The interesting part of all human endeavor is that the one interested in solving the problem gets only limited 60-70 years where (s)he is continuously evolving and learning. So is it worth trying changing the world? Our beliefs, thoughts and action are so fragile and getting molded over the times. We all keep arguing, convincing and demonstrating our point of view. At times indulge in endless debates. The continuous flow of analyzing and interpreting history, experiences and perceived knowledge in deciding good and bad of this world goes on. Endless.
This is very common in discussion that we elevate an issue to an intellectual height and try others to comply to the ideal utopian situation. No one disagrees with the utopia however if people agree to it on face value; the reality of non-conformity of actions will make people feel hypocrite. In situations most of us need a confirmation on the thought we present and the defeat of people around is taken as a subject of teaching the fellow. This never works. This creates chaos and the whole purpose of healthy discourse is nullified.
All of us carry three Influence Domain (ID). The one ID is the self ID. How much we influence ourselves to follow a good idea. Without going to ask “why don’t they think like me?”, self ID takes in account how much we follow the same idea and how coherent “I am” in my thoughts and talks. And how much coherent “I am” in my talks and action. The difference between our thoughts and talks is “Hypocrisy” and the difference between our talks and action is “Personality Corruption”. Self ID should be of high integrity. When you advise others the correct way to Salah you must first think how punctual are you in Salah? At a level next you may think further to an ideal conceptual height about the ultimate objective and connection. This will make yourself more interested in enhancing self ID.
It is interesting to note that the ideal perfect practices are not to be discussed and debated, however it is a matter of devotion and practice. The gray areas of disagreement should not lit brighter than the shiny colorful fruits of benefits.
We quickly jump on the next Influence Domain i.e. Neighbors Domain. What prompts us to correct others? This is the key to ask. Do we really love a person and want that person to change or we need a certification of approval from my friend over my process of execution of certain stuffs. At times mostly we treat ourselves on the righteous origin and try to change the world. Please note that behavior changing is not an instantaneous affair. In whatever religion or school of thought you believe in there is always a space to accept the differences and do not make “Love” as a hostage of “Rules”. Either you love your neighbor or not, this is always hypocritical if you bring abstract rules to justify love and hatred.
This is really impossible if you want to bring people across family, friends, community and country to same method of executing things. This will never happen as this has never happened ever in history. The more you try, the more you will kill. You may justify this in the name of religion, nationality or hypothetical geographical border. The real solution is self awareness and being patient in understanding others. This may take ages or may not happen in your lifetime, however your effort will transcends to coming generations.
The third ID is what you establish with you and your’s true believe. Whether it is God as you conceptualize in religion or your raw intellect in Atheism. This is your affair, your sincerity and your fuel which defines you and your intent.
