Why do we doubt honesty? Why are we tending to be skeptics?

Its a strange world out there. Really strange! It sure has changed from what it was a decade ago. Fortunately a few things have remain intact.

As a student of Human Psychology, I know one thing, every human being is pure at his/her core - we are all alike - truly divine. We are all good. There's nothing bad in us. Really.

However, we were brought up with a mindset like Triumph of Goodwill over Evil, and to some extent it helped us, but then it established the ideas of Evil, Dark, Fear, Lies, Dishonesty etc. And that is where it went wrong.

Many people today think of the world as an Evil place. They have forgotten that God himself has re-incarnated in this very Earth - mother Earth. How can this be evil?

Its just in our minds, there's nothing evil about the earth or any of its creatures. People today are afraid of fellow humans. They are unable to trust others. Even if a person is speaking the truth, people can not really believe it. If you are honest with your work and you are doing your duty, people began to doubt your intentions. This is something that needs to be changed.

So here are the questions - Why do we doubt honesty? Why are we tending to be skeptics?

And here's the answer - because we doubt ourselves. We doubt our own intentions and motives. We doubt our potential. Yes, that's the reason. That's the mistake, and that needs to change.

People today really need a new perspective. Life is beautiful. People are beautiful, after all, as Islam, Christianity, Hinduism and all other religions will tell you - We were created in the image of God, so beautiful, so unique, so divine, just like God himself.

It reminds me of the Robert Browning's poem that I studied probably in my 4th Standard [the human mind is incredible isn't it?] and its no miracle that I remember it, I left an ever lasting impression on me-

    The year's at the spring 
    And day's at the morn; 
    Morning's at seven; 
    The hillside's dew-pearled; 
    The lark's on the wing; 
    The snail's on the thorn: 
    God's in His heaven— 
    All's right with the world!
