This is your life
If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.
My answer would definitely be NO.
Because, of the many lessons I learnt off late, the most important one was to
Be patient and learn to go with the flow of life.
In a way, it is definitely the best way to live life. There exists no man in this world, who being aware of his future was able to change few things which were bound to happen in his life. In that case, what is the point in knowing the Unknown. It will definitely add more pain to you.
The best scenario for this statement would be like this:
You get your life-history book. You read it cover to cover only to discover that, 90% of your life shall be spent in chapters of sadness. Now what? Can you change the order of those events? No. Can you go into the future and stop the person from not leaving you? No. You cannot change the order of nature. What needs to happen, shall happen no matter what.
Nothing is in our hands. In that case, what’s the point in knowing the uncertainty. Uncertainty is definitely an uncomfortable position but certainty is an absurd one. I am a huge believer of Gita. The following quotes pretty much explains why one should never ever be bothered about the sequence of events happening in his life. Its hard to practice but ultimately we all know, that is the truth of life.
