5 Key Reasons Why We Talk About Others

Published

on

Sometimes, when we meet with our friends, the main thing we do is to talk about other folks. We often talk about what some of our friends, relatives, or foes are doing, and where they are in the journey of life. Although we know that talking about others is a waste of time and energy, we still do so every now and then.

As usual, I always diagnose a poor behavior so that I know where it comes from, and for this reason, I thought about the reasons why we talk about others, and I discovered five primary causes of this behavior.

  1. Human Beings Are Social Creatures

Ancient human beings were highly social creatures because they lived in groups, and depended on them for survival. As social creatures, they were deeply concerned about the whereabouts of other members of the society because they wanted to know if everyone was safe. Moreover, their social nature made them want to know if other people’s actions aligned with the society’s norms and values.

For this reason, they always talked about other people so that they know where they are, and if they were respecting the social norms and values. This need to know other people’s behaviors and their whereabouts persisted into modern times, and for this reason, we find talking about other people irresistible.

  1. We Want To Know Our Social Status

 “Social status is the honor or prestige attached to one’s position in the society. It may also refer to a rank or position that one holds in a group.” – Definitions.net

Today, we value our social status because it determines how people will treat us and the type of friends and spouse we’ll have. Besides this, we think the social status is important because most of us use it to determine our self-worth.

For this reason, we love talking about others so that we know our social status and assess our self-worth. We want to know if our socio-economic lives are better or worse than others so that we know our place in the society.

  1. It feels good

Sometimes we feel good when we talk about people that have more problems than us. Discussing these people makes us know that our problems are small compared to most people’s problems.

Also, talking about others feels good because it enables you to get into someone’s life. It’s always fun to know how other people live, and this is why we like watching movies, and reality television as they allow us to enter into the lives of other people.

  1. We have some emotion around those we mostly talk about

We love talking about some people because we love them dearly. For instance, our love for our spouses makes us talk about them in their absence because we can’t stop thinking about them. Similarly, we also love talking about the people we hate because it enables us to cope with our own feelings.

Personally, I have realized that jealous individuals often love talking about others the most because that is the only way they can release their suppressed feelings and emotions.

  1. To Pass Time

Talking about people is one of the best time passing activity. Sometimes when talking with friends, we exhaust all topics and realize that we can pass time by talking about other people. We might not have any emotional connection with these individuals, but we just talk about them because we have nothing else to do.

Have you ever realized that you mostly talk about other people when you are idle? If you are busy, you’ll seldom find time to talk about others because you’ll have many time passing activities.

In conclusion

I believe it’s not bad to talk about others when we are doing it out of love. However, this behavior is bad if you do it out of comparison, hate, or jealousy because you will start directing a large percentage of your time and energy on the people you are talking about. Moreover, you’ll build feelings of resentment if you continuously talk about the people you hate.

To avoid wasting time talking about others, you must always use your free time to do things that will make you progress in your endeavors.

Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker – Part 2

Published

on

Last week, I welcomed you in my mind by sharing my most powerful meditations. Here are more intriguing meditations I’d love to share with you.

Enjoy:

1.Meditations on Human Beings as the Only Animals that Are Suffering

Despite the decline of the natural world, animals are not suffering. They are still living the way they lived when they were created. On the other hand, despite our easy access to basic needs, we are the only animals that are suffering. This suffering is caused by our obsession with the future, over-focusing on material wealth, and the lack of trust in the universe/God/Infinite Intelligence.

2.Meditations on The Ego and Creativity

The ego constantly thinks about many things. For instance, it constantly worries about losing or gaining material possessions, dressing better than others, maintaining social status, and so on. This overthinking associated with the ego kills creativity because creativity only lives in a calm mind.

3.Meditations on a Higher State of Consciousness

A higher state of consciousness is any state that allows an individual to gain a deeper understanding of life, reality, and the inner-self. It results in an individual feeling that she is connected to a Higher Power and all living things. Besides, it increases an individual’s depth of perception and leads to the realization that all human beings are connected to Infinite Intelligence.

4.Meditations on Virtue

Virtue leads to an amazing life. For instance, you’ll live an amazing life if you cultivate the virtue of love because you’ll always wish the best for others. Besides, you’ll avoid temptations that can ruin your life when you cultivate self-discipline, and you’ll know how to navigate through life when you cultivate the virtue of wisdom.

5.Meditations on How the Illuminati Makes us Ignorant

The Illuminati ensures we have several TV shows to watch so that we never have the time to question our beliefs. It keeps us busy with social media and makes us focus on amassing material possessions hence resulting in us not having enough time to question reality and understand our true nature.

6.Meditations on Infinite Intelligence as the Most Aware Being

The more intelligent a being is, the more aware it becomes. Human beings and mammals are more aware than insects because of their high levels of intelligence. As well, insects are more aware than bacteria because they are more intelligent.

For this reason, the most intelligent being- Infinite Intelligence- is more aware than all creatures. It’s highly aware of its existence and that of other creatures.  This means it knows everything about us, including where we are, what we want, and so on.

Concluding Remarks

Always find time to think deep, and you’ll realize amazing insights that will help you in the journey of life.

The Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker

I love spending my time meditating on life, and I often note down the thoughts that pop into my mind while meditating. Today, I’ll welcome you into my meditations by sharing some of these thoughts with you.

Enjoy:

1.Meditations on Thoughts

The first thing that created everything was thought. Creation could not have happened without the ability to think. Our thoughts can thus create worlds, and we should master them to ensure they only create good worlds for us.

2.Meditations on Infinite Intelligence/God as Our Father and Mother

As the mother, she is constantly providing all creatures with everything they need to survive, and as a father, he hardens all creatures by giving them challenging situations that force them to grow into their full potential.

3.Meditations on Suffering

We suffer not because of our experiences but because of our thoughts regarding our experiences. A thoughtless person – if he exists – seldom suffers because he focuses on the awareness of the experience instead of what he wants or doesn’t want about the experience.

4.Meditations on The Lack of Inner Peace

We seldom attain inner peace because we are always thinking about the future. We never relax and focus on the now. When we focus on the now, we’ll attain inner peace because the present moment is always okay.

5.Meditations on the Intuition

Ancient folks knew many things without researching. They knew about poisonous, medicinal, and edible plants. They knew about the stars, energy fields, the third eye, how our emotions affect the body, and so on.

Their primary source of knowledge was their intuition. We, the modern people, have lost our intuitive powers because we over-focus on acquiring material possessions. This focus results in the attachment to our possessions hence causing emotions, such as fear and worry, which suppress our intuitive abilities.

6. Meditations on Our Short Term Existence on Planet Earth and What We Must do About It

I just realized that time is flying. Soon we’ll all leave the earth and allow other souls to experience the physical universe. Soon, our bodies we’ll decay, and we’ll be bones. We’ll be gone forever, and we’ll never experience our current life form again.

For this reason, we must appreciate all our moments and everyone in our lives. As well, we must use the only opportunity we have to exploit our physical powers and live to our full potential.

Conclusions

These are some of the things I often think about when I am alone. I believe deep thinking is more reliable in providing us with enlightening knowledge than reading books written by mainstream historians, scientists, and philosophers, whose main aim is to drown us into delusions and prevent us from knowing the TRUTH.
