7 Lies by which society misguides you !!

Society lies

“Society has become so fake that, the truth actually bothers people” Unknown     Image by jacqueline macou from Pixabay

It’s 4.5 minute read.

Why why all succumb to the society, having its own views on everything & anything under the the Sun ?

Society never tires you with its time tested comments ,since you are addicted to the concept of society’s benchmarks,right from your birth to till the day you die.

In other words society wants you to play by its rule book.

Do you remember the famous personality Joseph Goebbels and his quote…

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

By now I know that You are wondering which society I am talking about ? And where is that society located ?

My friend,this society is nothing but your so called

  • Ourselves
  • well-wishers (including your parents,sorry if I am brutal),
  • uncles,aunties
  • your neighbors
  • your teachers
  • your friends
  • your community
  • your daily news papers,TVs,movies
  • Regular advertisements
  • Your favorite movie stars
  • Your social media
  • Your political discussions,tastes and narratives

you name it….you have it!

Society in other word is a set  of people around you all the time, trying to manipulate you to their advantage.

1.Unconditional Love exists

A rubbish,and a lie uttered time immemorial.To be frank ,there is no such thing in the relationships.

Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed. Albert Eisenstein

Our love is directly proportional to how our partners,relatives,friends etc make us feel.

Simply put…. any body gets hurt if their expectation is not fulfilled.This is human nature and there is no escape from it.

Don’t hurt yourself by dreaming/expecting ‘unconditional Love’. Also you can never give unconditional love.Mark my statement.

2.Marriages are made in Heaven

Hmm…If it is so….just answer me why there are so many divorces ?

Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside equally desperate to get out. Michel de Montaigne

Is it true,some say marriage is a life long torture !

Marriage: A legal or religious ceremony by which two persons of the opposite sex solemnly agree to harass and spy on each other for ninety-nine years, or until death do them join. Edbert Hubbard

Wife & Husband-why can’t they be best friends for life ?

3.Your life is a meaningful minimum journey to be enjoyed to the maximum

Another thrash. And in spite, all the modern Gurus encourage us to lead a meaningful life.( self defeating )

What made Gautama Buddha get enlightenment ? It’s because of human suffering.Do we have similar God’s grace to get enlightened ?

Life is full of misery, and you are intelligent enough to accept that it’s painful to lead the life and death is the only permanent solution.Since we can’t die….at least let us accept the truth.

Happiness in your life is only for the time being that too in bits, and rest of the times you are busy whining.

“It’s a misery to be born,a pain to live,a trouble to die” St.Bernard of Clairvaux

Still, temporary happiness can come from minor things like,you playing with toys in your childhood, your first Kiss,sex now & then,massage,hot bath, friendship,a short travel,one night stand,A champagne,Receiving a lovely gift or a comforting hug etc.etc.. Drugs can take you to another level.

4.It’s better if you know your life partner before your marriage

Really?………another Utter lie.

No partner in love relationship..should feel that he has to give up an essential part of himself to make it viable May Sarton

Each individual is unique.Only sustained friendship in the form of total understanding between the life partners endures the marriage.

Life partners too expect personal space though they know each other so long !

Even if you knew your partner before,it’s not a guarantee for a successful marriage.

When you can’t understand the people, though you spend your whole life with them,(example parents vs children,children vs parents,siblings vs siblings),then why should you give importance to knowing your partner before?.

Understanding becomes easier after the marriage once you both know your limitations and your strengths mutually over the time.

5.Money won’t make you happy

Ha ha ….Without money you cease to exist.

My dear friend, money is everything.It brings you, both happiness and pleasure.

“Lack of money is the root of all evil”      George Bernard Shah

We work / study for what ? is this not to earn money and live happily ?

People with more money are satisfied with their life style and are in a position to help others too.

He who marries for love without money has GOOD NIGHTS & SORRY DAYS   unknown

6. Boys’ won’t cry

Virtually a child conditioning !!

“People cry not because they are weak,because they’ve been too strong for a long time” unknown

Boys too have feelings ,emotions, excitements and stages of sadness.

Otherwise why will Dr.Sivan,ISRO( The Indian Space Research Organisation ) chairman became teary eyed,when the Chandrayan mission was not successful ?There are many famous men like Andre Agassi and Obama too had teary eyes.

7.Blood is thicker than water

Unfortunately blood relatives are not interested in you,since they are struggling with their own problems and you have to fend yourself.

you can’t blame them.

‘Blood is always thicker than water,but some family members at times are on blood thinners’ unknown

Many times friends come to your rescue.The understanding with the friends anytime better than the blood relatives.

Ego and Jealousy play spoilsport in blood relationships.Don’t play victim card here !!

Today’s daily prayer to reap the fruits of Lent 71

Here we are in Lent,
You O Lord are ever great;
You are ever so great;
Ever so great and mighty
Are you, O king;
O heavenly King;
Mighty is your holy name;
No name can ever be
To yours compared;
Your works are ever good;
Miraculous and great;
We will sing praise to you
All the days of our lives;
We will go on our knees
And adore you;
We will glorify your name;
From morning till night,
We will praise your name;
For forty days, we will
Remember, in a special way
Our Lord and saviour
Jesus christ,
His suffering on the road
To Calvary,
Under the weight of a heavy cross;
We shall see him suffer;
We shall see him fall and rise;
We shall see him beaten;
We shall see him sweat blood;
All for our sake,
Moved by love;
May you help us O Lord,
To accompany our Saviour
On this painful journey
In deeper prayer than we have
Ever before prayed;
Help us to learn from him
To love others
As he has loved us;
To be strong in prayer;
So that we will reap
The fruits of this Lent,
For the greater glory
Of his holy name;
We make our prayer
Through Christ our Lord,
Amen!

Prayer for the suffering people of the world

Almighty God and father,
All over the world,
Many of your children are suffering;
And are helpless;
They do not have the means
Or the knowhow to help themselves,
Dear God, do something for them;
The people of Australia;
The people of other disaster zones;
Those in war torn zones;
Who are either fighting
And killing themselves,
Or dying of other causes,
Many are on the run;
People are perishing
From hunger,
Sickness
And lack of medical care;
Almighty God,
Everything is under your control;
You have the means
To solve all the problems
Of the world;
You can stop suffering;
Hunger,
Sickness;
Malnutrition;
You can stop wars,
And the killings going on;
You can make peace
And happiness prevail
In the world,
Please, God, do it for us.
Amen!

The Glory Which Shall be Revealed

One thing that is common to all human being is that we live in a world that is full of pain and challenges which means that at some point in our lives everyone of us will go through or experience these challenges one way or the other.

Some have gone through and come out of it, some are currently in it. One thing we should know is that it is not out of place to experience challenges especially as a child of God and the higher we grow the higher the challenges.

According to John 16:33, There will always be challenges in this world but thank God He has won the victory

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.

Challenges comes in different forms and ways, it could be in form of attack on your Health, Finance, Family, Academics, work, relationship.

As child of God if you are not deeply rooted in in the word when you go through these trials you can easily be overwhelmed and start second guessing your faith thereby allowing all sorts of ungodly thoughts access into your mind and if not resisted immediately can cause one to backslide and miss the way.

The devil which is our common enemy is always in contention with our minds, so give no opportunity to him.

Essentially, challenges does two things; it can either make of break which all depends on how you react to it especially in managing it.

Know that no matter what you are going through, you are not the first and you are also not alone. Jesus went through it, Job went it it and what about the apostles? They are did and came out victorious.

God’s promise to us in Isaiah 43:2

When we passes through the waters, He will be with us; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow us: when we walk through the fire, we shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon us.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. Romans 5:3

This is so reassuring and to know that God is and will always be with us irrespective of the circumstances we might or currently going through in life.

With this assured promises from God to us we should have the right attitude and mindset especially whenever we face any challenge in life. Instead of crying and fretting over that unpleasant situation, speak to that situation and remind the problem who and how big your God is.

Encourage yourself in the Lord, speak faith, speak hope, speak victory, speak life.

  • Tell that sickness you are healed by His strips and your body is the temple of God.
  • Tell that failure that stirs you in the face that you are more than a conqueror.
  • Remind that sorrow that the joy of the Lord is your strength.
  • Tell that lack that your God owns the cattle upon a thousand hills and He’s your sufficiency.
  • Tell that fear God has given you the spirit of power, love and sound mind.
  • Tell that delay that you will wait till your change comes, it may seem slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.


Many thanks for stopping by, until next time..

May God give you more and more mercy, peace, and love.

Untold suffering

Are you aware
That millions of people
The world over
Live on air?
How many full plates
A day do you savour?
And are you aware
That people return
To their creator
Like raindrops
From the sky
On a daily basis?
There is untold suffering
On our planet;
But only some people
Experience that heat;
Some swim in a pool
Of opulence;
With no idea
Of the wildfire
Of suffering raging
On the mountain.
Humanity has to return
To the drawing board
To reset the rules.
We dont have a scarcity
Of bread;
We have a poor distribution system;
Shouting a clear
And loud call for revision.

Soft, gentle hands of love

If you have been tortured
By love,
You may hate to hear
The word mentioned;
Many people have suffered
In the cruel hands of love;
And today,
They are most suspicious
Of love;
We all want to be touched
By the soft hands of love;
But more often than not,
It’s with the cruel ones
Love touches us.
Thus, pits us againt love.
Have you been touched
By the soft hands of love
Or the cruel hands of love?
May the cruel hands of love
Never touch you!
May you everyday be caressed
By the soft, gentle hands
Of love!

Suffering

He suffered
On the way to Calvary;
He suffered with his cross,
He suffered on the cross;
He suffered in the hands
Of cruel people;
Are you suffering;
Stop it if you can;
You were not born
To suffer;
You bring suffering
On yourself
Through your doings,
Your failures
Your disobedience;
But often also,
Despite your effort
To keep away suffering
It will still take hold
Of you,
You must take it
With fortitude,
And let His will be done;
He accepted suffering;
He bore it with courage;
In your suffering
Turn to Him for strength
Like his;
He will grant you
His grace
To bear your suffering
While it lasts.
