We all live in a very harsh world. In which we always struggle with the thoughts of:
What to do?
How to do?
When to do?
Why to do?
But most important before doing anything OR after doing anything, we think that the work we have done is “good or bad”. We always have that thought in our mind. This thought continuously struck in our head like “hammer on nail”.
This thought always bothers everyone.
If we gave some food to 100 beggars
We think we have done a tremendously good job.
If we run out of food and one beggar comes to whom we couldn’t give food we start thinking that we committed a sin. Feeling of bad is much more powerful than good.
So 1> 100
Why don’t we feel between good and bad? Feel both at the same time?
Why don’t we think we helped 100.So feel good about 100 but we did not help 1 beggar so minus 1
Feel good about 99 and this is what I am trying to say. In this way we feel good about 99 and feel bad for 1.
Some people may not agree with me. They think it is not our duty to feed each and every beggar.
Why we feel bad about that 1 beggar also?
And why not feel good about only 100.
Cheers to you guys!!
But I can say very confidently to you guys that after 10 days If you again wants to give away food you’re going to give it to 95 beggars only and with time this number will keep on decreasing because of this mentality
And that day is not away when you will feel why gives food to anyone. After all it cost bucks.
Okay, I am going to ask you a question:
Why we give food to beggars or why we help others
Really to help them?
No, we help them to help ourselves, to feel good.
Feeling good is not important if you want to do greater things in life. I am putting this scenario in front of you.
Just to say
If you always have “good feeling” in you then you cannot do something better than good, but if you have the feeling of a little “bad”, then we try to balance between “good and bad”
And in this effort we always do more good than bad.
And in the above example, giving food to 115 beggars or more than stopping at 100 or reducing the number.
But life is not as simple as that
Of course, not.
Some people say life is like two lanes. Stay on any lane and you’re going to reach somewhere.
But I don’t think reaching somewhere is important.
Reaching at destination is important!
Our life is also like that, there are two lane “GOOD AND BAD”. People says pick one but I states make a new path with good and bad. I am not saying definitely you will reach your destination but “Destination” is will reach you.
Some people say don’t put your legs on two boats otherwise you’re going to drown.
Our life is also just like that boat of good and both of bad, pick one otherwise you will drown. Drowning with good and bad gives pleasure throughout the process.
But how can we feel both good and bad simultaneously?.
Imagine yourself like sky. In sky there is both sunlight and cloud. “Sunlight” is like feeling good and “clouds” are like feeling bad. In sky sunlight is important but scattered clouds are also important which makes it beautiful.
Feeling good and bad both are like “parallel lines” who never intersect with each other but they always go together in the same page simultaneously. By standing between these lines you can face towards only one of them but if you stand above them you can see both the lines at the same time
To feel both “good and bad” you have to stand on bridge of “good and bad”.
