FENCE

What is the purpose of a fence? To guard and protect. If there's a hole in the middle of the street, the municipality comes and erects a fence so that no one should get hurt by falling in. The fence keeps us safe from danger.
Similarly,when we find a "hole" in our life, we need a fence to avoid falling in, and hurting ourselves and others.
We need devices to help us avoid stumbling into errors.
We all make mistakes.
But few of us learn from them fall into them again and again.

  1. Very true surjit ji. That is the difference between the wise and the ordinary souls. The wise man remembers his mistake and never repeats it. But ordinary people like us forget that and keep doing the same mistake again and again. But by surrendering to God, He will slowly help us overcome our mistakes, even if the attachment is very strong!


    Thanks a lot for this inspiring and thoughtful write-up!

  5. I once read a quote somewhere: "We all are fools for at least five minutes a day, but the wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit." And if we are to stay within the limit we have to learn from our past mistakes so that we don't commit them ever again. When we find a "hole" in our life we must not give up or lament its existence, instead we should find ways to avoid it just as we might steer our car away from a pothole on the road.
