Human Being And Being Human

Human Being And Being Human

Are human beings trying to make it in a world that is rapidly losing its understanding of being human?

As beautifully quoted by Mehjoor; having bodily features like a human being and being human are two different expressions. The variance between these two literary terms is that human being refers to our biological nature as a member of the Homo sapien species while being human refers to the qualities and characteristics that make us compassionate, empathetic, and capable of moral reasoning. It is about embodying the best aspects of humanity.
Being human is not the greatness of humanity but lies when a person reflects himself as humane, as it teaches us to treat others with kindness, compassion, and empathy. It helps us to create a harmonious and understanding society where people support and care for one another. Humans have the ability to think critically. We have a unique capacity for moral reasoning, understanding, and making ethical decisions. All these attributes make us truly special, and different from animals and make being human a truly remarkable experience.
We should try to inculcate beliefs, values, principles, and morals in our lives as they guide our behaviour and decision-making. All these attributes help us to know what is right, wrong, good, or bad. We must show honesty, kindness, fairness, integrity, and respect for others that, in a way, shape our lives. They serve as a compass in navigating our actions.
According to me, cultivating a positive mindset improves one’s life. It is important to focus on self. It is important to focus on self-care, surround oneself with supportive people and practice gratitude. Shaping life cannot be attributed to any one goal; it is dynamic, and for that, we need to take care of our physical, social, emotional, and psychological aspects. We should set goals and celebrate small victories that can also contribute to a positive lifestyle. Remember, positivity and making correct choices at the right time align with a good and happy life. The choices that we make shape our life forever.
“Every human being is capable of spiritual greatness; it is just that they are identifying with their limitations. They are not identifying with the possibility of the immensity of being human.” – Sadhguru
