Whether the carried-out dream to turn back the evil can?

it seems Little as fine as pleasure from achievement of the treasured purpose. However there can be also a back. On the way to dream it is important not to lose himself, and having received the desirable, not to stop in development. To think of these questions, it is useful to address for example from literature.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov`s story “Gooseberry“ is remembered by all. The modest, killed official Chimsha - Himalaya all life cherished dream of own estate. Daily imagined a garden with indispensable bushes of a gooseberry. In everything limited itself and only at advanced age reached the treasured purpose. However the result of long-term aspirations was very unattractive. The hero almost lost human shape - “any minute, will give a grunt in a blanket“.

The carried-out dream led to degradation of the personality, to necrosis of soul. This literary example sets thinking why so occurred. Now the subject of achievement of the objectives is very popular. However it is often held back that at this process as the medal, can have a back. Aspiring to something, it is important not to lose himself, and having received the desirable, not to stop in development. It is useful to think of it beforehand.

Painful emptiness

At the writer Sergey Fedin is the statement: “Happiness - in a step to dream, a nightmare - in a step after“. Really, sometimes, that implementation of treasured expectation brings disappointment. In soul emptiness is formed, and such state is very painful. It is especially terrible when this vacuum is filled with egoism and complacency. Quite so happened to the Chekhovian hero.

Depresses if the person does not understand that to him there is something wrong. Chimsha - Himalaya was quite happy with the new life, and he needed nothing for happiness more. It stopped in development that did not disturb him at all. To it and a lack of time was to think of it. The plate with sour berries became that altar on which the hero of the story put young years and those merits which he, very possibly, initially possessed.

“Dreamboat - the dream which turned blue waiting for the implementation“

These words of the unknown author sound funny, however are not deprived of common sense. Process of aspiration to the purpose can turn back degradation of the personality. The hero of “Gooseberry“ the example eloquently shows it. The little person absorbed by dream became stale and indifferent to people. He without any feeling married for the sake of money, doomed the wife to beggarly existence and that brought closer her death. At the same time did not test any remorse.

Having achieved the dream, it is very easy to fall into self-conceit. “The most impudent“, - as is noticed by Chekhov. A considerable role is played also that the achieved objectives sometimes pull out those qualities of the personality which were concealed for the time being at heart on a surface. Not always they are positive. The shy official turns into the self-satisfied barin. Perhaps, the similar arrogance was in it and before, just dozed till a certain moment. Leaving in the past the Story told by Chekhov is capable to suggest


an unfavourable idea. Other reader can quite ask a question whether it is worth aspiring in general to something if there is a risk of so deplorable final. No, desires and the purposes are necessary. But it is very important to understand, than they are dictated also what has to serve result to. Whether it will be able to become the base for new, more considerable achievements, or will lead to kickback back.

In the story there is an important nuance. The hero spent the childhood in the village, and these memoirs generated dream of life outdoors. He did not cope with melancholy for the past. Many are visited in the same way by desire to return long ago left. The temptation is strong, though is impracticable. From the past it is possible and it is necessary to learn lessons, but it is impossible to turn back the clock. As nostalgia on the childhood is strong sometimes, it it is necessary to have and live further. If to forget about the present, then anything good it will not lead to.

thinking Scales

Consciousness of the hero was narrowed by

to the estate sizes with a gooseberry. But, as the author of the story notices, the person needs all globe. There can be a speech not only and not just about physical space how many about intellectual and spiritual. Limitation, a zakosteneniye, egoism appear when the person enters dependence on the petty purpose. “It is necessary that behind a door of each happy, happy person there was somebody with a hammer“, - Chekhov writes.

Not necessarily the purpose is small and selfish. It can be and noble. But even in this case not all reflect how to live after its achievement. The person gets used to result soon, and the carried-out dream becomes part of his ordinary life. The desire to stay at top and to enjoy this state is quite dangerous. Just to keep the reached level, it is necessary to work. For further ascension of efforts it will be required even more.

If there are no new purposes, then there occurs the spiritual death. Everything in the nature is in the movement - both tiny atoms, and huge galaxies. There is nothing that would stay in the stiffened state. However for the person the thought of absolute rest seems sometimes very tempting. It is important not to give in to such temptation. Who does not go forward, that is delayed back. Either growth, or degradation - differently cannot be. It is necessary to remember it.
