Life is a train…

 “Our life is a constant journey, from birth to death. The landscape changes,the people change, our needs change, but the train keeps moving.  Life is the train, not the station.” – Aleph by Paulo Coelho

At times, you stop your entire life waiting for something to happen.  You stop your life, believing that’s the right thing to do (and maybe it is the right thing to do – who knows?). But what we forget that around us nothing else stops.  The sun still rises, the winds still blow, construction still continues to happen, people around you continue living and evolving with each passing day … and then one day we realise … why are we standing still?  Why aren’t we going out and experiencing life like everyone else? And even if we think we have ‘stopped’ living, we realise that in reality that hasn’t actually happened … we are infact experiencing things around us with much more emotion, and that we are actually changing inside ourselves. Life doesn’t actually stop, it just keeps chugging on like a train, and each station teaches us something.  There was actually a lesson there for us …
