I am a Humanist
The human being is a very interesting piece of creation in nature, very different from all other life forms. We have five instruments to engage with the outer through world our sensory organs like eyes ears nose skin and tongue. They constantly identify and generate data. We use our mind “the inner instrument” to make sense of all the data and information that the sensory organs bring in.
The five sensory organs capture data in various “forms”-Visual form, Audible form or in the form of taste, touch, smell. These “forms” are recognized as matter, material and objects. Hence they become our objective reality.
But it is our mind, which gives any meaning or significance to those objects. A big car may indicate to one mind that there is a lot of space in the car and to another mind it may create a sense of smallness indicating that in comparison to my “small” car that I have, this is a “big” car, leading to a sense of inadequacy or a feeling of jealousy or some residual negative feeling.
As a connoisseur of life, I am constantly discovering so much about the Mystery & Magic of life! So how do we make meaning of our life?
It is clear that our mind keeps giving interpretations and importance to the various forms identified by our sensory organs. This meaning or significance created by our mind leaves us with comfort or discomfort based on the maturity of our mind. An immature mind is trapped in the comparison of forms. A mature mind comfortably recognizes that in all forms the common element is the SAME “energy-spirit-consciousness”, which is discovered through the process of self-awareness.
To such a mind the magic is clear and the mystery is solved. We all may be different forms but in our core we are all one. WE ARE ALL ONE WORLD…WAAOW!
We spend 15 to 20 years of our life to learn about the external world and the objective reality. It’s time for us to dive deep into ourselves, become self-aware and discover the huge gift of life which we all possess-the opportunity of living life unlimited.
This understanding will help us grow individually as a person and collectively as teams, organization or communities and even as a better world. I seek to create this "WAAOW" understanding, and facilitate action for personal & professional growth that is Empowering, Collaborative and Enjoyable!
This truly for me is the joy of being a humanist.
