Can you force a plant to blossom with beautiful flowers?
Can you force the caterpillar to be a beautiful butterfly with immediate effect?
Can actually “force” the water to flow from down stream to up-stream?
Can you force the fruits to be ripen?
Can you force leaves to be fall from the trees?
Do you think you can apply “force” to nature?
You might, yet the result will not be great. We need to bear for consequences.
There is a natural cycle in anything, respect and let it run by its pace.
Recently, one of my friend shared that her friend being forced to believe in cult. Her friend was sick and her cousin’s brother in name of “for her benefit or for her own good “, they forced her and her mum to follow the teaching of cult. They brought more than 10 people to her house and refused to leave if they were not follow the cult. By no choice, they agreed to be the follower in order to get rid of the whole gang from her house. Of course, in reality they are not follower as this is not their willingness.
What is the purpose of forcing people to believe something? By forcing, the result will not be lasting as people don’t understand and this is not their willingness.
A lot of times, we might do something to others in the name of ” for your own good/ for your benefit”, we thought we are actually helping others, in reality, we might not help others but bring suffering.
You, yourself must have a great understanding for you believe after analyzing before you start to “force” others to believe. Whatever good for you, might not be suitable to others. Don’t act like a “sheep”, keep contemplating.
Let’s others be inspired by your transformation and they are willingly to find out more on what you are actually practicing instead of using by “force”.
