Our role as society
Our role as Society| What's our role as society| Are we playing our role as society|
I fail to understand one thing, on what ground we are so interested in knowing about other's life. Have we provided them the natural resources air, water, land, oxygen to live - No., Or have we invested in their education or their upbringing - No. Then why are we so interested in knowing what they are doing in their respective lives. I will tell you why, because we want our self to compare with others and those who compare are often the ones who are unsatisfied in their lives. We want to know if someone's child is doing better than our child or not. We want to compare, judge, form opinions. But why? Has God ever knocked on your door and said I had given you everything to survive on this planet - oxygen, air, water, food, your brain. But what have you done with them polluted the air, contaminated the water, destroyed the food, wasted the power of your brain in gossip, tv, and social media? God can ask you these questions because eventually someone has provided us all this and he holds the right to question, the creator, the owner holds the right to question if his property is being damaged. But God was kind enough to let us use it the way we want, but we humans who have contributed nothing in someone else's life holds no right question the most. We have no right. What we have is jealousy, envy, and a tendency to compare ourselves with others. You don't have any right to question them, but definitely your words and question have the power to force someone to feel bad and feel depressed. That's the power of your words. A life that you can't give but can force someone to end. One neighbor, then other relative same questions again and again. It hits the child's brain and forces them to take as big step as suicide and we act as a silent killer. Let's be honest with ourselves. When we ask or judge someone's child we somewhere feel happy, thank god my child is not a failure, but when we have this feeling, we are definitely failing as a human. If you want to compare we should compare ourselves with our old version. Have we ever improved or even try to improve? Ask your self this. We need to grow as a society not just as individuals. Growth is through love, compassion, service. We have been told that we grow through competition, by taking, by receiving, by comparing. It's a lie that the world has sold us. We grow through giving, serving, and offering. That's the ultimate growth we as a society should aim at. We don't have to be best than others, but we have to be best than our previous version. We don't have to aim at uplifting ourselves only, but uplifting others too. If we realize this small fact this world will become a better place to live. We should wink at our responsibilities no longer. Ask yourself - What role do you play in society?- A silent killer or an uplifter of humanity.
