There is no better teacher than life. A teacher, who could probably introduce the best chapters of learning to you, and at the same time, might prepare you to embrace change and uncertainty in the simplest way. It’s neither absolutely black nor completely white. It is grey because it does both the things- teaching and punishing you for the purpose of self-good.
Do you remember the moral lessons learned during the elementary education? How far have you taken or absorbed them in your respective lives? If not every bit of it, then at least cherish a few parts of thesemoral leanings to calm your soul. Embrace these 10 moral lessons of life in your mind because sooner or later, you are definitely going to face them.
Lesson 1: Appreciate but not absorb
Have a sense of appreciation for people but never let their behavior influence your mannerism. Let your uniqueness fly high in the reigns of this universe. Your uniqueness makes the world diverse! Have the courage to take the responsibilities of your actions.
Lesson 2: Help others to help yourself
While healing somebody’s brokenness, you are healing your own withered parts. All human being are connected and if we are helping someone else, we are just helping ourselves. The same story goes with hatred too- hurt others to hurt your own self!
Lesson 3: Pain is evident and inevitable
You are more likely to face it. You can’t help it. But you can always prepare your mind for the lessons learned during the painful experiences. Pain is more or less depended on your response mechanism. It is the way you deal with it.
Lesson 4: Expectation is the root cause of pain:
May be you have started expecting too much from a situation or a person. May be you are too obsessed with your desires. May be this is the reason why you are hurting yourself too often.
Lesson 5: Death has a lesson to teach
Unless and until you have not acquainted the idea of death, the fear will continue to haunt you. All human fears get ultimately summed up with the fear of death. Thus, it is vital to gain familiarity with the idea of death to live free.
Lesson 6: Listen to the call of your heart
If you want to know someone deeply, know yourself first.The better you will be able to understand yourself, the better you will accept others. Befriend your souls, listen to the call of your heart, accept your weaknesses, and grow more profoundly.
Lesson 7: True love is giving and forgiving
If you are truly in love with someone, there are least chances of getting hurt. It is because true love is all about giving and forgiving. So even if your love is rejected or unrequited by those at whom it is directed, feel free to shower it. You are both the origin and destination of your love.
Lesson 8: Pleasure and Pain are two sides
They are two different sides of the same coin- so expecting one in life while dejecting the other is not possibly valid. With pleasure, there is always pain and vice versa.
Lesson 9: Truth is the ultimate Divinity
We cannot see God but we can always befriend an honest man. There is no better reward in the life of a man than the gift of trust and honesty.
Lesson 10: Don’t isolate your loneliness:
We are destined to visit and leave this world alone but still throughout our lives, we fear being alone. Embrace your loneliness and nurture it with the comfort of self-actualization. Confront your fear to stay alone.
