The Humanness in Human Values!

Humanity is fast straying away into oblivion, this I see daily in all aspect of our lives. Society and communities that upholds our moral values is fast decaying, the elders have become muted because the tales of yester years is now fringe stories with no effects to cause change and reflection. Now I’m asking you-yes ‘you’, where are the human values to be derived from and how are they to be developed?

Human values are born along with human birth. They exist in union with the self and relative to the individual. Unfortunately, man today separates himself from human values and yet wants to live as human beings. To recover human values, man has to take the spiritual path. However great an intellectual you may be, however great one may be as a scholar or a man of learning, you have to acquire humanness. Without humanness, scholarship and intellectual eminence are of no value to society. It is only when man cultivates humanness that society will shine with radiance and the nation and the world will progress.

Humanness can be promoted only through spirituality and not by any other means coz even religion has it own high walls and sects. Just as a seed can sprout only when it is planted in the soil and watered, human values can grow only in a spiritual soil. If a man wants to cultivate human values, he has to apply the manure of spirituality to his heart, water it with love so that human values will grow. Human society needs essentially fellow-feeling and unity. When these two are present, humanness will flourish. Control of senses and being considerate for the next man beside or opposite you is an important human value.

I dont want to sound all religious, stripping down the normal spiritual rhetorics on you and listing the do’s and don’ts portraying God as one macho man with a serious face that does not smile, rather I believe human values start from: “Loving yourself and loving your neighbour as yourself. Let this be foundation and all other elements will fall through as you journey on in life.”

Live in the moment, maximize the moment. Let humanity be the focal point of your engagement with people before color, race or creed and if possible do away with the race conundrum and see a being, in the image and likeness of the creator. Explore the humanness in your being and let’s build a better and progressive coexisting society.
