The Unstable Atom

Reflecting over life through weird, crazy, ever changing, euphoric, absurd, confused and at times impartial lenses -a journey of curiosity and questions with my two alter egos.. as I try to fall out of the stagnation of instability.. or the desperate attempt to remain..

I always look back. People tire after me telling me to let go. Well I'm not holding on to the past but i look back. Always. Be it in the street, at work, in bed (looking for demons outside the door/window/under the bed hehe like literally) or at life. Maybe it is some kind of a precautionary thing. Yesterday while talking to an old friend i said the same. However in the course of the conversation i realised that i do not lament it. I have not "held on" to the past. I've let go. But there are some places back there that are still unexplained. i strongly believe that there is always a reason some things happen, and perhaps my looking back is about trying to place the reasons in the intricate wood-work that is the past experiences. It was the nth time we were discussing the same thing yesterday and there was some more light shed on some areas that were till as of yesterday in darkness for me. So yes as time goes as you experience other things when you look back again, there will be newer things that will come to light. That's the whole thing about the fabric of time.. you never know what you will find and where past present future. The past makes you who you are today so no need to disown it. Accept it as it is already a part of you. And looking back helps me. I do not wish for things to change nor do i strive to make them change, i have let go, i let them be as they are. But that doesn't mean i cannot put myself at peace by finding things out that i want to. It does help put things in a better perspective and helps learn lessons that probably weren't learnt back then. I'm anyway a slow learner/implementer when it comes to life. :) There is so much that keeps happening and has already happened that i haven't proceed yet that i feel the need of having a sturdy pensive for myself. Gah!
