Human life and being human


I wonder why we have so many discussions on the purpose of life and who am I ?

Our soul has taken a body of a human being in this birth. We are duty bound to take care of this soul in this form.

Then shouldn’t our first query be , am I doing  justice to this life or not ? Have I really been a human being? Let’s be honest with ourself.

Have I been a good father, son, mother, wife, daughter , husband , friend etc….meaning ,  have I honestly live up to all the relationships I have had in this birth?
Have I been a good citizen, a good neighbour or a compassionate human being towards others?

In this human form we are bestowed with senses, desires, emotions and intellect which come as a package deal with this birth. We have to learn to rule over our senses and emotions and not let our life be ruled by them. When our desires and emotions rule over us, then we are gripped with negatives like , greed, anger and hatred. Then we stop being human.

Life teaches us that karma is in our control  but its results are not in our control. Gita also says so.

I feel we should just go with the flow of life first doing justice to this life before we think anything beyond this life.

I offer all my acts to the Lord in devotion . May He guide and be with me always in all my actions
