1284th BLOG POST -->>
I received a wonderful message on my Whatsapp yesterday. I generally don't read the forwarded messages that I receive but somehow this message attracted me towards it. Sometimes it happens that some things happen for you. According to the message, there are four yugas that are accepted in Hinduism.
1. Satya Yug
In Satya Yug, it is said that the fight was between two worlds- Devalok and Asuralok where Devalok played good and Asuralok played evil. Both Devalok and Asuralok were two different WORLD. Eventually, Devalok, the good, won.
2. Treta Yug
Ramayana is a story that 's based in this yug. Here, the fight was between Lord Rama and Ravana where Rama was good and Ravana was evil. Both were rulers of two different COUNTRIES. At last, we know who conquered the victory.
3. Dwapara Yug
In Dwapara Yug, the fight was between Pandavas and Kauravas. Here, Pandavas were the good and Kauravas were evils. Here, both good and evil were from the SAME FAMILY.
As you must have observed, the distance between Good and Evil is only getting smaller with time- from two different world to two different countries to almost in the same family. The 4th Yug is Kalyug which is the current time in which we are living. Where's the evil now? In our friends? No. In our teachers? No. In our parents? No. In our siblings? No. The good and evil- both are within us now. The fight is between the good and evil in us. It's upon us to decide what we allow to win- The Good or The Evil. The competition and stress in all the Yugas have been the same so there is no assumption that today is the world of competition hence we do not have liberty to chose the good within us.
Who is a criminal? The criminal is the one who lets the evil inside him win over the good which is also present inside himself. He couldn't realize the good within him because of immaturity and traits that shouldn't be the part of one's identity. It takes a normal man to turn rapist in just 5-10 minutes. These 10 minutes where he could have let his goodness represent himself, he chose to let his evil in form of lust conquer himself. And that leads him to jail for life. Are other men not roaming with women alone? Does other men do not find themselves enclosed in a room sometimes where they have a lady with them? Why don't they rape? Are those men unable to see the legs below skirts and cleavage above the top? But they do not let their evil win against their good.
Similarly, the thief let their greed win against the contentedness. The murderer let his anger win against the silence. The abuser lets his foul language win over his good vocabulary. All the traits such as jealousy, anger, greed, lust, pride etc should not be given a chance to win against the traits of silence, satisfaction, contentedness, kindness, helpfulness, obedience, discipline, punctuality etc. Kalyug is seeing only crimes and growing number of criminals just because the fight is within us and people are surrendering their goodness in the hands of evilness. If this is how it continues, we are going to kill ourselves soon and face the consequences later on.
Today, human is scared of human. We are unable to trust a stranger because we do not know if he is supporting the good or evil inside him. Let's focus only towards the good traits God have given us and stop claiming that it's our personality since childhood hence nothing can be done. Everything is possible. If Goodness have experienced victory in every Yugas, it is definitely possible even in Kalyuga as we have ourselves as opponent and we know how good we are. So let's start being kind and throw away all the traits which is making us evil even for a single person around us. Let's not cause pain in anyone's life because of our decision of walking a small path of evilness. Do meditation. Do Yoga. Go for running alone. Sit in garden. Enjoy rains. Engage yourself in your hobby. Do whatever that brings out the good within you and purify this world with your goodness. :-)
