Who defines what we want?

Who defines what we want? We do for ourselves or them?   There are always people around us imposing their views on us. They tell us what they have, what we should have, what we should not have, what we should want, what we should need and so on, so forth. There are more advertisements these days on the TV than it used to be in our childhood. A thirty minutes program barely contains fifteen minutes of real program material, rest all are advertisements.

Magazines are no different.   Roads, highways, shopping malls, parks, movie theaters – all of them carry so much of advertisements these days that they are able to force their objectives on us, through these adverts. No wonder, we live other people’s life, what they impose on us, what they want us to live.

It becomes expensive and complicated, but we are still fine. Because we always look outside for what they are saying, what they are doing. Our whole existence has become all about others.

  • An adult human body contains approximately 100 trillion cells.
  • Humans produce about 10,000 gallons of saliva in a lifetime. Saliva is required for taste—until food is dissolved by saliva, we cannot taste it.
  • There are about 9,000 taste buds on the surface of the tongue, in the throat, and on the roof of the mouth. Taste buds contain chemoreceptors that respond to chemicals from food and other substances that are dissolved by the saliva in the mouth.
  • Hundreds of billions of neurons carry electrical signals that control the body from the brain and the spinal cord.
  • The average human head has about 100,000 hairs.
  • The circulatory system of arteries, veins, and capillaries is about 60,000 miles long.
  • The heart beats more than 2.5 billion times in an average lifetime.

Do we still think, we don’t have much?   How much is our need? Much of what we need to feel happy, we already have within us.

Cool, hey?   Do we think creating a mobile, iPad, laptop, missiles, a rocket or an atom bomb is more complicated or creating the human body itself? The creator has not only created everything within us, but also has kept everything outside, in order for us to sustain, survive and enjoy!   Do we realize?
