Hello To All My Dear Readers 🙂
There is so much of violence and crimes that are happening all over the world in the present times, and I thought of penning my views on this topic according to my knowledge and experiences. When I say violence, its not about just war related happening that are going on as I am not someone who gets involved in political or religious issues. But it is in general how people behave and treat other fellow human beings and go about in life 🙂
As human beings we are all able to learn, observe, think and make use of all our senses together, to put into good use for ourselves and others benefit. Once we are born to this world its, “Our Duty to work towards the welfare of All Mankind” But so many do not do this, why ? Because they see themselves as one person, as individuals. The society, the world is all inter-related/connected to one another like a web. When we upset from one side, it shakes up another side. Why is all these people who hurt and harm others lives are unaware of this !!!
Lord Buddha has preached that, as adult human beings we can, “Discriminate between Right and Wrong” And its wrong to ignore when we can advice or point out if someone is doing something wrong for their benefit. We do not need a religion to exactly know how another person feel. If we get hurt, physically or mentally, we know the same way another will get hurt. Am I correct ?
Man is, “The only creature who is able to read, listen, learn and able to choose between right and wrong, with wisdom” When we are born we all go through a process of education from our childhood beginning from “Nursery Rhymes” Starting with our parents then teachers, religion, friends and so many who crosses our paths we are shown in everyway, how things work in life. We are given endless opportunities to the maximum, this is why there are two parents. If one fails the other is there, just like two hands and even other family around us. With all these “Guidance” why is it that some end up being extremely deteriorated, evil enough to go to an extent of not only doing grievous harm, but to the extent of destroying such valuable human lives !!!
This is because, with all that “Guidance” these people, “Choose to be Ignorant. Yes as human beings they choose and continue to be so, when they have all that process of being able to Enlighten, Discipline themselves to be Good Citizens of the world” Ignorance of unwanted issues can be Bliss. As we cannot know and learn everything. But being Ignorant of Human Values are Evil !!!
But it’s not only in these modern days, so many good people like, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr and even Socrates himself were killed by, the people, the very society that they were trying to Enlighten/Guide towards better life !!!
Why do people harm, kill good people ? It was Socrates who said that when you harm another, “Its the soul of that person who is harmed” These are said by many different ways. What goes around comes around, according to, “The Laws of The Universe” “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” A command based on words of Lord Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount : The Mosaic law contains a parallel commandment: “Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person.” All these Religions say the same things in different ways !!!
With all that, man harms his brothers, sisters who are all part of each other. We are all energy. Hence connected to each other. We are all soul sisters and brothers of one big family. Still with all that man harms. Man kills. This is by Mahatma Gandhi himself. Did he know he too was going to be killed ? But these are his words left for centuries ……
The reasons given by many of these great people is, part of the general society do not want people to do well. They, “Resent others greatness” Greatness does Not come with money. It comes with unselfishness, good values, integrity ~ the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles !!!
This type of people have no rules, no moral values. They have No clue in what they have to do as human beings. But only of themselves. Their values are completely different from those who abide by the rules of, any religion which all come under ~ “The Laws of The Universe”, which governs us all !!!
When people do not have any set values, they do not know who they are. When people have no respect for themselves, they are unable to respect others. Actually I do not personally understand how people can be so ignorant, even some of those who are highly qualified in certain fields of education. It’s not only those who are uneducated who do the wrong things. Its among All people, in all colours and in all races in the world. So many have a lot of anger and resentment towards others. It can be religions, culture and even how they look and their status in the society that they want to put them down or even do away with some of them completely. Most of these things come from a section, who are after material things and never gets satisfied at any time !!!
Greed is never ending and never satisfying. Greed can be for anything, what ever can bring someone power over others. Goodness can never be over taken by evil. And that breeds, “Envy” which is something once set in, will be very difficult to cure. Envy is like a poison that slowly eats up one’s soul !!!
As you see, the mind plays a very big part in all our lives. That is why the religions are there, for us to be guided from time to time. As human beings we all make mistakes, take the wrong turn. Is there anyone on this earth who has Not made a mistake ? It is said that, ” People are pardoned for things that they do unknowingly. But Not for things they do knowing they are wrong and keep on repeating the same mistakes over and over again !!!
Although we are one, each one can contribute in some way, to the welfare of our world. Mother earth needs to be protected for our future generations. Even bees are in danger because of pesticides. These are selfish acts with no thought of others. If there no bees there can be no, pollinating for thousands of flowers for our fruits and vegetables. So its not only war, but water, food and clean air as well !!!
Why the world is a dangerous place is, because so many people who know its wrong look the other way or take no actions at all. Its not jumping in front of a gun, but somehow standing by the weak, helping, giving a hand to the fallen, the sick, the less fortunate how ever a small way we can !!!
So today 11th of July, I have worked on this from morning. Almost the whole day. Its the first time I have written an article, that is mostly about religion. I don’t know exactly why I thought to write this, but from the time I started I have been reminded of something my mother said before she passed away 19 years ago. She had great faith in bajans as her illness went into remission, and passed away very peacefully, that I still continue daily as I know the value of Healing Energies of any kind of prayers. I have been always keen on the knowledge of Buddhism and later went on to read about other religions which comes under, “Sarwa Dharma” Sarva Dharma Sama Bhava – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Sarva Dharma Sama Bhava is an Indian concept embodying the equality of all religions. The concept was embraced by Ramakrishna and Vivekenanda, as well as Gandhi.“
It was during our talks that she mentioned I have enough knowledge to lecture religion, which took me by surprise and I took it as a great compliment, as she was highly qualified and I have studied only up to my A Levels. I had No idea at that time that, I will be writing on the I net for many people all over the world today. I had always wanted to do service. But I never imagined, this is what I ultimately came to do. The highest form of charity is, giving out what you know to help others,”The Gift of Knowledge” 🙂
|The essence of true charity is to give something without expecting anything in return for the gift
|To the Buddhist, the highest gift of all is the gift of Dhamma. This gift has great powers to change a life
There are over 100,000 people who follow my Face Book Motivational pages. There are those who read in and out of Face Book too. I have the strength of my doctors, who has said not to expect much feed back or comments, that even if I help one person with my knowledge its enough for my whole life. I do not know who read or how many, and I prefer Not to know. As if I know of a known person, then my freedom of writing is disturbed. As then I think will she or he think I am trying to impress prove a point ?
I have come a very long way. Depression and Bipolar are very serious illnesses. I have fully come out of Depression and Bipolar is under control. Those who are qualified and the doctors who read may know exactly if they are in hiding, that is why I am taking medication without fail as prevention, for life. Why I am writing all this, is to Give Hope for all of those out there, that if I can, so can you to some extent recover if not fully. So that you can have Faith on living a better and happier life 🙂
If my mother was alive, she would have been very happy, to know that today I am, who I am she thought me to be. I don’t know how Blessings work, but from all what I am doing, I offer Merit to both my grand parents from both sides, parents and my family, friends, the doctors and All those helped or not, living and passed away, daily. I am not just me. I am a collection of many down the generations of both my parents. Just like material things, knowledge and wisdom are also to be passed on. That is the real value in life. I carry no one’s name, so that whatever I do, I do not take credit because of some other person. What I do is who I am ~”Deepa Nilamani” I believe my grandfather named me with some meaning ? being a very wise person. Deepa means Light. Light means Enlightenment. Being ignorant is called being in the dark. Depression is also known as darkness. And here what I am doing is trying to help others come out of that darkness/depression in both ways. I do hope I am doing it right !!!
We are only here for a limited period of time. Not short. Life can be as long as how well we live. We come without anything. Not even clothes and we take nothing. Only our Energy is passed on as Light. For that limited period of time, we need to know the rules of life so that we can live well and join mother earth (as that is where we All go in the end ~ dust to dust ashes to ashes) with a smile on our faces, knowing we have done our duty to ourselves as well as others, lived according to the, “True Values in each of our Life Time” 🙂
Thank you all for reading. Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies to all ❤
Deepa Nilamani 🙂
