No doubt, our lives are much impacted by our thoughts and actions. We also influence others, including our children, through our thoughts, actions and words. This implies that we are the ones who can easily pass on our weaknesses, our hatred, our timidity and our mental violence to the future generations. The thought that we are just insignificant living components in the affairs of today’s world is dangerously simplistic and defeatist, because we, individually and collectively, unknowingly, are destined to be powerful craftsmen of the destiny of future generations.
We may be too small in our own eyes or in the eyes of the world we live in, but we matter for our surroundings and for the future generations. How do we ensure, then, that we do not cause any harm to others who live with us or who are going to live after us? Or, do we consider that this issue is not at all worth pondering over?
Just as there is no proof of the existence of the God; there is also no proof that the God, if He exists, takes ample care of all, notwithstanding the apathy of the mankind towards humanity, because there had never been a period in the history when human concerns were found to be totally absent.
The modern man believes that he is capable of doing anything and everything; his surrender to the omnipotence of the God, in all likelihood, is a farce. However, the modern man also thinks that he has the ability to know and understand anything and everything; maybe, to comprehend omniscience of the God would suit him better.
