There is a reason I choose this title for what I am going to write, these are the two places one would have gone at least to one - once in his life time. If you say no then you are beyond what I am going to write, else this may come close to your life.
Hospitals, why do we go there – illness, accidents, for some loved once to get well. No not really now even a healthy one visits in the name of health checkup or to make sure they stay healthy. From a generation of engineers, scientist and mathematicians to the most prestigious leaders, politicians and priests there is one final chapter that they won’t be able to avoid “that’s death”. Why did I say chapter, I could have described it as enemy like others would do, perhaps that’s my perspective. Ok “the hospital” we all go there because we are all afraid of that final chapter. You may think I am crazy to tell you that you are afraid of “final chapter”, think again – why we are so desperate about us or our loved once? So that we can save them. The pain and suffering are part of it. But not only that; the measure of fear differs for everyone, I may measure it at 9/10 you may measure it at 1/10 doesn’t matters – it’s ultimately gives the same results “run for the life”. We are afraid of our life or our loved once and we do what we could to save them. That’s why we go to hospitals.
On a different note some or many of us go to get rid of our sufferings and pain or may be of our loved once. Some of us go there to make sure that we are not going to suffer in future (like a health checkup). And do remember for a very few it’s their job.
Temples, why do we go there – J I thought of copy and pasting the above content as it is! But you can read it again replacing hospital with temple and see how it suites, decide for yourself.
There is a deep magic, or I would say connection in what happens around this world or even the universe. May be we are very limited to the knowledge about this world and not know what lies beyond, so all I can do is explain it up to my own knowledge and wisdom, it up to you to take it or even feel it in your own wisdom.
