Pearl of Wisdom: Manipulation

You may manipulate a person to do anything you want and you may find pride in yourself for having gained that kind of control. Some people like using others or their love ones as puppets to satisfy some deep-seated emotional or physical need or their ego. The thing about a puppet is that you may make them do what you want, maybe as long as you want, but you will never have their heart or gain their wills. Manipulation gives you the illusion of getting what you want, while in fact, the more you practice it, the less you get. Ask those you are manipulating. A person’s heart and will, by natural design, is moved and motivated by a God-given gift of choice and Genuine Love, not by manipulation. So, if manipulation is what you use to get what you want, you better check to see if what you wanted is really what you actually have.
