Inner nature determines outer behavior

People are born with certain gunas or characteristics. These don’t change no matter how many books they read or lectures they attend. When we scrub a rat’s skin with water and soap, it will not change its color. No matter how expensive or well groomed a dog may be, it’s tail will always curl, and it seeks various smells even if placed on a throne.

I am no exception to this. I am not writing this for some personal benefit. I write so people may benefit. My nature is to write and spread this knowledge. Whether people use it to improve themselves or choose to ignore it, it won’t change my fundamental nature, which is to have trust in people and to help them in anyway I can.
Compared to a tortoise which lives 200 years, a dog may only live for about 15 years. But, in those 15 years, a dog is very useful to humans. It protects and guards the house, it is helpful to people with seizures. It can be trained to detect seizures hours before it manifests. It can also assist blind people in walking and keeping them safe. It also provides emotional companionship to people. A tortoise despite its long lifespan cannot help humans in this manner.
Horses and donkeys appear similar at birth. But they are very different once they grow. Horses have been used by kings to travel. A donkey is useful to carry loads but a horse can also do this task. Donkeys cannot go as fast as a horse. Intelligent people are like horses. They are very valuable. People who use their knowledge to harm others and fight with one another are like donkeys.
No one can come up in life without the support of another, whether directly or indirectly. We cannot underestimate or look down upon anyone. Everyone is useful to someone or the other. When we interact with others, we should think of them in positive terms. If we motivate and encourage them, they may go on to help someone else. When we receive any help from someone, we should never forget them for the rest of our lives. Nature gives us so much help in every moment. How can we ever forget Mother Nature. We not only forget but we also carelessly cause harm to Nature.
God has given everyone unique gifts. In our mind, we may seek the gifts of others forgetting what we have. Jealousy of this kind is very harmful to our spiritual growth. If we don’t recognize and use the gifts given to us, it is our fault and not the fault of God. People should be satisfied with what they have and should have mutual love, respect, and understanding with one another. By doing so, everyone will grow and prosper.
Blessings to all
