Keeping away from wrong-doing

Keeping away from wrong-doing

The urge to indulge into bad thoughts and evils acts is such a fiery spark that can set on fire or consume anything that may come near to it. Anyone who is bent on playing with blazing fire definitely risks getting burnt. Any individual whose mind is occupied in cheating, deception, arrogance, hatred, dishonesty, anger, animosity, etc. would ultimately reduce themselves to the ranks of hooligans even if he/she were a learned individual.

 Only they can think virtuously whose life is well-organised and well under control and, who is earnestly trying to cultivate only good qualities in their life. Right way of thinking basically flourishes along with good virtues such as being a firm believer in truth, love and affection, generosity, simplicity, kindness, helping nature, self-reliance, welcoming nature, etc.
Both good thinking and good virtues essentially flourish from the same soil and are nurtured by the same nutrients. Do remember that good thinking cannot survive for very long and would soon wither away when it gets deprived of good virtues. Therefore, those who wish to be clever or bright must develop and have good virtues as well.
