Many events in life can be likened with ever-receding mirages that always deceive the traveller in the desert. We sometimes run after alluring attractive dreams in the hope of reaching them, but to no avail. At some stage, we discover that all those were only our delusions....the dreams, the people and the promises that we ran after were not really what we thought them to be. At that juncture, it's best to move on with life, and not to think of those failed dreams, deceptive people, and broken promises. In my view, recognizing the delusional mirages in right time is most important for the traveller - because it's the first step in the direction of clear path, which can often lead to the Oasis, the ultimate Success. Life is nothing but moving on! La Vie Continue!
