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.

Discussing Osho’s Concept: ‘Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness.’

Published

on

Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness is a chapter in Osho’s book, The Hidden Mystery. I fell in love with this chapter because here, Osho provides deep insights into astrology. I love astrology because it reminds me of the many mysterious things about the universe.

Anyway, in the chapter, Osho introduces astrology by claiming that its fundamental laws originated from India since astrological calculations require mathematics which uses digits that were invented in India. He then proceeds to provide the following enlightening ideas.

 

  • Human Beings Are Connected to The Stars

The Sumerians realized that human beings are related to the stars because the stars are responsible for disasters that strike the world. Chijevsky, a Soviet Scientist, gained interest in this idea, and after studying it he realized that nuclear blasts that occur on the sun (the biggest star) cause wars on our planet.

It’s hard to either accept or reject this idea because it’s also hard to either prove or disapprove it. However, the idea might be true because everything in the universe is connected, and maybe this connectedness is what causes the changes in the solar system to affect our planet.

 

  • A Human Being Becomes Sick When He Fails to Be In Tune With The Musical Harmony in The Solar System

There was a certain musical harmony in the solar system when you were born. This harmony affects your health all your life, and living out of tune with it results in sickness.

I think this musical harmony is what we refer to as the Zodiac sign, and Osho believes that to be healthy, we must live in alignment with it.

 

  • The Moon Affects Us.

If the moon greatly influences the water in the ocean, and the proportion of salt in the water in our bodies is similar to that of the salt in the ocean, how then can we firmly conclude that the moon does not affect us?

The moon affects human beings, and many studies have shown that various phases of the moon affect insanity levels. Many ancient societies also believed that the phases of the moon affected people’s behavior. The movies also try to indirectly tell you that the moon affects us. Have you watched in movies how the full moon makes some people turn into werewolves? Just Open Your Eyes, and You Shall See.

 

  • All Animals (Including Humans) Have an Intuitive Source.

Many studies have confirmed that animals can sense climatic changes and impending disasters. Birds usually know when it’s about to snow, and some domestic animals know when it’s about to rain. In Japan, there is a bird which flies away 24 hours before an earthquake. We also have this intuitive source that most of us can’t access because we rely so much on our intellect.

I firmly agree with Osho because studying history made me realize that all animals including humans are intuitive but we humans, lost our intuitive abilities because the modern society became so obsessed with intellectual advancement. We focus on analyzing, researching and critical thinking instead of depending on our gut feeling to understand the universe.

 

  • The Future is not Uncertain

According to Osho, the future exists in the present, and so, we can know our future if we open the window of the present moment. Osho believes that ignorance and lack of knowledge about this idea are what makes us believe that the future is uncertain.

I don’t know what opening the window of the present moment means, and therefore, I ask for your assistance in determining what Osho meant.

 “Astrology declares that if by divine grace we can come to know the whole, then the future as such will not exist. But because we do not know the whole – we know only a small fragment – what we don’t know becomes the future.” – Osho

Hope you enjoyed today’s article. Anyway, before I write ‘thanks for reading’ I would love to provide you with a nugget of wisdom. Recently, I realized that only the open-minded people can become wiser. Therefore, never dismiss any piece of information just because it appears delusional.

Remember, the universe is miraculous, and there are many delusional things about it. And for you to understand the universe you must welcome any piece of information and use your gut feeling to assess its validity. Your gut always knows the truth, it is your connection with the universal wisdom.

Thanks for reading. love ya
