Why are you on EP?
My answer | Rating (1)
Because it is one of the interesting Internet communities, where I can learn about the world, human beings and their relation. And more interestingly, it is the place where I can enjoy asking and answering all sorts of questions. This will last perhaps eternally, because the mysteries of the universe are eternal mysteries! Scientists will keep on seeking for the particle of God, and divine philosophers seeking God.
I sincerely congratulate the EP admin for wisely maintaining this free and open forum.
Most of us think that we have the perfect answers for all questions. We proudly think that all people are stupid, except ourself! They are so stupid that they use narcotics, alcohol, cigarettes. They are so stupid that they cannot make billions of dollars by cheating the ignorant and the poor. They are so stupid that they use dirty water, poisonous food, luxury cars. They are so stupid that they do all sorts of bad things that bring our world to the brink of destructive abyss.
They are stupid because they don’t learn like us, they don’t think like us, they don’t act like us. That is why they deserve misery, suffering, death. We wouldn’t care, if their wrong living will only destroy themselves. But, the bitterness is that their wrongdoings also affect us tremendously. We call them to rethink, they don’t care. We punish them, they don’t fear. We want to negotiate with them, they sabotage all negotiations. Why are they like that?
Because, they are invisible. None of them exist. Only we the wise people exist. We finally fail in all our efforts!
Yes, we fail, because we don’t know that they are we ourselves. We don’t know that we are ignorant, we are bad, we are arrogant. We are not only arrogant against the human race, we are arrogant even against God. God sends His Messenger down to teach us, and we kill His Messenger with all pride. Who is God, Who is that Messenger Who boldly claims to be our Educator?
And, because we have no Educator, we roam around the planet in the darkness of our ignorant mind in wonder, suffering and despair! Now, should we stop for a second to rethink, or should we keep on behaving with self-righteousness and blame the invisible ‘they’ for our destruction?
I am thankful to God that, one by one, many individuals have rethought, have turned to God for guidance and no longer blamed the invisible ‘they’. These individuals try to educate themselves with the counsels of God and happily bear the sufferings of their former and actual wrongdoings.
Yes, we are real, and we are responsible for our own destinies.
