Justifications

You can justify a lot of things, but justifications only make things seem right; they don't make them right.

I picked this from one of the episodes of Seventh Heaven. It seemed very true to me. However, a question comes up in my mind: do we need to justify even when we are right? I don't have an answer to it right now. Maybe some day.

Whatever even decides what is right or not? It bothers me quite a bit.

Yes that's true, it's hard to decide what's right and what's not. Even Krishna himself told Arjuna that for an ordinary man it's very difficult to decide what's right. One golden rule that he gives is if it's your duty, it's right. I think directly or indirectly it helps us determine right from wrong most of the times. Sometimes we don't have the courage to accept the right; sometimes we don't think it through to see the right.
