hmmm.. is it possible to see and yet be blind ?
very often, we close ourselves to what is seen in front of us. we close our mind from the realization of what is happening. or what can happen.
or even people who make things happen for us.
and we will not accept it.
we keep trying to run away from this life as though that were possible. as though just not thinking of it, not acknowledging it will make it all better and make all the bad things go away.
when that tsunami struck, we all were struck in our shoes. as though by lightening. and then we proceeded to help them in any way we could.
did we even try to analyze what we thought, what went on through our heads when that happened ?
“there, but for the grace of God, go i.”
and then, feeling guilty, we gave and gave. and tried to arouse that concern in everyone.
nothing wrong in that. but do this because you want to, or because you care. not because the joneses' did it. or because you get plagued by these feelings of guilt.
accept that you are human.
why is that we cannot accept this ? and live life like one ? why keep trying to be like some kind of God ?
accept that you have faults. accept that you can improve and try to. don't keep trying to act like you are some kind of divine being who cannot have faults, and who has to be the one.
when it comes to children too, we must try to “protect them”. save their innocence. for all their life ?!
i agree upto a point. but then one cannot be a “babe in the woods” all the time in the world we live in.
the world is not a nice place. accept it. and try to make the child understand the difference in good and evil. simply exposing it to only the good things in life is not a solution.
the power of choice is one that we all had. allow everyone this freedom.
but then that means one accepts responsibility for one's actions. you make a choice to do something, it means that if anything goes wrong you will be held responsible.
this is the way that we have made the world today. whether fortunate or unfortunate is just a matter of perception.
but since we've made it this way, it means that we accept that we did what we did.
we might have screwed up in some places.
but its not an experience to miss.
not for me.
