To Build Or Destroy That Is The Question
Take the first step to understand the creative powers (build and destroy) in you.
It takes time, energy, know-how and resources to build anything lasting.
However, it is very easy in most cases to destroy what people has built.
Generally, most people would prefer to build than destroy.
A common belief is that the goal to destroy is always evil, but that is not
true. If one cuts a tree, one has effectively destroy it. Is that evil if one intends
to use the wood to build a bridge? Similarly, is that evil, if one destroys an old
and ugly house because one aims to build a beautiful palace?
Furthermore, is that evil to kill a venomous serpent or scorpion in the children playground?
Will you agree that that the goal to destroy is not always evil?
When Does The Goal To Destroy Becomes Evil?
The goal to destroy
becomes evil if and only if the intention is evil. If one smashes
of another's car with the intention of stopping the
driver to use the car then one is destroying for
the sake of evil.
However, if a technician smashes one's windscreen to replace it with
quality windscreen, he or she does not do any evil.
Let's talk about those who enjoy destroying things for the sake of evil.
A group of yobs who put an obstacle on the railways to cause accident.
Those who killed others just because they do not behave or look like them.
People who set their neighbour's house on fire just because they hate them.
Others who destroy their competitors' work or business with a hoax.
Some who lie to the law enforcement officer just to get innocent people into trouble.
A person who betrays his loyal partner has effectively destroyed his trust.
Whatever, you intend to do make sure your intention is always good instead of evil.
To destroy or build it does not matter if it does not violate the golden rule.
