ie and eg as we are all aware are the abbreviated short forms of that is and for example.
People are worried about what’s ahead? Life is worr-“ie”-d about what’s running within and across our heads.
Life wonders at times that we b-“eg”-in with something and then completely forget that we began after all? Here it is directly pointing to our heads; our minds; our vision and our attitudes towards our lives.
To simplify the understanding, it is like this. We put one objective in our heads, run after another objective in our minds and then pursue yet another disparate objective in our vision?
We are beholding multiplicities of divergent goals and objectives that we want to attain. We diligently strive, but in the bargain tend to forget that we are elongating, expanding and stretching ourselves akin to a rubber band, but why?
Then where it concerns “eg”; we want others to set examples, to prove their credentials, whether it is the Government, whether it is the Teachers; whether it is the Lawyers; whether it is the Taxation auditing officials; whether it is the Doctors; whether it is our Colleagues at Work; whether it is our friends at School, Colleges and Universities; whether it is our Family Members at home; whether it is God; whether it is the Engineers; whether it is the Police; whether it is the Weather; whether it is the Cost and Standard of Living; whether it is the Covenants, Commandments, Laws, Rules and Regulations and so on and so forth; it is always being whether others and not whether we? How come? How can we be exempted from being accountable and liable for what is our collective consciousness? When we legitimately endeavor to take charge and tread on the pathways of ensuring the correct manner and procedures of living are duly observed; where we are consistently practicing righteousness in all that we think, do and express; then we are actually setting an example for others, and the impetus that is there will amazingly emerge and evolve by itself without us having to beckon and remind or instigate or taunt, for when we are completing our part of the picture, the picturization will thereafter get picturized fulfillingly on a prioritized basis as nature knows and sows.
That is why if we do not truly know, let us knot just keep riding on the wave of assumptions for that could lead us helter skelter and then we are retreating back to start all over again, but why?
Why not in the first place itself honestly fulfill our respective obligations and do what is truly correct, fair and appropriate rather than being reprimanded, scolded, mocked or feeling a loss of self esteem? Why?
Others did not mean to hurt us with the reminders, it is our way of interpreting that caused the hurt more than anything else, since for example if someone does not do something that they are expected to do and then the responsibility is falling upon our shoulders, the complete blame and carelessness attribution would fall square upon our shoulders, would we like that? No for sure, then why do we expect and put others under the microscope and evade by shifting ourselves away from the true scope of living please?
Let’s be realistic, these few words are not intending to focus on the shortcomings but rather evoking your conscious awareness to awaken before it is too late because sometimes some habits become so ingrained that they keep leading to more and more of those same/similar types of habits and indulgence in all that is self defeating, so regardless of what may have been; this very moment, make a promise that you will improve your lives for the better and be assured that nature, the world and the universe will always be there with you even if you may not be able to actually notice the visible signs of their participation for how things will work out is depending integrally on how you will work in, within your head, within your heart, within your soul, within your being; the beliefs that you hold and the vision that you envision about you and your gracious life, be well, take care and all the best, God bless.
