Humanism : My thoughts
Humanism, a passion and belief to be one. Many people have different ideas, different views about it. Some people (mainly the religious leaders etc.) think or say that their own religion is the way to follow humanism or reach the humanity (In this regard I have seen only one leader’s video, but I think most of them think like that). If they really think like that then as per me they are stupid. We will never be able to follow it through a specific religion as it is not a religion, it is a belief. Also I am sure many other people are there in every corner of the world who wants to or already following it and believing it for a better world.
Humanism is a beautiful bridge of belief over the ocean of all the religions for everybody and this bridge is supported by pillars from all religions. No one is forced to walk on that but if you walk on that then you will be happy and you can make others happy. It is also a belief of positivity, positive thinking and positive working.
Humanism is not something new. It has been already been introduced or described in different part of history. I think if you read religious books with open mind and if you can study history looking for this, then you will definitely find many things. In this case we can also remember Sai baba, who always used to say “sabka malik ek” (In English the closer meaning will be — Everybody belongs to one). To be one, we will have to try to think and act like one. We have to treat each other’s believes with respect. We will have to understand our mistakes and have to work on it.
For humanism no one is asking us to forget your religion. What we have to do is just believe in it and think, work without hurting anybody’s believes and without affecting anyone. Think for all, work for all. We will have to understand each other’s beliefs and respect them. Just a simple example here — some people do not eat meat, some people eat but do not eat some specific animal’s meat and some people eat everything. My point here is we should respect every-bodies choices; we should not tell or force anyone to eat or not to eat (Unless there is a valid or scientific reason). Also I have seen people differentiating in meats, we should not do that because meat is meat whether is chicken, mutton or beef etc., everything is animals flesh. We should consider ourselves as one family with different choices.
At last just want to say that I am not a humanist but I am trying to be a better human and also will like to see the whole world trying along with the people who have already done lot and doing. We are humans and we will only survive with humanism. So try until you die to make your society, your world a better place to live.
