Thought Capsule -2

Elizabeth Gilbert

"We are made up of so many layers of our family histories, ancestries, karmic accounts from several past lives, influences from entanglements with different souls that have crossed our paths, a mixed concoction of what we have ever seen, felt, tasted, touched, heard, judged, all the rational and irrational reasons that have made us what we are." - Elizabeth Gilbert in 'Eat Pray Love'

Change any of the variables that have resulted in what, who, how and where you are at present and you have no way to know how life would have been. Had I not been to certain places, I really don't have any idea how life would have shaped itself. Had I not been to Mysore, I seriously have no way to fathom how my life would have been right now. Had I not got my friends for life, I don't know who would have entered my life then.

I sometimes want to view it, at least on a virtual canvas, how life would have been, had some incidents not happened at all. I would not have been the person I am today.
