Wickedness

“To see and listen to the wicked is already the beginning of wickedness.” Confucius

This is our problem. There is wickedness all around. With things like TV and yes even Internet we are so much more exposed to everything, including wickedness, that we do get influenced. I mean when you think that some people do what they can to get an ASBO as though it were a badge of honour, then no wonder that the world and our society is deteriorating the way it is.

Wickedness has a way of spreading. Think of it as the single bad apple in a bowl of apples. Before you know it, they are all bad, although it was only one bad apple and a bowl full of good apples. The good apples never change the bad one to good!!

Work and life

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Confucius

It is amazing how many people just work because they have to. Considering how many years of your life you spend working, why not do something you enjoy. Perhaps you cannot afford to change your job, but then change your perspective of it. Find out what you like and enjoy doing it. Look towards what you enjoy and not what you don’t. But most of all, if you choose a job you enjoy, it won’t feel like work and you will be getting paid for it.

It is a life philosophy that was true more than 2000 years ago and is still true today!
