Aren’t we all curious by nature to open things that are locked or closed? And isn’t it in our nature to desire hidden treasures with the possibility of a complete fulfilled fantasies? Well, if you have ever read the story of Pandora’s Box you’d know what happens when curiosity takes over our minds to the point of no return.
The Greek mythology takes place where Zeus gave Pandora a little box with a big heavy lock on it and he made her promise never to open the box. He in turn gave the key to Pandora’s husband and told him to never open the box.
Zeus was sure that Epimetheus’ (the brother’s) curiosity would get the better of him, and that either Epimetheus or his brother would open the box. However, Pandora was the one very curious. She wanted to see what was inside the box, but Epimetheus said no and forbid her, but one day, when Epimetheus lay sleeping, Pandora stole the key and opened the box. When she opened the box, out flew every kind of disease and sickness, hate and envy, and all the bad things that people had never experienced before. Pandora slammed the lid closed, but it was too late. All the bad things were already out of the box. They flew away, out into the world.
Epimetheus woke up at the sound of her sobbing. “I opened the box and all these ugly things flew out,” she cried. “I tried to catch them, but they all got out.” Pandora opened the box to show him how empty it was.
After the short preview of the very complicated story of “Pandora’s Box” this brings us to Jeffrey’s Story…
Jeffrey was a very spiritual man. He may not have made it to all the meetings he was supposed to, but nonetheless, he was a just man, full of wisdom and aware of what righteousness was. Jeffery was a married. Perhaps an unenthusiastic married man, very bored, but nonetheless, he loved his wife and never wanted to bring harm to her.
Jeffery began hanging out with old friends and time with them became way more interesting than going to church each Sunday and well, Jeffery’s friends had no interest what so ever in righteousness…they were only keen to what felt right at the moment. Jeffery’s mother came to him one day and said, “Jeff, you know God don’t like ugly and even though your wife can’t see what you’re doing, God can and I for sure can! You better get right before you do something you will regret, son.” Jeffery kissed his mom on the cheek and said, “Ma…I am doing just fine…I ain’t doing nothing I am not supposed to be doing.” His mom looked at him and smiled, but all the while she knew better. “Umm Humm!” she replied with a very concerned look.
Long story short, because of the boredom in his marriage, bad association, lack of spirituality and communicating his issues with his wife, Jeffery ended up cheating on his wife with several different women over a period of 3 years. His wife left him and so did all the loose women he whores with. Jeffery found himself alone, full of regret, sorrowfulness and sadness. Curiosity had taken over his life and it was far too late to undo the damage that he had created.
Sometimes warnings come way before destruction even comes close to happening, but we have to heed them and act on them immediately! The first emotion that comes after having satisfied lustful curiosities is regret and despair. In most cases that is; if you are dealing with a human conscience.
Unlike the story of Pandora’s Box, it does not have to be too late for you. Maybe this is just the warning before destruction that you need before you make a life changing decision to allow overzealous lust cause you to make an irreversible mistake in your relationship.
Believe me when I say that the pleasure is never worth the pain that infidelity causes. This may be you time to STOP, LOOK and LISTEN and now take HEED!!! The only way to properly clean Pandora’s Box is by communicating issues, working towards conclusions and alleviating secrets no matter what they are.
