Hope

Hope. It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.

--- The Architect in "The Matrix Reloaded"

  3. Supremus, yup... it defines life! :)

    Tia, welcome onboard, I guess, because I don't remember having seen you here before! :) The whole idea of maya and illusion there is more than true, but this was written in a bout of insane hope and despair :)

  8. Tarun, well, either way, we always tend to 'hope' for all the things we want in life to happen: that is the delusion!

    BTW, since I believe you're a first-time visitor, welcome! Will visit your page soon.

    Bristi, have you heard of the term false hope? Or, more famously, the line from Rabindranath's Postmaster where he says, "Britha aasha morite moriteo morey naa". Right there --- it is a weakness, putting our minds in a state of denial.

  10. Bristi, I am not asking you to stop hoping or dreaming: that would mean throwing the baby out with the bath-water! All I mean is that it is very difficult to know when the hope transcends optimism and becomes a false hope. I am as confused as you are! :)

  13. Ajit, yes sir... lets see! :)

    Life lover, yes, true, unforgettable. And if you would excuse the hot alien, Keanu Reeves had something of a world to save in the movies :)

    P.S. - Don't you live close to him?
