Be Careful What You Sow!
When it comes to some facts of life, it doesn’t really matter if you are religious or not, if you believe in God and karma or are agnostic or an atheist – there are some universal facts and laws that you can not escape. The one currently calling the shots can be summed up in a single word – ‘Comeuppance’ – meaning, you get what you deserve… much like the current Pandemic’s ongoing punch-line (and that continues to be, quite literally, one hell of a punch!) to humanity – ‘You had it coming’! And this is further corroborated by independent events like forest fires and floods taking place globally.
An analogy comes to mind – for the faithful believers… When Big Mommy (Mother Nature) has decided that it’s the time of reckoning cause the kids just won’t listen and are getting increasingly out of hand, she calls in Big Daddy (God), who will fall in line and bring on the nasty – just like it happens in most Parsi households! For the sceptics, non-believers shielded behind the veil of science… Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
All things happen for a reason. As we sow, so shall we reap… and we reap at all levels – right from individuals to the human race itself. The current worldwide situation, then, reflects the comeuppance of the entire human species. They say, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and considering that this is definitely not the first epidemic to have hit us, maybe it’s time to be that much more careful about what we’ve been sowing – as individuals, as a community, as humanity.
Have a good weekend!
