How to be Human?
By Padmini Arhant
In the contemporary era, the concerted efforts among those exalted as noble despite their paradoxical traits and actions evidently futile.
These folks understanding basic concept behind nobility would dispel such delusion.
Nobility begins with being human shedding self-destructive qualities like greed, envy, prejudice, lies, deception, hubris and hatred that are common.
Those who engage in harming others with no regrets waste life. Instead the time and thoughts utilized in damage control and self-improvement would be worthwhile. The preliminary step towards reform requires introspection and acknowledgment of flaws and failures within that contributes to acrimonious involvement outside.
Being human is a tall order. Human being consumed with internal and external conflicts barely spare time towards inner development, self-cleansing and soul searching that would provide clues to real identity distinctive from false persona they maintain in pretentious circle.
The fundamentals of human nature premised on respect for others life and rights, empathy, appreciation, gratitude, sacrifice, truthfulness, integrity, kindness and courage fighting for just cause against fierce foes revealed in commitments translated into deeds in life are rare attracting rebuke and retribution.
On the contrary, easy access to fame, fortune and power upon joining bandwagon regardless of principle is the norm. The attributes varying from seeking and serving flattery to claiming anything that does not belong or apply to them are conspicuous in ceaseless quest for possessions and glory in life.
The definition of contentment is lost in the madness to acquire more than they can handle leaving them in the state of undying hunger making them the poorest of the poor contradictory to elitist status.
In society, education is evaluated by diplomas, degrees and doctorate titles competing against one another for highest paid posts and positions of prestige and honor that ignores invaluable education from life and individual ability to interpret lessons from life experience importantly practiced for greater good.
Unless the passion on self-interests at others expense or disadvantage desist, the achievements and accolades are meaningless and remain indebtedness to those deprived of legitimate rights and fairness.
In politics, the deep state deploying all possible means to evade accountability on crimes against humanity condition human mind to accept unacceptable environment seizing freedom on independent thought process.
For example, the deep state hiding behind Secret Society with members and representatives across the spectrum, the so-called democracies in particular enforce the idea on two possibilities to subjugate global population.
The first strategy is to spread propaganda on utopia under their rule.
Another tactic is inventing bogeyman as imminent threat to continue status quo.
The positive and negative euphemisms flashback setbacks repeatedly leading to deceit and disillusionment.
Human creation is to exemplify constructive, peaceful and honest endeavors for a promising future. It is easier to kill, decimate and annihilate life and matter but impossible to bring the dead to life. The power expended in protecting and saving life is honorable than otherwise.
There is nothing to gain and be proud of being responsible for inflicting pain and misery on millions through economic sanctions which is warfare and military interventions now transformed into sponsoring terrorism.
To summarize, striving to be human with genuine humane characteristics in the absence of ulterior motives and adulation would dignify character without being bought, sold and negotiated unlike prevalent setting usurped to make believe repute such as in fool’s paradise.
In overcoming challenges to be human, the innate potentials aid in human evolution. The deficiency or lack of human spirit makes any designations symbolic than significant.
