Prasanna bond – 007 – Part 2

You can read part 1 in the following link.

Though Part 1 was a light hearted post, it pained me to see students copy, not realizing the consequences of there actions. Well the question did i realize it when i used to do it when i was studying, nope i didnt. In fact i used to be expert at copying. The answer i used to give myself was

” dude i know its wrong, but you need to get marks now, next time improve, its after all only a class test, not the final exam ”

A tinch of guilt used to pop up, “what if you get more than your friends who have studied, worked hard for this  ?”

” My amazing mind used to give me the answer ” Copy, but be just ensure you dont attempt all the questions “. In fact sometimes i have corrected the mistakes of peoples notebooks i used to copy from. Again my mind would go,

see you did a good job isnt it.

Anyways why is this such a big issue.

Reason no 1: – It makes you weak.

Have you ever seen anybody copying confidently or have you copied confidently. When you are looking into other person paper, a simple observation of your actions would show that your eyes, heads are all down.

If by mistake you get caught, the first thing you say is a lie.

whats wrong with the head going down, big deal just another lie isnt it.

It makes you weak, next time you are given a challenge in real life, you refuse to use your head, your own intelligence, fear drives you. You are mentally conditioning your mind to be weak, your intelligence to be unused.

Reason no 2 – Root cause of corruption

Corruption happens because of the attitude nobody will know, i can do it and get away with it. When the biggest of politicians, leaders do wrong things, take money its simply because they believe nobody is going to catch them. They can get away with it. There is a tremendously huge flaw in this argument. You dont feel good do you when you take a bribe or do not do your duty. So fact of the matter is that you know. When a person gets caught he or she again lies, same as the case with copying, makes them weak. Now would you like to become a leader. A weak one or a strong one.

“That which elevates one is Dharma.”

Indian spiritual knowledge is so pertinent for todays world.

Are your actions ensuring your head is held high, spirit is elevated or ….???

How you want to be is in your hands

How you want to be is in your hands

I drew this in paint, drop in nice nice comments about it. 🙂

I have learnt this the hard way, never will i do an action that will make me put my head down. If i do it i will accept it. Never to repeat it. Am i there yet, not really but my entire life i know what i will strive for. 🙂

All this becomes so much easier when you have a Guru in your life. 🙂
