Dear Ilites, This question has been pestering me for a long time. What really fascinates us in an individual? I have two scenarios under this topic: 1) The individuals around us with whom we talk and spend time. 2) The popular individuals whom we have not moved personally or not seen them face to face. For example celebrities from all fields. All of us know that our subconscious mind is honest and truthful. I feel, a liking for a person generally develops based on the observations made by our subconscious mind. If you go for in depth observation our subconscious mind does not get attracted by physical appearance. It searches for good virtues in people. So it is obvious that our subconscious mind never allows us to mingle with any people with bad thoughts. It keeps on warning us even when we try to talk with them and restricts us from getting close. Isn't it great that God had kept our subconscious mind pure and watchful? When we come to the second type of individuals, it is known fact that we have not moved with them personally still we get attracted. How? Its true you get attracted first with physical appearance. There is nothing to hide here. We follow them in newspapers and media. Here again the truth is, we get attracted to them thinking that they would be good human beings. Our subconscious mind gauge them with the news that come come about them in media. Yes, it judges with their physical mannerism like how they present themselves in public, the way they dress, their sense of humor etc. So, it is important to realize that why we get attracted to people. At the same time, it is also important to realize that why we do not like a person. Lastly, it is very very very important to self-introspect and understand how we think, how we behave with others, how we speak ill of others and how we can keep our thoughts pure. Besides our day-to-day activities, whatever we do extra (involving our thought, speech and action) we need to do a self-introspection before engaging in it. If each one of us can practice this how peaceful our lives would be? How peaceful our country would be? Is this task easy or hard? Now pen your thoughts that originate from your subconscious minds. When I say your subconscious mind, you cannot write what you generally feel, you need to write it from your subconscious mind and after self-introspection :thumbsup.
