Human being vs Being human

What is Human Being ?

Scientists call us Homo sapiens,a member of the Animal Kingdom,however we are fortunate and never addressed by a fellow human being as an animal.Human being is a complex matter, and nobody is able to figure it out.

May be a specialized animal,which can think,talk,express,and has bones and flesh.

Human being Vs being human

So what ? Other animals also can do these things,talk in their language,can communicate, have bones and flesh too .

May be we are the only animals that Laugh & Weep ! May be we are unique animal with ?? conscious . May be we have upright Stance etc.etc.

What is being Human ?

Being Human has a long definition One is easily tempted to define being human as one who is sensible to others pain,who is kind,compassionate,caring.helpful,devotional,merciful,not war mongering,,ethical, always on righteous path,generous,free from anger,jealousy,Oh! let me take a breath.You can further add etc.etc. All these good characters are supposed to be shown on the fellow Human beings.

So if a person has all the above qualities can we safely address this person as Being Human ?
I don’t think so and I feel that being human,no longer can be tagged with these qualities,but one should go beyond, I mean we should stretch the definition to the one who takes care of preserving Nature from being destroyed, and takes care of other living creatures( you name it…it’s there ) of God.

Desstruction of Nature

Being Being Human,also means to take care of the Nature,Nature in turn takes care of you

Some intelligent Human being even coined the term ‘Humane Killing’. It is said that by stunning the animal before killing is automatically Humane ( bad reputation for being Human ), since the animal suffers less in this method.Killing is killing and how can one justify ‘less suffering’. Suffering is suffering and nothing less or more in it.

Why can’t we Being Human,show the same kindness to animals what we supposed to show to other human beings ??

Humane Killing

How nice and kind if we behalve differently towards animals ?

Why I am passionate to Blog in this Avatar ?

Well,it is said everyday 3.2 billion images are shared on the internet.I started wondering how many images actually impact our routine ? What is the idea of taking so many photos leave alone sharing ? Just for the thrill ? So I felt like posting the photos that express some inner thoughts.

Photography is not just imagery. Photography is an art form that uses imagery to express ideas. This means that in order to create powerful photography, we must express powerful ideas. Don’t be afraid to express the way that you feel because the more interpretive an image is, the less likely it is to make an impact. ‘Will Moneymaker”

Peace of mind vs Piece of mind

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”       Dalai Lama            Image pixabay

What is peace of mind ?

Peace of mind is…. inner tranquility or inner peace,absence of turmoil,having sound sleep in the night.

What about piece of mind ?

piece of mind

To give someone ” a piece of your mind” often results in giving your “peace of mind” away    unknown       image source Boston University                                                                                                                                                

Piece of mind is … expression of somebody’s thoughts,rather some kind of advice or opinion.

Which category you belong?

Are you the one,willing to give peace of mind not just to yourself,but also to others? or

Are you the one,just love to give your piece of mind to each and every one,whether required  or not ?

In other words

Are you a big talker (giving your piece of mind ) or a  listener (comforting others)

As far as I am concerned ,I love to be a silent listener.

Curious question- Do blog articles/Social media etc  give us Peace of mind or Piece of mind ? Please share your thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by and taking your time to reach the end.

Thanks to Success Inspirers’ World , I am fortunate to Learn this unknown word  ( to me)

Definition of liminal  ( Merriam Webster )

1 : of, relating to, or situated at a sensory threshold : barely perceptible or capable of eliciting a response

  • liminal visual stimuli
2 : of, relating to, or being an intermediate state, phase, or condition : in-between,
Though many examples are available, I would like give PROCESS OF SLEEP as an example of Liminal state where awakness gradually taken over by sleep.
The process of gradual falling into sleep itself a wonderful feeling for all of us,where we can fantasize with our dreams requiring  no permissions

 

It is said that Creativity is at its best during this Liminal Dreaming.

“Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you”

Narcissism

Women admiring herself in the mirror

My simple question to the members.

1.Can you count how many times you use the word ‘I’ ‘Me’ ‘Myself’ every day ?

2. What is your take on ‘ Selfies’ ? ( I call it self destruction,in sense… many died while selfying )

3. Do you agree with me that the Narcissim is getting reflected in our social Media?

4. Finally do you agree with me,when I say that all of us have a very very very small negligeble percentage of Narcissism which is fortunately acceptable to the society? My sincere apologies.

I am not an expert sort of thing on Narscissism but Two things one must be aware of ..

1. Identifyingthe Narcissist.

If you are intelligent enough,it is not very difficult to realize that the other person you are dealing has a very low self esteem,fit to be a narcissist.

2. Avoiding the Narcissist.

Once you realize that the person has narcisstic trend, forever forget the person     irrespective of the intensity of the relationship you built,since you can’t change the narcissist.

Thank you for taking your time in going through this post.

‘Q’ sense -Animals vs Humans

It is said that people spend billions of hours waiting in line through out the world ,in order to get their things done.

What is Queue ?

According to Oxford Dictionary

1.British- A line or sequence of people or vehicles awaiting their turn to be attended      to or to proceed.

2.Computing
A list of data items, commands, etc., stored so as to be retrievable in a definite order, usually the order of insertion.

3.Archaic- A plait of hair worn at the back.

Why do we Queue ? ( Standing in the line )

Because it is polite to wait for your turn.Without Queue,there will be a total chaos,resulting in further increase in waiting time.

But still why some people jump the queue ? ( cutting the line )

 

May be they lack discipline or not keeping well or arrogant or they may miss appointment in someother place,may be carrying a sick child….. one can go on and on…and surely atleast 90% of the times these jumpers face wrath of others.

Rebel

The question isn’t who is going to let me; It’s is who is going to stop me ‘ Ayn Rand’

The very word rebel make one think of some kind of revolutionary ,dangerous and irresponbile person and even destructive.

I am not sure why one becomes rebel,and at what cost one becomes a sucessful rebel?

Is there any such thing called ‘Good Rebel’ or ‘Bad Rebel’ ?

Can a good rebel for some, can  be bad rebel for others ?I don’t have answeres for this.May be members can enlighten me.

Flaunt Philosophy

What is the idea behind Flunting  ? Image source Google

via Daily Prompt: Flaunt

Is flaunting good or bad ?

How flaunting is enacted by humans and other Gods creations ?

It is said that various creatures of God flaunt the beauty in their body to attract mates .That is perfectly OK.

But in humans ?

Whatever you flaunt…..it is a bit depressing to others,since human brain always carves for something better and others may feel inferior , leading  to jealousy  and totally destroying the inner peace.

Instead I feel one should be modest.

Remember flaunting attracts more enemies than friends.

Donkey Worship

untitled (1 of 1)

Donkey Worship

Usually the words ‘Donkey” “Ass” are used in a derogatory way ( Dumb ass,Jackass etc meaning people who are stupid or of very low intelligence ), even parading the donkeys during the times of Protests ( i don’t know about other countries but in India, it is a common occurrence). May be a kind of public humiliation.I do not know  why should Donkey be referred  as a stupid creature,when it is said to be an intelligent creature. I think it is the usual dominant human trait  to do injustice to the  donkey .

The other day I was surprised to come across a hung photo frame of two donkeys with Flower Garland,  at the entrance point in one of the shops.The flower indicates that Donkey is being worshiped ,daily.The local language in the photo mentions that ” Have a look at the Donkeys…. and Good fortune follows ” So I realized it is a good Omen to see Donkey face in the morning before one ventures into the routine tasks.So I was glad Donkeys are given due respect,they deserve.

As I googled I learnt a new term ONOLATRY which means Donkey worshiping,used in ancient times.

I learnt that ‘Sheetala Ashtami’ (March-April) celebrated in Rajasthan ( North Indian State) when woman folks worship the Donkey,for well being of children and people.Goddess Sheetala is said to be Goddess of Smallpox and Goddess Sheetala’s Photo frame along with a broom and water filled pot are  kept on the Donkey.Why the Donkey is chosen for this purpose…I am not sure.May be friends from Rajasthan can enrich us with better understanding
