Cardinal Rules of Life
Laiba Muhammad Aamir
Being born into this world is not something we have chosen ourselves. The body given to our lingering soul was completely out of our control. We were thrown into this world without our will and wish. We could be born as an insect, bird, animal or flower. Martin Heidegger, a German philosopher, says that being thrown into this world is like existing in conditions beyond our control. We are thrown into existence with full of those circumstances which we cannot determine but they affect the way we live and experience. On the other side, Jean-Paul Sartre, a French writer and existentialist philosopher, says, “Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.” He asserts that the circumstances of our birth and upbringing are uncontrollable, but once we develop the ability of self-consciousness, we must make choices even by taking risks, and those choices actually define our very essence. Here, the key to success is “self-awareness.” People come into this world and make plans for a brighter future, but hang in between what to choose and what not. Most of the times, we procrastinate because we lack courage to take a step forward and make it happen. Time is passing quickly and we are getting older. It will hurt when we will think of the things we wanted to do but couldn’t, anyway. Life is full of opportunities and favours. The way to avail them is to work according to certain rules which are cardinal in their status.
