While I have always held a view that there is nothing called “RIGHT” or “WRONG” in this world. Bring in the notion of “ETHICS” and “COMMITMENT” and my viewpoint is further complicated. I have always looked upon incidents unfolding in my life as “RIGHT” and “WRONG”.
Tiger Woods escapes an accident unhurt and reveals on his website-
“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.”
A visitor responds to his comments as-
“I’m sorry but, “I am far short of perfect” doesn’t do it for me. You may be right that you owe us nothing, but I believe that you would not be “Tiger Woods” without the public behind you. I am 65 years old, I have watched you and respected you, I have wanted my grandson to become a man like you, a man who I thought had the strength to fight for his goals in life. But, if you can lie, cheat, and hurt your loved ones so much, and then say,” I am far short of perfect” you are definitely not a role model for my grandson. Many public figures think they owe us nothing, but sadly, it is you we look to for our goals in life. We need role models to point to and tell our children, and grandchildren, they should work hard and follow in your footsteps. You and many others have taken that away from us. You may think it is wrong for me to feel this way, but you have not only let your loved ones down you have let us down too.”
Just like the concept of “equilibrium” in Economics, life also tends to be in equilibrium and with changes happening around; life tends to find its new equilibrium every time. There is also a concept called “Law of Attraction”, which states that we get what we intend or desire in our lives. Nature around us aligns and is always evolving to create situations and circumstances around that will lead us to fulfill our desires.
Law of attraction works in such a way that it does not differentiate between the legitimate and illegitimate desires of humans. It’s just the function of how intense the desire is.
When we do something “WRONG”, a shift in equilibrium happens which impacts the equilibrium of our close and dear ones. A “guilt” factor starts building inside leading to voices like- they suffer for no fault of theirs but mine…I need to come out of it…
At this instance the law of attraction gets into action and starts creating situations that will help fulfill this new desire.
Tiger escapes the accident and over the next couple of days confesses- an outcome of Law of attraction. I wish he overcomes this and lives happily ever after. I wish we all should be as fortunate as Tiger to be able to come out of our guilt’s and at first place not let our conscience die.
