The Holy Bible, Joshua 1:9 – ” Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
The Quran, Surah 5, the fifth verse- “As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, He will fully recompense them, and shower them with His grace. As for those who disdain and turn arrogant, He will commit them to painful retribution. They will find no lord beside God, nor a savior.”
The Bhagwad Geeta, the fourth chapter, and the seventh verse- ” Whenever there is a decline in righteousness and an increase in unrighteousness, O Arjun, at that time I manifest myself on earth.”
In lieu of a beautiful and peaceful life, one wants to have some intangible power. One wants to have the power through which one could rule over the whole world, but for one’s own selfish motives. Truly may have said somebody, “Unselfish sympathy is rarity in this world”. How surprising it is! The very same child who is brought up by his or her holy mother with love and affection starts making for hatred, jeolousy and unchastity all of a sudden. The child forgets everything and stops caring the way he used to care earlier, not to speak of his love.
The situation has gone downhill, and it is getting worsened day by day, isn’t it? A middle-aged woman can not trust an eighteen years old guy, an eighteen years old girl can not trust a middle-aged man, and not to speak of those who belong to the very same age group.
One indeed needs to be bounteous to trust others of late. But loss of trust is what is responsible for the lack of love among we children of that very same mother. One who trusts others is looked upon as someone who is immature. This is perhaps what KALIYUGA is all about. May be, this Kaliyuga is what makes a child forgets what chastity means; this Kaliyuga is what makes a man differentiate between his daughter and others’, between his mother and others’, and between his sister and others’. As if it brings with it a disease that makes all these things possible. Indeed! It is nothing but a curse.
That which has a beginning must have an end. And there must be an end of this, for it had a beginning as well. I look forward to the day when we get rid of this Kaliyugya for good. Believe in your karmas, for your karmas are causes, and they must have effects. Do good, and good will follow you in the end. For a cause is what an effect is all about. Spread love, love, and only love.
