People are good because they are good in hiding their bad.
A dark side is what each of us desires, but which each of us can least afford. Darkness is, in reality, nothing but the lack of light. So, darkness is natural, light is unnatural. Yet, it is light that defines the civilized traits of a species. Primitiveness is natural, being civilized is not, and yet, being civilized is what makes us superior to all other species, because we have developed the civilized faculties of conscience in our brain, overpowering the innate primitiveness, that served us well in the wild. The pursuit of goodness leads to greatness, but the pursuit of greatness, whether by a man or a nation, leads to ruin. Good men build; great men destroy. They destroy because they try to control something other than themselves and that always leads to destruction.
It is the responsibility, yet the individual choice, of each of us to use the light we have to dispel the work of darkness, because if we do not, the power of falsehood rises. Through our inaction it becomes stronger, and a more potent force. It can even lead to the dimming of the light of all humanity born on this planet. That is why we struggle. That is why we fight to contribute to the confirmation of what is good, to seal our compact with love within our own lives and within our world. Good people always find goodness in others. Whereas goodness makes greatness teachable, greatness makes goodness touchable.
Life is more than being happy; it is to impact lives and live for the good of your generation.You are at the same time, a god and a demon. When the god in you lacks nourishment, the demon gets hold of your entire psyche. But if you keep fueling the god within, with courage, conscience and compassion, it keeps the demon under its conscientious control through the cortical gateway of your prefrontal cortex. Thus, racial attitude can be kept in check – prejudices can be kept in check so can be supremacist egotism. Acknowledge the good around you and the simplicity it takes to recognize it.
Happiness induced morality does not say anything about the content of a person’s character. The real mettle of an individual’s character is revealed during the times of misery. For the ignorant, pain is a curse, but for the wise, it is a blessed moment for reinforcing one’s inner goodness and morality. Doing good in this world, and being kind and being honest and noble is really underrated. And I think you have. I think everyday people have enormous power, and they have enormous power for good, and if you’re good to people, the world is a better place. Accepting evil is worse than committing evil.
The world seems to want us to be sad and angry because bad things frequently happen. But I say we should feel the opposite. We should be happy and cheerful because good things happen. We should be delighted to see the sun rise and stars glow and rainbows color stormy skies. We should savor every simple breath and eat each meal with gratitude. We should slumber in sweet dreams and relish moments of laughter and love. We should take more notice of the joys and kindnesses that do exist, still dictating the actions of millions of good people all over the world. Life is filled with pleasant moments, not just grief. We should be happy because this is true. Think about every good thing in your life right now. Free yourself of worrying. Let go of the anxiety, breathe. Stay positive, all is well. Happiness is not the Achievement of Dreams.It is the Path to Dreams.
There is always going to be evil as long as goodness lives on.
