Most of us have this belief that we are a good responsible human being. Are we? What are the criteria that qualifies us to be in the good human club. Is it that one who has never harmed anyone and is always ready to help.
For some this may be and for many it may not qualify as being the criteria. For some it may be listening to the inner voice and following it as what is right or wrong. Now what is right or wrong depends what according to that individual is right and wrong. For some right or wrong changes depending on the circumstances. Many believe that they not a good human being and always want to be in that state of mind. The reason can be that when they compare their actions to that of others..they find other people's action more humane. At the same time there are many who consider themselves to be the a good human being because they are better than those people whose actions are worse then theirs.
There is no one who is perfect in this world. We all have these qualities ,this is what I think. The only thing that may be differs us from each other as far as our nature is concerned is the extent of availability of all those points mentioned above.
Those who try to be good are the ones who come closer to being a good human. The important word here is "try". Results are not that important rather intentions are. I was once told by my professor " The most important thing in life is to be a good human. If you are able to achieve this then you have actually been successful in life".
Without darkness one would not know the value of light, in the same way without the presence of evil one would not value what is good. We all have some good qualities as well as bad.
