How to treat people properly |Mohanji
How much time do you have on earth? You don’t know, let’s say until death. Within this time, what we want to do, we should do. Or whatever our desires are, whatever our expressions are, we should accomplish it. There is no question of,” Should I do something?” If you feel you should do it, you should do it.
The God-given opportunity for interaction is when we are alive. But look around in the world, in your own society; what do we do? When somebody dies, we go to that house. When somebody is living, we don’t go there; we avoid visiting. But the moment somebody dies, we go to the house. What does it have to do with the dead man? He can’t see if you are coming or going; he can’t see your feelings; he can’t see anything! But we go to that place after death. Isn’t it ironic?
The second point is, we go to the graveyard and place flowers. But when the person was alive, we probably never gave them even one flower! But we go to the graveyard and lay flowers when that person can neither see nor experience or feel your love.
Thirdly, we say good things about dead people, and we ridicule them while they are alive. So what is the use of telling something good after that person is dead? They can’t hear it.
Look at every aspect like that; then we understand how we are living our life. This is just a mirror we can look at so that we know how we operate.
