Guardian of the change…

The guardians of the culture and traditions often end up being resistant to change. You although know that the change is somehow inevitable and yet you often try your best to dodge it. You somehow only hope that this is not the time. You fear of being responsible and yet failing to guard the traditions. You fear of becoming the weak link to the wall that guards all those things.

It’s difficult, really difficult to judge things. It’s difficult to decide that the change is here. It’s difficult to embrace it. There’s no light to guide you in that dark and you are desperate in search of one. You somehow only hope that this phase passes, you somehow only hope that you are not the one to face the brunt.

The guardians have often died against the winds of change, lived the rest of their lives lamenting and yet few, very few wise have been able to accept it and embrace it. I think that’s the way you know that it is inevitable. When you try all you can and yet the winds of change are so strong that there’s no way you can stand up to them. Probably at that one instant you will realize that this is it. And yet somehow you’ll still hope for some miracle.

We are just too comfortable to the way things have been working probably. We don’t want to get out of our comfort zone and witness something different. Sometimes you feel like just letting things go. Just let them go.

Sam’s speech from The Lord of The Rings: Two Towers is really inspiring.

Sam It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines, it’ll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something…. That there’s some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.

The destined will eventually happen may be. If all through you know that you are right then you ought to at least give it one try. It’s probably worth fighting for.

It’s difficult to judge really. It’s really difficult. MAKTUB
