Conquer through Love and Compassion

The measure of a man is what he does with power – Plato

Hello friends, today we will talk about how the world could be conquered. In recent times, it’s more than apparent that some power centers in the world are hell bent to forcibly, violently and sometimes stealthily to capture the land of others, for whom the freedom is as dear as for anyone. Have they succeeded in their endeavors? Certainly not.

It’s the genuine love, compassion and devotion and selfless sacrifice, the world can come to one’s feet. Lord Jesus, a commoner, born to a poor shepherd couple, Joseph and Mary, commanded no material power or authority. Yet, he came to be exaltedas the apostle ofGod. He showed the world the path of love and compassion to follow to reache God. Jesus engaged himself in healing the people in disress and spreading the message of love and devotion through his parables. Soon he had a large number of followers.

Though he was crucified to nullify his power but it failed to deterr from making him the central figure of Christianity.Today not only the Christians, Lord Jesus is revered by the people of all religion. He won the the hearts of people through love and compassion.

Similarly, Emperor Ashoka of Mauryan Dynasty in ancient India who famously renounced the path of war and embraced the path of love, humanity and welfare of poeple of his kingdom. For whom H G Wells once said that amid tens of thousands of the names of monarchs, ‘Ashoka’s name shines almost alone like a star’. The massive death and devastation of the famous war of Kalinga, made him realise the futility of violence. The lands might be won not the hearts. Ashoka is still remembered not for his conquest but spreading the message of non violence and love .

Friends, there is a proverb, if one dig a hole for others to fall, one day the person would inevitably find himself or herself in the same pit. Just like a boomerang, your karma will catch up with you no matter how far you run.The blind lust for power and authority is not uncommon in history and its consequences were there for all to see. Be it Alexander the Great, Napoleon or the much reviled Hitler, all wanted supremacy to conquer the world with their ruthless power. Ater inflicting so much blood shed on mankind entire herculean efforts eventually came to naught.

If somebody has power and money, the person must not strive to gather more of it any which way, rather use it to make the life of oneself, family and people around better and comfortable. The muscle or monetary wealth never going to win hearts for one but good deeds, generosity and kindness would.

Money and power are transient but the benevolence and compassion shown to fellow living beings would stay in people’s heart, forever.

We are standing at the threshold of the year. It’s time for reflections and retrospection and also for making plans and the resolutions for the year ahead.

Let’s try to make extra effort to keep ourselves happy and many others too. Discard the atmosphere of hatred and and the feeling of indifference and apathy towards fellow human being. Let’s hold the hands of weak and infirm and sincerely spread the message of love and empathy all around.

Let’s try to make our society and the world a better place to live in.

Happy season’s greetings to you all.
Adieu for now.

  1. There needs to be a world opinion against China, which is responsible of spreading the virus, and now is discriminating people of other nationalities citing the same virus. It shouldn’t go scot free for deaths and sufferings all across the globe.

  2. Wonderful write up Mousumi. Yes I agree, the whole world is apprehensive of the successive waves of variants emerging.
    We have learnt the lesson that greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.
    In future,love, compassion and empathy should be our slogan and practice to combat animosity among human beings.

  3. Hi Mousumi,

    Your words strike like, thunder bringing a thunderstorm, across the world . And your source of energy is the inner core, your heart.

    Challenges to humanity can be seen in our daily lives. And I would prefer to show light to myself, become people’s support, and save more lives.

    Being vocal is important. Digital technology and Social Media are the tools of solving problems, increasing communication.

    Spread of positive, scientific and educational information should be encouraged. Many people are doing wonderful jobs.
