It is a jungle out there, so I have been told. And unfortunately no one is born with a guideline in their hands. We crawl, try to stand up, balance our way forward and in the process we stumble and fall. I am pretty much sure that a lot of us have the strength to stand up but I wonder how many of us have the courage to move forward.
Like the three little pigs, when we go out into the world, quite often we come across the big bad wolf or rather wolves. We have to face people who will cunningly whisper, “I will bluff and bluff and bluff you away…”.
We as human beings usually forget The Golden Rule: treat others the way you would like to be treated. If only we try to remember… the world would be a happier place. We can bring up thousands and thousands of excuses to prove ourselves, yet it does not make the wrong right.
One such “wrong” is greed. When our world starts to shake, we try to take action as soon as possible. We close our eyes to the surrounding and blindly proceed crushing everything in our way. Never giving a thought that on our way we have harmed a floundering soul just to get what we want. We would have been able to reach where we want and claimed what is there. But throughout our journey we must have carried the unbearable baggage known as guilt. And your baggage is there to stay. So, dear people it is more important to obey the golden rule than to carry the excess baggage throughout your entire life.
As for the floundering souls, in reply to the big bad wolf, just say “not by the hair of my chinny chin chin” and protect your beautiful souls, protect the goodness in you, stand with dignity and protect humanity even if it is very minute.
