Finding Happiness through Making Peace with the World

People learn about the world through all their senses since a very young age. It is thus no exaggeration that the world around is the source of all the dreams, imaginations, and hopes of people. To each individual person, the world around them forms a little universe, which they are at the center of. Being the masters of their own universe, people are free to build their own understanding and expectation of the world. The resources available to them are the physical and non-physical conditions presented to them by their distinctive lives. This is both a limitation and expansion of people’s hopes and dreams. The limitedness and expansiveness of hopes and dreams often happen simultaneously. However, it is difficult to consciously detect such limitedness and expansiveness. In this essay, the two seemingly contradicting side of the world will be discussed through “The World and Other Places” by Jeanette Winterson and “Bumping into Mr. Ravioli” by Adam Gopnik. In fact, the limitedness and expansiveness of the hopes and dreams are both important part of self-realization. True happiness is only achieved when one makes peace with both the limitation and the expansiveness.

 

People often find themselves limited by their physical environment. Due to the long established social structure, differences between social classes are indeed becoming obvious. While children from rich families are touring around the world, taking lessons of different languages and learning social skills to be the sophisticated adults they are expected to become, children from poorer families worry more about their snacks, pleading their parents to take them to the zoo on weekends, and saving up pocket money to get the toy they have been wanting to get. Such a sharp comparison often makes people question the equality of the society. There is no denying that physical limitations exist as a big part that determines people’s dreams and hopes. However, it is questionable that the physical environment is the only factor that shapes people’s hopes and dreams, and their definition of happiness. There are instances when children from the working class making great achievements in business and academic fields. Similarly, there are also instances when people who come from wealthy families accomplish very little with the resources they have. So, there must be more important factors than the physical environment.

 

In the story “The world and other places,” the boy comes from a poor family. Living in a small apartment with his siblings and parents, the family could not afford trips to anywhere, except for maybe one to the shops. One may think that such a life must be boring and miserable for a young boy like the author himself. However, it is quite the contrast. While the physical limitations prevented them from actually going to places like Bombay, Cairo, Paris, and New York, they could not prevent their heart’s desire. The family had airplane nights every Saturday, when they pretended that the small apartment room was their plane cabinet taking them to all the wonderful places around the world. They took a lot of effort imagining and setting the scene, making it as realistic as possible. And after the boy grew up, he realized the dream and visited all these places he wanted to go as a child. There is no sharper contrast than a small apartment room with the entire world. From being very poor to joining the Air Force and becoming a real pilot, it was the power of dreams that pushed the boy forward and motivated him to rise above the limitations of the physical environment.

 

The power of imagination and dream is incredible, especially in young children. While the physical environment and the dreams can be interfering with each other, it is often the adults who are more susceptible of the influence from the former, while the children are more inclined to believe in their dreams. The model airplane of the boy was like a vessel that carried his dreams. It was like the invisible wings for him to go to the different places of the world that he wanted to be. This is the rare case when someone from his own universe realizes the limitation of his dreams, and tries to reach out to other universes. The author has done so by imagining the lives of peoples in distant countries: the group of Indians who played cellos, the different peoples whose lives continued with or without him. It was such curiosity that built up and sustained his dreams, until he was finally capable of realizing them. By then, he has actually expanded his universe to a much larger one.

 

It would be wrong to assume that the dreams and hopes of the boy were derived entirely from his inner willpower and had nothing to do with “the world.” In fact, the most important part of his world was his family, who were very supportive and loving. In addition to setting an airplane night every week, the mother was willing to play the Chief Steward. By spending a lot of time with the children, she was unconsciously delivering the message that she was approving and supportive of the children and their dreams. Although she did not provide her children with real trips to places around the world, she supported their ability to dream. And most importantly, both the mother and the children seemed to be genuinely enjoying the process, which made them very happy. Compared to a child from a wealthy family who has access to everything but is not taught to cherish anything, the children from the story seem a lot happier. Therefore, “the world” and its influence on hopes and dreams should be discussed not only on the material level, but also on the emotional and spiritual level, which sometimes matters even more than the physical environment.

 

However, if the power of imagination, hopes, and dreams is so strong, there will be no failures in the society. This is clearly not true, as there are many people who have given up on their dreams, with the realization of the heaviness of reality. Growing up is the process of abandoning the old dreams and shouldering the adult responsibilities. This happens in the story as well. When the mother asked the son, now a pilot in the Air Force already, whether to take his once cherished model airplane with him or not, he refused. Among the adults, one would probably be mocked for talking about childhood dreams, although these dreams were once so important that they got the men where they are. As an adult, the heaviness of life began to reveal, and the sense of emptiness began to emerge after he realized his childhood dreams. He could not find true happiness now that he has seen it all. In searching for the way to live and achieve true happiness, the homeless guy taught him that happiness is about making a mark in the world. the dress designer from Milan taught him to simply be occupied by life and not think too much. Finally, it was the third woman who taught him the true sense of happiness. It was about making peace with life. No matter what one has or not, he or she must learn to trim away the unnecessary worries and true enjoy the state of being.

 

If the hopes and dreams are not derived from within, then they must be originated from the world, and are thus limited by the world. People always talk about the unlimited nature of imagination, but the truth is imagination is always based on “the world.” the reason why one’s imagination can appear so extraordinary and “out of the world” for another, is because it truly is. Different people have entirely different perceptions of the objective world, so that a subjective world is created for every one of them, which is the same as the individual universes discussed above. Based on their own subjective worlds, it is no wonder how their imagination can vary so much. In the story “Bumping into Mr. Ravioli,” the author describes the imagined playmate of his 3-year-old daughter, Mr. Charlie Ravioli. Mr. Ravioli appears to be an extremely busy man. Despite being the imaginary playmate, he has never filled the shoes as he constantly working.

 

Obviously, this image is based on the subjective universe created of the little girl. She has an older brother who is seven and a half, and obviously the busy Mr. Ravioli is based on the brother who already attends different classes and has a filled schedule at a young age. This is just a typical image of a New York child, racing in life from they are very little. Being concerned about this imagination, the father did a lot of research and consulting to make sure it was not going to be a traumatizing experience for his daughter. However, as he dug deeper and understood more about Mr. Ravioli, he began to feel that everyone around him were living like Mr. Ravioli. From a child’s perspective, the little girl successfully captured the state of living and existence of almost the entire city, which is pretty amazing.

 

If anyone wanted an imaginary playmate, this playmate must be the representation of some positive characteristics from real life. Although it is hard to tell whether the busyness of Mr. Ravioli represent a positive feature to the little girl, the author has found that association between busyness and happiness has been long established in the modern society. It has become a culture, an obsession, that people are supposed to be busy with their lives. Otherwise, something must have gone wrong. However, are these people truly happy with their busy and seemingly meaningless lives? The answer seems to be negative, just as the pilot from the first story begins to doubt about his own life. Again, it is “the world” that is to blame for the loss of happiness in people, as it creates this limitation that defines a person by his level of busyness. Hopes and dreams are degraded to tools that make people busier and more successful, instead of helping them find happiness.

 

In conclusion, the limitedness and expansiveness of hopes and dreams coexist. While the physical environment plays an important limiting factor on people, the spiritual environment helps people break free from the physical limitations at the same time. The limitedness and expansiveness of the world are also largely dependent on age. For children, imagination, dreams, and hopes are their wings and motivations that help them go anywhere they dream of. However, as their age increases, their passion for dreaming die down. The limitedness of the world begins to reveal, as adults become reluctant to talk about unrealistic childhood dreams. Instead, they are caught in the culture that defines happiness with the level of busyness. Eventually, they are driven farther away from true happiness. Based on the experience of the pilot from the first story, true happiness is about making peace with the limitedness and expansiveness of the world.
