It would be fitting to mention that the vast expense of humankind would find itself entangled in varying degrees of sin that Satan would secretly condone. Hitherto acknowledging our sinful nature derides the fact that our erring paths don’t comply with persons of a differing nature. It would be safe to admit our shortcomings. But when does admittance really feature into the narrative? In the omission of the act or rather merely being clandestine about it?
It’s become commonplace to witness a plethora of achievements that we display on the social platform in order to boost our morale or heighten our networking skills. We are attuned to celebrating success and condemning flaws. But what a complex metrics we adhere to that we might scale to such dizzy heights of success; sometimes even at the cost of having to trample over and becoming pettifoggers. After much contemplation, I see myself going through distinct seasons in my life where I allow my thoughts and traits to succumb to the wider spectrum of visual display that gives us an assurance that things would improvise over time. We have nearly frangled out with myriad options available at our disposal that settling for a solution would addle our wits until we realise that it was a bedlam.
Putting ourselves at ease has become passé given the times that we live in. At our workplaces, gatherings or homes, we are incessantly juggling to bring several tasks to completion while simultaneously having to do it right. Let alone having to comply with a hierarchy of strategies that have been needlessly plunked down upon our frail shoulders.
It’s our inherent nature to peek at handles that instantly spur our grim spirits and set us back on track to fulfill the tasks at hand. It could be in the garb of a phone application or a quick conversation. Whatever it might be, our brain doesn’t process the situation at hand and instead resorts to a quick fix; leaving us with an inflated ego. What if we sought recourse in meditation, spirituality or divinity to combat our long standing issues at hand?
In the spur of the moment when the situation gets out of hand, personally, seeking divine intervention is not something that I take kindly to. How then can we rewire our mind sets to crafts patterns of behaviour that would be required of us in an impromptu situation? We become by what we see; so I reckon journalising, setting reminders, pasting quotations -- some few options that could prove handy.
Nonetheless, it’s noteworthy mentioning that sin by its very nature, is as much a humbling experience in itself. The renowned spiritualist Sadhguru rights confirms, “If you use the horror of who you are as manure, the beauty of who you could be could flower.’’ It serves as a reminder that we don’t possess a birth right to belittle anyone who is struggling with their foibles and rather makes us prudent towards our future salvo of actions. We can become susceptible to err under any circumstances so it’s necessary to own up to our actions if it has distorted our relations.
Don’t be discouraged if the opponent doesn’t return the favour in hour of need. Applaud your victories and you will learn to tide over your passing inequities and come to love yourself even better.
