Human beings are the only creatures who are capable of completely deceiving themselves. Our mind can create a web of lies and so completely fool us that we will not know what is right and what is wrong.
Take for example the mindless bomb blasts in Mumbai today. What can one think of the perpetrators of such a cruel act. What must be going through the minds of these people.
Clearly these terrorists must harbor a lot of hatred for all mankind in general. How can they justify the loss of lives. I am certain that they must be justifying their deeds by thinking that to achieve their goal they have to sacrifice lives. They must be rationalizing their actis by arguing with themselves and completely fooling themselves of what is right or what is wrong,
What propels them to commit such acts? Do they think of lives lost, the people injured? Do they realize that they will be putting a lot of people in pain. Do they choose to ignore all of this and subjugate all human suffering to their cause whatever it might be.
Are the terrorists incapable of feeling or is their mind so warped that they cannot comprehend tenderness and love.
They must be utilizing their reason for all the wrong purposes.
When people do not pursue their lives by following true north principles of love, compassion, kindness are bound to be led astray by their mind.
The mind can become the vessel for dialbolical deeds accompanied by thoughts justifying and reasoning the devilish act.
The mind of these terrorists must be devoid of any possible human trait.
May they wake up to good sense and truth. May these people see the innocent smile a child. May they realize the joy of happiness gained by making others happy.
