I received following message on WhatsApp and it got me thinking:
Today is an Annual Account Closing Date ….Lets clear all our Misunderstandings, Hurt, Anger, Resentment, Guilt, Fears, Rejections, Failures, Envy, Misbehavior, Mistakes and all Negative FeelingsClose these Accounts.Wish you all a very Happy, Healthy n Wealthy New Financial Year 2016-2017…
Since I have learnt Duality Principle in Accounting, I looked at the above message by applying Double Entry Accounting system.
You cannot have only Assets (Happiness, Health and Wealth). Those must be balanced by Liability + Equity side.
The Liability side would consist of all the negative feelings mentioned in the message viz. Mis-understandings, Hurt, Anger, Resentment, Guilt, Fears, Rejections, Failures, Envy, Misbehavior, Mistakes.
If Assets equal Liabilities then life would not be exciting. You would be happy on few days and sad/depressed on remaining days.
So what would make this equation favorable on Asset side? Well, that would be the Equity component.
And what would this Equity consist of?
It would (or should) consist of all the good qualities you, the person, possess. i.e. Character, Sincerity, Perseverance, Gratitude, Honesty, Loyalty, Integrity, Hope, Positivism, Optimism, Rationalism etc.
All these qualities would make the Liabilities side smaller and help balance the Asset side!
