Let’s Be Human Beings, Not Human Doings (Part 3)
A life full of inner happiness and contentment is only possible when everything you do is based on your real spiritual self. Suppose you have an important exam in your school and you are preparing for it with complete honesty and sincerity. Giving the exam is an important challenge for you but inspite of all your hard work you do not fare well in the exam. In such a case, we might feel unhappy but have we ever wondered that an external situation like this may be positive or negative. But do we allow our mind’s thoughts, feelings and emotions to be governed by them or to be controlled by them. Also, do remember that your life’s purpose is not only to earn wealth, play roles of different types, look after your family and children and excel in exams and get good degrees. No person in this world has everything going his way at all times in these different spheres of life. So a sole purpose based on things that may or may not go our way can be tiring and full of broken happiness, which goes and comes from time to time.
When we have a higher purpose of redefining our thinking and modifying our feelings into better ones, our little world around us – our family and then the little bigger world around us – our workplace and then the even bigger world – our society followed by our country and then the complete world will begin to change. If we had the complete human race acquiring a higher purpose before short term purposes of eating and feeding, earning and spending, producing and gaining, then all these things outside us would be full of more accuracy and beauty. So, take a step forward today and start living like special human beings who love the being before the doing. This will create little worlds of happiness full of peace and love around you … the little heavens, which will create a beautiful paradise in the whole world.
