Human limits.

It’s amazing how you can have a full- fledged meal smack- bang in the middle of the night one day. At a time when you are usually in the throes of the deepest slumber. You can then wake up and ignore your oddly bereft feeling, and yet- grumbling tummy in the morning, and leave to wherever and whatever awaits you in the name of ‘work’.

Then, without a thought, you refrain from even a single drop of water or a morsel of sustenance and casually get through the day. Or so it seems.

In reality, hunger is irrepressible. It constantly nags your thought and action. You are left irritable and vulnerable. It leaves you bare to the hostilities of nature and environment that you did not even know existed.

And yet, you conquer it. Albeit for 10, 15 or 20 hours a day; you bravely face man’s greatest nemesis – HUNGER.

It’s amazing what the human mind and body is capable of. We can hardly predict where it’s terminus ad quem lies. So push yourselves a little harder than usual today folks. Go a bit further away from your comfort zones. Go faster, higher, longer, better if possible. In all endeavors.

Irrespective of what motivates your actions; blind faith, superstition, culture, tradition, science, belief systems, emotions, instinct- do whatever it is you are doing better than you did before.

We are so much more capable than we think we are, apparently.

Till next time..

P.S. I am not sure what brought it on. Nor do I know where I intended to go with this post 🙂 I always ramble incoherently if woken at anytime between 2 and 3 am….

Would love to hear from you folks! Do comment (email optional)
