If we let our children get away with wrong doings ,simply by ignoring the act or covering it up, without a flinch are we protecting them or pushing them towards destruction?
There is always a punishment/control for a mistake/crime , and it starts with a mistake , unintentional in the beginning and later intentional. A child lies and plays, thinking that it is right.. if in a joking way, parents ignore and don’t tell them how it will later develop into a bad habit. The child repeats and slowly finds out , that a lie can protect him from many odd situations , his habit of lying develops..now he cheats..then he plans a fraud and finally embezzles . Lands up in jail or kills someone in real.
His value system becomes weak , and reduced to tatters because his sense of recognizing a sin is not actually making him stop. Why we learn and where we learn, has no excuse for continuing to practice wrong notions, even though we acknowledge that our values are immoral. We further indulge in self deception, by telling our inner voice ,”others are liars too “, I lie only when I get into a tight spot. Convenient ! isn’t it ?
Suppose there is a fire burning and engulfing the area, would we run or stay as others get burned and charred..we run 🙂 we escape that pain and possible death..we are trying to protect our life. Then why not protect our soul ?
Protecting ourselves and our children must include learning and teaching good moral values ,it doesn’t matter if 90% of population where we reside have wrong thinking , remember only that darkness is everywhere but light source even if limited can enlighten everyone anywhere..
we write..just as we speak..only words are silent until literate eyes read..and the message is registered in the mind..questioned or left untouched..just as throwing a stone in bottomless pit..you know it was thrown..it has a weight..yet never know what it touched as it dropped..has it landed or still moving with gravity..endlessly..forever…when someone feels or clicks on like..leave a comment or follow us…we know it has come in contact with another mind…another soul..another heart…
When you fail and others win , when you get late while everyone else is on time. There is some inner frustrations and depressions, even jealousy and anger. A reaction to failures and disappointments, lead us to either pull others or push ourselves for better result.
Each failure has in-built lessons, this is the moment of weakness when ego can beat you dead or intelligence can rescue you for better approach or exercise. In life, we have trillions of wishes , yet few set targets and goals. Wishes are expectations and goals are achieved, not always can we be healthy nor effective, as our knowledge is limited to our effort. We can try, but others can be better not just hard work but sheer intelligence. How can we then compete ? We, should analyze our defeats and our potentials , whether it was a less creative effort or had nothing creative, did we give time for thinking or just went ahead to doing.
It is important to first think, and re-think till we are satisfied , for this initial brain storm we do need research and inspirations, that we decide to explore and then after all angles are evaluated , we must proceed with the “doing” part.
Speed with accuracy is only appreciated when the final result is nothing less than “awesome”
Each day has love , it is an on going feelings. Life has moments that we celebrate with laughter , or a kiss a touch or hug. Acts of love are better than gifts, learn to create such a life that makes heart happy and soul satisfied. Do celebrate Valentine’s day, but live a life where every day is special!
