Closely watch the steam, as it gushes out from the only valve in the pressure cooker. The right amount of heat, the appropriate amount of pressure and there it goes whistling towards its victory.
In the urge to change its form, it chooses its exit and then decides to disperse all around. It escapes through the small kitchen window to find a fate on its own. Sometimes it gets lost in the air, sometimes it converts in rains and most times it returns back to its original pure form.
Every human is like that. He has a mind of his own. He thinks the way he does, in his own perspective he finds its own conclusions and acts on it. At the first chance to be free, he moves out to the unknown, carefully yet instantaneously chooses the path that feels right. He will always have fear of the unknown and sometimes prefer to return back to its comfort zone. But mostly he will have a drive to try the less travelled roads. On these amazing roads life really happens. They learn to live and if not living the way they expected, they learn the art of survival. Along the way, these people who need to find their exit also inspire their peers, sub ordinates and friends to find a better form. Those who grab the positive energy turn themselves into a newer self, just like the cooked rice when the steam has escaped.
It is sometimes that the pressure goes all wrong. The turmoil of the water droplets to change form is unnecessary and uncalled for. It cannot find an exit and it destroys everything on its way, even the food it was meant to cook and burst out of the pressure cooker causing destruction. Things are bound to go wrong sometimes, it is how you find the correct answer and change to your original form at the right time that matters. Accepting defeat is never wrong; it is defeat never having the will to try again.
To succeed in life, we always need some pressure to think right, we need some heat to stir things up, we need a goal to work on it when things seem to be right to try new things and we need a place to escape, to quit and to remove the shackles of our minds and of our realities.
After all we are just like that Steam
