Right from the birth we have the freedom of choice and as we grow up, our conscious mind makes choice based on the belief system. Belief system is formed by our own values, thoughts and attitude towards situations that we encounter.
We see from the perspective of right and wrong. Even though it is difficult to uphold righteous act, we chose the right path for different reasons. Sometimes we do right just for the sake of doing right.
In my perspective, doing easy things can define our attitude towards risk taking behavior. Our attitude will keep us in unproductive safe zone, which later on turns to be overwhelmingly painful. Sometimes in life, we need to take a stand in favor of things that are not easy because they are right.
For example, showing empathy on needy people in disturbing situations and supporting them requires bold heart. That is the right thing to do. Behaving irresponsibly and ignoring the situation is the easy option.
There are so many examples that we come across in our daily life – It’s easy to ignore! It’s hard to forgive! It’s hard to understand the issues! It’s hard to discuss about the root causes of problems!
Doing right thing even in unfavorable situations is very much required because, at the end of the day we are products of our actions that we make.
Above picture depicts that, our conscious mind gets stimuli from surroundings. Stimuli are processed in the form of thoughts. Thoughts are generated based on our attitude and they determine our course of action.
So, we need to be aware of our thoughts and values. That eventually helps in taking decision which contributes to welfare.
Do what is right, but not what is easy!
