Life & Relation…
Is life only a Relation-Oriented creation of God?
Many have tried to answer this beautiful question and yet it has remained still unanswered with a common feeling that we all beat around the bush.
“ What is Life?” “What is a Relation?”
In words of Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst,
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
If we look upon a relation from a bio-scientific angle, it is nothing but a phenomenon of an act by a person causing the reactions of the other one leading to a momentary or a lifelong relationship. Life begins with one beautiful relation that is a mother and a child. A child does not know What and Who the woman is to him/her in whose womb he has been able to get the first breath on this planet- earth. The Life starts with a bond of relation which begins without any dialogue, word, and sometimes even without any expression. There is always a white serene silence between a child and its mother. However, everything starts when there erupts the expectation and almost everyone bites the bullet.
Well, the question has remained unanswered because life is like a mirror. The image in the mirror changes but the glass, the mirror remains the same. We believe what we see in the mirror but we hardly take care of the origin of the reflection in the mirror. Yes, friends, life is like the reflection of the Great Creator and the Relation is like frame covering the mirror. The journey of life begins with unwritten and unconditional bond and progresses with tiring compulsions, impositions, frustrations, joy, jealous, prejudice, humor, terror, fear of losing and so on just because We Love to Expect More than We Can Give. This is perhaps one of the numerous reasons I would love to define the concept of “the Life & Relation” – a reaction of the acts done in the past done knowingly or unknowingly. Therefore it, sometimes, becomes imperative for all of us to follow the words of John Tillotson,
“A good word is an easy obligation; but not to speak ill requires only our silence; which costs us nothing.”
In nutshell, no one has ever succeeded to answer this question yet everyone who is born on this planet has to struggle to answer it adequately. Wei-Yin Chen Womens Jersey
