Let’s Be Human Beings, Not Human Doings (Part 1)
We are all special angels in this world born for a higher purpose. Have you ever wondered that apart from living a life from morning to night, full of actions like dressing up in the morning, going to work, cooking meals and going off to sleep at the end of the day, we also have a higher purpose in this lifetime? Take for e.g. a machine in your home like an air conditioner. It runs when we put it on and shuts down when we instruct it to. When it is not running, it remains idle without ever thinking that it could do something else. Does it have a higher purpose? No. Then one day comes when we discard it forever and it is abandoned. We all are human beings first and not human doings only. Human doings work from morning to night, performing different actions, without a higher purpose. Human beings have a higher purpose – to look after the being while performing actions necessary to life. So, let us not be like a machine from today. When we step into our workplace or when we look after our home and family and interact with our friends, let us think and be aware that one day we will leave this body and take with us nothing. No financial success, professional achievement, beautiful relationship and looks and outer personality will go with you, when you are no longer in this physical costume or body.
So, pause for a minute this moment and look inwards. I love my son or daughter or husband or wife but one day they will no longer be with me, when I leave this physical costume. For me, the purpose of my life may be looking after them. But my higher purpose is looking after my inner self, my sanskaras, my inner being, which I will carry with me. So take an affirmation every morning – I choose to beautify my inner self in the complete day and give happiness to everyone I meet. I choose to be good at work but also work on my actions, which make me receive blessings from everyone. Also, I choose to be a mirror of goodness for everyone, in which people will see positivity and be inspired to become better human beings. Why? Because you are special, a special human being and not an ordinary human doing!
