Its a waste to withhold, so smile from your soul
Restrict your mind from obstructing the smooth transfer of the good feeling,
Every time you smile from within, you convey energy, leading to other souls healing,
This world doesn’t need a billion altruists to sustain
Just a scattered few can hold up the umbrellas through the storm and rain.
News reported how some stray dogs attacked contrary to their nature as they attacked water birds in the marshlands at Pallikaranai,South Chennai, India. Packs of dogs wading into the water to devour helpless water birds, displays how desperate times lead to desperate measures. Hunger forced these dogs to go against their natural characteristics and dive in. The disharmony this will render to the food chain is a different question that someone smarter will research on, but I would like to use this example to highlight one of the biggest obstacles in the path of the development of our country.
Politicians in India gave in to corruption as a result of extreme destitution all across the country after the British rule, desperate times called for desperate measures. But conditions improved, the politicians didn’t. So much so that we live in an age in which corruption and politics are considered unofficial synonyms in India.
The political system has been unable to detach itself from the corruption that it incorporated many years ago to fight poverty. This has impaired our countries development and continues to do the same. But with time, as the world becomes smarter, more and more of these corrupt practices get deciphered. Its impossible to let go of acquired habits.
So how can we save ourselves from the impending holocaust of complete economic meltdown, when the force acting for the proper administration of our nation is the one responsible for its under development. Knowing how hard it is for all species to forget acquired habits we need force ourselves(as the politicians come from among us) to acquire good habits. These will super impose on the previously acquired habits and lead to an improved developmental rate.
What are these good habits then? Life kills without life skills, all of us have the great epics to look up to. Even proper education is not the answer. In a trend, where we see the education system loading itself with subject books and ignoring life skill development it is of utmost importance to seek alternate methods of learning.
We need to go back to our epics and texts that travel through centuries. The teachings of our sacred texts have contextual relevance beyond our understanding, Our sub conscious imbibes most of its functioning properties from what our conscious mind engulfs in the early years. Reading sacred books without a religious agenda can help mold minds into more compassionate and caring forms.
Bit by bit we reached imbalanced our universe to its current state,
We cant overturn are fortunes in a day, its only the slow knife that will help us kill hate,
Making us greatly compassionate and compassionately great,
The ride to a corruption-less world will be long but it will never start if you hesitate.
