Ukholelwa OKUTHILE

A beautiful location of belief in Leh.

Wonke umuntu ukholelwa okuthile.

Uyabazi abangakholelwa kuNkulunkulu? Bangase bangakholelwa kuNkulunkulu, kodwa BAYAkholelwa kwezinye izinto. Ngaphandle kwalapho beyizikhala eziphelele, bakholelwa ukuthi ezinye izinto “zinhle” kanti ezinye “zimbi”. Zingase zibe nomusa, zikhiqize, zidale, futhi zibe nesandla esivulekile -- zikwazisa ngokucacile lokho kuziphatha. Ngisho noma bezicabangela bona, cishe bakholelwa ukuthi "kuhle" kubo ukuthi bangalambi kakhulu noma bagodole kakhulu noma banesithukuthezi noma bahlupheke kakhulu. Mhlawumbe bakholelwa, futhi, ukuthi "kuhle" uma abanye abantu bengalambile kakhulu, noma. Mhlawumbe bacabanga ukuthi impi "yimbi". Noma ukuthi "kubi" ukweba izinto. Noma zonke izinhlobo zezinto.

Kodwa imiqondo ethi "okuhle" nelithi "okubi" ingaba uhlobo oluthile. Ubani othi kuhle? Umuntu oyedwa? Kufanele ilungele bani? Lowo muntu? Abangane babo? Wonke umphakathi?

Ungazama ukwenza impikiswano ngokuthi, "abantu banelungelo lezinkolelo zabo," kodwa lokho akubambeki kahle kakhulu. Kuthiwani uma lo muntu ekholelwa ukuthi kulungile ukubhidliza indlu yakho? Noma ubulale umndeni wakho? Noma ukweba imoto yakho?

Ngakho-ke, njengoba usakaza mayelana nemithetho engcono, ungase ucabange, "Hhayi-ke, masibe nentando yeningi. Masibe nomthetho weningi - iningi linganquma ukuthi yikuphi okuhle nokubi." Kodwa lokho akudlali kahle, nakho. Kuthiwani uma iningi livotela uHitler emandleni? Ingabe lokho kwenza izinqumo zakhe zibe zinhle? Uh... cha.

Ngakho-ke, ungase ucabange, "Kulungile-ke, kuthiwani ngolunye uhlobo lomthetho, olufana noluhle kunani elikhulu kunawo wonke?" Indlela ethile yokubala injabulo iyonke? Encwadini ethi ‘The Moral Philosopher and the Moral Life’, uWilliam James ubeka (futhi wenqaba!) isimo esingaba khona:

"... izigidi zigcinwe zijabule unomphela esimweni esisodwa esilula sokuthi umphefumulo othile olahlekile onqenqemeni olukude lwezinto kufanele uphile impilo yokuhlushwa isizungu, yini ngaphandle komzwelo ongabazayo nozimele ongasenza? ngokushesha ukuzwa, nakuba kwavuka umfutho ngaphakathi kithi wokubamba injabulo esinikezwa yona, into enyanyekayo ingaba kanjani injabulo yayo lapho yamukelwe ngamabomu njengesithelo salokho kuthengiselana?”

UFyodor Dostoevsky, kwethi The Brothers Karamazov, wethula inselele efanayo. U-Ivan Karamazov ukhuluma nomfowabo omncane, u-Alyosha:

'"Zicabange udala indwangu yokudalelwa komuntu ngenjongo yokwenza abantu bajabule ekugcineni, ubanike ukuthula nokuphumula ekugcineni, kodwa ukuthi kwakubalulekile futhi kungenakugwemeka ukuhlukumeza kuze kufe isidalwa esisodwa esincane -- leyo ngane. ukushaya isifuba salo ngesibhakela saso, isibonelo -- futhi uthole leso sakhiwo ezinyembezini zaso ezingaphindiselwe, ungavuma yini ukuba umakhi kulezo zimo? Ngitshele, futhi ukhulume iqiniso."

"Cha, bengingeke ngivume," kusho u-Alyosha ngomoya ophansi.'

U-Alyosha wayeqinisile. Ukwakheka "okuhle kakhulu" akuhlali kahle. Khona-ke, abangakholelwa kuNkulunkulu bayinquma kanjani indlela yokuziphatha? Yini abacabanga ukuthi “ilungile” noma “ayilungile”? Noma "okungcono" noma "okubi"? Bangawasebenzisa kanjani lawo magama nhlobo? Basikisela izinga eliphezulu, elijulile -- uhlobo oluthile lwenhloso enkulu.

Ngokushesha nje lapho usuka ekucabangeni ukuthi ukuziphatha kungase kube okungahleliwe, okungabalulekile, futhi noma yini ehambayo, unohlelo lokukholelwa. Unamanani athile -- amanye amazinga. Bangase babe mnyama ngempela, bangashintshile, bangabi nasisekelo, abanobugovu... kodwa bayizinkolelo nezindinganiso, futhi wakha ukuphila kwakho kubo.

Manje? Hhayi-ke, uma uthatha ingxabano yokuthi UNEnkolelo kwezinye izindinganiso zokuziphatha, futhi UNINAWO amanani athile, khona-ke kungenzeka ukuthi kubaluleke kakhulu ukuwakhetha ngokucophelela. Ecaleni lakhe ngo-399 B.C., uSocrates wathi “Impilo engahloliwe ayikufanele ukuphila”.

Futhi, wathini uJesu? “Kodwa funani kuqala umbuso kaNkulunkulu nokulunga kwakhe, khona konke lokhu kuyakwenezelwa nina. (Mathewu 6:33)

EBhayibhelini, sinombhalo izigidigidi zabantu eziye zawubona ungcwele, izinkulungwane zeminyaka. Lokho kukodwa akukwenzi kulunge; izigidigidi zabantu zingaba nephutha. Kodwa kuyakwenza, mhlawumbe, kukuncome ekunakeni kwakho! UJesu washo lokhu futhi: “Funani, niyothola. (Mathewu 7:7)
