Think a second; can we live without knowing what is right and what is wrong for us? Not at all. We can’t think. It is impossible. We can’t live our life.

What is right and what is wrong

Think a second; can we live without knowing what is right and what is wrong for us? Not at all. We can’t think. It is impossible. We can’t live our life.

Suppose if anybody asks us to set a fire on the roof of our house, and we do the same. Then what would happen? Obviously, our house caught fire. But can you do the same? No. Never. Because you know, if you set a fire on the roof of your house, it will catch fire and burn your entire house. You become homeless. You will lose your shelter. You never witness your house in fire. If you do so, then it is a foolish act. You couldn’t commit such a blunder. Even you can’t think in your wildest dream. You’re not insane. You’re not absent minded.

Again suppose you are asked to commit a crime, and in its return you will awarded a huge amount of wealth, and thereafter you wouldn’t need to work anything in your entire life. You will live luxurious life forever. Can you go ahead with this offer? Without taking a second, your answer would be strong NO. You would say how I could commit a crime to become a rich. No. No. Never. Never. Why would you say like this? Because you know what is right and what is wrong for you. You know very well. There is a trap set for you. Once you caught in it, you never freed yourself. It is not to make you rich, but it is to make you criminal throughout your life. You can’t live your life as a criminal.

Everybody knows that life is full of uncertainties. Anything can happen in life. Good or bad. Success or failure. Nobody could predict about it. It is beyond human imaginations. Forget about it. Okay. Fine.

Now if by chance, in any juncture of your life, suppose your life demands from you to choose the path of wrong means to get success in your life, then what would be your decision. Would you proceed further for the same? Really, it is a big question for anybody. It is a tough decision for you to go for it. There may be two possibilities. First, if you’ve already seen some success in your life, then it would be easy for you to deny it straightway. Second, if you haven’t yet seen any success in your life and in every step of your life, you’ve got the hard slaps of failures. Then you might be taking some chances to see the first glimpses of success. Here is the margin of committing error is much more. Now it is depend upon you, how much you know yourself, i.e. how much you know what is right for you and what is wrong for you. Decision is always be yours. If you take the right decision, your life will be on the right tract and if not, on the wrong tract. Your decision is depend upon what you want right now, what are your needs, and what is the position of situation, in your favor or against you. But the fact of the matter is that one who knows what is right for him, he will always go for it no matter what happens. He will never fall in dilemmas. He will never take wrong decision. And he never be the part of wrong ones.

However, there are many incidents that happened in our life when we are bound to commit such things which are wrong for us. But we have to force ourselves for the sake of happiness of our dear ones and for the sake of their lives.

Now let’s take a small story, one day a poor man’s wife met an accident and seriously injured. Immediately, he took his wife to the hospital. Now the dilemma is that he has not a single coin in his pocket to pay the hospital fee. The hospital authority doesn’t admit his wife until he wouldn’t deposit the money. The poor man asked for help. But no one was there for his help. He pleaded the doctors to cure his injured wife. The doctors agreed. But they asked him to arrange the money as soon as possible, otherwise they wouldn’t operate his injured wife. How could the poor man see his wife dying. He went out and asked help from his near and dear friends and relatives. But nobody was out there to help him. He laid down in disgraced. There was a man standing nearby. He came closed to him and asked about his problems. The poor man narrated the entire episode. The man promised him whatever money he wanted for his wife’s treatment, but in return he has to do a job for him. The poor man agreed. The man gave the money and asked the poor man to deliver a bag to the same hospital. The poor man happily went to the hospital with a bag. But he never returns from there. After a few hours the hospital was exploded with a loud bang.

In this real time anecdote, the moral is that the harsh situation created so much of hurdles for a man that he becomes helpless. He can’t think. He can’t act. Even he knows what is right and what is wrong for him, he has bound to commit such things.

For the wrong things that happen in our day to day life is not because of what we do wrong, but what the situations created for us. Even we know everything, both right and wrong, we commit such blunders. Because of our wants. Because of our needs. And of course time.
