Once Upon A time There Was A Humanity...

Dear Readers..


Humanity can be defined as quality of being human; the peculiar nature of human being, by which he is distinguished from other beings. Being human does not mean that an individual possesses humanity.

If you want to understand the quality of humanity in an individual take note of what he does for people who give nothing back in return to the favor they have offered. Humanity means helping others at times when they need that help the most, humanity means forgetting your selfish interests at times when others need your help.

Humanity means extending unconditional love to each and every living being on Earth. A perfect example of humanity can be demonstrated by the following story.

A king with a kind heart once saw a pigeon and an Eagle fighting. He possessed the ability of communicating with the birds and animals. The pigeon asked the king to save him from the eagle. The king told the eagle that he is ready to pay any price in return for saving the pigeon. The eagle asks the king to give him the equal amount of flesh to the weight of the flesh of the pigeon. Agreeing to the Eagle’s condition, the king starts chopping off his own flesh equal to the flesh of the pigeon. After donating a little bit of his flesh, he still finds the pigeon heavier. Finally he surrenders the whole of himself to the Eagle to eat. That is the moment when both the Eagle and the pigeon turn into angels who appeared on the earth to test the extent of the king’s humanity. The king is now rewarded with the most precious rewards and heaven after life for his deed of humanity.

It is really important that each individual must understand the importance of humanity in their day to day lives. It is important to understand one important fact; an individual’s life is successful not by the number of degrees he or she attains but by the degree of humanitarian activities that individual is into on a day to day basis.

Humanitarian activities should never be performed in order to achieve fame or to gain a status symbol. You can easily achieve fame by the work you do. Lifting the heavy bag of an old woman is humanity, helping a disabled to cross the road is humanity, helping your mom in doing work is humanity; in fact helping anyone who is in need is humanity.
