Treasure of Humanity
Every human is a treasure of qualities both good and bad. The difference is that man has hidden his qualities and carries the quality in his hand. He does not hold back from saying that I am great, I am trustworthy, but he will never say that he is dishonest. When he sees his qualities, he does not get deep enough but when he want to look at qualities of others, he looks deeply.
In today's life, if man does not learn to behave well with man, then in future he will be opposed to each other. That is why humanity is being strangled on every side. Humanity is crying everywhere. There is no corner of the world where there is no politics in the name of any religion. How many millions of people are becoming homeless and many innocent children are being orphaned everywhere.
Today's education, devoid of righteousness, is taking man towards the inhumanity and insensitivity towards other human beings. We believe in God but we don't follow his words. If we start believing and following God in our life, then life becomes well. He told us that we should renounce attachment, once the abandonment of attachment happens, life will become great. Human beings should win anything not with anger, but with forgiveness. The person who wears forgiveness becomes great. We should live lie with love, passion, compassion and emotion for others.
Humanity can be defined as quality of being human; the peculiar nature of man, by which he is distinguished from other beings. Being human does not mean that an individual possesses humanity.
If you want to understand the quality of humanity in an individual take note of what he does for people who give noting back in return to the favour they have offered.
One of the most outstanding examples of extra- ordinary humanity in a human being has been portrayed beautifully by Mother Teresa. Humanity means caring for and helping others whenever and wherever possible. Humanity means helping others at times when they need that help the most, humanity means forgetting your selfish interests at times when others need your help.
Humanity means extending unconditional love to each and every living being on Earth. It is important to understand one important fact, an individual’s life is successful not by the number of degrees he or she attains but by the degree of humanitarian activities that individual is into on a day to day basis.
Serving the poor and the disabled is one of the greatest humanitarian help an individual can provide in his or her lifetime. It is essential to understand the fact that we are extremely lucky to have everything we desire at any point of the time we need. Serving the needy means that you yourself think that you have more than enough resources to your disposal.
People who always crib that they do not have sufficient facilities available despite having everything can never provide humanitarian services because if one has the mind set of not being self- sufficient, how can he or she help someone else. One is always remembered for his or her good deeds and it is essential to understand that there is no better deed than providing services for humanitarian causes.
If eating and having fun is only what we are born to do then we should keep one thing in mind; even animals can do such activity; if God has made us humans there has to be some reason behind it.
Only human beings can understand the importance of humanity and it is humanity as a result of intelligence which actually gives the core essence to human existence. You will not need a hefty bank account to contribute towards humanitarian activities. Paying your domestic help fairly is also humanity. You are willing to pay thousands of bucks for your medical check- up but when it comes to paying your employee; you want to save every penny.
Humanitarian activities should never be performed in order to achieve fame or to gain a status symbol. You can easily achieve fame by the work you do. Lifting the heavy bag of an old woman is humanity, helping a disabled to cross the road is humanity, helping your mom in doing work is humanity; in fact helping anyone who is in need is humanity. As soon as we understand the importance of humanity in day to day life, the purpose for which we are on Earth is automatically fulfilled.
“The more humanity advances, the more it is degraded.” ― Gustave Flaubert
We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness – not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, and has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost…. Soldiers! Don’t give yourselves to brutes , men who despise you enslave you who regiment your lives tell you what to do what to think and what to feel! Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! You, the people have the power – the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Humanity today is falling back. Whatever steps we take forward, they take us back as human beings.
It has given us the sense of absolute power and knowledge that makes a person feel like God. No, we are not gods and we cannot decide on the fate of others. They only have that right. But we can and we must change ourselves by taking knowledgeable decisions, making the right choices in life and not letting others decide for us.
