Illusions and illusionists not only work up our imagination but make us feel like we are transcending between reality and magic. Illusions are nothing but watching the world through closed eyes. But do we really have to be seated in a huge auditorium enveloped in grand bourgeois tapestries and view a dim lit stage to witness an illusion being performed?
The other day I found a butterfly hovering around a printed flower on my bed sheet and then settling on it. It would fly about and settle on the flowers on the sheet again and again. The moth got me thinking there is an illusionist within all of us.We sail through our days, months and lives in hopes of a perfect future which is most of the time a perfect illusion. Some of us often sing songs out loud under the illusion that we sound like a nightingale. But these illusions can't be categorized as falsehood, because they are nothing but a medium to add a little cheer to our days. They act like favorable wind, pushing our little boats towards the ultimate destination.

One day fly

I remember once reading somewhere that one must dance like no one is watching and live everyday like its your last. But quite recently I came across a living creature who actually lives by these words, during a summer shower that took place a few days back. After the rain a horde of mayflies (one day fly ) just rose up in the air and appeared to be dancing with joy, until each one of them collapsed to the ground and slowly died.

Its probably because they have just one day to live that they want to live it with joy, but we have been gifted with lots of days, then why wait till the end to start living? why not live every second, why not live and love our life? Whether we have a kings life or a pauper's,why bother about what ranking our life stands at, as long as its our own and we have the undisputed authority to make it beautiful according to us?

So maybe take a lesson from the one day flies that we must live our life in a way that you'll never wake up one day and regret and say, it was all a waste :)
 njoi life, luv it :)
