LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR

 “LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR”

life coaching pretoria south africa

We are not animals, and yet for centuries people have turned barbaric, destroying one another with the sword and the pen. It is no fault of the children born in these countries ridden with hate and bloodshed and yet they are punished, what horrible brutes we have become, or can we redeem ourselves?

In the midst of all the calamity in the world, the Xenophobic attacks in South Africa, and the Earthquake in Nepal, we have also witnessed man’s greatest virtue, his goodwill towards his fellow man.

Neighbors love each other

It is heart wrenching to see thousands of bodies crushed beneath buildings, children orphaned and thousands more left homeless, and yet my faith in humanity has been restored. Despite all the negativity in the world, today we see thousands set into action without thinking of the difference in race or religion. Not logistical challenges nor threats of losing their own lives can stop them, this is what “love thy neighbor as thy self” means.

In every religious book we are encouraged to work for the good of humanity, and man has eventually acceded to the call of our prophets and Gods. Herein lies the proof: Swami Vivekananda: “Work on with the intrepidity of a lion but at the same time with the tenderness of a flower.”

It warms my heart to see man’s instinct to kill turn into love and compassion. Natural disasters have awakened in man a natural desire to care, uplift and nurture the injured and fallen. This is how we were meant to live, in harmony, peace and unity.

EASTER

Easter, although it comes around once a year

I am a practising Hindu, and after having practised the Catholic faith for approximately 9 years, I understand and appreciate the Passion of Christ. Easter, although it comes around once a year, should be a reminder to all Christians to acknowledge and appreciate the sacrifices and suffering that Jesus Christ went through for his children. The reason for his crucifixion was so that all Christians should be absolved of their sins.

Easter Speaker Pretoria
Religious SpeakerSuyan Budhoo at Pretoria

“Forgive me father for I have sinned” should not be taken lightly, and although a kind and loving father forgives his children, we should not act like insolent teenagers taking advantage of the kind nature of God. Anybody that has observed Lent, Good Friday and Palm Sunday should do so with a heart filled with compassion. With a heavy heart as you relive and repeat the steps taken by Jesus Christ you should feel what He felt, crown of thorns, wooden cross upon his shoulders, bare footed across many miles and then nailed upon the very same cross for the salvation of you, his children. Many of us would not even make such sacrifices for our own parents or children, and yet He made it for you. Be grateful for his graces and appreciate what was done for you.

Behave like the ideal child and make your father proud of you. Love all, be kind to all, hurt none with your words or the sword for this is what Jesus Christ died for. Sin no more against friend or foe. Remember all the “Our Father’s” or “Hail Mary’s” that you’ve repeated over the years and make a decision this Easter to sin no more.

Amen

BE FEARLESS

Business Coach - Suyan Budhoo

In years gone by adults used fear to get children to pray or attend church and yet they spoke of a loving and merciful God.  What then do we expect our children to believe? How can God punish us and still be loving.

The youth of today however do not believe in such superstitious religion and why should they, when we have also encouraged them to think for themselves and enquire into the meaning of science, technology, philosophy and poetry.  Why not enquire about God?  We should not be afraid of opening up our minds to questions like Who is God? What is religion? Why am I here? and Who am I? for the fear of stumbling upon the truth.

Executive Coach South Africa

Who am I? this is a question that some religions do not encourage for the fear of opening up a can of worms.  What if a child learns that he is gay, or if he wants to become an artist instead of a Doctor, or wants to explore another religion.  These are the type of fears parents have and sometimes instead of allowing our children to explore who they are we burden them with unfair expectations.

Fear in most cases are unwarranted, we worry about some future event that in any case may never occur.  If you have faith in your parenting skills and in the way you bring your children up then there is no need to fear.  Your children should therefore be encouraged to explore who or she is.  We as parents cannot teach our children, the child teaches himself.  Our duty is to afford opportunities and remove obstacles for his growth.

Life Coach Suyan Budhoo

Fear of some future event can cause unnecessary stress and may become your death in a form of some disease.  Being held captive by fear can be hell, playing games with your mind, this is unrighteousness, this is not the way God intended us to live our lives.  Living in fear is like being in prison, it is more important to have a free mind than it is to have a free body.  What good is it to live in this world, if we are always afraid to enjoy the benefits of this freedom.

“All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in this world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear.  Therefore I say Be Fearless, be fearless”  Swami Vivekananda

LOOKING FOR MEANING

Our interpretation of events are based solely upon our personal perspective and opinion. We are sometimes biased about certain events due to the incorrect perspective we have taken in interpreting such a situation.

As the only life force that can think and reason shouldn’t we be using this “power” in a more effective way? I truly believe that nothing happens in our life by pure co-incidence or luck. Everything, from the birth of a baby to going through a divorce happens by design. If, instead of mourning certain events, we look for the meaning behind it, we are sure to come out of any situation stronger.

Suyan Budhoo - Spiritual Speaker South Africa

There will be situations in your life that may seem beyond your control, like losing a job for example, but many who have gone through this will tell you in retrospect it was the best thing that could have happened to them, and there will still be others who tell you it was the worst thing that happened in their lives. What sets these two groups of people apart despite facing similar situations?

Career Coach - Suyan Budhoo

It is their perspective or interpretation of the situation that either strengthens you or destroys you. Perspective around a situation normally comes from our past experiences, upbringing or social situation but mostly from whether you have a positive or negative mind-set. Past experiences, upbringing and social situations are all external factors that should have very little baring on how we choose to think and live our lives. I am not denying the fact that society matters or that your past is important. All I am saying is that you should not let those external factors determine where you are going.

Once you realise that there is meaning behind everything, you will start looking for the positive in every situation. Initially it is difficult, especially if you are or was a pessimist, but once you realise that it does not help your current situation to mope around or stress about the events in your life, it will become easier to look for the meaning behind everything.

Business Coach Johannesburg

A negative mind does not bear positive fruit, this is what you need to realise when working through a difficult situation. Once you manage to clear your mind of all negativity then only will you awaken to the maxim that anything is possible.
