The Blue pill or the Red pill ?
The stage is set. It happens always for me i guess. This time its Megadeth- A Tout Le Monde. The lyrics go something like this ....
Moving on is a simple thing
What it leaves behind is hard
There are according to me ...only two ways you can deal with ,what you call as moving on. The above shown two pills are reminiscent of this very fact. The first one, the blue pill marks the ignorance-as in you take this sugar coated pill now and act as if everything is same as it was ever before.The red pill is the truth, and as they say it is The bitter truth.
So by intuition you must have guessed that this pill is the bitter one. You might at this stage wonder which fool would even think of taking the blue pill. But there lies the gimmick, if you wish to call it that. The blue pill actually is a sugar coated one on the outside but has its bitterness on the inside. So while are enjoying it in your mouth, as soon as you swallow it, the coat is gone, it shows its true colors and you will have tough time fighting a long and hard battle against this monster inside you. You can hardly do anything than wait for the effect to subside, or you can some precautionary measures,mind you, only to reduce its aftermath.
The Red pill holds completely different prospects for us. It is no doubt,as we have seen, bitter on the outside. So while you have this thing long enough in your mouth, you can deal with this(the outer coat). After you have dealt with the bitterness, the trouble is all over and all you got to do at this stage is to happily swallow it and it is rest assured that you have better days ahead of you.
This is precisely what I feel about life - either you fight with it now or let it reign over you later.
P.S. I apologize to all those people who bore with me about this heartfelt story of the two pills. This is all about the rising of the phoenix from the ashes-as your address bar says.
