THE GOLDEN THOUGHT
It sometimes seems to us, that two different men live in us. One which all acts perfectly and we present this man to the world and it is also the second one , who we put to shame, and we conceal this. In every man exists something like this, how the internal discord and cohesionless. Everyone would like to be good, and only makes acts, which he often does not understand alone.
Why is it so? Therefore, that man is not God, it is not also an angel, nor a superhuman, and only a small pilgrim in long, far road of his life. His own weaknesses make him incritical and gentle in relation to others. Someone, who is uncritical in the face of himself , he will be hard and incapable to understand in others. He will not be able to comfort anybody, to add a courage and to forgive. Happiness and friendship are there where men are sensitive, gentle and soft in words, and in mutually contacts. — Phil Bosmans
Phil Bosmans is the Flemish Catholic priest, a monk of Monfortaners. For over forty years he's lived in a small monastery in Kontich near Antwerp. His optimistic prescriptions on life, creating in form of aphorisms or poems,it is a result of the deep belief, of the own experience and the understanding in the suffering , poorest and lonely men. In his poem he says that:
"I will not stay on this world eternally"
I will not stay on this world eternally.
Between eternity and my birth,
and the eternity after my death
I have the measured time of stopping exactly
on our small planet.
I can not withdraw it , nor prolong also.
My time is settled pitilessly.
And so what? It can say one with whole certainty :
It mustn't be sad,It should stay on the sunny side,
and let the time runs with its rhythm.
It is well to delight with the light, love ,
men and beautiful events.
To these who did not find the sunny place of stopping
to beautify the day.
Let my time will not be a street of
fast movement between a cradle and a grave,
treat the place of stopping will be in the sun.
Life can be hard,terrible hard.
Life be able to be heavy,terrible heavy.
there are moments , when you feel this
in the deepest layers of your soul.
In such painful moments
every man looks for a consolation.
It without a support and consolation
it isn't impossible to live.
I'm agreeing with him that nobody can live and stay on this world eternally.
so we should live and behave like this our life was only one moment and we can't take anything to our graves.It is impossible and we should live don't to harm others.
Have heart and look with your heart.
