WE CAN CHANGE PROVIDED WE HAVE WILL TO CHANGE

WE CAN CHANGE PROVIDED WE HAVE WILL TO CHANGE

 

We make ourselves slaves of our own weaknesses
Weaknesses which may push us in their web of influences

Though knowing well that such weaknesses are self-destructive
Yet we tend to do nothing  constructive

To change tamoguna tendency into sattvicguna trait

Tamoguna is the quality of imbalance or inactive

The vicious circle of events goes on, one leads  to another
still more harmful than the earlier one

We’re bereft of even an iota of awareness

Of  ‘how much is too much’ belief 
pushing us down the drain still further
till such time we get submerged totally

From where it is hard to come ou unsullied.

There still is way out from this utter confusion

A jam of chaos of our own creation

Created knowingly, perchance or influenced by situation
best course is to disentangle from this web strand by strand

With undaunted will and firm stand 
till such time we become totally free of cobwebs of weak spots

We ought to bear in mind right away

It is never too late to mend our ways

But for this to be a reality

We shall have to be adopt sincerity

Replete with goodness and purity

As our true and enduring dharma

Both in thoughts and in karma

And imprint an sattvic idea forever in our mind

It is never too late to mend

Thus rid ourselves of the weaknesses which pervades in us

And walk with head held aloft

With sufficient graces of our lord.

THE LURE OF BAD HABIT IS VERY SEVERE

 We can get these bad habits with ease but once these are imbibed, it is virtually difficult to eredicate from our system. For example, if we win a in gambling, our greed for wining more such games for winning ‘some more’  if only we had exercised control in the intial stages of our bad habit, we could have not developed such a bad habit. What transpired in case of Pandavas in Mahabharta epic is a relevant lesson for us all. For winning more, the pandavas wagered their everything including the consort Dropati . Or it may be lust for sex  beyond marriage which sometimes puts us in critical situation when the same is detected at the later stage. Many of the families have been broken by this bad habit. While it is easy to fall prey to these bad habits, but difficult to erase these habits. But their consequences are really tragic ultimately.

THREE TENDENCIES OF HUMANS

Humans have three qualities or traits. A tendency of having balance in which goodness, constructive holistic ideals prevail besides a person lives virtuously, is in peace with himself and others around him. This is termed as sattvic tendency. It is a positive oriented quality and a person possessing this quality is upright, righteous and adjusts in any situation he/she is placed. This also symbolizes white.

Secondly, a person who posses the quality of excessive passion, is egocentric, considers himself/herself as the centre of attraction. This person is rajasvic in nature. He considers himself as self made person and wants everybody to follow him. This symbolises red or passion.

Thirdly, a person who is who is having imbalance in life, dull and inactive, ignorant besides disorder and chaos prevail. This person is tamasic in nature. He is always negative in his/her words and deeds. This sort of a person is always negative in words and deeds. This symbolizes black.

WE CAN CHANGE IF WE HAVE THE WILL TO CHANGE

 Our endeavour should be to change our habits – turn from black to white and living our life with positive orientation. This could be done through adoption of virtuous traits by shunning negative traits and replacing these with positive traits.

Whenever a sincere realization dawns on us, we mend our ways and thus make concerted but sincere efforts in order to make the journey of our life smoother without any cobwebs on our path. For real realization to come by, it is important to understand the habits and behaviour we have imbibed – both positive and negative in the light of situation we are placed. Be that as it may, we can make our life better by endeavouring to do better than before. If on the way, we get some bad habit, we ought to proacrively exert to pin point that one and attack that habit and do everything possible to rectify the same and make it positive, first by trial and error method and subsequenty it will become a positive one. For this to be reality it is a must that we erase the drab which exists there.

It is undisputable fact that we humans are the product of our own thoughts and actions. If our actions go counter to our perceived good intentions, then, sure enough, we have to change the course of action in the light of bad results of our actions.

    Will to change is a prime mover for inculcating positive change in us. Thanks and regards
