Only If Everyone Had a Jacob

Many times in our lives, we are stuck in a situation where we don’t know what to do. And only if at that point we could have someone telling us what to do next, someone like Jacob.

No, Jacob is not someone I know in real life, in fact, he doesn’t even exist. Whom I’m talking about here is a fictional character named ‘Jacob’ from TV series Lost, which I’m watching these days.

Spoiler Alert: This post contains information from the TV show Lost till the 4th season.

Many of us believe in destiny that we are born to do something, something important if not particularly great. But at times, we get lost on our way to achieving our destiny, our goal. We look everywhere for the answer to our next move, analyse the situation from every angle, but remain clueless about what to do next. What if in this time of uncertainty, we had someone to tell us what to do?

For example, in Lost, John Locke knew he had to protect the island, but he didn’t know what he should do next. So he went on a search to look for Jacob, so he can tell Locke what to do next. At that time, Locke put his complete faith in Jacob, that he will be able to tell him what to do.

Won’t it be great if we all knew a Jacob in real life, someone who knew what we should do next? Someone who can simplify our lives, save us from the feeling of directionlessness.

But alas, we live in a real world, where we don’t always have an external guiding force. Yes, at times someone may help us, but most of the time we are on our own, our destiny is in our hands. All we can do is hope for whatever we choose to do; we choose correctly.
