I live in a cocoon . And whether you admit it or not, you all do. Our families, jobs, society with its institutions and conditioning, education, all of these form a big shell around us. A shell, thick enough to block our senses from so many experiences and revelations, that we live in a half-realised world. And guess what, we never peek outside. Where there is so much beauty, bliss, knowledge and pleasure possible, that a single lifetime is just not enough to gather it all.
We construct routines for our daily lives that leaves us no time for true reflection. Cramming more and more into our already brimming, creaking lives, pushing out the real meaningful bits, we proudly proclaim that we are succeeding in life. Now that I have a bigger car, my kids go to posh schools, I must be happy. Oh yes, all that I have tells me that I must be real happy. But here I am, jealous of the random courier boy's sudden, sparkling, unbridled laugh. What does he possess which I do not, may be it's something that I lack.
Have I gathered so much anguish, so many frowns and so many fat pay checks that I have forgotten to laugh like that? May be I lost my spontaneity, doing that dull management course. May be I lost my innocence in those nights I spent at the callcentre, swindling customers with sweet talk. And may be I lost my child like capacity for joy while I was investing in the stock market. Looking back over all those years, I think I have lost much, and earned little. May be I should look outside my cocoon. Perhaps I should go and take a walk outside my sheel. May be I should do something I love, for a change, outside protocols, alone, like a fluttering butterfly, alive for a while. May be I should volunteer shramdaan.

Chances are, such optimistic thoughts are coming from two places in the brain that play an important role in enabling people to, as the old song says, accentuate the positive, New York University scientists said on Wednesday.Pinpointing the brain regions involved in optimism and positive thinking about the future, the researchers said, may also have shed light on what might be going wrong in people with depression.
The researchers used sophisticated brain imaging to track brain activity in 15 young adults — seven men and eight women — while they asked them to imagine future scenarios. These included getting a lot of money, winning an award.
