemented in movie halls. One can watch a movie and follow the plots which one think should be happening. In a sense, the audience is directing the movie their own way. I am not sure if it ever got implemented.
The idea is difficult and challenging. The reader/audience can easily get confused as to which path to follow and what decisions to make. I think it would only result in more chaos.
Maybe that is why the wise Creator did not give us an option of directing our own lives completely. But He did give us a mind to dream.
If I could only live a simple life and not complicate it too much with my thoughts.
If I could only live the present in flesh and mind.
If I could only turn back time and save for what I still had.
