Everybody belongs to a social unit. This may range from a family to a village, and from religious group to work institutions. In this regard there is always a two-way impact between one person and another. It follows therefore that in any case, one is affected just as one’s own life affects others. It may be in a good way or a bad way. Suffice to say that there are always variations in terms of traits that make one essentially different from other.
Certainly people have aspirations and desires. But not all aspirations or desires are practically good. This is why in any social unit as aforementioned we would find out that at some point in time a sort of conflict of interest arises in the midst of members leading to disagreements. Under a very serious situation a quarrel erupts. Thank goodness there is always time for a reconciliation so much that harmony and tolerance get restored thereby letting life to return to normalcy.
However, let us briefly depart from this, and look at social life in a little different way. When everything seems to be okay, nobody thinks there might be a Judas Iscariot within a group. Not until when an expected tragedy befalls them. Take, for instance, a situation whereby criminals trespass on a bank premises at night. They break into the building, and steal therein huge amount of money from the vaults which apparently are secured by strong combinations and alarm system. In the morning almost everybody wears a gloomy face, unable to construe how possibly unknown criminals could have accessed an entry into a highly secured building.
A report is made to investigation agents for help. And a preliminary examination of facts reveals that an internal element as the mastermind of the breaking. In this regard, a person who serves as the bank’s electronic security expert and the operations manager had the previous day wilfully disabled such an infallible security system with intent to aid in theft of the money. But, during questioning the trained expert fails to explain as to what happened for the locking system to have collapsed. He can’t even explain why he did not take any precaution to avert any probable danger if not to fully restore the system before knocking off… Worse than that he didn’t report the purpoted fault to the bank manager.
Another scenario is a marriage whose couple do not genuinely love each other. Look around and you will see that others get into a marriage with an aim to milk a spouse of his or her wealth. Otherwise, a man or woman resorts to terminating a partner’s life so that he or she will inherit deceased property as widower or widow. And this happens in a highly organized and premeditated manner so as to avoid suspicions… Again, the so-called bosom friends of yours can attack you when you expect them to be on your side… Truth be told, no matter how close a married couple may be or friends may be, one’s mental territory lies at a distance too far for either to reach. Let me contextually call this a mental territorial barrier.
In every sense of words, without such a mental territorial barrier, there wouldn’t be fraudulent accounting, or any corrupt practice in the public offices. Likewise, there wouldn’t be an unfaithfulness like adultery, and you name it, in marriages. Otherwise, in the first place almost all of us get together on basis of trust, only to be betrayed later on. Oh yes..! However, one fact remains indisputable: that God’s eye clearly sees everything, even in the pitch darkness. To this effect, all secrets are bound to come to limelight sooner or later.
Surely, we fear intruders who may at some point want to attack us. But hey, as we have reasoned together, sometimes an enemy might be right within our own team. Frankly speaking, such one enemy is more dangerous than the whole gang of attackers… It is, therefore, important that we be very cautious when choosing who to associate with, or who to work with, or who to marry. This way, we shall avoid becoming victims of breach of trust.
