It is said that human birth is not easy to achieve. The human being is a complex matter and many people believe that just trying to understand life. We believe that we have to try to understand life and get a grip on the many faces of life because it can be of great value to us to learn fundamental principles of how life is lived fullest. Sometimes, we have to avoid hundreds of extremes, but the other time, it seems, we should pursue them to better understand life. The pure joy of being alive emerges when we are fully present and life is in balance.
Being a good human being means different things to different people. People try their best to follow the cultural norms of good human behaviour. And yet, there are some challenging circumstances in every human being’s lifespan, when his values and morals are tested.
Every individual should maintain good physical hygiene, and mental and emotional health, as this is the basis of all good human behaviour.
A good person teaches other people with respect, care and compassion.
We as human beings are creative and with our will and hard work, we can achieve anything in our life. The happiest man on this planet is one who serves humanity. Real happiness is the inner satisfaction you can get from society, no matter how rich you are, you can not buy inner happiness.
A human being also has to become an adult physically. We need only survive by appearing our hunger and thirst and avoiding fatal accidents and diseases unlike, physical maturity, emotional growth is in our hands.
The universal end most commonly sought after are security and pleasure – artha and karma. The remaining two purwharthas- dharma and moksha- can be accomplished by a human being. Artha may be in the form of cash or liquid assets, a real home, a good name , influence or power of any kind.
Seeking pleasure is another purushartha called Karma. It also takes many forms. For example, sensory pleasures may be anything from seafood or ice cream onwards. Anything that satisfies our senses, that, please our minds, that touches our hearts and evokes a certain application, is known as Karma.
There is another form of pleasure in watching the stars, enjoying the sunrise and sunset or drawing and painting scenery.
Now, there is a third Purushartha, dharma. It is pleasure born of harmony, deprived of friendship, sharing, helping another person and so on. If you enjoy it, what you do, life is simple and joyed. Not hurting someone or doing the right thing at the right time, for instance, giving joy – if not immediately but later. As we grow in our understanding , our dharma also grows.
The more we mature, we are the more dharma we are. Without violating dharma, doing what is to be done, pursuing artha, and karma, security and pleasure.
So people adapt themselves to circumstances, such as water moulds itself to the teapot.
Most of the time, we are not living life, just thinking about life.
We, people, make mistakes in life but learn to handle the obstacles in life by
1) be honest and direct
2) be helpful
3) listen to others
4) act locally
5) always be polite
6) be respectful
7) let go of anger
Thus this way, I think we all be healthy and joyful.
