What do you feel when you see a soldier?
Sense of security and pride. If you notice your teacher shopping in
market, you first reaction as teenager would be to change the route and
if he/she shows up, then greet respectfully. These are general profiles.
What are general impression you have about people around when you do
not know anything about them? A bespectacled girl seems intelligent and
geeky. You feel need to help elderly or blind person cross street
because they seem vulnerable.
Every field has an associated
attitude. You cannot find a person not patriotic being an army man for
long, if he gets selected somehow. Similarly, an insensitive person
cannot be a social worker. These feelings are thus, important part of
our life. They make us, define us.
This topic came up because
nowadays, people are seeking holistic approaches such as meditation,
out-of-box jobs, vacations to get rid of tension (mental and physical
both). They are actually running away from the world. I do not say that
gurus, especially spiritual gurus are being impractical but true guru
will help you stay in the world, help fight corruption and inefficiency,
impart training to inspire, stay motivated, and solve problems.
gurus appear very balanced due to their simple yet powerful thinking.
These usually happen due to being in connection with holistic world,
holistic teachings, and oneself. There is strange aura about them when
you see them and you think for a while to be like them. This is
characteristic of their personality and cannot be of everyone else.
in materialistic world, it is important to feel happy, sad, angry,
disgusted, fearsome, etc. You cannot exist a day without your feelings
unless otherwise you are a monk. A child is taught about fire,
electricity, water, wind, insects and other hazards sometimes by making
them feel little pain or putting an example before them and acting like
crying or showing being sick. Your body responds to hazards only because
you know they are dangerous to you.
If you are scared that being
tense about a problem gives you health problems then the solution is
not turning back from the world. Face it. There are many ways to solve
problems. First and most basic is by talking and sharing your problem
with others and especially to those around the same situation. If it is
richness or inundated fame that is making your back off, then indulge in
some social work. Seek help from medical counselors to get out of
situation but stop feeling negative about life. Religious places provide
detox from life misery and refresh a person to accept it with more
energy and faith. It is good to go there once a while but stop moaning
every once in a while when challenges surface.
discipline and understanding towards life and you will see you can
handle infamous remarks on your work and other incidents. Things cannot
go far because even the professional environment has ethics that
resemble with human virtues. Feel your best and give others a reason to
smile. You might even feel light in your heart listening to complaining
boss when you know certainly that you can solve the matter within
reasonable time frame.
