BE ON THE SIDE OF GOOD AND NOT BAD.
Every day of our lives, we are faced with an immense number of choices. We make choices consciously and unconsciously. Some good, and some bad. Daily we help people and we hurt others. Each choice puts us on either side of the angels or the side of the devils. Any choice that’s made unconsciously, unintentionally has a high probability of being more on the devil’s side.
There’s no choice Switzerland. Every choice you make has a direction. It’s either advancing you towards your goals or retreating you from them.
Every choice we make affects our family, friends, our community and the world in general. Sometimes we are torn between making a choice for personal benefits or hard choice personally that will benefit others.
Look, I am not sitting here and pointing fingers telling you what’s right or wrong. Just the fact its hard choice doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be done. Making the decision to be on the side of the angels is a tough call. But if you want to succeed in this life – and I measure success by how close we live by our values i.e. having alignment between our thoughts, words and actions – then we consciously have to do this. Ultimately, we must dedicate our lives to the angels and not the demons.
Do a quick soul check and see how you react when someone cuts you off in traffic or on a queue in the super-market. When you are late for an appointment, and a stranger approaches you for directions, how do you feel, but importantly what do you do?
When you are overweight you climb on the scale, and depending on how quick the numbers climb- you curse under your breath and you say OMG how did that happen? Really, you want to tell me that you don’t know? You have an inbuilt meter for good and bad. We all know when we are being bad. The question is simple. Are you part of the problem or solution to the world’s happiness?
It’s your own personal interpretation on whose side you are on – the angel or the demon. Your own unique set of circumstances have defined what’s good or bad. Judge others by asking our self how you would have done it differently, but say nothing.
