Deep in our hearts, we always know what we are doing (the good, bad and ugly) but on the outside, we can remain in a ‘state of denial’ forever……. can you relate?
Especially for the acts when we try to do selfish things that may benefit us more or cause (some) harm to others (degree may vary)….. your heart will tell you a clear direction!
Familiar with these phrases that your heart screams within when you take some selfish decisions-
- “Don’t do it!”
- “Speak up”
- “Think twice”
But…….what do we do?
We remain in a state of denial, as if we did not hear what was said, even though the voice is screaming loudly inside, we tend to stay unaffected and still go ahead and take those decisions which are ideally against our own values and principles!
Our inner voice is governed by what we are made of including our values and that is why, it screams when we don’t stand by it! Do you agree?
Trust me, we accept it or not, but we do get our answers, the outcome of our every act, loud and clear, even before we do it!
The Power resides within us and it always guides us to take the right step!
Taking selfish decisions may be good for us in the short term but in the long run, please remember that one needs to pay for one’s deeds, good as well as bad! You may also like to read my earlier blog Aiming at “Zero” – a state of absolute balance!
In life, we always get choices and the guidance too, but what we choose reflects our inner character, our values and what we are truly made of!
Doing the right thing and not making selfish choices gives us that awesome feeling of satisfaction, contentment, lots of positivity and happiness, which actually is our earned treasure 🙂
To conclude: Others remember us in their hearts for both reasons, for love and respect and equally for hatred! By being a little alert in our deeds, we can benefit people around us and create happiness and smiles and no more heart-burns for them or for us! Isn’t that on top of our wishlist always? Additionally, we can feel contented & happy within and on top of that, feel proud of ourselves by doing the right thing! That’s like a little icing on the cake 🙂
