You know that it is wrong before you know it is right because wrong is not right and will be the first to say hello. — James R. Yarbrough
We were not put on this earth to hurt ourselves or anyone else. A thought such as this does not come from a good place. It is not the way to think. When we think right, we feel right. We will then do right and no wrong can come from right. The wrong of someone else does not make your wrong right. Two wrongs are still wrong.
There are two forces in our lives of which we have control. They are the forces of right and wrong. This you know only if you are taught. If not, how you act will tell you so because wrong will not leave you along until it is done right. It is a painful lesson to learn on your own. Changing what is right will not make what is right better. You can do better as long as you are right. You change what is wrong to make it right. First, you have to know the truth and then you live it. If you don’t know better, you cannot do better until you know.
Doing the wrong thing but thinking it is right is wrong. Doing the wrong thing and knowing it is not right is wrong. The result is the same for both. It is still wrong. How you think tells it all. When you change how you think how you feel and act will change. Wrong things can happen when you do right. They will not come from you doing right. It will come from the wrong done by someone else. Your thoughts are energy for your mind and is what drives you to think. Your thoughts about life itself are the cornerstone for your beliefs. They drive how you feel and move you toward your goals. Thought is what makes life work for all of us. Without it what would you think. The end of thought means there is no more. Life, as we know it is over. The brain no longer works. It is dead.
The right thing done the wrong way will not succeed, just as the wrong thing cannot be done right. You can be right, though look as if you are wrong by those who are not right. It does not mean that you are wrong, and they are right, they are still wrong. You should let no one turn you away from what you know is right. If you do, then you will just as wrong as they are. And there is no one are thing that could do this without the help of your mind.
There is no “little white lie” no shades or degrees of right and wrong—no little bit of this or pinch of that. They are what they do, and they do a lot no matter who is doing what. You do not have to prove that you are right; just be right. To make a change to what is right will not make your right better. It will not be improved on. If it is right, it is not wrong. And you know when you are wrong, for wrong will not let you push it away. When you have done wrong, it is never far from your mind; it taunts you with its reminders.
You are the one to decide what is right or wrong for you. As we all must do, you have to live with what you decide. When we have done the right things, it does not mean all the right things are done. Trying to do the right thing is good. To do right is better. We must put forth the effort until all things that can be done right, are. When you do it right you will feel right. It is then that you will know how much better it is than when you do wrong. Right and wrong, good and bad all give back, what do you want to receive?
You cannot be caught doing the right thing. How can you do a thing wrong when you know how to do it right? The answer is in you. But here is a clue. When you truly know right from wrong you will no longer do wrong, until then you live the best that you can.
