Three significant immensely necessary skilful values that I want to impart to my kids or the next generation to sustain in this world.
There are quite a few triads, like
- Live and let live – again grandma knows best.
- Pause, take a deep breath and delegate – shared by my brother.
- stop, rest, listen
Lets get serious, to give something, I should own and I would need to think… It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.” Like― Roy Disney said, but what are my values, Dorothy Parkar has run an inventory for us. But is it valuable enough to be bequeathed?
“Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.
Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.
Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.
Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.”
― Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker
I do not know I would hand down values, like handing down maps, values are not buses, they are not supposed to get you anywhere, they just define who we are, and if we are really honest, sooner or later we have to confront our values. Then we are forced to segregate what is right from what is merely legal. This puts us metaphysically on the run. We seem to slowly creating lot of metaphysical outlaws.
Chaitali, conforms to the challenge of three in every hero’s cycle.. Incidentally a hero’s cycle is the journey of a hero confronting his values. A candle a book and a peaceful person the three candles for the world, look at the numerical three. Mathematics expresses values that reflect the cosmos, including orderliness, balance, harmony, logic and abstract beauty.
Think of three, three wishes, three boons, three Biblical kings, three witches of Macbeth, three pigs of the fairy tales the list is endless. Three a fascinating number, the first odd prime number
If you look at theology you come across the father-son-holy spirit of Christianity, and vayu-varuna-agni of the Vedic trilogy, the brahma-vishnu-maheshwara of later Hinduism,
This could be because the somewhere three is the first number to give us a sense of collection. My mother called it the rule of three, be it math, or be it writing
In math it would be if xàY then zà? So we would have to go, (zxy)/x. This is so imbibed that it has become default thinking.
- It is more interesting when it comes to literature think of the catch words “hop-skip-jump,” ” Eat, pray and love.
I could go on, but three is not the hurdle is the passing of values is the prompt is about. To be honest what I would share is .. “Three simple rules in life: If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.” Through a Ethical will https://parwatisingari.wordpress.com/2016/05/20/ethical-will-passing-on-values/
