How far do you agree with the term ‘relativity’? Is everything in the world relative, or there is something called absolutism? Just a century ago, Albert Einstein, often regarded as one of the most influential physicist of written history gave his famous theory on relativity. But relativity indeed is not something which is limited only upto physics. The concept of relativity is even applicable to our day to day life. What is right for you might be wrong for me. What is a success for me might be a failure to you. There’s nothing like goodness or badness in this world. If there’s something, it’s our own perspective which we choose to look at things. Once you change the focus of your lenses you’ll discover that everything in the way is taking a different shape or form.
For example, let us take the case of joy and sorrow in life. People in general tend to believe that joy and sorrow are two contrasting things which can never commingle with each other, just in the way the sky cannot blend with the land. However, when we see the same sky and the sea from a distance perhaps the esoteric nature will show us a different picture. Look deep into your moments of bliss and you’ll discover that it is the same sorrow whose absence is giving you joy. Similarly, in your darkest hours you’ll ascertain that it is same exultation whose exclusion is giving you the most harrowing pains. For a lover his/her beloved may the greatest souce of pleasure for him but it should not be forgotten simultaneously that the unavailability of the same person is what gives him the deepest scars.
‘It’s all relative’, the line cannot be more true in any regard or respect. Every one thing in the universe is related to every other thing in one way or the other. There can be no heat without cold, no light without darkness and no love indeed without hatred. Tell me if there were no autumn in this world, how would you enjoy the tranquility of spring? If there were no losing, how would savour your hours of victory?
In life we can have almost anything we desire or long for if we are willing to pay the price for it. We are the masters of our own brain and the captains of our own soul. So choosing the right perspective on life matters far more than what we think will make our life meaningful as well as a perfect example for the future generations. For it should not be forgotten in any way: ‘Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder’.
