There are two sides of truth one ugly and another bright. We often fail to see the bright side of it. The same truth can be good for somebody and bad for another. Do we always accept the truth? In most cases we don’t when that’s ugly. There is no question of acceptance when it goes in favor of our will and not the vice versa.
It’s really difficult to accept a bitter truth. It is because of the fear of social acceptance as we feel doing so can isolate us from the rest of our society. In this process sometimes we cause harm to others to protect our self-interest. People in power don’t hesitate to harm others to hide a bitter truth. We are self-centered and it’s all because of our self-interest. We fail to protect a greater interest as we feel it’s not our cause of concern.
It will be lot easier to accept an ugly truth if we can focus our attention on contribution to society and feel ourselves an integral part of it. Nobody can live an independent life away from the society. To contribute generously we need to free ourselves from all desire and ego. Here we have saintly behavior as we don’t want to possess anything or claim something to be mine. This me and mine changes to us and ours.
Punishment is necessary for wrong doing as reward is there for good work. For the first time in my life i am not angry with anybody even when a decision went against my self-interest. Death is necessary for a new life and we all should welcome that if it comes our way for a good reason. We often don’t accept the truth because of fear of death. This sort of self-denial restricts further growth. If we accept the truth, death may or may not come our way. If that comes our new life will be full of glory and we can serve mankind well. If we don’t accept the truth, death is imminent. In this case we can’t serve mankind well with all past thoughts even when we get a new life.
In the way to contribution I have felt divine presence and guidance. I feel like what I am today and have with me now is because of my society and I need to give it back at the time of need. We all have limited span of life and we need to do more in less time. I don’t know anything that gives more happiness than the joy of giving. It gives inexplicable pleasure and satisfaction. It enriches our life and enhances the joy of living.
It’s far better to die accepting a truth rather to live a life on falsehood. We always try to portray an image and create false impression outside that we are not. Our judiciary will have less work to do bringing justice to people if we all accept the truth unconditionally. If all our leaders accept the truth and work in the development of people, there will be no corruption at all.
By accepting the truth we help ourselves and everybody in the society. Here we keep the door open for further growth. Truth only prevails and our act of acceptance cleanses our inner self – the true human being in us. Never fear death in the way of truth. Feel the divine presence and guidance. Death gives birth to a new life and helps us become better human beings.
